Poker plays with PokerPeaker - Playing with two pair

I'm playing $25 NLHE on Bodog Poker . I'm dealt A[c]-10[c] in early position. This is always a tricky hand to play in early position. If I were in a tournament, I'd probably raise, and if I got a call, I'd probably play it a little carefully after...

How Would You Play This Hand – RiverChasers

RiverChasers runs a weekly NLHE $10+1 Double-Stack tournament on Full Tilt Poker every Thursday night at 9pm EST. It’s a very good value and has a manageable field. The best part about this tournament is almost half the field comes from a live...

Poker plays with PokerPeaker - Folding trips

I'm playing $25 NL on Bodog Poker. I have A[d] - 3[s]. It's not a terrible hand when it's folded around to you, so I throw in my quarter. I'm on the button, after all, so I'll have position, and it's doubtful the blinds have anything better than...

Profitability

Why do you play poker? Many of us play it for the love of the game...for the competition and adrenaline rush it brings. When it comes down to it though, most of us play it for one reason. To make money...lots and lots of money. It is the dream of...

Poker plays with PokerPeaker – Pushing When You’re Ahead

Pushing when you're sure you're ahead will usually bring people will along for the ride. I'm playing .10/.25 NL on Bodog Poker. I'm dealt 7[h-6 in early position. I call hoping to see a cheap flop. I've never liked suited connectors as much as...

The Gap Concept - Part II

The biggest strength of the Gap Concept is that it forces poker players to be aggressive but it does so with good reasoning behind it. Too many intermediate (and even some advanced) players make the mistake of relying on what cards they hold in...

The Gap Concept

An important concept in poker, especially in tournament poker where survival is paramount and players cannot reach back into their pocket to replenish their stacks, is a concept known as “the Gap Concept.” This concept is outlined by David Sklansky...

Poker Plays with Pokerpeaker - Bet Your Monsters

I am playing Pineapple on Ultimate Bet at a .10/.25 NL table. Pineapple, in case you don't know, is just like 'Hold Em, except you are dealt three cards instead of two. You then discard one of the cards before the flop. Crazy Pineapple plays the...

Table Image – How’s Yours?

Are you feared? Do players prefer you NOT sitting across from them or do they like to get involved in pots with you? What does your table image say about you? You should always try to be aware of your own table image and use it to your advantage...

Attacking the Bubble

Most players fear the bubble. As they near the bubble after surviving several hours of tournament play, they tighten up. We’ve all been there. Finishing on the bubble is probably one of the worst feelings in poker. This is exactly why you should...

Poker Plays With PokerPeaker - Forcing Mistakes From Your Opponents

I'm playing $.10/.25 NLHE on Bodog Poker. I have A-A. I don't remember the suits, but who cares, really? I have A-A! I have the nuts! Who-hoo! I raise to $1.50. It's a big raise, but I like to raise bigger before the flop with a big pair in the...

I Shot the Sheriff

In an old western movie, the Sheriff may have been a hero but at the poker table it is -EV (negative Expected Value.) You seldom see a sheriff in a cash game, except in the occasional low limit game, or home game, where someone often “Keeps ‘em...

Ten Steps to Profitability

Finding it difficult to make a profit playing on sites like Poker Stars, Bodog or Full Tilt? Relax. You're not alone. Most players lose money playing online poker. In fact, some articles suggest that 95 percent of all players lose money...

Poker plays with PokerPeaker - Making a loose call against a loose player

I'm playing on Poker Stars, $25 NL. A player I'm targeting raises to .50. That's what he's raised to every hand. So even though I don't have that great of a hand - it's exactly the kind of hand, in fact, I would pitch if a tighter player raised - I...

Boot Camp - How to get Permission to Play

Kate's used to it by now. The hangdog look in my cheeks. The little glint in my eyes. The slight smirk that makes little crinkles under my nose. The pleading in my voice. "Can I go play poker?" I'm not talking about playing on Poker Stars, Full...

Playing Poker Full-Time, It’s Not Just Fun and Games

My primary source of income comes almost entirely from poker. Mostly, through playing or writing about my experiences. Luckily, I have a loving wife who has a full-time job with benefits. Without the added stability of her job, I couldn’t take a...

Poker plays with PokerPeaker - Folding Aces

I have A-A. I have the nuts. At least, I do right now. Darn that flop. I'm playing $25 NL on PokerStars. I have A[s]-A[c]. I also have no reads on the players, although it seems so far like a pretty normal, tight table. I raise $1.25. It's...

Poker Plays with PokerPeaker – Playing Frustrated

I'm playing $.25/.50 NL on Ultimate Bet. I'm in the middle of a frustrating losing streak, when I've been sucked out on several times and lost to coolers as well. I'm dealt K[c]-A[d]. I raise to $1.75. I get three callers. I don't like to see...

Poker plays with Pokerpeaker - Limiting Your Losses

I'm playing $25 NL in a full ring game on Bodog Poker. I called a raise from late position with K[s]10[s]. I am in middle position. It's mostly a position call. It's not the best call I ever make, but I want to see what happens. I've had a lot of...

Rest and Exercise Can Help You at the Table

When I’m well rested and energized, I play more focused. I make more mistakes when I’m tired, distracted or bored. I try to get to the gym at least a few times a week and I always feel better coming out of the gym than I do going in. That’s what...
