You Decide

Waffles: I think this was a brilliant play on my part. I applied pressure the whole way through. I just ran into a moron. I can not see how he makes the call pre-flop, on the flop, or on the turn. The only place he even slowed down was the turn. I felt he thought I had the straight so I pushed. He waited for a long time before calling with a flush draw and 1 card left. I think this is the way you should play poker. I can find nothing wrong with my play except the end result.

Don: You are a fucking Donkey, you had Queen high, you will never win that way.

You Decide.

You forgot to include my favorite lines of the argument:

Waffles: I am like Ansel Adams in a kindegarten class

Waffles: my talent is wasted

You have to realize that whenever you make a bluff against a calling station, it is you who is making the mistake. You already know he will call with anything, and yet you still decide to bluff him anyway. That is pointless, and it is you who is the making horrible errors whenever you do this.

You have to consider the texture of the board and how much your bet actually applies pressure.

First, your raise post flop put forced him to call 1600 into a 5600 pot. He's getting more than 3-1 on his money. He flopped open ended and an overcard... he's certainly not folding there.

Then there's more than 10K in the pot when you bet less than 4K into a board with straight and flush draws available. There are a million and one hands that HAVE to call you there.

It was a poorly timed bluff with not enough chips. It was a bad play, sorry.

Fishies don't fold draws to flushies.


If you had checked the turn he would have checked too, and if you had bluffed after the river you would have won this hand.

cj's right about your fold equity too.

those over cards never seem to come when you bluff do they...they sure as shit don't for me.

I would rather push with king and a made 3rd pair that 2 over cards. really, they never hit for me.

Sorry to hear about your girl, I hope she is doing o.k. today.

"I am sorry man. Sometimes the truth does hurt though. I will tell you what I would tell anyone else I would hope would try and get better at poker: LEARN HOW TO FOLD."

I've lost my taste for going broke with less than quality holdings. You should too.
