Interesting Comment

While I do think something needs to change in Fluxer's game for him to be a winning player I heard the dumbest comment I have probably ever heard in my life. I think it was from Fuel but I may be wrong. After Fluxer got sucked out on with 77 vs AA this person said "You induce people to suck out on you". Is that the fucking stupidest thing you have ever heard? I mean your saying Fluxer makes people call all in with 77 vs AA.. Is that not a fucking brilliant poker mind? Do you not want people to make that call every fucking day of the week and twice on Saturday? I mean say what you want about the guy.. and he has not won anything yet.. but if the worst thing you can say about him is he induces people to make calls like that then I think he has a bright future.

I can't see Fuel making that comment based on what I've seen and read from him so far... but I could be wrong as well.

He made alot of comments.. but to be fair to Fuel, and because I really thing he is in Jail now getting gang raped, the whole table was driving him insane.. It was alot of fun.

OK I am out of jail.

Here's the thing with LAG play vs TAG play. When a TAG reraises, you fold 77 (or call if the stackare big enough to set mine) and the TAG wins a small pot with minimal SUCKOUT risk.

When a LAG reraises he gets more calls (or rereraises) bringing suckout risk into play ("if" he's ahead going in which he wont be much of the time). Now the LAG wins a big pot or loses a big pot depending on how the cards fall.

Each person has to determine which style is mathematically/emotionally correct for them over the long haul.

You know my game so well, Fuel.

You think I would go all in preflop with worse than 77 for over 100 big blinds in a NL hold 'em cash game.

I'm curious why you would think such, assuming it's not because of the table image I carefully crafted so players like you would fall into the trap of thinking my $15 conintuaion bets with rags (that I was showing) mean that I raise 100+ big blinds preflop without a monster.

Your attempt at rationalizing your decision is very revealing about your personality.

Heres the thing. Fluxer's reputation and playing style (from what I seen) does induce ACTION. ACTION, in turn, leads to more suckouts. So, he is not inducing suckouts. He is inducing ACTION, which is exactly what you want to happen when you have AA against 77. The fact that he got sucked out is merely the results, but not a knock on Fluxer's style or abilities. In fact, I'd say its a testament to his style and abilities.
