      Hi,


      It's fine the first time around, you can't know if he's bad/aggressive enough to ever raise anything less than a flush and he certainly has a bunch of these in his range.

      Now that you've seen him just monkeying around with top pairs, you should definitely err on the side of re-raising in those spots against him.

      What's up with that nickname by the way..


      Hope it helps.

      Didn't understand the question about my nickname ...
      Thank you for the comment, my opponent effectively won a note :)

      Hi,


      Brelan is French for trips.

      I meant about the "DoigteurFou" thing, which is somewhat French slang for "MadFingerer" or something along those lines.

      Exactly :) , I would transle it that way (or maybe "dirtyfingerer if you take the dirty nuance of "fou" here)
      An old nickname I keep using because I still find it funny (especially when noobs only talk about my nickname in the chat without looking at their cards !)

      Brelan is in fact the word for "three of a kind". In french we have no distinction between "trips" and "set", they are both called "brelan"

      Who said the french language was full of nuances??? ^^
