      a 100/200 hand in the beginners section? hehe lol :D

      Anyway i have no clue abouth this hand. Was the MP just bluffing? Didnt he have a heart and was afraid that korn actually had one? Or was korn the one making a succesful bluff of his own?

      Actually after posting it i think it wasn't the smartest move i could do.

      i hope nobody who sees this hand will play like this.

      Something like this can you only do in the HIGH limits.

      so DON'T DO THIS AT HOME !!!

      I jsut thought it would be funny because some time ago this hand was discussed in a lot of poker boards.

      but you are right... this hand is funny. i hope korn showed him his cards after he folded :P

      you said this hand was discussed in a lot of boards. what was the conclusion ?
      and what do korn or maybe stoxtrader say about this hand ?

      Korns comment was that he had a feeling :D
      at 2+2 they didn't like it;
      his argumentation for the river cap was that villain after his 3-bet had either the K :heart: or a pure bluff, which would fold to his cap.

      Btw, what do you think about that? :D

      1 folds, CO raises, 2 folds, Hero calls.

      Flop: (4.33 SB) A:spade: , 2:heart: , 6:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets, Hero raises, CO 3-bets, Hero caps, CO calls.

      River: (8.17 BB) 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets, CO folds.

      Final Pot: 9.17 BB.

      villain was a tag and after his flop 3-bet i "knew" he had a pocket pair and thought i cap it and lead the turn to maybe make him fold it. On the river i didn't think he could call another bet, since i would never value bet a pocket pair here.
      Nuts or balls? :D
      This hand is totally overplayed but i just had that feeling myself. ;)

      the argument on 2+2 were right ... and i don't believe this hand will teach you anything.

      its a cool move (but only if it works :D )

      "This hand is totally overplayed but i just had that feeling myself"

      this says everything ;)

      now we can go on with the "real" hands *g*
