      First of all short handed tables are where the money is at , you can play more hands and there are more cards left in the deck.

      Use this site to find information on players at the table and rate them fish , rock , shark etc .

      http://www.pokertableratings.com

      If the table is full of super tight rocks it becomes a game of stealing blinds.

      What you want is a table with at least 1 fish who is rated F and plays loose etc ..

      Then do this to them .

      Play hand

      Firstly when I saw flop I wasnt very happy to be honest for obvious reasons

      Now if he was a good player he would have AK and have flopped broadway but he didnt raise so I suspected he might have been on a flush draw or he hit a pair .

      I called to see what action he takes on turn, knowing he was a fish he would be turn if he has nuts or check with his flush draw. I hit a monster card on turn and slow played it to see if he was on flush draw or he flopped something good.

      I decide he has a big hand and call to trap him on river .

      The Ah on river was a really bad card for me, it made a flush , which I knew he didnt have and if he had AJ I was beat. However I went with my instinct and put him on a hand like KQ KJ K9 or J10 lol and moved all in.


      Now if he had raised before flop I would have mucked my QJ and he would never have lost ... :) :f_cry:

      I like shorthanded NL holdem with 4 decks and 7 board cards. Creates more action.

      You guys are so basic. How can you not understand how good grailer is? He slowplays sets on draw heavy boards. He overbets his AA, underbets his KK, and makes big calls with hands that he lacks the discipline to fold. He chases draws, he never protects his hand, and he never maximizes the value from his hands.

      MOST IMPORTANTLY; he logs on to the best damn affiliate poker site in the world to show everyone how good he is. Yet time and time again I have seen people show a lack of respect for the grailer. SHAME

      When the guy who raised didnt c bet I didnt want to give away my hand . It would be obvious I flopped a set if I bet the flop dude.

      The turn was actually a bad card for me , it pretty much forced me to check once again ...

      Obviously I have to bet river since there is only 1 player left to act after me and I doubt he will bet .

      Now most of this stuff wont work high limits because the players arent this stupid to fall for it. However at low stakes players love to donate money to us.


      As long as you play tight you will win money .

      Now in this hand below I could easily blast the players out of the pot with my superior hand.

      Preflop I min raise lol ( never min raise they say because you want everyone to fold so you win blinds right ?But wait 10 cents isnt even money, what we want is the money behind the guy , the juicy $5 that will help us get to higher limits so I entice him into my pot. )

      When he limp raised I automatically thought , ok he has something good , AA ?? I re raise him to see if he has a monster hand . He calls :) if he had AA and just called he brilliant move by him , and he will win my stack.

      The player in BB must have something good too , I have no idea what he has , probably a small pair and he wants to hit a set.


      When flop comes I decide to either check the flop or bet the flop really small to induce the villian into thinking I was weak , when anyone worth a damn knows this means Im probably strong because remember the pre flop play ??

      Weak bet on flop makes it look like I missed flop ( he probably thinks I have AK lol ) , now he bets $1 but I just call him because Im not sure about the player in BB yet he folds phew thats a relief because I was worried he had QQ or JJ and flopped a set.


      Then check turn showing that I was on draw lol not! ( cause he thinks Im on a straight draw probably with AK or flush draw ) he moves all in and loses his stack .

      Thanks my friend , fold AJ next time :)

      Play hand
