Your VP would still be 33% as you could have raised/called when you were in SB and BB - the tracker will only exclude walks where action was folded round to your BB. As for the PFR, this generally means 2-bets so will also be 33% given you raised once out of three hands where you had the option to. Your 3-bet and 4-bet stats are recorded separately and ...

Based on figures from http://www.flopturnriver.com/poker-strategy/pyroxenes-common-flop-odds-19147, the odds of flopping 2 pair or better, not including draws, is just over 5.6%. Including flopping a straight or flush draw, the odds are just a hair over 27%. If your facing a raise and re-raise, you should probably fold, as you're not getting the right ...

I don't think your logic makes sense. I think you're right that if another player in late position calls, it will be leaving attractive odds for the players still to act. However, that's still a big barrier with the stack sizes of less than 50 bb. If there's just a single caller (say it's the initial raiser), there's 19 bb in the pot before the flop, so the ...

As with every raise, pot odds will improve if there are callers before you. Nevertheless, pot odds will grow less fast, since the raise is significantly larger than the initial pot. Also, first you speak of a raise by 350, but in your calculations you use a raise to 350. I would not consider a raise to 350 extremely large. Furthermore, there are more things ...

I am a winning cash game player and have been playing the cash games for over 25 years. I always look at my hand right away, and have noticed that most players do the same. The reason for this is because if I and every other player at the table look at their cards in turn, then the game will slow down to a crawl... This is not good for the game. There are ...

With free tournaments and games, playing a lot of hands is a good thing, it helps one learn how a lot of hands play. The object of free play is to play so one can learn. Then there are others who are just having fun, serious poker when there is nothing serious involved is not fun. At any rate free money poker games are not really poker, they are just ...

Well in general, unlike what your last statement suggests, in case you think that your 3-bet raise amount is not correct as it might be called by other than the original raiser, you should fix this by raising more not less (with QQ in early position). Remember, your ultimate goal is to play heads up with QQ and try to control the pot size unless you hit your ...

The generally accepted response to playing against loose players is to tighten up. It's not easy to do, because it's hard to watch hand after hand being won with K8o and other garbage, but the numbers back you. Change your strategy once you have a much better read of the players around you.

As everybody buys in with 100 or more blinds, cash game goal is usually more lose than tournament. You have to enlarge your preflop range, especially in late position, to see more flops. You also have to strenghten your post flop play, as everything starts here in the hand. Get disciplined and don't play with your ego, the count is made at the end of the ...

I once spent an afternoon analyzing 7-2 with Poker Probe (An old program by Mike Caro). I was curious if there was any situation that justified making a call with 2-7. PP was a pretty simple program, you could run a hand against a configurable hand, or a number of random hands. It for example could tell you how often a particular hand would hold up against a ...

For me, the best way to play Aces is to sometimes limp-in and other times raising preflop. In the games I play, if I raise 15 to 20 it doesn't surprise me to to get 3 to 5 callers. The problem I run into, is let's say I get 3 callers of 20 dollars, now there 80 in the pot and, even with a good flop for Aces, it's so hard to know where my opponents are at. ...
