In this case I would say "Thank you" and muck my cards. Is my personal decision to never show my holecards unless I have to. Poker is an information game so the less information your opponent have the best for you. Your opponent obviously was not happy to be kicked out of the pot, let him keep guessing. Next rounds you could make him pay your good hands ...

Your QQ hand has the greatest value before the flop because it is 1) a made pair and 2) a high one. Once the rocket comes on the flop, your hand loses most of its value, and you should check and fold (calling occasionally to keep people honest) if the rocket comes on the flop, and someone bets. Most people will stay in preflop with A-x. If you are first to ...

Poker players on real poker sites choose their name wisely, by that I mean they want to play there often and choose a real nick like "Destroyer666" or "Billy the Cid" whatever. But they won't go for PEtewr345353 or Hello324234 , it's not about the name only, it's more about the player who choose the name. I sometimes like a rude name like "r4p3tim3" but i ...

If you're playing a Zoom table where you don't necessarily get to pick up on the tendencies of other players, always try to take into account what the rest of the board looks like. For example, when the flop comes A-X-X, do the XX cards give a possible straight/flush draw? If the board is A-9-8 with two clubs and you're getting action, its likely the ...

Poker is a game about ranges. As such, there is no cookie-cutter answer to questions like this. You want to figure out the range of villain, and figure out how best to play against it. For example, if you opened in UTG and villain called from UTG+1 and he does this with a range of {AQ+,JJ-99} then it's probably best simply to check/fold on the flop: he has ...

I dont know how much of an affect it has to be honest, I dont really care what someone's username is or what picture they have, i just play them the same as anyone else. One thing I would say is that the name can sometimes help socially. Using PKR as an example as you have, my name on there is Daddy_Cool (cannot even remember why), this usually gets ...

The gambler's anonymous site has a list of 20 questions as a starter. Some things to note about addictions in general: It is not about the quantity but more about the emotions and behaviour. The CAGE questions can also be applied (in part): Has the person ever tried to Cut down but couldn't? Has the person ever got Angry when questioned about their ...

If I'm the one opening with a raise, I'll represent the Ace/King with a c-bet. If I get called, I'll shut down and look to check-fold to a bet. If somebody calls my c-bet, they almost always have the Ace, or have the Ace beat. From a 2nd level perspective, if I've opened the pot with a raise, the Ace is one of the cards I'm supposed to have in my hand. So ...

There was a fair bit of discussion about this back in the poker boom days on DeucesCracked. The conclusions were mixed (and based on very anecdotal data). Three items of consensus appeared: Names in CamelCase and names that referred to "grinding", "graphs", "ev", "flips" or any other regular slang denoted a "regular" of some sort. Not necessarily good ...

One thing I've seen in tournament play is over betting prior to the flop with JJ-KK if you don't want to see them busted. I try not to do this myself unless I'm short stacked. It is common to see AA by the river since many players will call a typical bet or raise with A+anything. If I have any pocket pair and see an overcard on the flop I'll typically bet ...
