I work as a PHP developer at Pentalog where we develop the largest dating site in Europe.

I thrive in challenging environments and am never afraid to get my hands dirty.

My passions include computer programming, psychology and poker.

comment Easy to remember push/fold/callpush table/formula
When you start using formulas and rules instead of having big adaptability, you become predictable...

comment What if you get a straight flush on flop?
What I mean is that, in poker, a correct way to play a hand is subjective and depends A LOT on many factors. So the right way to play your straight flush depends on what type of opponents you're facing, what type of game it is, what your table image is, what their table image is etc. Obviously, folding such a strong hand is not an option. But when it comes to smaller hands (let's say 2 pair), then all those factors can make a huge difference: sometimes it makes sense to fold, other times pushing all-in is the best choice. Which is why the answer is always: it depends.

comment Straight w/ 4 board cards: Reacting to a Nit
You're right, this is a tough one. The villain commited a very large percetange of his stack, so you can definitely be afraid of the nuts (AQ).

comment Is Colin Moshmans Book Still A Relevant Micro SNG Reference
@hmmmm I think that, when it comes to micro-stakes, the fact that the game changes is insignificant. People playing at that level will not take advantage of new strategies anyway...

wow, that board is all over the place. Straight draws, flush draws, sets, full houses, over pairs... Though, I assume that most of these are outside the villain's range...

comment Why is it forbidden to check-raise in some Casino?
It's actually more weird than interesting. If I ever sit down at a table and hear something like this, I would just get up and walk away. This rule would be just too stupid to be acceptable. The one from WSOP which says that you can't talk about your hand during the hand (I hope I remember it correctly :D ) also comes pretty close...
