  1. New poker vlog channel on Youtube!

    Hey guys! Thanks for checking out this post. My name is Lucas and I have been playing poker for several years since college, but still a huge fish...Due to covid-19 lockdown in Hong Kong, my friends and I have been playing a lot of online poker together, and some home games as well. I thought it would be fun to record the action in the form of poker vlogs so I recently started a youtube channel called Slippery Slope Poker I have uploaded 4 episodes thus far. If you want to check out some poker vlogs of low stake games for fun, please check out my channel! Appreciate any feedbacks as well. Thanks a lot!

  2. Hey guys! I have a super interesting hand scenario here that happened during a live game and welcome any thoughts/inputs on how each player should have played their hand. It was a 8-handed game with blinds of HKD 5/10 (US$0.65 / US$1.30). Highlight is that a friend of mine turned his Aces into a bluff on the river and managed to fold out 2 villains who had a better hand. Everyone's effective stack: Around HKD1800-2000 so 180-200BB UTG: Qd-7d HJ: As-Ac CO: 8h-9c SB: 8c-9h Preflop Action: UTG opens for 30, HJ 3bets to 90, CO calls, SB calls and UTG calls (lollll). Pot: 365 Board: 10 spade -7 heart -7 spade Board Action: SB donks out for 100, UTG calls, HJ calls and CO calls. Pot: 765 Turn: 6 of spade. The dirtiest card in the deck? SB continues for 220, UTG calls, HJ calls. Now action is back on CO who thought about it for awhile but he ended up folding his straight... Pot: 1425 River: 9 of diamond. SB now checks, UTG also checks, HJ rips it all in for 1200, effectively turning his aces into a bluff. So pot is now 2625. SB is sick to the stomach and wants a count of the chips, but ended up folding. UTG thinks about it as well... but folds. Some questions: 1. Is turning Aces into a bluff on that river a good play? He had the Ace of spade, which blocks nut flush, which was a key consideration I think. Could also rep all the full-houses and even quad given SB and UTG checked the river to him 2. The CO player's fold on the turn surprised me a bit but I can also understand his reasoning of being scared of full-house and flushes (given how the action played out). Should CO player raise the turn instead? 3. SB's fold on the river is fine I think given he still had UTG player behind him and his straight loses to quite a few combos of flushes, full houses, and even quad. But would you call in his spot? 4. If you had UTG player's hand, should fold on the turn? If you want to see the hand live in action, feel free to check out my new poker vlog youtube channel (Episode 4).
