Cash game hijinks. Pocket Jacks versus 8-6 suited. Doug Polk titled his video -- "The Most Insane Call in the History of Poker." That's a slight exaggeration, but Alec Torelli made a sick hero call on the river against Polk during a taping of a $25/$50 cash game from Live at the Bike at the Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles.

Hi all,

Let's try to make some life over this thread.

I would like to start with a topic where I have a major issue : "Raise shove" river :o)

Let me know if this spot is good or not for you. At the river, I have clearly the feeling that Vilain is showing a lot of weaknesses and I represet clearly the colour. With what range can I be called?

 

I have not many hands on CO (Vilain). Nothing out of line neither from him.

One point I didn't consider. I might look aggressive (I looked my tracker the replayer).

Winamax - €0.20 NL (5 max) - Holdem - 4 players
 

Hero (BTN): 109 BB
SB: 76.2 BB (VPIP: 28.11, PFR: 15.68, 3Bet Preflop: 3.08, Hands: 197)
BB: 100 BB (VPIP: 34.48, PFR: 12.64, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 87)
CO: 83.1 BB (VPIP: 25.00, PFR: 25.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 19)

SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has ;Kh;Qd

CO raises to 3 BB, Hero calls 3 BB, fold, BB calls 2 BB

Flop: (9.5 BB, 3 players)    ;3s;3c;Tc
BB checks, CO bets 5 BB, Hero calls 5 BB, fold

Turn: (19.5 BB, 2 players)  ;Ah
CO checks, Hero bets 10.5 BB, CO calls 10.5 BB

River: (40.5 BB, 2 players)  ;8s
CO bets 17.5 BB, Hero raise all-in?????

 

is it worth to shove? what can call me here?

on the river I see him

     - missed draw - rare

     - pair (A or T) - often (should fold?)

     - nuts under-played (rare)

 

 

Thanks all,

Hello, 

 

I am specialized in tournament and would like to know and/or share the way you do, to improve in your own poker tournaments game. 

I did love to read books:

-harrington's trilogy

-phil gordon's trilogy

-kill phil's trilogy

And many others books not directly linked to tournanents but good for the poker overall. I love to read book as they save time and practice for me. They resume some behavior and line to have, that you would learn in the field (losing) otherwise.  I also read on forums and talk to people. Right now i feel i do not need to read more book, as they end quite the same for me. I have a bit of over-information and feel i cannot ingurgitate more of that, but apply it. So i need to do something else. 

I think a lot by myself and review mentally each of my live MTTs, and also review some of my online  mtts with my tracker. 

 

What do you do?

What did make you improve the most?
