The WSOP 2015 Main event final table clash is getting closer! World Series of Poker 2015 Main Event Warm Up [cash game poker 2015 – november nine 2015]: Detailed explanation: http://www.alectorelli.com/aa-cracked-by-joe-mckeehen-wsop-2015-main-event-chip-leader/
I had a blast playing on Poker Night in America in Turning Stone, surrounded by several pro poker players that are facing World Series of Poker 2015 Main Event [November nine 2015].
Joe McKeehen* was playing some incredibly solid poker; the annoying good mixture of tight yet aggressive.
We played a few small pots leading up to this, but mostly staying out of each others way.
That all changed when I was dealt two black aces under the gun, made a raise and was called by him on the button.
After betting twice on a 9h 6h 5d 5c, the painfully brutal 3h fell on the river.
This was the key point in the hand. It’s easy to lose control here, let out a sigh of frustration and mindlessly check, conceding the hand.
Checking would mean I’d be forced to check/fold; allowing him to get to showdown cheaply, and potentially missing value whenever I do have the best hand.
A much more prudent thought process should be: what percentage of the time is my hand good, and what is the best line to take to maximize my chances of putting money in the pot with the best hand?
To do that one my tally up the hands they beat and weigh that vs. the hands that beat them. As I tell my clients, with practice you’ll get a good approximation in real time.
Even though one can’t be 100% certain, intuitively it felt like betting was the right play. Not only does it make me harder to play against, but my range is protected because it could also include nutted hands, therefore I don’t have to worry about getting bluff raised too often.
So, I went ahead and fired a third bullet!
