Yes exactly , we cannot definietely say that for example pocket aces or KQ should be played this or that way, it all depends on current situation and your thoughts and it's all to your decision. The decision you make is final, for example if all players are tight you can expect them not to call you, while playing against bluffer will cause you to do some tactics to let him bluff etc etc. it's that complicated and even more lol , that's why when posting hands it should be mentioned how other players acted on the table

POKER takes a few mins to learn but a lifetime to master!
I will read your mind and the frightening thing for you is you won't even know it! ;)

what would you guys do here it's very early days only 2nd level in blinds so we do not want to bust yet you have 990 in chips you are raised to 120 you hold 1010 you re-raise to 240 to try and isolate the raiser(in the hope of a set or a good board) the sb calls the original raiser calls the flop comes 769 amazing board for 1010! sb bets 750 nearly her whole stack insta and original raiser insta calls now your turn what is the verdict here ;) lets see if you did the same thing as me ;)!

I'm thinking they've either hit a set or that straight.  I would be tempted to call because you could well be in the lead so without any further info on the playing style of SB, I'd call.

Ok nobody else has weighed in so I will tell you the outcome now ;)! So as it was very early days and the bet and call was so quick on a dangerous board I mulled over it and thought perhaps it was QQ and KK I was up against here either that or one had made the nuts or a set. I folded 1010 and boom the original raiser had a set of sevens!! turn card 3 brick for me river Q another brick ;) the girl who bet him on the flop had 88. This has to be without a doubt one of my best ever folds! I was bang on about being behind!

Good guess on them hitting a set, bad decision to call (my guess).

Good fold bigdk.  Don't you just love it when you do the right thing!

Damn right! If that was at high stakes and televised it would be deemed legendary!

Had a tough decision to make after shorty went allin and big stack re-razed. I folded and this came up. Have not played deep tournie that much past few years and lost my edge when in this situation because I play so many sit n go's now.
It would be nice to hear comments from LCB poker players on what they would do.

He was playing his "all-in" for 10 bb max as player with ~20bb just called so probably he wouldn't go all in with his hand. if you take into account how many dead money was there already then it's worth raising 99+ AJ+, looks like you don't use tracker so I don't know how tight they were.
With this range (tight enough imo):

U are right about not using a tracker, and it is a great tool.Only problem is any time I have something it goes on slots.
Was going to call shorty, but re-raze shook me a bit.
Thanks for the table Sommi   ;)

I probably would have gone for it as it "looks" like he is blind stealing although he had a decent hand.
