That's a pretty broad question. What is your poker back ground? How much O8 have you played? What levels and forms?

Does anybody visit this forum anymore lol

It seems inevitable that once computers become advanced enough online poker will be in trouble. I guess the question is how serious and whether sites will be advanced enough to keep them at bay. Or if the bots will be unexploitable as far as being distinguished from a human. What if the sites make you give permission to monitor your system while playing on their site? Could that be a thing? I have no idea how current bots function. I just know they exist.

Then there's live play. Once technology reaches the point that we can install it in our bodies the level playing field will be at risk unless casinos implement measures to detect/disable these devices.

Shit's getting trippy. It will be interesting for sure!

I'm way out of the loop on this. Can anyone enlighten me on the situation?

I'll get it on Fulltilt right away!

Good thing they are smart and have grown their live events.

Can you talk more about your pot lead @ 12:50 with QJT9 on T 7s 3s flop.  3h aren't there a lot of hands that can have us in terrible shape on that flop given there is a flush draw?  Does the fact that our hand dominates a lot of straight draws make up for this?

Hand:  http://wt.ag/1vgH6ok

Just busted this tourney. The chip leader was ok and pretty active as people were playing very tight.

Here are my notes on him:

opened for pot on button w aces

min bet turn and river with weakish hand opp


I debated just flatting seeing a flop and making a decision or repotting for value, as he was chip leader.

I
think we are ahead of his range here. Whats your line preflop at this
point in a tourney with these stack sizes? Play it safe and live to
flop another day

Tighten up your opening range slightly and 4b wider, usually much wider against this type of guy. Balance your post flop calling and raising ranges by playing some strong hands passively and check raising wider on flops and turns.  Find the best way to punish him when you have hands that are sure to win at least half the pot (nut low, nut high,  good high with good low, etc.)  Stay away from calling pre, calling flop mediocre and folding turn or river.  Playing passively with mediocre hands is burning money against this guy.

I think we should bet/fold the turn. when he check raises it is usually QJ+ which crushes us. we are ahead of a lot of his calling range (worse queens with a draw, J+ draw, any pair + draw).

May 18, 2014 | 11:13 p.m.

If he's a good player he should expect to get called a lot on the river, given his line, so I would lead vs someone like that. You might consider leading the turn, since we block a lot of aces and jacks combos (sets). The seven is an obvious blank, doesn't change much and therefor I would expect him to check behind often.  I think a lot of his range is made up of Mediocre draws. non nut flush draw with middle pair or gutter type stuff.

May 18, 2014 | 11:05 p.m.

at about 18:12 on the left table.


how are you adjusting your calling range there given that he 3b shoved with a 6 high FD?

Comment | bingerminn commented on O8 worth learning?

super action at wsop

May 21, 2013 | 10:46 p.m.

are we talking limit 08 or PL/NL?  I could drop some knowledge on the latter.....

May 21, 2013 | 10:34 p.m.

Lofigr is pretty spot on.  obviously depends on your opponents ranges.  If you are the only one with A2 multiway it can be pretty powerful. 

May 21, 2013 | 10:32 p.m.

You are really really good at making videos and explaining everything very clearly. really like your style.

moar plz

Just wanted to say the essential plan is awesome.

I cant afford the full plan cause the gov took all my $. I was browsing the site and sad I couldn't watch some fresh videos. then i discovered the $10 plan. incredible deal and super awesome for someone in my position that can't really make money atm playing.

well done.

what if you allowed members to download x number of videos for every month they are a member. that way you could download say one movie a month for random traveling purposes.

March 20, 2013 | 2:28 a.m.

wow I didn't realize it doesn't show your hand??!!

I had A234.

Also it doesn't show preflop action.

HJ: UCntBluffMe: $23.55
CO: aces640: $93.55
BN: bingerminn: $205.76
SB: chivinh: $12.54
BB: Thuck: $51.82
UTG: MasterQQ: $126.32
Preflop MasterQQ opens UTG, Aces flats as do I on the button.
Flop ($12.00) 7 4 8 (3 Players)
MasterQQ bets $12, aces640 folds, bingerminn calls $12
Flop is pretty standard. We can't fold here w/ uncounterfitable (is this a word? how do you spell it?) low and a pair.
Turn ($36.00) J (2 Players)
MasterQQ checks, bingerminn bets $22, MasterQQ calls $22
This turn isn't horrible, but we don't like it. If he bets and we know things about him we could definitely consider folding at this point. You have to have a pretty good read, but if he is playing say 18/9 we can be fairly certain when he bets the turn that he has an A2 in his hand and most likely something with it.

Once he checks we obviously have two options. Check and keep the pot small to avoid a gross c/r and/or getting quartered for more than we would like to. Or we can bet, take control of the hand and possibly gain a ton of value by getting him to fold now or by the river, or in some cases he calls down and we quarter him.

I opt to bet since it's 5 handed and I think there a lot of hands in his range that he just can't continue with. Hands that we would chop with.
River ($80.00) K (2 Players)
MasterQQ checks, bingerminn bets $80
I'll stop talking now.

I'm interested what people think about the river here.

Comment | bingerminn commented on O8 button play
are they?? I would say the top percent of hands w/o two wheel cards in them would replce the bottom percent of the hands with two wheel cards in them. for example I would rather open an A6KQ type hand than a 45KT type hand. I definetly fold some hands with two wheel cards in them.

I think this is more of a poker theory question then it is a game specific/hand range question.

Did you open 2 out of the last 50 hands on the button and get folds both times. then open super wide.

is the BB defending and 3b'ingi a super high percentage. then obviously tighten up your button range and/or open and continue wider on flops.

I don't know exact numbers, but this is how I determine the hands I'm opening in most situations.

Comment | bingerminn commented on PLO8 HEM/PT3
Been using HEM for 08 for years. Works great.

Jan. 12, 2013 | 1:10 a.m.

possibly.....sometimes being OOP is helpful to be the first to shove/bet pot.

ugh....i just made like an hour long video with really interesting spots and discussion and it craps out at like the 20 min mark........I'll try again this weekend.

Comment | bingerminn commented on O8 button play
I'd say this is almost true, but there are hands without wheel cards in them that are profitable to open on the button. Mainly high pairs and high connected hands.

Jan. 11, 2013 | 11:18 p.m.

The standard answer you hear a lot is that it is a mistake to play one way hands. This holds true for limit, but is no where near true for PLO8/NLO8.

There are many times when you are going for just the low, while planning on putting pressure on your opponent once you make it, in such a way that it is difficult for them to call with mediocre two way hands, or strong high hands with no low.

An example would be: HU pot in position. You call the flop cbet with bare low draw. Turn completes the low and you call again. River completes the flush draw. You shove/bet big/raise big.

Massive amounts of equity are gained in this game by putting pressure on your opponents in the right spots. Many times just being the first to bet/shove will gain you tons of value.

Hand reading is vital to making these types of plays, due to the possibility of getting quartered.
