Still Some Donkish Play Out There.

I am finally starting to get back to playing some online poker. I played for about 30 minutes today at lunch, and won about $200. Though it is harder to find good tables, if you are willing to be selective there are still some donks to be found. Below are some hands from today (finally some fresh poker content, yeah!)

I think I played this one pretty good.

Full Tilt Poker Game #1898603898: Table Arlington Bridge - $1/$2 - No Limit Hold'em - 15:34:10 ET - 2007/03/01
Seat 1: GoldPeon ($161.45)

One of the reasons I like playing with shorties is that you can take away their odds of hitting a concealed hand like a set or 2-pair preflop. This is just about impossible to do against a full stack, as you would not want to raise what it would take with a hand like AA. You do want to get called preflop when you have AA. I am hoping to isolate the shorty, and lose the bigstack. If the bigstack calls I will have to play more careful post flop. If I can isolate the shorty, I will be putting it all in post flop on this hand.

aciddeathlizard calls $8

*** FLOP *** [7h 3c 3h]

Plan worked, and that is a great flop for me. I would like to get this guy pot committed so I make a weakish bet, that I hope will be called.

Blinders bets $17
aciddeathlizard calls $17
*** TURN *** [7h 3c 3h] [6c]

Now is the time to push. The board has two flush draws and a possible straight. I am going to shove, and hope this guy has an overpair. I push all-in, because it looks weaker than betting the other guys remaining stack.

Blinders bets $188.75, and is all in
aciddeathlizard calls $66.90, and is all in
Blinders shows [Ad Ac]
aciddeathlizard shows [9s 9c]

My boy calls here with 2 outs on the river. Not sure how he thinks he is good here. My bets should be telling him a pair of 9s is no goot.

Uncalled bet of $121.85 returned to Blinders
*** RIVER *** [7h 3c 3h 6c] [Th]
Blinders shows two pair, Aces and Threes
aciddeathlizard shows two pair, Nines and Threes
Blinders wins the pot ($194.80) with two pair, Aces and Threes

Next victim???

*** FLOP *** [4s 5d Js]
smalltime84 checks
Blinders bets $11

I have an over, runner runner nut flush potential, and I raised preflop. Have to c-bet here.

smalltime84 calls $11

Not sure what he is calling with here. If he had a Jack he should have reraised.

*** TURN *** [4s 5d Js] [2s]
smalltime84 bets $12

Floating me and now representing the flush? I have a redraw to the nutz and he did not bet enough, plus I have a gutshot and over. I call.

Blinders calls $12
*** RIVER *** [4s 5d Js 2s] [Ah]
smalltime84 bets $16

Can't put him on two overs (an Ace) here, and it looked to much like he was floating me. I have to look him up with my pair of Aces.

Blinders calls $16
*** SHOW DOWN ***
smalltime84 shows [Qc Kd] (Ace King high)
Blinders shows [9d As] (a pair of Aces)
Blinders wins the pot ($91) with a pair of Aces

Stupid donk is floating me with overs and no draw to the flush (4 0uts), lol.

The hand below is from a couple days ago.

*** FLOP *** [Qh Kc Ah]

jdrocks1967 bets $12

Pretty scary flop, but I caught a huge piece here. I want to get as much in now as possible. I am dead to JT, but have a redraw to the boat just in case.

Blinders raises to $30
Tan Pham folds
jdrocks1967 has 15 seconds left to act
jdrocks1967 raises to $62, and is all in

I have to call that!

Stupid donk, nice play sir.

Nice to see the donks getting what they deserve. At least they didn't suck out on you like they did on me last night.
