A Little Poker

I usually chat at the poker table. I chat about topics of interest, although almost never politics or poker; the former because of its complex and the latter because I have no reason to provide insight into opponents on my mind. 🙂 He finished last night may differ slightly.

Sitting just to the right of the aggressive, very loose player-I class him as hyper-aggressive, about the capacity-jargon that limited my options a lot. To top things, he was hitting everything. (No really, its cracked 85o AA in the contest, and that kind of thing was going to pay a lot _.) Up, making a little money slowly over time, and after about 2 hours my randomizer came 100, which is the number with “make some crazy Ivan St? NT unless you have some reason not to “. I am blind with small A7 off. 3 people limp in, and could stand a healthy raise, except I am pretty sure I have a better plan, and limp as well. Sure enough, the Loosey-goosey Mr. rises to 7 (too small to get anyone out, but its aim was to take control of the hand play), callers will be 3, and now reraise to 60-min and I believe in doing the work. One of the players in the hand, bless his heart, exclaims “Finally, you are not going to stand for this nonsense is more”. Well, perhaps he did not use the word “nonsense”-its all a bit hazy.

The Big Blind believe long enough to hide the fact that his catch, and willingness, and so is everyone else, and scoops up the pot. The player loose in chimes with typical “nice bet”, I was saying that I had to do something-playing behind it is cramping my style. It draws attention to a vacant seat left him, and come back with “that contractors would not be right”.

That comment changed the whole night. It probably decide was a danger, and he folded a lot whenever I was in hand. We started talking about poker situations a lot. It was fun. I learned a lot about how at least one example of the style of the player think.
