That's some delicious cake there Royal! Checked out the blog, looks great so far. Rough AK hand over there. I think you put it all in at these levels, but that's just what I've overheard from the other Cakers.
Mmmm...baaaaaaacon caaaake.Congrats on diving in Royal! I'm *almost* ready!
Thanks guys. So, really, I shoulda gotten it all in there on the flop after they check-raised me?Seriously, I’d really like to know.
Nope. By the flop was too late and no one is going to abandon two pair at these stakes. But what should have happened was a big raise pre-flop. Called. Check to you, bet, (check-raise), you re-pop, he shoves, and you make a crying call figuring you're behind and have maybe 6.5 outs best case or might have to go runner runner to win.
Yeah, that makes sense. I still have a lot of time before I can gauge what’s an appropriate pre-flop bet here. Min-raise is definitely not the right option.
Congrats on taking the challenge.For the record, when I was playing NL Hold'em on cake I always hit pot whenever I choose to raise with any hand unless I was in early position then I may min raise with marginal holdings like pocket 4's or QJ suited. I think Marsh does the same thing. If I reraised I would just hit pot as well. This takes all the guesswork out for you and makes it difficult for the villain's to put you on a hand.Good luck to you at the tables Royal.
For the record, when I was at the lowest levels, I did use the pot bet button basically all the time, but now that I am up a bit higher, I don't use it exclusively. I tend to bet 3/4 of the pot pretty often instead of the full pot. I will also bet 1/2 pot sometimes. The bet pot button is nice for us lazy folks, but in the end it is not the correct bet size on many occasions.
