sat plays

Today there is nothing early I can see.

The split between early and late plays is about 50-50 and I would expect that to continue through the rest of the season. These late plays are FREE. Just send me your email address and I will add you to the group receiving late plays.

Poker Comments:

check or bet

Before Puggy Pearson passed away last year I had played quite a bit with him and got to know him. Although I had played with him a few times 20 to 30 years ago in his later years he only played mid limits and was way past his prime.

Its always interesting to play with the old timers that have been around hustling poker not only are they colorful and unique but they also come up with some good informative comments.

One comment that he made to me that stuck with me and I have used quite often is….”its more dangerous to check then to bet”

He told me this a number of times but after thinking about it his advice holds a lot of truth to it. First if your head up a bet might win the pot…but more importantly when your playing split pot games and are 3 handed its much easier to make a decision later on if you bet and get a raise reraise..then check and then get a bet and a raise to you.

It seems its almost always a good idea to bet into two other people in split pot games with a fair hand then to check especially against strong aggressive players. Or players that overuse the raise with a bad hand to get people out of the pot.

One other comment about Puggy…a number of times when I sat next to him he would show me his hand. I can remember a number of times he would say when he played the first pot….”you always have to play the first hand to see how your running” He would say this to the people in the pot…then he would show me his hand….AA…! He was quite the character.

On the upper right hand corner of my blog I have a link to all previous posts of poker comments
