I don't understand the 50 (fiddy) in the pot.  Did the blinds get raked?

What is the purpose of the PF raise, i.e. would there be any hands that you would limp with?  Do you think that your opponent will fold hands that have appropriate equity?  Raising for information v. pot control?

Having chosen to play a somewhat vulnerable hand OOP, and having received a relatively passive response, and a relatively good flop, why not continue with what is probably still a vulnerable hand?

My only other thoughts about the 1st 2 streets is why not jam it a little more here, with this hand, to make him pay to draw, which is what normally occurs here?  Granted, your hand will not be well concealed, but does that hurt you much on these occasions?

On the turn, you're a serious dog against a made str8 (or an overset), but you've got everything else crushed.  I.e. complete polarization, and you can't fold, so call.  Again, you're turning your hand face up to some extent, but you can't fold.  And if you are the better player, you want to go to the next street, to play for a decent pot.

As played, I think a turn shove is better than a turn call.  I doubt it ever works as a bluff, but if you're committed to calling it off, it does increase your EV somewhat, IMO.

I don't play but I was at a table with someone who does.  He said the games in NV are populated mostly by good players multi-tabling.  He also said there's a lot more action in NJ, and more bad players (like maybe 5x).

I just read yesterday that Lindsay Graham will introduce legislation banning it in the USA.  I guess that's OK because I couldn't possibly hate him any more.  It's like "GW vs. Lindsay, who do I hate most?"  You know what?  It doesn't matter.

What happened here was you called off your stack drawing pretty thin.  The only way I know of to avoid that is playing differently early.

I get reminded of something Schoonmaker wrote, something like "Poker requires us to do things we don't WANT to do."  How can a player lay this down?  If the bets tell you that you're beat, you're usually beat.  Regs don't barrel like this consistently when they don't have AQ beat.  So it's just a matter of taking the pot odds.  In this case, they weren't really that great.

I think, at 6 max, you probably need to play AQ like it's the nuts and 3 bet, and where you go from there depends on the stacks.  I think that will keep you away from most of these situations where you call it off crying.

just unlucky.  i mean the only thing you could think about him having here that you would fold is AK, but he just raised PF it wasn't a 3 bet or anything else, just a raise he could def have worse aces or a bluff etc.  You're getting stacked here every time.

Not in either state but play a couple limited sites.  I saw where Ohio's Senator was about to sign more legislation against on line Poker.  They do not understand its like Weed, its gonna be here so just control it, tax it and make some money for the govt to spend
