  • how to play a monster when move to a new table??

    got a good question how would some of you play a monster hand, say at least pocket kk or aa when u just got move to a new table and a hand is dealt to you and don't know how these players on this table play, i found myself loosing a couple of crucial hands and rank pos. in the league with monster hands after i move to a new table.. do u stick with standard raising or do u go with the blind flow to get a feel of the table..got to learn a stragety on this scenario..tx

    when i have been on a table for some time i might try to slow play a monster depends on the table.when i am new to a table like you say i will 3/4x bb or raise or push.the more notes you have the less tables you will be on without knowing something about at least some of the players.

      that is too generic of a question to be answered properly.

      What position are you?
      What is your chip count?
      What are others chip counts?
      What are the blinds at?
      Are the blinds going up soon?
      Assuming PSO, how many more need to knocked out before you get positive points? (this one gets me often)
      Are you feeling lucky?

      Depending on the answers above, I could do something different.

        Most of the time they send me to a new table with cards like that, I end up losing the hand. I just toss them now & hope they come around again.

          I can't ever remember it happening. But if it did, if I wasn't familiar with the players on the table I think a shove may well get you a quick double up.

            I've always been worried by those type of hands, always seems to blow up if I push. In PSO, I might would have to fold them if playing them would cost me point position.. Go Heels!!! Class of 80 Have a good one!! Lasthippie

              though knowing a players style really helps a lot in most situations, defending your good hands is essential. generally id raise or reraise pre flop. i would certainly call a push, or push if calling takes a huge chunk of my stack. id raise on the turn. if im called id either reraise (at least 4x the raise) or fold. (folding only being an option if i have spent less than 1/3 of my stack on that hand so far.) id stay away from calling completely with high pairs (and getting outdrawn.) now this is assuming i havnt improved my hand on the flop, of course.

                It all depends on the blind level and the stacks around me. If there's a juicy pot, I tend to over-bet to try to isolate or possibly take it down. I assume there are people on the table that will think I'm bluffing, so I'm willing to take that risk with AA or KK...

                If it's PSO. Well... Who knows? Is tencat on my table? Can I bust PresBruno? Have to factor these things in.
