RIP Fardin Qayyumi (AKA "cricket player"; "Bob"), 1/11/1990 - 15/4/2006
If I believed in God, it would be Ivey.
Daniel Negreanu will win the WSOP Main Event one of these years.
Rip Fardin Qayyumi, Bob Woolmer and Craig.
Made a full tilt account. On the first few days I was playing (to be quite honest) awfully. Today, I managed to regain some form. During a sit-and go, there was a player on my table who kept on going all-in with anything of K-8, to 4-2. I had AK, so I called her all-in. She had K8 offsuit. She then rivers a flush, I'm as sick as anything now, by losing against a complete and utter fish.
In a nine/ten man game, A-3 is a fold unless you are defending your blinds, or in the button trying to steal blinds, or you are getting some really juicy pot odds (e.g, you have antes and an unraised pot is big already).

Fun hand from earlier. He really should be folding the flop despite how aggro our "relationship" is...
poker is easy
I don't understand the reraise to all in on the flop. I don't think most people would be that aggressive with top pair only, which is the only 'big' he has beat, or a flush draw. He didn't have any club. Calling the $222 raise would be smarter, and then check-calling is better. It looks like a cash game so any money you can save by getting down with a pair would be smart. This is a six man table, so you do have to be more aggressive but I don't like that play.
Since IPreferFox was BB, he could have even hit two pair, if his intentions were just to defend his blinds with that call (though a 9-5 holding is very unlikely obviously).

Maybe its better in retrospect, but I am not sure if I'd play the hand like that unless it was a set over set or something, which is very hard to get away from (I don't think I am good enough to let it go that flop).
