“He has like stubble on his face”... no, that would be the same as “he has similar too stubble on his face.” “He has stubble on his face.” See how simple that is?? I listened for 10 minutes and lost count after the 115th the word like was uttered out of context. I have no doubt that you have good strategy, but it’s unlistenable!

Here at Just Hands Poker we're all about the in-depth hand analysis. So in the past when we've had interesting guests on and had some nice conversation not directly about poker or the hand we're discussing, we've typically cut that from the episode. For this week we tried something new - instead of cutting my discussion about the shared love of board games Ryan and I have, we've released it as a separate episode, 36b. So if you want just the hand in the spirit of the show, listen to just 36a. But for those of you who are curious about which board games Ryan and I are passionate about, we've got a short 10 minute mini-episode for you. This is something we're considering doing for all future guest episodes so we'd love to hear your feedback on what you think! TLDL: Zach and Ryan really like board games - people should try playing the game diplomacy with a bunch of friends.

Location: Maryland Live!, Hanover Maryland

Stakes: 2/5

Time: Wednesday December 16th, 2:00 am

Hero (2100): Zach, younger male. Has been playing about 20 percent of hands. Playing very aggressively pre and postflop with kind of a crazy image due to being on a recent heater. Has shown a few semibluffs that have all got there by the river. A lot of people are adjusting by limp-calling instead of opening with most of their range.

Villain 1 (1300): Early 30s male. He's been playing about 35% of hands, opening around 15-20% of that range and limp calling the rest. Hero and villain have within the last orbit played two huge pots where hero stacked him for 700 and then I doubled his 600 rebuy up the very next hand.

Villain 2 (900): Early 30s male. Looks like a solid TAG and local grinder. Has not gotten out of line thus far, and has not taken a bunch of what look like profitable squeeze plays in the BB or straddle when limped to him.

9-handed table

V1 opens to 35 in MP+1, Hero flats on the button with Q9c, V2 calls in the straddle.

Flop (110) 10c7d3c

V2 check, V1 bet 50, Hero calls 50, V2 folds.

Turn (210) Ac

Stakes: 1/3

Time: Sunday Dec 13, 4:30 PM

Hero (600): Zach, younger male. Hero has been playing fairly tight aggressive thus far. Might look a bit over-aggressive to certain players but has rarely gotten to showdown and when he has, has been with strong value hands.

Villain 1 (300): Just sat down, first hand. In early 30s, reeks of marijuana.

Villain 2 (200): Also just sat down, first hand. In early 30s, reeks of marijuana.

Villain 3 (300): Very loose, super passive preflop. Capable of semibluffing and making big hero calls postflop. Has gone up and down a lot this session.

Villain 4 (120): 70s male. Very straightforward player, has never raised pre yet. The only hand he showed aggression postflop was where he flatted pocket aces and flopped a set.

8-handed table

V1 and V2 limp, Hero opens to 20 with AJs in MP+1. V3 calls in MP+2, V4 calls in SB, V1 calls, V2 calls.

Background:
Villain is a weirdo. He is white 30y/o, sat down in the 9 seat and immediately put two pine cones on the table in front of him. Proceeded to then take out a large leather bound notebook and start taking notes while studying each player at the table. Bought in for the 1k max.

His first BB I opened the button, it folded to him and he stared at me for over a full minute before folding. One player at the table said out loud, "What a weird speed date!"

About an hour after Villain sat down I open MP, he 3-bets in position and I call with AQhh. Flop all unders 1 heart, I check and he c-bets 1/3 pot, I call. Turn A, I check/call a large bet. River Q I check he checks back and I win.

One orbit later I open CO he 3-bets BB I fold he shows AA disgusted.

Hand in question takes place after about another hour at the table.

HAND (1.1k effective):
I open CO to $20 with TJdd, SB calls, V 3bet BB to 100, I call SB folds.

Flop (220) 9h9c4h. V checks, I bet 100, v calls.

Turn (420) 9h9c4h8c. V checks, I bet 250, v calls.

River (920) 9h9c4h8c7c. V checks, Hero?

I love the level of detail they go into. Best poker podcast I’ve come across.

DEAR GOD PLEASE STOP USING “LIKE” IMPROPERLY!!!!

By jmost99 - Jun 28 2018

“He has like stubble on his face”... no, that would be the same as “he has similar too stubble on his face.” “He has stubble on his face.” See how simple that is?? I listened for 10 minutes and lost count after the 115th the word like was uttered out of context. I have no doubt that you have good strategy, but it’s unlistenable!
