69:41 Outro with Mix #2 by Greg the Ace
- Dear Sean,
- Just started playing poker seriously about 2 months ago and have definitely got the bug bad. Found your little pod cast while searching for poker blogs. Iím also a bit of a political junky, so poker blogs seemed like a good bet to pick up some insight into the ins and outs of the game (I prefer Limit / NL Texas HoldíEm) live and on the net. Love your show and the kind of ďinside baseballĒ stuff you get from the poker professor and others. I canít wait for your WSOP coverage with the guy writing the Tao of Poker blog. Anyway coming to the point of my e-mail I was hoping perhaps you guys could break down my play on a bad beat I took playing 0.25/0.50 NL Texas HoldíEm on FTP. Unfortunately, I didnít get a hand history (Iím working on that taking your advice to use Poker Tracker and the guide you recommended) but have it seared into my memory due to the ~$20.00 I lost on the pot. Anyway here goes.
- I was in the BB and was dealt 10c8h. A few players called to the SB who also called so the pot was at about $2. I checked, and we got the following flop
- 5h 7s 8c
- I flopped top pair (but a low pair) and bet the pot in hopes of taking it down early. It worked to some extent as everyone folded except the SB. The turn came 6d and I felt a little more confident in my pair of 8s, there wasnít a flush draw, and had the gut shot straight draw so I only bet $3 in hopes of extracting some cash. The SB calls my $3 bet. The river came 9c, so the board is a 9 high straight (5h 7s 8c 6d 9c). At this point the SB checks to me and I think Iím cool with my 10 high straight (I put him on 2 over cards AJ, AQ, AK, etc that had missed) and bet out $5 and he raised me all in at this point. At this point I thought that he thought we both had missed and he was hoping to scare me out (best case) or split the pot with me with the boardís straight (worst case). Needless to say I called his ~$11.50 all in bet and he turns up Jc 10s beating my 10 high straight. Iím thinking I should have bet more aggressively after the flop and turn in hopes of chasing him away from his gut shot draw, but I didnít feel all that great with just a pair of 8s and what turned out to be a lower gut shot draw. Please feel free to opine at length on you next show using me as an example of what not to do. If you donít think the hand will work on the show any e-mail critique would be greatly appreciated.
- Thanks in advance,
