Just cuz we're not donkeys doesn't mean we don't get to bring home a suckout every now and then.

fuel, I looked at your hands below, hand 2 was a little reckless with a 3 spade board, don't ya think?

Hand 1 the guy was a pussy, hand 3, a moron. Glad to see them pay.

I'll add your overbet for value to my cash game and see what happens, I never slow play, but i've been getting killed with 1/2 pot and full pot bets, when the donkeys hit on the riv, so I'll try this.

Reckless is OK in 1/2 since your opponents are NOT geniuses. Sure yo'll get once in a while but it is still +EV over time.
