Well they're not landmark works in terms of the way that HoH influenced live tourneys. I think thats what Hitch-hiker meant. They do look good though!

So, I'm gonna do a spot of bonus whoring. Was thinking about giving rush poker a try since FT's signup bonus is decent, and it would be a good change of pace. What have people found to be a good strategy?

Surely you should approach rush poker like any 6 max cash games with limited info, the only difference is you get more hands in but that shouldn't mean you play them any different. I'd imagine you get away with alot more, though, so I'd probably be 3 betting a tonne especially in position.

Yeah I just played half an hour there. I enjoyed:

Opening from the button and SB with any two cards.
3betting button opens from BB with shit.
3betting really wide on the button.
Hardly ever seeing a flop, just ticking over steadily stealing and restealing.

Really quick one...

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00 BB (6 handed) - Party-Poker Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

Hero (UTG) ($105.87)
MP ($171.40)
Button ($19.70)
CO ($114.40)
BB ($100)
SB ($120.42)

Preflop: Hero is UTG with 10, A
Hero bets $3, 1 fold, CO calls $3, 3 folds

Flop: ($7.50) 2, 5, 5 (2 players)
Hero bets $5, CO calls $5

Turn: ($17.50) A (2 players)
Hero bets $12, CO calls $12

River: ($41.50) K (2 players)
Hero checks, CO bets $26, Hero ???

Is villain turning enough marginal made hands into bluffs here to call this? Hard to see him with any straight bluffs, but we're getting a decent price and there's not a lot he could have here, but he has a load of marginal made hands he may decide to fire here and we don't have to be good all that often? He's a pretty standard reg, not much history of note.

The Gus Hansen book was entertaining but from a strategy point of view I don't think it was great, definitely some stuff I'd disagree with in it

The last two I haven't heard of, look pretty interesting though

No reads, both guys are laggy though playing around 30/20
Hey think you should post this in its own thread. I'd be interested in hearing other peoples' views. I can't see myself folding there though.

Hmm, I did fold btw. Didnt really think it was worth a thread and seeing as noone in here answered maybe I was right

At the time I felt I had about 20% equity against a range of made straights and some turned combo straight draws. If I was to add in someone with a set then I was drawing to 1 out so I mucked. Also in these spots when there are 2 people allin you get to know if you were right or not!! so I don't mind folding as much!!!

I'd rather just bet small on the river and fold to a raise, and I would fold now.

Spew. Fold the turn. Really looks like he owned you real hard.

I wouldn't 3bet this hand and I'd cbet the flop too.

Hey Danny -

The book has multiple authors, SS style. The other authors' contributions are pretty uneven; David William's short essay being the cream of the first part. But DN's section, which takes up the last third, is worth the book price on it's own. Even if you don't employ the complete small ball strategy he propounds, I guarantee you will start seeing spots to use specific small ball tactics described.

i 3bet the hand because villian was opening so many pots and was folding to 80% of 3bets and i have a blocker to the a and im suited and in postion. You prefer flatting here?
Why do you bet the flop? i cant think of too many hands that call that we have beat.

Flatting is fine here, I think.
