The Mookie "Strategy" Guide

I saw this strategy guide of Chad's as a comment on Hoy's blog.

I think you need to devise a whole new plan if you want to win a mookie. Here is my formula for you;

1. Any two face cards see EVERY flop, no matter the price!

2. If anyone goes all in and you have Ace face anything you must call. This includes CALLING the 4th re raise all in with Ace any Face!

3. ANY PAIR is all in, even calling! Even if you get like 44 UTG on the final table you must raise that powerful hand and CALL all re raises!

4. ANY FLUSH DRAW IS ALL IN, calling or betting it doesn't really matter which! When I say any, I mean ANY, like FUEL55 Any two soooooooted!
5. MAKE ANGRY ALL IN CALLS! If you raise and someone shoves on you and you aren't even getting a good price call with T7, 87, A6 it doesn't really matter, just CALL anyway. In closing you have to learn to CALL more. CALLING is the most powerful play in bloggaments!

bayne_s: so priced in

wwonka69: whatever

pushmonkey72: can't argue bayne

wwonka69: you called off your whole stack to 2 allins with AT

lightning36: GuessFT no longer thinks I an Astin

wwonka69: i am sure we will get a post detailing the skill full call though

Here it is though I must point out term is skillful.

I coolered donkette with AA against KK to take chip lead but then bled off chips making a 2k call against Mattazuma getting 2:1 and losing coinflip.
I then raised QQ in EP only to run into Bacon Bikini Mary's KK then jammed with AQ against JustSalems LP raise with monster K4 suited. A flush hit and I go home.

Congrats to wwonka69 on win.

In Omaha DS I went out early with top 2 pair and an oesd to a FCD with a pair of nines and 95 flush draw with 1 card to come, in fairness to FCD it is PL and he was guaranteed 2:1 on his money with his 5th flush draw.

Sometimes FT just makes me wanna cry ...

I must congratulate you on your ninth level thinking and your skillful river play. Obviously that's a tough call to make but in the long run it will make you money and that's what matters.

It should also be pointed out that "skill full" is a perfectly cromulent term if the board had made you a full house. Perhaps Wonka in his pain thought there was a 2nd ten on board.

That Bayne is fucking hysterical.

Sometimes you've just gotta ask yourself; "WWLD" and take it from there.....

Again, Bayne, sry bout that K4 soooted. Ugly way to go out for sure. I'm sure you'll have your revenge, tho, as I'll be playing more of these this year...;)

Wwonka said...

9th level thinking?

how you figure your A to be good is beyond me.

your raised my supposed steal attempt and got reraised and called before it got back to you. What more info did you need?

SOOOOOO ATo is good to call 2 all ins.

I am curious how Julius_Goat thinks that play will make you money in the long term.

Always good to talk them out.
Maybe I will learn something one of these days.
