    Bitcoin Promo Code Hand of the Week
    On Friday, May 5th, bitcoinpromocode.com sponsored the Cinco de Mayo 15 chip No-Limit Hold-em freeroll here at Betcoin. The following hand, and the history behind it, came up at the final table:

    HEADS UP FOR THE TITLE

    With the elimination of michigan1 in third place, our heads up battle between nsisi and twirlspin began. The blinds were 1200/2400 and nsisi had 90k chips, while twirlspin had 25k. Twirlspin steadily closed that gap by taking 6 out of the first 7 hands, without a single showdown.

    A FLOP CHECK/SHOVE, WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

    With the blinds at 1500/3000, nsisi (72k) completed in the small blind, and twirlspin (42k) checked. The flop fell Kc 4c 3d and twirlspin checked. Nsisi fired out 3k and twirlspin raised all in. What types of hands do you think twirlspin is making this move with? What hands would you make this move with if you were twirlspin? What hands would you call with as nsisi? Does it matter that if you lose you aren’t out? Does it matter that you lost 6 out of the last 7 pots? The person with the best analysis will receive a 250 Thank You Ticket courtesy of Bitcoin Promo Code and Betcoin. Thank you.

    RESPOND BY SATURDAY, MAY 13th AT NOON EST
    We will post the winner of the 250 Thank You Ticket this Saturday, May 13th, at 12PM EST, along with the results of the hand.

    Blindme: What types of hands do you
    Fri, 05/12/2017 - 16:51

    What types of hands do you think twirlspin is making this move with?

    I think he could make this move with any hand,even air if he has a good enough read on the opponent. Headsup is a real aggressive beast and the weak bet is either the nuts or nothing and he would have a pretty good grasp of his opponents range by this point.
    He could have a flush draw or a weak king but I would guess more towards having a weak ace type hand in this spot.

    What hands would you make this move with if you were twirlspin?

    I am actually really aggressive in blind vs. blind and headsup but its just a preference.
    Find some people sit back to much waiting for that knockout hand they can slowplay well I eat their chips not realizing how critical that mistake is. If they get aggressive back it tends to be weaker hands like say ATos vs. A2os or KJos.

    Does it matter that you lost 6 out of the last 7 pots?

    I think it matters a bit,would think that it tilted the opponent a little and would be more likley to call off with a weaker hand. As for twirlspins perspective,I think aggression at this point always forces the opponent to make mistakes and therefore feel it is the right play always.

    Hand range is not as important for me as the history of the play. Lot of players will play different at a final table or once in the cash looking at who is most likely to get knocked out next or forced to go allin. Often they bleed out and the aggressive player ends up with a big stack. If the opponent has been sitting back 3 way waiting for another player to bust I believe it easier to lay into them,knowing they will most likely not adjust for at least 5 hands.

    Underworld: Interesting hand.

    Twirlspin won 6 hands without showdown, and he is making a move with two pairs probably, cause there is no reason to go all in to see one more club for flush when he can pay 3k and in same time to make a trap for Nsisi. He also checked before flop so he didn`t think that his cards are strong, and on flop Nsisi fired out 3k and Twirlspin raised all in, he have K 3 or 4 3 and he is making Nsisi to to fold or to pay that one pair, here is important also what Nisisi had and this 3k was some King with who knows what or maybe even two clubs, here we come on question "What hands would you call with as nsisi". I don`t know how Twirlspin play, but in this hand I doubt that he had king and ace ( he would rise before flop probably ), my guessing is two pairs, maybe three of a kind even.

    Nsisi : If i lost 6 out of 7 and I have 30k more I would definitely call if I`m waiting one card for flush or two pairs k and 4 or 3 I don`t know about king and ace, but after so many lost hands maybe I would try with that too. for me here is important that I lost so many hands before.
    Twirlspin: Like I think about his cards, I would try that all in with three of a kind, or two pairs.

    What types of hands do you think twirlspin is making this move with?
    Hard to say without knowing more history, but he has to have at least a strong draw. Since he won 6 out of the last 7 he might play like this with strong hands as well, like 2 pairs, because the opponent might think that he's making a move with draw or air. I don't think that he would do this with just a naked draw. I think he has to have at least a pair and a flush draw or 5c 6c type of hand. Very unlikely, but there is a possibilty that he slow played AA or KJ+ type of hand preflop and check raised on flop.

    What hands would you make this move with if you were twirlspin?
    I would only do this with a strong draw, 4 3, set or AA. Since I have won 6 out of my last 7 hands without showdown I would expect the oppent call with wider hand range than usual, so I don't want to bluff with air or weak draw.

    Does it matter that if you lose you aren’t out?
    It might matter to some, but not to me. I only think about what is the best move in this particular spot.

    What hands would you call with as nsisi?
    It's hard to say without knowing more information about the past hands. I don't think that the opponent is bluffing with completely nothing in this spot or doing this with weak pair. I'm putting him on at least a straight draw, but most likely a stronger draw. I think since this is draw heavy board and the opponent has been playing agressive in the past hands then I have to call with K 7 or better or a strong draw.

    Does it matter that if you lose you aren’t out?
    It might matter to some, but not to me. I only think about what is the best move in that particular spot.

    Does it matter that you lost 6 out of the last 7 pots?
    No, not really. What matters is how I lost these pots. Was opponent being very agressive and I was forced to fold weak hands? Was I being passive and did not fight for pots? Or maybe I played right and was just unlucky with the hands.

    If I'm twirlspin I'm likely to have a great draw hand or even made hand I've won the last 6 hands without a showdown so I'm not shortstacked as previous hands. What's the rush unless I have a beast open ended straight draw, hoping for clubs or even triple kings. If I'm NSIS easy fold unless I have a nut flush draw or any mentioned hands above. If not holding any of these cards NSIS MUCK IT!! And of course it matters win or lose. If you don't mind losing you're a loser.

    Nsisi called twirlspin's all-in. Twirlspin held K7 offsuit, no clubs for top pair, and nsisi A3 offsuit no clubs for bottom pair. A five hit the turn, bringing nsisi a backdoor straight draw, but twirlspin was still out in front with a pair of kings. The river three gave nsisi trip threes and a victory. Congratulations nsisi!

    Thank you ZZZZZ for the ticket.

    Was really curious to see how this hand turned out for twirlspin and what he ended up having.
    Have found him to be a very good player in the few tourneys we have played together.
