IMO its important to identify spots when you can try "stupid" stuff like this.

TitoOrtiz,

In my opinion, you can open with almost any two cards when the stacks are deep enough. But you have to remember that you aren't playing AQ or KQ, and you can't fall in love with top pair if you hit it.

If I'm reraised by someone on the button, I'll have to assess the likelihood of him trying to steal. If in reraises by someone in the blinds, unless he's a maniac, I'll probably fold.

It's only stupid if you play it like AK or AQ.

PR - IMO its important to identify spots when you can try "stupid" stuff like this.


Meaning you don't make this play under 20 bbs. But surely you don't see a problem with raising from there when stacks are fairly deep, right?

Or was my postflop play "stupid"?

TitoOrtiz5 - First thing I thought of was how stupid it is to raise KQ offsuit from middle position with blinds at 30/60. Looking for trouble.


No, it's fine.

Blah, I dunno what I was thinking last night when I posted about this hand... I thought it was some huge overbet.

It's perfectly played IMO.
