The FAQ below we leave for historical purposes, but some of the information is outdated. What is the PSPC? The PSPC (PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship) is a high stakes poker tournament where hundreds of amateur players are able to win entry (via the coveted Platinum Pass) and compete with professional poker players for life-changing money. The PSPC has quickly become one of the most popular events in poker. Returning in August 2020, the second edition of the PSPC is taking place in sunny Barcelona, Spain.

What PokerStars Live 2020 Events are Awarding a Platinum Pass? PokerStars has confirmed that a number of their live events taking place in 2020 will be giving participants a chance to win a Platinum Pass to the PSPC. These events are peppered across the globe from Brazil to the Philippines, as well as European countries including France, Spain, Russia, and Monaco (Monte Carlo). At least nine events are scheduled in France and Spain as part of the popular Road to PSPC campaign, with each of these stops giving away two Platinum Passes. There will be three stops running under the European Poker Tour (EPT) brand, taking place in Sochi, Russia from March 20 – 29 where one Platinum Pass will be handed out. The tour will then move to Monte Carlo in late April, also giving away one Platinum Pass. PokerStars, which sponsors the popular South American tour, the Brazilian Series of Poker (BSOP) will hand out one Platinum Pass during BSOP Brasilia in January-February, two during BSOP Sao Paulo in March and once again during BSOP Winter Millions Sao Paulo in July. Two Platinum Passes will also be up for grabs in Manila, with one to be given away at Red Dragon Manila taking place in January and at Manila Megastack series in May.

By admin | | 0 Comments |

An intergalactic battlefield environment awaits in Relax Gaming’s new Multiplier Odyssey slot game. The unique theme, coloring, graphics, and sounds create an immersive experience for every player. Navigate through the galaxy and uncover multipliers and extra spins as you spin the reels! Details of the Game Enter the cosmic dimension once you load the reels of the game. The Base Game offers plenty of winning potential, especially with the Coin Collection Feature. Every Coin symbol in the game has a value. When a Collector symbol appears on the reels, the values of the coin symbols are added as multipliers and applied to the bet. With the 3x Coin Collector symbol, players can expect triple the prize from all Coin symbols collected in the game! This is a great way to earn wins. The online slot also offers bonus symbols on the reels. Find three and trigger extra spins. A total of seven spins will be provided. The spins are considered lives in the game. With a winning spin, you are given an extra life, so the extra spins can continue for quite some time as more lives are gathered. Each bonus symbol during the extra spins also has a multiplier, which equals greater earning potential! Joining Other Relax Titles Earlier this year, Relax Gaming added yet another game to its portfolio. In mid-January, the developer launched Kluster Krystals Megaclusters. The Big Time Gaming collaboration was the first game of the new year launched by the developer. Because of the partnership, the game includes the unique Megaclusters mechanic created by Big Time Gaming. In this game, players must earn eight segments in a cluster to double, triple, or quadruple the value of symbols in the cluster. The Megacluster feature will apply in the game and provide multipliers to help boost prizes up to 3x the value.

In Lawsuit, Churchill Downs Claims California Owners Seek “Shakedown” Over Online Betting Fee
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Posted on: February 6, 2021, 11:30h.  Last updated on: February 7, 2021, 01:56h. Steve Bittenbender Read MoreA Churchill Downs Inc. subsidiary filed a lawsuit in federal court this past week against horse owners in California in an attempt to keep them from taking the Louisville, Ky.-based company to arbitration over commissions the company’s online wagering service takes from bets made in the state. Hit the Road races to victory is Saturday’s Grade III Thunder Road Stakes at Santa Anita Park in Acadia, Calif. The track has boosted purses this year due to an agreement between owners, tracks and online wagering platforms. Last week, Churchill Downs sued the Thoroughbred Owners of California because it claims the organization is trying to force it to take reduced fees and give more money to owners. (Image: Santa Anita Park)Last Tuesday, Churchill Downs Technology Initiatives filed the lawsuit in the California Central District US District Court. In the filing, it said it reached an agreement with Santa Anita Park to establish a fee rate it would collect for wagers placed this year by California bettors through either TwinSpires or BetAmerica, its two online wagering platforms.The amounts Churchill Downs will receive were redacted throughout the document. However, they are below 6.5 percent of the total handle, according to the lawsuit. The Thoroughbred Owners of California were not a party to those negotiations. However, Churchill Downs claims the horsemen want the company to get only 4.1 percent of the money wagered.Under California law, online wagering platforms must submit copies of their in-state agreements with the TOC.Churchill Claims “Shakedown” from OwnersAccording to the lawsuit, Churchill Downs claims the owners want it to “voluntarily return” more than $1.2 million it received last year. In addition, on Jan. 13, TOC formally requested arbitration and started a 60-day window. The complaint calls that process “unconscionable” and one that undermines the company’s ability to utilize the court system.Churchill Downs called the TOC’s actions a “shakedown” and said it threatens the future of the TwinSpires and BetAmerica platforms within the state. The company said the owners are giving them three options, none of which are good – accept the lower rate, terminate the Santa Anita deal, or take arbitration.“In other words, Churchill Downs Technology has to abandon the millions of dollars it invested in its business in California and the rights it has under contract, or it has to proceed to a standard-less but binding arbitration,” the complaint states. “This violates the Due Process Clauses of the United States and California Constitutions.”Online Betting Grew Due to COVIDIn a letter Wednesday alerting members to the lawsuit, the organization said the law it’s invoking to seek arbitration is not new. It’s been on the books for more than two decades, the group said. It also stated the law allows both the tracks and horsemen to seek arbitration to set the fee.The TOC said it’s pursuing the action because the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 kept fans away from the tracks. Horsemen receive a larger share of the money bet at racetracks and off-track betting parlors. According to information from the organization, 9.5 percent of the money bet at the track goes toward purses. At OTBs, it’s 6.8 percent. For online betting, 5.4 percent goes toward the purses.Betting on thoroughbred racing throughout the United States almost exclusively takes place through pari-mutuel wagering. That means money from bettors is pooled and distributed, after the track takes out money, among the winning bettors. The TOC’s charts indicate about a 20 percent takeout, and that’s based on 2015 racing data.Elsewhere in the US, takeout is slightly less, usually between 15 to 18 percent. Money for the tracks and horsemen come from that. Horsemen and tracks generally receive a smaller share from online wagering.ADW wagering in California increased by over 40% year over year statewide in 2020 while purse generation from live tracks and OTBs dropped substantially due to COVID-19 closures and restrictions,” the letter stated.It also claimed Churchill’s platforms received more than $7 million in fees from bets placed in California.TVG, Stronach Platforms Pitch In to Boost PursesThe lawsuit comes on the heels of a “purse enhancement program” the TOC created along with Santa Anita, Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, The Stronach Group, and FanDuel’s TVG. As part of the program, the TVG and Stronach online betting platforms agreed to put up to $15 million toward purses for the 2021 and 2022 racing seasons.TwinSpires has been the nation’s largest online wagering platform for racing for years. It seemed like a curious exclusion at the time of the announcemen. With the filing of the lawsuit, its absence from the program now makes sense.In court documents, Churchill Downs said TOC CEO Greg Avioli asked all online platforms to agree to a 3 percent commission rate for the 21 and 22 campaigns.“Indeed, at such a rate, Churchill Downs Technology would be operating at a significant loss, and it would make little sense to do business in California or with California residents,” the lawsuit states.Santa Anita will use the program to increase its average daily purse by 10 percent to $533,000. Del Mar officials expect their daily purses to exceed $600,000 this year, according to the TOC. The TOC and track officials expect those increases to make the southern California meets more competitive with other racing markets that rely on casino or historical horse racing to bolster their purses.

A Glimpse into the Life of a Professional Poker Player
By admin | | 0 Comments |

09:1007 FebIt used to be the dream for many beginners to one day be able to give up their job and dive into the world of professional poker. They imagined if they worked hard enough they would collect untold riches and their image would be published in poker publications all around the world. What wasn’t to like?In years gone by the likes of Phil Ivey and Gus Hansen were known for their multi-million dollar swings both at the poker tables as well as on casino games. A lot of the high stakes regs were often seen blowing off some steam on the table games when the poker had gone wrong.Poker might be known as an easy way to make a hard living but that doesn’t put people off at the start. After all unless you have experienced what it really means to be a professional player it’s impossible to know for sure how you will take to it. So what does it take to make a card game your main source of income in 2021? What kind of life will you really lead behind the public scenes? Here are some points to consider if you harbour ambition to one day be a professional poker player.Dedication: There’s no doubt about it. If you’re not dedicated then you stand no chance of ever reaching your potential as a player. Almost two decades after the poker boom began we now have a wealth of information about the game and how the best players achieved their goals. Without exception, all of these players were dedicated. People never see the long hours put in behind the scenes, they only see the pros when they’re actually grinding. Natural ability will get a player only so far, but even the most gifted will still have to dedicate countless hours in pursuit of success.Study routine: It’s a fact that once a player has rounded off all the rough edges in their game then they must take a detailed approach towards fine-tuning their skill set. This isn’t the most fun part of poker by any stretch of the imagination.Many players find after a while that they only really enjoy playing and studying is just a chore. This will, of course, cause problems later on when they start to plateau and don’t work hard enough to overcome their deficiencies as players.Travel: Players who are more inclined towards the live game will have to get used to travelling to and from the playing venues. There is no way around it. Live tournament specialists can spend most of the year cooped up in hotel rooms while they are on the circuit. This is particularly the case in the US where online poker is still not fully legalised throughout the country.Health factors: Poker players of yesteryear were not known for their physical prowess. The poker tables of Las Vegas were mostly filled with specimens that hadn’t taken any kind of physical exercise in a long time. Today, keeping fit is seen as a prerequisite to success. Take a look at the top tournament players you see on the high stakes circuit. The vast majority are in great shape.So not only are you looking at a schedule full of studying, travel, and playing, you also ended to make time for the gym. SummaryIt is common for players new to the game to underestimate just how busy a professional player’s schedule can be. It is far more work than pleasure, for sure. This isn’t meant to kill anybody’s dreams, but hopefully it will make some readers think twice before taking the plunge and giving up their day job.Did you like this article?Tweet +0

In this piece, we will tell you everything you need to know about gambling in Scotland. First, we will begin with a ranking of the top 10 Scotland online casinos. You will then learn about the most important factors when choosing an operator – licences and certificates, payment methods, and game collection. After that, we will continue with the history of Scottish gambling, followed by a list of the top land-based casinos in the country. Next, we will brief you on the most important gambling regulations in Scotland. You will then discover the differences between playing in Scottish and English casinos, followed by some interesting facts. Lastly, we have prepared answers to the most common questions about Scottish casinos. Top Online Casinos in Scotland for 2021 Casimba (Best Online Casino in Scotland) Mansion (Great Welcome Bonus for Scots) Betway (Top-Rated Online Casino for Beginners) SlotsMillion (Best Slot Site for Scottish Players) Karamba (Top Live Dealer Casino in Scotland) 888Casino (Best Cross-Device Casino for Scots) Yako (Top Casino with Fast Transaction Times) Hyper (Best Poker Casino for Scottish Players) Mr. Play (Top Free Spins Bonus for Scots) Unibet (Great Ongoing Casino Promotions) Things to Look for in a Scotland Online Casino We took into account three crucial factors when putting together the ranking of the top Scotland casinos for 2021. First and foremost, we looked into the trustworthiness of the operators by checking their licences and certificates. The second most important thing to consider is what payment methods are accepted at the casino. Lastly, we checked out the diversity of the game collections of the operators. Now, let us dive into a bit more detail about each factor. Licences and Certificates for Scotland Casinos It is essential to double-check your preferred online casinos’ licences and certificates to ensure that they are operating up to the latest industry standards. Players can enjoy a safe and secure gambling experience at licenced operators. Here are some of the most respected organisations in the online gambling industry. Organisation Responsible For UKGC Licensing and Regulation MGA Licensing and Regulation GLI Testing and Certification iTech Labs Testing and Certification GamStop Gambling Treatment GambleAware Gambling Treatment For example, online casinos cannot operate within the jurisdiction of the UK unless they are regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. Another trusted and respected authority is MGA. Moreover, there are third-party auditing companies like GLI and iTech Labs, which test the casino’s fairness and products. Of course, there are organisations like GamStop and GambleAware that offer gambling treatment. We double-checked the licences and certificates of the top online casinos in Scotland, and we encourage you to get the habit of doing this yourself, too. It is quite easy. Start by going to your favourite casino site and look for stamps by either of the trusted gambling organisations. To check the actual licence or certificate, simply click on it. Then, you get redirected to a page that shows the existing certificate and licence number. Payment Methods Allowed in Scotland As we mentioned earlier, another vital factor to consider when choosing a casino is its range of payment options. This is particularly important as it would be a shame if you register just to find out your preferred method is not accepted. Thus, we make sure to list online operators that take transactions arranged with cards, e-wallets, bank transfers and pre-paid cards. Card payments are among the most widely accepted and trusted methods when it comes to online gambling. Among the most popular brands are Visa and Mastercard. However, there is a wide range of alternative options on the market, like e-wallets. Some of the most respected are Skrill, Neteller, and of course, PayPal. Also, there are online bank transfer services like Transferwise and Trustly. Types of Games Available at Casinos in Scotland Now, let us chat about the third criteria – game collection. In a trusted Scotland online casino, players can find a mix of slots, table games, live dealer tables, and scratch cards. In our opinion, an operator must have a rich and diverse collection to qualify for our top 10 rankings. This is why we make sure to review the types of games offered as well as which software providers power the platform. At the end of the day, you want to join a casino with interesting and existing titles, not one with scammy games that only take your money. Let us circle back a little, aside from operators with mixed game collections; some sites focus on one or two types of games. For instance, there are plenty of top-rated slot sites in the UK. History of Casinos in Scotland Just as you would expect, the history of gambling in Scotland goes way back before modern-day casinos. At first, men would participate in a gentleman’s agreement, which basically means that they placed a bet or a wager between each other. Later on, in the 1800s, the first bookmakers started to come around. However, often those were illegal or under very strict regulations. Everything changed in the 1960s with the legalisation of gambling across the whole country. Through the next 40 years, gambling establishments went into the mainstream and became a part of many people’s lives. Then came the internet, and online casinos flooded the market. Hence, the Gambling Act of 2005 was enforced, which meant that all Scotland casinos are required to receive a licence by the UKGC to operate within the country. Best Land-Based Casinos in Scotland While many Scottish players opt-in for playing at online casino sites, there are plenty of visitors at brick-and-mortar gambling establishments. There are about 15 gambling dens scattered across Scotland. Make no mistake; many of those are run by world-class brands. Here we have listed the top 10 land-based casinos in Scotland: Alea Casino Glasgow Genting Club Fountain Park Genting Casino Glasgow Grosvenor Casino Maybury Grosvenor Casino Dundee Grosvenor Casino Aberdeen Grosvenor Casino Merchant City Glasgow Grosvenor Casino Riverboat Glasgow Rainbow Casino Aberdeen The Corinthian Club Casino Top Casinos in Glasgow Located on the River Clyde, Glasgow is the biggest city in Scotland with a population of 598,830. Throughout the 18th and 20th centuries, its economy was reliant on trade and shipping. Today, the city is considered a cultural hub and many public and corporate events are held there. Also, Glasgow is known for its thriving music scene as well as its Victorian and art nouveau architecture. Truth be told, the number of pubs is far more impressive than the number of casinos in the city. However, there are many high-street gambling establishments, including five brick-and-mortar casinos. At the moment, the top-rated operators in the town are Alea Casino Glasgow, Genting Casino Glasgow, Grosvenor Casino Merchant City Glasgow, Grosvenor Casino Riverboat Glasgow, and The Corinthian Club Casino. We would like to take a moment here and tell you a little bit more about one of the most popular land-based casino brands in the UK. Founded in 1970,…

I heard what (ACR) was doing, and I heard all the improvements they’ve been making to the site and how they’re fighting bots. And basically to me it seemed like PokerStars did back in 2004, 2005. They’re really trying to grow the game.”It speaks volumes when Moneymaker says he was offered the chance to remain a part of the PokerStars team for another yeah but he thought the opportunity to represent a growing brand suited him much more.Did you like this article?Tweet +0

By admin | | 0 Comments |

It was an action-packed Friday on India’s No. 1 poker site, Adda52! Spearheading Friday’s roster on the site was the INR 22.5 Lac GTD The Ballers. Running as part of “Fast & Furious February”, the INR 7500 buy-in tourney pulled in a total of 279 entries by the time late registration closed. It took almost eight hours of intense play for the reg-infested field to whittle down to a heads-up showdown between last month’s Monster Turbo winner Ayush ‘lazyman’ Garg and this week’s Maverick winner Vaibhav ‘vroy219’ Roy, with the former eventually taking it down to win INR 5.03 Lac. Both players agreed to a HU deal that saw Roy collect INR 4.16 Lac for his runner-up finish in the tourney. The final spot on the podium belonged to Devrat “vickypune” Singh (3rd for INR 2.59 Lac), while Naresh “FireExit” Rathnam (4th place for INR 1,91,250) & Devvrat “glitch_d” Arya (5th place for INR 1,29,375) were the other notables who ended their run at the final table of the marquee tourney. 5 Lac GTD Running Hot The other major tourney running as part of “Fast & Furious February” on Adda52 was the 5 Lac GTD Running Hot featuring INR 2,200 entry buy-in. The tourney pulled in 272 entrants to collect INR 5.44 Lac in the prize pool. After over six hours of intense play, it was the mystery player ‘virapalli’ who shipped it for INR 1.41 Lac cash prize. Arun ‘runyrules’ Sriram finished runner-up for INR 84,320.

Pritzker, Illinois Officials Excited as Gaming Board Moves Rockford Casino Forward
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Posted on: February 6, 2021, 09:37h.  Last updated on: February 6, 2021, 09:37h. Steve Bittenbender Read MoreOne day after the Illinois Gaming Board gave preliminary approval for a Hard Rock Casino to be built in Rockford, Gov. JB Pritzker (D) offered his congratulations to the city and the backers of the proposed $310 million development. Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker (right) talks with staffers at a vaccination clinic in a Rockford high school on Friday. At a press conference at the site, Pritzker congratulated the city on getting preliminary approval for a casino from the Illinois Gaming Board. (Image: GovPritzker/Twitter)While in the northern Illinois community for a COVID vaccine press conference Friday, Pritzker acknowledged the work Rockford Mayor Tom McNamara (D) did behind the scenes, especially in the past year. The governor said he’s talked with the mayor numerous times over the course of the year, and Pritzker said that during every conversation the topic’s been discussed.There couldn’t be a better time to spur new jobs and economic development for this region as well as for the state of Illinois,” the governor said.The IGB’s action means that construction will be able to start on the project. However, city leaders weren’t exactly sure when that work would start.Rockford is the first community to get preliminary approval for a standalone casino license that was created as part of the 2019 expanded gaming law. Other casinos are slated for downtown Chicago, Danville, Chicago’s south suburbs, and Williamson County.Work is underway on adding casinos to two racetracks in the state.Investigation Leads to Questions, But No Evidence So FarThe IGB gave its approval even though a key investor in the project has another company that’s currently being investigated by the agency.Dan Fischer is the managing partner for 815 Entertainment. He also happens to own a chain of gaming cafes. That company remains under investigation after questions were raised about its acquisition of another chain’s properties. Under terms of the agreement, Fischer paid $2 million while a gaming terminal vendor paid $44 million.Illinois state law prohibits gaming machine vendors from also owning establishments that host them.A Fischer spokesperson told the Chicago Tribune that the Rockford team looks forward to meeting with IGB staff to answer “any questions” as the project continues through the approval process.Stakeholders presented their casino plans to the board at a Jan. 27 meeting. On Thursday morning, IGB board members met in closed session to discuss the project. They then reconvened that afternoon for a brief session to unanimously give its initial approval. There was no discussion about the investigation in open session.Board Chairman Charles Schmadeke said he had some questions about relationships but noted there was no evidence.Senator Expects Final Approval for Casino “Shortly”Pritzker isn’t the only official excited about seeing the casino project move forward in the second-largest city in Illinois. McNamara thanked the governor and the local delegation representing Rockford in the state legislature for their work.State Sen. Dave Syverson (R-Rockford) said it’s taken 20 years to get a casino for Rockford. He thanked McNamara, city staff, Fischer, and Hard Rock International for their work. He added that some criticized the plan for the city to pick an applicant and present that to the IGB. However, those communities that have offered state regulators multiple proposals are still waiting to get heard.“While today’s action is not final approval, it does allow Hard Rock to move forward with and for us to get the temporary casino up and running,” said Sen. Syverson, a co-sponsor of the expanded gaming bill. “I am confident because of the great work done at the front end of this process, the final approval will come shortly. This is a huge win for Rockford and the region.”Developers will build the casino at the city’s former Clock Tower Resort, just off Interstates 39 and 90. It will employ up to 1,000 people. It will also provide up to 1,200 construction jobs leading up to the venue’s grand opening.Once open, the facility will contain a 65,000-square-foot casino as well as a 1,600-seat auditorium.

Polk vs. Negreanu Challenge Recap: What You Missed if You Were One of the Few Who Didn’t Watch
By admin | | 0 Comments |

February 6, 2021 Gossip, Rumors & Buzz Doug Polk and Daniel Negreanu finally wrapped a lengthy heads-up poker challenge, so let’s take a look back at all the action from start to finish. Polk vs. Negreanu was more competitive than the final score indicated. (Image: Poker Central) The poker pros played exactly 25,000 hands of $200/$400 heads-up no-limit hold’em on WSOP.com. They began the match in early November and concluded it this past Wednesday. In the end, Polk finished with a $1.2 million profit, right at 30 buy-ins. The win was quite convincing and left little doubt as to who the better heads-up player is. Granted, nearly everyone expected Polk to coast to victory given his heads-up experience. But despite the seven-figure loss, Negreanu was actually more competitive than you may have anticipated. Underdog Shines in Early Stages Negreanu and Polk played all but one of 36 sessions online. The first match — 200 hands — took place Nov. 4 on PokerGo at the PokerGo Studio in Las Vegas. “DNegs” shined in the only live session, surprisingly winning more than $110,000. Once the challenge moved to the internet, Polk took over, winning the next two sessions by a combined $385,000. But Negreanu would bounce back and dominate the following two weeks. He booked four wins over five sessions, totaling $447,000 and moved back into the lead. At this point, Polk realized he was in for a tougher battle than he expected. But he had no reason to panic and still felt he had a big edge. Variance is a factor in the short-term in poker. Starting on Day 9, in which he booked a $205,521 win, Polk would completely dominate the rest of the competition, save for a few rough outings. By Day 18, the Upswing Poker founder was up just a shade under $1 million as the midway point was fast approaching. Negreanu had an opportunity at 12,500 hands to surrender without penalty. He considered doing so but opted to continue playing as he felt much of the deficit was due to bad luck. For a while, it appeared Negreanu made the right decision to continue playing. He won seven of eight sessions, but most were for small amounts (two buy-ins for less). So, while he was able to chip off a nice chunk of Polk’s lead, he still trailed by more than $500,000. Over the final 10 sessions, Polk won eight of them, including $298,984 on Day 30, $209,281 on Day 35, and $255,722 in the finale. In between, Negreanu won $390,032 on Day 31, the biggest score for either player. Stats from the Challenge Polk won 30 buy-ins ($1.2 million) over 25,000 hands. But Negreanu won 17 of the 36 sessions, which is a bit surprising considering the lopsided final score. Upswing Poker, Polk’s training site, tracked every hand that resulted in a pot of $80,000 or more. Among those 192 pots, 68 were for over $100,000, and five had over $170,000 in the middle. We tracked all 192 $80,000 pots from Polk vs Negreanu. Some info: 68 were $100,000+11 were $150,000+5 were $170,000+ Check them out here:https://t.co/FE0ijknuBv pic.twitter.com/mHT72onULz — UpswingPoker (@UpswingPoker) February 5, 2021 Oddly enough, Negreanu won the three largest pots the challenge and seven of the nine largest. On Day 30, the session in which he actually lost nearly $300,000, he shipped a $187,198 pot with a straight against Polk’s failed bluff. On a board of J-9-5-7, Negreanu, who checked back the flop in position, made a pot-sized bet ($3,598) and Polk check-raised to $20,675 and got a call. The 2 landed on the river and Polk continued his aggression, putting Negreanu all-in for $71,126. “DNegs” snap-called with the stone cold nuts (10-8), while Polk showed down Q-8 for a failed bluff. On the very next hand, Polk took down a $60,000 pot to get a rebate on the previous hand. After all was said and done, the long-time feuding pros gained respect for each other. Polk praised Negreanu for taking on such a difficult task, a complete 180 from his pre-challenge opinion.

Looking for advice on these two situations that i really got stuck on. Question 1 Villain (UTG) 100BB Hero (BTN) 142BB Pre-Flop (2.5BB (1 penalty BB)): Hero has Kc, 4c check (pental BB), fold, Hero raises 3BB, fold, fold, villain calls Flop (7.5BB, 2 players): 10h, 3h, Kh villain checks, hero bets 6BB, villain calls Turn (19.5BB, 2 players): 5h check, check River (19.5BB, 2 players): Kc check, Hero bets 19BB, villain raises 91BB and is all-in... ......??? fold ???....... Question 2 [bet sizing] V1 (UTG): 182.5BB V2 (MP): 49BB V3 (CO): 153BB Hero (SB) 115BB Pre-Flop (1.5BB): Hero has 4d, 4c V1 raises 3BB, V2 calls, V3 calls, fold, Hero calls, fold Flop (13BB, 4 players): 4h, 5c, 4s Hero bets 5BB, V1 raises to 10BB, V2 calls, V3 folds, Hero calls Turn (43BB, 3 players): Kc Hero bets 18BB, V1 fold, V2 raises to 36 BB and is all-in, Hero calls River (115BB, 2 players): 2c V2 shows 8h, 8c. i am not trying to brag here. Obviously i couldn't believe my luck but really struggled to size my bets. all i could think was small enough they don't fold but large enough to build that pot. What would you have done? Context Question 1: I was not many hands into this game <50ish and it was the first hand villain had played. I had noticed that everyone was playing very tight and very soft. I thing i had raised several hands that had folded straight through the blinds so wasn't worried about play K4s. The fourth heart on the turn spooked me so i checked and when it checked through decided to bet the river thinking if villain had a flush they would've bet the turn. Question 2: >200 hands in and the table is really tight with Villain 1 being a full-time nit (the first proper nit i have ever played against). 5BB was the largest i dare go. I think the raise from the nit hid the strength of my hand and i was lucky the others did not fold then. submitted by /u/Barnziebus [comments]
