Another decent full-tilt read

Posted on August 5th, 2009 by whinger. Filed under Poker.

The gist of this full-tilt post from Jay Greenspan is fairly simple: if you can’t decide whether to fold or raise, calling should not be the default action.

Simple, but very well put.

In these cases, the call isn’t a strategic choice; it’s a sort of compromise between raise and fold that has none of the advantages

It’s something I’ve found in my own game is a great way of leaking chips – calling on the flop when I’m not sure where I am – because (unless the turn hits me in a big way) I still won’t know where I am.
