Nyum Nyum Nyum

From an article I read today. The author's actually quite good and talks a lot of sense, but check this :

"Someone in early position raised to 600 with 100/200 blinds, and this left him with 2600 left in his stack after the raise. A huge stack called in middle position and my friend was on the button with 9800 and his hand was 6c 6d . . . I wouldn't be worried about the big stack in the middle because he will almost always fold to [an allin reraise] and his range of hands in that spot is probably pretty wide, and there's almost no way he can call that big of an all in bet based on the action."

As Homer would say, Arrrglglglglglhglhgllhglhglhlg.

And there's more : What a day. How about this pearl of wisdom :

"For example, if you treble up in the first hand of a tournament, say from 2,000 to 6,000 chips, then every one of your chips has lost some of their equivalent cash game value. The vast majority of tournaments pay less than half of the prize pool to the winner. Because of this, your treble up in the tournament is only worth about half of what it would be worth to you in a cash game. "

People get paid to write this stuff. I know, I'm scared too.

At which point, I assume, middle stack called the all-in and turned over KK.

It wasn't you, was it?

No :-). In fact we don't even find out what happened. In the end the author recommends folding the 66. I told you he was quite sensible, mainly.
