Mike Postle’s Greatest Hits

Mike Postle’s Greatest Hits


what’s up guys jeff boski here on this
edition of Boski hands we’re gonna be going over four important hands played
by Mike Postle if you don’t know Mike Postle was one of the biggest winners in
all of the Sacramento area for the past year let’s see what Mike Postle does that
establishes him as one of the greatest No Limit players that ever lived
Mike he is in the zone says Stephen H yeah man he is feeling it feeling he has
made basically no missteps tonight he got into one cooler spot where he
turned a set of tens with pocket tens and his opponents I can’t remember if
one or both made it better him but he was able to go one of them made a flush
his second he both made flushes no he was all heard best
they both Rivard flushes and he was able to get away from it and so right yeah
the spot where he could have been really epically cool ‘red he was able to avoid
a river disaster so yeah man he is just feeling it in this hand the blinds are
five five with the $10 straddle we see an early position limp with the eight
four suited don’t do this action folds to the nine four suited who puts in a
raise to $75 I don’t do this either just fold
jacket off suit puts in the flat call don’t do this
and then our hero in the hand Mike passo looks down at three deuce off suit on
the button and easy fold under most circumstances but maybe this guy’s doing
a little something different he might be playing a little bit above the rim today
he puts in the flat call he does have position and he does have blockers two
pocket threes and pocket deuces so that’s worth something the big blind has
five dollars invested and looks down at Jack’s head off suit so he flicks in
another seventy don’t do this any other players come along for the ride we’re
five ways to a flop of Queen Queen seven action checks to the original raiser who
actually has a flush draw time to continue the story and put in a
CE bet if somebody doesn’t have a queen you might just get it through and of
course you can build the pot again slow-played Queens when you hit your
flush it’s pretty disguised so I advise a seedbed here with a nine high flush
draw but he does not see bet he checks and everybody else checks so let’s see a
turn the turn is a three putting the backdoor Spade draw out there and my
pasal somehow has the best hand extra checks again to the preflop raiser with
the nine four of hearts and he thinks now is a good time to take a stab no one
showed me strength so pretty reasonable that he could have been slow playing a
queen or a middling pair and now going for value he bets 225 dollars
action folds to Mike pasal on the button who has now turned to pear juice kicker
pretty marginal spot here you’re not ahead of much so it’s usually a fold or
call spot but Mike pasa looks deep down into his soul and reads his man for a
flush draw and he puts in the raise 575 dollars to go excellent read Mike
somehow knows his two pair is good somehow someway action folds back to the
nine four of hearts what do you do in this spot you’re out of position with a
bad flush draw on a paired board and Michael Brienne knows he has the chest
checking in longer he turns a three and he’s like I have the best hand
so either way okay let’s say it’s a pot size bit and walk him up just has to
fold a he doesn’t have Mike does have the best hand be lock him up is gonna
try and be try to draw to a flush on a paired board he can’t know that his nine
in his for any good so he just has to fold
so again Mike’s instincts are just my cam I can see his opponents cards right
now he just can see their cards I mean I mean okay here’s what a lot of players
would do in that spot if it goes first of all they wouldn’t be playing three
deuce in a race pot in the first place but let’s see how that’s hair on this
board let’s say they let’s say they did find themselves with three deuce and the
flop went check check and then they turn a pair of threes and the board was
pairing on the phone they have Queens and threes okay a lot of times they have
turned the best hand which is exactly what Mike figured out I
turn the best hand here but what a lot of players would do it’s not raised they
would call right like a proponent would bet them be like maybe like hmm I think
I have the best hand here now because I went check check and like what do you
have you really have three queens call okay right and then what river comes
like I call but then every single river card sucks for your hand and your
opponent maybe is going to barrel at you again
if they’re bluffing and you’re not gonna be able to call are you gonna call again
or they’re going to river a heart and now you don’t have the best hand or
river on nine and they’re gonna be like check and then you’re like ah check
three so in other words a lot of players including probably myself if I wouldn’t
be there were three deuce but if I was like I would maybe call like I know the
best hand call and then I would set myself up for a million different
scenarios where I lose this pot on the river Mike is too smart for that
so he is like I have the best hand so he the first part of the logic we do the
same thing but the second part is where Mike varies because he has the heart to
click back at his opponent and the hand just ends right there there is don’t let
his opponents gonna have three queens sometimes come right back over the top
Mike can fold his opponent is going to call sometimes although probably not
often because what he had a flush draw because you still couldn’t call right so
like most of the time the hand is just gonna end right there and Mike is gonna
scoop it up and that’s just a sick play by Mike occasionally your opponent will
have had three Queens as played they will come back over the top or whatever
our call and you can shut down on the river and whatever he’ll lose those
times but man so much of the time what you just saw is what’s gonna happen and
Mike is gonna scoop this huge pot huge pot is three deuce he’s scooping
hundreds of dollars let the youngsters come in and take care of all the other
legality you know those all the aspects that they didn’t know because the elders
back there I asked them how how do you build a bridge across the river they
would say easy just cut a tree and let it fall over so there’s they’re just
old-school with you know they don’t have any type of tech tech right you know the
modern technology yeah I stepped in I was like you know what hey I don’t I’m
sorry I don’t want to interrupt yeah here’s the hand so let’s let’s
figure it out here so it looks like you raised with it you just decide to open
the pot up and Mike three bet with Ace King and you’re gonna come along here
and see a flop so what are you thinking when you get three bet here okay because
I saw him with eight six and he was able to make that play back pan I figured his
range is pretty wide right so so because he beat me with eight six I was like I
actually told him in there I was like hey you don’t have eight six hands do
you and he was like no and you know he he chuckled so I called right so now I
flop you know I have a decent equity here and let’s see what happens here I
think he say he checked to you he checked to me so I figure okay ace king
ace Queen suited right that’s my thought process and so I was just gonna I was
just gonna bet here and yeah and Mike’s got like the wheel draw he’s not going
anywhere the Jack of nothing it’s a brick Mike checks again and what are we
doing now we’re not slowing down I like it Mike still just has ace high and he
just refuses to be blown off the hand you bet about 250 well knowing his hand
now I think because he has like Ace King he’s floating cuz he could hit a ace a
king or a four I think that’s what he’s thinking of course certainly an order or
ace I might be the best hand so those are all the reasons for the call in the
flop makes total sense now here on the turn though it’s getting a little dicey
err you know now we’ve missed all of those float cards now we’re just calling
thinking a sighs the best hand and there’s another brick on the river
nobody has it anything and mike is gonna now check a third time right I mean
obviously he’s not leading just he looks at his cards again do I have the ace of
spades nope he doesn’t even have any blockers he checks again and now you are
here in no-man’s land with no choice to win the pot other than to bluff and you
shove and that’s a great job Mike finds a call here God is such a sit call you
wanna manufacture a win guys err I’m a donkey but a donkey with a
reason here come on now yeah but not like somebody said in the chat it’s like
you know this works against like 95% of players it just mics that 1% of people
that can put it all together and and also then have the Kurds to call yeah
cuz even people can still put together but like yeah ok fine fine
so I think you’re full of s but I’m still gonna fold I don’t think he’s a 5%
right here of the players I think he’s like point zero zero zero zero five
players here cuz yeah like come on now yeah how you call here hi guys is really
something amazing yeah and Mike somehow he just how he just has you dead red for
air I mean gosh he’s not even beating some of the like semi Bluffs that you’re
making here we’re like you you’re turning a2 into a bluff you know man
like you have like you have like two like 10 10 to applicative you would have
eight six offsuit you can have 10 to at diamonds here I
mean I know it’s a three-bed pot but for god sakes like so what have you have
something like a two’s that has to bluffed I don’t know man he just doesn’t
even beat some of the bluff sure I could have five four here right yeah well yeah
but I think Mike thinks that if you had five four like maybe you’re gonna check
back on turn sometimes like I don’t think you’re gonna necessarily triple
barrel five four so I think that it’s you can have a two here sometimes but I
don’t know man to just to show up with no I mean you know it’s possible for me
to triple barrel with a 5-4 because if he has a hand like pocket eights nine
stands here you know so now there’s two overs right I just want to see the whole tables face
on the seat aces are cool like God and no no no you
what the hell don’t what the whole chat is now gonna chime in with like get a
book at my ticket I’ll be there tomorrow can’t wait to play in this game
I wish the dual comp ace check check check on an ace alright I’ll check hold on there flow is easy what are you
doing give me the deck what troubles relax man don’t get so agitated looks
like we got a road game here what the hell’s going on over here stupid that
guy’s the god check out this hand from this session
was saying I don’t even know what you’re saying you’re saying you’re dealing off
the bottom of the deck Oh God come on guys
what did he give it to me seven hearts the boys professionals you working hey
no listen listen I was winning before this guy got here alright okay okay
let’s let the cars do the talking with the seven didn’t help you listen to what
you have to say Ozzy turn the cards what hey come on three of a kind you dolt
Ozzy’s onyx is like the same one oh thanks too take it easy now supposed to like Venus
alright alright Mike is showing that he likes to raise any old hand cards be
damned it doesn’t matter all that matters is aggression and aggression and
aggression aggression – alright and Lou is gonna defend his button and AC is
gonna call alright ace ace 5 on the flop live with the backdoor straight draw
flush draw Mike still at the 7 deuce bluffing cars AC we don’t know my pasal
decides to bed 55 dollars on the ace ace 5 flop definitely a good bet with his
range advantage should get a lot of folds and be immediately profitable Lou
is not buying what mike is selling and he puts in the call with the backdoor
flush draw back to our straight draw in Qinghai when the turn brings a 10 Mike
continues the story and bets 110 dollars alright so we’ll see if the hundred $10
bet works might be difficult now that Lou has a gut shot straight draw but and
think he’s really more looking to have a darkness Mike going for here I might get
this point he’s just he’s just pure bluffing okay what I was thinking but I
wasn’t sure if there was actually stressed but he picked well there is in
he raised preflop so he’s gonna have more aces in his range now this raised
from Lou isn’t if he raises isn’t really kind of the smartest thing because it’s
like would you really do this if you had an ace you know like if you have this a
full house or something would you really be raising here and stop your opponent
from bluffing like he just kind of make any sense if you have the ACE why would
you want to raise here and have you’re bluffing opponent stop bluffing
Mike pasal Reed’s rich like a book in puts into three bets 585 dollars so this
is also why you don’t want to raise here you know with the king Jack is now you
just get better with a five bed like it he just kind of
sees it for what it is you don’t what like why would you be raising with an
ace here Eddie gets through rich has to fold his Qinghai which happens to be the
best hand Mike scoops a monster pot with seven deuce off suit he points at the
victim gets tempted to show his hand says a few words and eventually shows
the bluff he can’t help himself duper’s delight in full effect slaps hands with
the neighbour and celebrates in victory Andrew Postle Mike jr. which is
probably really insulting dude sorry Andrew he’s his own man man he says my
brother gets paid off when he is bluffing people and they think has
something and when he has something people think he’s bub oh I see right and
right yeah man he’s been just extra expert eatin it–at having his opponents
pay and when he has it and having his opponents fold when they do not and he
is just setting himself up in perfectly tonight you really I mean he what can
you say I mean the guy is can see his opponents cards right now it’s really
really really hard to play against a guy who knows what you have all the time and
just always seems to find the perfect move and as I was saying you know I mean
finding the perfect move in spots where very few people would make that exact
move you know he’s finding raises when most people
would find calls he’s finding calls and most people would find folds that’s when
most people would find checks just a table that I don’t really want to be at
at this exact moment but Andrew I bet you do min I bet you do like you’re like
I can take this guy there was this one bet that I won
against him when I was seven and ever since that I’ve known I can take him
let’s see if lock him up can take this one he does have a gut shot to Broadway
but he’s gonna have to beat Brandon’s Kang Mike has eight and if we’ve learned
anything tonight it’s that Mike doesn’t need the best hand or the best jaw or
the best anything to win however Harlan Harlan is fired 300 with the old nine hi
and Brandon is hemming and hawing with his King oh and he’s kind of fold you
can by his body language he hates it he
hates it he can only beat a bluff he’s going in as a bluff
so the ace-ten got out because yeah what do you do you know you’re just gonna
cold call a a pot size bet with a gut shot nope and ah man
Harlan gets the King to fold two and now Mike is sitting here with the best hand
bottom pair and he’s gonna have to fold how in the world can my continued how
how in the world I just can’t see it God but you could tell Mike’s instincts are
so good he’s like I don’t want to fold here he has third pair and he’s like I
don’t want to fold I mean you know oh my god dude Mike is just ridiculous he
finds a call and Harlan is in absolute no man’s land here Mike checks and what
is hardly gonna do now is he gonna fire how is Mike fooling Harlan has no choice
he can’t check he has no showdown value he knows if he gives up the hand is over
Mike’s gonna win there’s $900 in the pot good lord dude Mike is just like I can’t
breath is the dentist in yeah we need like the whirring sound effect of like
the dentist drill in the burning tooth smell I mean I mean it is just
full-blown he’s he’s got he’s got his assistant scraping your tooth with a
hook I mean he’s just dentists ting it up right now and Harlan does bet again
because he has to and mike is he gonna find another call I mean I just can’t I
if he calls the flop I mean why is he folding now I guess like he would think
well I mean I didn’t believe you on the flop and now if you’re gonna bet again
at me after I call you I guess I believe you but Mike doesn’t believe Harlan at
all and look at him he’s like what should I do
this is gonna be fascinating to see what and you what is Mike saying Mike is like
he probably was like I don’t believe you at all Harlan I call call so now it
doesn’t even need it but now but now Harlan Harlan can never blow him off the
hand now no that’s never the Harlan has tried twice I wanted a card that if
Harlan shoved the river would be a tough smart let’s watch for Mike that’s what I
want yeah I just can’t even I’m Mike checks again which is the perfect move
see now and like you know some players would like how I find two pair on the
Irv or barrel and it wouldn’t you know if we’re then Harlan’s has to fold
Mike’s too good for that Mike’s like check what you gonna do Harlan one boy
in Harlan is like what do I do in the pot you know Harlan has like what
is that five a thousand and Harlan has a heart 1603 minutes with like nine ten
right so he does not have a ten okay maybe I mean if I only could have nine
deuce here what you know you’re right because you’re trying to think of a here
you’re right you’re right so let’s say let’s say that that Harlan has something
like nine ten well okay fine he would bet the flop and my calls but I think
Harlan is just gonna check behind with a legitimate draw on the turn a lot so I
think if he has nine ten of clubs well maybe that’s a very expensive again
that’s one then yes then he might play it this way but like you said that’s
okay he has to fire he has no choice at faster fire and Mike says in 1200 to
1800 and Mike has an easy call now he had two hard calls and now he’s got an
easel and why is he agonizing but you know why he could be like a it could be
Kingi it could be Harlan were thinking straight but hands that beat two pair
Harlan has even top two you’re right you’re right Harlan has fired all three
streets so I’m giving I’m being a little bit you know I can see the cards II by
saying like oh my god I can totally understand okay look you know I mean
obviously he’s he’s just thinking it over he’s gonna call spoiler alert
there’s no chance he calls two times on flop and turn with his exact holding and
now follow he’s gonna call of course of course he’s getting on for it would have
been fascinating to see if Mike doesn’t hit a queen there let’s say the river is
a brick ball that’s I would think that’s what I want he does call Mike just takes
Harlan to the freakin clean or no I should say he puts Heartland in his
dentist chair refuses him novocaine and goes to town with the drill
