Value Call

It's nice to hit a hand where you pretty much know you have it and a big pot is built early.
My favorite parts of this hand were 6th and 7th streets:

How the hell does he bet let alone call your raise with a Jack? Jesus. Table selection. Table selection. Table selection. Please do not tell him this is not the Stud table.

Another nice hand Surf. I like the call for the raise on 7th very much.

Im not sure what notes you have on DJ, but the guy seems to be a very loose player, brags about how much money he has won at Razz, and chastises anyone who gets emotional at the table. Oh but dont outdraw him, he gets a little emotional himself.

He regularly raises/calls with 9s and 10s. Ive seen him call a complete with a J once. But i dont think hes an idiot, i think he just doesnt care (and he says that in chat quite a few times).

By the way, I love Value Call topic too! Very interesting about poker games.
See you soon!
