Villain a loose reg that doesn’t grasp preflop concepts too well.
P: looser open, could definitely find a fold here in a different scenario. But BTN and SB 3b rly narrow and BB is a fish.
F: cbet for value. Reg xr and his range here is QT, sets, wraps, pair+combodraw. He has all the wraps bcs his blind 3b is 1% over decent sample. I did an adhoc estimation with equilab and it seems we should call. I am not sure. Maybe a detailed range breakdown in PJ would show different results.
T: Turn gives us ridic amount of outs but also completes some of his draws. If we are not up against a set or higher fd we have 17 clear out. I decided to call based on that. Raising AI makes no sense. We have no FE and mostly we are putting in the money behind when he calls(and he alw cls imo). Could be that I am bit optimistic in this spot.
1.) Is flop a call vs his xr if his raising range is rly narrow as described?
2.) I was positive ingame turn is a call and I am wondering if anyone can prove different?

I would fold this hand pre. Reason being you hold first and second nutflush card. On top of that it is three to a suit and pretty disconnected.
As played it is fine. We cannot chase 2p outs that give us pretty bad visibility and hard decisions on later streets.

Guys limping are 70+ vpip passive whales. Villain raising is 45/17.
P: I am not completely sure here. We have a pretty good hand, but it will go mw most of the time and only quality it has is some sort of connectedness.
F: We flop a 13out wrap. Villain pot cbets and whale flats. We are usually up against a rly strong range here or at least we should be. I was thinking about shipping because of one guy overcalling but I don’t know which has the higher EV - peeling and stacking on decent turns or just stacking of. It didn't instinctively feel optimal. We are oop which makes our decision harder ott if we hit.
T: We pickup additional outs with our fd and we have sufficient EQ to stack off.
1. Can we stack our wrap otf?
2. When we call flop and hit T should we be donk shoving here?
Jan. 6, 2017 | 12:03 p.m.
Villain is 54/38 wit SB rfi of 60%.
F: An okay defend I believe
T: We pickup a fd to go along our oesd. So we call. I don't think raising is an option w/o any significant blockers?
R: River is a brick. And we are very low in our range. Can I bluff here profitably? I would have rare boat combos here like A7 or a very few 44. I'd probably fold 97 and raise 77 and 99 ott.
1. How to decide if bluff otr is good?
2. Pairing river cards intuitively feel bad for bluffing, but that should not be the case if we can rep hands viably, right?
Jan. 5, 2017 | 1:42 p.m.
Villain 34/20 with 11% 3b. He is bombing even in MP with 29%(14), probably a sample, but just to paint the picture that he probably 3b same wide range from all positions.
F: He xb so he is pretty much capping himself to medium weak hands or air.
T: We turn nuts with, nfd redraw, that is why I pot in this case, to charge his weaker fd’s or to freeroll him when we are splitting.
R: It was really hard to imagine how many boat combos can he have here. My instinct told me not many, because firstly he xb flop, we pot ott and we block many cards that would make his "2p+combo draw" ott a call. At the same time it is probably too thin to vbet for value anyway. We block clubs twice which is not the greatest thing.
A lot of gray area in my thinking here is created by his wide 3b %, I have no idea how he constructs his range and how weighted are some hands then postflop.
1. This river is to thin to vbet probably - b/f kinda makes little sense, right?
2. Is xc an option?
Jan. 5, 2017 | 1:28 p.m.
This is a 93/67 that is steaming because he lost a couple of stacks. Now he is 3b every hand and I would assume his 3b is well over 20%.
We are pushing marginal EQ here vs 20% 3b and are a small favourite. Vs a 30% range we are pushing good 54%.
Should I 3b this hand pre or call and play post – gotta consider flop will be mw if we flat and our hand can hit nuts only with a str8.
Dec. 30, 2016 | 3:19 p.m.
Vs a 99/47 w 50% 3b over 76h. Cbet F overall 95%. Cbet in 3b pot 90/100(4)/100(1)
P: Semi-connected hand 3 to a suite, not sure how good opening this wide is when there is a maniac with high 3b% in the blinds, but all in all I do want to play a lot of hands vs him so I decided open it.
F: Flop GS+FD. It already feels bad to call vs pot bet with weak draw but vs his tendencies I need to defend I think.
T: I pick up weak sd that doesn’t help + 2 extra outs for trips that are probably clean.
1.) Maybe pre is already a mistake.
2.) I am pretty torn between just calling flop or shoving otf, because of how wide he is. I expect some FE??
3.) As played I think I definitely have better hands ott, that could call and that don’t block his “bluffing cards”.
Dec. 30, 2016 | 3:14 p.m.
Vs a very bad lag fish, I’ve seen him do all sorts of crazy stuff.
-flop rai tpwk QJT6 on 24Qr and stacks off - 3bp
-2p catch on T R w str8 poss
-dsKK pre BBvCO 100bb
P: I dunno if I should l or rai these KK here, 5 is a dangler so I decide to limp.
F: Call he can cbet worse, or air, Kx2 servers as future blocker, which I can use on J, A, 9 turns.
T: I decide to put my blockers to the test. After he raises it just seem so ful of shit. I timebanked till the last second. I am afraid I made a mistake in first place by trying to bluff such opponent. Later I saw him stack very weak boat 300-400bb deep and 450bb deep stackoff on the flop with 30% eq combo draw hand.

P:it’s a multiway pot with one whale, one fishy player and one reg. I dunno if flatting here is okay cuz it is three to a suite?
F: I rly dunno what to do here. I want to start vbetting vs the whale but I dunno what size to use and I know mostly I am gonna have a rly rly tough time on turn. Whale calls.
T: I giveup, he has a lot of flushes in his range, his sizing is huge
Oct. 12, 2016 | 11:06 a.m.
F: WT fcked up - pot otf is 40€. So we are having spr of 0.25. We need 17% EQ overall, which we don’t have vs trips and boats only. But if one guy calls with worse, like fd or KK, we need to shove here right?
Oct. 12, 2016 | 11:06 a.m.
Villain in this hand posted.
-First question is about the lead on this flop. Other players could have better sets, but also 2p combos. I am not sure how many streets of value can I have but I feel if I do want to be betting I want to start on earlier streets.
-As played ott he pots it, I do block nutstr8, but it just looks so strong. I don't think he picks this sizing with a worse hand.

I am wondering what are the things to think about when deciding to cbet aces in srp?
In this spot we block one set, we also have a nfd blocker. Is this good enough to cbet this flop with a plan to continue on turned flush cards?
As played what should I do on the turn? Villain is playing 71/22.
Sept. 10, 2016 | 8:09 p.m.
Villain is 28/21 after 544h.
3b overall 10%
Cbets flop 69%, turn 79% and his river BET overall is 38%. wtsd 22%
So I am isolating a huge whale pf and villian likes to 3b wider when we are isoing a bad player.
Are we calling with Q's here at all on R?
I probably wouldn't even have a 4b range in this specific spot pf. So I would have AA, KK, QQ, JJ and some suited bw and strong aces.
Jan. 10, 2016 | 3:26 p.m.
Villain is 23/19. MP rfi 19%. F23b 65% (MP 67%). Cbet 63/44/49. wsd 25%. wwsf 47%.
First question is a preflop one. I would 3b pre most of the time but I wanted to trap midstacking BB who was a very aggro sqzer. So in this situation two things are kinda pro only flatting QQ pre. Aggro sqzer, open raiser folding to much to 3b and open raiser barreling to much on flop.
If open raiser doesn't have pre and flop "leaks" is it better to just 3b and leave trapping asside?
Postflop I think flop and turn are standard.
Second question is on the river. How do we determine in this spot if villain is bluffing enough to make the call? I kinda went through process of elimination street by street where villain comes to the river with all the nutted hand combos(better hands), all nfd and JT oesd combos. We need to be good a bit more than the quarter of the time.
We do have that eq w QQ if he bluffs every single nfd combo and some oesd combos.
Oct. 9, 2015 | 12:20 p.m.
Villain posting/limping is a whale, that is why I decide to flat pre and keep him in.
Villain isolating is laggy reg 29/24 w cbet 55/59/57, wtsd 24%.
Did I play this okay?
Oct. 7, 2015 | 10:28 a.m.
How do I construct my cold 4b range here. Is AQ, KQ, AJ too wide beside my value part of range? I guess I would be gii w JJ+ AK most of the time.
As played how am I constructing my cbetting range here? With bdfd and bdsd I feel cbetting flop, shoving turn on cards that improve my outs is okay?
Oct. 7, 2015 | 10:15 a.m.
Folding flop seems most attractive option here, with no backdoor flush outs and with some reverse implied if we hit a 5c.
As played I rly don't know how I feel about xr range in a 3way spot on turn. I probably wouldn't even have one.
River, as played your hand is probably top of your range. I don't know if he ever shoves worse for value besides 22,44,A3s but I still don't think we can xf this river. I would be xc.
Sept. 28, 2015 | 8:30 a.m.
- Is it better to get it in preflop in this spot or is he too tight?
As general I would very rarely develope a 5b range. As played JJ+, AK is 3.02% and this gives us a flip but I still wouldn't do it. So an overall answer is I would rarely shove here with any part of my range.
- How to play postflop, do we just fold flop? Call flop fold turn?
You are getting 3,2:1 on the flop. Vs smth like JJ+, AK you have 27% eq. While if we take away JJ from his range and add some 4b bluffs like A4s, A5s, your EQ drops to 10%.
Most ppl would also x their, JJ-KK on this flop in a 4b pot.
So I think folding directly on flop, sounds fine to me.
