Counter against loose-maniac is to play very tight. I guess you will up variance a lot as you get into more close postflop spots/ flip more than you really dominate random hands. I guess variance has you stuck where you are right now if you played that much higher before.

I dont think he has QT that often. I like jamming. You still deny some EQ when you pot here. Tough to say but I dont see a big mistake here.

All-in. NL 5. PPl can have 2 pair and sets here.

Ugliest board in the world.

He will call you with 66 (3) 55 (1), A5s (2), 56s (2), 77 (3), maybe 33 (3) hands like 76s (3), 86s (4). Total of 17 combos. He He might call with 88,99,TT,JJ which are 24 combos.

In order to valuebet profitably, you have to beat at least 50% of his range. If he always calls with small OP, you make way more money with the jam then just check.

Snowie sucks. Advises to call river bets way too wide.

This sounds like you have a mental blockade more than not knowing when to bluff strategically.

You have to just not care about the potential of losing when bluffing big.

Any kind of money scared will make you be a losing player or at least making you stay behind a much bigger winrate.

Focus on the joy of winning, not the fear of losing.

What does that mean for HU poker?

Jan. 23, 2017 | 4:37 p.m.

I prefer x/calling flop. As played, fold turn.

40 VPIP guy. Jam and pray. Poker sucks some times.

Stealing as well as defending wider becomes more profitable due to more dead money. At least theoretically. I don t play live high stakes.

Jan. 21, 2017 | 9:50 a.m.

Kinda look fishy. I would fold without info. Altough I expect most players to lead Tx or better rather than hoping to induce. I also prefer x/back flop and then start v-betting. Villain can put you in tough spots OTF, not to mention he can rep a ton more Tx than you can.

Jan. 21, 2017 | 9:46 a.m.

I wouldnt have started with a 3bet pre. I think folding is better here as its so hard to win if someone has Axxxsuited or even better AAxx.

Jan. 20, 2017 | 1:34 p.m.

I only x/call. YOu fold out worse, give opportunity for backraises etc.

Jan. 19, 2017 | 10:10 p.m.

I meant SB

Jan. 19, 2017 | 10:09 p.m.

Co has AAxx 95% of the time.

I dont call preflop cold for 9bb. Just too little reward and too much risk having to play OOP. Fold flop agaunst 2 players. It is likely someone has a k or better. Turn is a must call. River still fold.

Comment | Disharmonist commented on self-reflection 2

FLop bet is semi pointless. Qx will call, flushdraws will call, but there is a bunch of hands that will fold that are way behind and any x is way ahead. Easy bet /call OTT tough.

If you turn a selflearning AI that has a set goal, it wont stop calculating and learning until the goal is completly fullfilled. In this case, it probably calculates all possible permutations of boards, ranges and lines.

OP asked on a scale from 1 to 10

Jan. 18, 2017 | 11:05 p.m.

Winning 4.3 bb /100bb is more than solid.

No matter how you interpret the data, it can be said that there is at least a tendency that the bot is better than the humans. I d say lets see how the entire thing turns out and then judge. Players will probibably present the final outcome than the researchers and there will always be room for discussion and interpretation.

He never does, obviously :D

Jan. 16, 2017 | 7:56 p.m.

I am double suited, I dont need an ace to make a hand = Allin-Preflop. Even worse in lower stakes.

Jan. 15, 2017 | 12:25 p.m.

Are the hands mirrorerd or something or is this just coincidence?

Jan. 15, 2017 | 10:11 a.m.

But back to the AIs play; I also agree What hands should be raise OTF theoretically that isnt a Ten, a combo draw or the A or K high flushdraw. I guess not that many if any at all. At least the bot picks up a double gutter OTT and usually has more T x in his range given preflop action.

Jan. 14, 2017 | 6:17 p.m.

Yeah, but getting called by K9 off pre suggests that you probably only fold out weak hands that you block. And you can and should fold the very bottom of your range against raises. Just bc you cannot call doesnt mean that you should raise in any frequency. I do understand the strategy behind, but reversly you would make therefore 3betting 80% of your range or so profitable with this justification which cannot be a good plan long run wise.

Anything that can flop 2card starightflushdraws or sets.
