Post | maxpower posted in NLHE: value bluff ratios

i made an excel sheet to fill in while i'm playing. i found something like it in a post here somewhere. just wondering if what i'm trying to do even makes sense . i want to try to get my bets balanced between bluffs and value. only been filling it in for 1 1/2 pot bets and 2x pot bets so far.

i only fill it in when i can have the nuts and my opponent cant. or when its very close to this situation. i ignore bets made against fish as i'm looking to exploit much more then. looks like i'm pretty unbalanced from my results so far. except for 2x pot on the river. is that how it should look to be balanced yeah?

what sort of ratio should i be looking for on the turn? if i used nut hands and bluffs with v low equity?

i only play a couple of tables so its easy for me to keep track of. hoping this makes sense so far. just wondering what else i need to think of to make this useful (if it can be) or what i've missed out in my thinking to make it work

i would of folded it pre and concentrated on other hands

May 28, 2015 | 2:48 p.m.

i would try to avoid 3b that hand at those stakes. unless he is v high fold to 3b. river is prob a fold. usualy againt a better 2 pair or flush there. without reads i fold. but sometimes a call could be made if u have previous info on his river donks and bet river won at showdown % etc. i would look at bet river w$sd for the 1/2 pot sizing too

Post | maxpower posted in NLHE: rakeback for ongame

was wondering which are the best sites to sign up with to get rakeback for ongame and what sort of percentage back is competitive. i play 30000 hands a month so i dont seem to ever get much back from rakeraces or if i do its only 10 or 20 a month will my current deal. i get a bones from my site each month i work towards but it still doesnt seem to be much. if someone could point me towards some deals i could check out would be great. thanks

i like the 3b pre. would of def 3b myself. to raise the turn u need to know he is on a v weak range. someone who never fold to 3b for example. i dont like the turn raise otherwise

May 12, 2015 | 9:04 a.m.

no way i would of cbet the river. would cbet the turn sometimes if he has high fold % but more often than not im prob giving up. especial against a tight range. if he is folding 75% u make the money pre so a check back on the flop is ok too.

Comment | maxpower commented on JJ utg vs mp

if u feel they will be bluffing then you have a good check call line to take. have showdown and can improve. as played i would check call the turn too

Comment | maxpower commented on call river with TPTK?

i missred the action. ignore everything i said. ithought he was donking the river. i now think its a fold.

April 27, 2015 | 10:52 p.m.

guessing bb would have to call some of his 9s at least.

April 27, 2015 | 3:31 p.m.

i would value A9. that a mistake?

April 27, 2015 | 3:29 p.m.

not sure about turn , depends how wide i called pre

April 27, 2015 | 12:59 a.m.

i think im calling turn but an easy river fold. so many better hands in our range by the river you can call with.

April 27, 2015 | 12:16 a.m.

Comment | maxpower commented on call river with TPTK?

if you can beat some of the value hands he does this with then it does make a good case to call. AQ etc. he does hit the trips with some gutters he called with but you only have to be good 30% of the time here. longer into the game you would prob know

April 26, 2015 | 11:13 p.m.

also its got set value 3 way. and if the opener 4b then u can ditch it and be fine

April 26, 2015 | 11:05 p.m.

its tricky. v player dependant. prob not losing much folding if u expect btn to be strong. i look at the fold to 3b of the opener to see if he is a target for 3b bluffs. if anything i would flat over 4b then. but u can ditch it pre. its better than getting involved and folding later worried about aces. that would be bigger mistake

April 26, 2015 | 11:04 p.m.

i would of played exactly the same and be happy to call. against this player i would be 3b light for value. i would also have hands that i called flop with in my range that i could fold here, but not QQ

Comment | maxpower commented on call river with TPTK?

i liked the big bet on the flop. with no more info im calling. with reads you will know if it is allways value

April 26, 2015 | 10:46 p.m.

an easy call for me. i wouldnt even consider anthing else. its a stong hand
