Can't stack off in a limped in pot with this holding, no. Chances are if someone wants to go broke with an SPR of 30 they have top set. You are getting 1.75:1 to see the turn and have 11 nut outs. We know 45 cards so you are 34:11 or basically 3:1 against turning the nuts. I don't hate a call because we do have some hidden outs and there is a very good chance we go to the turn three way, in which case we will be getting almost enough pot odds and have some pretty good implied odds, but I'm leaning towards folding the flop.

Comment | plolearnerguy commented on 9987 ds in HJ

What % of hands do you think we should be opening from the HJ? I guessed 16%, but I would be curious to know your answer.

Comment | plolearnerguy commented on Call/Fold/Raise?

this is too loose an iso pre. I don't think you have a choice but to raise pot on the flop with this hand.

Is 9987 ds in the HJ a profitable open?

i think u open too frequently from the sb

You have 12 nut outs. BB is representing 67 so there is a good chance the board pairing hearts are good against him. Given that SB is passive the chance that he has a hand to reraise, that is to say 67, is higher than normal. You are apathetic to stacking off three way, assuming you put them both on 67 (you should have around 33% equity in this scenario).

The REG almost certainly has the nuts to raise such a loose passive opponent.

bet them both someone will probably peel with one pair anyway

I like a call. We are in position and should be able to make pretty good river decisions.

Flop is a clear fold.

Oct. 3, 2017 | 6:36 p.m.

Raising the river was very foolish, calling or folding are both a lot better. You should have bet the flop small. Betting the turn was okay, but you should have bet smaller and folded to the check raise.

You will lose a lot of money if you keep trying to bluff people off 2 pair +.

Interestingly enough PPT ranks this hand only in the 19th percentile; it is important to play pretty snug UTG.

Sept. 17, 2017 | 7:29 a.m.

pot odds are 2.5:1, chances of filling up on the river are around 3 to 3.5:1 against but frankly I'm never too enthused about drawing to an underfull in the first place

You have three opponents but I think checking the flop is the better play.

Sept. 14, 2017 | 2:58 p.m.

Keep raising the flop.

Sept. 13, 2017 | 1:23 p.m.

i think the main thing is to just start coming over the top of him more often both pre and post. you don't want to fall into the mistake of getting into a defensive shell and just calling. that being said on lockdown boards it is often a good idea to just call this type of opponent down with nut or near nut holdings, such as flopped ace or king or queen high flush or three of a kind on a 994 flop. i would also play a bit tighter pre than op has suggested. you don't have to worry about playing too tight for the ante vs this opponent because the much larger pot size will more than make up for your conservative approach.

Sept. 12, 2017 | 5:43 p.m.

I'm not convinced villain would check back the turn with a set or aces up. While I do think folding is a reasonable play, I don't mind calling with the intent of folding to a river bet unimproved either, parlaying both your chances to improve and your chances of presently having the best hand into making a call.

Comment | plolearnerguy commented on starting hands

Strong hands are also situational. So for example KK67 ds is a strong hand, but against an opponent that is very likely to have aces, it is a weak hand. Same with AQJT one suit. 8754 is a marginal hand but you would much rather have it against aces than either of those hands.

Given that you have 32% equity against 99 because of your double gutty it is going to be pretty tough to get away from this one, although you really have to wonder what other hands a reg is going to want to stack off here with an SPR of 25. Incidentally villain's flop raise is just a 2-bet. There are a lot more playable combos of 99 than 33 as well. Anyway I am virtually certain I play it the same way as you.

You will find softer games on Ignition and the Chico network, both of which serve NY residents AFAIK. But even if you are playing on ACR that doesn't mean you have to play at tables with no fish. You can always quit the game if there are no fish.

Aug. 23, 2017 | 3:34 p.m.

No it was fine, although you can also raise the flop. More importantly you shouldn't have been playing in this game in the first place because there are no fish.

Just wondering if anyone here is beating PLO 10 and / or PLO 25 on Stars?

Aug. 20, 2017 | 4:36 a.m.

rip it in on the flop yolo

Comment | plolearnerguy commented on starting hands

AT64 ds is pretty marginal. You could open it on the button to be sure or complete in the sb after a couple of loose limpers but you don't want to be opening this hand UTG in a six max game. In general you want high cards, hands that have four cards working together and suited or double suitedness is a nice plus as well.

Aug. 17, 2017 | 1:25 a.m.

fold pre and the turn imo

Aug. 16, 2017 | 8:05 p.m.

given your read that he is a wild man I think the flop is a definite must raise. if he can have a draw or weak hand then we really must get the money in immediately.

Aug. 16, 2017 | 9:33 a.m.

fold pre. saying nothing is the best way to get her to pass, if you say anything it will make her suspicious you are bluffing.
