I did not want to spend to much time thinking on this hand cause it's really a 1 in a million situation. The thing is that I don't know how to solve this and how it affects the strategy overall once I know in 2 hands I'd win 10BI. I can make assumptions that my bubble factor boost up so equities should be higher for any action. But it also affect the psicology in play, at the end we are just human and this is a 50€ tournament. So I guess CO limp less than normal cause he can apply TON of pressure.

In general I don't even know if I can x/r with a hand that's not set equitywise for value. I love the fact that I checked back pre and I think my flop play is not -$EV overall, but I guess other options generate more EV like the flop call, I wrote here to get help on how to use a heuristic way to solve it

BB: 596,225 (Hero)

Preflop (37,500) Hero is BB with Q K
2 folds, MP calls 25,000, 2 folds, SB calls 12,500, Hero checks
General Infos on players:
MP is a crusher, he was opening quite wide and this was his first limp of the FT (before he was also shorter)
SB is a fish that shove any good hands he had preflop, for example against CO open he shoved 88 55bb. Postflop fast play value hands with huge sizes otherwise he was pretty passive.
Flop (96,875) 3 K 8
SB checks, Hero checks, MP bets 47,500, SB calls 47,500, Hero raises to 568,100 and is all in, MP raises to 1,291,617 and is all in, SB folds
My thought were:
"In this situation I should continue just with super top equity hands cause the bubble factor in play and my range play out mostly folding and I think I would have just a super tiny x/s range without calling (or super small)"

Hi Saulty,

I'm a statistic student and I love softwares, I studied 6years cash game and climbed up to NL400.
I spent the last 4 months studying 8h a week MTT with Monkersolver, Piosolver and Holdem resource. I've spent approx 1k hours on Pio for cash so I'm super confident with that.
I'd like to find a study group that fit my ambitions.
I've got a mathematical / scientifical way of working.
I don't have plenty of time cause I study + coaching but as I said I've got 8 to 12hours a week for that.
Skype, Discord 24/7 pretty much cause I work with them.

After few days I got complete and well organised solutions

April 23, 2018 | 4:14 p.m.

I'v paid for 2.5x+ 3x complete pack and I received just the 2.5x one. 5 days without replying to my e-mail. Solutions also don't work on Monker free and the pio's are not complete.

Comment | Federico Mazzini commented on River shove

If BTN folds 55%+ why would you like to have all A5s in 3betting?
I think your 3betting against high % folds has more EV as polarized.
If you want a 5b/jam bluff you can just add some % of Axs or 77,66 imo.

Sept. 18, 2015 | 5:46 a.m.

It depends on what you think oppenent would do with 7xss and J7s.
If he would x/r with 7xss close to 100% most exploitable play would be call >K7sx, so K7sx+,FD, overpair+bdfd and 2P+.
If he x/r it 50%7xss just call any FD, J7,22 and 3bet big JJ,77.
If he does not, just call FD with 7xss or FD with bdsd or Fd+GS,22 and 3bet big 77 and JJ.

Btw you'r printing money against those type of regular and limit betting high frequencies and little sizes on flop, then, you should arrange your range based on his continuing but normally I would defend a lot xb on turn ;)

Sept. 7, 2015 | 5:01 p.m.

After his xb and also donkbet and be able to bet/call enough on card that helps our range a lot. I also use to have a really small 3betting after my donkbet.
By the way is pokerstars.it

ty so much :)

I thought turning 99 into a bluff would have more EV than trying to x it down. I don't think I can get exploited if I turn a hand like this into a bluff. I have a linear range, for that reason I don't know how many worst hands I have.
What about repping I have some % of TP,2ndpair, pair+draw.
On the river I would have some flushes,Tx, AA,JJ played in that way.

I play NL100. I think you guys should just lead out more on turn and x/r a bit more on every boards.
If you don't have enough time to work on it, Disharmonist quote win in my opinion.

Flop ($20.00) A J 8
Hero checks, CO checks
I think this board hit pretty well both ranges. I think I should not cbet it really aggressively. I don't think I can also bet small on this texture and ranges.
So I decided to x/c. This is probably the bottom of my x/c range.
Do you x/f it?
Turn ($20.00) A J 8 7
Hero bets $11.72, CO calls $11.72
He calls stub turn 55. I don't know his raising.
Here I decided to stub and bet even river on every river a part when pairs 8 and 77 cause I think I don't have eough SDV and he has a lot of hands that I beat that can float turn+river.
Do you x/f-x/c or bet it?
River ($43.44) A J 8 7 9
Hero checks, CO bets $26.85, Hero folds
I don't know how aggressive he is on rivers like this one. I folded cause I think the field are not bluffing enough.
What hands should he has to bluff to let me be able to call?
Thanks a lot

Post | Federico Mazzini posted in Chatter: I need a coach :)

Hi guys,

I'm 23years old from Italy. I play NL50 right now but I played NL200. I'v always won at any level I played but I would like to improve faster.
I'm looking for a competitive coach that would follow me constantly.
I love the theorical and mathematical part of the game and I'm an hard worker, well motivated and auto-critical guy.

The budget I would like to spend is between 800€-1.5k€ at the start with the possibilities to pay more and keep working togheter.

I would like someone that help me a lot on exploiting, cause I'v always studied balanced plays neglecting the most important parts for micros.
I hope someone have some advices.
Thanks a lot everyone

I suppose he meant the EV of checking back when we fold always except on A,K turn.

We are 50-50 but I would have all sets and 2P and he's not and also I would have all overpair and he's not. So I would cbet around 60% here. So I would bet some 8x and I should do so, I think, cause he was not defending by x/r a lot.

That's what I would xb on the flop: http://gyazo.com/9b89975a0013b008d964a9c03cb65830

Turn ($2.50) 9 4 8 Q
SB bets $1.77, Hero calls $1.77
I do not have a raising range on this card cause he has all JT,Q9,Q8 sets and I don't.

I would call with: http://gyazo.com/998e4b075448fe1b44d69c82a220c4df

River ($6.04) 9 4 8 Q 6
SB bets $4.85, Hero folds
What Hands should I bluff on the river?
I would have just 5 combos of Axh (and all 5 have at least a pair) so if I would raise with flushes and sets wich are 16 combos
What are the other 3 combos you choose here? Would ou bluff the Axh with pair (A8-9) or just bluffcatch?
Final Pot SB wins $5.71
Rake is $0.33

Nice vid sir.  I have got some question about hands: 

min. 5.47--->  Did he have to defends with K4s on top right? What's a good defending range there? 

min 16.20 ---> the hand with T7 I would have done pot size to polarize our range cause I'v seen most of Villains calling more when I pot than when I value bet.

min. 17.48 ---> AQ hand, is that a r/c or r/f

min. 24.25 ---> how much should be the size on the turn with AA? 

Ty so much

Player from UTG opens and c/c 2street OOP and then he leads out, in 3way pot, 2/3pot.

He has a lot of Axhx in his range and when he bet out I don't expect to much bluff or better, I don't think in a spots like this (even with 50x probably fish on CO) & a field like thise one UTG can bluff enough to make our play profitable.

What was his range in your head? 

Ty so much for your vid!

What kind of hands may we bluff for balancing on the river?
