The bet size on the excel sheet is listed as 44% yet you are verbalizing it as 2/3. This is very confusing. Did you run pio sims for 44% or 66%?

"Blockers more generally are something I think ppl over-focus on" Can you give a brief example of this?

Brilliant, honest, brutal. As one of the seemingly many stagnant old timers plugging away at the same limits day in day out, I feel inspired to go out and take on new challenges.

Do you ever implement a limping strategy preflop? What would be the deciding factors if you did? How would you design a range vs a tough opponent?

You talked about his high cbet and wanting more locked down boards to cr. Wasn't KQKr a perfect example to start with? You had not cr him the whole match at this point. (You check folded 8 high)

KJ76ss to the J is in PJ FI50. Seems like a snap defend against someone so straightforward.

Is this preflop call standard?

At 18.00 Phil. How much does the 6 blocker account for your decision to raise the turn? Would you do it without a straight blocker?

I'm having trouble in 3 bet pots in spots like these. Villain was a fish opening 100% buttons mostly min raising but sometimes potting. Its only 37 hands in so I don't have detailed reads on his flop strategies here. Is my cbet standard or can I check call with backdoor equity? I don't want to be raised on the flop right? Whats my play on the turn now that he flats?

I didn't say he would jam his draws. He is passive so he flats the draws. It's an easy pot on the flop if he jams his entire range. I'm asking how I play vs someone who flats draws here and say an offsuit J peels off and he checks basically.

Villain was pretty passive and this was his first check raise in 125 hands or so. I expect his range to be weighted to KKXX and huge draws. I'm not sure how he reacts to a reraise with the drawy part of his range. He probably repots all in with KKXX and calls with his wrap+fd's. He will probably play his turned hands very straightforwardly by potting out but I'm not sure. Would it be more profitable to wait for a brick turn here rather than risk jamming all in when he's made a straight and played it deceptively?

Also what format do I copy hand histories in hem to clipboard to convert them here?

Is preflop and flop ok? I was tempted to fold flop but thought I'd be throwing away too much equity. Turn standard?

I think with a numbering system I could have followed the action. With both mouse the same its very hard to see where you were pointing.

Thanks Lenny. Maybe limp playable hands that contain 2 wheels etc? I'm starting to learn by experience that wheel cards play terribly in plo.

Today I played a maniac that was playing an 80+ vpip oop with most of that as a 3 bet. I was minraising most hands and not folding to 3 bets and only open folding junk preflop. I would limp high polarity hands like KK72r and pot hands I would like to 4 bet as he didn't adjust. Pretty standard?

Phil what is your raise size here? Is it static for every stack size?
