I check turn for the reason already stated. I guess we can bet turn vs villains that overfold turn with all their PP's

Nice post!

I'm currently looking at my ranges again and at my game in general after having some leaks pointed out.

As far as using gto ranges etc.. How would you advise someone to implement the changes to their game? Like, work on BB vs BTN, SB vs BTN, BTN vs CO.. Essentially working backwards..

April 17, 2022 | 9:32 a.m.

Is this really regs doing this though?

March 17, 2022 | 7:46 p.m.

I don't see regs doing this? Recs do this tons.. I generally raise with a wide range and apply pressure post flop.. I raise most my range and check the garbage..

March 16, 2022 | 6:40 p.m.

I think your line is fine vs this villain, but of course as others have mentioned you can check raise turn mostly and expect calls off a lot worse.

I check flop here mostly. As played turn is a call

The mental game plays such an important role in anyone's progression. I had bad tilt issues a few years ago, but rarely tilt anymore because my knowledge and understanding of the game has gotten better. For me it was not knowing if what I was doing was correct.. Bad beats are part of the game so I don't blink and eye these days, but will get annoyed if I make a mistake

Goes for anyone that wants to talk poker

I don't like the call pre, and opt to 4bet this combo mostly. As played the flop call is fine, you have to be betting this turn and prepared to be betting river too.

I let this go pre flop an high % of the time.

Check back flop and evaluate villains action on the turn. In this spot I would bet turn when villains check checks and expect to take the pot away a decent amount. Depending on Run out and in general we'll have to follow up on the river.

Please use hand convertor

Run bad is whatever.. The rough with the smooth my brother..

Turn is bet for sure. When you call with such combo's you have to be prepared to take aggressive lines the times we don't hit our big hands. In this spot we're going to struggle to win at showdown so our bet will accomplish two things - we either win now, or after betting we hit our equity and can value bet on the river. What's important to note is villain can check call on the turn to bluff catch or allow you to value town yourself, so be fully prepared to make another bet on the river vs the correct villains..

Comment | Claret N Blue commented on HUD? Yes or No?

Purchasing an HUD will be value for money, and generally will pay for itself when you use it correctly and start making money.

I prefer PT4 but there are many options available so I'd suggest you take advantage of the free trials and decide for yourself.

Feb. 28, 2022 | 1:20 p.m.

Flop is a check for me on this texture. When you have cbet and the reg comes along then its time to proceed with caution.

I think you played the rest of the hand fine. The reg isn't betting worse here often enough (if ever) to justify a call vs this sizing.

Feb. 28, 2022 | 1:18 p.m.

I think its important to play a mixed strategy when you are playing your draws, as with any other part of your range. As you move up through the levels the ranges you consruct will have to be balanced too.

There will be plenty of times where the direct odds on offrr are below the requirement for our holding, but you have to factor in any bets on future streets. That being said, a ref will be less likely to pay off when the obviously draws hit, however a rec player looks at his AA and calls on 789T2ss with a flush and straight possible for instance.

I have the fold to raise after flop cbet stat on my HUD, which I use when I decide on which line I'll take. We can take advantage and play aggressively vs regs that are range betting for example.

Feb. 28, 2022 | 1:13 p.m.

I'd like to think the flat is to play vs the fish MW, but its entirely reg dependent I find

Comment | Claret N Blue commented on AKs in 3way

I'd go a touch more pre, maybe more if villains are stations.

Flop - This isn't ideal for us vs two villains OOP. I'd check call. But as played your sizing could be increased.

Turn - The 6s reduces set combos for villains, and we block flush draws, but with both villains calling on the flop I'm leaning towards a check call (evaluate depending on actions) in this spot. I think with your bet sizing here you're basically playing your cards face up imo.

River - check fold

Feb. 25, 2022 | 6:29 p.m.

I fold and don't think twice about it. This is generally a spot that is super underbluffed and is mostly weighted towards value.

I also think you can cbet smaller here - 33% or so

GL sir

Are you going 20bb for 4b?

Do you suggest hero check calls OTR? Vs all sizes?

Welcome back sir.

Dec. 19, 2021 | 6:16 p.m.

Are you calling rivers for instance if 4h came after raising turn? If so vs what sizing?

Comment | Claret N Blue commented on KJo BB vs BU

Hi, please leave results out when you post hands.

I'm fine with check folding here on the river. We don't beat much that villain is betting 3 streets on for value.. Id take a note on his chosen sizing here with a set and see how it differs compared to different portions of his range.

Sept. 15, 2021 | 12:07 p.m.

What would your calling range be vs this villain?
