What does a "decent" coach take compared to the really good ones? I would imagine something like 200-1k$`?

Thank you, makes alot of sense. Definitely been the most high variance player i've played

It's a mobile app ran by a pokerclub, which means that people don't need to deposit money right away and games get really bloody

Hi, looking if someone have any experience in this (mostly looking for typical adjustments against this spesific villain)

The game: 6$/12$ buy in is from 1200 to 5k usually starting with 5k, This match aswell
-No limps allowed, minraises either
- Villain is raising 100% otb, (even trips as he doesn't look at his cards)
- 3betting something around 15-40% depends on his mood i guess

Notes so far after 400hands
- Seen him 3bet AJ23ddd, 4bet KJJ2ds
- Cbets close to 100% in every spot both singleraised and 3bet pots
- Goes for 2streets (could go 3) with, Straight on monotone flop (both single and 3bpot)
- barrels KQ24 on K73Tss for value it seems
- Mostly seems to be completing river with no blockers at all

  • What is a reasonable defending % in bb? Would imagine it should be defended alot tighter than 80-90%, Rake is 3% CAP 3$

Any other inputs/things to consider in situations like this?

Think this is a standard lead to put CO in a tough spot and potentially make BU fold.

Once played this way there is no merit to call BU pot bet other than occasionally lose value when you hit, and you invite CO in which you don't want with this hand

I've been there and the games are really soft, so if you're a decent player you should have no problem beating the games. 5% rake is standard live aswell
Tried alot different casinos in london and find victoria to be alot better than the others

Looking at my range if i were to use just this combo of KK i would have to much air and he has a profit calling his entire B/c range OTT.
Without KK, i have 25% BUT
This doesn't mean that C/r turn can't be an auto profit, What kind's of hand do you think he betfolds turn with?

July 14, 2017 | 7:02 p.m.

So what you're saying is that exploits isn't profitable longrun?

July 14, 2017 | 6:23 p.m.

My range is def extremely narrow and is mostly a pickoff/exploit.
My probe turn bet will be pretty unpolarised and c/r alot more polarised if that makes sense. So ithink my turn c/r should look something like this, 24+:dd, 24+:53+,Kdd+:!53+,33+:dd
Chose my valuehands for c/r to be hands that doesn't need as much protection and by that way it's also easier to have a consistent range.

I don't think i need to complete river every single time i c/r, but if i were to chose a hand to complete this would be it IMO. Not blocking any pairs or diamonds i think he's going to have a looser calling range OTT and river shove might be profitable, will have to take a closer look in pokerjuice.

July 13, 2017 | 3:08 p.m.
Def agree that 53 is too loose and he probably doesn't call with that, Just wanted to start somewhere and take it from there :)
Also think all 3+:dd calls turn, 35+:67+

Can't really see a big problem in being raised here in a high spr pot. you will realize equity and have great implied odds.
I also agree with betting the turn, just don't think you have to bet bigger to put pressure as his wraps can't really call profitable. So better smaller with range makes alot more sense

First off all i would lead out here almost always, this being a 7way pot no one will stab light at this pot so you get more value out of leading.
Btn in this spot should have a really strong range, based on his sizing he might not even bet 52.
So you having a nitty image does not help at all when he calls the turn, so i think he has a boat here almost always. So i don't like shoving river.

What i would do OTT, is bet something like 150-190 into 570 and give up river. Think that makes alot more sense

Post | Bennyvo posted in PLO: Looking for study partners

Hi, looking for some study partners so i can get pushed a bit more into putting in the hours needed!

Sharing handhistories, live sweating, going into details in all different spots etc.
Mostly when going through spots i'm trying to find the most GTO approach and not the easiest +ev line

Currently playing 1/2 - 3/6 with some occasionall 5/10 shots.

Also have a great coach but not able to spend as much time as i need with him.

Send me a message if ur interested and we'll talk from skype :)

Sorry for the late respond, I think that on this turn he's going to barrel very light as i need to fold most of my Q and 7x that floats the flop. He's value hands OTT is A7+ ithink. KK with clubs he's very likely to check.
So i ran it in pokerjuice, I would imagine that he cbets he's whole range on this flop. Turn range can be dicsussed. I also think that a reg at this stake will be worried about balance and shove most of his air OTR.

June 7, 2017 | 1:54 p.m.

Thanks guys, great input :) I've come to the conclusion that folding seems alot better.

June 4, 2017 | 4:32 p.m.

Don't think it makes sense to raise this flop no, only hand i'm trying to make him fold is a non pair hand basically which will almost always give up OTT.
With my AK without clubs i think i block enough of his valuerange to make this a pretty clear call. Someone might disagree, happy for input.

We are not pushing any equity with this hand against his 3bet range, question is if we can make him fold enough to make 4bet profitable, probably not but i'm not sure.

May 5, 2017 | 4:21 p.m.

Does seem correct but felt too tight, Would btn being deeper make this a call?

Need 36% and this is a very standard call when he is this short

I'm still a little bit confused on how to do this preflop even if i just saw a youtube video on how to use this postflop.

No reads and you fold? i'm never ever folding there
Turn lead is a consideration but i don't like it, facing a raise you have to fold out alot of equity and river will be kinda hard to play. I also don't like leading river as you don't block any hearts and block top pair and with 3diamonds you block most of his BC range.
If you checkraise river and he shoves i fold alot easier.

Feb. 21, 2017 | 5:50 p.m.

My first tought was that this guy is a major fish and won't fold anything, but based on his stats his probably a little bit competent. If you almost think you can exclude his strongest range like sets, and maybe his wraps. Then you're standing left with his weak 2pairs and his bluffs with equity. So i say raise all day, the problem by calling as you said that you will probably be overfolding the river.

Feb. 13, 2017 | 5:21 p.m.

Hey, Like the way you explain things and have enjoyed your earlier videos. Not sure if i like that you mix in 2 very different games in one video, think this should be a 2series part (With one HU and one tournament)

Also think that by playing 1 or 2 regular hu tables it goes a little bit too slow and it goes more time into preflop and the smaller pots, Not that preflop is not important but i think you have made enough videos discussing that.
So i would recommend recording a HU zoom video on PS, yeah the rake is huge but i think it's good for the video. You can teach some explotive plays on the stakes with the most entrants etc, and it goes more time into 3bet pots etc..
