Sry for hijacking the rplys here... but I didn't play on Microgaming for a long time. wondering how is it with tracking hh/results? I know there were anon tables that had no hh. What about the rest? Any newer sw supporting tracking now (H2N or HM3)? Thanks!

But point 3. and 4. are the main reason I posted this hand.
Mainly my conclusions comes from my personal experience and I obv don't have huge sample to prove this but I cannot agree with those two points. By what I am seeing small stakes pools across are waaaay to passive, which puts majority of hands from #3 into a xc range and there is rarely shoving for protection hapening with hands from #4 again more passive bluffcatching.
So what would be your adjustment to that?

Forgot to ask if you would change anything after 50k hands in 'Regular' Population exploits 10NL ZOOM section?

Amazing! Everything was so nicely structured and executed rly well. You gave me huge inspiration to take similar action in my own game (-mass tabling). Rly loved it from post #1 till the end.
Congrats again, hope you do similar challenges as you move up the stakes! Cheers & GL!

60h on the villain, reg 25/20 10%(21) 3b. BU rfi 33%(3).
F: flop looks like the one i am doing a lot of betting for a small size. I have decent blockers to his J combos, and other two cards don't connect too much with his defending range. We can apply much pressure on T and R cards vs his middle pp calling.
T: turning tp, which means I am continuing to barrel with my hand for value.
R: I don't know what to do on this river. He has some backdoor flushes like JT, JK, J9 that beat me. Besides that he has some hands like A2s, A4s probably and some Jx to bluffcatch with. I need him to call very few worse hands. I also think he turns very little hands into bluff.
Tnhx for input.

Sup! I'm interested :)

Btw I dunno how, but your odds oracle is showing 35% EQ vs a strong AA range but that is wrong. You actually don't get direct preflop odds - it is usually between 29-33%. Your exact hand has 31%. Smth like AKJQss has only 29%. So take caution with ss Axxx hands.

You didn't use the right syntax.
K+ means all one pair K and better (TP, twopair, sets etc etc). Ass means any nfd hand (which is rly questionable)
I gave him flop cbetting range of every top pair and better (altho this is questionable), Qfd+ and oesd+ and wrap+.
For stackoff range I gave him toptwo+, TP with fd, nfd with any pair and I even gave him a wrap which is highly unlikely and we still fall short with needed EQ. So we cannot go broke ott.
As played I think we have a very easy fold on the flop. Our hand is very weak, we have no significant future blockers and no nut outs.

Cool, so then you know that mp should be 3b at least 25% for you to come to a slight EQ push preflop. And like mentioned before, rake plays significant roll at these stakes and diminishes slight +EV moves all of the time.

UTG 86/47 wit 60% EP rfi, he gets 3b by a reg that is surely 3b him a bit wider I gave him aprox 8% 3b ip.
F: spr is 0.6 we should have around 26-27% EQ to stackoff. Ingame I thought we have that.
Just want to check if I did an okay pj analysis.
I use only 50% rfi for whale, and 8% 3bip for reg. I have them going to the flop with 100% of their pf range.
Otf, I set up ranges that stack off:
I intentionally set up ranges a bit tighter. I am sure whale stacks off wider (at least KK also).
And we have 28% EQ vs that range. There surely is a margin for error somewhere. So it seems we are stacking with this hand otf?

Villain 37/18 4% 3b.
P:might be a bit loosish, CO doesn't 3b too much, BB overfolds to steal a bunch
F: std call with nfd
T: his T x range probably consists of some air but mostly of top pair AA kind of hands. I think I should bet probably halfpot here and set up river shove on certain runouts that overall favour my range or improve my hand. In game I obv fail to do so.
R: I am very low in my range, I think villain would bet his trips by now. I choose large sizing but in retrospect that makes little sense. I think halfpot to 2/3 should do.
-Would bet ott and like I said shove on decent rivers be an optimal line here?
-As played is there merit to try to bluff villain off AA here?
Overall I think I butchered this hand as well as I could :P

why is betting this flop a no brainer?

You are right, he should miss decent amount with his frq's. Did a quick RD in pj:
A)Q4+ = 13%
B)hh,AKJ+,KJ9+,KJ = 36%
C)* = 51%
This is just for quick reference.
About the second quote I don't know if you misread it or it was just miss quoted but I DIDN'T think we are doing well vs their gii range. We are gii vs a range of QT+ and rly strong draws that have decent EQ vs our hand.
So if we have decent FE vs UTG and SB range is very wide and weak(but player is passive and stationy) why am I choosing a large size otf? Doesn't that have an effect of "isolating" myself vs top of their ranges?
So right now flop check makes sense. Don't know how much we can utilize our bluff blockers also - Kh, two A, on certain board runouts. Would that skew the decision into bluffing?
