I was messing around with it on pokerstove and even only giving a few fours and giving pocket 8s, I have a hard time giving us enough equity without a plenty hearts in villain's range. It comes down to that.

You know better than us, but I call against my maniacs loosey gooseys unless I have a timing tell and fold against my regulars

I'm having trouble developing ranges for 3betting preflop. I understand conceptually a great deal of what is discussed in Peter Clarke's book, for instance. But when it comes to in game play, I often don't have a feel for where the bottom of my range should really be. I get the sense that I cold-call too much and could be 3- (and 4-betting) a lot more for value.

On the learning path or in the library, are there videos you'd recommend?

22/20 3bet 9.5% fold to 3bet 49%. I have seen him shove jacks in a BTN vs CO raising battle.
His value betting range does not include thin bets on later streets but he will try to take pots early in hands. I honestly don't know how much range thinking he does
He has seen me play for deception once.

27/14 rfi 29% on btn. Fold to 3bet 59%; curiously he only 3bets like 1-2%
AF 2.9
W$SD is still converging but high.
Postflop I have not seen him make thin value bets
I have been getting away with straightforward postflop play and 3.3-3.5x 3bets against him.

Misclick, i didnt notice but thats weird you're right.

7.1% from the button over nearly 4k hands

I think in cash games against these boys this is still a fold. The best I was doing was flipping knowing there was a high chance someone was mucking or calling with blockers.

July 17, 2020 | 7:25 p.m.

The size of it just seems awkward to me. Leaves the SPRs at 2.

Villain is good. 2820 hands. 30/21 9%. 3bet from BTN, AF 1.6. would be aware of position of initial raiser and that I'd be looser against a limper, would squeeze. ALSO: I have suspicion he has a bet sizing tell. This is probably near the top of his range.

(I also put it up top, this is important thanks for reminding me)

July 17, 2020 | 7:21 p.m.

I very much liked your line but there's always the chance you're betting into the very thing you're repping, which just happens.

BTN raises light and is 21/17. Folds to 3b 52% over many hands. I have seen him 4bet fold multiple times.
BB will get it in as light as JJ with me, may also know BTN 4bets light

I would fold in a tournament every time?

Hey they shove KK. That’s what spooks me. I’m not even seeing that.

July 16, 2020 | 10:42 p.m.

(1) It seems like even the thinking regs have tight ranges that's much of what I wanted to confirm. It's about 50/50 of the guys I've looked at opponent by opponent, which is a lot. The splashy recreational players with 3bet percentages of like 2-4% are way tighter of course

(2) I'm 3betting a lot more lately, have some bluffs in my 4bet range, and still running into it, which is why i'm so puzzled

July 16, 2020 | 6:27 p.m.

I asked. They;'re working on a solution already

July 16, 2020 | 6:21 p.m.

I see a wide range of responses to 3bets in my game and try to adapt positionally. Obviously there's no point in bloating the pot with a marginal holding from the BB if they won't fold but there is with something a little tasty on the button. My button three bet stat tends to run a higher than my SB/BB for this reason I think.

July 15, 2020 | 8:17 p.m.

I'm currently looking at what I'm facing when I preflop fourbet or fivebet.

Over 19 hands with between 90-130BB stacks NOT holding aces or ace-king I've faced AA 13 times, INCLUDING 2 times I was sure there was metagame that put other hands in range. I've also folded JJ-QQ 3 times, and after a 4bet or 5bet won uncontested with KK three times.

With AK I've been in 5 bet pots 11 times, run into AA twice and KK twice. I've folded AK 3 times (all 3 multiway), and AA, AK, or KK was involved in each of those hands as well.

With AA I've won 16 and been in 7 that didn't get all-in. The all-ins were QQ x3, KK x2, TTx1, 88x1, AKx7.

I think I can probably start to suspect very tight shoving ranges in my game, but I want to confirm it.

I'd like to confirm this with my WHOLE sample. Does anyone know if I can easily do this?

July 15, 2020 | 8:11 p.m.

Thank you
I'd say the pots are about 50-50 when I get a great table.

Player types. I think there are a few types I've encountered and they don't always differentiate right away

1) Casino reg types. They play like 30-50% of hands and kinda get postflop play and you have to legitimately outplay them postflop. The Baluga theorem really matters because their bets are the goods.

2) Guys who are just giving it away. They call and call preflop until they get TPMK or MPTK (or heaven forbid, the actual goods) and either call it off or jam it with 30BB behind and you just have to snap it off, then they leave, win or lose. Easy.

3) (uncommon) Lagfish playing 50/20. Still easy. Value town to check and call and then bet thin.

4) (Rarely) Maniacs, who find shorthanded games, kind and jam in pot size bets and get away at the first sign of playback. These are kind of tricky for me, especially shorthanded.

The type 1 and 2 have similar stats and sometimes their stack sizes look the same. Type 3 and 4 can take a while to diverge also. Sometimes 2 and 3 can look the same to me too.

July 15, 2020 | 7:40 p.m.

I actually kind of do that. I look away from the screen and put my hand on the table while i'm playing.

I've also thought of learning to use the mouse left handed or buying a touch screen for calling - (please don't take this as a brag, I am older than most posters and I have a job I love, but I love poker and want to get better at it).

As for stats/reads, we just met - so no.

July 15, 2020 | 7:23 p.m.

Villain is good. In my game he is one of 5-6 people who bring air in bets on the river and go for thin value, albeit rarely. I havent seen it in 3b pot but I believe he would be capable.

July 15, 2020 | 7:22 p.m.

Can you walk me through what I'm seeing I'm just getting to know all of these toys from videos. Obviously it says blue - Raise.. but

As for the hands.

This is a dangerous raise without a strong read. Id expect 45 or 33 more than an ace.

Nice hand

By and large monotone boards or like 55J boards are for small pots or freak occurrences - think boat on quads or straight flush on nut flush In the penny stakes ppl will splash around but less and less as you move up
