32:00 KT98, KTJ9 I think the proximity to the 7 matters a lot also (blocking the 7 a bit), that's why they are stabbing despite that they block QQ,JJ, TT

19:09 8863ss I assume we openraised. Isn't this a hand that is more suited for a cbet? OFC from the lighter ones, but we are not too happy checking back, can't turn much, especially stuff that can stand the heat, but we have a pair blocker and str8 blockers on the flop to cbet.

32:44 can we go on 554r flop with a 1/3 pot sized stab? He is not gonna c/r us almost ever, he has some hands he folds right away (AKQx, KQT9, etc) that has reasonable amount of equity vs us. On the turn, we can still opt to chb (on a K for ex) , and so we see turn/river for a cheap price, and with some fold equity. Or we can choose to barrel off turn and potentially river (now with increased sizing) and put his overpairs in a tough decision, as the runout will often become scary

47:30 Is checking back KK on A65r still a good idea vs a very aggressive player, who will (possibly) bet flop and turn river regardless of his hand? I mean Kirk seemed a player, who could easily do that, especially on str8 completing cards, and KK will not be able to stand the heat on 2 streets, thus cbetting is just preventing Kirk doing that.

Generally vs very aggressive, very loose (often recreational) players what should be our best starategy with such marginal hands? Chb and have it to fold or bet and prevent him from taking the initiative

33:35 considering that every draw got there on the river from str8s to flushes, we will have no bluffs in our range, therefore he will not be able to call us with anything worse

April 23, 2018 | 4:37 p.m.

Can we cbet this flop with 1/3 with basically full range HU? As this is So dry and irrelevant str8draws are out given pfr ranges

April 10, 2018 | 7:15 p.m.

14:48 isn't it better to raise the flop? I often get into spots like these on the turn too, where I have perfect blockers and EQ, and still be too shy to shove.

Post | Ephedrine10 posted in PLO: HU vs very aggro fish

Poker Stars, $1/$2 Pot Limit Omaha Cash, 2 Players

Poker Tools by CardRunners - Hand Details

BB: $324.62 (162.3 bb)

Hero (SB): $205.41 (102.7 bb)

Preflop: Hero is SB with 7 4 T 9

Hero raises to $6, BB raises to $18, Hero calls $12

Flop: ($36) A J 3 (2 players)

BB bets $22, Hero calls $22

Turn: ($80) 6 (2 players)

BB bets $67, Hero folds

Opponent 3 bets around 30%. He is definetely bad. Seen him 3 bet hands like A245sss. He's also very aggro postflop, and uses big sizings eveywhere (so for example on KK7r he cbets close to pot in a 3bp). In gereral vs a player ho bets and barrels everything what should we do? I was planning on raise the turn, but normally it would be a fold agaist anyone competent. But I feel I'm getting run over because I let him . Calling doesnt seem a good option, as i have 25% if my FD is live, and if not then im close to drawing dead. Maybe float the turn and bluff rivers? Also risky vs a rec player. Or just fold the flop as my hand will not be able to stand mult street pressure (even when i hit my flush I can loose, and hitting my backdoors is not enough if he pots the turn)

Dec. 2, 2017 | 1:17 p.m.

Cbet bigger, and 3 bet on the flop, you dont want the action to freeze on a 8 for ex. He rarely raise folds on this drawheavy flop

Sept. 23, 2017 | 7:52 a.m.

A little bit off: is the field at Ipoker so weak that ppl play 60-70 vpip at plo 200? Is it worth takiing a look at it instead of stars?

Comment | Ephedrine10 commented on Going to Las Vegas

Hey! I have been there this summer the wsop. Aria and the Rio wsop were the 2 main places for plo. The Rio wsop field was considerably weaker then the one in Aria. There were More tables as well to choose from. The problem is there is only action at Aria Now, So if you can, ii suggest u going for the next wsop, Thats the most profitable period. Ofc if you Wanna go Now, there is Aria and even the regs wouldnt cause any problem to beat for an online player. There is a mobile app called bravo poker live, that you should download and see What live games are currently going.
Gl at the tables !

Hey! I would like to construct a close to optimal playing strategy against a guy who literally opens 100% from sb, 3 bets 60% , 4 bets 24% and pots every flop, every turn, and almost every river. He is something like 100/98/60 cbet100 (46/46) cbet turn 85% cbet river 78%. He will not fold to raises OTF, seen him call T982ss when i raised JJ5r. Then i checked turn he potted it.

My assumptions are:


  • We should tighten up pre, so raise like no more than 40% of hands (basically hands im willing to get 3 bet with-coz thats gonna happen
    more than half of the time)
  • We should 4 bet pre all AKQxss or better, KKxxss+, all AA, better QQ
  • Limp the next (limp call) possibly around 25% of hands
  • Openfold the worst 35% (I think its reasonable to give up some preflop EQ-considering his postflop strategy) I would not limp hands like
    J863ss like Phil does in his HU videos against opponents who doesnt fold the BB (obv this mainiac doesnt fold 2223r)-

So now that we have a stronger range pre, he will Pot-Pot-Pot into hands that can stand the multi street pressure.


He is the preflop aggressor, almost always, except then we 4 bet him. He will all the flop with hands that call call multiple streets. We cont have ANY bluffing or floating opportunity. We cant bluff raise/semi bluff raise, because he wont fold, so I much rather call with a big draw as he will almost surely potbet when we hit so we have massive implied odds even on a 5 hi flush.
We should raise for value lighter on the river so 2nd str8 or 2nd/3rd nut flush

I'm sure that everyone has met such an opponent at least to soem extent. This is the most maniacal guy i've met in the past 4 years of playing.

How wuld You guys adjust to such an opponent, both pre and post?


Aug. 25, 2017 | 4:26 p.m.

On flush card, we check back and delayed bet River. Thats how u play T hi flush. If He bets, we fold

I doubt you can find a b/f ott with spr 2 with 2pair. This blocks a lot of enemy 2 pairs. With naked AA its More interesting question. And if you are not b/f ing then pot/call for sure. If you bet smalller (like you did) He will have more behind so more hands He can just call turn and have imp odds. Otf u have nutblocker so by not cbetting u loose the ability to rep nut diamonds

May 6, 2017 | 3:48 p.m.

I would give 8 points (out of 10) for 4 betting and 7 points for folding pre. 6 points for calling. You being ip or the 3 bettor being tighter Can shiift things

May 6, 2017 | 2:56 a.m.

For sb I think its a shove even with spr4 . Std on your part

April 28, 2017 | 3:49 p.m.

Is the reason for "it doesnt need protection" that it is behind vs hands that c/c? So against a Jxxx for example

April 28, 2017 | 3:46 p.m.

Or limp it, if you Have hozod postflop skills

April 21, 2017 | 5:10 p.m.


April 21, 2017 | 4:59 p.m.

Yes fold the flop. As played call turn and make a dec on the River. Dont be afraid to call off with 0% eq, as its def better than shoving ip and loosing the ability to make a perfect decision OTR. Fold on flush,K for sure, call if improved obviously. You likely get free sd and save money on a spade vs KK/K8. You might opt to vbet thinly on non spade 9,7 for ex.

April 12, 2017 | 4:56 p.m.

Wp! I would play the same way. U are at the bott of your range. He will very rarely bluff cr here,

March 24, 2017 | 3:56 p.m.

Even tho this board hits bb the most. You have an extremely strong hand that must be cbet here and happy stackoff against the short. Sb shouldnt have hit this at all.

March 21, 2017 | 8:21 p.m.

Easy pot call w this spr

March 21, 2017 | 8:16 p.m.

Próbably cant fold this otf for half pot. You will be way overfolding. Sometimes they are one and Done and u get to sd

March 21, 2017 | 8:12 p.m.

What hands raise your donk ip when you donk into 2 people? Only 99 you crush but you stack it anyway. The rest are combohands that are flipping against you. I prefer a c/r but what you say makes sense too. I might delay my c/r to the turn w 99/33/q9 but not topset. You hate to loose action on board changing card vs q9+.

March 4, 2017 | 9:46 a.m.

Pot the turn or dont bet at all. Pre fold. Or fold to the 3bet.

March 4, 2017 | 9:38 a.m.

I d bet this turn very often with this hand included. Exploitatively there are some overaggro guys who float flop too light and when turn goes check chck they bluff a lot then this Line may be More +ev

March 3, 2017 | 3:48 p.m.

Comment | Ephedrine10 commented on .

You are crused more by hands that goes allin with you (aj+, A+fd) than how much equity you push against the hands that are calling your bet, and how much equity you make them fold (protection). 4way its a clear check
