What about x/r flop ?

Does he fold a lot to 4b after 3betting? If not you're just creating a big pot OOP with speculative hand. I'd rather tighten a bit my openening range and 4bet a linear range

Oct. 13, 2018 | 7:22 a.m.

Turn you want to pick the same sizing that you would have bet with a flush. Given villain's line if you have a flush you'll probably go for thin value', so 50-60% pot should be good imo

Oct. 13, 2018 | 7:08 a.m.

ok noob question here !
How to filter hands when I'm calling a 3B OOP in PT4 ???

Oct. 11, 2018 | 10:17 p.m.

Just bet turn. You're in 4bet pot and villain called flop so he likely have something. So you want to extract max value. As you said villain is unknown so you don't need to be balanced ott

The sample of hand played is too low to see your real accurate winrate even if they're very good numbers.
If you feel ok with your bankroll management just take a shot and you'll make your own opinion about NL100Z ;-)

I wish I could make this kind of fold. I always convice myself that V could have some bluff here and I'm crycalling...

Oct. 5, 2018 | 3:58 p.m.

Comment | ExiL97 commented on set default range?

What I do is that I check how many tables they're playing, if 3-4 zoom table I label them as "potential reg". If they play 1 or 2 tables but not full stacked I label them as "fun player/recreational" until I have enough hand to label them correctly.
Cool think with zoom is that you can get enough information very quickly.

Hope that will help you a bit

Which stats are important if we want to review our database? I find myself in the same spot that Chaoren

Oct. 5, 2018 | 12:25 p.m.

Agreed with frontdoorbackdoor, he hasn't a lot of natural bluffs except fd which we block, (maybe some QJs/KJs but he'd have probably fold to your turn OB). Don't know if 10NL pool is capable to bluff raise with Ac blocker here.
Also he could have check/back Axcc on the flop just trying to realize his equity IP.

Oct. 2, 2018 | 10:39 p.m.

I agree with victorbynite 14% 3bet overall isn't enough information.
what does matter is what % does he 3b MP vs UTG who is supposed to have a strong opening range.
with 14% he could just have been very aggressive 3bet in restealing spots like BU vs CO or SB/BB vs CO/BN

Comment | ExiL97 commented on NL 50 2p in 3way pot

what about x/raising flop ??
OOP in 3way pot I think it would be a good idea to protect our checking range as we'll be check a lot of our range in this spot.

Oct. 2, 2018 | 4:06 p.m.

I agree with frontdoorbackdoor here. I'd have def. x/c turn. You can just see his minsizing as a "checkback" in some way basically. When he minreraise turn its just a fold. Don't know if a fish will bluff enough in this spot.
It's a bit sick that we build the pot for him as he wouldn't have valuebet his hand in a correct way vs us given his min sizing

Oct. 1, 2018 | 3:11 p.m.

I'm checking back flop here. I don't think we'll have 3 street of value here with our hand and I'll just hate to be x/raised in this spot. It's also good to have strong TP in our checking back range. And with the Kc we don't need a lot of protection.
Otr I'd have probably call as he only representing Qx or flush et we do block the flush. You also don't block diamonds for backdoor FD and hands like T9 89 AT.

Oct. 1, 2018 | 11:26 a.m.

Hi guys,

I went to my database and check my BB/100 when I 4bet/called QQ & AKo/AKs when facing 5bs and this is just a disaster. It seems that I run, from the most part, against KK+ & AKs.

Obv it could be variance as my sample size of hands isn't very big but I just feel at 5NLZ & 10NLZ the pool isn't goint to 5bs AKo JJ/QQ enought.

I was thinking to only 4bet KK+ & some A5s 76s as bluff to balance.

What do you guys think about it ?


Sept. 30, 2018 | 9:27 a.m.

Both Snowie & PIO are rigged anyway ^^

Sept. 29, 2018 | 9:35 p.m.

I don't understand why you bet turn. Could you please explain why?

Sept. 29, 2018 | 12:33 p.m.

Why betting small would be fine? Just trying to learn here

Sept. 29, 2018 | 8:58 a.m.

I think if you follow the logic behind your blockbet you have to fold river. I mean a blockbet is meant "to buy" a cheap showdown.
Add to that that at micro/small stakes you don't see that many bluff raise otr.
On the other side his line doesn't make much sense at all except KQ/JTs/76s that he decide to slowplay turn for whatever reason. If BB was a fish maybe he could have call K9s from the BN but that would be kinda loose call.
In the end it depend on how you think BN is capable of turning a hand into bluff otr

Sept. 29, 2018 | 8:47 a.m.

With BN having 10% 3bet I'd 4bet preflop for sure.
I guess we could size a little bit more on the turn once he x/back flop.
On the river he's only rep. a flush which you don't block. I hardly doubt that an average NL10's reg will turn AQ ou AJ into a bluff in this spot.
I guess it would be a good fold as you don't see many river shove bluff at NL10

BN is reg 22/16 over 850hands. 3bet 5% overall (4% 3/69 on BN). F3bet 60%. AF2.
UTG is loose player 37/25, 65 hands tho.
I think AQs is standard squeeze here. I should have squeeze bigger.
Flop ($2.60) 3 J T
Hero checks, BN bets $1.21, Hero raises to $4.05, BN calls $2.84
OK so here how I approached this spot.
This board connect quite a bit BN's 3bet calling range but I think most of his range is made of draws/ pair+draws/2over+draws/GS/backdoors. His value range would be JJ/TT/AJ which we also have in our range.
In game I decided to go for a x/raise to deny his equity. I'd be x/raising QQ+/TT/ probably JJ too even if we do block TP and all of my combos draw as semi bluff.
I think x/raise is better than cbeting because even with let's say a 66%-75% pot size bet BN will realize is equity too easily just by being IP.
Plan was to shove on any river if called.
Turn ($10.70) 3 J T 8
Hero bets $5.63 and is all in, BN calls $5.63
Now I'm sure you guys see what I didn't anticipated.
By x/raising to this size I left myself with a shitty PSR to shove turn & I think I have no FE with this sizing.
On the other part, by x/raising smaller BN still have good odds to call.

OTF I think I have a good hand to x/call with backdoors str8 & fd. My check/calling range would look like AKo AQo with backdoors clubs KJ,QJ, some small Axcc and maybe AAc from time to time

Hero checks, CO bets $2.00, Hero calls $2.00
OTR I need 25% to call, I think he'll bet for value QTs/AJ/A8/A9 and bluff his busted 1 card fd like KQc QcJ(not sure he'd call pre), KQss KTss TT at some frequency.
I don't expect to see T7s/75s that often here. I don't see too many flush combo except QTcc T9cc

Sept. 28, 2018 | 4:48 p.m.

Any stats on BB ?
If I wanted to play 54s in this spot I'd rather 3bet on the BN just to play the pot HU IP.

Flop is standard.

On the turn I think I'd have check back to realize my equity as I don't really like to bluff in a 3 way pot when SB did an "unsual" move on the flop. Even with a strong draw I won't be very happy to be x/raised by SB in this spot as you'll probably face a super strong range.(not to mention that he could have Axss here that'd crush your fd equity)

Board: Ts7sAc6c
Equity Win Tie
MP2 25.65% 25.65% 0.00% { 5s4s }
MP3 74.35% 74.35% 0.00% { TT, 77, ATs, AsJs, As9s, As8s, As6s, As5s, As4s, As3s, As2s, ATo }

On the river I probably won't shove, all draw missed except 98s, you're not blocking any of his value hands. Maybe I'm wrong here, it's a spot where I struggle for the moment.

Comment | ExiL97 commented on Rough spot (?)

So the problem is when you don't 3bet you're capping your range to mostly only small pocket pairs 22-99/TT. This is even easier for SB to put pressure on you if he noticed it. So this make your call preflop even worse imo.

Maybe you should try to call some strongs hands when this guy is in squeezing position so you could start to 4b his squeeze.

I could be wrong but that'll be the way I'd play vs an aggro squeezing player.

Sept. 27, 2018 | 9:58 p.m.

Comment | ExiL97 commented on Rough spot (?)

I'd just fold pre, he's making too big raise to set mining.
As played I'd call flop & def fold to his shove. You have 3rd pair & even if he's shoving combos draw he still have decent equity vs your hand.
You'll have better hands/combos to defend vs his shove

Sept. 27, 2018 | 7:49 p.m.

I agree with both frontdoorbackdoor and MatoStar we're missing so much value by checking, we only worry about JT. The nuts FD just hit top pair which we can get value from.
1) I think I'll be bet/calling vs unknown opp. If he has JT you still have 9 outs to improve. He could also jam Axhh here or 2 pair.

2) Don't think it's an automatic x/raise ott. I guess it depends if villain like to float and take a shot when you check ott it would be a good play. . If he's passive and will check back a lot I see no point in checking the turn.

Comment | ExiL97 commented on 25Z KK in 4bet pot OOP

I actually like the way you played it.
For the question how do we play our range in this spot, is it bad to be unbalanced with our bluffs in a 4bet pot in this kind of board ? I mean this a not a spot that will occurs that often

Sept. 24, 2018 | 10:06 p.m.

Is the preflop call standard vs a squeeze with BN to act ? seems a bit loose to me, esp vs SB's range?

BB is playing 20/13 over 110hands so small sample, only 3bet 1/59 so far.
I need 35% to call, vs JJ+,AKs,AKo (top 3%) I have about 28% equity but I think vs this type of player I'll enough implied odds if I hit a good flop. Also he seems to be quite passive so I'll better realize my equity being IP.
Flop ($1.85) 2 6 Q
BB checks, Hero checks
standard I guess
Turn ($1.85) 2 6 Q 7
BB bets $0.90, Hero calls $0.90
I'dont see myself having a raising range here. I'll flat all Qx, 88-JJ, 66,77 and draws.
At this point I'm ranging him some Qx, TT-JJ, maybe some fd & some AK that's taking a shot
River ($3.65) 2 6 Q 7 Q
BB checks, Hero bets $3.85, BB calls $3.85
OTR I think he would have bet a Q so when he check I decided to go for his capped range JJ/TT AK. I decided to go for an overbet and capped myself as Qx or air.
Too optimistic ?
Is my thought process good/logical ?
Final Pot CO lost and shows a pair of Queens.
BB wins and shows two pairs, Aces and Queens.
BB wins $10.60
Rake is $0.75
