Post | Gae80 posted in MTT: 7 left, final table bubble

3rd of 7 players left.

SB and BB tight players, they fold often to my raises. I'm sure SB has no bluff in his check-raise range.

This is the payout structure:
1:72.80; 2:47.31; 3:25.23; 4:18.92; 5:13.66; 6:9.46; 7:7.64

partypoker, - Hold'em No Limit - 600/1,200 (120 ante) - 3 players

BU (Hero): 24,596 (20 bb)
SB: 47,536 (40 bb)
BB: 62,048 (52 bb)

Pre-Flop: (2,160) Hero is BTN with 6♥ Q♥
Hero raises to 2,520, SB calls 1,920, 1 fold

Flop: (6,600) T♦ J♦ 9♥ (2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets 3,240, SB raises to 8,400

Fold, call or reraise all-in?

Hi zloty1712, thanks for your answer!
Yes, light 4bet wasn't the right term :)
I think you are too hard on me, I maybe played this hand badly ( that's why I posted it on the forum) but not in a complete mindless way. That's IMO. It would be great to hear answers and opinions from other players.
I'm quite surprised you think I made mistakes pre-flop. Q-9 along with other mid/high suited connectors are good candidates for 3bet bluffing from BU according to a Run It Once course I'm studying. You usually 3bet 3x against 1 opponent, I think the 4x size is not wrong against the OR and a caller.
Post-flop I don't know what the best options are, I don't think it is an easy spot anyway.

Thanks for your answer
I have no much info about how villain play postflop with ICM implications.
I think on lots of flops we have to be cautios because with these shallow stacks and ICM implications villain's flatting range can be tight with lots of broadways and A-x combos.

Comment | Gae80 commented on ICM final table spot

Hi Jae,
Thank you very much for your answer!

I agree that in lower stakes limping or raising are usually better than shoving when we have 15bb. The problem here is that SB flats often and 10-9s doesn't play so well postflop with this shallow stack. The shove can be really profitable if villains are ICM aware and/or scared money. I think it's a close spot though and as you said we can R/F, shove and limp and none of these options are wrong.

Post | Gae80 posted in Courses Forum: Flop checking frequency IP and OOP

In episode 25 "3bet pots -Postflop play" Owen shows a solver report and says that IP we check at higher frequency than OOP.
I think I missed that point in the previous postflop videos and actually I had it backwards. I understood that IP we are usually against a wide and weak range and we can cbet more on dry boards and use more protection betting than OOP.
Could you please clarify this point?

Hi allinwlk,
Wouldn't it be better to create a specific group for this course?

Feb. 21, 2021 | 8:49 a.m.

I'm no expert on Discord but why not? How does it work? Can we open the group ourselves?

Post | Gae80 posted in MTT: ICM final table spot

Hi everyone,

What do you think of this hand? I ran it in HRC and it seems a close spot.

SB flats often, so I think raise preflop is not the best option. If we play chip Ev I think it would be an easy shove but with ICM implications I'm not sure it is an easy spot.

Post | Gae80 posted in MTT: Call on the turn

CO kind of aggro donk, no info on UTG.
I think the call preflop and on the flop are correct. I don't know if calling my remaining 30bb on the turn was the right choice. I need a 22% equity to make a profitable call. Do you think I made a good call?

Thanks for your replies!
Robert, I didn't call the 3bet because there were 2 other players that already made action so I preferred to folded them out and if that is the case play heads up against the 3bet raiser.
I think the mistake is the jam on the flop, I don't know if the check-fold is always the best option. At these stakes villain can easily jam an underpair to my check that can be considered a sign of weakness. And it's so difficult to fold kings with the big pot built preflop.

Comment | Gae80 commented on Big mistake or not?

Hi Goodfellahh!
I don't have info about villains, I played this 20 euros tournament with a ticket I won in a satellite, I usually play micro stakes.
Squeezing is certainly a good option with K-Q, I think we can mix squeeze and call with this hand, I would say 50% squeeze and 50% call.
I think you're right, the shove on the river is a bad play. Check-call is probably the best option. Check-fold I think is not the right choice with a 0.5 SPR.

Comment | Gae80 commented on Can we fold trips?

Hi Goodfellahh, thanks for your answer!
In my range at this stack depth 9-9 is 50% tribet and 50% call to EP raise. I called because UTG could have 4bet jammed with his 50bb and it' s not easy to call 50bb with 9-9 against EP.
On the flop I never fold trips for 50bb, and actually UTG shoved A-K, a very bad shove after all that action.
The problem here is the SB, considering his action he can have exactly J-Q . And that's the hand with which he won the pot.

Thanks for your comment Douggyfr3sh!
Yes ,I think the donk shove on the river is a big mistake. It would have been better a check-call, I don't think I can check-fold with a 0.5 SPR. Maybe with this stack and no info about villain I could have check-fold on the turn.

Post | Gae80 posted in Courses Forum: Low SPR and 3bet bluff range

Hi everibody,
In the 3rd video talking about the SPR Owen says in low SPR scenario we have to play hands with immediate equity (hands including high cards) and not speculative hands like 6-5s for example.
Now in the 13th episode in the BB v BU 30bb 3bet range example a lot of low suited connectors are included in our bluff range.
I know the BB bluff range includes weaker hands than the CO or BU bluff range for example, but can we include a few low and medium suited connectors in other positions bluff ranges in low SPR scenario?

Sorry I'm trying to post the raw hand history but I keep getting an invalid hand error.

20 euros tournament, no info about the opponent.
What do you think? Is it a fold on the turn or a check-fold on the river?
Did I make a big mistake in this spot?

Thanks for your comment maxii89.
Do you think it would have been better flat preflop and fold the flop then?
Yes, I think I underestimate ICM factor and played this spot too aggressively. I should have definitely played more cautiously against the chip leader.

Comment | Gae80 commented on Study group

I have just started the course but I think it will be great to create a Discord or Facebook study group. If not a study group at least a general discussion group for people who bought the course.

Sept. 29, 2020 | 5:03 p.m.

Thanks for your answer James! :)

Sept. 28, 2020 | 11:16 p.m.

Hi James,
So if I understand well in order to calculate the SPR I have to take the smallest stack in play (and not my stack) and divide it by the pot size. Am I right?

Sept. 28, 2020 | 4:19 p.m.

Ok James,
Thank you very much for your answer :)

Sept. 15, 2020 | 5:16 p.m.

Hi everybody,
Would it be possible to put a comment section below any video like the other Run It Once training videos? I think it would be more practical than open a new thread for any question we might have.
