How to explain that... Ok, limping ranges are weaker than raising ranges, which means he cant make to many strong hands on that type of board. I dont know what your villian does in that type of spot and how he plays and thinks about poker, but usally he dont have his top 15% hands in his limping range. You have to start preflop and think about through the hand. OTF you are ahead of his limping range and the types of hand he could have (Qx, weak pairs, draws and so on), thats the reason you bet. Now on the turn and given the fackt that micro stakes players a more passiv than aggressiv his raising range have to be stronger than a one pair hand or maybe a high equity draw like a pair + draw. He knows you have something here and now he feels save engouh to put in a raise and get called by worse or have at least engouh equity to make a strong hand on the river.

You dont overfold on the turn. The reason is most of the time you are beat when facing a raise in a limped pot. Micro stakes players are more likley to call draws then raising so folding the turn is the best line i guess. If you call the turn then you have to check the river and not lead. If you lead the river you take away the possibility for your opponent to bluff and you are going to call the turn in this situation to bluffcatch on the river. After your small lead on the river you make things way more complicated then it have to be. You show massive strength by leading and facing a raise so Im sure you are beat.

No need to be sorry. If you put that amount of effort in your game with analysing the hand histories I`m sure you are gaining a huge edge.

You have to pay attention and take notes about the hands and tendencies of every player without HUD. The VPIP and PFR are good to know but you cant draw any specific stats from it

I would bet at least half pot OTF. Turn is tough. Depends on which hands he is bluffing in that spot. If x/r bluffs like fd, oesd and pair+draw you have to call. But when his x/r range is more value heavy like sets and two pairs, which i think it is, you can find a fold here.

Raising turn is fine. You want get the money in with that typ of hand against lower sets, AA, tp and strong draws that have to call your turn raise. Never fold to the turn shove he could have worse hands for sure.

With no infos about villian i would bet the turn. x/r turn is an option but not one i would recommend with no info. To bet the turn makes way more easy to evaluate the river which usally goes check/ check after betting the turn. River is a call against some strong Jx and maybe some busted fd

Hi, it is a very complex topic. When constructing a range, i would think about my oppnent first. Is he folding a ton to 3bets ip or not? Does he flat 3 bets oop or does he a 4 betting strategy only oop against 3bets? Maybe he has a mixed strategy of defending by calling and 4betting.

Hi, got a question about the frequencies you use. How do you calcute the prefolp frequencies for flatting and 3betting a single hand?

River is a check close to 100%. The hands you listed above all going to x/f if you bet and mostly never call. You are beat every time someone raises your tripple barrel on board like that with topset. What hands shove the river that you beat? I dont see any worse hands. You have ton of Qx and flushes in that spot so no reason for villain to raise anything worse here

Im not a fan of the preflop play. You still have the BTN right behind you and if he does any action besides folding you are in a teribble spot. Ive got a polarized 4bet range in that spot. Dont know if its the best strat but works well for me.

You have only 94 hands on villian, so i guess you dont know what he is exactly doing with certain parts of his range. Flop could be a x/f. If you have a 3bet only strategy for sb, there must be some Ax and Qx for x/c on that board. JcJx blocks a ton of his potential bluff barrels, too.

Given the small size you use on the flop, bluffing could be possible. But does he ever bluff on a dry board in a 4bet pot? Most likely not. Tough decision how to proceed. If he is ever bluffling here with one single hand here like a suited broadway you have to call but given the fact that you hold Qd reduces the chance of him having hands like AdQd or KdQd. Dont think he would raise a hand like JJ here maybe KK+ or set. And if thats his raising range you have to fold obv.

got a question about the rake. Casino Austrias increased their rake form from 5% with 20€ cap to 5% with 25€ cap. I usally play the 2.5€/5€ with an uncapped buy-in. Not sure what the math behind it is, but is it possible to beat that game? Line up in that game is not to soft. So win rates shouldnt be that high.

I like your line. Raise Turn bigger is a good idea. If she likes her hand on the flop she will call a bigger raise for sure. Recreational Player often fold when they hear the words "all in". Make your sizing bit lower than all in and they will call a lot more often.

Check OTF is an option. If he defends a wide range and bets alot of his range when checked to x/c is ok. River is a fold. Even if he raises a lot of hands UTG, its still FR. After that line, the worst hands he jam are two pair+.

dont know any basic math videos here on RIO. But search the internet for the basic poker math. There a lot of good content out there. Youtube is not bad for the basic stuff too. Thats what i did long time ago :)

I know the Video. There is a lot of stuff that someone new to poker will never understand in first place. Start with basic poker math and work your way through it. After that watch it again. Great Video and you will gain a lot of the content.

I´m pretty sure he wouldn`t fold anything to the flop c-bet. There are to type of bets: Value and bluff. On NL2 i would hardly concentrat of gaining value as much as possible. So if you have KK+ or any other strong K in that spot would you really just bet 10 cent? Because the player pool on that limit tends to call way to light. So bet as much as you can get. You dont need to be balacend or anything in that player pool.
