Comment | Ivey111 commented on JJ 3bet pot.

This flop seems like the other 3BP hand you post with TT but without FD.
Like on the other hand, we have cbet polar strategy but having no FD board 1/2 is the best size to use.

Hero Strategy OTF:

When the turn doubles, solver usually prefer cbet with PP who need protection (QQ, JJ, TT) but if we check is for XR vs any sizing bet; mix cbet - XC - XR with AA and mix cbet - XR with KK except when villain bet 1/2 or more that only XR and never XC.

Hero Strategy with PP when check and Villain Bet 1/4 - 1/3:

Hero Strategy with PP when check and Villain Bet 1/2:

Usually, solver think villain must start to bluff with Kx-Qx-Jx when we check and we need to protect vs this part of his range doing XR with QQ-JJ-TT and we don't need as much protection against this part of his range when we have AA.

Villain strategy vs check of hero OTT:

So, if i have not info about villain probably cbet and if i have some info could start to mix cbet and XR according to your trends.

OTF we mix bet polar and check with this combo.
Reviewing with solver, the difference vs both option is 0.5bb/100. And, solver bet about 35% - 30% without heart and about 45% - 50% with heart.
On my sim, Solver strategy is this (sizing option: 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 3/4, P, 1.25P, 1.5P, AI):

And, the difference vs check range is about 16bb/100. So, we shouldn't checking range here.

I think the sizing we use to cbet it's important because villain's calling range will be some different. Vs 1/2 he always call w/TT+ and 99-88 with BFD and vs 3/4 he always call w/JJ+ and TT w/BFD but fold with 99-88 (this is the solver strategy for villain vs both size).

Villain range vs 1/2:

Villain range vs 3/4:

OTT, when we cbet 1/2 OTF this combo again is mix between check and cbet 50% of the time with 1/4P - 1/3P but when we cbet 3/4 OTF this combo is AI 90%-100% of the time.

TT in 1/2 OTF:

TT in 3/4 OTF:

When we cbet 1/2 OTF and check OTT:
- vs AI we need to XC
- vs any other size we need to mix XR AI (20%) and XC (80%).

When we cbet 3/4 OTF and check OTT:
- vs AI we need to XC
- vs any other size we need to XR AI (100%).

Solver think that villain never has shoving range but if he use this sizing could be with 2p or PP who need protection and have additional equity (TT or 55 w/FD). We need about 37% equity to justify XC vs AI and vs this range we have 49% with TT.

Obviously, if we know that villain or population does not use this type of combo and only move AI with flush, TT+ w/FD or Set or something like this we must XF with TT.

Comment | Ivey111 commented on tpwk v 3 streeets bvb.

I think it's true, as TPLancaster say very well, that missed FD but i think he has yet a lot of missed SD (KJ, KT, K9, JT, J9, T9) that could be bluff and we don't block him.

For me, this part of his range don't bet to this size so i tend to overfold on this spot because i doubt the reg on this stakes balance correctly this range (1/2 P OTR) and could be underbluffing.

But, not every reg play the same strategy or they know the correct move/size and we need about 25% equity to justify the call, we could be win vs some villain thin value range {A6-A5-A4}, block some value range and it's the spot preflop with the weaker range possible so probably I call and take note.

Jan. 26, 2021 | 11:53 a.m.

Reviewing with Solver:
The preferred size for the cbet is 3/4 with a polar range (sizing option: 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 3/4, P, 1.25P, 1.50P)

But, Solver strategy for hero vs cbet small is:

And, with this particulary combo is Call 100% with huge difference of EV (6.5bb/100):

Villain start to fold some Ax:

OTT, our strategy should be like this:

So, your size it's good. And, Solver prefer XR with this combo. But the most important thing, i think, is how villain react vs our cbet:

Villain continuing to fold Ax. Theorycally, he must be XC with most of AK-AQ but in practice i don't know if population do it. I change villain range OTT and OTR overfolding some Ax and PP and in all cases solver prefer XB with 98cc.

98cc don't block Villain XC range and solver prefer combos who do it, mostly Kx-Qx-Jx that they are the main block of Ax with which villain could arrive at River.

Jan. 24, 2021 | 4:06 p.m.

I think the A OTR doesn't have much impact in the CvR + XC villain range so could be a good spot to bluff.

I don't like too much his sizing OTF because our range only have about 10% - 15% of combos who can't call vs this sizing (more or less) and he doesn't have equity advantage or nut advantage. So, to me, not make sense a depolarized cbet strategy here.

I'm not sure if villain CvR w/AK-AT-OC wo/BFD. But, of course, he could call w/{SP+, PP, Ax-OC w/BFD}. So, here we can get some fold of w/Ax reducing the impact OTR.

Turn reduce our value range and range advantage but we still have combos who want bet and this combo never win at showdown. Further, i think we can get fold him of Ax-OC wo/FD but i'm not sure with this size. Anyway, if he don't fold Ax his impact OTR it's about 10% more so still have enough FE if we bet.

River impact in some villain range {Ax w/BFD} but not too much and we could get some fold from his mostly part of his range {PP and OC w/FD}. Checking back we never win and i think is very difficult for him to XC w/JJ-88 and this is about 35% of his range if he Call OTT with Ax wo/FD and 50% - 55% if he Fold this combos OTT.

We need about 40% of FE to justifie the bluff and i think we have it.

I didn't think in leadding OTT because I do not have as worked that spot as I would like and didn't see it in play but it makes sense.

Jan. 23, 2021 | 10:12 a.m.

I was thinking in the idea of checking range OTF but I have sometimes PP who need protection (JJ-TT mostly and maybe QQ too) and i think could be loss some EV this particulary combos doing check.
In this case, if we check and villain bet, what do you do with this combos (JJ-TT) XC or XR?
I think we shouldn't have XR range in a board where we have not nut advantage.

Villain ColdC3B is good reg 24/20/10 in 1.7k hands

Villain OR is reg weak tight 24/18/7 in 8k hands

I think we must polarize our cbet range to something like:
Value: {OP+}
Bluff/SemiBluff: {Overcard w/BFD, AJo%, KQo%, 76s, 65s, 54s}
I have not T9s in this 3B range so I don't include it.
This combo with 2 OC + BFD + BSD i think is good semibluff.
What do you think? How do you play OTF?

I think Turn is extreamly bad for our cbet range so i think we need to ultra polarize the cbet and this is a combo that doesn't matter cbet to fold. I think not is good idea bluff here with every FD or AKdd-AQdd-AJdd because the XR is really bad for our equity so i think the bluff range could construct with some frecuency of A5dd-A4dd, QJdd, 65dd, 54dd and Jx. But I have many doubts
What do you think? How do you play OTT?

Thanks =)

Villain is a good reg 25/21/12 in 1k hands.

I think OTF that our advantage cames from the OP's but villain has nut advantage so we must to polarize our cbet range.
Villain has a lot of overcard (42% - 44% i think) but without BFD only 18% - 20%. The remaining 80% could call vs cbet, so we don't have a lot FE.
So i think our cbet range could be:
Value: {OP+}
Bluff/SemiBluff: {A5s, A4s, A3s, overcard w/BFD}
But, what do we do with AKo-AQo?
I think we could protect overcard without BFD and AKo-AQo including some AA-KK and AKs-AQs w/BFD in the XC range.
What do you think? How do you play OTF?

When I check i think XC it's OK and when villain XB OTT i think that his range mostly include PP {QQ-88}, maybe some Kx {KQ-KT} and 7x {A7, 87s, 76s}. But i don't think he XB with Set, AK, FD or SD. So, OTR i think i need to bluff this combo. I block A7, AK, KQ, and QQ that he could be call and block FD think doesn't matter because mostly bluff OTT.
What do you think? How do you play OTR? What bet size do you use?

Thanks =)

Jan. 22, 2021 | 7:44 p.m.

I think we have about 40% - 45% of value in our range who want cbet {TP+} and we can bluffing another 40% - 45% to be balance. So, i think we can simplify our strategy cbetting range something between 1/3 - 1/2 (more 1/3 than 1/2).
If we cbet OTF, Turn not helped us, so our combo i think should be check. And, OTR i think we could mix bet and check. To have Ah is bad but not have Ad is good, he has AK and PP calling OTF so our SDV is nearly 0% so we need to bluff sometimes.

When sizing OTF is usually 1/3 the EV between cbet or check with Medium/Botton value range and Medium Bluff range is similar. So, check it's fine too with AQhh.
And, when we check OTF and OTT and he too i think he doesn't have QQ-JJ-Tx-KQ-KJ and PP to much, so if we bet we're trying to fold him of Ax and PP that not bet OTT. So i think could be mix bet and check.

Comment | Ivey111 commented on KJo x/r flop.

This is the strat of my sim (1/3, 1/2, 3/4, P, 1.5x):

And, this is the strategy and EV with this combo:

Solver develop a polar range cbet to 1/3 mostly and with this specific combo prefer cbet than check, 60% - 40%. Though, the EV is the same more or less.

When we check and villain bet 1/2 solver prefer XC with this combo and XR 8% +-:

And the range that use to raise bluff/semibluff is: {KJdd-K5dd, A6dd-A4dd, JTdd, 87ss, 65ss, 54ss, KxTd}. Always in frecuency, but the combos with most frecuency is A4dd, KJdd, KTdd, K6dd, K5dd, 65ss, 54ss and 7xss.

Bluff 8% with this combo and 40% of KxTd.

Normally, I see in sims that combos that can get TP or SP OTT prefer to do XC than XR.

Comment | Ivey111 commented on KJo x/r flop.

I usually CB 1/3 with a polarized range on this spot.

This combo I guess I mix bet and XC (more bet than check). Bet because I block calling range and there are decent runouts where i can continue bluff (A, T, 9, Xd) and valuebet (K); XC because we've K and I think is more easy XC OTT + XC OTR when we get it than make a SPR low with XR OTF and move AI w/TP no TK or SK.

Also, I think we want cbet with QQ and Qx not to give equity and 77 to extract value from Qx of villain range.

But if we develop XR range I think do it with a polarized range and the bluff range could be some mix of {JT, J9, T9 w/FD or BFD; 65, 54 w/FD or BFD (if you open in UTG), A6-A5-A4 w/FD (this to have some nutflush in XR range)}.

I think when we XR w/KJ and we get the K it's difficult, on this stake, that villain call Turn and River with lot of Qx so finally we move AI vs a better value range. But this is in my pool and in my experience.

When we XR OTF with this combo I think that Turn no it's bad for you because most CvXR range of villain could be Qx and runout reduce this and you blocking, and flush and you blocking too. Our XR value OTF and flush want continue betting and this combo could be a good bluff.

Comment | Ivey111 commented on JJ 4bet pot

Make sense this sizing with KK OTR blocking AK and trying extract value from your QQ-JJ.

I think it's not so rare to have frequencies of AA-KK-AKs in the Call range vs Cold4B at these levels because the 3bet ranges are very narrow.

Jan. 20, 2021 | 6:59 p.m.

I think is a crying call OTR.
Villain could have some frequencies of KQhh-KJhh-KThh-QJhh-QThh-JThh and 87, and maybe some AJ for value.

Jan. 20, 2021 | 12:52 p.m.

Comment | Ivey111 commented on KQs, sqz pot.

I think cbet OTF could be fine, and Call vs XR (we could have 42%-43% vs his XR range and it's ok with this SPR).
When call OTT and comes the K OTR i think we should call.

Comment | Ivey111 commented on JJ 4bet pot

Without villain info i don't 4bet with this combo in this stake. I don't know your pool but in mine villain 3bet less so i don't think we have enough FE 4betting here, his range vs 4bet could be QQ+, AK maybe some JJ-TT so JJ don't have so much value.

OTF vs this expected range we don't have FE with this size and when villain XR we could call by the odds but when Turn comes the K our equity is nearly 10%. So, we should fold.

His sizing OTR could be a thin value w/QQ or some JJ-TT but we block him. And, at least, on my pool people don't balance enought with this sizing so i think is fold.

Comment | Ivey111 commented on tptk v x/r

I like your size OTF. We're OOP and need to control pot and extract value from his PP, BFD + BSD, etc.
Villain could be raise with Kx worse than AK vs this size so i think Call OTF and XC + XC.

Jan. 20, 2021 | 12:01 p.m.

Oh sorry, yes XC + XC + XF.

Post | Ivey111 posted in NLHE: NL25 - Bluff on any street?

CO is a REG 21/17/8 in 650 hands.

Do you bluff this combo on any street?

At least, I've 10-12 combos of KJo so I think we could balanced with Kx/Jx w/BFD.

Some KsJx/KxJs could be XC + XC + XR so I think I will have XR range OTR and I need some bluff.

If not bluff with this combo, how do you develop yours Bluff Range?

Thanks =)

Thanks all =)

I fold, so i dont know what he has. But, in general the population underbluff in this stake so i prefer overfold in this weird spot.

Post | Ivey111 posted in NLHE: NL25 - MWP River Game

BTN is a REG 25/20/10 with 16 CC in BTN in 1.1k hands and SB is a REC 25/11/1 in 288 hands.

I think OTF we should polarize our cbet range and this combo go to the check/call range.

I think OTT is check/call but OTR I don't know which combo he has bluffing that not bluff OTF. And, on the other site, I don't know which combo of his value range we beat. I'm not sure he bet turn and river w/Q8, AJ, KJ, etc.

Thanks =)

Comment | Ivey111 commented on 50z JJ 3bet pot

I like the jam with this combo on this Turn.

I think villain's range has enough combos with additional equity that could be call vs jam and XB if we check like {A9dd, A8hh, K9dd, K8hh, ATdd, KTdd, QTdd, etc} and I prefer put pressure on that part of his range.

In my sim, with 4 option sizing (1/3, 1/2, 3/4, AI), solver only bet AI or check.
With this combo, he has 30% AI - 70% Check to X/Jam if villain bet.

JhJx and JhJd are the best combos to bet this sizing because blocking his monster draw and straight and not block medium hand w/additional equity.

Jan. 16, 2021 | 7:44 p.m.

I think like Pierre, we don't need he has bluff in his raise range to have enough equity against his possible value range. So, I call OTT and Blocking/Fold - XC - XF OTR.

Jan. 16, 2021 | 7:18 p.m.

I think if you plan to bluff OTR maybe it's better to do it OTT.
These types of vilIain may not fold all their Ax high (AK, AQ) OTR and many of the combos you make to fold OTR would also fold OTT. Also, if he don't fold OTT (KQ, KJ, KT, QJ, QT, JT, etc) you don't give him the chance to bluff you OTR whit these.
But, in general, i think like Raoul and not bluff too much vs this villain.
