Comment | Jbarez commented on NL25 - Flush draw 3way

On that type of boards you have to check a lot , probably close to range as board dynamics will change on many turns and both players have more nutted hands than you. Is this face up? No, as you should have many strong overpairs there too. However I dont mind leading there with 2 recreationals when you have hand with strong equity.

Comment | Jbarez commented on 10NLz - Nut flush draws

I dont mind both options, I would prefer calling as I think especially in SBvsBB spot you have not that bad showdown value with A high.

Wait, I dont understand xD You trap AA preflop, get exactly what you wanted(villain willingly going all in) and ask if you should fold? Turbo snap.

Feb. 1, 2020 | 6:20 p.m.

Recreational players actually bluff way more than regulars with that line. Still we are so low on our range that it doesnt matter.

Jan. 28, 2020 | 5:24 p.m.

On river only concern i whatever we will check/call or shove ourselves. Fold is out of question - too good odds and you block potential Kx hands in villain range. If he has quads then so be it, but I dont see many naked 6x/2x in MP bet/calling range.

Comment | Jbarez commented on KK on A high +BDFD

On flop if you want to include middlish hands like KK in cbet range then you should go smaller 1/4 - 1/3 of pot. You can bet bigger with that type of hands, but only on boards that favors your range like AAK, ,AK2 etc.

As played n turn you rep only KdQd,, overall I think its either check/call or blockbet.

Easy fold river to that huge donkbet without reads, notice how many better hands he can have - flushes, full houses, straight, trips....

Jan. 27, 2020 | 10:06 p.m.

call flop, always call turn if he is aggressive and decide on river., especially with not that big sizing on turn.

Jan. 19, 2020 | 7:11 p.m.

Guess we still not raising anything, even if he bets 25-33%

Obviously we are raising less than with normal(100bb) stacks, but we can certainly have there raising range as flushes are bigger part of our range and villain can flat some sets preflop..

BTW. 60bb stack, 20/15 and cbet flop 92% in 3bet pots? It doesnt look like good reg to be honest.

Jan. 19, 2020 | 6:17 p.m.

Flop is well played(though you can go a bit smaller), however on turn its always xback. No point trying to valuebet yourself when villain announced on flop that he has bigger hand than Qx. Checkback and mostly call river as it will be top of our range after this line.

Jan. 7, 2020 | 5:53 a.m.

I dont mind check/raise in HU, but in multiway cbet is significantly stronger, on top of that you can have nut fd, but your hand is still too weak to consider calling when he shoves over your check/raise. SO I would prefer mostly passive line and check/raise combodraws(fd+sd) and straight draws with backdoor fd

Comment | Jbarez commented on NL50z AKo 3b pot vs reg

nitty range + not so aggressive postflop + OOP = bet/fold flop. He is also probably not supposed to raise often on that relatively static flop so his range is probably value-heavy.

Jan. 2, 2020 | 7:24 p.m.

Yeah, I would also add that flop was rainbow and 8 completes one of few draws that hero could x/r. Therefore its not about being scared or not - hero would need to x/r very random hands for villain to have any incentive to bluffcatch to overbet vs range that is perceived as very strong and lacks many natural bluffs.

He was using his table image :D

Comment | Jbarez commented on NL25z AQo turn decision

Its either barrel with intention to shove on club on river or check/fold, you dont get odds to call turn as only K is your clear out.

Comment | Jbarez commented on NL25z AA in 250bb pot

TBH it doesnt matter what he has. Against that type of players with low aggression, high wonsd and nitty preflop stats I'm not even thinking about bluffcatching. Its snap fold turn.

Dec. 28, 2019 | 7:51 p.m.

Comment | Jbarez commented on nl100z got weird

He shouldnt have there many flushes as Ac is blocked and you bet big on turn, so I can assume he should call only 8c7c, 6c7c,6c5c. Other thing is that he looks nitty so its likely he will not open all of those and call to 3bet. He has more 6x but its nowhere enough to think about folding there A-5 straight. If he has better so whatever, you are probably not going to check river yourself.

Comment | Jbarez commented on NL25z KQs 3b pot

You have there overpairs, AQ, Ahigh flushdraws, combodraws,some sets... no reason actually to go as loose as to call KQ. Its 'gto call' but in reality people are way more value heavy than solver so you can safely fold hands like that

Dec. 26, 2019 | 5:33 p.m.

Comment | Jbarez commented on NL25z KQs 3b pot

Your hand is probably just fold turn. Yea, he can have so many bluffs, however hand vs range your hand is probably one of weakest holding you can have as you do terrible vs value range and bluffs still have a lot equity.

Dec. 26, 2019 | 4:38 p.m.

On turn I like x/r - people usually wont check twice Qx/flushdraw on turn and you may also get stabs from for example KsTs. Leading with overbet there make more sense however with hand like QJ/Q4 as when you hold Qx then its less likely someone will bet out. On river you want to bet smaller - some of your bluffs got there so villain is less interested in bluffcatching with his bluffcatchers. I would not go over half pot, probably even less on cards that complete both flushdraw and OESD. Vs raise snap fold , you should have there some flushes and he doesnt have there natural bluffs.

Dec. 25, 2019 | 2:37 a.m.

Maybe just streak of unplayable hands? Anyway its as easy to win vs that player profile as vs fish so you shouldnt care about that. Just steal blinds and refuse to give action when they are aggressive.

Comment | Jbarez commented on NL25z cold4b w TT

It can be sometimes 4bet bluff but with very low frequency. 50% 4bet TT in that spot is probably too much, even JJ is not pure 4bet there.

Dec. 23, 2019 | 4:54 p.m.

Comment | Jbarez commented on NL25z KK vs good reg

Kinda gross but I dont think you can fold to that sizing OTT. He still can have some flushdraws with 8c/9c Based on AFQ he is honest on river so I dont mind fold there even on blankish card.

Dec. 23, 2019 | 4:52 p.m.

Odds are horrible and also you will struggle to realize your equity postflop. For me its just shove or call, I would for sure prefer calling to smaller 4bet(23-25bb) but against 29bb I completely dislike idea of flatting, especially with AKo. Solvers also tend to tighten calling range to large raises and increase folding and raising frequency.

Dec. 23, 2019 | 4:48 p.m.

You gave SB probably too tight range - he is certainly not folding there strong suited broadways or middle pockets too. Its not surprise that PIO prefers polarization against tight and insanely strong range. However things would change if you give him looser range.

Also things like pot commitment doesnt exist for solver, but we always need to take that into consideration when playing vs human.

Dec. 23, 2019 | 2:57 p.m.

Why not just fold pre? His sizing is huge and you have completely no info about his postflop strategy. Not saying that your hands play way better with higher SPR. I prefer to call there with hands like AQo or middlish pocketpair, sc are first type of hands to throw away when you will have low spr on flop.

As played if I ever call it preflop and flop then I always call turn. You are super-capped so calling big chunk of your stack to fold turn doesnt make sense as he will very likely bluff again on turn.

Dec. 23, 2019 | 2:01 p.m.

Why awkard?

Hero raises to 3bb, p6-773105HH raises to 5 BB

Regular never minraises preflop, it means that this guy is recreational who is very unlikely to fold ace on that board. So obviously we are going for raise and happily stack him off. CO is bigger problem but we block 44, A6 is very unlikely which leaves only 66 from better hands. Not too happy if he backraise us, but still not folding as 66 shouldn't call preflop given action.

Dec. 23, 2019 | 5:18 a.m.

That donk river is so bad... You should also stop judging players stats after 200 hands, how is even possible to evaluate someone aggression on that sample? Anyway I doubt he is now calling TT to shove, your main customer there are random floats and Qx that bets river without your help.

Dec. 22, 2019 | 10:37 p.m.

Against fish I think I prefer to check/call flop. I dont see there big fold equity with so many gutshots on middle cards. As played on turn you probably have even lower fold equity.

However if you play this way I would be tempted to think about check/calling river as everything bricked and he shouldnt bet less than jack there.

Dec. 22, 2019 | 10:34 p.m.

You overplayed a bit your hand. Yes you are blocking sets but also you are underdog against KcXc, gs+fd has ~45% vs your twopairs. Therefore I think calling flop and evaluating turn is best line.
