Can x/r flop and get it in, or calldown. With JJ it is pretty close, overall it it is worse bluffcatcher than AT but if villain shoving JJ there it is not.

On the other hand vs 10bb 3bet size and being 100bb deep OOP you don't have room for calling. So 4bet or fold seems like only strategy which should exist.

Great video, I found it bit hard with meditation. Even after quite long time of short mediation practice my mind is jumping from breath to thoughts and back.
No one said it will be easy so I'm going to master it

I find it loose pre as well. For something like 2.5x it is borderline, for 2.2x I guess always open if rake isn't huge.
Something like 87 is better call on the turn as you block less bluffs and can improve w/o cooler(to QT or J9, Q7 likely calling pre less) which make difference in million hands. Though calling T8 is breakeven vs most recs here cause of big amount of possible draws and wide preflop flats

Comment | Jeff_ commented on make str OTR in 3bp

he needs to turn some KT/AK/KQ into a bluff to be profitable calling. If he has 0 bluffs and nothing worse as valubet. I can't find reasons to call.

Probably we can swing (or deviate) in these spots to herofolding. Not even convinced if this line is good to be bluffing when people quite sticky overall, but for sure nice for value with certain hands

Comment | Jeff_ commented on make str OTR in 3bp

mostly 4betting pre; River looks like fine spot to fold and mix checking on the turn because even you have straight you won't get paid off by worse. What worse he will call twice? nothing

You are pretty polar on the turn, so Jx is actually bottom of your range on the river.

Comment | Jeff_ commented on Fish isoraising betsize

When I raise to the max and then miss the flop I have close to zero FE.

Doesn't seem like a problem at all. And this is ''gold mine'', big station is dream opponent. If you have close to zero fold equity on the flop it does not mean that you can bet only made hands. Plenty of your hands will have a lot of equity and gonna be semibluffing. River for me would be most cautious street

29mintue: I would interpreter his words as you don't need to jam 66 here as it too strong of a hand and probably only 66/99 gonna be slowplays for you. Solver really like those calls and only jamming some KQ along with some fds(98dd including). Though his size not really used that much

Comment | Jeff_ commented on 10NL - Flatted 3bet IP

it is actually bad that we have BTN behind unless he is wide weak player. Because you end up in sandwhich with marginal hand

With rake can defend tight(4bet pre is reasonable option): pairs at some% and stronger pair we have more we want to continue. Probably AJs+, and KQs as well as some marginal hands which can't be dominated (87s,76s)

July 5, 2020 | 8:31 a.m.

as you already know it is opponent dependent: Suited Broadways;Off AJ-AQo; KQo; wheel aces are good bluff 4bet candidates as they block villain jams and play reasonable postflop. For value TT+ and AKo+

3betting 60% of hands seems super out line and this player likely rec on spazzy side. Can 4bet a lot and call 3bet a lot I suppose.

July 5, 2020 | 8:28 a.m.

Solvers pretty much 4bet calling TT. If villain is somewhat light with 3bets you can't go wrong by 4bet-calling. If he is only shoving AA as super extreme example than you will face value-jam very infrequently and mostly gonna play postflop or pick up dead money prerake(which is huge win). So sometimes you will lose (pretty rare considering KK+ is only 1% of his range while most aggro people 3betting close to 12-13% range from BUvsCO), but all other times you will win dead money or play postflop. And last 2 things will make your profit.

And keep in mind when villain not shoving enough vs your 4bets (bluff/value) you can go with mergy 4bets like AQs and so on.

Comment | Jeff_ commented on 10NL - Flatted 3bet IP

Preflop is borderline call, hand is pretty dominated by all Ax he is mostly squeezing.
Turn you can shovel it in and see folds from AdK, AdQ and so on, balance it out with ''need'' protection hands like QQ. Villain can for sure have a ton of bet/folds but this is not 100% information. Any paired turn card for him is decent as it reduces your set combination and essentially works better than pure blank card.

July 4, 2020 | 3:23 p.m.

Nothing wrong with nitty fold on the turn. River it is pretty much polar for him, either he is crushing you or have nothing so leading doesn't make any sense. It is not like 7x,88/99 are in his range at any %

July 4, 2020 | 3:01 p.m.

I wrote more but seems like comment wasn't saved by me. When you limping SB/BB and board comes X32, that board is pretty good for IP because both 2 and 3 interacts much better with his range and he has plenty of pairs. I'm talking about J9 hand in first part of the video where board came K32(fd) and you said that this board is ''pretty good''. Mtt players tend to actually check far more frequently when we expect there(tho limping range wider there)

Post | Jeff_ posted in NLHE: nl200 vs rec

New player only saw him leading 3 way on the turn vs flop checks with 88 on 45A4o and giving up river OOP. Weak player for sure but tendency are unknown.

Didn't want to play 2 street game as I have no information how wide he is. Flop I will raise here 100% and call KK/AA and possible JJ as they need less protection. Turn pretty standard valuebet

July 4, 2020 | 11:39 a.m.

Table is HUGE, I can see marks and cracks on the table.

July 4, 2020 | 8:20 a.m.

1st hand isn't that a mistake for him to bet that hand on the river for this sizings? looks like he can develop 2 sizing game and this one logic into a small one or give up blocking (K8/K7 folds)

As far as your points, just defending MDF(solver frequency for that spot, I'm not sure they are same for this spot) is way to go. And when he overbluffs that's sucks I suppose

13min that fold(KQo) is solid(calling close to 1 chip lose) and if he is range checking best play by far

16min T7s vs BU without backdoor. Looks like a clear mistake to me without backdoor on a huge unfavorable board

Post | Jeff_ posted in NLHE: nl200 AK

Villain unknown Russian reg
I've missed a bit preflop play, thought it is calling more frequently vs this huge size. But that's alright

River feels pretty ugly, this line strikes me more as value rather than a bluff. In GTO I need to be calling here for sure, in game - different question

Comment | Jeff_ commented on nl200 3bet spot

4betting doesn't make much sense as this hands is by default +EV call(vs that size) and without blockers it is hard to outperform calling in these positions. But at low % for board coverage and big coolers more or less reasonable

July 2, 2020 | 10:05 a.m.

Comment | Jeff_ commented on nl200 3bet spot

KK i would agree is better call. JJ suppose to be worse than any pair, it can be right if villain using all AJ as pure with this line

Stuff like 65 and 98 much more +EV call vs solver(than any PP except KK). Since we don't know his turn strategy we gonna be defaulting to that

July 2, 2020 | 10:01 a.m.

Flop just a range bet; pretty much you are crushing him on low paired board with one high card. I'd give him range of KJs+,ATs+, some low SC and PP with touch of slowplaying (AA)
So can bet/bet/bet and bluff AK I suppose

Now this is not exciting hand to calldown, as any hand in your range except AAs and AsQ.Just an average bluffcatcher

June 29, 2020 | 2:38 p.m.

Feels like there is no point for min betting when your whole betting range is flushes+. You can't arrive on the river with anything worse that pair of Ace, just because calling any Tx, or KQo vs 1/2 flop bet OOP is losing.

Because it seems like this bet could be inducing I would call, overall I'm not shy here for 1/2-- 1/3 bet and fold vs raise. Essentially when 3$ going in, I'm not gonna be check-folding so it is reasonable amount to lose

Comment | Jeff_ commented on River Decision

Looks pretty weird. Think that FOLD would be more/less standard play, but tempting to call as his line exclusively represent KQ and that's not may combos. Rec can bluff here pretty much any pair representing straights which he shouldn't have a lot(If he show T9o, well I would still like call since it means he float happy and can end up with enormous amounts of weak hands).
As well I like sizing up turn with any Kx to 2/3 and Jx can throw in 1/2 size as less exciting hand to build pot.

June 29, 2020 | 7:06 a.m.

Looks fine to me; Preflop sizing is alright, maybe going 30bb(3x) is okay too.
I'd bet flop small/turn small and this river probably just jamming. On the turn he should have pretty much AQs+, and all pairs(76/65/A5) and PP. Calling JTs/T9s on the flop looks marginal to me (maybe vs 1/4 it is okay) vs 1/3 less exciting.
Point is that any turn card except 6/8 are pretty good for our range as we can leverage our advantage and he will have tough time calling turn and river (excepts nuts obviously)

June 29, 2020 | 6:58 a.m.

13minute, his plays seems quite good everywhere(though I didn't use ranges for big 3bet, but used monker ranges for 2,5bb-10bb-24bb
picture for response vs min x/R

Turn you can bet at pretty high % or check/raise; Though check/call is reasonable as well

June 29, 2020 | 4:56 a.m.

Not 100% sure but can fold JT-98o; call 87-54o and fold:below Q6s; J6-J7s and 74s; Not positive about low Kxs as well

But sure all PP are positive, KQ - 100% sqz; Axs are good calls, suited connectors and gappers like 86s. Don't see 4 way spots pretty much ever.

June 26, 2020 | 2:38 p.m.

if you are planning to fold river with pretty much nuts, something is wrong. Either you scared of losing (I have it sometimes) or somewhat paranoid.

Regarding your question: he should be jamming 64/A4 as it ahead of your calling range and you beat him with only ~10 combo from total range. You forced to call turn with many Kx, all FDs and hand as weak as 66/65/54/A2/A5 and on the river you can fold slightly close to 60% of your range. Easy to guess that Kx is pure bluffcatcher and mixing towards folding, however if we folding everything expect nuts on the river this is just massive +EV bluff river spot for villain. However I agree it is hard to have reasonable bluffs in his shoes and I can't tell which combos I would bluff since I don't know it is 3,5x pre or 2,5x

edit: his gto bluffing range 42/52 low FDs some 54o and random Ax off

June 25, 2020 | 2:16 p.m.

Because rake is so high at nl2, I say fold everything offsuited and raged. Possible those KJo/JTo making little bit of money as a call but essentially not much and you won't lose a lot by folding and focus more on another spots.
Can call T9o-54o since they are capable of making absolute nuts and stack off.
Thats it, gl.

Post | Jeff_ posted in NLHE: nl200 snap vs shortrec

Snap isn't exciting as zoom poker but people much more spew and less tight.

we are playing 36bb deep with CO(rec, but can't see stats as snap feature)

CO opens (2,5x) and BB(Hero) calls BB with 85ss

Flop: 4s2s4d
CO bets 1/2 BB(Hero) calls
Turn: Js
CO bets 2/3 (leaving around 20BB) BB (Hero) think about jamming but feel like calling is higher EV and let him spazz
River: Jh
CO jams slighly less than 20BB into a pot 30BB

June 25, 2020 | 9:25 a.m.

Yup you have 13% odds to call but do you win enough? With A6o you pretty much check/folding flop, or if you hit pair you are looking to check/down. In worst cases you face agression and fold best hand, or get valuetown vs better hand.

Look as well for 3 other players they all suppose to have somewhat tight ranges and therefore even as strong hand as AJ is pretty much breakeven -EV preflop call, but massive + EV squeeze.

So, if he's calling sth like A6o

looks like pure big mistake; if you want somewhat reasonable prof, famous bot ''pluribus'' was playing fairly tight when facing open and cold-call. And he is by far better ''player'' than any coach you can find.

June 25, 2020 | 8:55 a.m.

I'd bet flop here if she is really wide she will fold a lot and call worse (KQo); It is pretty much valuebet on the flop and expect to get some folds from low PP. Something like AQdd is check for me as it doens't want to get blown off or face weird lines.

Raising river thin, so calling is pretty much only choice
