Standard open 2.5x.I get 3bet by a regular that has creative lines,sometimes its tough to put him on a certain range.

I call the 3bet.
Flop:Goes x/x
Turn:He overbets. And i have to call.
River:He jams.

I can def see someone do this with TT,AA,KK...He has some bluffs.But i think the majority of his bluff range should probably bet the flop 1/3 or bet bigger.I have a very hard time pin pointing his range when he takes this line OTT.It seems very strong.But i also know my range is capped when i check back the flop.

Any thoughts? Is this a common line that people take these days? I find it very intresting.

Intresting. What sizing would you choose on a higher card?

Dec. 20, 2019 | 12:19 p.m.

It wasent 19bb..Its only 9.5bb

Gave my opponent to narrow of a range. I didint include like 65s for example.Only ones was 9Ts,98s.I think i could have chosen a better hand to raise here.Like if i had JTcc i think would be a better raise.I don't block my opponents A high range then except AJ. What would u consider being better bluffs in this situation?

I probably made a misstake in this hand by calling preflop.I gave my opponent to narrow of a range in a situation where his 3bet range def can be alot wider than a normal 3bet range because of the fish in CO.

Ah,sorry.Should have described it better. Yea.I don't think we can bluff jam every river.Because the guy still has some 9x hands in his range like i have.

I didint x/r flop. I raised it since i got position. The rational behind The 1/3 turn bet is that hands in my range like sets, 2 pair. A9s..can bet like this. So i think it makes sense for my range. Althou. It can Def be a mix where a bigger size is Better. I dont think People bluff jam turns enuff here either vs 1/3

I would have to evaluate river, but yes i would most likely bluff jam.

I open up A3cc in HI 2.25x. little bit over 100bb deep 222sek i had in my stack..CO fish calls.BTN folds and SB unknown 3bets. I decide to defend A3cc here.I got all the Axs combos for defending vs a SB and BB 3bet. I all and CO fish folds.HU pot.

Flop: 658r. I got over card and a backdoor flushdraw. And this board hits my range better than my opponents.So on a board like this.I got the range advantage.
Villain bets 18.25sek into a 43.30sek pot.I got 209sek behind. And i decide to go for a flop Raise 2.5x. I can have all the sets,9Ts,87s,A8s,A4s,65s.,TT,JJ. Ofc.Villain has some hands in his range that also hits this board like 9Ts.

Villain calls the 2.5x raise. Turn:7c i get a backdoor flushdraw,and the pot is 132.08sek and i got 163.69sek behind. Villain checks and i bet 1/3.Could go smaller here. I think a jam dosen't' accomplish much here.His AA,KK,QQ,JJ,TT will not have a good time here vs that bet either way.

My question here is..Did i play the hand fine? Would you change anything in the hand?

You don't necessairly have to follow a polarised range like the bible. As you dont have to follow a linear range.But i think that BvsB differentiate itself from alot of the other positions,because of SB's opening range and the way people poorly play these positions at micro stakes/small stakes.

I think its important to understand both aspects of the ranges.

I dont know how rake effects having a 3bet polarised range,but i think you should just auto profit money if the guy folds that much to 3bets.

Comment | Knuckles89 commented on PIO work

That might be true.I saw that we also block is potential reraise bluffs

Dec. 16, 2019 | 10:51 a.m.

Going with a polarised 3bet strategy would be a good thing to do in this case i think.Take trash hands like J7of,A7of etc. From what ive seen in PIO after working with a polarised 3bet range.Postflop you can cbet your range on alot of board textures, but SB who calls OOP are suppose to raise on certain boardtextures,but i think people at 25nl adjusts poorly to this,so i think you can get away with alot.

Putting some work into PIO.

CO vs BB on a Qh8s6h. CO bets 1/3 and PIO wants to x/r in BB with 65cc,65dd,but not 65ss

I think i know why,but hearing someone elses opinion would be apperciated

Dec. 16, 2019 | 8:48 a.m.

Yea,thats correct.I play on SvS.Thanks for the answer!

Since the site i play on don't have any converters or anything like that.Im writing the hand instead..The hands are played in swedish KR and its around 40nl$

I pick up AKof(AhKs) in BTN.CO opens and i 3bet to 44sek(11bb) since CO is a fish.SB cold 4bets to 132..(33bb)..We are 220bb deep.So i decide to call this.Flop:TA5dd.SB cbets 1/3.I call.Turn is a Jd.He checks.Since the Ad and Jd is out there,theres less flushes in this guys range,in general theres not that many flushes.And im thinkin,if this guy has the same hand as i have,i might be able to make him fold that out by the river.So i bet 200sek into a 450sekish pot to set up a okay jam OTR. So when i bet 200sek into that 450sek pot..When i bet OTT the pot gets blown up to 850sek if villain calls also.So if we get to the river,its a 850sek pot and i got 550sek behind

Would it be a better option to raise flop? I would def jam if we where 100bb deep. But this deep,im alittle bias on what would be the best possible strategy.. Turn bet..Should i have made that smaller,like 1/3? and is my thought process okay? IF the guy jams..What would u think his potential bluffs are here?

Comment | Knuckles89 commented on 3Bet Pot on 25NL

Yes.A range bet means 1/3,and yes.You still have 78s,76s in ur preflop 3 bet range,which means that u block all the straights if you have A7of.Since ur the preflop 3better.You also have AA,KK,QQ in ur range too.You got alot of the premium stuff,he aint got...Thinkin about how ur range looks like and how you would play it,is very important. It dosen't necessairly apply to every situation. If ur up against a fish.Just bomb it,you know.

Dec. 13, 2019 | 2:18 p.m.

Also its important to understand that a 10-15bi lose is not a downswing. Ur downswinging when ur on a 30-45bi losing streak probably.Ive gone through them. So its important to know variance.

Not a bad idea tbh

Comment | Knuckles89 commented on 3Bet Pot on 25NL

You could have AJof in your preflop calling range also.If you choose to 3bet a polarised range vs SB.Also OTF,I guess you could choose a mixed strat OTF,but i think in this case.Range betting would be a better option.

I dont think you should bluff jam the river since villain has more value hands in his range then you have once you check the turn.Could consider a bluff jam if you hold A7of(Ad) which i think is not the worst hand to 3bet BvsB.Althou i think i would barrel A7of OTT.

Im not sure if you can play this hand any other way,except range betting OTF
