Owen Shiels, when we have AcQd we have over 50% equity on this board, so I would normally c-bet the flop for about half of the pot and also barrel this turn for 40% of the pot. My reasoning is that the Hero is OOP, so check calling would make it tough to get any value if the club comes, but building a pot early must have +EV as there's obvious value when the club hits and you want the pot to be big when you hold the nuts, but also a Q or A that can come on the turn and river and give us the best hand, but there's also value in taking the flop down early as we don't have a made hand. I think check calling the flop allows the Villain to bet us off the pot on the turn, so I probably prefer checking behind on the flop IP. What do you think?

I think you need to believe one of the players in the blinds is likely to squeeze, but generally flatting just encourages a wider range of calls from the blinds

For me, there aren't any hands I'm shoving 40bb in this spot except for AK, but even then I don't like it because it looks like AK

Most clubs have crap structures for weekday comps. My advice is to play tight / aggressive, but see lots of cheap flops. Bet the shit out of your strong hands because you will most likely get plenty of action. By the time you get to the final table, anyone observant enough will have seen you playing really strong hands aggressively, so they will likely avoid getting into pots with you. If the stack sizes allow it, this is where you need to loosen up, but continue the aggression.You'll to pick your spots as the others will soo cotton on to what you're doing and if they're any good, they'll be expecting you to loosen up anyway.

Post | LagRat posted in Other: Learning other formats

Hey guys,

Where would you suggest I start if I wanted to learn how to play other formats of poker and how easy are these games to beat at the low stakes online?

I was surprised to see him turn over KJ at showdown and think he was floating the turn to rep the ace if his gunshot missed

I'm enjoying your videos, but was wondering if you would need to have a player tagged as a station for you to include JQ in his range at 51.30 as your turn bet prices him out of any drawers

Post | LagRat posted in Chatter: PokerTracker 4 stats

I watched Jeremy Menard's PokerTracker 4 Primer videos and learned how to create a report. I've played 9,000 hands across 79 tournaments, but I'm not sure what the optimal figures for some of the stats should be for a winning player. Where can I find that information as that would allow me to focus on the leaks in my game?

This is since the start of the SCOOP on Stars. I'm planning on playing as many low stake SCOOP comps as possible (alongside some other comps at the same time) while I've got the time off work. After a decent sample of hands I should have some stats to work with and improve my game.

Post | LagRat posted in MTT: ABC not enough to win anymore

Hey guys,

I've never been a winning player online, so I've been looking at where I can improve my game. I've watched a bunch of videos here, but mainly from another training site. I've always played too much of a LAG game, but without much reasoning. I would just 3-bet on the button with TJ suited because I could without applying much of a thought process. Don't get me wrong - I've never really been a complete donkey and I've had the odd result I was always told that ABC poker should beat the lower stakes, but I just never had the discipline to grind it out. Now I've adjusted my style to a much tighter game, I've played pretty much all of the low stake SCOOP comps on Stars along with a few others along side them and some low stake comps on Party. I've played just over 6,000 hands over 46 tournaments and I'm in just £175 ($215) profit with an ROI of 38%. I feel like I'm playing pretty solid, but I'm obviously being exploited too much as the blinds increase and we get closer to the money, so I guess it's a matter of just watching more videos and applying what I learn to my game.

How have you adjusted to the game in the last five years?

I was hoping to hear other players' thoughts about how tough the online game is now compared to say 5-7 years ago. I'll repost it in the MTT forum

I feel like I'm in a similar situation. I've always believed that ABC poker would win through the variance at the lower levels, but I'm struggling to see a profit and seem to be getting a lot of suck outs and being outdrawn quite often

How should I be adjusting my game for turbo tournaments? Should I be tightening my range to conserve chips or adopt a more loose aggressive style in position?
