I think IP's high checking EV nails it. And OOP will bet a lot himself so it's not like he folds that much once he gets to the turn.

On a side note it seems that (I haven't run it) if IP starts betting more than equilibrium frequency OOP's range won't have a hard time adjusting aggressively to it (notice there are tons of combos with a pair or weak draw that mix folding and something else - they can simply be played more aggressively vs a high frequency bet).

fwiw I planned to have a smaller size on the turn as well, but my hand liked the big bet.

"He was like, 'I think a call is better than a fold' and I thought to myself, 'yeah I agree' and then he said 'but I would shove' and I exploded."

Comment | LgWz commented on NL600 Value Shove Range?

I don't think we should assume villain calls {44, A9s, A6s} at 100% frequency preflop.

Well deserved! :D

Regarding the AQcc cold 4bet, (9:40) why do you go for two streets of betting instead of three? Particularly on this board I think our range benefits from betting three streets since we either have KK+ or nothing and villain's range should be mostly bluffcatchers or slowplays.

00:45 haha close enough! It's actually short for LagWizard, my nickname from the old Warcraft 3 days :P

Oh, btw you know if he shoves you have to fold right? If his range is TT+, AK you are cooked

I think calling is the best option. You have decent odds and ok implied odds and you can c/f without a J on board (since his range is pretty tight, you could c/f at any flop and stack when you hit a set or a 89T board or flushdraw or you could bluff off monotone boards, even if you don't have anything)

It's really hard for him to bluff AK without a sidepot, so that's why I think you are secure to call preflopp.

No WaY!!! You can fold AQ here sometimes vs some players, but not AK. The first shipper is full of stuff and the second one have at least AJ/AQ so you bet those two ranges. Easy call. Unless both players are super super tight than you can you avoid a marginal +EV spot and fold. But seriously, that's gonna be like 5% of the time. It's just like folding KK in a 100bb game

I think you played awesome postflop, but preflop I would prefer to shove. As everybody said, 88 is hard to play postflop, and it's a really good equity hand preflop vs his 4bet calling range. I don't think you can't turn your hand into a bluff since no draw or Ax will fold and only sometimes will make him fold 99/TT/QQ, but that's a very small portion of his range and you shouldn't focus on his folding range. So as played preflop, you should decide whether to bluffcatch and call down or to give up at a turn bet or something. Since he checked turn and river, your life was much easier.

Comment | LgWz commented on $2r FT pre flop spot
I don`t think a player playing a 2r is good enough to spot a nice 4bet bluffing scenario. But your sizing really made your hand polarized into KK-AA and bluffs, so his 4bet is gonna work so often that he might spotted that weakness. That being said, maybe the right play, as played, would be to shove, since you do push away all the bluffs and semi bluffs, and his range is quite polarized too. But to make things easier, just '3bet a little more. You gonna avoid a cold 4bet and a 4bet jam as bluff from the original raiser. Sometimes you just have to say 'hey I'm commited so don't try anything stupid.

Anyway, take into account that making a 5bet bluff shove here is an ICM kill. You are almost dead if he calls and wins.

In a few words, you are saying that the time it takes to see a flop (wich happens more frequently when opening from EP) is larger than the time it takes to wait to see if anybody has opened preflop. I like it!

Comment | LgWz commented on Sunday 500 , TT 40bb deep
I like the 3bet, but don`t like 5beting. First, your 3bet conquer a lot of good things. You make stacks shallower wich is good because you don`t want to play deep oop. Second, you gain a lot of chips when he flats your 3bet: your perceived range is quite tight so he will give up a fairly amount.Once he 4bets I would just fold. I doubt it you are going to see him go to showdown with 99 for example, and the way stacks are I don`t think you have room for anything.
