Betting a 1/3 on the flop seems like a far the best option with the Ac blocker, however I would bet all my AQ like that :)

What I dont like is the sizing OTT. I would be betting 1/3 again, he would have tough time to continue with JQ,QT draws, 88,77 etc anyway and we block the nutflush, so there are not so many FDs out there. I would be betting 1/3 with majority of my range, checking just the obvious 88,77,66, maybe QQ. I would not mind to put AQ with Ac to my x/f range on this turn, as we block the flush floats and we have a lot more profitable hands to continue.

On the blank river I would be mostly giving up after he called two streets. Maybe bluffing with some of my worse hands that got to the river like this, like JTs, QTs.

I would have to be certain he is super nitty to fold here.

Otherwise, I would be defending the suited aces here. We have some playability postflop, can x/c draws etc...
You can also call with AA to balanc, That said, I think especially on lower stakes and with that stack size, villains tends to have very strong range, so I would be most probably shoving my AA to get max value...

Aug. 13, 2019 | 10:48 a.m.

What do you do vs this sizing on the river? It scared me more then allin to be honest. So I did not contemplate calling even though I could with the Kh...

Allin from my side OTR would be interesting too... If Ithink he folds an 8, which he never will :D

I would be checking as well. You will have your one, maybe two streets of value on safe turns/rivers any way and you avoid some messy checkraise situations on the flop.

I dont think you would defend ATo vs UTG raise, so you would not get into this situation anway :) correct me if I am wrong...

Aug. 4, 2019 | 1:11 p.m.

If BB never 3bets I would tend to raise all my range here. Slightly tighter than my normal 20bb CO raising ragne. So basically, the intersetcion of Pedros ranges...

Post | MJBNone posted in MTT: Q9s vs massive turn overshove

Bounty Builder 44, villain 50/21 after 24 hands (20$ bounty)

Preflop I go mix between limp/call and limp/3bet.

Flop, I go bet (check with stronger Q?, which I dont have with this line, so I dunno). Std peel vs his raise imo.

Turn, I block lot of his bluff combos (calling with Qc9c better?) + I dont think its worth to gamble here, as I will still cover all people at the table when I fold.

Is it reasonable?

I run it through solver and quite like its line of x/r flop with these T8s combos with backdoors... Then, continue on turns that help me, check on for example 8c turn and give up on not favorable turns.

Interestingly, would I be for example 20bb deep. It tells me to only x/c flop and x/shove favorable turns. I quite like it as well.

Comment | MJBNone commented on Big44 river shove

The villain is more on the solid, agro side. Maybe I put it poorly it should be:
villain - agro solid
blinds - fish :)

..but I like your thoughts about the recreationals. You are right, that I often find myself making fairly well thought river play like this, only to get snapcalled by overpair or even a 9 or something...

July 24, 2019 | 9:13 a.m.

Post | MJBNone posted in MTT: Big44 river shove

Q

Big 44, villain agro, fish on blinds

Preflop std.
Flop, would you play differently?
Turn, I block some of his flushdraw and bluffs, but I think I have to call...
River, after his blockbet, I think this is perfect spot to shove and make him fold better pairs. If he plays flush this way, then WP :) what do you think?

I am not sure, but low stakes I would tend to fold. Ppl do not 3bet light enough from SB especially vs UTG.

66 are bottom of my range here anyway...

July 18, 2019 | 8:42 a.m.

I would just call especially vs fish, which you can overplay postflop. Would shove if I were closer to the other 2 small stacks 20-25bb.

..also, I would 3bet shove more of my normal 3bet/calls, because of the ICM pressure. I would not want to get into a situation I am playing huge pot OOP with 2 small stacks still on the table.

Comment | MJBNone commented on A2s UTG vs BTN fish

Thx.

My friend on other forum had a good point, when someone suggested x/shove turn:

x/c turn - villain has passive stats so I dont think he will be bluffing a lot on turn

July 16, 2019 | 7:58 a.m.

Post | MJBNone posted in MTT: A2s UTG vs BTN fish

Villain 39/9 fish

Ingame ti was almost automuck, but looking back now, I think I am too tight...

I approximate villains range on the turn to:
99-88, 55, 33, QTs, JTs, 87s, 76s, KhQh, KhJh, QhJh, KhTh, (Ad8d, As8s, Ac8c??), 9h7h, 98o
and got, that I have 40%, so it seem more like insta call...

Hand

I go cbet to fold out 44-77, KQ, random trash + value from JT,JQ,T7 maybe. Turn completes 67 + some sets but I think I should continue and it seems stack off vs shove?

How do you play this?

Question

Shove or 3bet?

If I go 3bte, I want to make it at least 250k. In that moment it is obvious I am not folding to MP1, I look strong. At the same time I dont want to size down and end up 3way or OOP against BTN.

...plus shove looks "weaker"

What are your thoughts? Shove or 3bet? What sizing?
Does the fact that this is 16PKO and both villains have around 100$ bounty change your decision somehow? (imo more shove happy)

I would take shoves here,
But, if I were to develop a raising range I would maybe take my very top and bottom of my shoving range. With a plan to fold the bottom to shove. But I am not really sure if it would make more $

Oct. 19, 2018 | 11:15 a.m.

I would widen my flatting and also 3 betting range.

But it also depends on the size of the open.
