38 points

yes, but over a sample of 400 hands, that may not be accurate. he might have that 98s some of the time

Thanks - i do think 98s is in this range though but otherwise agree

June 24, 2019 | 10:13 p.m.

Thanks for that - very valuable as i dont have snowie or PIO. Would be interesting to adjust for population tendencies regarding turning made hands into bluff which i dont think happens with near GTO frequency. yearh analyzing it now i should probably check flop

June 24, 2019 | 5:01 p.m.

Pretty much my thinking, and with SPR on the river villain should not perceive to have a lot of fold equity. Only need to be good 1/4 though, but still dont think this is bluff more than 1/10 maybe

June 24, 2019 | 12:05 p.m.

Good input, and villains seems somewhat competent so i guess he could do that. I think you are right about the line, when i then check River i seem very capped. It would probably have been better to check the flop, and i will do that sometime here but i thought that my hand 1) needed protection, 2) can get value from plenty of holdings. But year on a lot of runouts an overpair is not a 3 street value hand. Villain can have KK or AQ here as you mention but in game i was sure he would check them back. I think i do have a good portion of hands i can check call with here like QJ and maybe JJ to protect a hand like AA when i check. I did think he could bluff with T9 or KT - but i dont see it so often with this SPR.

as it is a 3bet pot it is okay to range 3bet 1/3rd here, but still think C/C is better . Generally i think most reggish people are starting to know how to play against 1/3rd range betting, atleast they are calling more

June 20, 2019 | 7:38 p.m.

actually that is not a good idea. if you want to tighten up you want to get rid of A6s-A8s before you get rid of the suited wheel aces as they can make straights which give them more equity

June 19, 2019 | 9:58 p.m.

3bet a little bigger OOP pre, i would say 4.5x atleast. flop is just a C/C mostly X/R is not a good option. Generally when oop we dont want to c-bet flops that are T high or lower atleast in Single raised pots. when it is a 3bet pots and you have a stronger range, i guess a range 30% cbet is not bad either.

June 19, 2019 | 8:52 p.m.

almost - except ATo. might open 89s,78s,67s,65s as well pending on table and if blinds are nitty / never 3betting

June 19, 2019 | 8:48 p.m.

Yearh, as weird as it is, with this board here we are at the bottom of our range and most people will not find a bluff here. we can call river with AQ, QQ and AA as well as AK . We have an insanely strong range here and villain should know that if he is a reg so it is a good trap spot on river for him with AT or AQ

June 19, 2019 | 7:23 a.m.

Comment | Mad_DOG_33 commented on fold set on flop?

yearh, its rare that you should fold bottom set on flop but here it is that you need to let it go. BB and have all sets as well as straight and top two combos as he was priced in with almost ATCs and btn definately has a alot of sets in his range.

June 19, 2019 | 7:17 a.m.

Preflop is standard yes. You are in a very narrow spot, UTG vs MP 3bet and BTN cold calling. i think flop check is fine , dont lead out here unless you have a solid plan for how to balance that range. Turn - i prefer to still just check/call and play the hand as a bluffcatcher. Btn range is probably TT-QQ, AK and AQs, maybe KQs. He shouldnt really cold call wider than that as he can still get squeezed from you pre. i think the value bet is too thin. He has JJ, QQ, AKhh that beat you (5 combos) all which are reasonable flop checks and he has AK and TT which you beat but he will probably only call the combo's with a heart. As played, yearh Check and folding to the shove seems like the most sensible play. Block betting river seems bad since his range is very polarized and a large portion of it is nutted so he can comfortably shove over your block bet

June 18, 2019 | 1:20 p.m.

no need to apologize :-) i was curious as i didnt think it was clear at all, in game. Its a 4bet pot UTG/LJ vs MP though so dont think 44-88, QT JT is is villains range at all to begin with... its a pretty narrow spot i think

June 16, 2019 | 8:29 p.m.

why do you think the river is a clear shove?

June 16, 2019 | 5:43 p.m.

yearh, open hands like this rarely but if blinds are weak and generally passive i might

June 16, 2019 | 5:42 p.m.

Villain had AQ so yearh we take down a nice pot and its always nice to make a correct read and see it work. i dont think villain has Q5 and Q3 here he was not that loose calling out of SB against early position. The turn is the tricky spot here. in game i was thinking that if he made it 70+% of pot i just call, i just think i miss out on value from his one pair hands when he just half pots it. lots of rivers will be difficult for us to get more value on though as we cant comfortably bet two small pairs for value

Yearh, i agree. the turn C/R was a bit creative , but betting against fishy player seems the standard

June 15, 2019 | 11:04 a.m.

yearh may be, its just the turn tiny 3bet from fishy player... seems so nutted.

June 15, 2019 | 10:47 a.m.

Pre, flop and turn is well played. C/F river to that size, seems ideal. might call like a small river probe vs weird villains. his turn check back is weird, but as you note he is not spewy i dont think you are good here vs an overbet from someone who also openlimps. Villain likely decided to slowplay a set for whatever random reason or have something weird that also improves on the river

Comment | Mad_DOG_33 commented on JJ call 3bet

Pretty much agree with all of this. JJ is top of your your range on this board (unless you flat QQ which isnt great OOP), but villain as the IP 3bettor has significant range advantage on a flop that misses both of you 100% of the time.

June 14, 2019 | 8:43 a.m.

Comment | Mad_DOG_33 commented on JJ call 3bet

preflop. standard. OTF, close but i think i would C/R pairs that need more protection like 77-99, maybe TT. JJ i would just do into call down mode and reeval turn and river. When you raise and he calls though, i think you can check turn as you are OOP and it is ugly when he jams. His range should be probably QQ+ and AThh+. Maybe occasionally stuff like 78hh but depends on his 3bet stats. i dont have access to Equilap right now but you can run a calculation vs that range

June 14, 2019 | 8:39 a.m.

We are not folding suited aces here on the BTN, especially vs a 3.5x 3bet , but never really. With the suited wheel aces i think you can do a mixed strategy of calling and 4betting, but if you are merged with your 4betting range then calling is fine. vs this sizing i also prefer calling as we dont pick up as many BB's when we force a fold from villain. postflop, we can to raise here at some point if we want, as we dont have much showdown value. IP we can also just call. I dont like raising the flop here, would prefer to do wo with A4 or A3 ss for a guttor as well as BDFD and less Showdown value. if we call flop i think raising turn is ok, but it gets ugly if he jams.
Nothing wrong with calling either, i think the EV is close

June 14, 2019 | 8:26 a.m.

How do you play your range in this spot? i would check back flop with most of my range here. If he checks again on turn, bet and barrel again on most rivers. If he bets turn you can call or raise depending on villain tendencies, if he is a station just call as you have zero FE which you need in order for semi bluffs to be profitable. if you hit river you shove and get called by worse flushes from this type of player.

I am not a fan of overly changing your playing style too much against fish unless the reads are extremely solid. Rather you change minor things, like maybe sizing as fish will not alter their ranges based on sizes. bet bigger for value and less for bluffs in that case makes sense in a vacuum. One instance of him punting a stack off could also be tilt, and is not a solid enough reason to build a pot with a draw, especially if you have zero FE.

June 11, 2019 | 12:45 p.m.

Think it is well played and pretty standard. We dont want to fold pre as we will have a lot of equity on many board textures . If we pass up these spots even if OOP we burn alot of equity. It is fine to play cautiously though. C/C flop is fine vs standard sort of ½ pot bet. vs larger turn sizing i think folding is good. We dont want to raise a lot here as we probably C/R sets on flop a decent amount of the time, so raising only really represents 88
