Been using Pokerscientist and I'm very surprised by the output of some pair boards in 3b pots.
For instance on BB vs BTN on TT4 BB is betting around 3/4 pot 63% of the time and betting around 1/3rd the rest.
This isn't something I myself have ever done and also isn't something I see from other players.
Firstly I wanted to check this is actually correct? I'm assuming it is but would appreciate if someone with pio could verify.
Also interested to know why. I don't see what betting so big accomplishes, particularly with the overpairs. I can only think it's because we want to generate a lot of folds straight away with the weaker parts of our range so have to bet our strong value this way to balance.
I personally bet most of my range small in this spot and may also do a bit of checking.

Hi, I'm thinking of purchasing vision and am aware that there is a way to get river solutions with monker free. I'm just wondering if you need a high spec computer to do so or is it no so computationally demanding if you're only doing river?

PLO100 100 effective
The main villain is very wide and spewy preflop.
BTN raises to 4.50
Hero is BB with Ks Js 9d 8d and raises to 14.
Flop Td 6c 9c (31.50)
Definitely not thrilled about the situation. But with a pair, open ender, backdoor diamonds and a nut straight blocker I decided to pot go with it. I have a tendency to spew in 3 bet pots OOP and it's definitely a leak of mine.
However, I figured I have too much equity (and he connects too much) for me to bet half pot fold.
That leaves x calling or x folding. I think x calling up to half pot and folding to more may be a decent strategy?
What do you think? Is just potting too spewy?
Also I am aware the flop sizing isn't GTO - maybe potting is best from an exploitative perspective though, although I'm not sure. It's the type of villain who would rather just stack off than see a turn anyway so in this particular instance it probably doesn't make much difference.

Playing on a very loose table, lots of weak players with very high VPIPs as well as 3 bets. The villain is one of the stronger players. He's not afraid to put money in and I imagine he has a fairly aggressive 3 bet though haven't played with him enough to be sure.
Eff stacks are 100 but the villain is 350bb deep with a very spewy villain on the button. This makes me think he's not 3 betting the weaker aces as they would be very difficult to play oop this deep and there's no way the other two villains fold.
Hero opens Adjckhkc to $3.50
CO and BTN Call
SB 3 bets to $18
I just decide to get it in, thinking the big equity edge I have against his rundowns offsets the times his has aa.
Probably standard but I just wanted to check this is ok since 4 betting akkx isn't something I'm very experienced with. Maybe a bit results orientated since I did run into aakk...

Hero ($50) opens CO $1.50 with ThTs
SB ($50) raise $5.50
Flop 7h 2h Ah ($12.25)
SB bets $4.50 hero calls
Turn Jh ($21.25)
SB bets $14.50 hero calls
River 7d ($50.25)
SB jams $25 Hero folds
Now I'm assuming I'm supposed to be calling river. But I folded since I assumed perceived fold equity was quite low once I call turn.
I'm now thinking with the pot odds I'm should have just called. What do you think?
Villain is a fairly aggressive reular, which leans me more towards thinking I made a mistake.

I played my first plo50 zoom session yesterday, which I enjoyed but I did lose $100 to rake in 1.8k hands. So I was just wondering what sort of winrates are achievable at these stakes so I know what to expect. Struggled to find anything up to date relating to this.

So I've noticed pokerstars has quite a few NLO8 tournaments so I'm wondering what sort of ROI you can expect in these. I know PLO8 is probably a fair bit higher than NLHE but I wasn't sure if the no limit aspect will increase the variance too much to make them worth adding to a tournament schedule instead of NLHE.

Wasn't sure whether to put this in PLO or MTT but I'm struggling to find any content for progressive KO PLO MTTS. Obviously with the equities running so close there's a lot of difficult spots relating to whether you should hunt for a bounty or not.
Is there any content available?

I don't see how 3betting early opening ranges can be a good idea here. This is a low stakes tournament too so I don't think there's any need to have a bluff 3betting range in this spot. I also don't see why there shouldn't be many 4bets.
