I think that he might donk with a sets, SD and some Qx type of broadway hands that he didn't 3 bet. The turn completes some of his SD in form of 87 and it generally is better for villain range so I would just call turn and evaluate river. If you raise you are mostly folding his Qx type of hands that give you value and that leaves him with sets and straights. After his 3bets it's an easy fold given passive tendencies of pool. The street I would consider raising is flop only here.

I'm not sure but I think it's not possible. In case of Unibet you can request hand history from the support and then manually calculate winratio - maybe that's possiblein MPN too.

Other options are Unibet with very soft playerpool but weaker rakeback and Microgaming Network which offers good rakeback deals. For example RedStar poker offers 30% fixed rakeback without the need to grind a status for higher rakeback. The only downside to those 2 options is that they don't allow HUD so it's harder to analyze your game and develop. Still I think they are good options, especially the Microgaming Network because rake is a killer on microstakes. Check the info on Microgaming skins:

Another room to consider besides Stars is 888poker but I'm not sure how is the state of games there or Sky poker (very soft) if you are UK resident.

Hi there. I am making this post to ask some experienced players if they could look into my statistics and point leaks I have? I am currently looking into specific areas of my game to improve. I have a 100k hand sample played on NL10 and lower. After those hands I am barely over breaking even with 1,5bb/100 so there is something definitely going wrong. I would gladly appreciate anybody taking his time. If you need more specific stats or filters I will happily add it. Thanks

Hero checks, CO bets $2.22, Hero calls $2.22
Here facing a pot size bet I expect him to have some sets although 2c reduces the amount of them. On the other hand I don't see a much worse hand that might be bluffing here. I expect all Qx to have enough SDV to be checking. The question is how many Ax is he capable of calling a flop cbet with. I need around 33% equity here and I wonder if I really have so much? Vs a range of 66,22 and some kind of KQs or AJs I have a breakeven call. If I add 6 combos of hands like TT I'm actually way ahead. Thanks for comments

Recs have often unelastic calling ranges if hes planning to call it doesnt matter if its 2/3 or pot size. On dry boards im bluffing with low sizings like 1/3 maximum and find lot of folds. On a wetter structure im cbetting only for value without any specific reads and im doing it 2/3 or more. I agree you block some SD but you can get value also from top pairs and second pairs. Im Just pointing general reads vs recs you have no info on him and of course some recs wilk have elastic calling ranges for sure.

July 4, 2018 | 5:27 a.m.

Betting pot on the flop and shoving safe turns is reasonable vs a recreational whos range of calling will be wide, any 9x,8x, weaker pocket pairs and lots of draws. On a K turn he still might be continuing with 2nd and 3rd pairs + draws. Vs his raise I think you are still good enough times to call. Also having a Jh is in fact worse because you block some of the flush draws villain might have so his range is more nutted.

Comment | MulderFBI commented on Preflop ranges

You can of course rigidly memorze ranges and play by them. It's not that bad idea if you want to quickly fix some of the preflop leaks of yours and jump straight into the game.
The question is if you will really understand why the ranges look like that and how to apply them in real poker situations. I advise you to learn how to construct your own ranges. You will learn when to apply different types of ranges, calculate bluff-value ratios, how interconnected are ranges (for example 3bet and CC ranges) and what types of hands are good to include into ranges (for example 3bet bluffing ranges).

I think in learning steps there are videos about preflop ranges, also check newest Carroters video about types of 3bet ranges and check out his book Grinder's Manual - comprehensive info for 6max and there's a few chapters on the preflop ranges. I'm reading it for second time and can recommend it.

Comment | MulderFBI commented on [50nl] fold 2 pair?

Ok I gave MP a very tight calling range (even assumed he might flat AK) and you are right that frequency of betting and checking is in favour of chekcing (like 75%) sorry for the mistake, still learning ;) Also we are in multiway pot so we might be checking even more here. What do you think is his range on the river?

I think after check raising the flop I would go for bigger sizing on the turn maybe thinking even about overbetting? I think that player type can't let go TPTK type of hands.

Comment | MulderFBI commented on [50nl] fold 2 pair?

Why did you skip a cbet on the flop? I think we can easily get value from better Ax (like AT-AQ or even AK if you say villain is a nit) not to mention possible draws on the board. Also thinking in terms of whole range you are going to be betting this flop quite often having a range advantage and strong perceived range.

As played I think I'm not betting that turn, villains have a range that can contain lots of sets and 7 completes some straight draws. Value betting is not that bad here but I feel we won't have 3 streets of value often here.

Comment | MulderFBI commented on [VIDEO] z10NL

I have watched first 20 minutes. , 7:50 spot with QJs on the BU - I agree on everything as played but wondering what parts of a range are you checking back river with and also value betting/bluffing? Having a third pair is it good to try to bluff on a Ax river and try to fold his Kx? I believe we have a range advantage here with significantly more Ax than opponent. 8:50 T8O BBvsSB - IMO weaker player can easily skip cbet with some weaker pairs and won't fold that to a float. Also he can havve lots of draws that he x/calls flop with. I don't hate that flop bet but IMO on the river you are not generating enough FE vs a weaker player (especially after checking turn) 13;55 - A9s from EP - are you skipping c-bet here mainly because of the player type? Because board seems good for a range bet.

Will try to watch the rest this week.

"Yeah turn bet probably doesn't make a whole lot of sense but as of now I don't know how to prove that."

In general betting or the sizing-wise?

My first doubt - the sizing I couldn't decide between half pot and 3/4 polarizing bet.

My question is how much pressure can I apply to the capped range. Should my strategy be to just bet blank turn large and ship blank rivers also? I think those runouts are pretty good for me as I don't expect him to have a lot of 4x or 47. I think I could get a lot more credibility here vs a tighter range on earlier positions but not sure how to approach BB vs BU and if I can expect some lighter calldowns? I decided to just give up not being sure about my turn play.

We hit our set and have a clear value bet on the flop. What are the general guidelines in that kind of spots with 3 or more players in the pot? As played should I polarize myself and bet 3/4 or even higher here? Which sizing to choose if we are for example original raiser, board is good for a range c-bet, should it also be in a range of +/- 30% of pot size or should we increase the sizing bit more?
Turn ($3.21) 2 3 9 6

I have decided to bet larger to secure a nice shove on the river and also capitalize on all draws he might have.
River ($8.61) 2 3 9 6 2
BB bets $10.07 and is all in, Hero calls $6.49 and is all in
That lead is strange and I assume he's either bluffing with missed draw or hit some kind of 2x and overplays it. Occassionally he might show up with 99. Not sure about 66 if he is able to call flop with it.

Thanks for all the responses, from my knowledge if you buy either CREV or GTO you get license for other software for free.

Post | MulderFBI posted in NLHE: What to spend 100$ on?

Hello. I was recently thinking about buying some software to help work with my game. As I am currently playing NL10 I would like to get some advice what software will currently benefit me the most. I must underline that 100$ is currently 1/3 of my roll but I don't mind spending it if it helps me develop in the longrun or even force to move down. Here are the options I am considering

1) Buy a solver - as PIO is too expensive for me at that time I was thinking about getting cheaper alternative of GTO+ + CREV for 80$.
2) Buy a yearly Snowie sub for 99$
3) Buy a Simple GTO Trainer - 1 year core pack for 79$

I am also considering just keeping that amount which could give me 4 months access to the RIO essential sub. I was also thinking about getting some coaching but 100$ is not enough to afford substantial amount of coaching sessions.

So what are your thoughts guys? Thanks!

June 4, 2018 | 6:18 p.m.

Hi Paul thanks for the video. My questions:
1:50 ATo hand - what makes you think he's overcbetting that board? Is it the sizing factor which seems not standard (we expect to see a smaller full range bet I assume)?
6:50 -JTo you say we don't have enough equity/outs facing a min x/raise but don't we have a good implied odds here? Especially if this guy is marked a weaker player we expect him to make lots of mistakes and overplay trips or some weaker hands.
15:50 JJ hand I wonder if we ever have a cold calling range when BU 3bets? If yes what would that range look like? I guess we are not very comfortable playing OOP and not really knowing if initial raiser will 4bet.
24:45 QJs hand - what do you think about c-betting? We have pretty decent equity having a 2 overcards and a FD. Shouldnt we have a wide c-betting range here as the board is somewhat dry?

May 29, 2018 | 8:21 p.m.

Hi there,

I am currently working with Snowie analyzing my game especially in spots where I have folded to a c-bet. I have a problem though - large sample of situations and lots of them contain spots where there are limpers present. Unfortunately it's really hard to analyze that kind of spots where limping/isolating occured because Snowie seems to totally misread ranges in that kind of spots. Is it possible though to exclude situations where limping/isolating occured? I've tried to filter only by 1 raiser adn excluding 1-2+limpers but it seems to don't work. Many thanks!
