1) Value range - AA, KK, QQ, maybe AQ sometimes, and of course Ax flushes
2) Bluff range - I assumed that he may have a lot of Ax bluffs in his range, like AK, AJ, AT, A9, A8, all of them probably suited
3) I have no stats and pool tendencies its hard to say, 3 barrel bluffs in 3bet pots happens on NL25 but its kinda hard to say how often
Generally it looks that vs unknown there is too many unknown factors to call it down profitably :-/
May 23, 2019 | 8:08 p.m.
14/11 player opens from UTG. Number of hands is kinda decent, so vs this my squeeze range would be very tight, QQ+ i think. But not sure if MP pays attention to it :-)
But even if we widen it and we add more hands than they would hit this flop very hard, by addittional hands i mean, AQ, JJ, TT, or AJs. It may be hard for villain to call the second barrel, cause were still uncapped and we have a lot of nuts here vs the guy capped range.
May 23, 2019 | 7:58 p.m.
Guys, why dont we want to barrel the turn? With our 35% cbet, he may stick around with a lot of PP, 9x, Tx, maybe Jx. Lot of it will fold to 2nd barrel and additionally we have uncapped range vs his very capped range after two calls PF. Isnt it a good spot to bluff? Maybe not bluff, but semubluff cause we have 4 clean outs (T) and 6 unclean (A and K). What do you think?
May 23, 2019 | 1:12 p.m.
villain is completely unknown.
As i said, unknown villain but its SB vs BB. If it were other positions it would be fold on river or even on turn. But SB vs BB ranges are so wide, that im not sure. Can i call the unknown down? Or should i just fold the river?
May 22, 2019 | 6:25 p.m.
Thanks for opinions. I have to admit that all arguments you gave have a lot of sense and its hard to discuss with them.
Im probably a bit results oriented (again) cause he shows QQ but as You say he may also have a lot of worse hands when we check-check the river.
May 22, 2019 | 6:20 p.m.
he is playing 27/21 after 260 hands opening from UTG 6%, but i guess that sample is too small.
1) PF - probably 3betting will be better, but i guess that calling is also fine
2) Flop - decided to just call cause K fits his range much better than mine, should i raise here
3) Turn - he is betting strong, not sure if i can call here, it looks that he has a lot of Kx or AA, maybe 99, not sure if he opens 22 and 55 from UTG and he shouldnt have FD cause i block As
4) River - not sure what to do, its hard to find his bluffing range here, cause there is K on board and i block A and Q, I tried to bet and take the pot but now i think that it was bad idea, on the other hand i dont like checking behind either :-/ What would You do ?? Do you agree with the range I gave him in point 3) ?
Thanks for opinions !
May 21, 2019 | 7:29 p.m.
Im just NL10/NL25 player but i like the lead on the river. The hand is played very passively so he may have a lot of Ax when betting turn, as long with air and FD. On the river when we check he may:
- check with worse Ax, maybe check 2 pairs but doubt it (we lose some value)
- bet with flushes, air and maybe 2 pairs/set
Generally it will be hard to call river facing decent size bet, thats why it seems that blocking bet from our side should do the job. We may get called by worse (Ax hands) and a lot of hands will have to just call us (like small flushes), so it will help us to go to showdown quite cheap.
As far as it concerns bluffs in our range when leading river, im wondering if we have to have any here?
May 20, 2019 | 10:40 p.m.
Youre right, now i see that cbeting doesnt have much sense. I did it cause was thinking that K fits my range better and it is generally good board to cbet, but now i dont see andy adventages of cbeting here, cause 99-QQ are not folding to one bet.
May 20, 2019 | 10:22 p.m.
Yeah, it might be fancy play syndrome, i admit, im fighting with it all the time :-/ Thanks for opinions.
May 16, 2019 | 9:30 p.m.
Hmmmm, im still thinking about this hand and Im not sure about it.If he has flush, then his line is kinda strange, cause:
- he calls on flop with FD (why no raise with FD and probably 2 overs)
- decide on turn to MIN raise with his FD, begging for call in fact
Unless he has Qhxh, its would be non standard line to take with FD.
I would assume that he doesnt have flush here very often, so he just stays with value combos you mentioned 43, 44 and Q3 (debateble if he defends with Q3).
I can also imagine him valuebetting 3x or something like KQ + bluffs. Thats why im more convinced to calling now.
May 16, 2019 | 9:29 p.m.
unfortunately, again i have no stats on this gus, just moved to this stakes :-/
1) Just call on turn is ok? I didnt 3bet cause i think that he has a lot of bluffs after raise and i want to keep them in.
2) And river, this K is kinda scary for me, cause flush gets there. But when i look at this hand once again i see that i have to call here..... Sizing on river is strong, so he may have some flushes here, but folding is too nitty here, right? He has also a lot of bluffs here.
What do You think?
May 16, 2019 | 6:21 p.m.
kinda standard hand, till river at lease :-) I dont have any stats on him.
Raise on flop to get value from Tx and to protect my hand against some kind of gutshots, like 78, 89 etc. Flop is kinda dry, so my raise my look like a bluff.
On the river i was decided to check-call to catch all his bluff and i was sure that i wont get 3 streets of value from hand weaker than mine. But he shoved ana i have a tough decision to make .....
What do you think?
May 16, 2019 | 6:14 p.m.
villain 30/16 after 90 hands, AF = 1.6.
PF standard, cbet on flop i guess is ok, i usually cbet 30% in such situation.
But what should i think about this donk on K turn ? Its kinda strange cause K i definetly in my range.... On river flush and some straits complete. Should i just fold this river??
May 16, 2019 | 6:07 p.m.
UTG was very loose with 47/23 after 30 hands, i dont have any stats on CO.
PF squeeze mostly for value, cause UTG opens very wide.
1) On flop i decided to cbet 30%, cause this flop looks dry in fact and i gave them a lot of low packer pairs to their ranges. Assuming that people play honestly in 3way and additonally 3bet pots i tried to take the pot, hoping to have 6 outs in bad scenario - when get called.
2) On turn when i hit TPTK i bet once again, this time for value. Reasoning is exactly the same like on flop, I should be facing mostly pocker pairs, maybe some SD, FD or sets which beat me.
3) On river im not sure what to do, FD gets there, also some SD. I decided to shove, but now im completly not sure if its ok :-/
What do You generally think about this hand, cause i fill that i got lost somwhere in the middle :-/
Thanks for opinions!
May 16, 2019 | 6:01 p.m.
Just for the record, he showed KJ and won this pot.
May 16, 2019 | 5:49 p.m.
Youre right, folding PF is better and probably not cbeting also. I just thought that this board fits my range better then his (lots of pocket pairs) but its the reason to check-call in fact.
I just cant agree with folding to the flop raise, cause IMO he is representing just 55. All other holdings like Kx or anything else he should just call, even AK is probably a call on flop cause it doesnt need protection and there is no bad turn cards for AK in fact. There is no draws on this board. Specially when he is betting so big.
I admit that I may be a bit results oriented cause he showed A4s, but i find folding here very difficult :-/
May 16, 2019 | 5:48 p.m.
I see your point guys, i just cant put him on range which would check the flop and then show so much aggresion on turn. Maybe just 44 or 67 but he shouldnt have it in his UTG open range. Even sets should bet this flop cause is very drawy in fact.
My line doesn't make any sense, thats true, but i focused totally this time on opponents holdings :-)
May 16, 2019 | 5:37 p.m.
i have a feeling that im posting easier and easier hands :-)
This one is really basic.
Guy is after 125 hands, 22/19 with RFI on BTN = 54% and 3bet = 6%.
The question is obvious :-) What range should i shove here?
May 15, 2019 | 6:59 p.m.
this hand is no spectacular but i was really confused during it.
UTG was 16/10 after 100 hands.
1) I call PF cause i expect him to have very strong range with those stats and opening position.Should i just fold it?
2) Check on flop is kinda strange cause board is drawy, so he should bet all his value bet hands, like AA, AK, KK. The rest like QQ, JJ, TT, 99 probably too.
3) Turn is blank and it hits BB range better than UTG range, so im very suprised when UTG makes delayed cbet and sizing is strong. Its hard for me to put him on hand or even range so i decide to bluff him, but he fires back and he does it very quickly. I have to fold but still i dont have any idea what he may have here...... :-/
What do You think?
May 15, 2019 | 6:53 p.m.
a dont have much about this guy, after 100 hands he was 28/15.
Standard hand? I have to call it down? He shouldnt have KK, i block set of 8s, so the only hand he is representing is 55. His sizing is also very strong, he would probably play it slower with set on this not drawy board (76 is the only draw in fact).
The problem is that we are a bit deep and in fact we have just bluffcatcher in this situation. Call or i should fold it somewhere?
PF I open J8s when the blinds are nitty, its not my standard opening.
May 15, 2019 | 6:39 p.m.
Sorry, it should be fixed now.
May 15, 2019 | 6:15 p.m.
again BB vs BTN, it looks that i have problems with such spots :-)
After 30 hands stats 16/16, so no info in fact.
Im really confused with this hand.
1) Cbet 30% of the pot. Its ok, i guess, ill do it with my whole range here.
2) Bad turn for me, no need to bet here, ill get action only from better hands.
3) After his check behind on turn i fill kinda confident that my hand should be the best. I expect him to check behind the river a lot and see a lot of low pocket pairs.
I dont know what to do after his big bet on river...... He shouldnt bet it with Kx, Tx, so in his value range i see only AK, AQ, AT, KK, TT or QJ, and maybe AJ. On the other hand i played it very passive, so he may try to bluff me out from the hand on the river, cause its kinda obvious for him that im not so strong here, when i cbet 30%, check turn and check river. Can i call here?
Thanks for opinions.
May 14, 2019 | 7:50 p.m.
I dont have many hands on this villain, but he is playing kinda loose 33/24 with RFI on BTN = 50.
His sizing is kinda strong but BTN vs BB, so ranges are very wide and he can barrel with FD, after turn with Jx sort of hands, like QJ, JT etc. Can i fold here ? If yes, then on which street?
May 14, 2019 | 7:38 p.m.
what do You think about this hand?
I dont have any stats on this guy.
1) I want to cbet kinda big, cause board is kinda drawy, right?
2) Facing check-raise is not so scary, cause he may have a lot of draws or Kx. But i can just call? It has no sense to raise here?
3) Turn and river are blanks. Can i fold here? He may have a lot of draws here and hes sizing isnt strong, specially on river.
