lIlCitanul Thank you for your answer.
Can you explain more about the flop decision please?

Looking at it again I think that going allin on the river is a mistake, because if he has an Ace too, then we are paying more rake. Something like 1€ could have also be fine.

What I also don't understand is why he bets just 1/3 pot on the turn. Shouldn't he bet 1/2 pot to then jam river? That turn bet seems so small

BubbleNedRum I didn't misread the hand, but badly explained myself. What I was thinking while writing was "He seems so tight with his openings that also his 3bets seem only for value"

May 7, 2020 | 5:34 p.m.

Thanks for your answer. The reason is that I assume that specific opponent doesn't 3bet light. It seems the classic TAG who makes money at the micros by playing only monsters and value betting as hell. But I may be wrong.

I think here he could have only few hands that beat me: JJ, KK, AA. Don't really know if that's a call.

Post | OMGxSkillzZ posted in NLHE: Struggling to play the SB

Hi all,

I noticed I'm really struggling playing the SB against UTG/MP. I'm really unsure how to play hands like AJ, AQ, KQs, 77, 88, 99, TT.
What I think is that they are not a 3bet for value, nor for bluff either. But calling seems very bad because it opens BB the opportunity to squeeze/join us.

Can anyone provide me some SB ranges/tips how to deal with such situations? I'd really appreciate.

I usually fire a small cbet after my 3bet because it can win pots immediately, but I do think that's a massive issue I need to fix. Is it always a check here?

Don't realy think we can fold given fish gives us 14% odds, and I also thought that with an Ace or a Jack on the river we win the pot.

Hey Manfred,

I approached the level up in this way:
When you have 110 buy ins for that stake, you move up, shot-taking that level. If you drop to 100buy ins again, you move down.
You must be honest with yourself doing this.


July 24, 2018 | 11:58 a.m.

What about x-raising the turn?

July 24, 2018 | 11:53 a.m.

Just a question: have you tried to play less tables? I think 16 are way too many, especially if your win rate is only 1bb/100. Imho you should try playing 12 tablet and focus more on villain stats, ranges etc.

Hey Kingetje,

CBet Flop IP: 47%
CBet Flop OOP: 57%

July 21, 2018 | 8:45 p.m.

Hi guys,

Villain (368 hh) plays 31/23 with MP open% = 23.
Cbet Flop 53%.
Cbet Turn 75%.

Our odds are 33% vs this psb. Do we have enough equity to defend this gutshot + bdfd?

July 21, 2018 | 8:33 p.m.

Guys do you think that calling flop here is standard?
Would have a raise been better?

Villain (368 hh) plays 31/23 with MP open% = 23.
Cbet 53%, although I think this kind of flop will be cbetted more than 53%, so I thought that calling with an over + gutshot was fine.
Am I wrong?

Thank you in advance.

freenachos thank you, I googled something about 'focus sessions' but I found only 'focus groups' so I partially understand your answer.

July 18, 2018 | 8:55 p.m.

Kalupso Please tell me how to fix this mental leak.

July 18, 2018 | 8:53 p.m.


Pretty sure Stars has NL5 zoom.
I just checked and there's 500+ players playing. That's a lot.

Maybe on I play on and the situation is this:

July 18, 2018 | 8:48 p.m.

Sorry, I wrote it fast and I lied.
Of course has NL5Z, but for some reasons, people play on NL2z and NL10z and nobody plays on NL5z.

July 18, 2018 | 3:57 p.m.

Okay, maybe I should write something about my "poker career".
I used to play on Stars (NL5), but I switched to People's Poker after Stars cut the vip system.
Now I play on this site with a 50% rakeback (that's huge compared to Stars).
However, I wasn't the only reg that switched to People's...the pool is full of regs.
I like a lot playing zoom, but for some reasons that I don't know, doesn't have NL5z, it has only NL2z (I don't think it takes much sense playing that level) and NL10z (I don't wanna play out of my roll).

July 18, 2018 | 1:30 p.m.

Hi guys,

Today I wanna introduce you to an issue that I currently have and I'd like to hear some help from you guys that have experimented this problem.
Basically, when I open the lobby in days which aren't fridays / saturdays / sundays, the site is full of regulars: I have always thought that playing reg vs reg is unprofitable, so I quit the lobby and end up not playing poker that day.
Do you guys think this is a mental issue or am I right with my assuptions?
I understand that playing against competent players makes me a better player, but at the same time I think money will be made against fishes.

Thank you in advance.

July 18, 2018 | 7:31 a.m.

Forget balancing.
Forget double barrels bluff.
Forget all, start value bet big vs these kind of opponents


July 17, 2018 | 8:12 p.m.

Really interesting hand.
Just a quick question: did you move up to NL10z recently or have you played this limit before?
I could be wrong with this assumption but I think that often times, when a regular finds a new player (40 hands means that you have no infos on him) he treats the new player as a fish.
For this reason, I comfortably fold river here as it's less likely that he tried to bluff you without any info.

July 9, 2018 | 2:50 p.m.

Hey Risva,

His 4bet is way too large. Pick a note that he made this size with KK.
If I were you, unless I had a specific info (like the one before) I play my AKs like you did.
If we fold AKs we are basically shoving only KK+ and if villain is a "thinking player" he could easily spot that and starts 4betting you lighter.

July 9, 2018 | 6:46 a.m.

Hey BubbleNed,

Against unknown I prefer a 4bet preflop with a powerful hand such as AK.
On the flop without any infos I fold.

July 9, 2018 | 5:52 a.m.

Especially with the presence of the two fishes, the strategy you should adopt is bet big when you hit, and fold when you don't.
In this case the board isn't wet (rainbow flop) and you should be more inclined to raise to start building the pot.

July 9, 2018 | 5:46 a.m.

Also, PT4 provides a very powerful tool: it's called Leak Analysis.
You can find it following this path:
On PT4 -> View stats -> Leak Tracker -> Run analysis.
