Hey Steve. Nice video. Not sure you'll see this message as it's been a couple of weeks since you posted it but do you have a video where you show how you have incorporated the RNG or can explain it simply here. Nice one

No stats as playing on party and had the villain labeled as super aggro, at least at the time. I think against any other opponent then this would be a mandatatory fold preflop but this guy had been aggresive for a while and I felt it was just 'too good' to fold at the time. OOP it would be an easy muck, but in position against an aggresive laggy fish I think I could justify a call.
When villain bets 1/4 pot on a 2 flush board, my instinct is that it's normally incredibly weak. This guy could have 78s,JTs etc etc. Having the backdoor nut flush and the backdoor straight draw, I felt it was just enough to continue, looking to make moves on certain turns and put underpairs to the test.
When the 3c comes on the turn I was in too minds on what to do after his 1/4 bet yet again. I simply dont think many decent Ax hands would bet this small again, maybe just AA and AK that I block. Initially I thought raising was mandatory but maybe not after I have thought about it more and with us getting just about the correct odds. Anyway I raised but the sizing gave me problems away from the table. Smaller or just jamming? seeing as I would probably would be commited if I came in for a raise, depending on what I made it.
Eitherway I just decided to ship it to get folds from all his underpairs, and maybe even some of his weaker A highs.
Would love to hear peoples thoughts

Would be interesting to here you responses. CC 56s on the BTN seems a little loose for me but I feel I can make it protifable with my 'post flop edge'. Villian appears to be a semi aggresive calling station. Really doesn't like the fold button. When he checks raises I see him having mainly overcards/big overpairs, also I wouldn't be surprise to see some random bluffs as well. I would not expect him to show up with many other flush draws myself as most villains at these stage would be their flush draws. I am obviously not sure whether I should simply call the raise or just go with it on the flop. I am not doing too badly vs 88+, even adding nut flush draws amoungst them and my equity is lookig relatively solid. Anyway would like to here your thoughts.
Also does anyone know how to actually post hands into the hand history section> Doesn't seem to like my hands from HM3

Hey peeps, haven't posted a hand in a while so thought this was an interesting spot. No info on villain as I play at PP and have no notes.
I think the key takeaway here is that villains rarely triple barrell at the lower stakes, and if they do I tend to take a note straight away. The only problem is that I really don't have many other better hands that I could call here apart from 88 and possibly KQs that may have decided to call twice but that is very unlikely.
Would like to hear peoples thoughts on the spot.
(sorry couldn't get the real HH review thing to work, anyone have a clue how to import from HH3/PP to make it work?

Any you would recommend? Haven't dived into solvers yet but I guess I might as well invest

The sizing isn't over important in context to what I am asking. It's a 3bet pot and we have hit that flop with this range. The question is what does our cbet strategy look like..
June 28, 2018 | 8:44 a.m.
Cheers for the info. I was more interested in what my cbet strategy would be, my initial range can always be open to debate but it's what I roughly worked out using a cbet sizing of villain 2.5x and us raising to 8bb getting it in with TT+ I believe (can't quite remember so that's worth another look on my part)
And yeah that is indeed Poker Ranger and nah I'm not part of Upswing although I do follow and have great respect to Doug Polk. Most of my learning comes from The Grinder Manual by Peter Clarke and I highly advise a purchase!

Hey guys. So I'm trying to build myself a cbet strategy against an average reg in a 3bet pot when we are in the SB and the villain has called in the CO. I will elect to not having any calling range in the SB for this example.
Preflop Polar 3bet
Hero holds KK
Villains raises 2.5x from the CO
Hero raises to 8bb
Flop comes down AQx
This is my rough cbet strategy for the given situation.
The Red is cbet value
Green is check/call
Blue is cbet as bluff (only with backdoor flush draws)
Yellow is check/fold
I'm not great with the math side of this and how balanced this approach really is but would love to hear peoples thoughts and how I can improve. Nice one

SB: $5.35 (Hero)
BB wins and shows a flush, Ace high.
BB wins $10.40
Rake is $0.45

CO: $7.56 (Hero)
BB (26/21 over 19 hands) could have a wide range obviously. Something like A9o+, 22+, suited aces/kings/connectors and most broadways
When the BB raises you would have to give him a range of TPGK type hands, flopped 2 pair, flush draws and sets, of which there is only 6.
Re raising might get all worse to fold and only keep in the 2 pair and sets. Maybe weak TP hands could call a shove? I once again elect to call .
I lose to all sets and 2 pairs and flush draws have decent equity against me.
The maths shows I need roughly 33% equity to make this call. If I give him all flushdraws that I beat and then 2 pairs/sets and some TP that I beat then I only manage to get to around 32% equity. Adding all the random offsuit Aces and suited aces into the mix then It would be a clear call but I don't think many people would be checking raising them into 2 players.
March 8, 2018 | 1:49 p.m.
BB: $5.00 (Hero)
March 5, 2018 | 2:24 p.m.
BB: $6.94 (Hero)
However their stack is $2.95 so I assume they are a weaker player.
3bet for value
CO wins $7.48
Rake is $0.32

Sadly you are wrong and he's absolutely right. As people have mentioned before, you can get enough info from one hand let alone 32. Obviously not a vast amount of date sometimes enough to sway a decision.
Feb. 23, 2017 | 4:35 p.m.
Raise more from UTG. 2x is too low.
I would bet/call as I don't want to give any club draws a free card and you can get called by a a pretty wide range. Yes getting raised kinda sucks but you can call and go from there. Also no info on villain so you can't assume that 'we're going to get raised here pretty often'
-After x/c then I think you have to play it how it was as villain could have missed draws. TT/JJ even.
Most important thing here is to raise larger pre and not assume we are going to get raised on this board often...especially with no reads
