I have seen lots of hands by Linus so Im pretty sure its him. Other human players seems bad, from what ive seen so far

July 19, 2019 | 10:48 a.m.

if he's squeezing linear and go like 88/99+, all suited broadways etc., when for sure I would shove hands like A5s, A4s etc. with decent frequency

July 18, 2019 | 1:23 p.m.

if he would go 14bb's+ not having flat range and shoving whole continue range make sense I think

July 18, 2019 | 12:57 p.m.

Given 11x over 2.5x we want to have calls imo, it depends on what sb squeeze range is if it's polar or linear, he has flatting range or not etc. Against totally unknowns I tend to choose safer option and 4bet AK, KK or QQ+

July 18, 2019 | 12:55 p.m.

what do u want to know? 4bet size, preflop ranges?

July 18, 2019 | 12:36 p.m.

BTN open 2.5x, SB call, Pluribus on BB call.
Flop: 6s Js Ad, Pluribus lead 2x pot with 67o bdfd.. o.o

July 18, 2019 | 12:20 p.m.

River off suit K:
Linus shove and Pluribus fold.

There’s bunch of nuts in oop range, so AA gets quite thin because of xr threat, in practice I think people will under raise, so you can get away with thiner value bets

July 17, 2019 | 1:52 p.m.

I would never consider folding against 5bet shove, but this click back thing got me concerned that it's only AA and maybe KK. But I probably agree that it is over adjustment having no strong reads

July 16, 2019 | 2:52 p.m.

I agree with most, but if he would try to balanced this sizing he would be trying to make other parts of my range indifferent, because I'm just always happily calling QQ to shove here, so he is either 5betting merged or polarized to make some of my bluffs indifferent, so QQ is either winning decent amount or losing decent amount I guess, but I haven't seen anybody doing that so it's very likely losing, on the other hand folding QQ's 100bb's deep HU feels really crazy

July 15, 2019 | 5:02 p.m.

Yes, I was holding table and he joined so we played couple hands. Problem with this hand is not that I lost but that it’s triggering tilt and it’s becoming a pattern when villain using sub-optimal strategy against me, for ex. “milking” me, so I’m trying to find technical solutions to those situations

SB (Hero): $50.00 (100 bb)
BB: $50.75 (102 bb)

Pre-Flop: ($0.75) Hero is SB with Q♥ Q♣
Hero raises to $1.21, BB 3-bets to $5.40, Hero 4-bets to $13.33, BB 5-bets to $25.66, Hero 6-bets to $50 (all-in), BB calls $24.34

Villain is weak reg, don't have much history with him. My approach to the game sort of trap me here as I feel like ''I can't fold'', so then villain ofc shows up with AA it triggers tilt pretty bad. What would you do in this spot?

July 15, 2019 | 12:08 p.m.

Ended first half of the month quite bad, will take today off and will start grinding hard from tomorrow. Pool so far is really great, but big pots didn't go my way, ended up losing money when I did 4bet, so my luck faded already :/ I'm quite happy about my results given how I ran, and hope to make some money in second half of month:)
Goal till the end of month: 30k+ hands.

If I understand these situations correctly, on this board x/r ranges are too polarized to raise bottom pair, it mostly raise them on boards where a lot of merged x/r'ing happening. Mostly low, not too connected boards, where any flopped pair has quite a bit of ev, but requires a lot of protection, so It x/r some bottom pairs (mostly with decent back up equity) for value/protection/board coverage/equity denial and to sometimes turn it into a multi street bluff

July 13, 2019 | 7:26 p.m.

I've ran a sim on this one as well, both turn and river calls are losing on my sim

July 13, 2019 | 6:44 p.m.

are all hands played at 100bb's deep?

July 13, 2019 | 11:44 a.m.

I would guess so

July 11, 2019 | 6:52 p.m.

I think 35-40% Dcb OOP is somewhat optimal, probably in 200-500z regs exploitatively going for higher Dcb because people don't defend their range optimally witch not necessary the case at 5k nl+

Comment | PrankCallRiver commented on 4Bet Ranges

My thinking behind A9o 4bets is that I want to have few 9x in 4bet range for board coverage, but that's probably not all that relevant

Atleast games are super soft, I expect to have atleast 8-9bb/100 in long run, I would say games in 50nl new site atleast twice softer than 25nl on PP, but no rakeback tho

Post | PrankCallRiver posted in NLHE: 4Bet Ranges

I'm building 4bet ranges, and I would like to get some feedback on them. What ratio bluffs to value we should aim for? I build ranges who are around 1:1 ratio atm, is that correct?
There's my ranges so far.
UTG/MP 4bet range:

CO 4bet range vs BTN and SB:

BTN 4bet vs SB:

SB 4bet vs BB:

Any observations?

July 10, 2019 | 5:46 p.m.

Yeah, but most games running are NL/PLO mix, so it's not great, I might play some if I knew how to play plo

July 10, 2019 | 5:35 p.m.

Nothing special, filter small pots in hm and reviewing with pio, node locking etc..

July 8, 2019 | 12:54 p.m.

I'm back grinding. 50z, also got 4th in tourney for 1k usd, got some bad luck on FT but cant complain I guess. me on upswing;))

After one vid calling him a best instructor “by far” is laughable and disrespectful to other coaches

July 5, 2019 | 3:04 p.m.

If I’m correct Paid_To_Laid guy do coaching, one of the best price I’ve seen actually

June 26, 2019 | 12:13 p.m.

That’s pretty sick wr from sb, I didn’t think that’s achievable. Over what sample tho?

June 25, 2019 | 10:48 p.m.

Or they just don t play online at all which is probably what happens more often then not

That's a guess, I don't think it's true.

Saying that Pokerstars allows HUDs and is therefore the market leader is absurd.

That's not my point, my point is that if recreational players would treat huds as a cheat they would leave the site, and hudless sites would have took the lead long time ago.

You can not stop players from sharing their databases with eachother. There are stables which basically hire data analysts to go through their collective databases in order to find population and player specific exploits. If you are not on their team they are basically colluding vs the rest of the player pool.

I agree that it's not fair, but I don't think banning huds is best solution. ''In GTO world'' poker sites should collaborate with government and botting, colluding, sharing/buying HH's etc. should be treated as a robbery, I think that would put some pressure on online poker ''gangsters'', so before doing something illegal they would think twice if they want to risk to spend couple of months in jail by trying basically rob money from people.

Ok and so if they dont want to learn how to use the 3rd party software they should just keep playing live where they are comfortabe?

I just think huds should be treated as a element of online poker. I don't see why we should compare live and online poker as they're two very different environments, a lot of recreational players play live because this is just a way for them to relax, communicate etc., that doesnt mean they will like to play online, and that doesnt necessary mean huds has any influence on that.

That great, then now you can get your wish and play against only the winning players spending a lot of $$ on the latest tracking software.

That's of course a problem that you have to spend money to increase your edge by buying better trackers, but once again I don't think banning huds is best solution. I think banning 3rd party huds are a good idea, if poker sites would make a free hud option on their software

June 22, 2019 | 4:44 p.m.

feels like very underbluffed spot otr when flush completes, it's close against strong player I think, but against 43 WWSF guy it's pretty easy fold imo
