Comment | Simplifier commented on A Poker Site Should

Can we please have some updates? It's almost the end of Q1 2017 and we haven't heard from you guys in months. While I agree that overhyping something is not a good idea, letting the hype die completely isn't a good idea either. Will we see RiO poker come out this year? How's the development process going? Tell us something, anything.

Doug Polk and Tollerene play eachother at 500/1000 nlcap on opening day. That's my suggestion.

Comment | Simplifier commented on AA vs KK how often?

You calculate it in the following way. You get kings once in 220 hands, someone else gets AA once in 220 hands. Assuming you open KK utg in a 6 max game you have 5 players behind you so the chance for someone having Aces is 220/5 = 44. Whenever you have kings there's a 1/44 chance someone has AA in a 6max game. In a fr game its 220/8 which is 27.5. To see how often in general does KK vs AA happen just multiply your opponents chance of having Aces with your chance of having kings. 220x44 or 220x27.5 which is 9680 hands for 6max and about 6000 hands for fullring. If my math is off please correct me.

I'd like to address a subject that I haven't seen anyone discussing, atleast not on this website. This subject is in my opinion one of great significance, the 2016 american presidential elections. With the electoral process being now over, what will the election of Donald Trump mean for the future of online poker in the United States? He has been known for playing his share in the casino business, do you think that will mean progress for the online situation or the contrary?

My pleasure. And remember you can't control life, but you can control how you react to it.

This reminded me of those hot girls who post pictures with captions like "I'm so ugly". Judging by the graphic i think everyone can say , including yourself, that you're doing it the right way. Variance just works against you at the moment. That graph could turn overnight into a one expressing massive wins ( here you go i validated your work :* ). Keep playing the best you possibly can, play because you love being right and money is going come on its own. If you need something to calm yourself and up your focus, you should look into Holosync. Those are some audioprograms used for meditation , which will help you disconnect. Also taking a break could help. But know that it is mandatory that you fill the time in this break with positive experiences , the ones that can make you very happy, ecstaticly happy. Focus on girls, go party more and crazier try new experiences and when you'll return to poker you wont even care about the fact that you were on a downswing before you left.

Many people having more experience in poker than i have say use the anger and disappointment to improve yourself , make whatever you want out of this.

Also i think each poker player should come to appreciate the downswings, because they are what drives us forward . When you are faced with adversity you tend to look for the smallest imaginable things you could improve, unlike when you're on an upswing and everything you do wins you money. I believe the strenght of a poker player and the true pride come from how many downswings he has defeated. Keep your spirit up and KNOW that when you WILL come out of this hole, you will be stronger than you have ever been before and then feel proud.

P.S. i wish i would follow my own advices some time

I'd check raise the flop, but thats just me.

I agree. There are so many offtopic and stupid discussions going on there.

yea it was great, RIO has really grown into a great community

To be honest i don't understand what you were adressing me. Were you scolding me for something i didn't say or were you agreeing with what i said? Because what i said was " Since we've agreed is pretty unlikely he'll call you with underpairs he must be folding some of his strong hands like AA KK QQ(just 1 combo left) TT, AQ ,KQ for your shove to make sense. From what i know it's a popular trend for people to not fold top pairs and overpairs in 3b pots," meaning villain is unlikely to fold those. And then i said this in the ending "Considerable options are calling like Samu said and for some reason my gut tells me folding could also be considered, even though it just seems so weird."

Preflop is too loose and bet bigger on the turn. After he raises call with the plan of calling again otr on most runouts.

April 3, 2015 | 10:44 p.m.

Judging by the stack sizes we can make the assumption that CO and BTN are fishes. With that being said i think it's a pretty clear value shove ott and hero is not trying to get folds.

April 3, 2015 | 10:01 p.m.

It's alright by me, nh.

Zoom player pool is very tight, know this before joining the game. Tight-ish preflop and really tight postflop. Knowing this the call preflop seems loose without specific information about your opponent. By specific i mean , how he plays on different board texture, how widely he is value betting how wide he's bluffing and how likely he is to fold to future bluffs (which are necessary to make a call w/ KQo oop profitable, since you're not going to have nutted hands very often) "I find it really difficult to defend % enough so he cant auto profit though.." You find it difficult to defend enough because it is without specific info, that's why you shouldn't call preflop, you could consider 4betting w/ blockers and folding.

OTT you can't expect "value" b/c it really looks like you can't have air, it looks like your range is made out of QQ TT( i don't think 44 55 QT are good 3b calls oop in zoom) and medium strength hands turned into bluffs, that's why idk if he could call you with worse i.e. bluffcatching JJ. Now, 99+,A9s+,KJs+,AJo+,KQo, this could be a 3b range from the button, it could be wider , it could be tigher , it depends on the player. Since we've agreed is pretty unlikely he'll call you with underpairs he must be folding some of his strong hands like AA KK QQ(just 1 combo left) TT, AQ ,KQ for your shove to make sense. From what i know it's a popular trend for people to not fold top pairs and overpairs in 3b pots, he might be folding AQ,KQ without fd, but i don't think he's going to fold overpairs and sets.TBH i don't think you were expecting him to fold those either, i think you probably considered that his range is so wide you're going to make money when he folds his dbl barrels, but i don't think zoom ranges are wide enough for profit to be made that way.

TBH i don't like the shove, i don't like the call b/c we don't know enough about him and i don't like the fold b/c if we got here it just doesn't seem right. It's an odd spot generated by a call preflop made without enough info. Considerable options are calling like Samu said and for some reason my gut tells me folding could also be considered, even though it just seems so weird. When you're calling OTT you're calling most rivers as well, probably not rivers like the one that just came, but most of them. And you're going to lose most of the times you call, i haven't run any math but depending on his range you could be breakeven+ or losing the least, by the call line.

I think you've overplayed it. Personally if i check the flop, i check to call, b/c if he bets and he has value we're either way behind , or we're ahead but he has some equity (87) and if he's bluffing, with your raise you get him to fold those bluffs which isn't good. Better play would be check call flop ,check shove turn if you think he's bluffy. You need to look for the smaller things, he's not even full stacked, which means he's probably a fish. Against a fish (or weak reg/tight fish) i think we should cbet this and continue from that line.

Comment | Simplifier commented on River spot vs Fish

he is playing 72/40 and you're wondering if he has KQo?

On 558 hands BU plays 23/20 , agg factor 2,8, 3bet 8, fold to cbet 33.

River ($3.57) 8 8 8 4 Q

What could he be possibly raising here as a bluff or for value besides quads. Given his 3bet stat i expect him to 3bet KK AA QQ against me although he might try to be tricky.

He raises this river quite large considering the lack of action of the previous streets. Could he be dumb enough to check raise a King here?
