3bet size too small here out of position. Size up if 3betting from the sb. Betting to represent an over pair on this board is not an ideal thought process to have. As opposed to thinking in terms of one hand in isolation, you need to consider how your range does on this board overall. While you do have most of the over pairs here that villain does not, villain also has pairs. This board also interacts well with the ranges that you said you expect villain to have.

Wouldn't flat K10ss in the small blind. 3bet or fold depending on the villain. Vs this short stacked specific villain, I just fold pre. You are not losing value on the turn as you can never raise the turn. And a lead doesn't make sense. Villain is uncapped so can easily have an ace here.

How Can you find out how much total take you've paid since joining?

Not sure I agree with that. You can't assume every player in 2nl is going to have worse than you on that board and then decide never to fold. I agree that it will be a call a lot of the time but I think it's a poor assumption to make overall

Checking the flop here multiway regardless of range advantage and with the fact that you have little to no equity. No spade in your hand. I don't double barrel here as there are now two FDs, straight draw, Ax which villain is probably not folding

Congrats on the promotion Patrick, well deserved.
Hi Mikey, I assume Rio have certain criteria that essential coachs must have prior to reaching the elite status. I'm sure that this is an internal thing so I'm not enquiring about that, but I just thought I would provide an insight from an essential members perspective. There are specific coaches videos here that I would follow on a regular basis, Henry Lister, Peter Clarke and Patrick for example. Who are all excellent and produce great content, which I assume, makes them more likely to be promoted. If/when these pros get promoted to an elite level status, then is there a plan to replace the specific coach? While it's great for the elite level guys, it slightly devalues the essential membership for others. I personally am not in a position to purchase an elite level membership and I would assume that is the same for others.
I don't want this to be a negative post as I really enjoy being a member here so I'm hoping it won't be taken that way.
I'm wondering is there something that RIO could do, like allowing essential members access to that specific coachs new videos for a set period or something to that effect. Perhaps from an administrative point of view its not that simple but just thought I'd give my two cents.

I think check calling the turn is preferable. Villain could check a lot of Jx here stronger than yours. When he checks here in position, unless he's particularly weak or has a hand with absolutely no equity, I think he has SDV a lot of the time and we're value owning ourselves

'Villain bets 18.25sek into a 43.30sek pot.I got 209sek behind. And i decide to go for a flop Raise 2.5x'. This reads as if you check raised flop. I think your prob right about the bluff jamming turns. I think if I bet one third here I jam river.

What's the rationale for the 1/3 pot bet on the turn? I don't know the answer in this spot but I'm not sure if the third pot sizing makes sense in this spot once you check raise the flop. I agree that his overpairs have a horrible time here in general but do you plan on shoving the river if he calls the turn?
Dec. 17, 2019 | 12:46 p.m.
For me this is entirely opponent dependant. Against weak passive players this may be a fold but in this pool you'll often find aggro recs that just lead on this river to rep a ten even if they have two pair with an 8.the concept of SDV never crosses their minds. Largely folding unless you have a read that villain is aggro

If he has AA then he's blocking the A hitting on the turn. If he's raising UTGs donk lead with a player behind he is very strong here and you have two outs less to hit your straight if you make the assumption he has AA. If you have 6 outs to improve, you have roughly 26 percent equity to make your hand. The call requires roughly 28 percent.

I cbet this board with my range here and barrel the turn. Give up river unimproved. As hes likely a weak player limping and has some sort of marginal king he won't fold. He could have limp called a strong hand but as played its unlikely. Prob a good fold on the turn
Dec. 16, 2019 | 1 p.m.
Villain very likely has an overpair here. BB donks and he raises. What hands would he raise here as a bluff with another player behind? My guess is he only does this with over pairs in this specific spot so can just fold here imo
