I think 'Mastering small stakes plo' by Fernando Habegger is probably a great book. Haven't read it, but he's a good teacher.

Thanks for your input. Maybe a solver checks this on the flop without any clubs. But aside from the clubs, the board is dry-ish and he's that kind of reg who I don't think dabble in the A-6 range. Giving away free cards is really bad too, we have fewer ways to improve. A standard scenario is; check check flop and check turn, now he can reasonably credibly represent top 2 pair and we're left guessing.

Awesome! You're so good!

Potting that flop represents strength or bare AA. He doesn't have any nutflush draw and very unlikely top set, so the strength he shows comes down to maybe a set or an AQT9 wrap. Seems he's most likely weak, but maybe he has Aces. The spr is really low, I think reshoving is the only play here. Maybe we're flipping versus Aces, not sure, but getting them to fold is a great result! i think you made the only play.

Very well played! That was brilliant!

Lost a little, $60, on tournaments, but the cash game plo5 is going really well, so I'm going to focus on that for a while. Had to take a loan and empty my reserves to be able to buy 'This is PLO', but it's worth so much more. That course will give me a very strong foundation to build on. Downside is that my bank roll is $190;), but I can put in a lot of money monthly, so that's no problem. I'm not gonna go for weekly goals, they are more or less self-fulfilling. My yearly goals are:

  1. Work through the course at least twice
  2. Study 6-max cash games
  3. Study tournement strategy
  4. Have some kind of bankroll on Party
  5. Have a $5k bankroll on Stars
  6. Daily walks firmly established
  7. Keep the alcohol to a minimum, maybe a 0 level is possible?
  8. Start lifting weights. This will be months from now probably
  9. Start loosing weight

I know this is a tall order, but I'm going for what's possible and then multiply that, since I will see even small progress as a victory and not a failure. Stars says I won $6k last year, bet as usual when it comes to me and money I can only remember half of that:). So glad that I now can see a clearly staked out road to walk, Slow and Steady, Patience and Discipline ftw!

Feb. 14, 2022 | 3:10 p.m.

Goals next week:
5-6 study sessions
5-6 walks
5 playing sessions

Hi again!
It's been a while. Started winning when I started playing tourneys in December a little over a year ago. My paranoia over potential rigged sites are more under control. Have just played a lot for a year without studying, but now I'm getting serious again, working through Phil's course This is PLO and have already learned a lot. It seems he has an open road into my brain;). I never understood as good as when he explains. Tonight I made a big 3-bet bluff on the river. I'm really proud of it, some may say I'm crazy. Here it goes:

Villain has played 25/11/0 over 100 hands. But I'd like advice on how to play this if I had no stats on him. Here I think I can bet since he doesn't hit this flop very; think he has mostly KK-TT and premium rundowns. I also have the back door nut flush draw and a few back door straight draws as well.
Turn ($2.53) 5 Q 2 T
MP checks, Hero bets $2.43, MP folds
Looks really scary that T, but the spr is under 2 and it will be very hard to play rivers, so I think it's best to pot. Also he has some flush draws on the flop that we price out.

As always I learn a lot from Phil, thanks for the free show!

Great video! A small point though; Phil for some reason calculated with 2.25% per outs on the turn HU, it's 2.5%. 1/40. Many thanks for the video, so enlightening to hear Phil talk poker!

I agree too, my point was just showing a straight flush losing. I doubt I'll ever see that again. Must be around 1 in 100 million hands or something chance this happens.

We have a pair and 13 outs to the nut straight on a rainbow board. We're not even that far behind a set. I think reshoving the flop is the way to go. I chickened out because of his big flop bet and chickens lose.

I think we want to c-bet here. As you see I think we can call a raise. The spr is a little over 1.5, can we reshove here? If I had AA with hearts I would, but here we don't have any pair and our effective stack is 132bb before calling the raise, so that looks way too much.
Turn ($11.50) 6 3 9 7

Felt like a fish shoving this. His flop raise indicates a wrap, maybe with a flush draw. But he checks behind on this turn so often I want a bet to go in. He may even shut down completely. Maybe we can lead 1/3 of the pot? Maybe his straights will call. But if he has a set, he'll get an easy call. What would Jnandez do?

This is what got me thinking. The SPR is around 1 so I don't think we have enough fold equity. Right now I believe a check behind is best. What do you think?

Comment | ZeroDegrees commented on dominated wrap

I can see other hands raising the flop, sometimes AAxx or KKxx is played this way. Think you're an over-50% favorite in general.

Hi!
I really would like to play in the poker room, but Sweden changed a law this new year, demanding all poker rooms to get a license. Do you have any plans for getting one in the near future or should I abandon all hope?

March 22, 2019 | 4:16 p.m.

I wanna play! But Sweden changed a law so all poker rooms need a license. Do you plan on getting a license or should I abandon all hope?

EDIT just noticed this was an old thread, will try to find another place to post my question

March 22, 2019 | 4:10 p.m.

Thanks for the video! Focusing on just 1 table is essential to me, so these videos are great!
About tagging hands; it's much simpler to just use 1 tag, 'for review' and then tag them in different categories after. It's not like you're going to forget why you tagged them.
Keep fighting Bluechip! With your work ethic I can't see you fail!

Feb. 23, 2019 | 8:51 a.m.

You don't have that much on the flop; bare 2 pairs, no straight draws, just a back door flush draw as back up. I think this is an easy do-not-bet spot 4-way. Check/call must be best.

The King is an alarming card, lots of KK out there. I'm not sure about leading, personally I would go for a check, see what happens, and usually call.

Feb. 17, 2019 | 9:23 a.m.

I think the price is just too juicy. We need to win 1/7 or so. He can have some kind of blockers like KKd. Not often, true, but I would call, even though his sizing scream nuts. But why don't he shove the nut flush on the turn?
