Bro u must be super nit to just call with this hand :p,
Against idiots like this its very difficult to know whether its a trap or small blocking bet, I think he would do this with any flush, deuce, deuces full

with the style u play, what is your zoom 50PLO winrate?

Oct. 29, 2014 | 11:37 a.m.

just believe me my friend there is no decent lag, tag in 25PLO, no offense but its just the fact

Oct. 18, 2014 | 11:35 a.m.

Jamming turn is gonna be disaster, just call and decide on the river. If he has a made hand most river card is somewhat scary for him, which is very good for you. You gonna lose small money to his sets, and u already got value from his other hands. Because he would play pretty straight forwand on the river, he probably bet big every card that improves him (probably every broadway card and 5 maybe 6) and check the rest. U should only hero call Q because its just physically impossible to fold :)

Oct. 18, 2014 | 11:33 a.m.

I pretty sure this guy would never bluff barrel because its a good board for his range, like 47/34 guy is capable of thinking that way :)

I definitely should've bet bigger, but I usually cbet smallish on many flops. In this case, against 2 people it probably doesn't matter anyway. Button calls my cbet, so I put him on mostly bare flush draw or some wrap without flush draw.
Turn ($26.00) 3 (2 Players)
Hero bets $15, BN raises to $30, Hero raises to $45, BN calls $15
turn is really interesting spot, its like a bubble in the tournament
Neither of us have many 3s or boats in our range, by doing this he's even more likely to have a draw (just my opinion).

what would u do?

River ($131.00) 6 (2 Players)
Hero bets $76.10, and is all in, BN folds
I shoved the river because

1st, I really can't fold in this spot, I'm gonna lose to 83xx or 63xx anyway and he won't bluff shove his airs if I check

2nd, I might get a call from trips or make him fold the same straight

what do u think is this too thin and optimistic?

Final Pot
Hero wins $110.68
how would u play this hand?
does my play ev+?

Oct. 16, 2014 | 8:35 p.m.


Maybe because of this kind of situation, its probably best to fold pre. But as a default would u openfold this hand from mp?

Oct. 12, 2014 | 11:12 a.m.

I don't have any reads on villian, 

Problem is our equity will depends on how often my opponent have a nut flush draw. We are flipping against his made hands but doing terrible if he happened to have some kind of nut flush draw which we will induce with our xraise, 

simply I kinda lost between 2 opposite decisions

1) because we have a non-nutty combo draws, we wanna xraise and GII otf?

2) because lot of my opponents stack off range will absolutely crush us, we shouldn't GII otf?


I usually fold when I'm not sure about the situation, maybe its bad fold I don't know but we only have few nut out, so it seems like we just drawing to bluff catcher?

I have 2 question

1) what is the best play otf? at first it seemed like an good spot to xraise but lot of hands will dominate my hand right? and if he calls my raise, turn spr is kinda ugly

2) if he bet like 7~8$, is this easy fold?

10:09 table 2, would u raise against cbet?

Sept. 2, 2014 | 5:57 a.m.

3:50 do u open all double pairs from mp?

7:16 top right: [Q973ss] is this bottom of your range to call 3bet? 

July 24, 2014 | 6:22 a.m.

well save it for little higher stakes

1st: u will almost never gonna get 4bet, these people do dumb stuff but not gonna 4bet against bb's 3bet

2nd: play most of your single suited aces (of course not AAJTss) passive oop and try to get to the river if u have decent draw u will gonna get paid very often, it will minimize your losses on bad boards, plus most cbettors give up on the turn a lot and having initiative is not that important

July 24, 2014 | 5:02 a.m.

I see what u saying, but believe me it doesn't work like that in 10PLO :)

July 24, 2014 | 3:40 a.m.

don't squeeze with this hand oop in this stake

dry board + standard cbet and get called, I thought he probably raise me with J4+, so I put him on weak jack type of hand. 76** is possible but most of the time he cant have naked oesd, and he probably raise those hands, plus I have 6 blocker
Turn ($25.10) 3 (2 Players)
Hero bets $17.50, BN calls $17.50
Turn bet is questionable, its probably one of my leaks, in a spot like this I usually try to find a reason to bet. I can't x/call, check/fold is an option, but I decided to represent straight. Against random opponent in zoom game would you do this?

Again he called, now its very likely he got flush draw too. For some reason I didn't really gave him A2 type of hand.
River ($60.10) 7 (2 Players)

I got lucky, but surprisingly he called my river shove too. I was planning to shove blank rivers but that would've been disastrous result. Apparently my reads were wrong. I got couple of questions.

1. What do u think my thought process and play?

2. Am I being too aggressive in a spot like this and is it much better to just give up on the turn?

3. If you were in his shoes, what type of hand you might have?

Comment | anxaas commented on PLO100: AAxx in SB

I won't bet turn, if he calls your cbet, he would never fold to your turn bet.

And why wouldn't u call river with 2pair? calling cbet on KT3 and betting on backdoor straight river doesn't make much sense. 

July 14, 2014 | 4:36 p.m.

hehe... thats actually why I called, an guy showed up AQQ8 with spades :)

I know it's one of those inevitable spots u just have to go with it but I had this sick feeling in my gut that I might have beat

July 12, 2014 | 9:28 p.m.

don't u think there are way more combos of QQ**, because other 2cards can be random but Q2, J2 can't have 2random cards

flopped the nuts :), HJ cbets 1/2 to 3people. Does it represent strength?
Turn ($14.00) Q (2 Players)

now, I got this feeling the guy made queens full, but would he bet the flop with QQ**? his flop cbet doesn't really represent strength so its definitely possible.

I thought unless the guy is complete idiot, he wouldn't bet the river with trips. He must have fullhouse in this spot. But there are not a lot of combinations of Q2**, J2** in peoples HJ range right?
And his turn and river bet was real quick, like he doesn't even thinking about it. My gut said to me fold but how could I fold this hand. Would u go with your instinct and make big laydown?

July 12, 2014 | 6:51 a.m.

what I'm trying to say is that should I 4bet all aces even if spr allow me to shove otf? 

Does all aces qualify for this play? I'm wondering some aces might be unprofitable to play like this.

July 11, 2014 | 10:55 a.m.

oh I didn't know that, so what about AAK7r or AA92ss? still profitable to 4bet? 

I read the analysis that it's profitable only if u consider all aces, but do u think it will be more profitable to exclude some bad aces? I thought these aces might be reducing overall winrate of this play

Everyone knows this is a standard play, if u can put 1/3 of your stack with aces preflop, u just do it. But recently I've been wondering does this play really applies to bad~weak aces? Of course this is not the worst aces out there, but it is definitely weak one. In this particular hand I got enough equity even against QJ** otf , but overall does 4betting marginal aces really worth it (specially unsuited ones)?

I don't know math behind this play, maybe considering the times your opponent folds it could be slightly EV+ plus play, but every time I do this it feels wrong like I'm overplaying or something.
This hand might not be the ideal hand to discuss because other players might come along but I think its safe to assume they will fold most of the time ...

what if sb folded?

July 7, 2014 | 5:06 a.m.

random question, do u live in Chicago? I just assumed u play at pokerstars, which site do u play?

July 2, 2014 | 11:52 p.m.

I don't like your 3bet, pot is already heads up and it's really unnecessary, plus your opponent seems like sticky in 3bet pot. OTF I would rather x/c because our hand is not in a good shape against his gii range even if he is aggro type, best case scenario would be flip. If he calls our cbet we can't barrel profitably on lot of turns.

turn check jam is actually reasonable option, but I don't think he will stab with diamonds on this turn that often, if he stabs and calls our xjam he will put us on straight so those gii type of hands will crush us so bad. So x/c seems like best option, plus u might convince him that we are on a flush draw or something.

I think he'll always check back top set against 2people, maybe he'll bet to defend against straight draws but its very unlikely, so betting is way better choice.


I think u playing too scared in this spot, u just losing value since competent opponents never pay u off. bb's bet looks like he got some kind of made hand and trying to figure out where he stand, so if you xraise pot, its easy decision he'll always fold unless he's on tilt, plus u might make him fold some small flushes and scare away btn, I rather raise standard 3x or maybe little smaller!?. If one of them has set and boat up otr okey just be it, since its very unlikely and we never pay them off.
