Comment | best27 commented on hero call w/ 77

I would not call here, if he checks turn after betting flop seems like hes got some showdown value weak Ace, jj-kk a ten! The ace is the perfect scare card to barrel with a bluff or any draw

The rake is something u have to think about,plo is raked much worse than no limit!unless u got a bankroll to start at midstakes it's going to be tough going

Post | best27 posted in Chatter: New RIO Layout

Thought id make a thread with any problems regarding the new layout with Run it Once, on the whole looks very good but couple problems I've encountered.

I cant seem to view all comments on threads or videos just the top couple, cant scroll down them and maximize a video to full screen isn't working, I much prefer the video central like before than to the left hand side of the screen.

Comment | best27 commented on Ergonomic Eyewear?

I use get really bad eye flicker and red eyes when grinding, flux didn't seem to help too much, then got Gunnars Jigsaw onyx to wear with flux and can grind no trouble now, id recommend!

nice video Akira, at 26.25 u 3 bet aj and say its a loose 3 bet, I like the 3 bet any better ace most likely would jam and u put him in an awkard situation with his stack size, is it just because its pre antes ud prefer a fold and wot wud u do with a10 suited and a j suited, thanks

Comment | best27 commented on standard shove??

yeh I think standard was the wrong term but in this situation being on the bubble, 3 reshove stacks behind I just think it folds out a lot of there reshove range. I also noticed the replayer hasn't included the antes which would make it slightly more profitable id imagine. btw I got called out the sb with 55 which I dint expect,cheers for the comments all.

Hi akira, nice video at min 24.15 u folded a6 to a button open, do u never 3 bet fold these type of hands from the sb as better aces would generally get it in pre so would be ahead his flatting range? what hands do u prefer to 3bet from a button open?thanks 

Aug. 22, 2013 | 3:31 a.m.

U mean rush right?agreed that tilt needs sort it's plo volume,wen they reintroduce black card I wana try grind on tilt but there's just not enuf traffic at plo to achieve it

Comment | best27 commented on To loose play from CO?

ur 3bet is fine as ur isolating a weaker player id make it bigger tho,I think u have to bet the flop a heavy part of ur 3 betting range is aaxx if u check back with flush draws and straight draws on this board ur basically sayin I dnt have a hand that can withstand much heat on later streets,i would 3/4 bet flop then again on all brick turns and maybe check back river because i cant see villain calling with worse at that point.

Post | best27 posted in PLO: Holdem manager at plo25

whats anyones opinion on holdem manager/pokertracker stats at plo25,ive got the holdem version and will get the plo if just to review hands and  track results but are the stats a must have as well at this level,if u have a decent tagging system in place.From my experience villains rarely bluff if they do they get tagged. Also villains that 3 bet a range that isnt aaxx get tagged different.Would u not need a really big sample on players compared to holdem just because of the combos of hands?

Comment | best27 commented on How to take shots
hey Nic i think u have to get as much as u can in on the flop,say the two villians check behind the turn which they could easily do,they could both just have a flush draw where they got each others outs check behind the turn then fold the river and u win a tiny pot,also with the possibility of them havin two pairs lower sets i think u gotta get it in or as much as possible.I play plo25 and try to play a low variance style but this is too far i think.good luck with the shot tho bud

Post | best27 posted in PLO: what to do next?

Basically looking for a bit of advice I can play plo for 30 - 40 hrs a week and wondered what ppl thought the best way to make some money out the game is,I have a job so this isnt my only income.I recently just finished a reload bonus at a european site and dnt know what my next step should be i currently have a $700 roll,the site is super soft at plo 25 but struggles for traffic at the times i can play,I six table and the rakeback is a pathetic 4% and only rises to 9% at the next level,should I join a diff site like an ipoker skin and grind the welcome bonus or go dwn the stars route which has plenty traffic but bad rake and id imagine harder competition.

Thanks for any feedback
