23% donkbet is not wide enough to make a raise good on flop, river push is spewing a lot, you won't get called by worse, probably won't fold out many better.

usually when people talk about buy ins it's a 100big blinds buy in. If you assume you are a winning player it is best to buy in as big as possible since you can than make the most from the other guy:)

Comment | braampje commented on Folding Quads?

guess He is only repping one hand... you're my hero if you did actually fold here:)

Is it just me who doesn't understand what you are doing?

Comment | braampje commented on PLO 50 flop spot

i would say this is a very easy fold against a bet and a raise, more interesting would be what we would do with A6. Here you are never getting it in good, especially with you yet to act BB is showing a lot of strength here.

Comment | braampje commented on PLO100 D,A line check

why would you ever bet 1/3 pot on this turn? don't really see any arguments in favor of this?

Oct. 23, 2013 | 11:05 a.m.

think you played it fine, don't see any reason to bluff river. if you were up to 125ish BB deep I would probably raise flop.

Comment | braampje commented on Checking back flops

The best hands to check back, are hands with lots of potential, but which are weak right now, you would hate to get x/r off your hand and there is a decent number of turns on which you improve. on the other hand, I would cbet hands that don't have much potential, but do have some strength already. Actually Zenfish wrote a really nice blog about which hands to bet on a paired board in which he explains a few concepts on how to build our cbet range in general as well.

I would say that at least you need to put some pressure on him somewhere during the hand, guess there are arguments for both flop and turn, but just calling and folding when missed is too weak. Plus your flop and turn raising ranges will become very made hand heavy if your never raising your draws, making it easy to play against you.

Oct. 23, 2013 | 10:33 a.m.

I would say your W$SD is too low so you should probably lower your WTSD, since it is low stakes that probably means you need to fold more marginal spots.

Oct. 23, 2013 | 10:28 a.m.

Would you still be thinking against 70/10 players about GTO?

Oct. 23, 2013 | 10:22 a.m.

yeah that was my reasoning as well, but since there are quite a few bad turn cards, what do you think of x/r this flop?

we do need some middle cards, but since our range is pretty tight here, we don't need so much that we need to play this hand, there are enough more connected hands that we can use for this purpose.

Oct. 18, 2013 | 10:56 a.m.

yeah IP I can see this, but we are Out position here

Oct. 17, 2013 | 12:07 p.m.

Love argument A and C overbet, but B is kinda weird, we are actually having less air because we don't have many value hands, so saying that again is a reason to value bet less doesn't make sense. we could just also up our bluff frequency and still keep our value:bluff ratio near optimal.

Oct. 17, 2013 | 10:12 a.m.

I don't see the 3bet?

ugly spot, but against unknown on kinda dry board you played it fine I guess. Only hand you were beating was the wrap and that just got there so easy fold on turn. I would need some read that he is shoving any 2 pair to get this in.

Oct. 17, 2013 | 9:58 a.m.

with the deeper stack behind you the flop can only be a call otherwise it was an easy GII on the flop.

Oct. 17, 2013 | 9:51 a.m.

would you guys play it the same if we wouldn't have the flushdraw as well?

Oct. 16, 2013 | 2:39 p.m.

yeah I would say that with made hands on drawy boards you either wan't to get in almost all the money or nothing at all.

Oct. 16, 2013 | 2:37 p.m.

you are saying this isn't the best flop since it hits SB range better, so I understand we can't cbet air too much here, but this hand is not air right? so why would that argument hold here?

I do agree this is probably a check, since villain c/r is 20% which seems quite high. Indicating we are probably folding away too much equity here some part of the time vs villain. 

I guess you do have to call this turn as this is probably quite high in your check back range, and you would be folding too much if you are already folding overpairs against 1 bet here. 

Oct. 16, 2013 | 2:35 p.m.

Nice posts! I agree with both your logics, but feel like it is way more likely that we can check through our overpair on the river when we bet this turn, realizing our equity if villain misses. 

I was betting the turn mainly to get value from draws here, I thought we were ahead of his calling range, but not completely sure about this.

Oct. 15, 2013 | 10:48 a.m.

your folding your button opens to 3bets 42% seems high to me yeah. why would you twice with this hand here? seems like an easy flop fold you don't really have any draws or made hand here...

Oct. 14, 2013 | 9:03 p.m.

I think calling must be worst option here, pushing or folding would be the question for me. where folding is probably best.

Comment | braampje commented on Calling 3 bets

what do you think of overcalling 3bets IP? your more or less likely to fold hands like T988ss vs HU

I think c/c is better, as said only hands he might fold that beat you are J7/K7 and I can see him calling with those a decent %. x/decide would probably be a call as he probably isn't valuebetting K7 here and can't have much better.

Comment | braampje commented on Donk OTF 2nd NFD

yeah I agree that  this flop is actually a very good example that 3betting this hand is not great

Oct. 14, 2013 | 11:08 a.m.

yeah obviously agree with your SPR argumentation, but not sure if the SPR 4 or 5 here is in the range where it will make a difference. That's what I ment
