This is a board that should be bet big very infrequently by BB, also seeing that we have more 88 and other pair+straight draws in our range (in theory he should probably also have those SC, but they mostly a linear range with some suited Ax from my experience). So Im already not happy here and with my assumptions (him betting with all sorts of overpairs, some AdKx or AxKd), we are pretty break even here with 44. With my assumptions, solver liked to call here at least with 55. So Im already considering to fold here in hindsight

Picking up an OESD (prob with some reverse implied odds on some outs, due to him being able to play his one card diamonds like that), I just dont see what bets as aggressively here from his value hands (maybe some top sets or overpairs+FD he got married to) .. I see everything halfway reasonable checking here to be fair apart from the absolute nuts.

After him jamming, I assume this will be a very infrequently bluffed board by population and folded.. plus didnt like to herocall here only to be shown some funky overpair+FD that overvalued itself

Im mostly checking OOP. I like it in particular here, since villains range should consist mostly of PPs that could find a stab along with other pair+draws. Against a bet im mostly reraising here though. He wont have too many sets (since those 3b PF), other than that im putting him mainly on FDs, pair+draws, some 2ps .. not sure if he slowplays a made straight on such a board.

Looking at the range given above, think we have healthy equity to bet big again and charge most of his draws. Against a reshove I need 33% though, but I dont see us having that: we have some twopairs like JT beat, but other than that we are chopping at most or dominated by better two pair / made-turned straight. AQ wouldnt be too frequently in his range in my book, but its possible that some players flat that here. I gave him some jams with some combo draws (nut fd + gs f.e.), but still only get to 23% eq.

I mean I'd also arrive here with other flushes, 99 (88 even I think) and strong trips with AK, so I would say it isnt that tight. Im not sure if someone if people start go into bluffcatching mode with their PPs+clubs if I turn it up too much OTR, since as you said, we dont have as many trips that want to bet big here.

When in the past I used to pick anything remotely bluffable (regardless of their EV, if its breakeven or marginal), I was surprised to see that bluffing here with the mentioned AsQx combos is actually pretty good EV wise.

May 29, 2020 | 6:30 p.m.

crazyriver If im facing too much action, yes, because I dont think Tx is going to overplay like that too often.. but my assumption is that most of his (semi)-bluffs are not going to shove as a bluff OTR to frequently, so I dont have a tough decision if I have to fold. Shove OTF seems a bit risky, a fold too nitty yet - so Id prefer the middle of both and call

Im mainly giving up with other non spade combos of AQo here, but we can get better SDV (TT-QQ) with no spade to fold, while we block his potential flushes.. and if he happens to have trips, we still got some healthy outs to get to our spade draw. Id also be betting this turn with trips to get value from TT-QQ that do have a spade.
River ($13.87) K 8 K 9 5
UTG checks, Hero bets $6.18, UTG raises to $23.15 and is all in, Hero folds
After analyzing this spot, I dont like betting this particular combo of AQo here:
- We block some of his folds that have called the turn (QsQx)
- The Q blocker itself is irrelevant and doesnt block his trips he would be calling the river with (Ks already on the board and I assume he only arrives here with KQs, so wed ideally want a Q with a club/diamond
- At the same time, it would be good then to block some As flushes instead (so I would triple barrel here with AsQd/AsQc instead)

May 29, 2020 | 10:52 a.m.

I would bet small river as well, youll get called by counterfeited 65s, some PPs that went for a value/protection raise OTF (66-88, not sure where vils limping threshold lies PF to limp behind, so Id be careful to give him JJ-KK like you did OTR) and that should be enough, with the intention to bet/fold that is

May 29, 2020 | 10:37 a.m.

I could see that being profitable, probably in theory one of the worst PPs to be doing that with, since AA doesnt need the protection as much as other PPs do. Id argue its a somewhat big variance play, since people are pretty honest here and on the next streets, so we could navigate it smoothly.

After him checking twice, I think this is a good card to get some stronger PPs of his to fold (88-TT) .. im already planning to mostly barrel OTR (and stop on any non spade river, T/A), since he could be also floating with some AK here sometimes.
River ($8.16) 2 Q 5 J 4
BB checks, Hero checks
I probably figured ingame that he could also have some random lower SC or turned spades draw that we have beat and we have no need to bluff here with A high then. Its also not that favourable since we block some folding hands of his (AK, 99, T9) .. on the other hand, its probably still fine in a vacuum to continue betting here, as hes pretty capped with the previous action. The only benefit we have with this hand is blocking one AJs combo that might call our bet OTR. Other than that, I think this should be a half pot bet, seeing we should get so many folds and wed play any Qx/strong Jx the same way

May 27, 2020 | 7:11 a.m.

Yeah probably a pretty good hand to bet big with here, I assume I talked myself into betting smaller, because of the paired 7 on the board (and I can have those as well with 87s, 76s) where I wouldnt bet trips as big to let my opponent catch up. But probably fine to exploitatively size up here

In game, I didnt feel to good about pulling this value bet through, since there isnt too much worse wed get called by. I would expect hes capable to arrive here also with slowplayed 7x. On the other hand, check folding here feels pretty stupid. I looked at the solver solution and it had 16 EV for betting and 6 for X/C.. but with the X/C, it also lets the opponent bluff with every sort of missed hand (AsQx, AQs, FDs, 98s, QJs..), and I see some of those but not all.. am I just overthinking and it should be a jam, or maybe something in between (like betting 30% to get calls from Tx as well, folding to raise mostly)?

We pick up SDV to beat some of the FDs that have got to this point, but theres still more overpairs in his range than that. However, I wouldnt expect 99-TT f.e. to jam but more like JJ-QQ or slowplayed AA (KK sometimes being jammed more often PF). Next to that, he could be jamming missed FDs that we unblock and block some of the AA he could have slowplayed. But maybe population is too honest in 4b pots and bluffcatches like these shouldnt even be considered.

May 26, 2020 | 8:57 a.m.

Maybe yeah, seems like he needs to always bluff here and there arent many combos left. So youd still check KT, would you bet AT though OTT?

In game I figured its probably better for our opponent, but we can expect a lot of calls from some pairs+draws. However, seems like we should be checking here, since we dont have over 50% EQ against his range (still giving him some slowplayed sets here, even though he called OTF)

Good card, we also beat some stronger 9x now and any potentially slowplayed two pair (76s, dont know if he flats 97s pre). In game I found the call after his raise, since he could be also doing that with other two pairs like 76s, but I dont expect to be ahead here too often. Against a range of 99,77-66,22,T8s,76s,5d4d,5h4h (50% bluff for 54s), we have 26% EQ and need 18% to make the call.

May 22, 2020 | 7:40 a.m.

Considering overfolding: I meant more in the region of PPs below the board, Im expecting a reasonable amount of calls with BW cards.

The set value bet makes sense, thanks!

Would you incorporate this into the overbet bluffing range OTR? I mean on one hand, we make it less likely for him to call by blocking the KJ combos and unblock two pair, but at the same time, we would want him to have KJ if we get here with AK.

Probably a board you shouldnt be cbetting as often for small sizing, but I assume pop is overfolding enough PPs, which makes it okay. After a raise, I give him mostly made straights (KJ, J8s) and twopairs, not so much sets due to PF action, also some stronger Qx maybe like KQ. Also I would argue it is probably an underbluffed board overall, since one can expect enough continues here and less fold equity. Vs that range I believe when I looked it up, we got somewhat better EQ than odds offered, so I like the call
Turn ($4.26) Q 9 T J
BB checks, Hero bets $2.38, BB calls $2.38
I think this is a great card for us, it reduces the KJ/J8s combos and overall we will have some continues with Kx, so that we will have turned a straight. My SDV here is basically non existent and if I were to bluff with a hand, I would prefer a hand that unblocks twopair while making it unlikely that he has flopped a made straight, so Im betting here already planning to barrel OTR

If we have a player that isnt capable to fold two pairs/toppairs here, im probably just half potting it to get him off weaker pairs. But I guess people should find a fold even with their twopairs here if we overbet, and then thats better

Its a somewhat dry board, but Id rather have a bigger sizing strategy here instead of 1/3, because I think he will continue less often with hands that he should be continuing with (like some overcards + BD FD). And in that, I think my GS+BD FD fits pretty good in the "bluffing" range for that
Turn ($12.20) 8 2 T J

Pretty stupid card to continue on, a lot of his continues improved to pair+draw here or twopair, were not even happy with our 9 if it arrives any longer, since any Kx has us beat, so I check.
River ($12.20) 8 2 T J Q
Hero checks, BN checks
I think we can discount some stronger Jx, two pair and sets from his range after checkback, think those bet for value v our AQ/AK. He will have hands though like some AQ floats, two pairs .. but I would target those, because I feel like people are too sticky even with big sizes here. So Id bet half pot in hindsight to get some weaker pairs to fold (KT, AT, A8, some PPs that decided to flat OTF) .. we may block some of the folding range, but I think its mandatory to bet here, since we will rarely have worse.

Other than that, it could be a nutty hand that doesnt want to scare us off, but there is so little and we block 66, 65s (QQ would 3b pf).

May 19, 2020 | 9:09 a.m.

Is that to achieve a value to bluff ratio of 2:1? Because I always thought I had to somewhat even out the value combos (40 here) with a similar number of bluffs (32)

May 15, 2020 | 6:44 p.m.

I just figured, when I looked at the proper frequencies, I first establish the value range and afterwards go in each section of the range where there was some frequency of 4betting going on and pick a combo. I always made sure that the number of combos are somewhat close to value combos I have (JJ+, AK being 40, so I was looking to be somewhat in that range also with my bluff combos) .. or you think the ratio should be lower, so value to bluff should be 2:1? I havent done much studying around this topic and figured its a good solution to simplify my strategy

May 15, 2020 | 1:12 p.m.

Yup, lost it - he had KK

May 15, 2020 | 7:06 a.m.

My 4b range is the following here: JJ+, AKs, A5s, KTs, AKo, ATo, KTo

It is constructed that way so its easier to remember what to 4b. Because per theory, you should take different holding and 4b them at some frequency, so I just chose the 4b combos I have from EP (A5s, KTs), and extended it by two combos to make up for the wider value range we have in BU facing a SB 3b. So the holdings that you mentioned (KQo, AJo-AQo) and stuff Im actually flatting.

Now I figured I could maybe share some thoughts to see how others proceed on such blanks, because at the end of the day, if you 4b KJo/KQo, per range construction I could imagine we would have to pay attention to the same criteria or have the same challenge - would you bet KJo/KQo on that turn and if yes, which combos would you choose? But seeing comments like those from JamesYang , I can see that some might not be open for it :D

A little mistake on my part - the total EV wont be 52, but something along of 48-49 (so for a 10% increase in EV compared to jam), since I didnt properly remove the one KcTd combo from the small bet percentage above if he would raise his nut flush (screen shows 86% + 14% + 7%, which is 107%. It should be 79%, 14%, 7% for a total of 100%)

Agree with _michael_ , size up preflop. Im playing 3b only range here and KTs would be in it. Depending on the opponent, I think you could exploitatively keep the size somewhat down (maybe make it like 0.58), assume that all his lower pairs are still going to fold and get away with it on those limits. If the opponent is sticky, then size up.

9 wont be a great card to barrel on, you would get folds from 8x at most and his range improved overall, while still calling your second barrel pretty often.

I like everything till turn, but I dont see what youre getting called by OTR with that sizing. I assume BB wont click it back OTF with a FD that often multiway, but that its more often a strong Tx trying to not fold out your toppair. Now if that holds true, counting his combos, he has 2 combos of ATo you chop with, 12 combos of trips of which 3 combos have rivered a flush (KcTd, QcTd, JcTd).

If I bet something like 8 and assume all of his trips call that, we have around the same EV (maybe like 2% more, so negligible) as betting large hoping to get those calls by the rivered flushes. Admittedly, I thought were gonna be off better, hence why I started to break it down. But what it does not account for is the fact that your opponent can reraise in this spot to get value from worse flushes you raised OTT. And I dont think its unreasonable to assume that someone raises a rivered nut flush here on that board (or even second nut flush) so the EV would go up to at least 52 in comparison to jam, where its 44.

Hand History | downflux01 posted in NLHE: NL25z Overpair with BD-FD on drawy board
Blinds: $0.10/$0.25 (6 Players) BN: $29.15
SB: $25.32
BB: $25.35 (Hero)
UTG: $58.40
MP: $13.26
CO: $45.95
Preflop ($0.35) Hero is BB with Q Q
2 folds, CO raises to $0.63, 2 folds, Hero raises to $2.51, CO calls $1.88
Flop ($5.12) 2 9 4
Hero bets $2.56, CO calls $2.56
Would imagine flop is pretty standard
Turn ($10.24) 2 9 4 J
Hero checks, CO checks
In game I decided to check, but in retrospect, I like a second barrel better. He obviously has flushes but also enough pairs with a club that could maybe want to continue vs a half pot bet. Apparently the solver agreed with this logic per se, after nodelocking he bet all the combos though, regardless if theres a club in it
River ($10.24) 2 9 4 J K
Hero bets $7.12, CO raises to $40.88 and is all in, Hero calls $13.16 and is all in
Im not trying to target any marginal hand in here, but not sure if you could just lay it down? I called with the argument that he maybe could do that sometimes with Tc, but I dont think so.. then again, if we barrel off turn, we are never facing this decision, since we just value jam river against worse flushes

You think they play a 9x like that or check it OTT more often? Im asking because of the blocker effect, because if we dont give him that, id imagine bluffcatching with 3x and high cards is better (to block potential stronger 7x that can bet OTF like that), no?

Other than that, do you see arguments to cbet such a holding in a non-checking strategy?
