Post | hkabir200291 posted in NLHE: Smaller 3 bet sizing

In 6 max cash games when UTG opens and you are UTG +1 is it okay to 3 bet smaller than normaI with your range? I understand we have to 3 bet here almost all the time as we risk getting squeezed by too many behind etc. Can we get away with a smaller 3 bet sizing say 2-2.5x rather than the standard size here. Also lets assume hero and villian have 100bb stacks.

You need to think about what worse hands villian will call your raise with. Generally in this spot i would just call as i agree with Kalupso. However if you have a read on the villian and think he over values top pair/ one pair type hands too much and does not like folding i guess you could raise here as an exploit

I have a shitty laptop 2gb ram and thinking of getting PIO solver pro will the software work fully or do i need a better laptop?

I live in London guys and at the moment i am only rolled for 100nl (1/1) with a max buy in of £200 or biggest stack on the table so the games for 1/1 are pretty deep. However the rake is atrocious. 10 percent capped at £7. Are these games beatable? Any experienced live low stakes players that have managed to beat these games with such a rake? Im not going to stay at 1/1 for long i just want to build a roll until i can move up to 1/2. I am a winning player online up to 50nl so skill is not a problem when transitioning to live just the rake. If i am wasting my time playing 1/1 live please let me know. Thanks.

How reliable are poker Snowie Preflop Ranges? Also are they relevant for 6 max or are these ranges more geared towards full ring?

Dec. 2, 2017 | 5:03 p.m.

Thanks man! Why do you suggest i 3 bet all calls that snowie advises outside big blind and fold the suited aces?

Simple question how do i improve my poker game?

Hi guys just wondering what is a good win rate to aspire to at the upper end of microstakes 25nl and 50nl? In terms of bb/100 how much do the best regs make at these stakes?

Dec. 1, 2017 | 11:08 a.m.

The problem is live poker almost all raises preflop are 6x. How do i adjust bearing in mind we are 200bb plus deep. I called 6x for implied odds and the fact my ha d plays well multiway. Please advise me how do i adjist to 6x raise preflop live.

I checked qq here because i also check ak sometimes in this spot

Nov. 26, 2017 | 6:48 a.m.

Live 1/1 super deep stack.
Hero £600
Villian £250
Button £300.
Preflop villian aggressive player opens to £6. Hero is in cut of with 8s 6s and callls. Button calls. Flop 10h 7d 2s. Villian bets £16? Hero? I look to my left and can see button is ready to fold and distracted on phone so we can safely call without being raised by button. Anyway this is a call right? we have implied odds etc and we are quite deep. We can pick up spades for more equity on turn as well. Or do i fold here? Not to sure about the math and how much villian needs to have to make this a profitable call.

Nov. 24, 2017 | 1:57 p.m.

Also how do you suggest i played the hand. I understand river is clearly a check. However was i right in check calling first two streets? I understand flop i will always check call as villian can have lots of worser hands in his range? Do we check call again on turn or fold? Once villian bets turn we can taker worser pair type hands out of his checking range on turn, hands like sevens for example wouod check back at a high frequency. So the small bet on the turn suggests he has a weak K or a flush draw and a small percentage of the time value hands like two pair. I think i should have check folded turn. We also had the q spades in out hand so that takes a lot of his flush draw combos out of his range and his range is kx heavy. Well thats my thought process now having thought about the hand. What do you think about this line?

Nov. 23, 2017 | 4:32 p.m.

In this hand i realised my mistake. Its one of those things where i know why it was bad but it was like a frustrated blocker bet. Simply put in that spot worser hands are only folding and better hands calling. I just had to post my hand here so i can be reminded by RIO lol and also get diciplined by other better players to stop making rookie mistakes.

Hero and fish both have around £200 behind. Folded around to fish on button who makes it £3 on button. Small blind folds hero in bb raises to £13 with qq. Flop kc 7s 2s. Hero checks, villian bets 12 hero calls. Turn 3h. Hero checks villian bets 12 again and hero calls. River 9s. Hero leads out for £10. Villian calls and wins showing k7. I feel like i could have played this hand much better and saved myself at least 10 pounds by check folding river. What do you guys think how could i play this better/ differently.

Nov. 23, 2017 | 8:20 a.m.

You should try and avoid playing aq in a 4 bet pot out of position. Personally i would have folded to the 3 bet vs unknown. I agree with others the average reg isnt 4 bet bluffing enough in these button bs blind situations and most 4 bets are skewed towards aq against unknown is a standard fold.

Do you really think there are bots?

I tend to find more fish at 6 max at micros

Nov. 17, 2017 | 2:48 a.m.

Why is it such a good line by villian Nick?

Nov. 16, 2017 | 4:11 p.m.

Is it just me or party poker is just easy money for a micro stakes shark like me. I played some 6 max 25nl and 50nl and was amazed at the quality of players. It is infested with loose passive fish, whales, aggressive donks who overbluff and very bad regs. Easy money! Or am i just running good lol.

Nov. 16, 2017 | 8:03 a.m.

Much appreciated

Nov. 13, 2017 | 1:37 p.m.

I play 100bb deep so a 5 bet would normally be a shove are you happy to shove AK 100bb deep against an uknown?

Nov. 13, 2017 | 1:35 p.m.

Yeah you could get 3 streets. Bet flop, bet brick turns, and check brick rivers to allow him to bluff missed draws etc.

Nov. 12, 2017 | 1:44 p.m.

Is it just me or there are not many live poker essential videos? I only managed to find one or two in learnings paths. Are there anymore?

Nov. 12, 2017 | 7:57 a.m.

Jeff he should definetly fold turn vs unknown. Most rivers will not help us and villian is likely to put us in a tough spot on river with a large bet. Its better to wait for a better spot until we can get a read on villian.However i agree AJ here vs uknown should be a cbet on flop even vs uknown he should be c bettting here a high percentage of the time on such a wet flop.

Nov. 12, 2017 | 7:38 a.m.

Hmm why did you check such a wet flop. Villian has lots of hands that he can call us with as cut of should have a wide range here. Broadway type hands like 56 67 96 10 7 and flush draws weaker ace x some pocket pairs that will float etc. I expect that flop to hit villians range well in that spot and we need to can definetly get value from worser hands with showdown value that will otherwise check behind on this flop and also we need to charge for draws. But as played fold turn the board gets even worse and there are not many rivers we can improve to. A better board to check AJ would have been dry boards such as A72 rainbow. Boards like these i wont expect to hit villians range well and you should allow them to catch up a little bit. However on this board A57 you have several straight draws and gutters you need to get value from 34, 86, 96, 89, 64 as well as flush draws. I know i am repeating myself but hopefully this helps. Also by checking you get no information from villian. By betting flop you can narrow villians range down and get a better read on him. Out of curiousity why did you check this flop vs uknown?

Nov. 12, 2017 | 7:35 a.m.

Okay let me repjrase the question what is the best way to play ak (suited and offsuit) in a button vs blind situation where we face a 4 bet after 3 betting buttons open? Button is unknown and we are both 200bb deep.
