i have exactly the same problems, i started to play this game with friends and according to them, the ev of AA top 16 cards FL is WAY more than the 7-8 points of 14cards FL from their experience, but no idea what number
would be super glad to have any answer, maybe Jen Shahade could help us!

I've made a skype group like one year ago, we were 6 and talk a lot about strategy and exchanging HH
then sadly the group became inactive for a long time, but i tried to revive it this week, and yes Oblio and Gametheory and I are discussing
so if you are a nl or plo200+ player wanting to
-want to understand some pio simulations
you can come and tell me your skype by pm :)

well the only difference that i find is that 88 donest block q9s, but it's such a small effect i wouldnt be sure
otherwise they block the same combos, really weird
you dont have an ev analysis ?

hey guys i'm having a debate with a friend on why gto cbet 1/3 on flop like A72r on hu sgr pot
so for me its because we have a lot of air and want vilain to fold with a cheap bet, but he disagree saying the bigger the bet is, the more bluff we have, so if we have a lot of bluffs we should bet more, like 2/3
the 2 statements seems true, so i dont really know what to say, any idea? cheers

So, i'm talking poker with a friend, and we agree on spot like we have AK on a T92r flop, we bet 1/3 pot, sometimes we are value betting (vilain call a worse hand like AQ), sometimes we are bluffing (vilain fold a better hand like 33), but it's not important when we bet saying in front of our computer "here i value bet" or "here i'm bluffing"
what do you think? i talked about this with other poker players and they that obviously we need to know what we are doing because we were taught that way
but i think GTO doesnt really care if he's bluffing or value betting (sometimes our bet and check have the same ev, so if we bet we don't value anything or bluff anything right?) on the preflop, flop and turn
about the river:
on the river in position, our range have to be polarised (0-1 game) so we bet our worse hands (100% bluffing) our best hands (100% value betting, with our worse value betting hand close to 50% equity vs vilain calling range, adn we call that "value betting thin") and we check our middle hands
on the river out of position, sometimes we bet hands that seems to be value bets hands but have less than 50% equity when called, because checking these hands has a lower EV, since we are not guaranted to see a showdown
am i right here? do you have any comments? i liek to argue with friends but some thing i say can be quite weird at frist look :)

i fold flop, we have a nice hands, but versus SB range just a bluffcatcher
+ CO can reraise
on a Q or 7 of club we're not even sure we awant to call T+R
on the turn easy call
and river 1/4 or check back, i guess, some players (like me) like to x/shove river

thank you for your answer!
i never saw a reg sitting me at 50bb and we played the first hand and he called very lighly a 3bet (K3s if i remember); so yeah 99% probability for the fish
i'm ok i have better spots, i was going to fold, but i thought dude you have a set or nothing do you?
that's why i elected to call; he can has a lot of bluff and there is a few nuts combos!
and btw he showed 76 :/

no vs 2x call 60% 3bet around 10-15%; vs 2.5x call 45-50% 3B 10-15%
Nov. 11, 2015 | 12:09 p.m.
yes 87s is better than K3s;
vs 2.5x i would call around 45-50% and vs 2x around 60%
i think it hard to say "only x% of equity is released": it is really hard to estimate this number! that's why it's hard to say which hand is the bottom call vs a range of x% at y sizing preflop, even by analyzing your hands winnings BB vs BTN
