at 36m mark. you open 33 with alot of reshoving stacks behind. I've always felt that we don't really want to call a 13-15bb reshove and that small PP have very little value other than a steal. What you think?

Hi Nick, at 16:30 you raise fold A8s on the button (around 26 bb deep). You said there is no argument for open shoving this. Why do you think that? In my mind, raise folding and open shoving should be quite close.

why would you say 1/2 pot cbets optimal? I see a lot of live players 1/2 pot cbet. Is it because of pots being multiway and we will have a more value heavy cbet range?
April 20, 2014 | 6:46 p.m.
more live poker videos where there is more dynamics and multiway pots. I think thats where online players lack experience in which you can help.
April 20, 2014 | 6:44 p.m.
I think maybe next time if you were to make a video for a specific concept you could first do a power point thing like what to consider, diff factors, situations to apply etc. Then move on to examples.
April 20, 2014 | 6:41 p.m.
considering what we want to do with our range on the turn vs a strongish sb range (very few floats with 1 players left to act on the flop), what bluffs would you have in your overbet range on the turn? Or is it not necessary to balance in these spots?
I just feel if we want to over bet at any street, its better to do it on the river. Half potting the turn and over bet the river off a bigger chopped pot. Half potting turn is also enough to fold out most of opponents non-A pairs with our bluffs.

i open 4578hh from CO
bb 3bets pot
I call (?)
(btn always 3b AAxx IP, has rundowns in his back 4bet range)
Friend told me I should be folding to the 4b because BB usually has me dominated as well as BTN. If assuming both villains do not have AA type hands. BTN could have KKxxs.
i def QJT5dd from bb
flop : Jd6h7h
(btn is quite a station/sticky, very aggressive gets in light)
How does having the BD SD/FD affect my decision?
March 17, 2014 | 5:25 a.m.
AQQx hand deep OOP. If you think villain is over bluffing the turn can you not turn your hand into a bluff and x/r the turn?
March 4, 2014 | 4:54 p.m.
bet for sure on turn. Flop i prefer x/c
Feb. 14, 2014 | 5:05 a.m.
bet size depends on your perceived range. What is your range for flatting the x/r on the flop? Does it include Ahx type hands?
If your range to the river include those hands then bet bigger. I think given his line a bet here would be more +EV than checking.
I would usually put villain on Jcx type hands. Could have a flush draw as well but i think that is unlikely, unless its Jhx.
on the side, what would you have done had villain bet the turn?
Feb. 9, 2014 | 10:37 a.m.
How do you guys generally approach multiway pots?
ie KQ/QJ on QTx flop 3 way. I usually check here since there is enough overpair+ in my range to bet and I would want to protect my checking range. But then the nature of it being 3 way means we have more hands to protect vs right? or is our range protected by the pot being multiway (villain can't stab too wide)
Jan. 28, 2014 | 5:10 a.m.
I 3bet from SB and CO calls. CO is a TAG reg. No 3b/postflop reads
Flop JT7r. This board just hits CO range so hard. Should we check our entire range here? Im 3betting a merged range with a lot of SC/suited broadway/JJ+
Jan. 25, 2014 | 6:01 p.m.
on the 1st hand w J6s , will over betting rivers be a better strategy as villains range is significantly capped here and we will have a ton of air type hands as well? Something like over bet with sets/straights and bet a standard size w 2p type hands or Ax. I just find that when you check this river you can't really rely on villain betting thin for value as he has so few value combos. Maybe check raise some Tx or Qhigh spades on the river and balance that with like QJss
Jan. 17, 2014 | 5:04 p.m.
we are getting bit less than 2-1, plug into OO, AsKs has around 80+%equity vs a range of [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] Its a call. Even if you remove some gutters that fold flop or x/f turn. we still have more than enough equity to call and its not even close. add in some QxTx, AxTx and we still have 70+%
Jan. 13, 2014 | 5:40 a.m.
J4hh- i think a standard bet on the turn and an over bet on the river would do better. Its not like villains range is capped by checking the flop and also we do want to get value when we do have a hand.
Jan. 13, 2014 | 5:23 a.m.
how do we construct our ranges without capping our range and lose value?
HERO raise CO, SB calls.
FLOP : 9T3r. check, bet, call
TURN : K check, check
RIVER: check, HERO ???
We probably don't want to bet the turn with hands like QT, or JJ. Since K on turn should help villains range better than ours. On the river, if we bet villain probably knows we never check back a straight or TT/99 and can check raise thin for value and bluffs. What can we do about this? Not bet QT/JJ on river? or does it not matter since villain himself loses value by checking river
Dec. 28, 2013 | 4:53 p.m.
im interested. I play live in Macau and play 200-500zoom on stars
Nov. 18, 2013 | 1:37 p.m.
so what should our turn strategy be?
Nov. 13, 2013 | 8:01 p.m.
UTG folds, HJ folds, CO raises to $15, Hero raises to $40, SB folds, BB folds, CO calls $25
Nov. 13, 2013 | 7:59 p.m.
JT pretty unlike given that he didn;t x/r flop. and weird that he x/r the blank 5 on the turn when he flat flop. Given that he has got so few made value hands I think check on river is best. Im so lost as to what the hell villain has. Can you show us what villain had?
Nov. 13, 2013 | 4:23 a.m.
BB: $843.28 (Hero)
UTG raises to $10, HJ folds, CO calls $10, BN calls $10, SB folds, Hero calls $5
Seems like a good spot to be bluffing here
UTG and BTN both have nitty stats playing 19/16. No history or reads.
Nov. 13, 2013 | 4:06 a.m.
hey there what are the numbers from the EV(b,b,b). mind to post the fomulae
Nov. 10, 2013 | 8:36 p.m.
btn vs co this goes towards the top of our value range so i would bet. 2-7, T, K, A i would bet again on turn and check 8,9,T,J,Q as it strengthen villains range relative to ours and we will want to protect our checking range.
Nov. 9, 2013 | 1:40 a.m.
i think the way to go is to see how each player interacts with the board and work from there. It really depends on your range. Whether you have A7s or 22 in it matters also to construct your flop strategy. If you can't defend you checks enough you have to move some of your value betting hands to your x/c range to protect it. However this also depends whether you feel villain is exploiting you or not. If you think villain is not def enough to your cbet then its fine to just cbet relentlessly until he adjusts then only you start to incorporate more value hands into your x/c range
Nov. 9, 2013 | 1:33 a.m.
I am trying to build a framework for contracting ranges
Here is one hand I played. HJ raises, I call from the BB w KJs. Flop comes AK9r.
Here the flop hits both hero and villain hard. From Odds Oracle hero actually connects with the board relatively better than villain.
Hero's flop interaction from OO:
8.8023% NOTHING (all gut shots)
To continue vs villains cbet we need to def around 5-60% depending on bet size also taking into consideration we are OOP for the rest of the hand.
If we cont with. pair+,gs+ we are only continuing ~45%, if we add in TT-QQ we continue around 64%.
Now, since we didi't 3b pre and villain knows we don't have AA,KK in our range we should defend by calling right? or at 100bb deep it really doesn't matter?
When we call flop and turn brings a FD and villain barrels again. I find it hard to continue with the range that we called on the flop since we are def so aggressively. So am I taking the wrong approach or what
Nov. 9, 2013 | 12:07 a.m.
Having trouble starting Odds Oracle after upgrading to OSx Maverick. Wonder if anyone else is having the same problem?
Started a thread on the propokertools forum but it got deleted (i think) and sent an enquiry but no reply so far.
Oct. 27, 2013 | 9:43 p.m.
CO: $400 (Hero)
UTG calls $4, HJ raises to $18, Hero raises to $64, BN folds, SB folds, BB folds, UTG folds, HJ calls $46
Oct. 16, 2013 | 11:27 a.m.
On the last hand with AJo in the sb. Do you like having a non all in 3bet range in this spot? Or you getting flatted by the button too often to 3bet call AJ here?
I think a lot of people have this same problem including myself. What I usually do is to constantly remind myself to not let winnings bring me down to my B game. If I feel that I am still playing very passive and scared, ill just quit for the session and come back another time.
