Comment | maco commented on NL16z QQ

I agree, turn is a check and I dont really understand the shove. What is the reason behind the shove? I think this is the most important question. Is it for value or bluff?

Yeah, you can import and see how agressive the pool is. From my reports 10nl and 25nl pool is not 3betting enough and not even close. For example bb v sb the pool is under 3betting like 10%.

I think that the hud on GG only takes in consideration the last 100 hands. I dont use it at all and only take in consideration notes that I have on a villan.

I dont think that x/c otf and ott is that bad here. I think the EV difference between raising and calling is not that big. Someone who uses a solver can check. Also, if you think that villan is never taking this line with 2p+, its a mistake not to raise.

Aug. 20, 2021 | 8:14 p.m.

Its 100% check for me and it depends on his bet size if I call or fold. Your line doesnt make any sense because its hard to balance it with bluffs.

Aug. 20, 2021 | 5:25 p.m.

For me it makes no sense and I dont understand the donk.

Comment | maco commented on delayed C-bet

I like your line, but I think villan should still have some strong hands in range.

Comment | maco commented on Top set on a dry board

I usually cbet 1/4 with range in this spot and there is no reason to cbet big here. Ofc your strategy can be different and if you chose to have a checking range it is ok to check with this combo.

Comment | maco commented on blind vs blind 4bet pot

I agree! I would cbet the AK combos with a club in this spot and check the other ones. In bvb in 4bet pots on Qxx villan could have all the AQ/KQ/QJs combos.

Nothing you can do, just grind and have a solid br. Things will come around at some point.

Aug. 17, 2021 | 11:04 p.m.

You are going to deep. People will do random things in a home game where the stakes are not that high.

Comment | maco commented on TT 50z 4bpt

Fold preflop if you think that the pool is not 4bet bluffing enough in this positions.

Aug. 17, 2021 | 10:37 a.m.

Call preflop, fold to 4bet. When he 4bets 75bb and we are 150bb deep I see only two options: 5bet shove or fold. And obv villan is not a good player.

Aug. 17, 2021 | 10:35 a.m.

My guess is that the solver likes you to have the Ad, because villan shouldnt bluff with the Ad otr, but he should bluff other Ax combos.

Comment | maco commented on 3b sizing

Seems good to me, but I wouldnt 3bet 8bb ip when someone opens 2bb. Against 2x/2.2x I would go for 7bb.

Comment | maco commented on x

I think I like cbeting here having a diamond, thats the option I would prefer the most. If we check I m not really sure what to do when he bets big, but I m not folding so we have to chose between call and shove. I guess both options will have similar EV so I dont mind either.

July 21, 2021 | 8:30 p.m.

A rec cand have hear a lot of things and its hard to give him a range, but I m never folding a hand this strong against a rec. I m just shoving

Comment | maco commented on Bluffcatch v reg?

When I reviewed this hand I was thinking about 88-TT and the combos with diamonds and spades are def a fold, but I m not sure about the other ones.

Post | maco posted in NLHE: Bluffcatch v reg?

Villan is a reg. Otf we can proabably go both ways, betting small or checking, my default would be to cbet range. As played blocking AJ/77, unblocking spades/diamonds make this hand a good bluffcatcher? Also villan should 4bet some JJ combos preflop and the turn is also great for us. My plan otr was to even call a shove, but when he goes smaller is even better. What do you think?

July 15, 2021 | 8:39 a.m.

Flop is a check imo and river is ok to just fold when he goes close to pot. When he bets big I think he polarized his range to straights or bluffs.

Comment | maco commented on NL25z JJ

What bluffs should he have in theory? I guess something that blocks our strong calling range

July 11, 2021 | 7:54 p.m.

Comment | maco commented on NL25z JJ

I dont think that villan should have KK-AA in theory and QQ is a mix, but mostly 4bet this deep. Also you both should have some 87s/76s combos in your range. Ott I'm not sure where his bluffs should come from, but with JJ you are high up in your range to fold yet, because now you fold all your floats like AK/AQ/T9ss, you can fold some lower pairs like 88-99.

July 11, 2021 | 1:58 p.m.

Q1:For me its a pure call with this combo and my 3bet strategy in BB is to 3bet polar and not liniear, thats why this is a call, but if you have a liniear 3bet range from BB its fine.
Q2: I think is ok to x/f with this combo, because the board is not one that we should cbet our range, because your liniear 3bet range will miss this board a lot. My strategy otf is to cbet with a polar range, so going for a bigger size over half pot.

Comment | maco commented on crazy bluff?

Never mind. I'm just blind. I thought that it was a 3bet pot.

Comment | maco commented on crazy bluff?

Fold preflop. As played I'm checking river.

July 8, 2021 | 7:33 p.m.

I said that is ok to call with the Ah and see no point in 3betting the flop. Is standard to me too, but we can think about 3betting the flop without the Ah.

July 8, 2021 | 11:34 a.m.

With the Ah its ok to calldown.

July 8, 2021 | 9:40 a.m.

Flop is close, but turn is def a fold. I would just check river, we have enough sdv imo.

July 8, 2021 | 9:35 a.m.

I dont think that this is a flop where you should x range in this positions. I would cbet flop, turn and decide river, but proabably give up if we dont improve We still have some sets, 2p, overpairs that want to bet ott and we lose a lot of value if we dont do so.

Comment | maco commented on 3barrels bluff in 3BP

For me AJo is a fold or 4bet and AQo is mixing 4bet/calls.
