Post | Anton N posted in MTT: BB Defense with weak Ax MW

Hey! How would you play those hands? I'm a bit unsure of how preflop ranges changes when MW because on the one hand we get a better price but on the second hand we face a flatcaller too who should have a pretty decent range. I called A8 because of their late positions, folded A7 and A6 because posses was a bit earlier. I guess I'd rather have some suited garbage here like 74s because of the reveresed implied odds with those weak Ax?

Comment | Anton N commented on 10NL: 3bp with AKs IP

Thanks! That are some good points. I think I need to strengthen my checking range a bit in 3bps, especially in the SB where i mostly 3b/fold

1) How would you play this hand?
2) I wasn't really sure about flop, do I want to check a hand like this sometimes?
3) If I choose only 1 sizing for my betting range OTF, should that sizing perhaps be 33% instead of my 50?

ahh thanks ive been searching for like aggression, factor, frequency etcetc but couldnt find any of them, so its code words ty

April 26, 2019 | 12:42 p.m.

Right now my HUD contains around 25 stats, vpip, pfr, limp, RFI from all pos, cbet stats, fold to cbet stats, 3b/4b stats, fold vs btn, bb vs sb open fold, probe stats, float bets stats etc. However, I am looking for some general stat like aggression factor, frequency (pt4 doesnt seem to have those 2), WTSD, WSD or something like that. I don't have any of those nor do I have any idea how they work and what they really say, if someone could clarify or give me a tip I'd very much appreciate it!

April 26, 2019 | 10:09 a.m.

What’s that clean RNG called? Would really like to use that one, mine is quiet ugly

April 25, 2019 | 9:22 p.m.

Thanks man that's really helpful!

April 23, 2019 | 12:58 p.m.

That gives me some ideas thanks! I know how to use node locking, range explorer, hotness etc. but I feel like I'm just looking at spots to figure out how my hand was supposed to be played and while I know that's not a good way to go at it, it's basically the extent I've done pio work. I mean ofc I have been looking at ranges etc and try to understand the big picture, but it's all been in the context of my hand/play.

I think maybe I should just look at a certain spot for example SB spots (i play 3b/fold), work on that for a while and then move on to like BB vs BTN or something like that you know. That way my pio work wouldnt be so fragmented and specific

April 21, 2019 | 12:20 p.m.

Cool. I would assume my regpool generally slowplays sets OTF-T. As for Tx I would expect most of them to be folded OTT. So yeah maybe I lean towards a river check in retrospect idk

April 21, 2019 | 10:10 a.m.

So what are you saying? Post more standard lines and just play straight forward in these weirds spots? I guess the reason I'm posting weird shit is because in many spots like this one I'm just so confused about ranging my opponents (i know their full of shit etcetc).

Ive been playing HU for the last 1-2 years but recently Ive swapped back to ring games, hopefully for good as HU was going very slowly for me (stuck at 25NL as a small winner).

Since going back to ring games I have played 42k hands total on 10 and 25NL with 9 and 10 bb100 respectively. I think I'm doing fine but yeah I've been playing alot of poker since I started 4-5 years ago and havn't really been able to move up further. Im trying to be like a semi-pro together w my student loans (im a full time uni student).

Maybe time to evaluate the methods you are using to improve?

I bought pio this year and have started to use it regularly, hopefully that'll help me improve, the thing is im kind of overwhelmed by the program right now. However I do think Ive improved quite a bit this year already. I really want to improve faster but I'm not sure how as I have no idea where I'm leaking right now so yeah...

April 21, 2019 | 10:05 a.m.

Do you have any hands that plays well as small pot hands on an A after
cbetting polar OTF?

Uhm not really, no.

What is weakest value cbet with polar approach and can that hand still go for stacks?

I guess I'd cbet something 2p+, AQo+, maybe AJ, bluffs such as JT, QT and bdnfds I do have all suited aces except A6-8s. Would be checking PPs, AT and A5-A2s of clubs/spades aswell as maybe some Kx air. Thinking about this it's kind of obvious that I want to continue to barrel alot on this turn. Thanks. I need to think deeper like this. Very good questions

April 21, 2019 | 9:25 a.m.

Right yes thanks that is the reason I made the crying call, his small bet. I didn't really have bet folding in mind at all

Post | Anton N posted in NLHE: 10NL: AA spot in 4-way pot

Is it fine to continue OTT with nfd? Should i be checking alot on that turn perhaps? What about if I had aces wo the nutfd? Check then?

Ok thx! I probably need to clean up my game with some more hero folds. As I was playing this I was feeling kinda stationy calling, I do have the 4th nuts or whatever but the Td, 9d and 7d aren't possible so yeah im hoping for like a spew or some really bad merged value raise with like 8d which probably doesnt happen frequent enough

April 21, 2019 | 9:04 a.m.

How's this fold? Too nitty? Didn't really have many hands on BTN but he seemed to be kind of a solid reg. I don't expect many regs to make big moves here but maybe it's just a call.

How would you size this hand and play it overall? Should I do alot of checking on ace turn?? I went bigger OTF bceause I felt like betting 1/3 here w range is going to be bad because of the connectivity and fd but I might be wrong.

Comment | Anton N commented on 25NL AQo spot in 3bp

Ok say what would a good WSD stat be? I should probably make a post and show all of my stats, I don't really know where I'm leaking right now but I've been starting to struggle at 25NL lately. 8bb100 there and 12b100 at 10NL. But at 25 im running like 10 BIs over EV. Only played around 35k hands i total in ring games lately, used to play headsup the last 2 or so years

I too can recommend from the ground up, watching it for the 2nd time now and I play 25NL, great course imo and I would say definitely underpriced!!

Thanks! I don't think I'd be 3betting hands such as QTs, JTs etc here, very Ax heavy range which means that our bluffs are going to be mostly nut or bdnfds, some Axo type giveups and this hand somewhere in between but yeah I think I like the bet OTF

April 16, 2019 | 8:27 p.m.

Ok thanks. I would probably XC QQ and JJ. Would you say it's generally fine to think something like "When we are MW, ranges are generally stronger which means that we generally don't want to be range betting because that should be used for pushing range adv."? Are there some/many/frequent boards where betting range MW is an option?

April 16, 2019 | 8:22 p.m.

SB was some sort of loose-passive fish it seemed. First time I ever saw him and he also had 75% limp btw. So I figured I'd try to squeeze out the reg and play IP vs that guy. MP was kind of a new player for me too, but since this hand I've played hundreds of hands against him and he seem TAGish, quite solid for my games.

Should I bet flop here MW? With my bdsd and bdnfd? Looking to continue on spades, J and Tx? I feel like that's better than checking and I feel like I was being quite passive here. On that turn I don't really have much going for my hand, I think SB will have more 9, 8 and 5x than he should and also the reg was still in the hand.

I don't think so, alot of coaches are talking about block betting in recent videos, it's definitely a thing and pio advocates for it sometimes as Samu said. Some pros that I have heard/thought of:
-It allows me to get thin value with hands that can't really bet bigger.
-I "set the price for the pot" and deny villain the opportunity to bet bigger with hands that are slightly better than mine but can't really raise my block, so we save money vs slightly better hands that would bet bigger and we would XC OTR.
-As far as bluffing goes, in a vacuum it only has to work 25% of the time with a 33% sizing so there are some potential exploits to be made with junk if we think that villain is just going to overfold.
