Can't fold now, but we probably should have folded the turn.

clear flop fold

well the rank of the card is pretty important for making that decision.

i would not be betting any nut flush draw combos OTT unless they had top two or a set

Clear fold to the turn c/r. Your bottom two are dead and you aren't getting odds to chase your flush. Big mistake to bet the turn with this holding.

I would fold the turn. We are not getting a very good price and perhaps more importantly we are not closing the action.

better to check the flop

Raise pot and try to get it in vs an inferior draw. We are favoured against "just" 74 and only a modest dog to top set.

yah time to move up

against QQ only your equity is pretty bad too, doesn't mean you should fold

April 25, 2019 | 1:11 p.m.

call, u only need 33% equity

April 24, 2019 | 4:59 p.m.

You bet the flop.

Comment | plolearnerguy commented on PLO with antes

the thing is these games play pretty deep and loose aggro, so I think tight aggressive is still the right approach because while you are putting in more dollars each round, the size of the forced bet relative to the size of flop and turn and river action is still quite small, so a tight strategy pays off.

you are not allowed to raise yourself

The thing is that making a "good hand" is not a positive thing in a multiway pot. You need to make the best hand, and making second best is very costly. So you have to be more selective and place a premium on nut potential.

Mexico gives a 6 month visa on arrival, which is renewable in perpetuity by doing a border run.

highly profitable for your opponent

Mexico is decent. I got a cheap apartment for $100 CAD a month with solid wifi, so lots of options for cheap accommodations and food. Learning Spanish is great too, and relatively easy for an English speaker. Lots of great options in Latin America, but stay out of Colombia because PokerStars and Party are both blocked there. Even a place like the Dominican Republic would be fine. Mexico you can get super cheap flights too which is nice, and not so long on the flights.

Asia has lots of great options as well. The Philippines, Cambodia, Vietnam, all very cheap.

Dunno why you wouldn't go like Sept - Mar and skip all of the winter months.

One nice thing about both Latin America and Asia, is you can find really cheap hotels that are decent quality in the range of $10-$30 CAD per night. So you can just grab a hotel for a week or two while you look for a rental.

I've been travelling around Latin America and now Asia for the last year and a half playing online poker, it's really a great experience I highly recommend to any grinder.

raise - stack off, especially if you use pot sizing. sb's not deep.

April 7, 2019 | 10:15 a.m.

come on, i need some of that medium staking

Pre I think I prefer a fold, although I would over limp on the button. Our hand is highly disconnected and frankly quite junky. Of course, PPT ranks it in the 10th percentile so I guess raise or call are probably both fine.

I am checking back the flop. Also your pot figures are off, if it is 5 to the flop for 9 that should be 4500 in the pot.

Getting 2:1 with around 9 outs (two of our flush cards pair the board and our gutty is third nut, so we have to discount these cards somewhat) it seems like a clear turn fold. We are also not closing the action. We may have some hidden outs in the form of an ace or a king but still I think this is a quite clear fold.

at this spr against a 73/5 i would definitely fold, best case scenario you are flipping vs like pair + oe. more likely you are a significant dog.
