Post | polarizing53 posted in NLHE: BB with 36 of hearts

Hero is on the BB with 36 of hearts. And my image was not good at all. UTG presumably solid player limps. SB limps. Hero raises to 30 bucks. Flop 3s 5c 7d. Hero checks, UTG checks.Turn 5s. I bet 35. He raises to 110. I called. pot(285). river 9d. I checked, he bet 165. I tanked and then called. He showed A5 offsuit

Question:Do you ever consider making this call? How do you adjust your calling range in this case?For example,do you have any preference of callng over pairs instead of a pair with a gut shot.

Thank you for your reply. Could you also briefly elaborate what does the numbers mean under each players name?I'm kinda curious about those 4 numbers in the first column. Since I have trouble to know players type due to incorrectly frequency analysis.

hi bigfish.
Thank you. I guess asking instructors will be the solution for me. Because I have trouble to analysis players frequency,so I couldn't name their playing styles.

Hi guys. I'm new to the online arena. I have trouble to read stats below each players name. Could anyone tells me how to read it? Appreciate for any feedback.

Nicely done as always. At 14:23,how do you think that call with 56 ,58 and J8+? And fold 68 and J6.I know this is sounding weird for we are folding the better hands. But I think we are blocking the hand our opponent is trying to represent.For example, 55 and J5suited.

hi elusivemark,

Just a general question toward this magnificent video. Which postions do we assume each player is in the pio analysis.And is it only apply to online 6-max game?

Nov. 15, 2018 | 12:58 a.m.

hi era7er,
Good video as always. At 26:35~, I don't really understand the fold with 88 at SB. Did you think the player played too tight or played extremely good postflop?

Oct. 14, 2018 | 6:13 a.m.

I mean he would at least thinking a little bit with a set on the river. Instead of snaping me

Sept. 22, 2018 | 1:57 a.m.

No, I think he mostly likely has JJs-kks. He would at least thinking about checking raise me on the river.

I purchased run it once elite annually plans at a discount rate on January. Do I have to cancel the subscription if I wish to cancel this plan the next year? Because I assume I will make automatically payments each year?

Hi elias,
Thanks a lot for explaning that to me. In this example, we have a middle range hand.K8 on K75J double suited board. Would you prefer to mainly taking bet,bet check line against this type of player or bet,check, call line against him? I only play heads-up online, so i don't know what type of player this is. My read is that he is loose-passive. And i feel that we have a lot of jacks and A high in our range on the turn.

Hi elias,
i really enjoy your video.Your strategy analysis seems impeccable because i have improved my game a lot by studying from you.
Could you elaborate a little bit more about the strategy you talk around 29:30? I don't really understand how exactly should i "polarized" my game.

aginst his AQss+ hands. called nines is too ambitious to be profitable in the long run.unless you prepare to turn thoses 99 into a bluff in later street. QQ2 board already kills the action in later street(you probably not gonna get paid when you hit your 9)

May 8, 2018 | 4:18 p.m.

live 2/5 1425 effective. Villian young very aggressive image. running over the table at this point.
button who is a whale straddles. SB who is a tricky reg opens 40. i call with 88 utg+2. Lowjack who is a rock calls. Button called.
Flop:872r pot(165)
SB leads for 100. I raised to 275. Everyone folds except the trick reg. Note:he snap called my raises.
Turn:10d pot(710) creating a backdoor. He checks. I check. Here is where i think i might be wrong. I don't think that he thinks i am wild enough to run a crazy bluff. Because the whale is on the table. The 10d makes my bluffs on the flop harder to continue on the turn,namely 109ss, 65ss. And i felt that he had an overpair on the flop,because the timing tell.
He checks. I bet 450. He snaped me. Obviously, i made a mistake by not betting huge here by leaving 600$ behind. His snap calls kinda reveals that he probably has what he has. My question is, how would you approach this spot?Any feedback is appreciated.

Hi Juan,
really like your analysis man. You helped my games a lot, namely having a balanced limp strategy which i never heard of. on 12:33, do you think it is better to pick your stronger hearts (AJhh+)to check, and betting the smaller flush(A5hh,K5hh,and A3 A4 A2hh)? My logic is that the smaller kickers block our opponents bluffing range. Whereas the higher kicker blocks our opponents calling range.

hi,glad to see a good player like you join the club.
At 32:40, do you think we can implement a check-raise strategy on the turn with that specific hand? Because we don/t block any ace and K. And our opponent 's range is kinda capped.

March 14, 2018 | 3:58 a.m.

really nice video. At 15:50 on 77,do you think he has more semi-bluffs than pure bluffs in that spot? Despite the fact we have position advantage in that situation, since we are not folding any river, under what circumstance would you consider shoving the turn with 77?

March 11, 2018 | 10:34 p.m.

i hope you taking care of yourself. At 48:07, Do you think the villian is going to primary bet his middle to high flush draws like Kss Qss and 10ss in conjuction with his smallest flush draw? And checking his nut flush draw and middle to small flush draws like 8ss 7ss? Just curious what do you think of his "bet folds" are.

March 11, 2018 | 12:33 a.m.

Very nicely done. Would you mind telling me the betting frequency on AKTrb board and on KK9rb? It was omitted at the end of the video.

March 5, 2018 | 6:22 p.m.

your analysis is on the next level man. I'm not saying you are one of the better coach in RIO. But you are my favorite one for sure.

Feb. 26, 2018 | 5:56 a.m.

hi sauce,
at 16:02, why would you want to shove the river?
Villian is more likely to play AA than an Ace that way. Especially the board is double suited. Do you think value bet like 65 to get some value from a 7 is better?

Feb. 24, 2018 | 10:37 p.m.

nice video as usual

Feb. 20, 2018 | 8:51 p.m.

live 2/5, 600 effective. Hero maniac image. Utg+3 who was winning a lot opens 20. Unknown called on the lowjack. Cutoff grinder called. I called with 9c8c. Sb loose aggressive fish called.(pot 105)

Flop Qh4c2c. utg+3 checked. Unknown bets 55. I called. SB called. Others folded.

Turn: Ac Unknown bets 115. I called. Sb folded.

river:8s Unknown all-in. I snaped. He had KcKh.

My question is, given the description of each players, do you prefer to raise the flop as a bluff? I know i got very lucky with the runout. I'm just thinking maybe there are more merits to bluff the flop. Because i could potentially bluffed out the better flush draw Sb likely to have. And i could represent sets that other players can't have. Because i play ever 22 and 44.

Any feedback is greately appreciated.
