Wierd that villian shows up with 59o, obvious not open pre and fold vs 3bet. Maybe he exploit if the blinds overfold vs opens But then he should still fold vs 3bet, maybe a missclick.

10% 3bet range is abit nitty for my taste.
Tripple barrel seems fine. This hand and and jq type hands make sense to barrel off and can value tripple AT+.
I would take a note and be more careful bluffing him in spots and going for thinner value. TJ+ now should be fine to tripple after seing this. If he calls This he says he dont fold rivers with any paired hand wich means he is overcalling alot.

I station river, expect enough randomness and getting good odds. But its not amazing, mostly losing against tt/jt

Having a good theory understanding will help you spot this easier. If you know wich hands is supposed to bluff and wich should giveup, then you can pick up if they likely underbluff or overbluff. Some players will overbluff by alot and other underbluff by alot. Figuring out who is who is abit tricky.
But if you se someone tripple a hand that is a very clear giveup, i would assume he is likely overbluff.
Some ppl might be tight but spew only on tilt and pick bluff combos then, that dosent mean he generally overbluff.

There is also very easy to overbluff in some spots and in other spots you have to be very creative to fine enough bluffs.
This is very related to my oppinion on how important understanding what a ”balanced” strategy look like. Bcz if you dont know that its very hard to know the answer.

For example on a board where most draws complete it will be very hard for not deep thinking players to find enough bluffs.

Or when players have wide ranges and everything bricks its easy to fire to many bluffs because you need to giveup more air than usually.

In your hand example i would think he overbluffs if he fires FDS especially the higher ones.
If he had tripple a random hand without equity or anything going on like 78o, i would for sure start to catch him very light or if he is a good player question Why he did it, maybe he is making a exploit against you.

Playing deep is my favorite subject and strength

Suited connecters is fine when deep, but more than that suited aces is more valueable the deeper you are because you can cooler lower flushes for alots of BBs.
Its only deepstack if the effective stack is deep.

Playing deep gains EV to the in position player, if you know how to build good polarized ranges- mean you know How to leverage very big bets and put people in ugly spots where they lack nuts.

How you should play when 200-300+ bb deep i could talk about for hours But i Will give some easy guidelines that you can implement fairly easily.

Tighten up abit out of position especially against very strong players.
Loosen up abit When you are IP.
Start using very big bet sizings.
Be more careful when your range is capped and more aggressive when your opponent is capped.

Deception is also very important deep.
Example if you play to tight oop when you 3bet and only have high pairs, i would just call and make your life an hell on low runouts and you get to choose if you want to herocall overpair or not for 400bb on 5682J.

Fine hand, agree bet bigger ott and just ship the river in then at a smaller spr. He for tjs and qq sometimes to. Dont think call or jam have big ev diff

Hey, i wonder if there is a good rule of thumb when its okay to check jam low / midpairs at shallow SPRS.
I will give a few examples

We defend BB with 10bb flop 37Jr we have 78o or 34s, is it good idea to just checkjam?

We defend BB with 20bb flop 37Jr and have same hands.. Whats the strategy?

I understand it's also depending on how wide the villian is opening and cbetting- but as a general rule, so i dont make big punts hehe. Im comming from a cashgame background and feel stupid sometimes when i xjam midpairs and get snapped by toppairs. But on the other hand we deny equity and print when they betfold.

Dec. 15, 2019 | 8:22 p.m.

forCarlotta spot on! I used to get very tilted when i was playing lower stakes and didnt know if i did the correct play or not and keept doubting my lines.
Now i feel more confident that i make the correct plays i very rarely get tilted.

Dec. 15, 2019 | 3:51 p.m.

Just fold flop, he is betting into 2 players and have a decent range likely. As Played Turn is mandatory fold and river i don’t like dont bluff without a club in your hand, because your frequencys will get way out of line and bluffing to much.

Dec. 15, 2019 | 2:40 a.m.

Go to the page of a coach you like on RIO then there is a page for coaching if they offer private coaching!
What limits see you playing and What sample do you have?

It is very expected to loose quite alot of session even if you are a proffessional, do realizing that variance is a big thing is important but can take time.

If you are loosing over a big sample i would change something in your routines. But if you have Good winrate and wonder why you lose a session here and there, that have to happen to everyone even the best :)

Comment | HugO commented on AJ 3betpot Turn decision

Im mostly barreling AJ when checked to OTT. It's not mandatory tho. And yea i will jam most rivers aswell if bet turn.:)

Comment | HugO commented on NL25z A4s turn?

Dunno if you rangebet or not. Im mixing Otf so i Will barrel turn More than if you rangebet

Comment | HugO commented on NL25z A4s turn?

Fine hand, mostly overbetting turn. Betting your size is also cool to induce More calls by draws that are dead against you. But its a high frequency overbet turn with your bets.

Dec. 12, 2019 | 1:03 a.m.

BigFiszh yeah correct. I was abit unclear in my explanation. I know its a mix, i would probably bet small slightly More than 50%. Thanks for input :)

Comment | HugO commented on Top Set in squeezed 4-way

Too much too read. I Had a quick chat with a mid/highstake plo winner and he said that pot is completly fine. He would go 75% with the specific combo but said pot is also good size.
And that potsize bet do clearly exist in mw squuezed pots because equity denial is a huge thing i plo, and you balance that with some nice draws.

I leave this conversstion now

Comment | HugO commented on NL25z AQo three barrels

Agree with akissv7 got not much to add-
Turn im mostly overbetting it, your QK+ mostly want to overbet- and you have quite some semibluffs.

River this is very cloose, as akissv7 said, you have fine SD value, beating every missed nut fd- If you want to go for it overbet is the best sizing i think. with QK+ But checking is fine aswell, and bluff hands like JQ-J9s-Q9s- 56cc->89cc and that's fine.

Intresting spot tho- im curious what equilbrium looks like. I think AQ is not pure betting, but it probably bluffs sometimes..

Dec. 11, 2019 | 4:41 p.m.

Mandatory fold PF against 3bb open.
Flop is also a fold. Turn river Im calling down even though river might be loosing at this limit. Yes raising here probably makes you overbluff. I wouldnt hate jamming But its Quite spewy

Comment | HugO commented on Top Set in squeezed 4-way

Haha jeez, conversation getting salty^D

Okay im not saying im very good at plo, but i have watched alot of jnandez stuff so i think i have a decent clue how some spot should work- and this is how i think this spot works

First off all... We will still have pot bets in multiway spots(no doubt about that)- PLO is a extremly equity driven game compared to NLHE- in alot of spots you should just pot it even tho your hand is very faceup- equity runs way clooser and you just have to maximize your EV by denying equity- giving opponents the whorst price to suckout on you.

When deciding wich hands is good to cbet and for what sizing it will be alot about the sidecards- Hand like AA+ntfd, and AA+ ntfdblocker might work better into a smaller sizing- aces without much going on just wants to blast it right away generally.

Don't take my words for granted. But i think only using a 50% ish sizing in this spot is a pretty huge mistake in PLO.

Unfortunately im a nlhe pro and not so great at plo, would be happy to hear what PLO regs would say about it.

Comment | HugO commented on nl200 lost with top two

Yeah, what can you do. Im just folding, you have flushes and sets to continue. Its pretty hard for UTG to come up with bluff in this spot and he bets 3way makes it less likely he is bluffing.

Comment | HugO commented on NL25z A4s OOP 4bet pot

Would not raise allin as it almost forces your opponent to play perfectly folding most KK and QQ and only calling with AA, AK, AQ, AJs. You have the odds to call here and make a decision on the river.''

Good points, indeed call is probably slightly better. pretty bad card for our range, most ip bluffs catcher toppairs. Only benefit from xjam is getting value from hands like K9hh,K8hh-Q9-Q8hh. But yea i agree call is best.

Comment | HugO commented on NL25z A4s OOP 4bet pot

Very cloose preflop call against 4bet- in theory against balanced ranges you have a defend. But be carefull giving people cred to 4bet bluff enough here at lower limits would be my recommendation. I would fold, but anyway it will be supercloose EV and i might be wrong about my assumption about the pool you play.

As played i would x jam flop, it's a huge win to fold out AK-AQ-AT etc. Rather xc AQhh,AKhh if you have them.
Turn is fine, xc also fine dosent matter much i think.

1BuckPlease Btw i recommend posting HHs without showing results to get a more objective view of the hand. I did scroll thru the result tho, but its easy to watch the result and be too result oriented in the feedback.

Dec. 10, 2019 | 10:43 p.m.

Comment | HugO commented on NL25z J9o BBvsSB

Flop and turn bet is fine, but checking back either street is also fine because you have 3 streets on very few runouts.
As played i think you indeed have a clear valuebet. About the sizings OTR i recommend playing a more polarized strategy and going bigger, basically valuebetting 9x+ and i would use anything from 65%-> 200% depending on what i hold- with my valuebets and bluffs. Overbets would make sense with big flushes and boats at some % and this combo works better for 60-80%.

Against the xjam i think it's a pretty clear fold, especially against 16-14-5 guy i expect to run into value way to often. And from an theory perspective you are not that high up in range. This one have better removal to bluffcatch than a straight without hearts, but i would still happily fold this and calling flushes and boats. No need to pay off a nit here.

Dec. 10, 2019 | 10:39 p.m.

Guess it depends if you are a hobby player or want to become pro.
If you play for fun and dont feel to bad going broke you can play with a aggresive bankroll and allways redeposit later if you fail.
But if you want to be around for a long time be careful with taking shots, many ppl have gone broke because of bad bankroll management.. Even very skilled players..

Dec. 10, 2019 | 6:51 a.m.

Sorry didnt check his hud stats. Agree with akissv7 that he seems loose passive.
His wtsd 20 would make me inclined to check back the river as we are less likely to gain thin value. Short sample tho but if it was 20% over bigger sample i just checkback because it means he folds alot of his bluffcatchers. If it was say 35% its a absolutely mandstory valuebet OTR!

Dec. 9, 2019 | 11:45 p.m.

Whats your logic behind that you didnt think he can have so many 5x?
I think river bet is cloose in theory/ against though opponent.
However against this player type i like betting river to bet fold river, fish just tend to call down the bluffcatchers and not x raise A2 type hands.
He have 5x advantage wich makes river bet kind of marginal for 3 streets, guys agree?

If i would give 1 main tips it would be bet thin and fold to x raises against fish untill they proven they are really voilative/ spazzy. Unless that bet call will bleed money

Dec. 9, 2019 | 11:41 p.m.

First i would tag him as a whale :)
Its fine to write his whole preflop line. 3bet call c4b: JQo, float wide spazz turn.
Its nothing wrong or right How to take notes, just that you understand then and can use them ingame. Its easy to write to long notes like stories and then it Will be to much to read when multitabling
