If you are sure they are only 4betting KK-AA, mixing AK-QQ, and have 0 bluffs, at that point you can do some drastic exploits and probably fold huge part of your 3b range and just shove kk-aa. But that's some big assumptions wich i would be very carefull making, it's more likely you are just running bad in these spots and maybe forgetting the times you 5b and win the pot because they fold pre(thats a big win). check database, 5b success and make sure you're not just result oriented or overvalueing AK. Once you get called, you basically flip or are slightly behind.

It has to to with the 3card straight turn. If you put a brick on KTx you Will se se much larger size and checka used mainly. If the board K83Q aswell. But on any 3 straight turn sizing smaller is mostly used.
Same concept IP in srp

Yeah you're right. More defending and less 4betting IP deeper, you want to keep SPR higher and play more streets especially deeper. One pair hands becomes ''weaker'' like stacking of an overpair can never be a bad thing at 100bb, but it defently can be a blunder at 200-300bb deep depending on the spot.
From what i've seen in sims, OOP is forced to play a more passive postflop strat deeper, checking at higher frequency on the whole compared to 100bb. Makes sense, because we are more scared of running into nutted hands and position is more valueable. At 100bb, you can 3bet oop and just bet flop big,jam turn, or xjam turn etc.

Totally agree with DNegs98
And Indeed very important to be ready to blast of, so we make 8x+ hate life.
I would be abit carefull assuming regs overcb this type of board tho, think most regs realize 3 low cards is Pretty Damn bad for sb. The Value of overpairs goes down A lot, any 5/6/9/T brings even more straights.
But at lower stakes, i think its a Pretty cool line if people just look at their hand, pair ok lets bet something, and are not used to getting rr/barrreld alot, Indeed you could Run them over of That’s the case.

Would be easier if you explained more, like What limit you play, are you winning or not etc.
There is alot of decent/good free material on youtube, you can watch rio videos etc and see how good players Play/think.
I would recommend
* start with the common spots, and learn in decent. Preflop for example, get a decent grasp(no Need to be perfect)
* then go to common postflop spots, cbetting strategies. Then turn river play etc.
Getting a solver would be good if you want to learn more about GTO, i wouldnt say its mandatory if you look to play lowstakes only, But otherwise i think it is. Should also make you better quicker.
Getting a coach is very good if you can afford it. They can Hopefully point out exactly Where you struggle so you can plug leaks quicker and focus on Whats most important for you specifically right now.

Pretty complicated turn. I prefer to put all my range into 50/75% sizing whatever you prefer. So we can still bet some sets, straights etc.
I dont totally agree that we should always be aiming to polarize With nuts/nut blockers yet OTT. Many good things can happen by you bettting a smaller size to, you force him to find bluffs raises, you will still get raised from alot of K/Qhigh flushes so you dont loose value against other flushes while still protecting your more marginal valuebets by having them in the same sizing.
On the river: after picking a smaller bet, i would have multiple sizings, and big overbet jam would be fine with nutflushes and some nutblockers indeed.

Agree with RaoulFlush
In theory i think it's a pure/high frequency xb. But in practice i think he have alot of 88-JJ, so unless he is a station i would think about bluffing this. 22-66 would be bluffed more because you loose to the occasional 66-77. And that's the reason 77 will mostly take the SDev in theory.
A more obvious example: TT would never bluff, but 22 would almost always bluff. 77 is in the middle. So having a read on your opponent could be worth alot.

I dont like xr 4way in a limped pot, They are likely sticky players and They have a bunch of suited trash wich will cooler you, so rather go with bigger fds and be very valueheavy/ use strong draws because your value dont come from making them make big folds.
Otr your combo is Pretty good to go for it, but your likely up against very sticky players who especially hate folding pairs when all draws bricks. Its still cloose, because the have so many busted better draws and TJo maybe.
Feb. 15, 2021 | 12:33 a.m.
I prefer checkback turn and potentially bluffcatch rivers. If you want to ramp up the aggression just go very intense with your straight draws and barrel them. Even some very low equity stuff could barrel if you think your opponents are overfolding.
Feb. 14, 2021 | 6:55 p.m.
nh, i would be much more inclined to barrel A5 on turns above T-> to put alot of pressure on his middling pairs wich should fold alot. On the 88, he gets there with 67s, 88, 8Ts and hands like 78s 66,77 got decent equity.
I look to check because of that, calling turn is fine, but im not thrilled calling Q river when some of his bluffs connect and its hard for him to find air. If the river is a brick it makes sense to herocall.
Feb. 4, 2021 | 6:22 p.m.
I prefer to call hands like AA,KK,JJ,AJ.
QQ is just more important to get in and protect it's equity against hands like KTdd ATdd,QK and stacking AJ KJ before the board gets terrible.
You're sometimes loosing to sets here but thats supposed to happen, you just go broke with QQ here all the time BTN vs CO if he got you beat, np nh.
Feb. 4, 2021 | 6:14 p.m.
maco yeah it’s Pretty hard to know his range, if we know He’s defending low pairs and all sorts of broadways in This spot it becomes much more cbetted. Taking notes at showdowns is Pretty helpfull.
If he have very low fold to sqz/3bet you are doing better, if he folds much you’re in More trouble here..
Feb. 4, 2021 | 6:04 p.m.
I would say flop is better for him, he lacks QQ+. But his range is likely very heavy around 88-99 AQ and Maybe some suited broadways. Against a big squueze he shouldn’t have many low pairs, They shouldnt call 3bb rfi to begin if he’s playing good.
I would do alot of checking because of that, biggest reason that 88/99 is such a part of his range.
Ott its dicey, i get the idea behind jamming to deny equity from pair+draws. But you are obviously getting snapped by 88/99/AQ alot. It feels like putting in abit too much bbs in the pot, it’s a though board.
Feb. 4, 2021 | 5:39 a.m.
Can anyone explain the low betting frequency here? I get it, we dont have 66-77 but oop have it 100% of the times in this sim. It's all about that or something else? I ran a new sim and put 26Qr. Then it switched to 100% cbet small sizing.
Jan. 24, 2021 | 9:35 p.m.
Could still cbet high frequency, not that scary board co vs btn. He have alot of bricked Broadways. Im also fine with checkjamming flop, decent equity and low spr. Against his flop size it gets dicey tho, because it looks like he is More value heavy and not going to have any bet folds.
Jan. 6, 2021 | 9:20 p.m.
Flop and river is well played. Turn Is questionable. You have so many ”autobluffs” so this feels abit crazy if you do it frequently. If you are aware that you cant do it to often i think its fine, it gives you bluffs on favourable rivers like this. Alot of players will struggle to fire bluffs on this river due to only barreling turn with natural draws. But you can still tripple 78/78, some backdoor fds etc.
Jan. 2, 2021 | 9:33 p.m.
I agree with all RaoulFlush said. Against a solid Cc range in this spot, he i doing very well here, So you want to be more polarized is my feeling and check at a high frequency. Havent looked to much into spots like this in solvers because its so rare that Good reg coldcall 3bets :P i would probably have rangechecked ingame with your reads.
Jan. 2, 2021 | 9:25 p.m.
''and see if you think that BB is going to come anywhere near a perfect defense (hint, he won't). ''
That depends alot on what stakes you are playing, if you play somewhat high, regs will have a very good understanding how to defend against high% cbets.
It's basically one of the first spots you start studying when you get a solver because it's such a common spot.
People are more likely to missplay less common spots. Like Probes, delaycbets. Also facing uncommon sizings like 80-110% is harder to play against because its less used and people priority to study against the most common sizings.
Im not saying rangebets/high freq small size is bad, its still the most used strategy, but if you watch very good players, i would say very few of them are limited to a small cbets. Its very easy to play against someone who always using 30% or checks. And even if you can defend properly against odd sizings, i belive more people will get out of their comfort zone.

Pretty Ugly spot if BB is not a volative profile. I end up calling down, But mainly hoping for a shop.
Stabing flop big on this texture 3way and firing turn looks incredibly strong imo and firing turn dosent makes it better. I wouldnt mind not folding turn/river But Thats really though ingame.
He is basically barreling in to a range Thats very obviously Ax or better.
A easier way to play your hand would just be to bet very small flop and probably bet bet bet small all streets, i think Thats higher ev rather than rely on your opponents starting to bluff to much/ enough on this texture. AA/QQ makes More sense checking
Dec. 17, 2020 | 1:45 p.m.
I think RaoulFlush nailed it.
Im still using a smaller RFI from BTN, 2.2bb. If you use a 3.5bb you have to open a tighter range.
I have seen some succesful highstakes pros using 3.5bb otb, so it's defently a viable strategy, but the norm is still a smaller sizing. Maybe it will change overtime, i think bigger size have higher EV in theory, in practice smaller size might induce more mistakes im not sure.
3.5bb is cool because people are less used to it and might screw up call/3bet ranges even more.
1BuckPlease If you change the rfi sizing in snowie you can se that it have a big impact on how wide range you can profitable open.
