Post | speedfreak1 posted in PLO: fold or shove?

sorry I don't know how to use the hand history feature

1c / 2c pokerstars zoom

hj raise to 7c I make 23c is sb with Ac9cAd8h

hj call flop : 7h8s10d

I check hj bet 31c I call

turn 2s

I check hj bet 71c and has 80c behind (I cover)

Board: 7h8s10d2s

should I shove this hand do you think? I could bet and go with it on the flop but didn't. On the turn I was thinking he could have some hands where I where favourite. I ended up folding though.

good vid cheers, 5 handed is entertaining

I would fold on the flop

reason being in 5o it's possible for player to have a flush + 2pr - you could attempt the same play and run into a boat quite easily

Jan. 27, 2020 | 4:03 a.m.

I like the raise

if sb 3 bets light I think it's good to open up an 4 bet some non AA hands

not containing an ace, this hand will run into AA more often but will have more equity when it does so I think it balances out

Jan. 27, 2020 | 3:55 a.m.

could you check/call the flop as an option?

I think the 2 and 3 might be more favourable for buttons range, he will have more small cards as opposed to us 3 betting

I would not fold to a raise on flop after cbetting, against 2 pr we have a lot of equity still

It could be worth it, best in my opinion is to play over a course of 6 months and see results, don't think there is a way to know otherwise, some very big wins can come from these types of games

nice video thanks,

I also thought mark was folding quite a lot of buttons but instructive to hear is better to air on the side of caution playing strong holdings

I don't think you can ever that accurately define a players pre flop range, and in a live game I would use my instinct to estimate a players category of hand (i.e something specific, not a range)

I don't see what would reason you to think a player is likely to check the flop with a K but if you feel that to be the case then i think i would call as i find it unlikely a player would attempt to value bet 3 streets with as weak as AA (although it is possible)

furthermore if you think the player has no hand you could call and if he bets the turn again then shove over the bet and make more money

Nov. 21, 2014 | 2:02 p.m.

you didn't say how much money you have so i'll assume you have V1 covered.

i don't think i would call with 4s5s in the first place even on the button for the first raise. it can only make one nut straight and can only make a very low flush and in a multiway pot in a live game my strategy is to make a hand that can dominate another hand e.g TsJs which could on a 7-8-9 flop make a lot of money against a player who is playing 5s6s. (btw I like the strategy of raising on the button against v2s raise)

I dislike the call against the limp raise for a multitude of reasons that i won't get into although i suppose it depends on the players tendancies. I don't see any reason to raise the flop as i think it risks a shove and if the player has no hand i think a steal can be accomplished by calling and then betting a checked turn.

i don't think i would lead. let's assume villain has 9 high flush which is the next hand down. why would he call? i think it is very hard for you to be bluffing after check calling twice. and why would you bet with an 8 high flush? to bet with an 8 high flush you would have to think you could get called by a 5 high flush, which can only beat a bluff.

Nov. 21, 2014 | 1:37 p.m.

i don't agree with the earlier street play but since that's not the question i won't get into that. in a nutshell i don't think it's a good bluffcatch. to call a check raise and also a pot size bet on turn i would assume a competent player would need a decent combo draw and the Qc is (in my mind) one of the most likely straight completing cards. even though it is entirely possible to be bluffed in this situation by a hand such as Q-Td-Ad-x i think the best play would be to let this one go

Nov. 21, 2014 | 1:28 p.m.

i find this a badly worded question. in a live game i think the decision whether or not to call depends entirely on what kind of player LAG is and I think that is impossible to put into words. I think the answer to this question is that it is a judgement call and simply if you think you have the best hand (either by this player bluffing with for example a missed wrap or attempting to value bet a low flush) then call. I'm sure there exist some LAG players who would not bet in this specific situation without a K or Q flush.

i ahve a question for phil galfond. when your seriously discussing strategy why don't you talk fast in hebrew?

Nov. 21, 2014 | 1:08 p.m.

i think the answer to that depends on whether or not the game is corrupt

Nov. 21, 2014 | 1:05 p.m.

why would there be an advantage to having less money in play than your opponent? what's the difference between you having 50bb and your opponent 200bb as opposed to you both having 50bb? i can't see how this offers any sort of 'advantage'

Nov. 21, 2014 | 1:03 p.m.

exactly what the fuck is the point in trying to figure out a theoretical best sizing when in practice a player will just have to use their judgement to pick i sizing in real time? you could argue that analysing these theoretical best sizings over and over again could help you more accurately make that judgement, but i think human instinct is more efficient than any amount of mathamatical anaylsis ever could be.

furthermore, why would they not corrupt the game?
