it was the same hand you had the kk48 (50 min)

it was opened, you 3bet and SB cold called AKQ6 double suited which you refferred to as a disaster.

you are entering the mind of a 5c/10c reg here but ,while i wouldn't cold call, if the other players were splashy enough SB's hand looks close to a 4 bet candidate?

it's possible i need to tighten up

thx for the vid cool watchings

nice turn catch with the KK48 :) (50 min mark)

in my experience there's a fair amount of cold calling 3 bets at these stakes as in this hand. The AKQ6 dbs probably plays better as a raise as opposed to a cold call, and best as a fold.

i think i like checking the turn with this hand

i do think it's possible to be called by 99-QQ, although it is offset by the possibility of betting straight into an Ace. Some QQ and JJ may 4bet pre, so these may be less weighted.

as played i think i would check fold river but expect to win in some check check scenarios.

I don't think the hand is too face up - even though you said you probably wouldn't bet turn with AK-AQ for this sizing, I reckon it does make some sense to do this (AA makes sense for this size too) as it sets up a roughly pot sized river shove and there isn't anything to protect against.

looks good to me

i wouldn't particularly consider it an overbet as i reckon a large bet on the turn would be committing anyways with the SPR

Oct. 9, 2020 | 1:13 a.m.

yea sorry i've confused myself as well not sure what i was trying to say

Oct. 9, 2020 | 1:09 a.m.

Hey really cool video thanks for posting.

The hand at 31:50 where you said why is he betting A-J on 4-7-8-T, I think he bet because a 9 makes a straight for him and no other reason.

I say this because this is how I started playing poker, just bet any time I had outs :)

Oct. 8, 2020 | 10:53 p.m.

cool video thanks

i wouldn't beat yourself up about the bluff attempt with the 9, it's always fun to give it a go :)

It sounds like villain is building the pot a lot pre flop OOP?

I think this is generally not good play and should give some form of advantage if you are playing bigger pots in position than your opponent

Oct. 7, 2020 | 11:29 a.m.

should have been clear these winrate stats are overall including all positions, i don't know how to find winrate from specific positions on HEM yet

Oct. 7, 2020 | 10:45 a.m.

thanks that's a good way of looking at it. I tend to play most 3 card hands out of the blinds with the pot odds but probably a lot of them are dominated.

i am losing 20bb per 100 at 5c/10c over 20k hands so you are right i would actually lose less folding every hand!
conversly at 1c/2c i am up 50bb/100 over 10k hands.

so definetely too small a sample.

i have been playing recreationally for years but joined the site to try and improve, thanks for the tip!

Comment | speedfreak1 commented on Basics

doyle brunsons super system 2 has a fantastic chapter on pot limit omaha. although some of the ideas (such as not raising at all in EP, and not raising AA hands) could be considered outdated, the overview of the basic concepts is top notch imo

Comment | speedfreak1 commented on preflop question

I wouldn't consider 26/21 to be particularly tight.

I would guess to raise 2 limpers with 4 high cards or some double suited middle stuff.

A9TJ with a suit is a slam dunk to play this hand in my book (not to say it is correct!). I like these hands with a perfect 3-straight that can flop monster wraps or combo hands

I just installed holdem manager and I am losing absoloute chunks out of the big blind.

I am VPIP 60% roughly, as a starting point does anyone know if this is reasonable or willing to share their VPIP?

On the button it is the opposite I am winning chunks VPIP 50%.

Is this normal to lose chunks out the BB? On a side note I cant figure out how to filter the positional report by stake on HEM so results may be slightly skewed.

Poker 2020 - play a couple hundred thousand hands and then see how you got on.

Really liked this comment :)

cool vid as always

Oct. 5, 2020 | 10:57 a.m.

cool hand with the a458. really wanted to pot the river.

thanks for video enjoyed it

Sept. 28, 2020 | 10:43 a.m.

cool video enjoyed it thanks. was also tempted to 4 bet the 89QQ :)

Sept. 17, 2020 | 5:54 p.m.

hey cool video thanks!

in particular found the 4 bet choices preflop quite instructive

thanks for the video, took some good points away about spots to tighten up where I was playing too liberally.

I like calling with AA on the 14 min for the reason that we don't want to get it in and aren't pushing too much equity against pair + straight draws.

I noticed early on you 3 bet A3s against a UTG and later folded it in CO vs HJ open. I was wondering if this was due to stats or if you 3 bet with a frequency? I play low stakes and have been trying to make my PF ranges as solid as possible. I mostly have been folding A2-A4 and playing A5s+ which could mean I am not well represented in having any 2's through 4's in my range?

I think the QKd can be folded. I find it unlikely in a 3 way 3 bet pot that button will raise a smaller flush or straight. I think at higher stakes a player could turn JT or similar into a bluff? Again I find this unlikely at 100NL.

Cheers again for the vid!

hey, that was a quality video. especially liked the interactive element of trying to put the hands into categories and definitely took a lot of points away from it. cheers!

One of the first thing I learned playing PLO is you can't bluff a 4 way pot (i.e 2 is the most you can get to fold).

Small bets work well in multi-way pots, and look for hands which have multiple ways to make the nuts and are likely to be the nuts by the river.

E.g be careful with a lone QT on K-J-9 single suited as it is unlikely to still be the nuts by the river. Look instead to have TJQK with a suit or something similar which has redraws.

It is usually not a good idea to draw to a small flush, low wrap, or to a straight when there is a flush draw present. Try to always draw to the nut hand.

I have played many a game like this live and the variance is insane but so are the rewards :)

Best of luck!

Nice choice of bluff by chipsncrips on the final hand, without a heart unblocking mogli's most likely bet/check/folds!

May 26, 2020 | 9:04 a.m.

Great vid cheers.

I found the second hand very interesting. If you had a read that utg 4bet player will play face up and bet overpairs but check AK I think it could make the TT cold call profitable. To be somewhat results orientated he managed to get the guy to put in 150 bb with A high and might have been planning to fold to flop/turn pressure!

May 26, 2020 | 8:53 a.m.

quality video cheers.

found it very instructive that KJ6 ss was near 100% check oop as the raiser. always thought that the higher boards in general were better for the pfr, but solver clearlly shows that with the wet texture and being oop with a high spr makes it a clear check.

I will have to stop betting these hands to try and take the pot down!

Looking forward to more vids!

May 26, 2020 | 6:49 a.m.

good vid thx and congrats on the boy!

May 22, 2020 | 10:53 p.m.

I think that means roughly 60% of the time to break even? Seems ambitious to me too, nice play :-)
