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!

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!

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 :-)

May 8, 2020 | 4:51 p.m.

great video cheers!

For check raising half pot bet by full pot interested me too so say pot is 10, bet is 5, full raise makes 25 so 25:15 or 5:3 :)

nice video with exciting end!

very good videos cheers :-)

thx for the video as always

I liked the play with the QT checking on K-J-9, has anyone else noticed the board pairs more often playing Omaha than texas holdem? ;)

I would imagine they do a lot of market research to find which rake can maximise their profits and that's why it is what it is.

I don't find it to be ridiculously high myself.

Post | speedfreak1 posted in Chatter: How do pre-flop sims work?


Sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

I watched a video recommending some pre-flop ranges for NLH that were based on a sim.

Just wondering how they work (or how do the sims work in general)? Do they run many runouts with different strategies or analyze databases of real hands or some other method? Do they randomly simulate hands or are they powerful enough to explore every node is what i'm getting at.

I would have thought preflop too complex and vast to be analyzed by a computer, since there are so many variables e.g possible boards with differing strategies and bet sizes. Although this seems not to be the case.

Thanks if anyone can explain this, I had a quick look on google but to no avail.

I used to play 6 card and 5 card Omaha 3 times a week live so have some experience.

I would play with 50 buy-ins although bearing in mind that IMO it is definitely within reason to lose all this, even having an edge in the game.

5 card and 6 card PLO get extremely swingy, a lot more so than one might imagine.

The most successful players were very aggressive and with a high variance style.

Actually I remember one night I lost £2k playing £1/£1 half-pot limit :) comparably have had a £7k win playing £1/£2 pot limit. (albeit with some straddling) To give you some idea of swings that are possible, these were quite common.

Good luck!

thx quality vid was unsure about these spots!

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.

Jan. 29, 2020 | 7:10 p.m.

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
