Hey Gusmaa, wazzuuup !!
In ATo hand at 4:10 minutes you said you going to call button shove, this shocked me cause he is 46bb deep, can you give me thougths about it ?
I can´t see opponents in general shove too wide in a spot like that, I undestand the 4bet bluff but not this call on a 46bb shove, or maybe you wanted to say that would call big blind shove?
Thank you and GL !!

Sb stats is more than tight, is a nit ! but, how many hands?
Should be this valid with at least 100 hands ( of course is preferable way more )
3b stats is interesting, 6% ( not bluffs probably ) but as I said maybe the sample of villains hand is not enought to take in consideration.

@felipejay, don´t think the SB range on this reshove is little more wide ?

not so much, but at least I think we can rejam AQs for 30bb effectives that is not including on icmizer print

I´m not sure, I will check some charts I have

Hey, joining the discussion here!
Seems to me this is a kind of spot ( paired boards ) where we want to extract just one street of value, right?
x/r otf is a option but I thing villains range contains more 8x then our range.
So, I think check flop and bet small size on turn is a good idea, most part of the times the flush draws will miss the turn and we will extract value of them pursuiting the draw to the river.

I want to point out too that on low stakes villains will not play thinking in "balance" but it´s important for us wanting to evolve and move up know how balance work on the spots, so we can adjust properly to the field.

Comment | tscaranto commented on QQ vs BU

hard hand!!

would be better bet bigger flop and turn? ( that way villain don´t get the right odds to call with flush draw hands )

river, I really don´t know what to do!! lol!......

In a board like this where we are not the agressor you should just call flop and control the pot, as played I think you overvalued your hand

May 30, 2016 | 4:27 p.m.

I used to just min raise (2x) preflop, so the 3bet would be smaller and we can control the pot better since preflop.
check-check, call turn, and call river, and maybe we can survive with something like 10bb´s

May 30, 2016 | 2:31 p.m.

Yeah, shove pre sounds really good!

We have to be aware of the stack´s depth to our left, but I think we don´t have to be afraid of rejams.

With 20-30bb I open raise with a dynamic in mind , part of my range is open/call and part is open/fold and I determine for each opponent style and stacks of my left how this will be applied.

A simple example, I´m going to open 22 from UTG with 30bb.
There are two opponents with 6bb, and others between 15-20.
I open/call any shove from the oponnents with 6bb, and fold to the others.

Maybe, this can guide you on the process of thinking in ranges against ranges, I cannot elaborate a better post, cause my english is very limited.

Thanks, In fact there is some marginal hands and a lot of hands that will be ev to us gii in this spot.
The best hands are blocked by my K and many of the good hands for this board is not on the opponent limp/call range.

July 30, 2015 | 4:21 p.m.

Let´s do it!, thanks !

July 30, 2015 | 2:41 p.m.

Yes, a bigger cbet is better, thanks!!

The way was played, I just donk shove OTF.
Fold equity + Flush draw equity ( with 2 cards that complete a str fls as a plus), I see no point in check that hand and take the risk to see a blank turn.
Of course Fold PF is the way to easy game early after the squeeze

July 28, 2015 | 6 p.m.

Thanks, basically with KKxx we have to play cautious when facing aggression and many flops will not help, we will looking for a set on flop to get allin

I am taking my very first steps in PLO2, looking to move up fast as possible to PLO5 and PLO10.
Part of this plan is being more active here on forum

I realized that 5b this hand was not a good idea, but on the FLOP seems very okay to put all the stack.

Can u guys give me some insights in how to approach the game?

Was too risky the move on flop?

Comment | tscaranto commented on Book recommendation

I never read it, but thanks for the suggestion, I'm surely   gonna take a look

Hey Joe,

in this case I would just use M-Zone concept by Dan Harrington.

M-Zone indicates you have 3 Orbits until be blinded out, so u will see about of 20 hands. ( of couse u gonna lose fold

equity when just remaining 1 Orbit )

Thinking in 'spots', sure you gonna find a better on, a better Ax on better position, a suited connector on a gap until you on late position, maybe a very nice pocket pair.

A8o is so weak at this position and you are just 3 players left to reach the FT.

M-Zone also will be very usefull to calculate the Zone of our opponentes and help on thinking process of the remaining orbits.

Comment | tscaranto commented on Book recommendation

Hy Benn, you can try a fast read at sitandgoplanet.com there are an ebook called $16 Per Hour SNG Blueprint that adress some importante concepts like ICM, BUBBLE, Range vs SNG Stage, etc..

also there is a book called Head´s Up No Limit Holdém by Collin Moshman despite been a Heads Up book the infos are very useful for SNG too.

July 21, 2014 | 5:42 p.m.

and remember to play your stack in position and with good hands like pairs, suited connectors, 1-gap connectors, I personaly would play some kind of small ball ( folding a lot of flops when getting some hostility) and putting pressure as NoHubris said on medium stacks.
