So, should I have 2 types of diapason here? Or I better bet 3\4 with whole part of my range here? How can I determine, where I can have 2 differend diapasons and use different sizings? Thx!

HJ checks, Hero bets $13, HJ raises to $44.62, Hero calls $31.62
So. Here we go. When i bet 1\3 here, it`s so polarised, like AA,88 + air. Hand like 78T9 is possible here too. It`s obv, that i have more air here, but with such sizings it`s ok (isnt it?) . If i bet 3\4, it`s more depolarised,66, A8,A6, weaker wraps, AT9*,A78* (etc.) here. This is why I think, villaint should not raise any hand instead of wrap\air here, cuz with hands like A8,A6,66,88 he is behind vs my diapason and more important - he will have more EV playing ch\c w his strong part of diapason. This is why i decided to call and stack-off on cards, which not help him (not ends any draws). I fold on 4,5,7,9,T. And i gonna shove at 2,3,6,8,J+. May be T..

well, see your point, find myself so hard to argue with it for now. Need to work with arguments a little bit more with ppt. For now, new qestion - where can I find something good about plo combinatory?

And againg, thx for answers, I take all this info and work with it.

May 6, 2013 | 6:19 p.m.

OK, just give me some time to think about it and ill be back with some more questions. Big thx for answers, will be happy to see some more .

PS: Btw looks like everything said here is about exlpoitive game.

PPS: IS it any soft like Flopzilla for omaha available?

Ok, we probably can`t mess around with such a dry boards in 4bet pots . But what if we call all our weak or strong AAxx pre and goes AI on boards like 622 w KK the same way, just if he shove all his strong rundowns too, may be we can get 50% call range and continue decent amount of times? Or it`s not that matter, idk

And the second thing - if we arguing about raise \ 3bet pots only, where we can continue a lot more, is it reasonable to stand with 50% call versus potbet or should I take some another numbers for this point?

Thx a lot for answers

1. When we construct our bluff range, should we include some complete air and\or hands with fairly low potential ,or draw hands + blockers to opponent value range\potential value range is enough?

2. When we construct our value range, should we prefer hands, which nominally more stronger flop, but have less backdoor potential, or pick hands, which nominally weaker flop, but have nuts backdoor potential? Exist strong hands like pair+fd or good combodraws. Ask it cuz cbeting whole ourĀ  value range is not good, arguing about content of it.

3. How much should we care on postflop about our preflop capped range? For example, if we flat pre, opponent can exclude some AAxx,KKxx , good rundowns (is it matter?).

4. Opponent pots flop, should we continue 50% or more? In game, where bluffs ( I mean side of range with full air) have 0 equity, we have to continue 50% vs potbet , in plo bluffs have got equity, looks like we have to fold less to make his bluffs break-even (not with positive EV) or burn his equity with raises, but it`s hard to balance.

I thought he will never bliff river , but can do it on turn. Looks like im not nitty enough

May 2, 2013 | 12:36 a.m.

I think sizing is absolutely fine versus regish guy, versus fish-passive we can take a little more on turn, like 4.35 (2 blinds, why not) and absolutely legal bet a little river, about 5-7 , I think Q is good card to have some herocalls by villian, because we block AK, A9 would be hard call for him with any overcard on river, but if he hold some AQ - it`s call like always for him. Actualy we cant miss value from 99

May 1, 2013 | 3:11 p.m.

Thx a lot, sir. Which is limit, when i should start to think about exploitability , NL400 and higher?

Think I had to donkbet here. UTG is fish, BTN reg Xequetip, 28/25 3bet 10. Checked flop because feel myself so comfortable with my strong hand and redraw. Called turn because i can have any set (fullhouse) in my diapason and dont wait 3rd barrel with nothing from him, or if it`s come - it will be so polarized, and I feel it`s like 20% bluff max.
Should i find calls here and in what situation? Any general misstakes here ?

Sorry for my worst english , here is my thoughts:

I did that kind of sizing just to let him comfortable call my cbet w 6x type of hand and catch my bluffs or shove w AA . If I bet pot, he shove only hand better and fold another. Kinda mind games, I hope you inderstand. But faced flop AI. In my NLHE expirience - gonna fold here, but his line is so ugly , like he does not give a damn about my sizings or red my soul. And even so , looks like im exploitable as hell if fold my AA here, or it`s not important?

Easy fold here or tough call?

Sorry-sorry for bad english : (

I can understand your statement "Flop is ok" only in the context of combinatory, but I think it`s totally fail to ch\r here because:
1. We can rep here only 4 good flushdraws (JT,QJ,89,T9) and A9 proly. Not much.
2. We can easily rep very wide Ax,Kx diapason check\calling here ( floating him) and still have fairy outs here for Ten, which give us good hidden nuts. More of it - any diamond turn can give us reasons for hiddens ch\r, which have much more FE.


April 28, 2013 | 11:50 a.m.

Yeah, it`s fine option too, I was a little bit cranky atm . And anyway it`s zoomish table, players here a like "oh, nuts? Bet! Oh, no nuts? Fold!"

April 27, 2013 | 2:49 a.m.

It`s my habit from NLHE - turn hands , good in bluff catch, into bluff when opponent can probably bluff with best hand lol. Thx for opinion!

Hero checks, MP checks, CO bets $88

So, CO iskinda retarded player like 33\27, 3bet 9, fold to 3bet obviosly 0.

MP looks regish, notmuch info.

So, i wanted to steal pot at flop , having blocker to nuts (not much, but smhtng). Actualy had no idea, what hands they both can calling here. Only thoughts compared with CO hands - it`s may be some like AsTsQxJx, can`t imagine him plays weak QJo hand like this. So, only 1-2 very strong hands can do this, in my mind. Not really much.
And question is - can we bluff here?

April 26, 2013 | 10:32 p.m.

Oh , thanks a lot.

I meant the type of regular, who we can`t stack off pre and get much value 3betting vs.

Post | Awesome Dawg posted in NLHE: Need help in general pls.
Hello guys! Im trying to improve my game for now, and have met some problems with 2 spots, find myself absolutely empty in understanding of it:

1. How do we play with TT-JJ versus regulars, who opens from UTG and have around 15% pfr? I means ... it`s hard to play with it vs any player, who not very tight (17\13) and not a monkey.
2. Imagine if we are on BB\SB ( not much difference I think) 3betting BTN\CO regular w KQ,QJ or T9s (why not) and catch second pair on Ahigh board .
Let it be AQ4,AJ5 or AT5. I think we behind most part of a time, is it stats-depending spot, or you can find some general advices?

Big thx , big respect to community, your Dawg, who can be awesome.

April 21, 2013 | 6:15 p.m.

I think his overbetting range should be balanced like strong hands to pretty weak busted draws. If it`s no overal gameflow adjustment , we have to find a key in call frequency. I dont know, it was an adjustment , when you ch/c w A9, or it`s your ch/c range there, but we need to calculate , how many hands better you`ll have here for ch/c and compare it with villain tendency to agressively barreling. Also we need some information about his strong hands , which he not overbet river before. You gave not enough information for such a specific spot.

Feb. 19, 2013 | 11:47 p.m.

to BigFiszh: Any GTO range is exploitable by some sides of opponents unbalanced parts. For example - lets imagine that we have optimal cbet range compared with particular board. Let it be 55%-55%-55%. So, we might that opponent folding optimal, but he dont - he folds too much flop (imagine that he call or fold, never raise) . Than we have next problem - we lost EV by betting the same range flop (but it`s ok, we still unexploitable), and we bets too much turn ,even if it`s compare with our optimal range, because villian have stronger diapason , that makes our optimal bet turn exploitable. In fact, playing optimal line this spot, villian lost EV on flop by folding too much, we lost EV on turn by betting too much (compared to this opponent) and it`s seems like exploitable for us not on flop but on turn. If we have any information - we have to change our optimal strategy, this is called edje. I think so..
