Cool, thanks for the answers!

Maybe not opening wider but what about calling big pairs in multiway pots to setmine?
If people are playing like 50% of their hands and pay off with bad 2 pairs etc, would it not be profitable?

Feb. 14, 2024 | 12:27 p.m.

I wonder if there are any merits by playing a bit wider than Vision suggest? Im mostly talkling about for example opening all suited kings and like QQ89ss from EP/MP which otherwise would be a fold at my stakes. And what about coldcalling those high pairs in multiway pots vs fish, say QQ73sss/QJJ5ss from late positions or in the blinds to purely setmine and likely getting paid when we hit. And much easier to get in a lot of money on the flop in multiway pots. If fishes are opening/calling trash hands WAY wider than GTO and also being very sticky on the flop, shouldn't we deviate and be able to call a bit wider? I know rake is a concern but if the fish will stack off too light, won't that make up for it?
The GTO ranges are so nitty it is insane and made the game way less fun imo

Great to have you back!

The KK54 you 3bet @ 10:00 vs 50bb stack, do you think it's ok to go much wider than Vision if you believe villain is opening way wider than GTO? (As he did, J972ss). Would it be ridicolous to 3bet this hand if it were rainbow vs a fish?

Jan. 29, 2024 | 11:54 a.m.

44:50, we are not calling here with our hand? Can't we start lead on a Ten, King and an eight if we x/c?
And when we hit a 4, villain is very likely to continue to bluff/bet for value. Sometimes we are even ahead OTF and villain could slow down on some turns.

I checked the print screen again, and he wrote it on the flop already. I totally get it that you can call out cards when you are all-in, but doing so when we still got streets left to play seems very very odd.

It's just scary that twice I have seen someone accidently (?) write "2" in the chat on the turn already, and this was on Ah4c3c 8h 2d , him holding 5599. Took screenshot of this.
And the bad beats vs the cash out guys that takes suuuper long to think about it every time, same players, before they decide to cash out or not. I get it that you want to think about it sometimes, but not every single time even in small pots. It is absolutely shocking that I don't get the same bad beats vs regs.

Huge fish that is playing super loose pre but takes forever to just call a 3b BBvsBTN and then completely nails the flop on a flop that I will pot/call off very often.
Really makes you wonder tbh...

June 5, 2020 | 12:25 a.m.

Honestly, I don't think this thread should be completely ignored. I am a winning player at PLO 50z and winning there for a lot of bbs/100 (80k sample). Ever since the "Cash out" feature was introduced, some shady things are happening in my opinion. Obviously people will just laugh when you talk about it, but there has been so many shady things in Poker so I don't see why something could go on on a site that is not the same one we know from 5+ years ago. Don't tell me "why would they do something like that, absolutely no reason", because with the cash out feature there is obviously a lot of reasons to let that happen.

Seriously, I had saved a lot of different HHs to a special categorie in HM3 where I felt very very suspicious. Like, getting squeezed out from a pot preflop from a very tight player and then he shows up with 2368r while I would have flopped a set. Now I can't even find the hands. Wouldn't that be genius to just delete all these HHs if something were going on? It is very scary tbh and I don't know how to investigate it further.

And like OP says, the 10% and below just happends a little bit too often and always vs "cash out" players and not vs regs.

@28.18 Gotta love this. "I can't fold... just yet. The question is, do I wanna jam" :D kinda reminds me of that serie "The Micros" where he is considering folding on the river but instead shoves, haha!

Hopefully we will get some new essential videos from you soon Phil!

Feb. 11, 2020 | 1:47 p.m.

Also, is Ah4hAs2d considered to be medium strong/weak Aces? We probably have to check fold quite some flops but when we do flop our wheel draw, we should be able to pot GII on most flops 100bb deep and do fine?

Thanks Devwil, very informative answer!

Yeah I completely agree that there is no need to be as aggressive as I have been because I don't get any folds preflop or isolate the opener anyways in a lot of cases. Also, RFI ranges seems way too wide in Matrix in some spots with AKxx AQxx from early positions in my opinion. At least on lowstakes.

Yep, I will have to tighten up with my overpairs from now on. I have been playing Zoom where ranges are even tighter, so probably even a bigger case to not be too sqz happy? For example, on a reg table I could easily see a fish just call when he gets 3-bet with bad AAxx 100bbs+ deep.

I will keep watching videos and hope to pick up more of these spots. I really love how Phil goes deep into a lot of spots, but sometimes I wish I could just have a liveplay footage of 10 hours of non stop playing to really get a feel for preflop. Will have to upgrade to Elite or get a coach I guess to improve faster!

Sept. 18, 2019 | 10:44 a.m.

Do we need to be a lot tighter with a squeeze compared to a 3b? I think I have been losing so much money by both 3-betting but probably the most by squeezing way too many hands (often single suited overpairs, AQQx, AKKx, and most single suited AA except the worse ones like AA82ss. I happily 3bet & sqz AA42ss, is that a mistake?) and end up in a multiway pot and go broke with my overpair. For example, should I 3b AA75ss SB vs CO but just call the same hand if MP opens and CO calls? Ace high suit that is.

What would you suggest me to do to improve this BIG leak that I have? I am watching videos from Phil but the spots has not really been there that often... Just keep watching or? I have been using PLO Matrix, but yeah, it has not really worked out...

Would really appreciate advice!! :)

OMGClayAiken, who would have thought? =)

Yep, next time I will not play it so aggressive.
Really hope I can start play on RIO Poker soon!

Nothing to do here really. Pot the flop is the only way to go with this hand imo.

Happy New Year!

Have already PMed him so that's why I made this post. Did not mean to come up as arrogant

sorry, what i meant was that he has KK/JJ on the turn a lot and that is why im considering to just check call turn cause usually when i bet i just get a pot size raise in my face. agree he almost never has JJ/KK on the river.
thanks for answering

March 11, 2016 | 9:58 p.m.

so just bet call against SB? and if CO calls, keep betting on all cards that doesn't pair the board and maybe not on a 5 or a 6 either?
