C-Betting strategy shifts significantly on lockdown boards compared to dynamic boards. In which ways though?

ProVideo | Richard Gryko posted in : Theory In Practice Part 1

In the theory in practice segment, Cory and Richard join forces to analyze some real life hand history examples. In these examples we show you how concepts discussed in the theory videos apply in practice. In the first video we look at defending vs a turn probe on a board that is quite bad for the IP player. Next, an OOP as the PFR situation is analyzed. And finally, we look at a situation where we defend the big blind facing a raise from a tighter opponent and we see a flop with a reasonable leading frequency.

Another entry into the value threshold series. This time it's all about the river after we C-Bet the flop but check back the turn.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

Facing large bets on the river can be quite tricky. We have a lot of hands that seem like decent bluff catchers but it's hard to select the right ones. In this video Richard looks at a couple fundamental concepts that we have to consider when we think about bluff catching certain combos.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

In the second installment Cory goes over the spots that he wasn't able to cover in the last video.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

Richard continues exploring the decision making processes by introducing a simple 3 step approach which builds on concepts from the previous videos 1-1 and 1-2 to tie a knot in our in game decision making.

In the second part, we start by analyzing a tricky bluff-catching situation facing large bets from an aggressive opponent on a paired board. What type of hands do we bluffcatch with? Next, we look at a turn probing situation with a board pairing turn. And finally, we look at another turn probing situation where we turn a straight on a flushing turn. Can we bet 2 streets for value or do we check hoping to get some thinner value on the river?

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

The final entry of the value threshold series. Learn how wide you can go for value after you check back the flop and then delay C-Bet the turn.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

So now we know how to C-Bet. But we can still be put in a tricky spot by our opponent if we face a check raise. How wide should we defend? What if we think our opponent is not check raising enough bluffs? What does our 3-Bet range looks like? All of these questions and more will be answered in this video.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

In part 1 of the probing series Richard goes over dynamic turns and explains which hands to bet, which hands to check raise, and most importantly why. You’ll learn about distinguishing strong and medium strong value hands and how to play both categories. In addition, which hands make the most sense to bluff with.

ProVideo | Richard Gryko posted in : Facing IP Flop Aggression

Now that we know the objectives the IP player has when C-Betting, how do we effectively counter their strategy when we are OOP? What are our objectives and how do we achieve them? Richard introduces the concept of Forcing and Absorbing hands. Keeping these ideas in mind should prove to be extremely valuable the next time you're playing a session.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

Cory explores the implications that an overall C-Bet % has on our strategy and why it can be extremely valuable to understand C-Bet % trends. He also introduces one of our downloadables: the board frequency overviews. These downloadables in addition to the info in this video are certain to be extremely valuable in your PLO career.

Whoever told you that size matters is wrong. Small pots are just as important (if not more important!) than larger pots. They are extremely frequent and prime spots to exploit weaker players who can have overly weak ranges on the river. Do not gloss over them just because they are small! In this video the topic is all about checked down pots. Learn just how thin you can go for value when ranges are weak. You are almost definitely missing some of these valuebets in game.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

In the first part of the triple barreling section Cory discusses a variety of different runouts and how our triple barreling strategy shifts on each of them: brick runout, straight runout, top pairing runout, bottom pairing runout and the flushing runout.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

ProVideo | Richard Gryko posted in : Delay C-Betting The Turn

With our flop strategy dialed in, it's time to talk about delay C-Betting. Given that we bet a polar range on the flop we should have plenty of hands that want to put in a turn bet. Cory does a detailed analysis of several turns to find overlapping concepts.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

In the second part, the focus is on flushing turns and paired flops with a couple of different runouts. Master your double barreling with this video!

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

Now Richard takes a look at straightening turns. Learn why splitting your range can be extremely valuable on some straightening textures and understand how to perform these splits.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

ProVideo | Richard Gryko posted in : Donking the Flop

Donking: all of us think about it but very few of us do it, and even less of us do it well. Firstly, we learn when to donk. That means answering the questions of which types of boards, in which situations and finally with what type of hands. Did you know that there are some situations where the OOP player should donk as often as 60% of the time? Can you guess which situation and board combination this is?

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

Double barreling can be tricky and it’s perhaps one of the more misplayed spots by the general population. It's really easy to bet too infrequently and way too merged. Learn how to properly polarize in the first part which is all about bricks, top pair pairing, and straightening turns!

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

We all know the spot. We call a raise from the UTG player and the board comes AK9 suited. A horrible spot where it just feels like we can't win. Interestingly, would you expect that our check raise % in this spot is actually higher than it is on the same board vs the BTN? Learn how to defend yourself in the BB next time you feel like you're in a spot where your range is in big trouble.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

To finish up this module Richard compares 2 seemingly different situations and explains where there are similarities and how they differ. Learning about these differences can help us play both situations more accurately. For example, learning why a hand is a check call OOP vs the PFR, whereas it is a check raise OOP as the PFR.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

The highest frequency C-Betting boards unsurprisingly are A-high boards. But we can rarely get away with betting everything. What type of hands C-Bet and which ones do we check?

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

Looking at a paired board we find some interesting stuff happening. Some boards we never check raise, others we check raise a healthy amount. Why? What do our check raising ranges look like when we do check raise a decent amount? Chances are you're not finding enough bluffs when you have an extremely overpair heavy range.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

Cory delves deep into analyzing a dynamic flop OOP as the PFR. Given the C-Betting strategy has been discussed in previous videos he will put his full focus towards check calling, and perhaps more interestingly check raising. Some check raise bluffs can be a little surprising.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

In the previous videos we mostly talked about how we are very rarely C-Betting. In this video we take a different approach. Which hands are the higher frequency C-Bets? What components do we want to look for in our hand?

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

Richard expands on Cory's introductory video and dives deeper into the most important concepts to remember.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

Join Richard as he dives into the frequency overview for CO vs BTN. Not only does this video contain useful information about this specific spot, but you can also learn how Richard approaches using the frequency sheet to extract the most possible information.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

Cory introduces the situation of being OOP as the PFR. He compares a couple situations where this spot is most prevalent and explains how much we C-Bet on certain boards in certain situations and why.

March 21, 2021 | 5 p.m.

Cory dives deep into C-Betting ranges on a highly dynamic flop. What components do we look for when C-Betting? Why do certain hands C-Bet and others don't? All of this and more in this video.
