Comment | fish trying to improve commented on 33% CB

What about when you 3Bet from the blinds. Q high or J High boards seem the worse to CB 33% range? But still good on dry boards? A high, K high, 752r, 954r? What about QT5r? We have a GS there. How bad the board should be for us to stop Cbetting range?

Post | fish trying to improve posted in NLHE: 33% CB

Hello. I am quite new to this topic and have some questions around it.

So CBetting 33% is mostly a range CB. It's a simplification, giving up some Ev, but much easier strategy to adopt. Mostly done OTF, IP.

Are there situations to use it OOP? Maybe Co vs BU, but not so much UTG vs MP? Right?
Also in 3Bpots IP, for example BU 3Bets Co, A72r, CB 33% most of my range? What about a flop like KJ6r? It would seem to much to CBet 33% my range there, no?

I usually do it in position vs blind on boards that contain an A or K, or on some lower boards where i can barell on higher/scare cards. Is this good? Is my understanding good here? Is it good to use it in 3BP as well?

So Cb small/fold. It's really hard vs such a small raise. We need 17% EQ.
If he raises here w/ JJ-TT, AQs, and only AJdd and QJdd we have 19%.
If we give him all 2 pairs then we have 24%

I gave him this range that flats 3B: QQ-TT,ATs+,KTs+,QTs+,JTs
vs this range OTF i have 48, 83%. Does this in theory means that he has range advantage and i have to check here? Is x/shove an option here?

June 10, 2021 | 8:29 p.m.

He had a 3B of 10 overall. Type of player that would 3B bluff some hands BU vs CO

Raise bigger OTF, to .20c even. R is a call. A set is too strong here to fold.
Keep grinding it up.

June 10, 2021 | 5:45 a.m.

As played I would bet around 4-4.50$ OTR.
Probably would bet more OTF.
Personally i would 3 barell for value with this hand.

June 10, 2021 | 5:29 a.m.

I would bet more on river because there's a missed fd there and V may decide to call like 76s or some strange 55,66 that decided to 3bet pf? I don't think he folds TT or 99 vs this sizing or half pot. I think this R hits him only when he has T9s, 98s and 88. You beat pretty much everything else except AK. Maybe x/call R vs half pot and 2/3? He won't bet AK and he would probably use a smaller sizing w/ his underpairs.

Sept. 12, 2018 | 12:25 p.m.

I put CO on AA,55-44,AQs+,A5s-A2s,76spades,AQo+
SB on 55-22,AQs,A5s-A2s,76s,54s,AQo
Vs that i have only 22% . I think my outs are mostly spades, maybe sometimes a J, so let's say i have 9 outs + 1 J. 10*2=20 EQ

Bet turn. Sizing wise, just enough so you can shove river without being overbet.

June 14, 2018 | 3:10 a.m.

I would raise turn here and get it in. But this river is so bad, lol. KK ,QQ might fold to shove. AA beats you now and almost every draw.gets there. Versus 18/12 I might fold here.

June 14, 2018 | 3:05 a.m.

They might still Cbet whole range this board which is quite dry against 2 opponents

June 14, 2018 | 3:01 a.m.

Neah, just check back river. He will sometimes have some random hearts that you win against.
But my question is do we still Cbet if it is BU vs BB instead of UTG vs BB. That range advantage is not so big in this situation.

June 14, 2018 | 2:58 a.m.

I'd bet turn. On this river i would x back because on this kind of boards A high will call a lot, maybe even K high, because we either have a pair or something with no showdown value.
And i would x back on T A high and K high FDs

Is it to optimistic?

Also, when i try to post hand history and copy the hand from PT4 (there i have 3 options: copy to forum format, copy RAW hand history and copy to clipboard) it says the hand is invalid. And i tried each one of them and no one works. How ca i resolve this?

June 11, 2018 | 10:05 p.m.

If they open every suited ace, every suited broadway, every pocket pair i would 3B these hands.Vs nits I CC them as well. In position maybe it's better to call, i don't know, but in SB I think is mandatory to 3B, and if someone else CC, SQZ from BB as well.

June 11, 2018 | 1:48 p.m.

He donks 4 way and he is a nit with those stats. I think i would just calldown on non spades.

So preflop I decided to ever call vs small 3B. I would consider 4Betting as a bluff w/ AQo,AJo and KQo, not all combos (vs different opponents, different positions, sizings etc.
On the Flop I call w/ gutshot and bdfd to the nuts
On the turn I called little bit over half pot. So i had the flush outs, the straight outs and maybe sometimes my hand is good when A comes??
And on the river I decided to raise shove blocking JT and nut flush combos.
What do you think? Maybe not this type of plays at Nl5? I play Nl10 sometimes and there people are crazier, but i don't know at Nl5.

L.E And i would like to know how to post hands so they would look better, like other do post.
Sorry for my english.

June 10, 2018 | 10:20 a.m.

Is it bad if you open A3s UTG? I open any suited A utg. I guess it's on the loose side. Probably better not to if you are a begginer.

June 10, 2018 | 10:09 a.m.

Nice. Keep up the good work.

Sept. 9, 2016 | 9:45 a.m.

Ahx easiest bluff i find. And given the fact our hand is underrepped I would definately call. Ok, so he has 66,77, 89s and flushes. Does he shove all his sets and straights on this river with flush out there? Does he shove every time KQ? I don't think so.

Sept. 5, 2016 | 1:47 p.m.

If I am villian what am i thinking on the river. So i assume on the flop he has some showdown value but not good enough to cbet. So QQ, JJ, TT ,99 ,88. Then i double barell. Ok on this river he either has QQ, or pairs under so i don't need to go bigger. That's how i would think. So your hand is under valued. So i would definately call down. I don't think we need to x/shove turn. Let him bluff his stack to us :)

Honestly, i can't think of a hand he has that's not JTs, maybe AQ, but that beats you as well. And he can have AK as well :). But you block those so I see JTs. And he is not the 30/24 guy who you would expect to bluff shove some percent of the time vs check.

Sept. 3, 2016 | 3:45 p.m.

65 ,76, 87, 98 of diamonds clear calls on turn. A6, A8, A3 of diamonds clear calls. I can say Qx, Jx of diamond if he floats this. Also QJd, QTd, JTd A2s ,A3s. I don't think he folds AJ and definately he doesn't AQ. So there are hands we get value from in my opinion.

Sept. 3, 2016 | 1:27 p.m.

I would bet turn and shove river on that card, obvs.
