ah okay that makes sense thanks :) Yeah one of the examples Pete used was AKx. Cheers :)

Thankyou for the detailed response, really appreciate it :)

Just to clarify,
With the the dry Axx boards etc., I would be range betting both button and UTG, but for a bigger sizing UTG due to not having such a wide range (more of the range is happy to play a big pot)?

With the wet boards, we're rarely nutted UTG, so we bet smaller for protection (e.g. with JJ, 99) or check more often (e.g. AA) as we don't want to run into the nuts that the BB can have that we don't? However we can get away with this as button because we still have nutted hands due to wider ranges, so bet polarized? Would that technically still make us more merged UTG, just not at a high frequency?

Specifically I was looking at button vs. BB compared to UTG vs. BB. I'm a little confused about why these strategies change the way they do depending on the different ranges.

My understanding so far (please correct me if wrong) is that:

On a dry board like A22, K27 etc. we want to be betting very often both as button and UTG because we have range advantage. As button we bet smaller because while we have nut advantage, it's less pronounced given ranges are so wide. As UTG we can choose a bigger sizing because nut advantage is more pronounced given our range is so much more condensed.

What I'm confused about is on a wet board e.g. 567 twotone. I've heard that as button we are betting polarized, choosing a bigger sizing to get value, protection, fold equity etc. from our nutted hands and high equity bluffs. In Pete Clarke's video UTG vs. BB he goes over the same spot as UTG in pio, and it's mixing between a bigger and smaller sizing. He recommends just simplifying and using the smaller bet as both our range advantage and nut advantage is reduced, thus we have to bet infrequently and with a smaller sizing. Both explanations make a lot of sense to me, but I'm confused as to why these strategies differ in these positions. Would our range advantage and nut advantage not be quite similar both UTG and button given that the board is so equalising? Why are we betting a bigger size when polarizing on the button, and a smaller size UTG?

Yeah that's a fair point. In that sense, do you think it's better check raising smaller and still potting river, just not for stacks? or check raise same size and just bet something like half pot river?

Aug. 30, 2020 | 3:17 p.m.

Fair point, Thankyou :)

That's a good point and definitely makes things easier, thanks :)

Just as an aside, without FD blockers, what are we doing when the flush completes the river? say the river is the Ah, are we just sigh check folding?

Aug. 23, 2020 | 4:12 a.m.

oh yep of course, makes sense. Thanks :)

Aug. 21, 2020 | 6:57 a.m.

So you think either raise bigger or just play turn as a call with no FD blockers?

Aug. 21, 2020 | 6:45 a.m.

Yeah I definitely see the merit in that too. I decided on a raise here given was so active and had cbet 100% at this point, even on really wet boards

Aug. 21, 2020 | 6:43 a.m.

Yeah that's a good point, something like $3?

Post | wdres123 posted in Courses Forum: Range betting IP vs. OOP

So in the selective vs. unselective c-bet episode, Pete uses the example of BTN vs. BB in which were obviously IP. Obviously using a selective strategy we can continue being selective OOP, how would that change for range betting? Would we still range bet a board like K72r OOP? Would there just be more boards we decide to be selective on?

Fair point. Appreciate the analysis

Aug. 17, 2020 | 11:22 a.m.

Fair point, there's not a lot of value hands he can have here

Aug. 17, 2020 | 10:31 a.m.

29% isn't trivial though. Do you think a 10nl reg is taking this line as a bluff often enough to meet RE?

Awesome thanks man :) A lot of the mental game stuff looks really good I'll for sure check it out

That course does look really good I'm strongly considering it. I've heard reviews saying that it would be beneficial to do solver work alongside it to expand on what's covered. Do you think this is the case or would you say you'd still get a lot out of it without that?
