In the course he states that the player with the K needs to call 50% of the time to avoid being expoitable. He arrives at the 50% because at this frequency the bluff with the Q is 0 EV.

But isn't there something missing? The range of they polarized guy can't be neglected, for example if it consists of 4 Aces and 1 Q.
Than the player with the K should always fold to a push even though calling 50% would give the bluff 0 EV.

Hi guys,

I have now one month access to the RIO Essential videos. I finished "from the ground up" some months ago + a few videos from the learning path. Back then I moved up to NL16 Zoom.

Now I have to time to watch one video per day for one month. How do I create a good schedule within this limits?

Thanks :)

Post | weltcheftrainer posted in Courses Forum: Question to "4-Betting Polar"

My question is about the "4-Betting Polar" video. At 9:31 Peter gives a range we should defend in UTG vs BU.
Peter says we should only fold 35% there. I don't get why. Villain is more raising 3x and we are out of position.
Peter says it is a small 3bet, I always thought that the size of the raise is measured in relative terms (in comparison to our open) than in absolute terms (Big Blinds.)

Pokersnowie would rather defend 35% of hands in UTG vs a Button 3bet.

### Nov. 2, 2019 | 12:17 p.m.

This is ugly but I think the problem here is that you are too passive. This is a good flop for you. I would c-bet large here.

The problem with your line is that you let him realize all his equity and on top let him decide how big the pot is going to be.

Against "villain very LAG 32/24/11 58 wwsf." this is a very very easy call for me.
His turn check makes a straight very unlikely. I think he will overbluff here a lot, especially given his 58wwsf.

### Dec. 20, 2018 | 7:59 p.m.

I think it is fine. AQ won't fold but underpairs (A5s, 66-99) might.

Doingg some handreading this do look like Ax in spades. I would heavily discount flopped straights and sets regarding flop action alone.On the River he could do it with the lone Ace of spades . Against passive or nit I fold, otherwise call.

### Dec. 11, 2018 | 4:37 a.m.

Your thought process has at least two errors:

1. If you defend by calling he can still win the hand. This was already pointed out.
2. The BigBlind is in a way helping you to prevent SB from making autoprofit.

I would defend any suited Ace and pockets down to 55 and more suited connectors like T9s, 98s, 87s, 76s

### Dec. 10, 2018 | 3:36 a.m.

Shovimg ist +EV but the real question is wheter calling ist even more profitable. Unfortunately I don't know.

### Dec. 7, 2018 | 2:24 a.m.

Comment | weltcheftrainer commented on AQ vs 3bet OOP

I think this is a good situation for a 4bet. Given you have AQ, UTG should have around 11% QQ+ and AK and BU should have QQ+ AK around 31%.

By 4 betting you put a lot of pressure on the other guys. Imagine being UTG sitting there with AKo and getting this cold 4bet back. It's not a fun spot for him. Also your AQs is well protected by the stronger hands in your range.

### Dec. 6, 2018 | 3:41 a.m.

I think we ca do some combo counting on the flop to get an idea:

value:

3times 33
6-9times KJ
2times K2s

monsterdraws: 2-4
OESD: 15
flushdraw: around 20

So if he is an aggressive guy he can and will semibluff a lot. If you fold AA what hands do you call with on this river, which is one of the better rivers?

### Dec. 6, 2018 | 3:14 a.m.

There are no worse Ax.

### Nov. 27, 2018 | 8:04 p.m.

I don't get it. In a vacuum you can raise any hand but you can't always raise. So you should pick the best hands to do it with. With TT you can simply call here given the good price.

Okay, his play does look like some AQ, or JJ, but he can also be tricky. Wanting to go for the checkraise on the turn with a flushdraw and now trying to induce a raise.

### Nov. 27, 2018 | 12:37 a.m.

Against these obvious two donks I would simply shove the turn.

### Nov. 23, 2018 | 4:59 a.m.

I think you shouldn't look at this specific hand but rather design a flop c/r range. I honestly don't know what a good ratio of made hands and draws looks like but your overall range determines wheter you should continue to barrel with this hand.

### Nov. 23, 2018 | 4:56 a.m.

Play Zoom, table selecting takes away so much focus. Even in microstakes tables are constantly breaking up so you always have to search the lobby for new ones.

### Nov. 21, 2018 | 2:37 p.m.

Isn't this a situation where you can calculate a defensive strategy? He bets around 1.5 times the pot (75 into 50), so his bluffs are break even if you bluffcatch 40% of the time.

Maybe you should watch a live play of a good player but without sound and press pause before every decision. Then you will maybe spot a pattern where you play different. Maybe you do something serious wrong without noticing. This way you may spot it.

Most hands posted here are bigger pots but maybe your leak is not picking up uncontestet pots or folding way too much vs 3bets, or calling small pockets oop vs big 3bets etc.

### Nov. 17, 2018 | 3 p.m.

Flop was 4 way. Barreling a lot AK AQ here is not something I expect here and I think It would be really bad.

I like jam, you block AQ and JJ. Also AA and AQ make perfect sense for you to have. So his straight or 44 isn't happy.
