I hate to lose a pot and almost always end up overbluffing the river.
I try my best to check and give up more but i can't help myself...
My most used river bet sizing is 75% and usually i have around 40% bluffs when i use this sizing. To become balanced without adjusting my bluff/value ratio all i need to do is start betting 2x pot instead, right?
Would you recommend this simple adjustment or should i take the (for me)difficult path and bluff less and use "normal" sizings?

I open the SB and C-bet 1/3 and then we get this tricky turn. My hand is too weak to check-call and if i bet i might get raised or called by a gutshot that bluffs the river when i check. So i decided to check(raise) 3.5x
What is your play?
Pio does alot of mixing between checkraise/bet small and call a raise or even 3 bet with this hand.

Button is aggro and coldcaller is the biggest whale i've ever seen. Normally i would shove here but i wanted to keep hijack in the pot as he literally is the biggest whale i've ever seen.
But still, is shoving the best play here to deny equity and pick up the variance free chips? And obviously if i flat i wont always get full value from buttons value range.
If i shove and they both fold i win 1300BB/100 and i really dont know if its possible to get a higher winrate here by calling?

I open JJ 2.2x UTG and nitty villain 3b to 6bb effective stacks are 40bb
I think his range is is AK,QQ+ and maybe some AQo/AJo but it could very well be KK+ aswell
Obviously i have the raw equity to call but should i? Is 98s or A5s a better call?
EDIT: Is it possible to solve these spots in PIO or any other program?

I flopped 2 pair and cbet flop and turn. On the river i have a pot size bet left.
I have 55% equity vs his range (109 combos) but vs the hands I THINK he is going to call me with (68 combos) i only have 38% equity.
I guess the GTO play is to shove so that i can bluff more?
But what is the most +EV play here as if i bet and get called im gonna lose most of the time?

So this hand happened on a final table me being 2nd in chips VS the chipleader.
I defend 89o vs btn ->flop 7s 4d Ts i call half pot ->turn Jd he bets 70% i have 31bb and the pot is now 17bb. A shove would give him 34% to call.
Do we shove to protect from draws because its a final table big stack vs big stack?
Also, would it be a ICM punt to shove turn with something like 56?

Yep i agree with the value of keeping a healthy stack. But if i have a bigstack is it really worth it to open semi loose "just because i can call the shortstack and get the bounty"
I mean if you open 72o utg with 4bb stacks behind you obviously have a +EV call but the open must be -EV in first place

For example im in MP with 97s in a bounty builder with 12bb stacks behind. I would not have the odds to call their shove if i didnt open but if i open i get the odds but its really close. Is it better to fold in these spots?
Obviously if i open its +ev to call a shove but i wonder if its -EV to price myself in

We are in the BB with A4dd and unknown nit open 2.2x UTG with pfr 0/24 utg and 2/23 mp. There are antes and we need 18% equity to call which we obviously have. But we are so often dominated...do we still call? IF YES -> do we also call with 20bb stack?

It was the start of my session and i had already registered 2 MTT's and somehow opened ICMIZER instead of Pokertracker.
I immediately realized my mistake and closed it within seconds. I didn't get a warning message or anything but im scared something is going to happen.
What is pokerstars policy on this?

Hi, great video! How do you get pokertracker to show RFI with different stacksizes?

HAND NUMBER ONE
Reg opens UTG 9handed and we flat AQ on btn. Flop=A67r we call 1/3 pot, TURN=2, he bets half pot and we call. River= J he bets half pot and i raise 3.5x to fold out AK. AQ is the weakest hand i have OTR other than KQs floats sometimes. Is this bluff "gto"?
HAND NUMBER TWO
Reg opens UTG we defend A2hh in BB FLOP=AQT with a diamond flushdraw. We call the cbet. TURN= 8 we call again (should probably fold?)
RIVER= K that completes the flush and we lead for half pot. What should i be bluffing with here? Would you recommend overbluffing as an exploit? Also what should UTG call the river with?
I guess i should buy a solver...

I need some advice how to play hands like this
We open AdJh and LP calls flop-> QhTh5d do we start barreling or check call? What if we have AhJd?
We 3b KhKd in sb and flop is 6h2hQd we cbet and turn is 5h do we check-call or bet? sizings?

I'm using ICMIZER but for large mtts it seems like you cant calculate bubble spots(?)
So how can i study push/fold ranges on bubble?
Also, If the buy in is 80$ and starting stack 3000 and mincash 160$ is the mincash worth 6000 chips?
April 6, 2018 | 1:18 p.m.
Ok for example BB109 you get a 25$ starting bounty 100/25=4 5000 starting stack divided by 4= 1250 so one bounty is worth 1250 chips?
Lets say villain has 1250 chips at blind level 15/30 (42bb) he raises all-in. Do we call with any 2 in the bb? If Not, why?
April 3, 2018 | 4:53 a.m.
For example deep in a turbo you have A5s UTG as the chipleader and most of the stacks behind you are 5-10bb deep.
Is it better to fold this hand because its very likely that we have to call a ~8bb shove?
Obviously it depends on how often we expect to get the steal through etc etc but in general what is the play here?
