I am in new jersey this week for work. decided to open up a wsop.com account. was getting killed early on by raising small and trying to thin value bet.. why? because they were trapping me with sets when I have top pair or two pairs but folding pretty much everything else..
so I decided to try making pot size raises pre with value hands like big aces big pairs pairs in position and limp everything else.. wow.. I got called pre but almost the same fold equity post flop.. except when someone hit top pair.. then they went broke..
so I was thinking.. Since my image is uber tight and I feel I dont get as much value why not make much much bigger raises pre.. so if its harder for me to get more than say 1 or two streets of value maybe I can get 1 or two bigger streets instead.. so play kinda funky bet sizes..
So lets say for shits and giggles I have AQ on the button and its limped 3 ways..instead of raising my standard 4x plus ever player why not make it like 6x plus every player??? I still think I can get called by worse and sometimes better will fold and the side benefit is now I have built a much bigger pot.. So on the flop or turn I can size my bets to mess with people.. the pots bigger so I think I can have more leeway to try things that other looser players cannot
like what the guy in vegas did against me.. the bet with set on wet board then check raise turn. I think for many players in LA will have the same reaction I did with that play.. Where If I bet the flop and turn someone with say top pair might fold..
just a thought and really want to try this when I get back home.. I have to be playing deep though.. have to have enough chips to bet fold
