  • Also - just to clarify - Villain is *not* the straddler, correct? Is Villain EP player who called the straddle? I'm with @kaboojie on this. Can't fold against a preflop caller. Sure, 87 gets there, but IMHO, it's way more likely that EP calls the p…
  • Steveo76;122581" said:Is he terrible enough to call a $12 UTG raise with 8 7o in the SB? Yes he is. Poker is alive and well in Southern California on the weekends. I think I did the worst thing which was to call. My rationale at the time was that …
  • The 7x open is not uncommon here in L.A. at the 2/3 level, especially on weekends. Standard raise would typically be 5-7x. As played, I think the flop bet is a little large. You might say that you are charging the draws to continue, but the draws t…
  • Thanks @Piggy. The thought actually crossed my mind, but I think in these low stakes games, we need to be careful about giving our opponents too much credit. Many of these guys who buy in for table minimum don't understand a whole lot other than wha…
  • Steveo76;121703" said:I am folding this garbage pre-flop, but as played, I like a c/r to about £150 setting up for a shove on a clean turn card. Agree with the preflop fold, but are you getting called when you make that huge check raise? In 1/3, I…
  • So what would you do playing 1/2 with bottom set on this kind of run out? I think there is a lot of AQ here. Betting has been weak, so it would be tough to put you on a set. I'd be calling. If he has AA, QQ, 99 or 77, so be it.
  • @Jonesey - I feel your pain. One of the big mistakes I make is assuming that these low stakes opponents are thinking at our level. To say that "My hand looks like AQ to the villian" assumes that they are aware of what that looks like. Despite all th…
  • Mid year check in. How am I doing against my goals? (1) Re-commit myself to the forums and post one hand a week (will read others). - Well. I read every week and post every now and then. At least I'm not ignoring the forums. Reality is I just a…
  • Jonesey;120259" said:When the math/pot odds say call but your read/intuition says fold .... Believe me - I get it... And sorry - my combo work is a bit off - 3 combos of KK and 3 combos JJ beat us. 18 hands we're ahead, 6 hands we're behind.
  • Hand 1: Are you calling preflop to try to set mine? If so, listen to Bart's 15/25/35 podcasts. You're not quite deep enough to set mine. As played, preflop pot is $44 (less drop). Flop pot is now $88 ($44 pre, $22 bet and a call). On the turn, I wo…
  • Would Villian play AA this way? Do you have a feel for how wide he 3 bets in position? If he is typical and only 3 bets QQ+, AK preflop, there are 6 combos of AA and 12 combos of AK that we're ahead of. There are 2 combos of KK 2 combos of JJ that…
  • Try not to be results oriented. If he shoved the turn are you really going to fold for $68 more?
  • nlhood1;15144" said: I feel like spots similar to these give me issues on the river when we brick out especially when the river is an A or an overcard Which is why I don't play these type of hands (marignal Broadway suited gappers) out of position …
  • Thanks all. I jammed river. Villain goes in the tank for a long time - 2 to 3 minutes. Eventually he calls with AhTh. It was one of those "oh shit" moments when I bet the turn and got smooth called.
  • Hmm. It's tough to make hero folds at these stakes. What does he have here that beats us? I'm thinking of a flop range raising range something like: AJ, KJ, QJ, JT, J9, J8, 76, 54. If he's a typical 1/3 player, he probably flats sets, but we can …
  • Thanks all. My thought was that the min 3 bet was TT-QQ, AK, AQ maybe KQs. He continues on a flop that shouldn't hit my range very hard. Checking the turn when the flush come in means either he has something with showdown value, or he has a diamond …
  • jojacks;119643" said:What is Villain's player profile? Obviously you haven't seen him play, but age, gender, ethnicity, and demeanor can all be useful in evaluating situations when we don't have much hand history to go off of. Young Asian waiting …
  • ds2uared;119642" said:3bets are rare to open up a table when they are rec. players. I like a passive line here, too. Call, check-call, check-call is good on this runout. I think I can sometimes find a fold on the river. The diamond will slow dow…
  • Garland;119624" said:Small point that doesn’t really impact my analysis too much: do you have the J :s:? I did not. I'm not a real fan of checking for pot control in a cash game. If I'm going to get called by a draw, it will be on the turn, not th…
  • Tell us a little more about the Villain. Would he raise QQ+ to only $10 preflop? Would he also raise 88 or 33 to $10 preflop? What about a hand like T9s? AJ? What in his range is he continuing with in this fashion?
  • Why not fold pre (honestly interested in your reasoning)?
  • PokerShaman;118306" said:If UTG has a short stack, then the effective stack is their stack size, not yours. Yes. I'm aware. In this case, UTG was the short stack and ended up folding. BB and I had equivalent stacks (about 100BBs).
  • Thanks all. I did make the call and was shown 77 for flopped middle set. In 1/3, 2/3 the $100 bet is a *large* bet and since most of the player pool has no idea pot size, I would have folded. At 2/5, I wasn't really sure.
  • Thanks all. In retrospect I think I made two mistakes in this hand: Flop: I think I should be betting a lot here. Big little little is a good texture to c-bet and should hit my range. If played back at, I can evaluate the turn. River: I agree wit…
  • LessIsMore;117910" said:[quote="GlennJones;117907"][quote="LessIsMore;117900"] The “not sure what kind of player we have here” comment was directed towards villain. I was not insulting your intelligence. Lol Not taken that way at all! I had brain …
  • Ugh. I find that most 1/3 players are not capable of CR turn without nutted hands. You say he's a tournament player. Would he do this small turn CR to "see where I am"? Without any history, I probably fold. I just don't see players where I play ta…
  • LessIsMore;117900" said:Not sure what kind of player we have here, but let’s assume that an 8, spade, or 9 pulls you ahead. So, 14 outs (approx 28% equity give or take a bit). Oh - yeah. I want to correct my earlier post and remove my comment about…
  • CycleV;117905" said:I'm still blown away by a room that needs props for 1/2. I play in one that does. The worst part is the props buy in for table minimum and then basically only play top 5% hands.
  • I agree with @potluckneeded here. This guy is a prop, so we can remove a lot from his preflop range. He won't show up here with J3 or J4 ever. He's not the preflop raiser - he calls the preflop raise - so I think we can remove overpairs, and maybe e…
  • Hmm. $100 is a big bet for a recreational player to be making in this spot. The other problem with a lot of recs (especially if older) is that they don't 3 bet AK/AQ as much because they're playing make a hand poker. Is this player capable of bluffi…
