  • Since you're OOP you need to 3b! larger to something like 60-75, You have a strong and narrow range, and this flop greatly favors your range, so you should probably cbet your entire range at 100% frequency for a roughly 0.33PSB. Half pot is too lar…
  • When you're faced with the jam, it's worth considering that, "...bluff 3 bets are so rare". But you have to consider how that applies to this particular situation. Garlard's post covers what else you should be thinking about. Having an open-limping…
  • Hand 2: I would fold pre. A :h: Q :d: 9 :d: 8 :h: seems OK to limp, but your hand seems a little too weak, even with a guy on tilt already limped in. AdQd6h7h is low in both "nuttiness" and flopability. It has 1/6 combo that can make broadway, and 1…
  • Thanks for the responses everyone! So with BTN straddle on, at my ~60BB stack depth, from the SB should I just open-raise every hand I'm playing and not limp? And open something like top 10% of hands? Terp, it seem like you're saying the limp-rerai…
  • Thanks for the response Terp! And thanks for the battle plan content; it's very helpful!
  • TLDR: Wynn for 1/3, anywhere for 2/5 JamesSuh made the key point: there really isn't one or two rooms that are significantly better than the others. Good and not-so-good games can be found everywhere during the series. The particular room you go to…
  • This preflop config is ripe for UTG to have a decent amount of 4b! "bluffs" in theory (but in practice, as you know, most people don't 4b! as a bluff). So folding KK doesn't seem like a good idea. Also, in theory, there shouldn't be a cold-call rang…
  • While it's true that you will typically arrive at the flop with a lower SPR, it's also true that the pot size will be larger in terms of absolute $, and most live players often think in terms of absolute $, so you can get people to make folding erro…
  • Was V first limper or over-limper? As long as V was not the first limper then I would probably x-r flop, around $115. In this spot, just because V technically overbet, that doesnt mean that (in practice) he actually has the narrow, strong, and po…
  • Raising the flop seems best. In my experience, BB donk range in spots like this is a lot FD and some AX; it's very rare for it to be 2p+. V is repping a strong range by leading into the PFR in a multiway pot on a flop that connects well with the PFR…
  • ethanrox, when making decisions at the table (against most opponents) we ought to consider how we are going to play our entire range in a given situation, not just how to play our particular holding in any given instance. "Can you do this analysis o…
  • Preflop: Flatting is plus EV, but 3b! at a frequency of 50-100% might be max EV. Seems like straightforward calls on flop and turn vs a "laggy euro". River is probably too thin to go for value. Your hand looks a lot like AX, and there are basicall…
  • I reccomend creating a warm-up routine for your sessions. Check out "Peak Poker Performance" coauthor Jonathan Little (2016) for great advice on how to do this. P.s. On my commute to the casino lately I've been listening to (and playing along with)…
  • Maphacks brought up very important point that cold-calling a 3b! is very rarely going to be the best play. IMO it's definitely not a good idea in this spot. With the description of V2 as "unknown", I imagine in this spot I would 4b! to $80 planning …
  • Making exploits based on false assumptions can lead to huge mistakes. You can minimize the risk of making these sorts of mistakes by attempting to approximate an equilibrium strategy against an unknown opponent. In an article by Andrew Brokos (link…
  • If it's more than about 3 limpers I'm just limping along. If it's two limpers, I like to raise, but I'm making it more than $12. You should add the money from the limpers to whatever your normal open-raise size would be, and you might go a little …
  • StreetFighter;118268" said:What would be the best way to play this if V1 just calls and the turn is 6 :c:? Betting turn, probably $30. Your comments about the flop are interesting. Checking flop seems to have a lot of merit. It will get checked t…
  • UTG (V1 $412) opens to 12. 3 people call V2 ($200) calls from HJ, CO folds, i call($745) on button with A♦ 7♦ Blinds fold This part is not clear. There is no standard format, just try keeping things as concise and clear as possible. Assume your read…
  • Hand 1: On the flop I think a $50 bet is significantly higher EV than a smaller sized bet. I wouldn't expect there to be much difference in his calling range facing a $30 bet vs $50 in this spot. As played I would call turn and fold river. Hand 2: …
  • Welcome to the forums! Preflop: $25 seems like the best size here. Flop: ...I also think I should be checking a decent amount on these boards... In theory, the greater the range advantage and nut advantage we have on the flop, the higher the frequ…
  • Preflop: According to Ki's chart, this spot is a call (V is raising over a limper so V's range is more like an MP open range than a CO open range). Flop: According to PokerCruncher, If V has MP open range and H has BBvsMP flatting range from Ki's c…
  • The larger the 3b!, the worse price we are getting to call, so we defend tighter as the 3b! gets larger. For example, if I open a pot to 20 and my opponent 3b! to 40, im probably not folding anything. There are many factors to consider, and some goo…
  • CraftBeerWizard;117975" said: ....What I am finding is that my 30% PSB is getting c/r and raised A LOT. It seems like the smaller bet on the flop compared to PF makes laggy players at this casino think I have air. So far I've elected to up my cbet…
  • You should be cbetting 0.7-0.85PSB in situations like this. Your range is much stronger than V, you have range advantage on this board, and the board is drawy so even strong hands are vulnerable to being outdrawn. Given this particular V and the SPR…
  • Taking MDF into account for a second, V is making a raise and getting laid 120-110 immediate odds on his raise, so H has to defend with at least about 55% of range against this c/r to make sure H cannot be exploited by over-folding. QdJd would defin…
  • @0back2 , @PotLuckNeeded , Why is this a snap call? It seems like we don't beat any hands that the V is repping. Do you think he is overplaying something? Also, the V seems unlikely to be bluffing otr because of perceived range. He knows I have all…
  • Preflop: I'm 3b! JJ here at 100% frequency (unless there is someone very special in the blinds). Were you planning to stack off facing a 4b! from this guy? I like your 3b! size given the effective stacks (as long as you are 3b! to $40 with you…
  • Thanks for these great responses! Im wodering if there is merit to firing river considering the V range might be wider than it would be against a $175 turn bet because V thought the bet was 135? My thinking in the moment was that if I bet 175 then…
  • The 99 hand. Seems like this guy could be monkey betting with many hands on the river with that sizing (possibly KQs, KTs, QJs, JTs, QQ, TT, or AXs). Also seems like their are not many combos V is taking this line with and then calling a river raise…
  • maphacks said:...And by the way very few bluffs! Very interesting point! Mason00 said: In a 3 way pot, wouldn't you usually raise two pair or a set on the turn? This point deserves more attention. I'm very curious about people's opinions. With th…
