  • Check raising flop to about $145 seems like the best line. After playing the flop as a check-call, seems like we would just check-call the whole way down. I think I would reluctantly fold river in your spot. He almost certainly thinks you are unlik…
  • Seems like 30 is a typical open size for this game? Since there are so many cold-callers, you should 3b! larger--something like 200-250. The best response to the opponent's flop bet follows from your decision to check this hand for, "pot control."…
  • Jax1234;120818" said:Any merit to checking back on the flop?... Yes. This doesn't seem like a hand to include in our betting range otf. In general when we have opened from LP we should cbet with a fairly polarized range (if we bet too many of our m…
  • I assumed some ranges for SB FRI, BB 3b!, and a calling range for the SB of BB's 3b!. PokerCruncher has BB at 51.2% range advantage, and 51.1% ran as "deal-to-flop" equity. Thoughts on these ranges?
  • Superfly;120724" said:...My initial impression is that your proposed 3B range looks pretty wide. Don’t we want to 3bet with a tighter range than SBs opening range? If SB opens with loose HJ or tight CO range, wouldn’t we want to 3B with something …
  • PokerShaman;120721" said:...One thing to consider...the small blind opener is going to be out of position for the rest of the hand, they are incentivized to open with a tighter range than a late-position opener... According to Ki in the Fast Track s…
  • I like your line through the turn. Betting the turn also seems reasonable. Garland;15134" said: I bet $35 to get called thin or to induce, If you made a play that was intending to induce a bluff, and then you get raised by a player who is capable of…
  • I would 3b! preflop at a high frequency like 80%+ given the open came from CO and both the btn and SB flatted. You have linear flop equity distribution so your equity is better narrowing the field, and there is dead money from players with condensed…
  • 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…
