  • He takes this line to the river with all QQ, Q8, 33, and 83xx where the xx is a SD or FD. If he has Top pair with a SD and/or FD I feel like he’d take a showdown since he can beat missed draws. So, the only bluffs he can have on the river are JT9x…
    in AA with fd Comment by High__Rolla May 29
  • I’d bet the flop here, around 100-125. That flop doesn’t figure to hit a lot of ranges very hard so you may take it down right away. If called, a lot of turn cards are good for you: aces, flush cards, and any card 6 or below. If raised, you can c…
    in AA with fd Comment by High__Rolla May 27
  • The math for a preflop Allin or flop all-in can be easily answered by assigning ranges with propokertools. For example,you need 22% equity to call- off OTF as you identified. If you give one player AAxx and another player a top 10% range without a…
  • The SB leading into this field shows a lot of strength. I would generally expect one of the field players to raise with a set (perhaps not bottom set) so I slant their range to draws. Of course this board is very draw heavy. I think you could fo…
  • To me, this is very player dependent spot. Some Villains would never overbet with an Ace here, so they would be polarized to quads or nothing. This guy sounds like he could be betting an ace and as a loose player he may have almost every ace in hi…
  • I think your line is fine here. I don't think he folds AK here and unlikely to fold AQ, club blocker or not. The fact that he tanked for 5 minutes means it was a reasonable value bet.
  • Even if we give the Villain in the CO a fairly tight range (77-TT, J9, T8, 96:ww, 87, T7:ww), we have 39% equity. So, I don't think fold can be an option here with at least that much equity and a draw to the nuts. I don't really like 3betting eith…
  • Bart;118508" said:The issue here is that you already are shut out for one side of the pot. The only merit to calling is that you are getting half of the third + 4ths player's stack if you win the high and the chance that you can pot certain turn ca…
  • I'd prefer to NOT have the Ac here, but I agree with FreeLunch that you are too short compared to the pot to considering folding. To provide some perspective on how unlikely it is that he has a 2 or TT, let's assume that he has a top 20% hand but…
  • Preflop - I agree with Terp and would just limp here. I'd need more connected queens to raise. Flop - seems fairly standard. You said he calls fast which makes me want to discount him having middle or even bottom set. It seems like he might thin…
  • Which player called your raise on the flop? The donk bettor or the caller in between?
  • If it is a late night PLO Game, then there is probably some gambling going on. Let’s trust your read and give one of your opponents AA and the other two top 20% ranges. You have 24.5% equity versus those ranges 4way. Assuming no one is foldi…
  • FreeLunch;116836" said:I used to play these spots pretty passively because there are 1 ) a lot of players in my pool that limp AA pre and 2) I have good reads on how people play - so combined I used to even check fold flops like this vs players that…
  • Preflop - In the described game with the preflop maniac and in position, I'm definitely calling with this hand. Flop - I agree with the others. You can GII here with a re-pop, so no need to get fancy. You may win a nice pot immediately or GII ahe…
  • There is basically no fold equity here versus the described V1. Someone who is opening 90% of hands is not going to miss out on playing a big pot. I think you could turn over AAJTds and he'd still call. With no fold equity, it just becomes a math…
  • You only have to be good here 100/625 = 16% of the time. His line is suspect enough that I'm looking him up at that price.
  • Does the ship reopen the betting for the original bettor on the flop? This rule varies by casino. If it does re-open the betting, I would never call this because the risk is too high it gets re-potted. If it doesn't re-open, I'm still not a big f…
  • davidbar;116606" said:At this table a 44 on k64 is the best hAnd on the flop for sure. A lot of fish and bad players I'd be careful about leading pot into a 9-way field from the worst position on the flop. They may be bad players, but can still hav…
  • First, these hands are so rare that I don't think you should spend a whole lot of time worrying about them. With a nut suit, there are only 12 combos of each out of a possible 270725 PLO hands. I'd much rather play these in a deep stacked cash gam…
  • Did he show all four cards or just AA? If latter, could've had AA5x. Regardless, I still think it is a good fold. Dry AAxx is just such a small part of a "good reg nit's" range after overlimping in position preflop and then raising the SB who lea…
  • This Nit has no bluffing range on this board after you lead into the field in a large multi way pot. So his value range is JJxx, J5xx, and maybe A5xx against which you have 1 out, 6 outs, and about a coin flip. At 1,000 deep OOP, I think this is…
  • What is your stack size? And, you don’t have to list all eight stacks but are there any short stacks? Do most people have you covered or vice versa?
  • I'm okay with the fold. Your hand is going to be tough to play OOP. If you make a flush, it may be hard to get max value OOP. Most of the straights you make will be inferior and the top side of those straights will likely contain lots of cards th…
  • CycleV;115781" said:Thanks @Terp. I wasn't sure about the value of overflushing vs giving the free card to random pairs, or possible GS draws. If we're HU this is an easy value bet, correct? And 3 way, say V1 and one of the nits, still stick a bet o…
  • You could bet small on the flop for some equity protection, but I agree with Terp that this is a good hand to check back. You obviously don't fear the flush coming and one of the straight filling cards (8) makes you a full house. And, checking may…
  • TerpHimself;115589" said:I don’t think you can check the turn and fold any non-board pairing Rivers. I think it’s a mistake for V to check his Q or J high flushes to you bc you can check back sets or Two pair and realize equity going to the river. …
  • CycleV;115562" said: River at this point I can't see raising. Unless he has exactly 85xx almost every hand we beat would fold to a river raise, no? Agree, so would you call or fold here?
  • I don't mind the check OTF for the reason you gave, but I think a cbet is more standard. As played, I think you should be leading the turn here. You can get value from lots of worse pairs, SDs, and FDs, and can protect your equity versus other han…
  • Do you have a read on the Villain's opening range from EP since he said he "was going to do that?" You should be able to assign him a range and subtract out the top part since he didn't 3bet. I don't see the need to 3bet so much here in position. …
  • @Superfly - the equity you need to call will be different in the main pot versus the side pot. You have to break it apart to calculate. See my post above.
