  • I definitely feel like it's a call in theory. Do you ever consider an exploitative fold in this spot?
  • kaboojie;15532" said: Same Bet Sizing On The Turn As On The Flop - This is usually indicative a weaker tp or underpair type hand. Sometimes it can be an overpair on a wet board, but it usually means the player is not too confident with his hand and …
  • Steveo76;122174" said: As a side note, in the lower stakes, these river overbets nearly always turn out to be for value. Do you find this at your stakes? I play $1/3 and noticed something similar a couple years ago. The percentage of players in my p…
  • How often do players in this game 3!? There are a number of recreational players that I would fold JJ to for anything more than a 2.5x 3! because their 3! range is so tight.
  • Agree with the preflop advice. Bart’s cbet bluffing matrix (CLP pod #319) is a must listen as well. Another point is to always think about why you are betting. Can you get called by worse? Can you get better to fold? These are not the only reasons t…
  • @Superfly Hero might be good, but will V call with these hands? And if you know that V is bluffing too much, then you gain more by allowing him to bluff.
  • @Superfly are you really considering folding this preflop? Stacks are 60x the raise size, and this is EXACTLY the type of hand that can win a big pot from tight EP ranges.
  • I think the river shove is way too optimistic. What are you getting called by that you beat? 3 combos of AJs and 1-2 combos of QJs?
  • V2's line of X/C, X/C, lead into two players who have each led a round of betting (even if $20 on the turn is incredibly weak) makes me think that V2 thinks he has the best hand and doesn't want to risk getting checked through. I also don't know tha…
  • The first thing I'm looking at is table dynamic. If there is someone who is really squeeze happy in late position or the blinds, them I'm just going to let it go. I don't mind the really loose pre-flop action, as long as people aren't going to call …
  • It's all very Villain dependent, but in general when I see someone 3! then lead the flop for a sizable amount, I don't think I have a lot of fold equity. That said, you're basically flipping against AA, KK, AQ, and bigger flush draws, and only 70/30…
  • ^^ 3rded. The good ole sigh-shove is one of the tells I have found to be most reliable at 1/2 and 1/3.
  • I love the thread idea. My hand-reading and courage to find hero calls have increased dramatically since becoming a CLP sub earlier this year. 1/3 $300 cap. UTG+1 limps, I overlimp in MP2 with A :c: 8 :c:, HJ calls, BTN calls, SB folds, BB checks …
  • I suspect the jump in talent is much more noticeable when it's the biggest game around. I can't imagine there's a huge difference from 3/5 300 to 5/5 500 cap anyway, but especially not if there are bigger games in the room/nearby. Also keep in mind …
  • ATs is an open according to Ki's preflop charts, so I think that's fine as long as you aren't going to go broke if you pair your ace. I would call the $15 and see a flop. I don't like playing out of position, but I think folding for a min-raise is…
  • I would bump it up more pre. I would probably start at $20 and add $4 for every limper. I'm not sure I like the X/R on the flop, what's your line of thinking there?
  • I like it. I'm convinced that OOP the better option is the click-back. Getting max value on future streets is too iffy, and I really like the idea of exploiting with future bluffs if V folds to a small click-back. As played, I called. Turn ($97 he…
  • Arenzano;119997" said:Obviously suits matter, so you would take your 16 combos AK AQ and develop some categories of which combos want to continue and how. Yes, this is what I'm trying to get at with this thread. It looks like @Fuzzypup likes check …
  • I agree with CycleV, but there is one caveat. The 9 combos vs. 6 combos assumes that he ALWAYS plays AA, KK, and AK in this manner. As a simple example, if preflop he always 3! AA and KK, but only 3! AKs (and to this sizing), now the combos are weig…
  • @CycleV I'm with you on exploitative play, but I like the idea of having most decisions made ahead of time that I can adjust based on the dynamics I'm seeing at the table.
  • This hand is 1/3, which is most often the only NLHE game in the room. As far as suits, I’m more interested in the broader picture. So what if we group the various combos as such: Category 1 - BDFD with an unsuited hand Category 2- BDFD with a sui…
  • I'm surprised to hear you both say click it back. My thinking was that a Q is unlikely, but it could be any pair raising "for protection" thinking I had AK (which I had in mind when I c-bet 1/3 pot). I also figured that 2-pair hands are unlikely giv…
  • When you say ultimate last position the following hand, I assume that just refers to preflop, and play resumes normally on the flop? I also assume that like most straddles, action starts directly to the left of the straddle. The biggest thing I wou…
  • deadinaditch;119876" said: As played, I think you need to call. V's line looks fishy. By checking back the turn you basically announced that you do not have an Ace opening the door for a steal. You did bet the flop so it's not entirely out of the r…
  • The virtual min-click on the flop, turn follow-up of effectively the same size, and 30-second tank on the river would probably get a call from me in game. There aren’t many logical bluffs, but what value hand would need that long to decide what to …
  • I don’t thInk this is a bluff often enough to warrant a call. Pretty much the only way that happens is if V can read your hand fairly accurately, recognizes that a hand like 99 or TT has no showdown value, and be capable of bluffing 80+ BB. The chan…
  • Something I get reminded of from time to time is that just because someone makes maniacal plays when they are short, doesn't necessarily mean they are still making a maniacal play with a normal stack. Obviously this is villain dependent, and I'm n…
  • X/F was the conclusion that I had reached after the fact and with the analysis provided by Fuzzypup I’m convinced that’s the play. Best case scenario I get called the 50% I’m ahead and raised the 50% I’m behind so AT BEST it’s neutral EV. If he ever…
  • ds2uared;15058" said: I'm not great in these multiway spots where I want to bombs away to protect my equity. But I feel like any amount I bet will only leave me with enough that I'll have to call every scare card that comes on the river. I spent …
