  • oh and as played, i think bet-folding the turn is best against most live players. which hands with the Kc or Qc does he have that raise the flop? AK he will probably 3-bet pre a lot, AQ doesnt raise the flop that often (in my player pool). and sets,…
  • i like preflop open and flop c-bet. i don't think we can call the raise - what range do you put villain on? he has 4 straight combos (53s), 6 sets (22 and 44), 3 combos A4s, 2 combos A2s, maybe 42s. If he raises flush draws almost all of them are bi…
  • I prefer 3-betting pre (unless you have a read he only opens JJ+ and AK, some live-players limp a lot but have a super strong open-raising range), but a call is fine too. Flop i would lead for 2/3 pot. Since you have the range advantage you shoul…

  • Here is an example range for SB including all flushes, sets and aces up and a couple of semi-bluffs with one club. I dont think that he checks all those value hands twice, but even against this range i have 39% (and i need about 34%). http://p…
  • i think river check/call is best as it leaves his bluffs in his range (some combo-draws like 87 and 97 of spades or A6 of spades). in my experience people who semibluff the turn might bluff the river again, but wouldnt raise a bet, even if it looks …
  • I think a check is best on the turn. You're not getting value from worse and you're not getting better to fold imo. On the flop i prefer a call. You have position and you have presumably a recreational player that you like to keep in the pot. He…
  • Another idea: If you are up early in the session quit, so that you have a sure win, might give back some confidence.

  • Two years ago i had a similar downswing. I also play part time and i love playing, back then it stopped being fun for me and i also didnt play my best game. I took off a couple of weeks and came back really fresh and eager to win (i also did some st…

  • QJ is still a bluff catcher imo and it makes his straight-combos more likely. result: i snap-folded. After the hand some other guy commented that he thinks it was a bad fold (without knowing my hand). Villain told me without me asking him that …
  • What hands is villain betting for value in this spot? AK (i think he would usually 3bet pre, if he didnt he could play it like that) K9 I dont think he gets to the river like that. 98 double-gutter, he probably only has the suited combos and mayb…

  • If villain were bluffing he would probably just bet out on the river himself instead of checking and risking a showdown (a showdown is the most likely outcome, since hero never took any aggression action). I dont think an average 1/2 player would f…
  • I ended up betting 200 for value, got called by the nut-straight (6-3). I thought such a small bet would get a bluff-catching call from stuff like Ax. He did take some time calling, so maybe a bigger bet (especially overbet) would have worked as …
  • JKH wrote: » I think he has a straight the most, aces up clubs that got counterfeited sometimes and a club draw, so I like the line of betting him off the straight so bet 1k. So u do not have to chop the pot. If he or anyone ever finds out you do …
  • quincyjack wrote: » Bet fold flop bigger -- 25$.......≥..,. I cbet bigger by default, but i feel in this case the calling ranges are very inelastic. Any ace will call any sizing and random crap hands like J9o, K7s, etc will fold to any sizi…
  • If you take all edges, including the small ones, your winrate will be the highest. If you pass up the small edges you accept a smaller winrate. The probability that you will lose over any given sample will be bigger than if you take every edge yo…
  • The flush is pretty unlikely for him, especially because the ace is on the board and he is solid and opened in early position. Its also unlikely for hero to have a hand that can call the rainbow flop and is a flush. What other hands would he valu…
  • DavidChan wrote: Fold or 3bet preflop. Not only are you OOP postflop, you are likely to have the worst "relative position" postflop if the limper overcalls the preflop raise. Just as importantly, you don't really have a SC because 43dd can only fl…
  • I believe the last hand is a 17 card wrap, not 13 like you say. For future videos i think it would be great to do some analysis in something like pro poker tools. I also think it would be nice to do a single show with preflop concepts and in all …
  • Wackabrew said styx said He called with 52s for an OESD He called a SB 3-bettor (even on the button), with 52s? You need to be mixing it up with him a LOT. I was a bit surprised too, but then i realized that he was gunning for that old guy.…
  • TDF said You're not really deep in this hand. Deepness postflop relates to SPR not stack to BB ratio. I thought about that too. But there is the fact that it's a 3bet pot. Do you think the following two situations are equal and would you stack o…
  • In my player pool all the players who would bet/3bet a combo draw are also aggressive pre-flop and wouldn't limp, especially in early position. Also they would 3b bigger, since a semi-bluff needs fold equity. Some (often older) players limp AK and …
  • As a side note: I never really used SPR a lot, except for sizing my bets so i can get it in on the river or something like that. I think in deeper games i will use it more to evaluate how deep the pot is. For instance this hand is 400bb deep, but du…
  • To the people who say bet/fold turn and expect check/check river: do you c/f or c/c the river? To the people who say b/f turn and ship river: isn't that a bit thin for 400bb? He would have to call all three streets with a bluff catcher basically (i…
  • also you can download the videos on your computer, add them to itunes and synchronize it to the iphone - pretty straight forward.
  • i'd like some PLO content (if Bart thinks he is good enough to teach it, i have no idea). i do think the content should be primary NLHE, maybe a short bonus-podcast once per month or a single hand now and then. i would also love to have a PLO epis…
