  • I guess the basic logic is as follows: Matt has about half draws half very strong value. On the river when he misses, bluffing all in pot size about 50% of the time is reasonable as it makes your good but non-nut hands (the majority of your turn cal…
  • I agree it forces the fold from a good player (and I agree Matt is playing on a high level) with a combo draw. I appreciate the response, but that does not answer the question about about why calling is more profitable. It ultimately comes down to a…
  • I would like some clarification on why people (including Bart his discussion) think that jamming the turn in the QQ v 77 hand is possibly not correct even using Matt's correct stack of 3.8K behind. The best possible combo draw is 4c5c with almost 30…
  • I have enjoyed reading the input, thanks to everyone who weighed in on this. I was doubtful that J9/J8 offsuit was in his early position limping range, and even more skeptical that he would raise these on the river. I am sure he limps QJ but I don't…
  • Correction: of course there is only one J:s: either I had J:c:
  • Against a station, bet the flop then check, check-fold with no improvements. You punish a station when you make a strong hand, and reward them when you barrel off. You don't try for balance.
  • I like your sizing in position. I do not expect to see 89 as on a wet board, even with a re-draw, why not get it in on the turn? To get there, he needs spades with a flopped pair or a flopped gutter. Since J:s: is not in his hand, that leaves 10 x, …
  • Has he shown any aggression at all post-flop beyond maybe leading with a top pair hand? If not I am mucking this with a clear conscience. If you have any evidence that he has raised top pair good kicker or less, or raised with a draw, call. Since …
  • I agree with kaboojie, turn jam or check-fold, and I prefer the latter. You say V is decent reg. His range for 3-bet, call 4-bet, call flop includes a lot of pocket pairs, and maybe some direct suited connectors. A lot of these hands now are a mini…
  • Be careful with this one. You can vary, but do it according to the specific line up and game conditions with specific reasons. I am one of the best players in my player pool, and exploiting bet-sizing tells is a big part of my game. Open sizing is …
  • Larger sizing pre it is then. I have all the over-pairs in my range on a fairly dry board, so I thought the flop was ok for my entire range. On the river I bet $85, and V called. I showed and he showed Q :d: J :d: before mucking. I was surprised h…
  • I vote 3 bet also, daddyslap suggested sizing to 105 looks good to me. I am very interested in the general situation of 3 betting from blinds and going heads up to the flop OOP. I think the main reason many players do not 3 bet AK or AQ here is the …
  • V1 was MP1, it was heads up to the flop as V2 folded pre. I mentioned V2 because part of my preflop thinking is he wants to see a flop for not too much on the button, I was fairly confident he would fold to the chosen sizing. When I checked the tur…
  • Concerning fozbo comment: If it is $15 into a 21 bb game which is 2-5 or higher, of course I stand corrected. As I saw no units posted other than bbs, I assumed it was 15bb. If indeed it is a $15 bet into a 21bb=$105 pot, you cannot fold, and I pre…
  • Hand 1. Fold pre. The first problem with the call is that depending on which seats took which actions, there are 2 to 4 players who can still 4-bet, including the initial opener who must have been in early to mid position. The second problem with t…
