  • Aesah said I would probably just flat call and open jam any safe turn I agreed with you, then did a bunch of PPT and disagreed w/ you, then did a medium amount more and agreed w/ you again when I realized this would go MW to the turn a lot and w…
  • What is your plan to exploit people raising to see where they're at, with this hand, in this situation, w/ an SPR of 17.36? Seems like a pretty specific question to me... Anyway, I've read the book and found it not at all useful. If you want to r…
  • NicholasK said lol, great job editing to take my advice out of context. I think it's important to know the other tendencies you might see when you spot an "information bet" Just like I'll know anyone on this site is more likely to bet/fold the rive…
  • NicholasK said recommend reading Hellmuth's book "Play Poker Like The Pro's" lol thanks, good advice after that ill check out harrington on HE
  • Aesah - What is your plan to exploit people raising to see where they're at, with this hand, in this situation, w/ an SPR of 17.36? We don't just auto-profit from our opponents doing things that are generally mistakes unless we have a plan to expl…
  • Well, I guess this thread is now just about my preflop raise w/ KTo from the SB. I have a couple of questions for those who think it is so terrible: -Would you limp this hand if the action were the same and the SB was $0? -If you looked at this han…
  • I want the SPR medium here so it will look like I am committing when I am b/f'ing and won't have people raising worse TP to "see where they're at". Anyway, if I were looking for LLSNL-type advice I would post there. No to dismiss the responses, I a…
  • Aesah - Thanks for your response. Re the PLO hand, do prefer l/c or r/f pre? Against this villain I'm not getting action on a c/r from bare AQxx, but might from KKxx or AAxx. This villain is the type that will be b/f a lot when he bets less than pot…
  • PokerIsFrustrating said Why are you raising to $15 from the sb in hand 2 with that many limps. Everyone will call It's a value bet, same reason Bart raised A224ss in the O8 hand: Hand Equity Wins Ties KxTy 24.49% 140,730 13,861 22-TT, 5x4x-QxJ…
  • Lol, as you were describing the river situation in the Faraz hand I immediately thought of this old gem: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/19/high-stakes-pl-nl/jmans-river-c-r-hand-week-300-600nl-659/ I thought 9k into 16k was a little large; ~5.5…
  • Can't have a 'where does money come from?' thread w/o linking to Shania: http://archives2.twoplustwo.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=533592&page=&view=&sb=5&o=&fpart=all&vc=1
  • shmed said I'm not sure I'm convinced that we have a profitable value bet or bluff catching range. I looked at your list more carefully, why have you excluded so many AsXs and KsXs from your range? It looks like you are saying the only suited sp…
  • IME players fitting this description are more likely to bluff in bloated pots than small ones since they see how much money there is and hate how there's no other way they can win any of it once they whiff.
  • shmed said Russian dictator, I don't think you understood my post so I'll restate it more concisely. Against most opponents this is an easy bet / snap fold on the river. But, he goes to pains describe this person as super aggro and spewy (e.g. c…
  • River is an easy b/f, but over this many limpers you should be raising this preflop. Most hands people want to play for 1BB they do not want to play for 9BB, and with your large raise you can afford to c-bet veeeery exploitatively based on flop text…
  • If you're going to be donking (esp on flops like this) it should be a lot bigger. If you bet 100 and get one caller the pot OTT is 325 and you have 375 back. At that point you can confidently lead 200, have odds to call it off against a shove, and …
  • TDF said Read "Thinking, Fast and Slow" by Daniel Kahneman during your break from poker. This. Also, I've heard good things about 'The Power of Habit'.
  • A 2/5(15) game is basically the same as a 7/15, except the minimum BI will be either 200 or 300, or 13.3-20 BB. The players at theses tables will make no effort to adjust to your near-GTO shortstacking (though GTO is probably on the loose side giv…
  • shmed said I think all you have is a bluff catcher. The only flush you beat is 3s2s, you lose to the rest. This really seems like a read-based decision -- I would normally be snap folding this on the river. The nut flush is one of the hands th…
  • CatharinaNilsson said Stalin, I always seem to get different equity calcs from you. I have As3s,As2s,Ks3s,Ks2s,As9c,As9d,As9h,As8c,As8d,As8h,As4c,As4d,As4h as the villains range and get 33.33%. Why? Lol, because I forgot to exclude As8s. Genera…
  • ricks5550 said As UTG I could only raise to $7 and that is not going to deter anyone from playing their hand. Where are you playing that you can straddle the button for 3bb but an UTG open in a 3bb straddled pot is only 3.5bb? Also, if this is …
  • If villain is even close to as described (ie raising ats broadways preflop and any pair+fd otf and betting or raising w/ weaker flushes earlier in the hand) I think you can find a call: board: 4s9s8c5sQd Hand 7s6s 61.54% As9,As8,As4,As2s-As3s, …
  • This is a pretty standard raise preflop. Your hand has a very smooth equity distribution across flops, but since we are going to be playing from OOP it'll be hard to get more than one bet in per street, so our target SPR is under 9. From acombofos…
  • Thehammah said Its been so hard getting any value at all I am a bit leary of betting too big only to see a player with a J to fold assuming I had an over pair.. That means you need to be double barreling more
  • Thehammah said I get AK and actually flop and ace for a change... If you find yourself thinking this just stop playing. How could this be productive? The way you lop off your c-game is by quitting when you notice indicators that you're playing i…
  • Seems like a pretty trivial fold... board: QsTs5s AcQc 16.00% QQ+,TT,55,QT,Tx5x,AsKx,AQ,AsJx,AsTx,KsQx,QxJs,*s*s 84.00% 100:347 -> need >22% equity
  • If you're going to play this pre I would squeeze for full-pot. This hand plays a lot better HU than multiway when pots get large (you don't need to worry as much about your straight-draws being dominated and those bdfds add a surprising amount of e…
  • Fold pre, check behind flop, as played fold. Big cards are way more valuable at these stakes and stack depths.
  • 'Why didn't you start overbetting flops and/or turns when you were developing the SPR/REM framework for PNLHEv1?' 'How do you begin constructing your preflop ranges based on relative positions, stack sizes, etc., when you first sit at a table and a…
  • Bart- What is the largest sizing you would have considered b/f'ing (assuming this was a b/f)? Also, did you consider raising small OTT?
