they call tons of raises with no regard to position just like donkeys, the key is where donkeys check fold flop when they miss the tags try to outplay you every hand, push u off whatever it is u have with no regard to the board or how you have been playing, they dont seem to have any understanding of when or why they are 3 betting, they will reraise you and when u repop it they are almost always going all in with whatever it is they have(it was j5o as i was winding down my session 15 minutes ago for example), they try to make far too many plays, and when u call their bluff they just blindly keep pushing their bluff/crap hand. they play terrible post flop after callign a raise, pretty much when they have better than a high they are check raising the flop 100% of the time and if u call check fold turn. 10% of the time they actually have a hand and might check raise the turn again. if they call ur flop bet and u check behind on turn they pot it into you with virtually anything ALL the time, if they have middle pair u check behind on turn with top two for example, board pairs giving you a boat, they pot it into you u go all in they are calling here very often as they think they are pros and u are obviously bluffing because they dont get outplayed. i could go on but i think u get the point.

btw if any of you start playing nl 400 at party, add crillo555 to your buddylist, that guy is an atm machine




Does their tendancy to check-fold the turn if you call the check-raise lead you to play back light or do you still need a reasonable hand to take then on in a bloated pot?

Hello YoungHov,

Thanks for giving this answers, they are very interesting.

I've read your pov about SCs and find it very correct.

So, at button and CO do you think SC's are worth a call without limpers? (If not how many limpers do you prefer?) What about Unsuited Connectors, SC 1-gappers and low AXs?

Playing 8-tables I guess your reads should be very bad. How can you still beat the game?

thanks,

dardo




with no limpers im usually either going to raise or fold scs, tho if the blinds are very bad players ill tend to limp them

low axs is a raise/fold

unsuited connectors is a raise/fold

sc 1 gappers is a raise/fold/call if blinds are terrible players

reads arent bad, i mean they arent perfect but they are usually pretty good

how much do you rely on PAHUD
what does your setup look like and
can you comfortably play 4 tables without PT/PAHUD support?




i definitly use it, it helps the most when u have no deads on someone so at least u have a general idea of their style

setup is the basic default pahud setup, nothing is modified

did it when i first started poker, but havent tried recently

I'm interested too about your ideas about play on the BTN/CO with/without limpers.
Also what's goot to complete in the SB with 1/2limpers?




my sb range is a little bit wider than my button range, so i dont limp too much, i still have some standards

younghov - how do you defend your blinds? What do you call with OOP to button raises? How often do you repop, with what, and against who? Do you ever repop loosely?

How do you handle people who are repopping your preflop raises 2/3 to 1/2 of the time? (This question is assuming your not in the blinds)...




i dont defend my blinds much, if im going to play a hand out of a blind v a raise im usually 3 betting. no reason to defend your blinds with crap because your oop.

fwiw i fold to a steal 88% from sb, and 84% from bb
v lags i either 4 bet or check raise a lot of flops if im oop, float them if im in position
