Is slotboom raising PFR and then capping every street?

To make that strategy work you need to have maniac sitting right next to you. If there are only passive players just forget about it. It's no use peddling aces if you aren't able to get almost all-in preflop.

There's a 5/10 local live game that is perfect for 'peddling' aces, and I'll buy in for the min and this strategy has not worked out well for me.

All-in for 2.8k PF with AAJTds vs KJ35 unsuited, lost when he turns trip threes.

All-in with KKJTds for $1800, my friend who I have staked had AA75us and was all-in for $800. The other guy had K266ss, and won when he flopped quads.

Particularly, the guy who flopped quads never folds preflop. If you 3/4-bet him, he'll say "I know what you got, them aces." And call any amount of his stack away just to crack them.

Had several -5k nights 'Slotbooming'.

God, I run bad at live Omaha.

It's probably the juiciest Omaha game imaginable. Usual 70% VPIP and everyone is an aggrotard.

A) Flop Set
B) Don't get sucked out on.
C) ?????
D) Profit.

Myself and another 2+2 poster have done a long analysis of the Slotboom shortstacking strategy and we have found that it is so good that it both underused and should be expanded.

The other poster did most of the work so I feel a little uncomfortable posting the results, but I will summarize the main findings:

Because the people at these levels are so bad you make money by playing about 40% of all hands and raising in the last 3 positions.

And when people are a little passive and you can only get 25-40% of your stack in preflop, then make sure that you don't get bluffed out.
