Re: Pre-flop exploitive play question

Here's my thinking: 23% is either folding too much or folding too little. (I have no idea what the acutal number is, it depends on postflop play and other stuff)

If he's folding too much, you...

Re: $11 NLTRN: Top pair gets all-in on the turn

I think getting all in on the flop is ok. There are plenty of draws and weaker 9's you beat and not a lot of hands that beat you (overpairs tend to raise pf, 93,83 tend to fold). I mean if he is...

Re: Play a hand with me (NLTRN)

Thanks for posting the hands Dromar. Kudos to the unknown villian - he played very well.

The one thing that surprised me was how well leading OOP worked out for him (see hands 7,27,29). I don't...

Re: NLTRN - $20 reg - Preflop decision (sorry)

The fact that he's a nit at the early blind levels means NOTHING once the blinds hit 25-50. I think there's plenty of people who play tight at the early levels but push all sorts of crap once the...

Re: bluffbot

Yeah, it didn't do well v half pot every street in pos.

It made weird blocking bets a lot too (like $4 into 24 on the river), which is kind of interesting. I wonder if there is any way that is...

Re: $33NLTRN 2nd pair vs aggro

Yeah, you're not giving yourself a lot of room too maneuver raising 4x here against an aggro player.

I wouldn't mind getting it in with this flop against this guy, but you really put yourself in...

Re: Play a hand with me (NLTRN)

Yuck - villian seems to be picking his spots pretty well.

I don't know if you kept a record, but if you did, post villians cards when this is done. I'm curious if we are getting pwned or if...

Re: raising limpers vs 3betting

This is a *great* theory question. Cross post to theory forum pls with 100% raiser vs 100% limper example.

Re: $55 NLTRN: facing fairly big c/r shove on the flop

I say QJ+ and J8, which is a blocker for QT.

Might be a little too tight though, I dunno.

Re: Play a hand with me (NLTRN)

In practice, I agree with Chiry - I bascially never call raises from the BB once we get < 15BB. I always either push or fold.

My logic is that since you are at a disadvantage postflop, you...

Re: $10nltrn thoughts on every street please!

I think the range is reasonable. You all are ignoring the fact that this is a min 3 bet preflop from a passive villian. IMO those are usually pretty strong.

Preflop is the least interesting...

Re: What is villain telling me he has? [NTRL]

My guess in order of likelihood is: six > small pair > nine > a random ace/overs > big pair > air. I call here for sure.

As for 3betting, my standard is 3x, but I think you need to adjust it to...

I'm sure I could dig up plenty of hh's where i get 4bet or 5bet and villain is just over-playing top pair or some garbage draw. It's just such a standard play at this buyin level.

Range: mostly pairs, some flush draws, and occasional random bluffs
Call: yes

The thing you are really scared of is bigger flush draws and given your read (passive postflop, whiny) that seems...

Re: Play a hand with me (NLTRN)

Raise to 80 - I think he's gonna fold a lot.

1) He's limped twice before and we've let him live both times so he has no reason to suspect we're raising light.

2) He's been raising a fair...

It is possible for a player sitting out to beat someone who is actually playing and knows what they are doing.

Although it is incredibly unlikely, it still scares me.
