Re: A hand that was probably misplayed

I don't MIND the 3 bet on the flop, but... Ugh... CO coldcalling for 3 bets on the flop is a dead give away that he is on a heart draw or a straight draw, perhaps a slowplayed JJ or 99. Either way...

This has troubled me...

4/8 live

Raised UTG from a player who has been playing loose, but I have not noticed anything strange from his preflop raises. Player UTG+2 has been at the table for 30 mins maybe and has gone...

Re: check/fold river with midpair, small pot

Is betting this turn a mistake because we pay the same price to c/c the river and giving a free card doesn't really hurt us? ie the only card that really screws us up is possibly an A?

edit: Is JT...

Re: .25-.50 6max - fold river?

I hate the flop call. I either fold or raise. A raise saves you half a bet if you are detemined to showdown (unless you get 3 bet or donked into on the turn in which case I am folding the turn UI)...

Re: I don\'t know what to do...

I call pf and the action changes on the flop.

We check the flop UTG1 bets and SB c/r. We are faced with 2 cold getting 4.5:1 to call. We have 3 clean out to the T and a club T gives us flush...

Re: 99 BB raise or call preflop?

I don't play this high, but I like a 3 bet to make it 2 cold to our limpers because I would really like them both to fold, but I also like limping and play it for set value or a favourable board.

Re: 88 vs 2 limpers 3 calls

I doubt I fold the flop for one bet. Matter of fact I think raising is slightly better as we can get hands like K9-J, A9, AT to fold when they would be close to correct to call our raise if they had...

Re: 99 awkward river

Bet. If you were ahead on turn, the only thing you are losing to is KQ and AQ. Is this bad logic?

FWIW next time river a 7.

The first example was not great. The second is better.

Re: blind defense with 33

I don't care now if villian 'knows' I have any hand. I want to win the pot now rather than face a tough decision on the end.

There are not too many river cards that I am going to be happy about...

Re: blind defense with 33

I think we need to bet this turn don't we?

I think villian will check behind the turn for a free card too often. Problem is I hate getting raised as much as I hate giving the free card. The only...

Re: Inducing bluffs

Here is an example from last nights session.

Had I bet the river, he would have folded. I felt safe that he didn't have a Q or would have been checkraised on the turn or the flop.

Re: KK runs into an A (shorthanded)

If they call with any part of the board it's an easy bet. The only thing you may have to worry about is that Ace may have 2 paird someone (is anyone really calling a naked ace to the river?) I think...

Re: Microscopic sample size STAT checkup plz

Nina, do you steal with those (Q5 and K2) because it's cheaper than stealing on the btn?

Re: Inducing bluffs

But my point here is that, in this example, you win exactly 0 more bets by betting the turn because villian folds. My aggression is SO high on the turn and river (2.47/2.41) and it got me to...

How big a part does it play in your games, and how much do you think it contributes to your winrate?

Re: QQ troubles vs a tilter and a LAG

Yes, but as played, I 3 bang it.

I prefer leading but I don't think it gives us any better advantage except that perhaps the CO stacks off and gets the btn out of the hand.

Re: K6s river problems

If villian never folds an A or a better K then I agree betting the river is not an option.

And I need to remove 99 from my original reply.

Re: Bottom 2 pair

You say that the worst you have seen him pump with with a draw is TP. The flush draw got there. Jh8h got there if he would pump the FD and the oesd. He could already have the QJ straight and if he...

I usually empty my stack about the same number of bets.

Re: K6s river problems

I like b/f. Villian will call with all pp 88-QQ as well you may be able to get her to fold a better K or even an A if she put you on a flush draw. If she was a really poor player, she could have 9x...

I would treat this hand as a HU battle vs the btn. I am taking this hand to showdown. You said that you think the btn can handread. What does he take you to have? Does he think he can get you to...
