Re: As pairs go it\'s not much - J3s

You said that button likes to raise flops, so what was your plan if he raised this flop? C/c turn and fold river without a straight or J?

Re: a line i like.......

Bob,

I actually take this line a fair amount, against such an opponent. And I adopt the same reasoning that you have expressed. But frankly, I do fear that it might be a leak.

It all comes down to this: if Villain folds so much that you can profitably ignore the gap principle, then Villain is not a good player in this situation. We call them "good players"...

Re: I Know 2+2 Wants To Kill Me For This......

I don't fold, and probably cap more than call.

UTG could be raising with huge range of hands, notwithstanding those numbers. And CO could easily be 3-betting with a middle pair. My numbers aren't...

To put it differently, you believe it's possible to win at Party 3/6 specifically, without ANY information on players (aside from perhaps the most basic stats with a HUD - i.e., VP$P, pfr and...

Do you think it's possible for a decent (but not great)5/10 player to win at Party 3/6, paying virtually no attention? In other words, could that player win while ONLY looking at the table when his...

Re: 3-bet J10s against good player?

Well, I'm thinking of an opponent who does not blindly go to sd no matter what, and is willing to back off occasionally.

Does that change things for you?

3-bet J10s against good player?

Part of my recent quest to determine how wide I should make my range of 3-betting hands preflop.

A pretty good player - perhaps slightly more aggressive than the average TAG, but solid postflop -...

c/c or bet/fold with A when board is double paired?

Villain's stats are 42/6/.88 over about 70 hands.

4-handed. I raise from co with A7o. Button calls. Blinds fold.

Flop: KK6. I bet, villain calls.
Turn: 6. I bet, villain calls.
River: 8....

Re: Pretty common turn spot that I hate

Bryce,

I'm confused when you say they are separate events.

Are you really saying that the same player who will check behind with a pair, is also likely to raise the river with the same holding?...

Re: Pretty common turn spot that I hate

I agree with you about how people behave with all those suits on the board. But doesn't that make it even more likely that we could induce a non-flush to bet the river, if we check?

Re: Pretty common turn spot that I hate

Considering villain raised pf, it's hard to see that he's going to have a 2 or 4 of diamonds in his hand. Possibly, he raised from MP with 55 or 77 (and one of them was a diamond). Seem more...
