Re: HU Blind Play From the Small Blind

Toss,

Stop trying to play like me in the 2+2 SH games. /images/graemlins/smile.gif I would complete against someone I knew very well, but would raise or fold otherwise. I guess I might...

Re: Theory: Approach to Very Short Stack Play

It is pretty easy to run the numbers for these spots. They will be a bit ambitious due to the fact that SNGPT doesn't account for overcallers, but here is what I'm getting on the button.

Re: Hand from a 6-max table -- handreading.

Well there are 6 combos of KK and just 1 KQ /images/graemlins/club.gif, so it is 6:1 against him having KQ /images/graemlins/club.gif. In reality he could have various different underpairs...

Re: Against a thinking TAG.....

I have thought about this for literally 30 minutes and I haven't come up with a good reason for him not to play Ax slow. The only problem comes in when it gets to the 3rd level or somewhere far...

This is backwards. You should calldown when you would have folded to a 3-bet. It isn't a...

Nah. It could be KQ /images/graemlins/club.gif, but the sheer lack of combinations makes it less likely. I don't think it is getting 3-bet on the flop though so it...

Re: Curtains Hand #2

People who claim that they don't understand the math and fold in this spot are FOS. You can't just shove a lot more as your position improves or as your get shorter because the calling ranges go up...

Re: Has he got quads?

Best play (not in terms of EV)

C/C > cr/f > b/f > b/3 >> cr/c > b/c

In terms of EV it is C/C >> b/f > cr/f > b/c > cr/c >> b/3

Re: K/9o in CO, dead SB steal?

I wish posters here would be more consistent with their slowplaying advice, though. Why doesn't it matter in this case? Are there clear-cut guidelines as to when I should wait or not?

Re: K/9o in CO, dead SB steal?

How can you stop n go? You are in position here.

Yeah as shant said sometimes pop the flop and sometimes raise the turn. It really doesn't matter much.

Re: 87s

You are getting 14:1 to call the last 2 bets. With a 17.4% chance of making a flush, you only need to be drawing live about 38% of the time to call here. I would call.

What is MP1's range here? I'm guessing AA/99/55/AQ+ so I'd calldown.

Re: $55: 88 utg w/ the chip lead

Pushing is +EV (reference is folding) but that doesn't mean it is the best play. Since I'm a push/fold player, I would push. Folding is dead wrong in this spot.

Re: PP $22 - First hand ITM. Call the push with 22?

It is super close dude. He should be pushing roughly the top 30%, and 22 is almost a toss-up against that range (slightly wrong). IMO you still have enough chips to fold here and pick a better spot....

Re: The Nuts... now what?

His play is fine until the river. The check/raise-call sucks in that spot. Betting is certainly called for the way the hand was played out, and calling a raise looks to be a smart move as well. Don't...

Re: Do you push this ($22)

I would fold, but it is pretty close. Suited kings really aren't that good in this spot, so I would push anything better then K7s. I would rather have something like 98s, but K3s is still close...

Re: Chopping if you are the best player?

Yeah it is a good chop for you, but a bad one for him. With a 2:1 chip lead and big blind to stack ratios, it would be very tough for him to be even money. Unless he literally folded every hand, he...

Re: Junk in BB flops trips, played weak/strong/perfect?

Put more bets in on the turn. Hands like AT /images/graemlins/diamond.gif are going to go crazy on the flop as they figure to have 15 outs. You are also getting an overlay from a 3rd player who could...

Re: Heckled after KTs hits hard

Too much hand not to raise preflop here. The flop 3-bet is meh and is close either way. You will be doing a lot of 3-betting here, so mixing in a big draw might help you in the long run. It might...

Re: Slow playing strong TPTK on flop

The big key to this hand is that the pot is small. As the pot gets bigger, you have to fire raises in on earlier streets. So if the pot were 5 ways for 3 SB to the flop and got HU by the turn (i.e....

Re: Pocket Aces and a beginner

And if he has a weak hand, you're still probably better knocking him out on the turn or forcing him to make a big, bad call. And if he has (or turns) a strong hand, the turn card may come bad and...

Re: Pocket Aces and a beginner

When we raise the turn, the pot will be about 30 SB if you assume that the manaic calls and the CO folds. If getting that AK to fold nets us 7% more equity, then the raise buys us 30*.07 = 2.1 SB of...
