Re: Cracking the mid-stakes poker ceiling (2017 Cash/MTT Grind)

H1 is just a call down spot imo, I donít like turn raise. Might jam some rivers vs real stations but generally you are going to valuecut yourself here at 16z so call down is fine.

H2 is fine, I mean itís pretty obv he has overpairs with that flop size, but should be flipping in equity vs those so Iíd gamble too

H3 he definitely has most 4x (that calls pre) in his range by the river especially with a guy left to act behind and generally cus of in position. You should be careful about making these assumptions on villains game. As played river depends on villains stats and we should try to exploit them, obv passive fish wonít bluff (and can x back even Kx) so betting is best, against aggro fish I prefer 1/3 ish to induce or just bluffcatch by xcíing.

H4 facing these sizings is a bit weird with 2pr, but I still think on this dry of a board people wonít have many equity bluffs, and unless itís a whale the population at 16z doesnít triple like this with pure air. He is obv repping thin, but they usually have it so yeah.

Re: Cracking the mid-stakes poker ceiling (2017 Cash/MTT Grind)

panda - h3 I'm surprised that you think a CO flatting range v a UTG open has that many 4x, I really only thought 44/54s/43s was reasonable. I get what you mean that by T/R villain has all possible 4x in his range, x'ing turn is probably best but can I really be folding to b/b on t/r if I check? Villain almost definitely checks back QQ/JJ/Tx/Kx on river so we lose lots of value against a big part of his perceived range.

Volume is stupid low rn, exam revision is taking up my time, not leaving a lot for poker study/play - only played 16z today and played some 10nl hu on Sunday. On a couple of good notes, month is back even, week is profitable and I've arranged some work experience at a hedge fund in the summer

This week:


No really interesting hands to report, will play some more on the weekend when I'm back from visiting some uni mates in Surrey, gf is away too so I'm not planning on much but work & poker <3

I might've misunderstood what you first said about the hand, but I meant to say that the 4x he has in his range (agreed that it shouldn't be many, but you never know with the fishy guys) probably all flat flop+turn imo, so just wanted to point out that I think it's still very much in his range despite not raising flop/turn since you said the following

Re: Cracking the mid-stakes poker ceiling (2017 Cash/MTT Grind)

Panda - ohhh yeah igy, makes sense too that he wouldn't necessarily raise 4x too, mb

Short update, volume has been very low all month (15k hands approx.) due to revision and it'll have to stay low until early June (when exams end, f*** u engineering) but wanted to post a couple of hands. Had a stupid session yday, won >3BI from people completely punting w/ a few interesting hands too.

Hand 1: Some history w/ villain, pretty passive, playing 22/18
3b pf is loose but barrelling otf w/ almost always 50%+ eq. is correct, thoughts on xb turn to realise equity? By barrelling we can rep A5/56/AA/AK pretty hard and some KQ but pretty much no other value, whereas xb turn and b river can rep KK/AA/AK/QQ/JJ/TT/Kx/A4 as well as all the bluffs we can have.

    Hand 2: Villain playing 70% f3b, sb range will be more passive too so std squeeze spot. Not sure about my line here - xb/b/b better? Tb?
