most EV swings were on NL50, I was getting unlucky on non-EV spots and lucky in EV ones.

but what strat do you think it's best?
I think that NL25z has only 10-20 regs who can fold in the times I play
Everyone else is a semi-fish, bad reg or whale, which are beaten by solid valuebet poker.

at the beginning of the challenge I was playing with 36 VPIP, did it for 40k hands, now I'm a TAG with 18 =(

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

btw, I mostly 4-table, so I don't think much on all spots, but I like the volume
probably after I get supernova again on this month I'll go back to 2-tabling

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

playing 4 tables is a massive mistake, trust me. quality over quantity every day, unless you're at >100z and can play a solid game 4 tabling. no reg below 100z plays a "good" game 4 tabling, otherwise they'd have moved up by now.

somewhere from 23-27 should be a good vpip.

man, every time I try to move up I get crushed, now I'm trying to make more than 1k on NL25 to move up, it's really tough to make 40 BI without volume.
specially when on NL25 I play during rush hours, in average there are 3 recs per table(fish/semi-fish/bad reg), most of those guys re-steal 20-40%, how can I have 23-27 VPIP in an environment like that?

Mostly what I'm doing is playing solid, valuebetting the hell out of those guys who never fold. I'm making bad calls though, I think I should never hero call vs from someone with a <1 AF

But I think about playing 2-tables, this thread started with me playing 2 tables(when I reached NL50 in 9 days)

BTW, how many BIs do you advice in taking shots?
I'm done with NL50, got crushed there a lot so I won't go back there, too much of an psychological barrier

Volume is NP if you're winning for >6bb's, and it's not hard to win at that 2 tabling 25z - all the regs suck and pretty much tell you their hand.

It's not hard to have a 23-27 VPIP, you may need to your on your preflop game if you're struggling to get a VPIP within that bracket. If it's 22 then so be it, no big deal, but 18 VPIP is far too tight for 6max, especially when people tick fast fold so often.

I personally like to shot around 30bi's for 4-5 bi's and then move back down if the shot doesn't go smoothly. You can do what suits you, though, but I wouldn't advise anything more shallow than 30bi's unless you are fine redepositing.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

65 - I'd size up your 3b pre, you're going to have very little fold equity with 6 hi OOP, I'd rather make the sizing more polar. I also wouldn't jam river, he has too many better hands that he calls compared to worse hands.

T6dd I think river is spew

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

56, I'd concur that you wanna size to 10-11 preflop OOP here. Remember positional advantage is reduced the lower the SPR is (basically bigger 3bs= better for you OOP to a reasonable point!)
I also think it's a definite flop check. You should cbet aggresively on boards which you retain your advantage on, but QJK isn't one of them I'd suspect, because IP has all suited straights, lots of twopairs, maybe even JJ, and tons of other pair plus draw combos which just won't fold. Also you have 6 high backdoor flushdraw, your actual hand is just very bad at this point and you are putting money in the pot against a range which isn't folding very often with 6hi, AND you block the only parts of his range which might fold! TLDR, check flop!

thanks
I thought K high boards were good to cbet because people flat a lot with PPs, which fold OTF

which hands should I bet the flop?
AK, 2-pairs, straights, sets, TT?
which hands that I'm bluffing here other than TT?

+1

Makes sense to bluff with your weakest holdings, but that flop smashes villian's range so hard. Villain has several pocket pairs in their range, but the rest of it is basically brodways and some other stronger suited hands. And looking at that guy's stats, I think you're going to have a hard time trying to get him to fold.

That second hand I'm unsure about. I feel like if we're going after anyone in this spot, it's the tight reg, but that turn doesn't seem like the greatest one to fire on. As played you've pretty much have to jam that river though.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

I really think you need to work on what hands are good to bluff and why. I really doubt your frequencies are where they should be when you have literally 0% equity 3b shoves on turns as ive seen previously.

I dont understand how you can play 18% and apparently be way overbluffing. Maybe youve just taken every bluff shove and posted it here but i feel this isnt the case. Maybe look at making some concrete ranges and trying to stick to these for a while so that you get all the basics in order before you work on hands to 3b/b/b/jam.

6Tdd for eg, you block none of his hearts, you block no value, you block a ton of straight draws he could fold otr if he doesnt fold ott. Also if he is a reg and reads 2+2 he would know to x/c all sets etc here as you tend to spazz when checked to.

Im not salty or having a dig just trying to offer up some advice whatever that is worth.

Most of the hands I post here are the ones I liked the most, there's nothing exciting about hands you gave up OTR lol.

That 6T hand was bad, I shouldn't 3-bet 6Ts specially not going nuts with a gutshot, should have check-folded the turn

But by having a tight image you should make huge bluffs on those spots more often than not, people respect a 18 VPIP guy. When I was 30/25 people never folded lol

also I'm fine if they slowplay their sets and fold their pocket pairs lol!!!

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

$1650, just a little more to NL100
is it a good idea to make a shot with 20 BI and going back if I lose 5 BI?
I don't want to try NL50 again, got destroyed there every single time
