Usually this has to be taken into consideration but for boring reasons I'm 99% sure he wasn't BSing. At any rate if it was TT it's a terrible b/f, folks don't do this against someone competently aggro.

Re: ***HU SNG REGS THREAD***

I've been treading water, you'll be fine. Hate those c-15k spikes in equity, I've also had one since Monday (and back up and back down again). As I think I mentioned I'll be gone half of August so even if I get out to a nice lead you'll have plenty of time to grind out a victory. I hope it happens as long as I'm hitting my profit goals too

Re: ***HU SNG REGS THREAD***

I played this guy on FTP, (won't say his nickname, don't want to slow his action etc..)



most of it is from $33 HUsngs.

The guy limps every buttons whatever the blinds are and almost always bets half pot when betting, he calls a lot on the flop, likes to play turns and rivers.
He really owned me post flop, putting me in tough turn/river spots.

I guess his style requires very good hand reading skills, but what surprises me is that I've never seen a very good HUsng player play like that.
So what do you HUsng pros have to say about his style ? (I sweated him afterwards and he plays the same vs. every opponent), what are the pros and cons of it?

Re: ***HU SNG REGS THREAD***

^^^
you should really be raising in position... so i think it would be tough for this guy to win against someone who raises a lot of their buttons, because then he'll be stuck playing bigger pots out of position and he's giving you free flops when he's on the button... so he must make up for this by great post-flop play.

Re: ***HU SNG REGS THREAD***

its annoying when opponents limp every hand because then i have to see flops with 27 and 74 when i would just fold those preflop so those limping clowns waste my time...the worst is when they limp preflop and check everything other than top pair down...takes so long..

I posted this guys graph the other day, he is pretty good at reading people and I wouldn't play him again

(M M**oc right?)

What really surprised me was how bad he was in terms of handling his poker online, I saw him single tabling the $33 full ring SnGs, checked on him every 30 mins because I was interested to see if he was still doing this, and he was!

I mean no good SnG grinder single tables the FR sngs, but he was. I was so astounded! Very bizzare..

I would just not sit him, he is good... If u do sit him, raise your button 3x (EVERY BUTTON and change to 2x when blinds increase/stack sizes change) vs these type of villains, c-bet alot, and keep your c-bet size constant. I would also just play tight OOP...

it sounds like you have good reasons to think he had TT, but if you hadn't said anything about 99%, i would be shocked if he really had TT. and if there was some way to prove it(and you could afford it), i would bet a lot of money at 99 to 1 that he had some other hand.

Yeah that's him.

And that's basically how I played (and how I play), in the end I took weird lines to try to confuse him and that what seems to work best.

My real question is, how can he be such a big winner with that style ?
I mean always betting half pot is a leak right ?

Re: ***HU SNG REGS THREAD***

There's a reg that has sat me like 5 times (probably the most I've ever played 1 player at the $23's) Has 11%ROI over 4k games or something. Min raises 100% of buttons and c-bets half pot 100% of the time. It's pretty easy after you adjust, I know I won the last 4, not sure about 1st game. I'm the same way with the "wtf?, how can they be such big winners with a strat like that?"

They keep the pots small and take down a lot of pots uncontested.

The rest of the playerbase is more concerned about staying balanced and "unreadable" and watch too much livb
