First hh review: genty $11

Okay, here we go, first hh review. Some interesting spots came up where I think there was a defenitly a better way to play the hand(s). 107 hands was more than I remembered though haha

Obviously a "std" raise though just pointing out that I'm still planning on doing something about betsizing in the future and minraising vs raising 3bb's will defenitly come up there as well. Just pointing out for now that at 10/20 level I prefer 3bb's as well, just because there's still a lot of room (read: more room than at 15/30 level) to manoeuvre postflop when pot is 6bb's with 72bb's behind.

Great, you limped! I think it's a good idea to limp early on. Mainly because it's good/cheap info you get about villain what he does in general vs limps, something which you can (and should) use later on when stacks get shallower and/or blinds go up. I also think T8o is a good hand to do it with, mainly looking for weakest part of medium strength hands to limp, 96s, K2o, stuff like that. Either hands which can still flop toppair/middle pair or some sort of draw or can be checked down and still be the best hand (K-high or Q-high usually) on some boards.

Ok, so you limped and he raised to 3bb's, what do we do here? I think calling preflop isn't the best way to play here, I think it's important you fold here for future purposes. Let's just start with pointing out that vs a really aggro opponent limp/calling here can defenitly be a good play (someone who 3bets a ton and raises most limps) because we have a semi-decent hand which can still flop something decent + we have position. However, in this spot, we have absolutely no idea what type of opponent we're dealing with here. Given the fact that he folded two previous hands, I don't think he's the type of guy to "bully" and start raising almost any two cards here tbh; this could be the case, some opponents just look at the limp and see "oh, he's weak, let's raise him off his hand!" but when he folded first two hands (one on the button) I think that you're looking at a more tightish range.

Another thing why I wouldn't call preflop is for the fact I want to test and limp some more hands in before blinds go up and see what he does. Let's just say you fold here, you limp again in 8 hands, will he blindly raise again because we folded here or not? If yes, you can safely fold again (only invested t10 again) and use this to limp/shove a ton of hands in later stages of the game. If he checks, you can easily limp a bunch of (even) trashy hands till blinds get really high. Vs people who are passive vs limps you can probably limp/fold as low as 7bb's shallow imo, though you have to know that they let you do this and for that, it's important to notice this early on.

As far as postflop goes (if you do indeed decide to limp/call), I think you played it fine. I don't think he's folding any pocket pair or broadway cards on a low paired flop like that, and I wouldn't try to bluff early on in general. On turn there's a decent chance we're drawing dead so easy fold. If he checks turn again and you pick up an openender I would bet though, because he will have A-high or two mere overs a lot on a coordinated board and getting better hands to fold is pretty valuable at that point.

Weird, all of a sudden he opens 4bb's. I'm really not used to this but can imagine it happens more on stars due to lack of potbetbutton. I like your fold here, especially since we have close to 0 postflop reads except for that he represented an A oop (but nothing concerned cbetting in position/doublebarreling/etc.). I think my defendingrange here would be like two broadwaycards, probaly A9/A8s as well and pocket pairs. 3betting with AQ+TT+ here I think, 99 being close, probably mix up between flatting/3betting. You're mainly looking for toppair here obv, since pot will be quity big postflop already, and a range of AJ-A9/KT+/QT+/JT will defenitly work for that.

Again, quite standard hand, but a short thing about cbet-sizing here. I think anything from 60-80 is good to cbet (on a board like this, but in general as well, don't make it too big). Thing to keep in mind is that it's headsup, and most of the hands you will be playing will be no pair vs no pair; it doesn't take a genius to figure out your cbets will be (semi-)bluffs most of the time so we want to keep them as small as possible so they become as good risk/reward as they can; half pot is my standard most of the time, 80 into 120 is good as well but I wouldn't really do any bigger (unless you have a read/note that villain doesn't care about betsizing and will call/fold for pot or 1bb, this way you can obv bet bigger for value etc, but we don't have that read here).

Ok, so far he seems to be pretty nitty, defenitly something to keep in mind. He folded 5/8 hands, I know this is a really small sample but he's defenitly not going to be a maniak and most of the time he will end up being quite tight for rest of the match.

Given that we just noticed how nitty this opponent has been so far, I would try and start raising close to 100% of my buttons, again, still with the occassional limp mixed in. This wouldn't be a bad hand to limp in with either fwiw, though in general you should try raising as much as you can if he folds his bb a lot. Obv fold vs his 3bet pre, your hand worth nothing. Note that he opened to 4bb's once, and he 3bet you now, so I suspect him to play all the hands he plays (or at least most of them) quite agressively.

Haha, ok, so appearantly he's not as tag-ish as I thought he would be. He probably just happened to have a hand last couple of times as far as I'm concerned. Check preflop is fine, even though I suspect his limping not to be THAT strong, I still think it has a decent amount of limp/calling hands in there given that he folded a bunch of buttons before I can't imagine him limping hands like 82o, and will defenitly have some hands like J9s included. Vs buttonlimps in general, I think the best way to act vs them is with "selective agressiveness" as bluemage would put it. Don't blindly raise them, fish will limp/call a bunch anyway and it sucks being oop with a marginal hand which doesn't flop too well. You can raise bluff him once (after checking first 3 times for example) but don't overdo it. Just try to widen your valueraising range a bit (like include hands like Q9o for raising limps if you think villain is weak most of the time) and you will not need to raise them that much.
Flop check is also fine, fwiw I would probably check/fold here if he bets pot. We just have a really marginal hand and not a lot of cards which improve us, and we don't know if (any) of our outs are good (two pair could give him a straight etc). If he bets 1bb I would be more inclined to call. Reason why I don't lead here is to see if he bets 100% when checked to him, which is why I check most of the time the first couple of buttons villain limped. He checked back, so we should be inclined to (bluff) lead out some more in the future given that he's not autostabbing.

Turn is obviously a mustbet. I don't mind your 1bb bet tbh. I think he would bet flushdraws on flop, as would he bet toppair and middle pair before more overcards come, so mainly looking at straightdraws and bottom/3rd pair to get value from and you're doing great against pretty much all those hands. Sucks a bit if he calls and river is a 6 but I think you can safely check/fold given that I doubt he's turning a lot of onepair hands in a bluff (76o for example) and if he valuebets them he's probably going to bet them pretty small (which I doubt a random fish does a lot, valuebetting thin).

I don't mind your bet of 80 here because in general there's no need to balance your range vs a fish, however note that the board of is REALLY dry and a bet of 60 will probably work just about as much to make him fold just because there's not much he can call you with here.

Ok, so this is the part where you raise. Even if his limpingrange consists of medium strength hands, you're doing GREAT vs those, and have them dominated A LOT. So just raise for value, to like 60-80, any amount is reasonable from 60 to 80 imo, you actually WANT him to call so 80 may be too big imo.
Given that he didn't autobet last time we checked to him in a limped pot, I think this is a good spot to lead out for 30 yourself. If he has nothing, it's unlikely he's going to put more money in the pot anyway himself. So just lead, try and get value from weaker Jx, 7x, flushdraws and straightdraws too. If you don't bet flop, I would defenitly minbet the turn. There's a second flushdraw out there and if you just bet 1bb a lot of people will call with Kx (while drawing to 4 outs to chop) because they have a bit of showdown as well with their highcard. After checking 3 times, river is indeed a check though I would defenitly put some more money in the pot if I were you at some previous point in the hand. Just try and have him bet his T8 as a bluff or whatever he checked back twice. I don't expect him to bet a lot on this river fwiw, though I don't see too much value in betting either given that you chop with Jx so only looking at 7x (which villain may bet himself) so yeah try to bluffcatch now.

I would defenitly cbet here. You flopped two pair, it's unlikely he has something better on this board so just bet for value against straightdraws/flushdraws/ace-high/overcards/low pocket pairs. Vs some opponents you can check back because they will autostab turn, but against this guy, I wouldn't count on it since he doesn't seem to stabbing when he didn't hit anyway. So only way some money is going to go in on turn/river if he hit something better (like JT and a J pops up on turn). It's going to be pretty rare like in this case that he's going to turn a flushdraw (or straightdraw sometimes) and that's going to c/c it again. Just bet flop, take it down and be done with the hand.

I know this sounds like "bet for protection" against this kind of opponent and betting for protection in general is a stupid reason to bet, but you can take down the pot and there's actually some worse hands he can call here with. It's also good info if he c/c's with - say - A3o and checks it down unimproved. Or he just calls with a flushdraw on flop and doesnt bluff river (something I expect him to do, not bluff very much, but we can't be sure of that just yet in a raised pot.

Hmmmz, really weird here imo. So far he seems to be pretty "passive" preflop and nitty too, so I think indeed his raising range is quite strong. However, I think I would still defend, just because we're not doing that miserable againts a decent amount of his hands and he's just so easy postflop to play. He doesn't seem to bluff, and even if he does know the concept of cbetting I doubt he's going to double barrel a lot unless he has a real hand. I don't mind a fold preflop because he's kind of nitty, but calling looks better given how he plays post.

Ok, 2.5bb's is good, again not going to go deeper into raise sizing preflop but I think the shallower you get indeed, the smaller you should raise and from 40bb's I think indeed 3bb's is a bit too big so I would either minraise or make it t75 here as well.

Then, he clicks it back, hmmmz. Ehm, you're getting 3 to 1 on your money here, I don't expect you to have the best hand here a lot but odds are just to good given the way he plays postflop. As far as I'm concerned, I'd try and play as much pots as possible vs this guy because he doesn't seem to tricky, and that includes calling preflop here. I wouldn't be too surprised if he has a hand like KQ, will check/call it on a 358cc board, and check down the rest of the hand when the board runs out Ax turn and 6x river. 3-1 is decent enough odds to call with a lot of holdings in position vs this villain.

Given that you checked all limped pots to him so far I would lead out here and I think he'll give you at least some credit for it. If you would've lead out a couple of times already I think c/f'ing this board would be best just to keep him passive/honest and to show that you don't try to win every pot but you haven't lead out a single time on flop so I would do it here.

Wow, I really didn't expect any fold equity here with your raise. Or at least very little. I know his betsizing makes him look weak (and he will be weakish a decent percentage of the time), but I just don't think you can make him fold with an extra 90, he will be getting good odds, and we don't even beat a hand like K4o here. He just seemed too fit/fold in previous hand to try and go for a cheap bluff here.

I would just fold vs his donkbet tbh, just let him win this pot here, so he will give some respect if we raise next time when he leads. If you DO decide to bluffraise here, I would make it sligthly bigger, 180 or 190 or something, to try and maximize fold equity on the flop since we rarely have showdown value here after getting called here.

Looks fine; again, dry board, so a little smaller (half pot) will do the trick here as well.

Ehm, given that you haven't raised so far vs his limps preflop, I think this is a good spot since he will fold a decent percentage of the time. I don't hate a check either fwiw, I think here it can go either way and I would probably do both ingame from time to time.

Flop: LEAD, really, lead! I think he will be checking back some holdings like T6o which have great implied odds vs our hand and will check back a ton but will defenitly call a bet from time to time. Vs someone who stabs 100% (or close to it) this is an easy checkraise on flop given that it's unlikely for him to have bottom pair since we hold two casecards so villain's range will be draws/nuts/air and he won't check back too much with showdown value. Vs this opponent however, I would just lead out 50 here given the drawyness of the board. As played, raisesize on flop looks a bit small since he probably has a piece of the board you can go a little bigger here (120-150). Obv snapcall shove and try to pair the board next time.

Again, you're being a little too passive here. There's defenitly some value in raising preflop. With these stacksizes, I wouldn't make it too big. You can minraise (keeps in a lot of hands) or go to 3bb's or anything in between (anything bigger will make you committed too much either pre- or postflop with these stacksizes).

Ok, now flop. Ehm, we know now that he indeed bets a flushdraw on the flop, but will probably check back his airhands. I think both checking and leading can go here. However, if you do check, it's too checkraise! He raised a couple of times preflop, so KJ+/AK/KK+/JJ is probably not in his range. I know it's the first time he bets pot but you're mainly only afraid of K5/55/J5 here and if you checkraise he'll jam his flushdraws a bunch of the time (or call with them), and will very likely stack off with any Kx hand here as well and he will have you beat only a real small percentage of the time.

I think you missed out a great double up spot here tbh, even if you check preflop, it's not too hard to put in 22bb's if villain pots it on the flop.

Given that he seems so fit/fold postflop you can defenitly raise here. I don't expect him to shove over minraises a lot either so you can try stealing a lot vs this opponent.

Again, really passive how you played this hand. I would make it 150 again preflop and expect to get called by a ton worse.

Flop is fine if you check though, given that he bets any piece/draw so far and if he has nothing he checks anyway so yeah. Turnbet is unnecessary once flop goes check/check imo, he just has nothing and it's really unlikely he has a hand he can call turn with, let alone call turn AND river with on this board. Just check, hope he hits a pair on river and try to get a small bet there.

Preflop fine obv vs him. However, although I'm sure this is a checkback/give up vs a ton of players, this particular opponent just seems to lead out with a made hand a decent percentage and still defends with some more marginal hands so I think cbetting is in order here. You don't have a lot of equity when getting called but betting 100-120 here seems fine and he will defenitly fold enough of the time to make it ev+. If you don't cbet I think turn is a clear fold, you be drawing very thin/dead here and he doesn't seem like the person to lead with a weak range or with draws here. You only have 3rd pair and most rivers will suck basically and his betting is ranged towards better made hands a ton if you ask me. Either cbet and give up or just give up from flop (unless you turn a K obv).

I'm not saying you should lead out here, but you should defenitly see it as an option. IMO too much people expect villain to "cbet" (there hasn't been a raise preflop so you can't really talk about cbetting) while this is not standard for a lot of villains and sometimes it's just better to lead out. Here it can go either way, since he checked down T-high before I don't mind just c/f'ing. You haven't lead out in any spot before, I don't advise it TOO much but defenitly see it as something you should try implementing in your game.

I think you can profitably cbet any type of board vs this opponent, though I can see why you checked back here and would do it myself a decent percentage of the time. Thing is he will be floating wide-ish here (any pair, openender, gutshot, and probably overcards too) but he will unlikely bluff them as far as we know, but in general his callingrange will consist of more pairhands than draws here. If you check back flop I don't mind the turnbet, since he's now very likely to be folding his weak/marginal pairs anyway.

Given stacksizes, I think leading flop and shipping every good turn is by far best play. Even if you don't lead out flop a lot in limped pots, I would've expected that you do it at least in some spots with hands like this when it's a raised pot. Board is really drawy and there's defenitly a ton of hands he's calling with that we're in decent shape against.

Turn obv is a c/f, so is river imo. I really really doubt he is ever bluffing here, or valuebetting a worse hand even... You only need to be good once every 4 times but you really don't get there vs this opponent.

Well, he's really easy to play postflop, but imo this is a fold preflop. I know I advised you to call with the T5s but you got better odds there, and blinds were lower so effective stacks deeper than here. 65o is really a marginal hand and you can't expect him to c/f the flop as often as he did here. You only have a little over 2 potsized bets left postflop, which is too little for a hand like 65o.

Interesting hand here. Preflop looks fine, given you checked so much and that he folded to the one time you raised, I think raising here would be fine too.

Flop you can again, lead out, don't fall into the habbit of autochecking flop. Given you checked each time before, I would lead out here some percentage of the time at least. Turn is a good card fire with some equity, yeah, he's defenitly folding some Kx/Ax hands here so leading looks good.

River I would make a fake blocking bet fwiw. I'd expect him to bet Jx or 8x a bunch on the flop, so he either has Tx/9x/KT/flushdraw/Qx here. Just make a small bet, like 90 or something, and let him fold his chops or better hands (KXcc for example). This move doesn't need to work too much for it to be profitable and he will have a busted draw enough of the time and will rarely bluffraise you.

Again, very good board to lead out on with your hand. Mainly because we have 8-high and still some equity when called and defenitly a good amount of fold equity vs a ton of better hands (mainly talking about highcard hands but it's a paired board so he will not have hit anything here most of the time and will unlikely float his J7o).

Yeah I think minraising here vs him is fine. I'd try and limp in a bunch of hands too frow now on with these stacksizes, like Kx hands, to see if he allows you to do it.

Meh I would just give up on this board. You don't need to win every pot and with these stacksizes on a board like this villain is going to check/jam a ton (or check/call), I doubt you have a lot of fold equity on flop here. Main value comes from minraising preflop and taking his blind anyway, don't cbet this with these stacksizes, almost all hands hit here.

Again, really really shallow to be minraise/folding here imo. Given you minraised almost all hands so far I would defenitly fold either this hand or the 32o hand just to show that you don't autoraise any button at this point and to keep him a little more passive. Flop bet is fine obv, he'll c/f a lot.

This is really close imo, because he's to tight.
Blinds 150 so you have to call 580 here in a pot of 880 which means you need less than 40% equity (39.726% to be exact).
Vs a range of 22+,Ax,Kx,any two broadwaycards you only have 36.58% equity so folding looks slightly better if you dont think he'll spazz with suited connected hands (which I think he will for SOME part but not enough to make it worth it).

Wow, what are doing here? Minraise/folding <6bb's deep or what? Or minraise/calling? Both seem inferior to just plain folding and jamming yourself. Thing is if he shoves over your minraise than you will be getting a little over 2-1 on your money so you just need to have two livecards to call here which makes minraise/folding so brutal. If you want to minraise/call then I think openshoving is a bit better because he's going to fold some hands he may shove over a minraise (thinking he has fold equity).
I'd just push/fold at this point, using nash, and here I would just fold although he's kind of nitty so you can probably openshove close to ATC (or at least wider than nash, because he's pretty nitty).

Pretty much same situation as the J8 though T9 has slightly better equity vs 22+,Ax,Kx,ATBC range and he seems to be shoving a bit wider lately from his buttons himself so I can imagine at least SOME suited connectors or hands like T8o which make this a call.

Ugh, I really hate minraising with a hand like this with these stacksizes. Minraise/folding isn't really an option imo given stacksizes and the fact that your hand has decent equity to call it off. So I'd just openjam hoping for a little fold equity from hands like JTo which may shove over a minraise but fold vs an openshove (because of imaginary fold equity they think they have). Just jam/fold when you're 10bb's shallow vs most opponents unless there's a limping metagame going in which case you can defenitly limp/fold this.

This is why minraise/folding is so brutal, just openshove here as well. I know he folds a lot to your minraise but you can't minraise/fold here imo.

Just look at pot odds, you need to call 1000 more into 1600-ish pot which means you need around 38% equity and you have K-high so you're not often going to be in that bad a shape!

Again, close spot, given that he openjammed J5s before I think you can profitably call here for <6bb's.

Given he's tightish I think openjamming is fine here though in general I think you should've started playing push/fold a bit earlier since villain was doing the same thing. With <10bb's stacksizes raise/folding is just brutal in a lot of spots with hands like Kx or T9 and math shows you can openshove those hands anyway so just make yourself easy and villain difficult (especially if he's jam/folding too).

Nice stuff, would read again. I picked up on a few small things I can improve on from this.

The logic behind "betting for protection" tilts me.
