Re: Decisions Become Tougher On Every Street

I think DeathDonkey is right. The best hand to bluff with would be with the AsKx, which is roughly four combos. No one can have the nut-flush, and you are blocking AA,KK combos (only 3 of each instead of 6 of each), and you can also potentially hit an ace or king to win aside from the spade. I think w/ 88 you'd still rather have the eights be black rather than red. Rarely an 8 of spades will hit a flush and win the pot, and it is also impossible for 9s8s, and As8s to show up in opponents hands. Though my next candidate would be AsQx (borderline).

Re: Decisions Become Tougher On Every Street

Correction, 3 combos, AsKs is a completed flush. So given a range of 99+,AK,AQs, that's 2 combos completed hand (ace-high flush), and 3 bluffs. I'm not sure what the correct bluff-ratio is, but for my range it can't be 3:2 that I'm bluffing, and it doesn't make sense to pound anything else out for value.

I actually have two pre-flop strategies, one where I'll 4-bet my entire range, and throw in a random hand in a spot like this, and the other I just stop at 3. It's easier to do the first, because then there's a non-zero chance it's spades or contains a six.

Re: Decisions Become Tougher On Every Street

I'm not convinced AsKx is the best hand to use to x/r bluff the turn. I'd rather take a hand from our folding range than use one that clearly has enough equity to call. Isn't it better to use a hand that's just short of the equity needed to call, but also has some chance of improving and/or blockers to bluffcatchers? I'd rather use AhKh. It seems to satisfy all of these conditions.

As is a blocker to a bluff catcher though.
