Final Pot: t60

Folding Ax for just a minraise is something I wouldn't do really. People play so bad postflop and it's quite important to defend semi-widely to get some early postflop reads from unknowns.

First folding Ax then 3betting 75s from the start? Hah, sounds like something a cash player would do.
Ehm, I'm totally not a big fan of this, especially in the ftp turbo structure people just don't fold vs 3bets so it's really unnecessarry to start 3betting air early on without reads (though your hand isn't the worst to flop some equity with obv), just because they don't fold, I'd go with a wide 3bet valuerange to start off with and take it from there. =)

Just play postflop imo, a lot more interesting instead of the preflop wars that are standardly being eld nowadays. People just make so much bigger mistakes postflop really...

Also, don't expect to get THAT much metagame/balancing going against a random. Big chance he'll decline after one game and you'll never see him again.

He doesn't seem to have a std openingsize so going to showdown with either sizing will be very valuable if we ever have the chance.

He seems to play pretty fit/fold so far (3/3 right?) but doesn't mean he can't spazz if you take it away too much with cbets however.

Stop 3betting suited connectors, seriously. You'll notice it yourself once you start playing more ftp turbo's I guess but in my experience, people just don't fold vs 3bets enough to justify doing stuff like this readless.

Don't hate the checkback on flop tbh. We've been cbetting 100% so far and this board usually hits a defendingrange quite hard. Once he checks the turn stabbing looks good, nh.

He defends a lot, probably because we're "just" minraising, so we should cbet some boards we normally shouldnt because it would hit his range somewhat hard (like T97ss or smth); he'll have enough unconnected Ax/Kx/Qx in his range to make that profitable.

I probably defend here though we don't have any reads oop in raised pots which could make it a bit harder I guess.

Just cbet here as said before, his preflop range so far looks huge and he doesn't seem to spazz a lot and we have absolutely no showdown value.

Again, I probably defend here, but given that you had to show your e-penis by putting pressure preflop in the first blindlevel, again not going to be easy. =)

Jamming looks ev+ as well, even if he calls perfect (which will almost never be the case) but he's opening a decent amount of buttons.

Just cbet and take it down a ton if you ask me. Once he calls flop I'd just give up later streets.

Notice how he didn't jam this preflop but just defended and checked it down with very little showdown on this board.

E-penis in this hh imo. Again, unnecessarry and don't expect too much folds in general. Everytime you 3bet so far I would've loved a flat so much more.

Since he doesn't seem jamhappy, I wouldn't start limping untill he gives a reason for us to do so (esp since he flatted 33 there, just keep minraising and cbetting).

I don't mind your cbetsize too much because on a board like this in general it doesn't really matter that much since he plays pretty straightforward anyway. Watch out that he can spazz more often or start bluffraising when you use this sizing.

Turn I wouldn't fire tbh, once he calls flop he's got a piece and is unlikely folding turn. Just take your freecard with your medium strong drawing hand if you ask me.

Also, note how you "sucked out" and that he may start playing back a bit more now.

Looks ev+, flatting probably isn't too bad either (given villain's oop tendencies and his lack of cbetting 1/1 times, he looks like a really fit/fold player in which case I think flatting pre might be better but we have no idea about how accurate that is).

Yah don't mind this. Easy solution since K6o doesn't flop THAT well though he's really fit/fold/passive post so I wouldn't mind MR/fold and cbet smallish if he flats.

This is pretty close between openjam and MR/call (minraise/fold is not really an option fwiw, just stove a bit and you'll see why), I think minraising will be better here really. Just note that he probably won't be folding any Ax with these stacksizes, nor most strong Kx's or any pocket pair. Therefore it doesn't really matter if we minraise/call or openjam since his getting it in range will be pretty much the same. The only thing we can hope for is that he:
- either spazzes pre and jams some suited connectors
- flats (which is more likely) and we play a big pot in position with an easy to play hand

I usually would prefer KT+ or smth for MR/calling be better over openjamming in spots like this but given the likelyness of villain flatting pre I think QT/QJ would be my cutoff here.

Don't mind this since he doesn't seem too aggro before (apart from the openjamming button but that's std for 95% of players) and you'll be able to stab a lot postflop.

Would probably bet more than 1bb; t100 just looks like a stab to a lot of players, t110 for example will result in a decent amount more fold equity compared to what we risk.

Looks fine vs this opponent.

Cbetting might be closer than it looks since I don't think he's defending a lot of the weaker crap/lower cards this shallow really.

Also, cbet is unnecessarry big if you ask me.

A bit too weak/shallow to limp here, esp since you jammed previous hand I expect him to jam a lot over your limp.

Some comments while rypac and me went over it on msn:

rypac: hand 24 is interesting
i wouldn't deviate from the sizing any smaller just bc 1) half pot is already a good size and not really large 2) this guy has been folding such a % post that he could very well be folding weak pairs and some draws that most call with
so doing anything to encourage him to (correctly) call with something like 86 here or whatever is not encouraged
i mean normally going less looks ok, but i don't see the reason to do it here considering how often he's folded and the possible implications of going smaller
like, if it's not broke, don't fix it especially when the "fix" is to save chips and you're already only half pot cbetting
just from the risk reward standpoint, going less doesn't seem near worth it... double barrel points are good too, the last thing i want to do vs this guy is double barrel weak hands lol
shouldn't he bet the river too
it's kind of **** stacks i guess, but still seems to be value here
mientjeuh: with all those medium hearts out there?
rypac: maybe i'm just being results oriented tho
mientjeuh: only hearts that are worse
are 6h4h3h2h
and i dont see too much of them in his range
4flush board
he may be retarded
but i dont think he calls with like 2nd pair
even for 1/3 pot



rypac: rypac zegt:
hand 30
do you really fold T2o vs him there?
he's still been so weak post
mientjeuh: T2o is like
really really ****ty
i think it's like
keep the fish happy
imo
like
there's a huge difference against a fish
with raising 90%
or 100%
they'll notice
trust me
if we fold once or twice
which keeps him from jamming 10% more
i think it's more valuable
not to raise 100%



rypac: i think you let him off too easy on hand 36 prolly
if anything you might be encouraging villain to play this way
he may not move to fit or fold or 3bet as often as he will now if you keep minraising, and honestly if i had to guess i'd say MR is going to be a more profitable play than open shoving vs him anyways
