Re: ****HU CASH REGS POKER TALK ONLY THREAD****

Im just a low stakes amature, but would like some help with simple stuff

Yesterday I was a maniac 3betting me 40% and 5bet shoving 40% (16% range). His coldcall from the BB was 20%. He didnt ever flatcall a 4bet, 80% cbet 3bet pots, didnt adjust when getting 200bb deep. He was stacking off with A rags aswel a bunch of times. What kind of openingsrange, 4bet range, and 3bet calling range would you take against him? I was opening ~55% and 4betting ~30% (16,5% range) and calling his 3bet 20% (11% range). Is is the right way to play against him? Or am I overdoing it and should be a little tighter? I ran like 7BI's above EV and the result was b/e... (I understand variance and sample etc)

Drive was great imo, very stylish, calm and brutal same time.

I just found BBC Sherlock miniseries. 90min episodes, better than most movies last year. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1475582/

Great action movies (not sure if all of them qualify as 'action' actually): No Country For Old Men, Death Proof, From Dusk Till Dawn, Desperado, The Dark Knight. If you're looking for a more recent movies, Machete & Fast Five were decent watch, but not as great as previously mentioned movies.

pokerman1992, somehow I suspect youre a swede?

but yea, i enjoyed sherlock miniseries aswell alot, gonna watch the man from nowhere now.
Watched Killer Elite yesterday, bad by jason statham standards(not to mention DE NIRO standards cept for his comedy attempts), so in moviestandards that a real lowball

hopefully 2012 will be a great movieyear, 2011 was really poor except for warrior pretty much, that movie absolutely killed.

i got some manlove for



after watching warrior. (spoilertagged a comment below in case someone supersensitive reads this thread, regarding new batman movie.)

And if we had complete air, we would've probably bet the turn ourselves (+ that's also what we do with our valuehands). So when we do check we're basically saying we've got a hand with somewhat showdown value but it's not good enough for a valuebet (or calling 2 streets).

If I'm villain I'm betting almost all my pairs (in position) on the turn for value out of Ace high, underpairs and draws. As well as some checked behind weak Qx.
I think it's quite a leak if you don't cbet anything but strong Q and better. You will be too unbalanced.
It's a big difference between regs, fish, people who cbet with 22 here and people who only bet with a Q and better. So there's different merits to play the hand depending on who you think villian is.

If you believe that you're up against a good villian then bet/bet is probably good, but a good villian should cbet here so that's not very likely imo.

So if I assume it's a weak reg or fish I don't want to bluff here, mainly because the turn is too low and I don't think he will fold that much on the river.

So Ch/C once or Ch/F, probably doesn't matter that much.

Bet bet early in the match. A. You take it down. or B. You get really valuable info regarding what the villain cks back with. Bet bet is win win.

Re: ****HU CASH REGS POKER TALK ONLY THREAD****

A question regarding common adjustments:

It is standard, when facing an opponent who doesn't fold to 3bets, to eliminate your 3bet bluffing range and widen your 3bet value range if he isn't 4betting. Is it common to find opponents that don't fold to 3bets often enough, but fold to cbets so often in 3bet pots that we increase our 3bet frequency? If so, against those opponents how are we distributing our 3bet range?

I didn't say that's what I do. On this flop I would cbet all my air, all my TPMK+better and probably cbet 50% of the time with random pairs, depending on villain's game ofcourse, whether he stabs turns and that stuff. So I ment if I would check behind this flop, I'm betting turn for value very thin if checked to.

But you're right, it probably doesn't matter that much.

Yes.

Is it common to find opponents that don't fold to 3bets often enough, but fold to cbets so often in 3bet pots that we increase our 3bet frequency?

Imo, not really. Unless they're fish. But regulars that like to play 3bet pots generally don't play fit/fold postflop

If so, against those opponents how are we distributing our 3bet range?

Add some of that "bluffing range" again, ldo
Just my two cents.

Thanks boss.

Cheers for the recommendations Jekus. Seen a few of them and they're all very good. Loved Lock, Stock! Watched Crank last night because Jason Stratham is top notch, and it was quality mindless action and violence - great!

Re: ****HU CASH REGS POKER TALK ONLY THREAD****

Do you keep your value range high though, like QTo, 88, A8o, K9o as you would against someone who calls too many 3bets and doesnt 4bet much but doesnt really fold enough post or do you get more value from flatting them since they will just fold to your cbets when you do hit? I am talking about the type of fish or weak reg that folds to 3bets like 15% but folds to cbets in 3bet pots like 70%.

I usually just end up 3betting my standard 18% polar range but feel like I could be making a good adjustment like flatting some of my value hands and 3betting more bluffs just to win with a cbet.

If a villain is good he would be able to adjust by checking back pairs if you're gonna bet/bet.
Villian can't adjust by checking back pairs before he have seen us bet/bet, if he does so it's not an adjustment.
But I feel like that hand is done.
Being aggro in the beginning vs a reg is usually good, being a bit more passive vs a fish and see what he does is usually good as well.
