Ninth hh review: maruchan vs mjw006 $5

In this hh review, hero is Maruchan and villain is mjw006/matt. I got both hh's and will fill in villain's hand and thoughts where I think it's interesting enough to discuss.

BB: t1500 M = 50
Hero (BTN/SB): t1500 M = 50

Pre Flop: (t30) Hero is BTN/SB with T 5
Hero raises to t40, BB calls t20

Flop: (t80) Q J 6 (2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets t40, BB folds

Final Pot: t80
Hero wins t80
Hmmm, T5o is like bottom 25% of hands all-in equity wise. I'm not saying you should open 75% or less but from playability perspective T5o doesn't have much going really. I'd way rather open 64o than T5o really. Hands I'd not open are pretty much T2o-T5o, 92o-94o, etc.

Matt had 32cc in this spot and think is pretty std defend with something that can flop pretty hidden monsters (especially since he checkraised low paired boards 24/7 ). I wouldn't mind a bluffcheckraise on this board since there's little unpaired hands that maruchan can continu with and even 6x would be best to just fold to flopcheckraise I guess (depending on kicker/backdoorz/blockerz), though I obv wouldn't do it all the time and starting out a bit slower till you have some more reads is better.

Interesting that matt 3x'es and maruchan minraises. Might get into some intersting spots lately especially if they start mixing up openingsizes.

Somewhat more interesting hand that can go in all sort of lines really. Matt could def make a - not too big - 3bet pre here though calling is fine as well. I'm not used to reg speeds so I don't know how cool you are/should be with getting it in with one pair for like 73bb's on a (semi-dry/dry/wet) flop though it's obv not a problem in turbo's where stacks are 50bb's or less (though I don't think it's that much of a problem against a somewhat competent/aggro player).

Matt checked the flop. Ehm, again, can go either way, I think he can definitly lead flop here and fire pretty much all turns he can think of because in general, people will call flop and fold turn a bunch. Not a huge fan of doing this all the time with just 2 overs and nothing else on a board like this, but this is a flop I donk with a wide range and hands like KQJT pick 2 are definitly a slight portion of my range.

Maruchan doesn't cbet, guess that's alright some percentage of the time though cbetting and protecting equity will be slightly better against unknowns I'd say. I wouldn't be worried about getting checkraised here since pretty much all 6x or 7x have 40% equity anyway so we can safely fold our middle pair no kicker.

Turn is pretty standard from both really, matt stabbing after fail of cbetting which probably makes maruchan's range weaker and will get folds from A-high a decent percentage of the time and he could have best hand even. After you check flop you can't really fold turn in maruchan's spot readless, so calling is correct as well there.

River I think matt shouldve bet like t80 with his entire range if you ask me. After maruchan checking back flop and calling turn his range is like 5x 4x mainly, some hands like A3 maybe and some Qx obv as well, and most of them will fold on river when you bet smallish like t80 (which you can still vbet with Qx or strong 8x against an unknown since I don't expect to get bluffraised readless too often).

Std hand. Again, wouldn't hate a donklead here, but given frequency, just do it when you have the Kc for example which will not let you do it too often and will have SLIGHTLY better equity.

Like... in general, if you wanna bluff, just make sure you got some sort of (backdoor) draw. Just total random crap ass bluffing is way inferior to semi-bluffing with like as low as a gutshot or backdoor flush + straightdraws.

Matt had T7o fwiw, std obv for him as well to cbet his toppair.

Matt had 72o here, pretty sure I'd just fold that even though he didn't get any hands so far. Just muck it, no reason to play this at this point really vs someone who's not braindead/ultrabad.

In general, this is well-played obv, however, against matt, I might like either check back somewhat more or float flops where he's not repping too much (but that's just because I know his game a bit I guess so without these reads it's not so obv), esp with the backdoor flushdraw which are hearts .

But yeah, std played from both sides, matt had A6o fwiw, sizing looks fine as well.

Std once again, matt had T7o and I'm happy he didn't checkraise to rep trips once again.

Ehm, if I were matt and had KJo with a club here, I probably float because maruchan will most likely be betting J/K turn, also still comfortable calling a turnbet when A falls because I expect maruchan to bet that a lot and once we call there our hand looks like Ax A TON so I doubt he's firing river as a bluff ever and we will have best hand most of the time given maruchan opens fairly wide on button so far.

Looks fine. Wouldn't start getting fancy on a board like this. You'll flop some equity (as low as gutshot again or like backdoor flush or smth) often enough if you want to checkraise bluff here.

Just dump this **** on button really. Matt had 53dd here and don't mind the 3bet with these stacksizes though wouldn't mind a flat at all either (don't mind 3bet since maruchan called 0/1 3bets so far, small sample obv, but still).

I wouldn't mind a 3bet here though idk how much matt will 4bet bluff given that our hand looks like a spite 3bet so meh, flatting looks better. KJs also plays way more easily, rather 3bet KJo.

Matt had Q8o, and though it's not a bad board to bluffcheckraise vs a non-spazzy ABC-player, I wouldn't start playing back yet since maruchan doesn't really give any reason to do so.

Std, matt had an underpair here. If you really want to continu with an underpair on a board like A94r and you have 33 here or smth. It's def better to checkraise the flop at least some percentage of the time. There's some reason to do that:
1) If we get called, we got 2 clear outs and are now in a somewhat more bloated pot and can get stacks in on turn/river (obv unless villain has higher set or 52 but you get what i mean: if you bluff, have some outs/backdoor equity, even if it's just 2 outs, it beats a total random bluff).
2) If villain doesn't stab, he'll have like 30-ish percent equity with his 2 livecards/backdoorz/counterfeddaments on turn/river so we're protecting our equity a bit.

It's just that I see a lot of players checkraise bluff here with no equity at all on certain boards, not even an overcard vs 2nd pair for example. There's really no reason to do that, if your frequency of bluffing equals the times you have SOME equity, it's way better obv. Big difference between checkraising J T on AQ3hh compared to 98ss for example, just realize this (though with the straightdraws out there, I wouldn't advize it here).

86o is a bit loose but still good enough to defend imo. Especially if you have no real reads postflop it's not standard for someone to 2barrel/3barrel too much yet since he has no idea how stationy we are so that's fine.

Same as before, matt had Q9o here and I'd prefer a checkraise with like 4x or 5x way more here than just a random total bluff. Even just changing his hand to Q9dd or smth would be way better, not because our 4% more equity when getting called is huge, more because we can fire a bunch of turns easily since we actually pick up enough equity that we don't have to fire river too much to profitably barrel the turn.

Game's getting interesting, a lot of checkraises and some 3bets going on. =)

Same hand as the KJ vs 52 on 458Q7 early on which just proves that you should fire 40% of pot with almost your entire range on river either as bluff or for thin value. Only difference here is that 3flush on the turn will get floated by like a single high heart in which case you'll have somewhat more foldequity on river.

Just fold preflop here, really. Same concept as the postflop "bluffwithequity" part: 82o just doesn't flop anything worthwile.

Interesting spot though, matt had K9o and decided to turn his hand into a bluff on the river to fold out 2x or 3x. Sizing looks fine since his range consists mostly of 7x and I expect him to checkraise diamond or gutters most of the time so nice hand.

Interesting hand. Like I was talking about the KJ float on low paired board, pretty sure matt is not bluffing river here too much once you call twice because your line looks like Ax A LOT.

You can opt to checkraise flop if you don't know his barreling frequencies since all turn/rivers will suck pretty much and it's not gonna be hard to bluff you off a 4 by the river in general (unless in a spot like this where matt shouldn't be bluffing that much) because if 2 different overcards come you're gonna have a hard time bluffcatching and matt can valuebet/bluff quite a big range obv.

Matt had AK here, pretty sure I'd just make a normal 3bet here with your hand since you don't have any push/fold history yet (unless in previous games which I don't know about). Just make it like 160-200 or something and prepare to get 4bet jammed on a lot by dominated hands.

AK is also good enough to like bet/call almost any board when maruchan would flat pre and pot is 360 with 560 behind or something. I wouldn't mind a jam with 20bb's or less but 25bb's is a bit much if you ask me.

A bit too weak to defend with 64o at these stacksizes really. Again not the worst spot to bet turn and smallish river with almost entire range though I'd prefer at least SOME equity to do this (diamonds/Ax/Jx/9x obv).

Always curious why people defend like 64o but then for 1bb shallower stacks fold 75o. =)

Matt had K3o here which I probably defend since it's not the worst bluffcatcher on some boards that maruchan won't be firing too much and we can still flop toppair with it and checkraise some boards as total bluff so that maruchan is in a ****ty spot regarding stacksizes.

Preflop defend again, questionable though I do this from time to time as well.

Flop I'd check yeah, turn is a definite lead and I like your sizing a lot. Matt had A7o here and given that this board should smack maruchan's range pretty hard I like the checkback/give up (and bluffcatch some turns/rivers I guess or catch a 5outer to turn gin) since even hands like Q9o have like 40% here on this board and getting it in vs a checkraise is gonna be spew and you're gonna get checkraised so much here so looks fine.

Fwiw, maruchan, you should def cbet more. Don't go into auto-checking back bottom or middle pair really, cbetting will pick up the pot a lot really. If in this spot for example, matt checkraises, I'd just jam with middle pair (esp with a blocker against hands like 87). His checkraising will be a bluff enough % of the time to 3bet jam the flop I guess and if he has top pair so be it.


Matt had A2cc here, which I would've probably just jammed pre given that maruchan opens almost all buttons (though I don't mind flatting since it's suited really). Turn I probably c/f if I were matt, again, somewhat similar board to 2 previous times with lack of cbet but maruchan's range is pretty much middle/bottom pair at this point and no need to try to bluff him off it on this turn really given the boardstructure (and the fact that we will have cards 7-J a lot more than 2-6 in our range).

Maruchan: checking back bottom/middle pair will just let your opponent either:
- outdraw you on turn
- put you in awkward spots when villain leads A TON of turncards
- play pretty much perfect against your range on later streets with almost his entire range on certain board textures if he's somewhat thinking

Float much yo?

I don't mind the float THAT much but the better your absolute handstrength the better your float obv. Having KJ like I talked about earlier will be way better for a couple of reasons.

Matt had A9dd here and fwiw I really don't think he can cbet/fold this flop. You only need 28% to breakeven for a cbet/call here. Just look at this range which includes only toppair+ or flushdraws and it's a range that's not too wide/tight.

Board: Jh 6s 4h
Dead:

equity win tie pots won pots tied
Hand 0: 15.490% 15.49% 00.00% 10428 0.00 { Ad9d }
Hand 1: 84.510% 84.51% 00.00% 56892 0.00 { QQ+, KhQh, KJs, KhTh, Kh9h, QJs, QhTh, Qh9h, J9s+, Th9h, Th8h, 9h8h, KJo, QJo, J9o+ }

15.5%, far from enough you think obv. However, just add like one hand in, say KQ, and also 87s that he defends for example and see how our equity shoots up:

Board: Jh 6s 4h
Dead:

equity win tie pots won pots tied
Hand 0: 27.158% 27.16% 00.00% 23391 0.00 { Ad9d }
Hand 1: 72.842% 72.84% 00.00% 62739 0.00 { QQ+, KJs+, KhTh, Kh9h, QJs, QhTh, Qh9h, J9s+, Th9h, Th8h, 9h8h, 87s, KJo+, QJo, J9o+ }

over 27% already and this only includes one spazzhand that we beat really. Especially with the cbetsize matt used I think this just invites getting jammed on by maruchan's entire range so either cbet/fold smaller (180-ish) or bet like this and then call a jam.

Idk how you can fold here really. His frequency of 3betting so far has been high enough imo so that we're definitly not always dominated here (far from).

Don't mind the bluff3bet too much really. I'd cbet slightly bigger to give him more incentive to bluffjam (like 250-280 will get more jams I think). Or maybe even just check in general, given that you didn't cbet middle/bottom pair so far (though this is a 3bet pot and obv a different spot, still...) I feel that matt will try and bluff you off a weak pair often enough here.

Matt had T9 here, looks fine, I'd play it the same.

Matt just LOVES to checkraise paried flops. He had QT with a diamond here, don't mind it too much really in this spot. Your turnbet seems a bit big fwiw but nothing too weird.

It's close really, we don't have much push/fold action so far which probably makes this a fold I guess. Only time was around 25bb's and matt had AKo though we didn't have any showdown. Pretty sure his range is gonna be mainly Ax and low pocket pairs and messing with stove a bit and adding like 2 spazzhands which we crush makes it like a coinflip so just flip a coin really or see how much you wanna gambool. =)

Great job spamz, thanks !

fwiw, he's not defending 64o (he's opening it) where you question his 75o fold.
