Sixth hh review: yaqh $80

Okay, moved to Manchester, have some time to pick up on these. Yaqh's one was first so here it is. =)

Yeah, std fold obv. I wouldn't mind defending this though my defending range early on is pretty huge, J2o shouldn't really be in it.

Interesting hand from the start. Ehm, I'll assume this a random opponent right? His donkbet could mean anything here obv, from total air to small pocket pairs to 2x or A-high really. I really like your smallish raise on the flop fwiw. Reason for this is that fish in general will call here with hands like JTo to try and hit their "top two" if you make it small enough. Also, 2x or small pocket pairs might jam over it for protection which is obv a nice added effect. Even though his range will include a lot of air, in which case we should be flatting, the board texture just screams out for a small raise because a ton of his air will be floating.

Okay, so now, he clicks it back. Wow, such an awesome spot haha. Ehm, obv we're not ever folding, so the question is between repopping and flatting. I don't really know how much fish can see through flatting as being a pretty strong move on this type of board tbh. Tbh, I'd probably click it back myself again on the flop for same reasons as original raise. He'll still peel with his so called livecards and if he has a hand like JT with a heart, pretty sure he still flats and openjams any 9/J/T/Q/A/heart turn. Maybe also some other turns to try and bluff us off whatever we'd be holding. I don't hate a flat to let him spazz more but I think there's a bit more value in clicking it back on flop.

Okay, now that we got to turn like this (which is fine as well obv), either jam or flat again? After we call, the pot will be 1840 with 560 behind. His range still includes a lot of air if you ask me, and even after you flatted flop he still barreled turn, so I'd just flat again here after calling flop I think. I think he's jamming river anyway, whether he has a missed draw or hits (either a better or 2nd best hand) and also a decent amount of total bluffs on river he'll be jamming if you ask me. You might find a case for jamming since he's committed with his flushdraws anyway, and you could say that he won't always jam them on river when he missed, but giving his line, I don't think he sees any action as particular strong so let's just let him barrel!

Interesting spot. I guess the reason you called is that you think he's still a bit on tilt from hand 2. Notice however, that in hand 3, he just minraised his button liked he did before. No 3x or 4x or bigger or openjam, he just kept playing normally. To begin with I wouldn't even open to 3x here in which case you wouldve had an easy fold if you ask me, but stacks are 31bb's so I would just drop it to minraising in general for reason stated in other hh reviews before).
We need 44.44% equity to call in this spot, let's see how we do vs a bad range for us:

equity win tie pots won pots tied
Hand 0: 41.306% 40.75% 00.55% 781525736 10633536.00 { KTs }
Hand 1: 58.694% 58.14% 00.55% 1114987672 10633536.00 { 22+, A2s+, KJs+, A2o+, KJo+ }

41.31% equity we have. Not enough clearly, and tbh, this is what I think the biggest part of his range exists of.

Let's just add all broadwaycards (KT/QT/QJ/JT) and see that:

equity win tie pots won pots tied
Hand 0: 44.848% 43.04% 01.81% 969897296 40714032.00 { KTs }
Hand 1: 55.152% 53.34% 01.81% 1202066704 40714032.00 { 22+, A2s+, KTs+, QTs+, JTs, A2o+, KTo+, QTo+, JTo }

which means we got odds to call. Not entirely sure if he'd jam all of these, but given that I didn't even put any spazzes from suited connectors, or worse Kx hands, 3x/calling seems fine here. Notice however, that if you change KTs to KTo vs the last range, that your equity drops to 41.77% in which case we have a clear fold spot again.

I wouldn't really mind an open here, since you looked pretty nitty so far (preflop that is), though this would be the bottom of my range obv. You can still hit 2card straights with this though, which means it makes my openingrequirements.

K cool, looks fine. Obv nothing else we can do on this board. Not a fan of leading and trying to bluffcatch on later streets with A-high yet. Just take a note on his cbet sizing on this type of board (for future purposes).

Nh sir. Preflop looks standard, though he opens a lot we don't know if he folds to 3bets easily. Flop is standard obv, I prefer to take the lead here than to c/c the small bet and see a potsized bet on the turn when we pick up OE or flushdraw; we also have a decent amount of fold equity on a board like this it seems.

Turn is pretty good card to barrel, we pick up some extra outs now and his handrange shouldn't be that strong. Only real interesting is riverbet if you ask me. We don't have any reasons to assume that he's
1) a big station with 9x/TT-KK
2) plays an A like this
3) barrels his busted draws
4) will spazz over a smallishbet with both weak showdown and busted draws
in which case I don't mind anything from 250-450 to try and test either of these.

Preflop is fine but WOW, wtf are you doing on flop hah. You've seen him spazz out before when you raised his potlead. Also, this board is SUPERdrawy, in which case there's so much more value to be had from any piece of the board by just raising it up to 300-360 (I'd go around 350 tbh because his range will probably include more draws than total air).

Turnjam seems fine with these stacksizes, though I'd just raise flop and get it in on any turn (except maybe a jack) tbh.

Sick spot. Third time he leads pot though, however, I really like your fold here. Point is that we're only barely beating a random range of hands, and we can't stand any heat on almost no turncards save a few. Especially this shallow, nothing much more to do. We're flipping against any club basically, any 8x has us crushed and we're not doing good either against gutter + club hands either. Nh imo.

Same as before with the A2o, not really the board we want to have action on, esp not vs a potbet, and even less so because our gutter makes a better onecardstraight on the board.

I would most likely lead here. His limping range is probably weak and aimed at cards 8 or lower so a lot of value to be had from weaker pairs or gutters or maybe both but we're in good shape vs his range if you ask me. I'd bet t30 here.

I'd checkraise and get this in for 40bb's tbh. I know the board isn't drawheavy, but if you checkraise to t200 expect to get floated by random overcard(s) or even cards between the 6 and the J (or spazz 3bets like he did before from total air?). Also, don't think 6x or pocket pairs < JJ are folding when you checkraise the flop.

If you opt to c/c flop then river looks fine, nh. (I guess you c/c flop because you figure he's going to keep betting at it, however, we never been into a spot like this before in a raised pot so we have no reason to believe he will continu betting, especially against our pair of jacks which is still kind of vulnerable atm with us not having an overcard blocker.)

Preflop is close, with the 56s giving how he loves the potbutton. It's gonna be checkraise all-in a lot of the time once we flop some sort of draw, just a reminder.

I wouldnt mind leading this flop smallish (t90) and bet a lot of turns (or checkraise all-in since he's likely to stab and a good turn falls of) to avoid just c/f'ing to his potbets all the time.

I'm seriously in doubt whether to just cbet and pick up the pot, or let him bluff, though I think i'm a little results oriented here. I don't mind how you played it and would fold river as well. Also notice how he hasn't 3bet us before so his flattingrange isnt necessarily that weak, he can easily flat AK-AT or 2 broadwaycards combinations as far as we know. Besides, our hand isn't THAT vulnerable so giving a free card isn't that betting.

His river jam is a bit weird and he can still have all sorts of hands here so I sincerely doubt you have odds to call here. Nh imo.

Bleh, stupid spot, he bet big with 2nd pair before and I doubt he's folding it so yeah... Nh, nothing you can do really against this opponent.

I like how you played this hand tbh, and this shows us a lot of info for the future. Notice how:
1) He didn't donk pot with total air, which means his big bets are usually at least SOME piece of the board (which makes the 66 hand even better of a fold looking back if you ask me).
2) He defended 93o vs a minraise pre
3) He bluffed on a pretty bad river bluffspot (which means flatting turn in 2nd hand with KQ on KK25 wouldve been better I guess).

Why are you bluffraising here to then c/f on one of the best cards for you? I don't get the point in bluffraising too much vs an opponent like this in the first place, let alone on a board like this with your sizing. Pretty sure he'll float hands like KT, any pair, any gutter/OE and maybe even more bull**** hands and he'll take it away on pretty much all turns except an ace. If you're raising to get value from his draws/floats, then I don't see how you can c/f this turn.
Just wait for hands to either bluffcatch him, or valuetown him big when you have a hand that can stand heat.

I would again just fold here. You have some more outs than the 66 hand if you're behind obv, but again, he didn't donk 93o and on this board, you'll hate all turncards really apart from maybe 20% from the deck. How comfortable would you be calling down on 9/T/J/K turns when he bets again? Once he bets, he doesn't seem to stop so far it seems, unless he has showdown value (notice the J9o hand against his middle pair that turned 3rd pair?).

I don't think I would flat flop here tbh. Seems like a spot that'll get you in trouble a lot on turn since he'll be betting big again. Also, with these stacksizes, I wouldnt expect a lot of fold equity on turn, especially not a turn like this (it really surprised me that he folded on this specific turn fwiw).

Just jam flop if you ask me, 480 in the pot after you call and you only have 2 potbets left. His range is big enough to have enough fold equity to make it ev+. Also, if he decides to call it off with a straightdraw, we're in pretty good shape since we have blockers for hands like 97/96/76/A3/A4/43.

Bleh, pre and flop are std obv. Turn I might be inclined to bet for really thin value since he doesn't seem to have a lot and pretty sure he doesn't fold pair + gutter and his preflop range is HUGE from the 93o hand so he could have T3o or J3o or anything Tx or Jx here really. Let alone 9x who will probably pay you off itself... Not trying to be results oriented, but it also prevents you from calling a bigger riverbet. I say thin value because we don't beat QJT pick 2 with our kicker and it's an easy fold if getting checkraised.

Rivercall seems thinner than it looks, since for us to call, it would require him to change 3x or some mid-low pocket pair or random float in a bluff. However, from all the weird stuff we seen from him so far, looks pretty okay to call down since he could easily have random airballz here.

Notice however how he's boardtexture-aware. He didn't try and protect his toppair hand here (though we haven't had any showdown in other hands) since it's not a drawheavy board and only one overcard can fall. Something we might find usefull in the future.

SWEEEEEEEEET, TOP PFAIR! Finally.
Like how you played it. I guess the flop check was to checkraise/get it in? Obv not overly thrilled with just the 6s but still checkraise/get it in seems best since we also have toppair with it and a lot of worse hands he's getting in or hands we're flipping against or just flatting. Turn seems std, lol @ his potraise/fold haha, nh sir!

See how you just need a hand once and can win t600 from him without showdown and it isn't necessarry to start bluffraising too much vs this kind of opponents? Sucks that you were a bit carddead but they give you so much chips for free if you DO have a hand so it's all good.

WOW, I REALLY dislike your jam here fwiw, ugh. =/ So much more value to be had. He clicked it back pre before, I don't expect his range to be stackoff worthy though you obv never know that he might call it off with like A6o.

What I do know however is that - if you just make it 400-ish preflop - he's gonna be jamming SO MUCH MORE or at least flatting and openjamming all flops and there's only a very limited amount of flops that we would on (like T98sss for example) since we're gonna be getting 2-1 on a call and have 2 overs at the very least (and the best hand a bunch if we flop toppair or he has a draw).

Yeah I probably give up here, board is way too coordinated and our hand doesnt even bluffcatch well unless we would bet/bet/jam ourselves which I wouldnt advise against this type of opponent (they're usually aware of what's happening and will bluffcatch if they have a bluffcatch type of hand and might c/c c/c donkshove river themselves anyway).

Wouldn't mind a smallish flop lead hoping he just flats and then a big bet on the turn tbh. He'll float with enough Kx/Tx or Qx/Jx that he'll fold on turn instead of raising pot (which would be a jam effective).

Since he checked back flop I would probably stab turn as well though expect him to have showdown value to say the least. Preflop is about the cutoff for my range to defend I guess. Also, wouldn't mind a small 3bet with this hand, expecting to get 100% calls and then just cbet most boards and pick it up. Don't try to get too fancy like I explained before, but once in a while a well placed bluff is never wrong. As long as you try and not win every pot vs this type of opponents it's fine.

If you didn't win last hand on a similar board, I wouldn't mind a raise to 475 or something on this board but I think he's way more likely to play back since you got him of his hand one hand ago.

Preflop I'd raise up his limp. Imo, his limping range is pretty weak, I expect him to flat a lot and limp/reraise almost never (in which case I'd fold to the limp/raise because he could have like A6o and he won't fold it to a jam ever). Just 3x it and play postflop against a range that has a lot of dominated hands or 2 unders in general.

Flop I don't mind a check for checkraising, he's been stabbing most pots so far.

Turn is def a lead for value, I wouldn't mind making it a bit bigger for value since his callingrange will be pretty much the same.

River seems fine since clubs missed and if we bet again I don't know how much he's calling with 3x or 5x for that matter or if he's capable of raising 2 pair hands for example, so nh.

Interesting hand, once again. =)
Pre and flop look std if you ask me, not that many bad turncards that can come really. Fwiw, he seems to have put a lot of money in already without getting stacks in, but we have no clue about his 3barrel bluff range. For that case, I'd probably be most likely to jam turn myself with these stacksizes. I think we have the best hand a ton here and probably have some outs if not. Reason for this is 2fold:
- We don't know how much 3barrels he does because we havent been to showdown yet.
- We avoid folding the best hand on some bad rivers (like this one) since we don't know if the first applies or not.
I would be more inclined to flat with a much less vulnerable hand like KQ for example; only Ax is really the river we don't want to see and we're calling anyway... Just jam turn and expect to pick up the pot most of the time against him I guess. A/K/J rivers still suck with your hand and I guess you can fold now that you come so far this way.

I would bluffcatch here so much. Notice how his limpingrange is likely to be weak, and the fact that he checked back 94o on T52cc wasnt the brightest idea. I also doubt that he's gonna be betting 4th pair on the river if he has like 85 with one club if he pairs up so i'm pretty comfortable c/c c/c on turn/river unless a club falls tbh, especially if he pots river.

I might flat here or make a small 3bet; doesn't look this opponent will notice this and exploit it. Think flatting is fine tbh and leading small on a ton of flops or just checking. Doesn't really matter how/where you get the money in really, just a minor ev-difference if you ask me.

Reason for flatting is obv because he will MR/fold a bunch but wont get away from a bad toppair or middle pair postflop really.

Wow, why on earth are you limping? He's pretty loose pre (defended 93o, remember?) and been potting into you without preflop initiative anyway so why not raise and let him fire 200 on the flop and either call or jam over it? I see like ZERO reasons to limp preflop, especially because you jammed over a minraise prior hand so if anything, I'd expect him to jam over it wider than usualy himself.

Also, not being results oriented here, but do you really think he's gonna be 3x'ing that much oop with garbage with these stacksizes? Seems that it's more likely of him flatting and betting 200 on flop into you which is like 250 extra chips he puts in the pot instead of 100.

Yeah giving up seems okay. Wouldn't mind a raise to 485 or something in this spot though, esp since he seemed board aware and he's unlikely to be donking an ace on the flop.

Might jam here shallower but he called KTs so don't think it's ev+ for 30bb's stacks really and calling oop doesn't seem like the best idea here either.

Idk what to think of your flop float tbh, especially without a diamond. I guess you were planning on blufraising most turns that were like 9+ cards? Guess it's okay but dont forget you cant just call to hit an overcard here because he will fire the turn A TON and I dont know how much he will be folding two pair even if an overcard falls (in which case we got good implied odds on our 8/7 though not as much FE on bluffcards and we could be dominated by better "air" donking hands like Q8 or smth). I might limp with this and see how he reacts here for the first time. Our hand doesn't flop that well and we can see if he raises limp wide.

Nh, well played. Limping seems fine, he's not aggro against them. Turn is an obv jam, he won't have an A all that often and will fold 3rd or 4th pair enough.

Seems like a jam to me. He opens enough, rarely folds buttons really, has limped a couple times so far but don't think he does it enough to justify not jamming here.

180 in the pot we can take right there; let's say his callingrange is perfect (which isn't the case obv, since he's either folding K7-type hands or also calling QJT pick 2 type hands, but for the sake of education...):
equity win tie pots won pots tied
Hand 0: 33.859% 32.19% 01.66% 2070590724 106993152.00 { K6o }
Hand 1: 66.141% 64.48% 01.66% 4146836796 106993152.00 { 22+, A2s+, K7s, A2o+, K7o+ }

So if we get called we're going to be in a 2630 pot with 33.859% equity and will lose 424.5 chips everytime we get called.
A range of [22+,A2s+,K7s,A2o+,K7o+] is 26.1% of all hands and he needs to fold 2.3555 times as much as he opens to even out the ev we lose from jamming and getting called which means he needs to open 61.5% of the time, which is OBV true and this is even with a perfect callingrange against our hand.

I probably bet the flop here to protect our equity since he's not the checkraise type of guy and we still have an over and some backdoor straights and overcard if we get called. Also, he defends wide and donks wide, so we need to bet here if you ask me, just to take down the pot. Sucks if he c/c's and pots turn or smth but we really have nothing anyway and he'll fold often enough for a t135 cbet to be profitable.

Both flatting and jamming pre look fine, more a fan of flatting since K8s flops semi-decently and he's putting more money in postflop anyway.

Not a big fan of minraising here though he seems to have nitted it up a bit. Still would just fold and wait for at least something sooted (which means we have 10% more flops we like if he flats/donks pot on flop).

Wow, ehm, why on earth did you jam here? Apart from the 2x click it back, this is the first time he 3bet. You think he tries to look strong after folding so many hands? Call > fold > jam here imo, ainec. Doubt he 3bet/folds hands like A-rag if he decides to 3bet them anyway, also not KJ/KQ so you're pretty much in a sucky spot.

Just heard that villain WAS indead sitting out for a number of hands (now I get the T2o raise), in which case call = jam > fold imo. Thing with flatting is that we flop reasonably good (mostly toppairs or 2nd pairs or strong draws) and he's almost always leading out if wwe hit if you ask me. Think it's pretty close but you have enough behind to not have to jam here I think, though picking up the dead money is fine again. Think you can do both, flatting or jamming. If this is his first hand back, I agree that jamming is obv ev+ as well.

Wow. Ehm, preflop, to start with, I don't mind as much, however, I wouldn't mind minraising either since it's suited which means we can jam all his potleads when we flop a ten/flushdraw and also some openenders probably or just random flops on AQx or smth (since he donked these type of boards a lot before and his texture awareness means he's probably not doing it for value). But okay, we limp, fair enough.

How can you NOT bet the flop? Even if it's just protecting your equity when he has worse? He'll donk turn A BUNCH if you ask me and unless you plan on jamming over a turn potbet (which I think is too much of an overbet), just bet flop! This guy is actually capable of checkraising and folding to your jam so plz plz bet flop here.

Since the hands he folded before where because he was sitting out, I'd still assume he's minraising wide and folding at least some percentage (and sometimes calls worse like QJT9 pick 2) so I'd just jam here for 11bb's effective.

Yeah no need to get fancy, given the stacksizes I think his callingrange is wide enough to just openjam. Minraising will even be noticed by a fish here if you ask me.

Nh lol, and agreed, to shallow to not get it in here and he hasnt openjammed before iirc so his range isnt necessarrily superstrong though we never been this shallow before in this spot, still obv getting QT in.

Ehm, not THAT big a fan of preflop really. I'd probably limp, would be inclined to openjam A6o though suited is obv a ton better but minraising seems fine.

Postflop looks fine. I might call turn though it's superdrawheavy now with the multiple gutters and flushdraws so I guess he's not getting away from a combodraw or pair + draw anyway. Sick that he had you beat here fwiw...

Thank you spamz0r. I studied all your other reviews and I think they improved my game a lot. Do you still accept HHs for review?

Re: Sixth hh review: yaqh $80

I think my standard flop line is a minraise. How would that stack up here?

Re: Sixth hh review: yaqh $80

Stellar as always, love the commentary about flatting suited connectors pre given expected c-bet size, for example. One thing I didn't quite understand:

Quote:
I like how you played this hand tbh, and this shows us a lot of info for the future. Notice how:
1) He didn't donk pot with total air, which means his big bets are usually at least SOME piece of the board (which makes the 66 hand even better of a fold looking back if you ask me).
Quote:
Hand #38
Quote:
I don't think I would flat flop here tbh. Seems like a spot that'll get you in trouble a lot on turn since he'll be betting big again. Also, with these stacksizes, I wouldnt expect a lot of fold equity on turn, especially not a turn like this (it really surprised me that he folded on this specific turn fwiw).

Just jam flop if you ask me, 480 in the pot after you call and you only have 2 potbets left. His range is big enough to have enough fold equity to make it ev+. Also, if he decides to call it off with a straightdraw, we're in pretty good shape since we have blockers for hands like 97/96/76/A3/A4/43.
Can you give me a betting range and partition that into a bet/fold and bet/call range? Or you could make me do that work But given that he probably has some piece of the board and people like this don't like folding, I'm unconvinced (surprised, anyway) it's +EV.

Re: Sixth hh review: yaqh $80

Hand 20: Could you elaborate on the call? Don't you think villain will often jam two overs or A high? (Aside from a 5?).

Hand 21: Our opponent seems very spewy. Do you really think it's worth it to donk with the 56 and checkraise an openeder or FD? Isn't just folding and trying to hit better nexttime much easier and better vs this player (as you stated later when we flopped top pair?)

Hand 31: Calling sucks as he will read the weakness when we check the river and most likely put in a much bigger bet then. Also we don't know what he's doing it with, so same for c/r: If he calls we can't do anything on most rivers. Betting I also don't like because we probably get raised and he will probably bluff his missed draws or call another bet when they turn into a pair. Good cards are only Q+ or a 2 or 6. So is fold best?

Hand 54: Your OOP comment doesn't fit? Or do you mean if we had same cards OOP?

Hand 76: Same as hand 21, also what do you want to incline by him "not being board aware"? This board seems much wetter than the board he hit the king on. Also we saw him clicking it back in the second hand with a weak holding.

Re: Sixth hh review: yaqh $80

ehm; his ranges changed a bit through the hh if you ask me; by the end you could obv see that he just wanted to win every pot apart from the occasional ones he didn't want it seemed... the 852r texture is also different from the Q86 texture for example; i expect someone like this to also donk hands like KQJT9 pick 2 for overcards and then get stacks in when they hit (because they dont want to checkraise or check/fold).
let's say his bettingrange includes all toppair and middlepair and any gutter with an overcard or OE; which means:

equity win tie pots won pots tied
Hand 0: 31.005% 30.74% 00.27% 1223211 10737.00 { A9o }
Hand 1: 68.995% 68.72% 00.27% 2735115 10737.00 { A8s, A5s-A3s, K8s, K5s, Q8s, Q5s, J8s, J5s, T8s, T5s, 95s+, 82s+, 75s+, 64s+, 52s+, A8o, A5o-A3o, K8o, K5o, Q8o, Q5o, J8o, J5o, T8o, T5o, 95o+, 82o+, 75o+, 64o+, 52o+ }

You do the math to see how much he needs to bet/fold? Note that I didn't include any KQ type of hands he might bet/call; or worse Ax sometimes (A6/A7) or worse draws maybe or better Ax but I guess a ton cancel out and won't change our equity that much.

There's 320 up for grabs in the pot; if we fold now we can say we lose nothing obv and our stack remains t1235, if we jam he folds we gain 320. If we jam and he calls we're in a 2630 pot with 31% equity. Which means we'll get back 815 chips every time from the pot which is a loss of 420? Which means he has to fold > 50% of the time which seems like a lot looking afterwards if my math is correct, though his bet/callingrange seems about as bad as it gets vs our range (can only go up really unless you start including 99+ or AT+ type of hands which i dont think are in his range much). Also his preflop range is superhuge (I even added 82o for example which could be in there obv though i forgot what reads we had so far... we saw the 93o hand so far, did we see his c/c KT for example? etc.)
Looking back a that point in time I guess jamming/folding is really close but I still don't mind either, calling seems like the worst option, esp since his range will include a lot of hands with 2 livecards which i think yaqh is going to try and rep on turn (K/Q/J) if they fall and he donks again and I cant see him folding toppair then tbh... Note that his frequency to donk pot and try to win all of them kept going up and up really, so his range for doing so was getting wider and wider and the only reason I had for thinking that he always had SOME piece at a certain point was that he didnt stab the 93o earlier.

Also, if you're gonna ask questions about hands, plz make sure to also copy/paste the hand especially if it's a math question so I dont need to scroll up everytime for stacksizes.
