Re: KQs in the SB vs. LAG OTB 2/5NL

I haven't read the other comments yet and I assume this has already been stated multiple times but:

Small turn donks (this is too small) are for spots where the turn card improves our range significantly more than our opponents. Your lead in this spot is terrible. Villan in theory has WAYYYY more flushes than we do. He's iso'ing a limp OTB so he can have virtually every suited connector, every AhXh, and a decent amount of QhXh.

Just Check/call turn


AP, obviously check river and hope he checks back. Can consider calling certain sizings, but given your turn line I honestly have no idea what's going on.

Also, 3b pre

Definitely 3! pre. As played x/r flop. As played x/eval turn.
Yeah, pretty much all this. This is a 3b all day from both blinds, but even moreso from the SB. It's like 80-90% from the BB and 100% from the SB. The only time I don't 3b this from the BB is when you're playing super deep and the BTN is really passive postflop.

As played, I think x/c and x/r the flop both have merits. x/r probably slightly better because of the backdoor diamonds. If V has a tendency to overbluff I might lean x/c.

As played, definitely x/eval turn. You were afraid of bloating the flop pre and now you're bloating it when your goal should be to get to showdown at a reasonable investment.

The problem with 2/5NL in this area, as I'm sure you know: Chad Power's crew, of whom I have no idea who they are. Was in a 1/3NL game at MGM this week & I felt 2 were partnering, as 1 stacked off 600 to other without a whimper on a silly play. The winner went to 2/5NL & the loser followed about 1/2hr later.

This was in Charles Town where the 2/5NL is rarely good.

Would be happy to point them out if you ever see me around. I don't have anyone that plays lower than $2/$5 right now and only two people that play $2/$5 and they play way more Fortnite than poker. It's possible two people were partnering, but I have never seen it in all my years of live aside from friends/family soft playing each other.

This is Chad? If so, I'll take you up on your offer. However, I'm told you have numerous players that you've schooled since moving to LIVE & that you have the games covered almost 24/7. Or is that you're only bankrolling those still living in the house?

In reference to partnering: I am talking about the simple agreement of rebating any money one wins from the other in a pot.
