Hi all,

2/5, V is very loose and can have propensity to bluff. V limps HJ, hero raises AQo $25 in SB $250 eff. Heads up.

Flop ($50): 256r. Hero $20, call.

Turn ($90): Ah (no flush draw). Hero $55, V calls.

River: (200): Td. Hero jams last $150 or so.

Thanks,
DT

Thanks …what it’s like is to be on a 1.5 month break even stretch/downswing losing your mind being very card dead and trying to make money with what you’re given. It sucks! I wasn’t even sure I played this hand right I’ve been losing so much.

I would lean x flop but other than that this looks completely standard.

Should mix between c-bets and checks on the flop. It is such a dead flop that no pair is giving up and your stack is short. Turn is obvious bet when you make TPGK. River should be check to induce occasionally against a villain who bluffs too often. You played it fine but it's a common situation where hero should not take the same line every time.
Once you make TPGK on the turn with SPR of 1.5 your committed on such a dead board. Against a nitty opponent you might be concerned that opponent didn't fold turn but with less then a pot sized bet left it's too late to worry.

Coming from an ex plo player i can confirm to you that plo is a lot more insane than holdem. Been playing holdem only for the past 6 months and i laugh at the variance compared to the plo5 plo6 games i used to play. Like people who complain about running bad in holdem have no **** idea lolll


Otth , pretty std spot nh, i see you overfold a lot dumbo in holdem, is this because of your previous plo5 experience ?

I used to auto cbet and lost a lot of money. Now, I am always looking to reasons not to c-bet. In this hand, with two over-cards, you definitely do have a reason to c-bet. Nonetheless, I would agree you should check the flop some of the time because you don't have any straight or flush draws.

I would check the river. I see few hands that call your all-in that you beat. As Quadj wrote, a check can induce a bluff.

Check flop seems best… only if u plan to check call.


As played it’s a snap especially against the described V

Don't bet flop especially against a limper. Fine other than that. Don't check like some others suggested. You will see plenty of A high floats and hands that can hero call your river shove that will monkey check back if you check.
