yeah i see that shoving is the best plan to induce a hero call but i'd just be a bit worried that he's trapping, you've got such good odds preflop and on the flop that he might well expect you to have a lot of floats that he doesn't want to fold out with his premiums by betting the turn, but as you say i suppose it comes dwon to the specific villain.

Let's say that if you plan to check turn with the intention to check-down-river or fold to a bet, then I'm not sure you should call pre/flop. Prob folding pre would be the more common move (prob even not 4bet cold if I think about it ), and it's totally fine, but if you take the uncommon line then you have to give it your best shot

Just noticed that UTG min raised. Then it is a call or sqz. If you make it 120. It has to work ( 110/110+55 = 0,66) 66% of the time to show immediately profit. Will UTG fold enough of his range ? Flat caller will.

Tightis 16% UTG open range: AA-22,AKo-AJo,KQo,AKs-A2s,KQs-KTs,QJs,JTs,T9s,98s,87s,76s,65s

If he only continues with AA-TT,AKo-AQo,AKs-AJs,KQs. Then it is really close. If he opens wider than 16% because he is min raising then 3betting is even better.

If I just called pre I do not have a very sound strategy vs regs with my whole range. There is probably two balanced strategies in this spot.

A) CR 99/88/33 ( 9combos ) and AJcc-A2cc ( 10combos ). Bet half pot on blanks. Re-evaluate river. Check sets on turn. Check X amount of the time Axcc ( maybe all the time ? )
B) CC 99/88/33/AJcc-A2cc. Same turn. Allows you to CC TT aswell. No need to balance because of mid pairs or weak tps cause I fold them pre vs std size UTG open. Vs min raise then this line protects them better.

Bottom line play your AJcc-A2cc in the same way you would play your sets. I am going to use plan B. Not balancing just because of balance. But because it has value in it vs regs.
I Used to be a math-poker-guy, nowadays I feel that once you know the basic stuff, you shouldn't let exact-calculations to interfere with your decision making on various board textures and vs various opponents...

Let's take the 33 hand as a good example. You asked what's my "3bet raising range on this flop", and I can honestly answer that I don't have a "range". It's way more dependant on sizing tells, timing tells, and different opponent types. For exaple - If Schmeff opens from UTG, LostToRiver calls from LP, the same flop comes, the same action happens, then I would prob 3bet-raise my A9dd for value with the intention to get it in vs either one of them (and prob get it in GOOD ). Hope I succeeded in explaining myself...

It is funny cause I don't consider myself a math guy at all. I have trouble with all the basic stuff to begin with. I try to get better at it because I think it would help my game alot. Like combinatorics. It helps in abcense of solid reads. Vs unknowns. First level thinking is that the villain can have 99/88/33/89 for value when he craises the flop. Second level is how many combos is that ? Combos help in various situations. While bluff catching. Thinking about your own range if you want/need to be balanced etc.

Top of that comes the reads. If you have very solid ones then you can add A9dd to your cr flop value range. I think you always have a range. First you start what with your std one and then you can expand your value range further. Your range is just wider for value now

Nice HH!

I have one question.
For the first hand, why didn't you 3-bet 10s for value against Fish's button open?
Do you usually flat 77-10s from SB against reg's button open? cuz I found them kinda hard to play oop without initiative...

Thanks!

Where is the value in the turn bet ? Bluff ? You have to bet twice to get Kx to fold. And overbet the river to get Ax fold . When he craises what kind of range do you put him on ? Personally I don't have that line in me at all. I cbet all my good hands OTT. Probably should ch some strong hands and cr some aswell vs regs

Don't remeber fish' range exactly, but seemed like his stats were unprofitable for 3bet with TT OOP, and thought schmeff might flat a lot from BB with the knowledge that fish will call third..

I have no problem flatting good hands from blinds, because u will have many chances of taking initiative post-flop when your range is about 7% of hands and their range is around 40% and they miss flop so much..

I bet turn 4 value cause I have tons of fold equity (had the guy on 9 out of 9 fold turn after cbetting flop and checking turn..), and plenty of value to the river (Q,J,T,spade, about 30% to win river). I have no problem checking behind river when I miss and let him have it, for all the tines he folds turn/hero calls river.

Re: Being a 1000NL reg by the end of 2012 [STASIA42]

in a hand where you had set of 44's, if you are villian, would you play A2s hand same as villian did if you would be playing vs someone that plays same as you. So you have A2s on that board and cbet flop and someone with stats as you have raise you, what is your plan?

Thoughts about the line on the turn / river...?

Bet or shove yourself. More combinations of two pair/one pair hands in his range than missed draws that you want to induce from.

Review after flop allready. I have never seen a HH where someone has folded trips there OTT. On the river one reg out of few million might fold. Turn bet is pointless. Unless you have some sick read that he has QJ or that he has total air and is floating. Without it think he has Ax and is never folding.

Prob call flop raise, fold turn. I mean, villain in BU ( ) raise on 2 guys, he can have for value : 35, 22, 44, A4, 42 .

he can have as a semi-bluff: 43ss, 54cc, KQcc, KJcc, KTcc, 56cc, 57cc, 46cc, 43cc etc.

Most of his value hands are crushing our hand.

Most of his semi-bluff hands have at least 30% equity vs our hand + position (which means he can always either check-behind turn and take a free card, or he can bet small turn like I did , and check-behind river when he misses / shove PSB on river when he hits).

Just don't think a call-call-call line here is profitable.

Another way you can play it is to 3bet flop, with the intention to fold to a 4bet , and bet turn/ check-call river if villain just flats our 3bet on flop.

Thought about this hand a lot, and had a big discussion on it at the Israeli forum, my final conclusion is:

Check-Shove >> Bet small to induce-call >> Over-Bet-Shove >> bet 64% .

It seems to me that most of his calling range on turn consists of big draws. It's easy to say he has two-pair with the ace now, but I just never see him call turn with A5/A2/A7 , and AK always bets river here.

Anyway, I think by betting/shoving we make all of his hands to fold (air + weak made hands) and get calls from (AK, AA, KK, 55, 22, 34) of which 3 are stronger than us, and 3 are weaker than us, and all 6 always bet river when checked to, and prob always raise river tinish bet.

Yeah, prob giving up on turn is the best... I thought he will give me the credit because I practically NEVER go for this line with air, but W/E...
