yea i d be 3b the sb much more frequently with this hand. i think i had a reason for flatting maybe a tigh Co range and a high foldv3b in which case i think AJ is too strong to chuck into a polar 3b range.

say i have T9dd in that spot. pretty sure i lead turn and when called can well go for the checkraise with that. ppl checking back this flop basically always have QQ or Kx as nobody really check Ax or sets/2p/flush here. i think a K will oftentimes valuebet itself. so imo this line is maximizing value and thr ev of our bluffs too.

i mean if i have 77 potentially 88 and any flush in my range i m pretty sure i would play it like this.

wrt what i rep, i agree i dont have tooo much in the way of better. 77 being pretty much the only boat, QJdd QTdd JTdd T9dd (J9dd T8dd 98dd 65dd) the only flushes i have, the bracket being the more unlikely ones. but i think in most cases this reg with a pretty high fold v 3b etc is gonna turn out to be a tag that has the habit of never being willing to payoff. so while i rly only rep 7 combos he will convince himself i dont bluff like this i always call my Ax etcetc.

as for betting again, i rly dont see anything the guy can potentially call me with that i beat once flop goes check check. more likely he turns some kinda weak pair into a bluff than hve Ax letalone call a big bet with that. i think its a pretty decent spot to go for xr for both valueand bluff and xf most of our total air so that we dont burn ourselves by just always bluffing here

Yeah in my games I would expect a lot of people to xback Axs on the flop, so AJ is a thinnish but okay vbet on the river. If you can't vbet it I can see some merit to your line, but yeah I still think overbetting all my bluffs and nuts on the river is better.

100% if ppl check back Ax sure cuz suddenly you look really bluffy and could potentially bluff so many different parts of your range. but here i was pretty sure the only Ax this guy would check back on this texture if any beat me too. but i rly doubt he checks Ax here which basically polarizes his flop range to Kx or maybe like QQd and total air

payed some deep HU with theproksa today at nanostakes just to feel it out and have some fun learning experience. tbh i enjoyed it quite a bit altho he came out the winner in that 2 hour match. looking forward to playing him* some more

Spoiler:
*him= crazy spazztard


played a decent session after that at 25deep and 50red and decided to drop the deep tables again because i find it quite hard to switch back and forth between the two. i m deffo gonna play some deep at some point in the near future but that will be only deep tables and really 100% Agame and focus on playing deep.

today:

tables werent as good after midnight so i only played two sessions and watched a movie (Once were Warriors, NZ movie from 1994- Awesome acting and pretty deep thought provoking story, just horrible directing imo) and played two shortish sessions today in total (3hrs total) then did another 4 hrs of strat and gonna make a vid for a student. gonna go bouldering tomorrow so might be an off day not sure.

ran decent today.

Once were warriors - Great movie, I haven't seen it in years, I must watch it again.


I see you have been playing deep tables sometimes. How do you find them v normal?
I played some 10 deep tables yesterday and found them better than the regular. I am wondering whether to stick at them for a while oris it counter-productive if it affects your game when you return to regular.

Well there's aggressive and then there s crazy. I think crazy is easier to adjust to.

Failed hard yday. Went bouldering which I thought would be gd for my back which has been giving me trouble since I don't have a desk at the place I m staying at. Bouldering was fun but my back is a big mess now. Got two more weeks to survive this situation so I guess I ll toughen up and go thru with it but it's not fun.

So I decided to take it easy and try and fix my sleep schedule. Got some weed to help me fall asleep earlier aaaaaand... Didn't. Ended up autopiloting a 4hr session playing ridiculously bad and dropping $200 mostly due to spew. Fell asleep at 8am Lol.

Rostockod half that today in a quick session an got some rl stuff to do now so not sure when I ll grind again today. The sleep schedule issue remains for now...

I'm surprised the weed didn't help you go to sleep. It works wonders for me. I've stopped doing it during the week though, cause it was starting to f with my brain. Messing **** up at work and overall kinda lathargic about doing anything at work.

As far as your back goes, I read something in the "most baller setup" thread of a guy who has a desk that can lift up, so that he can stand while playing poker. Says its good for his back. Maybe give that a try.

Oh, and don't play high.

Change of subject.

I'm interested to know what you think about setmining in a 3b pot, 3 way action. A guy posted a thread asking if he shoved his set too soon, essentially missing value. He was being told by multiple people that his call was -EV. How is this ever a -EV call?

BTN: $5 (100 bb)
SB: $5 (100 bb)
BB: $4.70 (94 bb)
UTG+1: $2 (40 bb)
UTG+2: $4.08 (81.6 bb)
MP1: $2.14 (42.8 bb)
Hero (MP2): $9.49 (189.8 bb)
MP3: $5.76 (115.2 bb)
CO: $2.16 (43.2 bb)

Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 4 4
UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 raises to $0.15, MP1 folds, Hero calls $0.15, 3 folds, SB raises to $0.55, BB calls $0.50, UTG+2 folds, Hero calls $0.40

Flop: ($1.80) 8 4 2 (3 players)
SB bets $1.40, BB calls $1.40, Hero raises to $8.94 and is all-in, SB calls $3.05 and is all-in, BB folds

Turn: ($12.10) J (2 players, 2 are all-in)
River: ($12.10) Q (2 players, 2 are all-in)

I work now and still smoke, I've also been a poker player and smoked. Like any substance, it has a different effect on everyone, so your mileage may vary. The thing I noticed when I didn't have a normal job was I'd be smoking all day long which def saps your motivation and productivity levels. I now notice that if I hold off until late in the evening, once I've done everything I need to do, it's a very therapeutic experience.
