I think that playing random FD as x/c even twice is nice here, because he will never believe in flush after this line. When he checks back F I can fire twice as Qx also. 6h5h is stack off on the flop because after his raise flop with KQ,AQ my pot odds are ok. Sometimes he is capable of folding this hands, so its sweet for us.

Yeah could be a good line. I almost never do this. Don't have any strong ch call range as the original raiser. I cbet 100% in this spot. Maybe not the optimal strategy. Opening from the UTG helps alot though. You get alot more credit. From now on sometimes ch call random FD maybe even QJs/KQ (I don't open any smaller queens). Don't know if this is called balance or what ?

I care about being balanced only with few regs from NL200 so... ; )

Finally! Ive got really good session for my mindset! Everything was played almost perfectly I think.

Ive been little confused after I 5bet shove :/ Its one of the best or even the best player on NL200 currently. He is 4bet 26 and 4,6% of the range from UTG. If I know that he is perfectly playing postflop and Im little scared to play agains him should I always 5bet shove or I just have to call?

    If this isn't in your 5b range, you shouldnt have a 5b range there. Even with AA.

      Most people would too scared to bluff this river or even the turn. How weak his river range actually is ?

      Missed FDs. Ten combos (KQhh/KJ/K9/QJ/Q9/AJ/A9/A6/A4/A3)
      Weak pairs. 26 combos (99/A8hh/K8hh/98/86/A7/K7/97/76/66/A5hh/54hh)

      Top pairs. 51 combos (AT-JT)
      Two pair. 4 combos (T8-87)
      Sets ten combos.
      Straight five combos.

      Do you think he will fold out alot Tx hands on the river ? I think that is what needs to happen for the shove to be + ev.

      I dont remember the villain but you have to know that there is no sets on the river. There is a tendency that people raise sets on the flop or turn. He can call only with KT,AT. Im not tvbeting lower Tx here and I do not bluff cbet 3 times on this type of board (sometimes ;D)

      Month is going great. Weather in my country freaked out. One day is raining cats and dogs and next day we have 30C.

      EURO2012 doesn't help with grinding. A lot of crazy Russians in my city. I dont get people who ride 1000km to destroy others city or fight with the citiziens... Every country from the south is just having fun but not them...

          Yeah it does not matter too much how he plays his sets. They are a very small part of his range anyway. I think comes down to if he snap calls QT/JT/T9 or not. Earlier you said that you really liked your bluff on this board texture. Standard view would say this is a horrible board texture to bluff at. I think it is fine if villain folds some Tx.

          Re: Graduated - Now Let's Create My Life! (NL200)

          Today I passed my last exam! Now I just have to defend Master's thesis. After that all the world stays open for me. I haven't decide yet where to go for the winter. Maybe Malta, maybe Canaries. This thought that I will be totally free makes me a little positive thrill

          What about poker? I think its going fine... Definitely should be better but you no - nobody is perfect.

          Tomorrow I'm going to sport psychologist to work on my concentration and few other things. He worked with other poker players and made their emotions really stable. That's what I need. It's not cheap because it's 100$/1,5h I think it's worth this amount.

          I've got sth for you Can anybody tell me positives of raising this river?

              You can try out to fold out a chop or if you are really tricky try to induce some madness if you are sure he does not have a flush. But I think he shows up with a flush here quite often thou. 8 combos of Ax of could play the hand this way (AT/A9/A8/A7/A6/A5/A4/A2). I expect hands like 98hh to bet the turn. I don't think ever shows up with a small sc that made a flush.

              Call>>>>>>> raise because of the Axhh combos he could have.

              The most intresting question to me is that should auto cbet A2hh OTT if we were the villain ?

              Pros for betting :

              - We probably have the best hand. To get value out of KQ/QT/KJ/JT/FDs/SDs
              - I bet this turn close to 100% of the time with my air. Should bet when we have something aswell.
              - Ch defines our range alot more. By betting we are tougher to play againts.
              - If we bet we still have the option to shove river. Pot is bigger when we hit or when bluff shove river. Building implied odds for both OTT
              - Checking A2hh is not guaranteed to induce anything.
              - No need to balance cf line here at all. Not going to be cfolding in this spot too much at all. Going to be pretty strong here raising from the HIJ. The times I cf it's fine.

              I changed my mind he probably does not have Axhh combos OTR. So go ahead bluff out the chop or induce

              I think we should. Villains range after calling this flop i pretty weak so bet/bet/bet

              It's interesting that you think this way. Firstly I will probably never have pure air on this T - because I would fold/raise this on flop
              Secondly this type of player (good reg) will never cbet and x/fold on this type of board. So betting T with middle value range is wrong.

              I disagree one more time If I know that he is never x/folding this T card I don't bet draws and middle value range. For sure we dont have top range but who cares... He is not able to make me fold either

              But what for? I don't have to change my hands into a bluff if he is cbetting depolarized.

              I dont raise/call this river ever. But percentage of time he will bluff catch me is enough to make this EV+.

              There is one another VERY important reason to raise this R. I can make other Tx fold

              You don't have hard time playing some rivers with Ace no kicker ? Kd/Tc/7s or even blanks. Ez value shove most of the time ?

              I was talking as the original raiser . In position if you bet you have bet twice. Turn your hand into a bluff. In theory he should call the turn 100% of the time and fold the river 100% of the time on blanks because his range is capped to weak one pair hands (Ax/KK/KQ). EV of betting twice versus checking back and playing the river IP. Don't know which is better. I am always tempted to turn hands into bluff cause I am a monkey. It is true that villain is in ch call mode when he checks this turn. If he had pure air he would bet this scare card. My air is draws on this turn. Do you raise draws on the flop ?

              Wheather you check the turn IP or OOP I think it defines your range as weak. What does it mean to both parties or does it even matter is tougher question. Should it be exploited always when you see this happening and you think villain is not balanced ? Or just play your hand which is middle pair in this spot and check back ? Tough questions in which I don't know the answers to

              Yes IP just snap call 3rd pair if you think he is polarized and bluffing enough. Was talking about why we should cbet the turn with A2hh. One of the points was that we still had the option to shove river to make our tripple barrel complete. For value or needs to be a bluff.

              There is one another VERY important reason to raise this R. I can make other Tx fold
              What bluff catchers exactly ? Why would he ever donk any of them ? Any pairs really. Anything less than a straight.
