    It's something that can be easily answered if you think about it. What makes the red line go up? What makes the red line go down? Let me know what you think the changes I made were and i'll give you my input after.

    c/r villain thin valuebet spots
    raising draws vs villain weak range
    double barrel in spots where villain range is weak
    Basically attacking your opponents weak range on particular board textures and maybe 3 betting more against wide steal ranges n 4 bet bluff guys who cant adjust properly

    just my guess

    To be honest,I don't have any idea anymore...
    I tryed lot of things. I can have a positive redline if I play like a mongol with more raising postflop,barreling,overbetting,defending preflop really wide,but then my blue line just dies which keeps me BE at best. After those situations I give up from spewing and start to play again my comfortable game with blue line up and red line sinking.

    Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

    And my last idea about the redline is:
    maybe you started 3betting from the blinds with a wider value/bluff range + you started calling 4bets oop with 3b value hands that aren't good for shoving?
    The other things I already mentioned are: more raising postflop,barreling(bluffing a ton+thin vbetting),overbetting,flatting preflop wide,hero calling.
    Now can you tell me please what it is?

    just my guess
    1) not that significant, unless you were continuously being successful doing it, which is not the case as regs would adjust to your c/r.. & you would also have to follow it up with barrels v high % of the time, couldn't just give up

    2) yeah i like to play draws etc aggressively, so will often c/r flop then barrel away

    3) double barrel yes, but if firing the 2nd, it's pretty important to fire the third two i'd say. imo either fire once or fire 3 times

    4) yeah cold 4bet's and playing high % of pots in position let you be the dictator of the hand, fold 70% or so to 3bets out of position too.

    Hey, sorry just got around to replying. All that really matters is the green line so don't become to obsessed with the red line or anything. I know quite a few very good players (in terms of bb/100 and $ won) who have green and blue high, and red going down. If you are to raise post flop, imo you should fire again alot of the time, which would increase redline if they fold. Triple barreling for sure increases it, especially if it's in a 3bet pot, as normally if 100bb, it results in an all in on the river (so redline cannot ever go down that way). Defending preflop really wide i'd say would have a negative affect on the redline, as you'd be seeing the flop with weaker hands, connecting less, folding more etc and just being weaker on the flop really. If someone you play against is known to bet twice then give up on the turn if called, you could slowplay AA/KK vs them then when checked to just fire/shove , which would increase the redline, but again, the green line is what matters, so if you think you can win more money by 4betting pre as they 5b jam wider than most, or whatever, you should choose that option, although sometimes good to mix it up and balance etc, so when you do call 3bets with weaker hands, villains will have it in their mind that you may have AA

    Regarding me personally, i won't go into that much detail, but i'll say i've played more aggressive and also slowplayed on the flop out of position quite a bit then checkraised the river. Also shoving over river bets in 3b pots has made it rocket too, whether it's been a bluff or a valueshove...

    What hands would you flat against a 30/28/4 3bet 11% Fold to 3b 47% ?

    At what 3bet percentage do you start flat or does it all depend on 4 bet tendencies and postion ?

    Depends alot on position/stack size/post flop play & also fold to 3b 47% is pretty irrelevent stat, would like to know what their fold to 4bet % is... WIthout all this info, can't really give an exact hand range, + it wont always be exact either, depends if I am doing well that session, gameflow etc

    I flat different hands according to position and stack sizes again, will be more inclined to 4bet if they fold to 4b more (with weak hands) and trap with nut hands in diff circumstances..

    Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

    is the guideline for 3 n 4 betting that u 3 bet wide against guys who steal wide n fold to 3 bets n 3bet for value against guys who don't fold to 3bet n flat against guys who 3 bet wide to get them to spew postflop with their weak range. 4 bet guys who fold to 4 bets alot n flat 4 bets against guys who 4 bet alot to get them to spew with their weak range.
