No, I don't have the roll and I don't think I am +EV in mtts, if I were beating 200z and had a solid roll I would play just for fun though. I like the way mtts are despite hating to gamble haha

Wait, didn't I see you posting in some thread a few days ago, about how smart players always use a 100bi BRM and never take shots with 30bi even if the games are super soft?

I said "less than 30 bi" and I have it. I avoid playing with less than that in any stake I play, just look at 100z: I took shots in there with 40-50bi only.

200z was insane in that day too, 28 people in the pool, 3 major whales and I marked more 2 after the session, the pool was so small that I was playing 3-4 handed. I've played 200z with 25bi this year though, but it's hard to always follow your plan, specially when you are overconfident or tilted.

But at least I snap quit the session after my spew hand and the game was still insane. Also it's not like I will end up playing 200z in bad lineups all day like I did last year, I know it's not my place yet.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

Had a very sick pio session today, ran a sim I think few people got an idea on how to make and what to look for! Learning a lot!

I like my play btw, OTT it's hard to find bluffs unless I'm turning KT/JT/KQ/JQ into a bluff, but I prefer just x back with those, so gotta use my small pairs in there. I think despite this looking insanely spewy, I'm not overbluffing in this spot.

H5: spewy play vs whale, I'm testing those plays vs them, I think they spazz out so much on these boards, so if I had some equity I'm just shipping. He was folding almost 0 hands vs the small sizing on every scenario and very few folds OTT too, so my guess would be that he overprotected his calling range with pairs and raise bluffed air, the reason why he could be overdefending that much.

Or it could be variance lol.

Deservedly stacked on this one haha, but still will keep testing plays vs whales, vs this one (and this sizing) it was the wrong play.

Re: rapidesh123, the legend is back

H1: v good

H2: fine I think, although I see less bluffs bvsb now bc no one folds anything

H3: yeah this sucks, against a reg I just puke fold but it obviously isn’t that big of a mistake to call

H4: just give up on turn, although these are all obv low freq we can spike a 2, and still can show down against 67/78/89

H5: we want a little more equity than this for this play, can also raise less if you think they are getting OOL

**fwiw I don’t really think whales spazz here that much, and even if they do, we print off their spazz by having value when they do, not by spazzing back at them

If you're bluffing all pocket pairs there, you're probably overbluffing by like 400%. I hope you realize that.
The play is ok though.

These lines are costing you a lot of money imo. They are far from GTO and you keep making them way too often. Do you ever value bet like this?
Seriously, do some math on these spots.

Why hand 1 you called flop instead check raise ? At NL texas I see most players are calling very light on flop to make moves on later streets (and to realize equity) instead going for check/raise bluffs. I noticed this lurking high stakes thread 5k + tables they are playing with ck/call flops too .

In my opinion this KJ it is perfect spot to ck/raise flop and bet every club on turn and every 9, T, K, A. Why c/c is better than c/r ?

Hand 4 wtf thats terrible . Sometimes I spazz like that too but **** thats really bad this remember myself on tilt **** go min raise your mother IM ALL IN!!! As Oladipo said **fwiw I don’t really think whales spazz here that much, and even if they do, we print off their spazz by having value when they do, not by spazzing back at them.

Edit: I do not think doing all in with gut shot is that bad. This hand above A2clubs I like. 7outs against top pair and very dry board with decent fold equity. On K95 flush draw board with naked gut shot it is major spew.

KJ is a mix, but since I expect people to play back vs my x/r lighter otf I prefer x/c almost always. But it is supposed to be x/c more than x/r

H4 isn't a spew, most people can't find bluffs on that runnout, so villain can't safely fold Ax otr knowing he is never good vs us.

When I wrote hand 4, I meant hand 5. The hand you went all in on flop with QT on K95 .

Hand 4 I agree its good do that once in a while .

I'm making lots of spewy plays that are very strong vs population, specially those whales, from time to time I will make some horrible plays like h5, but overall I think that it's a bigger spew to give credit to those guys who are out of line all day in most spots and never fight back vs them.
