Re: Doug Polk's Youtube Videos Thread

So other than literally the strongest hand in our range, what hand would you choose to call with? Even have a blocker to AA and QQ. Just gonna fold 100% of our hands to a shove because we believe he won't ever shove worse for value and is never bluffing?

Thatís the idea yes. Tbh the more I think about it the more I think itís not terrible, especially if the read that he doesnít 3bet 99 is true.
Still not folding myself in a million years lol.

Re: Doug Polk's Youtube Videos Thread

Ok, then why show the AQ when you make the fold?

Who the **** wants to be known to fold that?

The downside to soul reads is that afterwards everybody knows you are a punk that will fold to a spaz shove.

Also, if the BB can only call a value bet with AA then why value bet?

If she checked it and showed a losing full house, THEN she would be godmode.

Re: Doug Polk's Youtube Videos Thread

Why does she have to call if she knew she was beat, this isn’t some online Mtt for 22$

Obv she had some tell that said he was super strong aa or kk and she made the hero fold, good for her

no one ever has to make any call. you can open muck AA if you have a tell that someone has KK and a K will hit the flop. doesn't make it the right play though

Re: Doug Polk's Youtube Videos Thread

it’s the right call to fold if u have the worst hand , she obv thought he wasn’t bluffing and he wasn’t, like what hands could he actually have there ? Q9 ? Doesn’t seem to crazy to me, esp if she was playing with him several hours or days and never saw him bluff

she beats part of his value range...like KQ. even if he's never bluffing it's a snap

To be fair, could easily play days with a reasonable player live and never get to see a bluff, just due to low number of hands/amount of hands that get shown down
