Re: No-Limit Hold ’em For Advanced Players by Matthew Janda Reviews and discussion

Hi Matthew, I really like this book. This one is quite more readable than the first one.

I also watched some of your cardrunners videos in Youtube and they help. But sadly CR was shutdown and I cannot find any new videos (since 2016). Do you have any plan to release your old videos somewhere? And did you make more videos after CR shutdown?

Thanks.

Unfortunately, CardRunners owns/owned the videos and while they originally planned to release videos on youtube, I believe that plan has mostly been scrapped. I haven't produced any video content since Cardrunners.

Re: C betting Strategy from the SB

Hi Matt, great book, it has helped a lot.

Just a quick one. I am trying to improve my small blind play POST FLOP. And I was wondering if the same method you suggest when c betting button vs bb in a single raised pot should be implemented when c betting from the sb after 3betting.

Shall we still bet big with out strong but vulnerable hands, bet small with good but not excellent hands etc etc?

I notice a lot of people now advocate betting entire range for third or quarter pot after 3 betting from the sb.

Any thoughts? Cheers.

I think a lot of this is going to depend heavily on stack depth.

Also, spots someone is recommending betting 1/4 with their entire range may not be the most GTO/+EV strategy, but maybe they think it's still a very good strategy and much more easy to implement than trying to deal with multiple sizes.

I might be able to help you more if you post a specific example.

Re: No-Limit Hold ’em For Advanced Players by Matthew Janda Reviews and discussion

Ok thanks Matt. I will give you two examples. Say its 0.50/1 online 100 bb deep. Button 3x raises to 3 and we 3bet to 12 with all of our range from the sb which is more or less the one you suggest in the book, maybe a little more narrow becasue of the 3x raise.

How would we react on the:
JdQd5c,
A72r,
6d7d8h.

Thanks for getting back to me Matt, you must be busy. Appreciate any further advice for these hand examples.

I would not just auto bet 1/4th of the pot on any of these boards.

On the JdQd5c, I'd probably think about if I want to set up turn overbets with my draws and bet the flop accordingly. Probably expect CR to work a lot here too, since 99% of the time the 3-bet caller has AQ 100% of the time (Mason edited this chapter out).

A72r I would think we want to sometimes go equal fraction of the pot on the flop/turn/river more often since the board is dry and this is the most mathematically effective way to play if our betting range is very polarized. Obviously, it's more complex than just that, but it's what's going through my mind.

6d7d8h is an awful flop when OOP so I'm probably checking a lot.

FWIW, I have no idea what Snowie/PioSOLVER says on any of these, but for the most part I think you need to notice patterns to make the best decisions in real time. So if you think a 1/4 pot bet is best with your whole range on any of these I'd like to hear why.

Re: No-Limit Hold ’em For Advanced Players by Matthew Janda Reviews and discussion

Thanks for the response Matt, I like your thought process on all of them.

So on the JdQd5c would you check raise diamond fd, k10s etc and keep the pressure on the turn? (I do think the c/r is something I under utilise, and most others at my stakes too). If we were to overbet the turn, have we used a small size on the flop or a big size so the turn overbet is a committed one?

I like the way you suggest betting the A72r flop, what bluffs are best here though, suited broadways with back door fd's? And if the board runs dry and are called down, what if any river bluffs do we choose? This is the only flop I think maybe betting 1/4 pot with our entire range might be best because it is so dry and hard for our opponent to have much? Am I wrong in that thinking? Because it is polarized do we need to bet big or go home?!

Thanks again mate, its really kind of you.

There are tons of mixed strategies. You may sometimes bet KT, sometimes c/c it, sometimes c/r it in theory, whereas in reality one line will usually be better.

I avoid putting lots of money into the pot then having to fold high equity hands like the plague when possible, even if doing so would be part of a GTO strat. In reality my opponent doesn't know my game so I'm not going to put tons of money into the pot with a flush draw where I'm still reasonably likely going to have to fold in the case my opponent goes all-in. So I'm more likely to overbet jam AI with these hands, and would only put myself in a position where I'll bet/fold with a flush draw in a 3-bet pot if I think it's' very unlikely I'll get raised (otherwise I'd have taken other lines, overbet AI myself, or CRAI or something like that).

Best bluffs on the A72r board are going to be your typical go to bluffs (suited connectors etc). Mixed bet sizings will be best on the A72r board (as they pretty much always are). There are times betting 1/4 pot with most of your range is best and I know the arguments for it, but I would not blindly follow betting 1/4 pot with your whole range unless you understand the logic behind that play well and agree with it. Otherwise I would recommend YOU do what YOU think is best, not what you saw a sick NL$5000 player do in a video without understanding why he did what he did.

Re: No-Limit Hold ’em For Advanced Players by Matthew Janda Reviews and discussion

Thanks for all this Matt, it has really helped. If i could bother you again? I have another query.

You say in the book about having draws or non made hands etc in both big and small bet ranges. How would you decide which draws are bet with each bet size. For example would it be a good idea to bet small fd and bdfd big and big ones small? Should we just randomize straight draws? And what should I be thinking taking the hand and my range onto the turn?

Taking three flops from the book and your opening ranges what are your thoughts?

-8d7d2c
-Jd9d6c

This is discussed in more detail in the book, so there's no really point in trying to discuss it here in worse detail with no Mason editing.

Long story short, I'm into patterns, and I haven't seen clear patterns for which flush draws go into the big betting range, which flush draws go into the small betting range, and which ones get checked back (assuming you split your range into big bets/small bets/checks in a given spot).

Re: No-Limit Hold ’em For Advanced Players by Matthew Janda Reviews and discussion

Thanks for the help dude. Sorry about that last question, I went through the thread and know you have answered it a few times.

There is one more thing I think you are the man to answer for me. It may seem a little beginner but it is a few questions on opening ranges.

Why are snowies ranges so much tighter? ( I kind of know this but I think you could explain to me clearly)

Why do 99% of people ignore them and open much wider?

Are we just assuming we have skill advantage?

Like I said I know its a bit back to basics but if you could give me your thoughts?

Opening hands is fun and I always assume I am much better than the average player at the table I'm at (or I'd be highly -EV after rake). I imagine most poker players think the same.

Re: No-Limit Hold ’em For Advanced Players by Matthew Janda Reviews and discussion

Once you go past premiums the difference in ev between hands becomes more and more marginal. Thus you only need a slight skill advantage to open significantly wider than equilibrium. Like people behind you 3betting 20% less than they should would allow you to widen RFI range a lot. This effect is compounded the closer you get to the button.
