Re: Difficult turn spot vs Overbet. 3bet pot 25NL

yeah idk those extra straight outs maybe make this a coinflip call
but I wouldn't know what to do when he bets rivers
99 and 88 overbet this way, he shouldn't have 98s,A9s,A8s,A6s but you never know
JTs,KhQh,QhJd,KhJh prob bet this big as well
one more thing that makes me worry about his sizing is that he sets up for a perfect psb river
don't think it's a big mistake to air on the side of caution and fold turn but it's prob a big mistake to call turn call rivers
now about balance and mdf ,don't worry, he doesn't know you're folding an A

Re: Difficult turn spot vs Overbet. 3bet pot 25NL

Do you think shipping turn> then call/call? The gutshot makes me want to call (or shove) and I do think it’s about 50/50 combo wise between sets and combo draws.

Re: Difficult turn spot vs Overbet. 3bet pot 25NL

now that I think about it, good aces could ob turn as well and if he ever shows up with AK/AQ then shipping is not good. I just don't think he folds hands he likes when you ship turn after checking that flop. but idk, interesting spot.

6 combos of sets, 2 combos of 98s, 8 combos AQo plus maybe 4 combos of JTs a QJh as natural bluffs, assuming he doesn't raise the NFD OOP here. Think you peel and fold to river shove

Re: Difficult turn spot vs Overbet. 3bet pot 25NL

Call turn with all your Ax or better (with this hand you have the gutshot as well), and then call river with any 2pr+ or even AK if you sometimes check the flop with that. i.e. If this combo doesn't improve you can fold the river, but you should have other combos that will be pretty simple calls on the river.

Thanks Arty. Whatís your range for Villain here? I canít decide if heís more likely to do this with combo draws or sets/2pair. What do you think about a turn shove?

I think a strong opponent balances nicely between draws and monsters, which makes it a pretty annoying spot*.
Shoving is not part of my turn strategy, but I'm stationy like that. I like playing rivers. Maybe it is OK to cram it, but it wouldn't even cross my mind in-game.

* Snowie used to use lines like this when I trained with it. I lost track of how often I checked the flop with TPTK and it would bomb turn and river with total garbage (not just missed draws, but hands with 0% equity on the turn, like KQdd in this spot). I learned to never fold top pair in 3-bet pots vs aggrobots.

Re: Difficult turn spot vs Overbet. 3bet pot 25NL

I would just fold, it is not a big ev mistake folding but it could potentially be a very big ev mistake shoving or calling. If he's making you fold the best hand this time so be it.

If you notice he starts to overbet in similar spots frequently you can start to change your strategy but in general when I see villains like this overbet it's simply to maximise value

Do you not know about MMSS theorem*?

Every time a thinking microstakes player overbets the pot before the river he's fos.

* hypothesis**

Couldnít I just shove and get the information for sure? Especially since Villain is a reg and Iíll probably play close to at least 10k hands with him.

Also wouldnít you rather have my hand over a hand like AK since I at least have equity vs sets? Whatís the worst hand you call with here.

I don't 3bet A5s here.

You don't really have strong aces on the turn, probably don't have sets bar AA. Villains range just seems a lot better than yours and I'll click fold because I'd be completely lost on the river.

That being said look at your range in this spot and find out where this hand is and whether you need to be calling based on MDF and play around with different ranges for villain to see if it's ever good and how different rivers affect this spot and then fold anyway.

I assume your one of those guys calling with mid pair when I overbet and shove my 2pair+

Worst hand I call here is two pair or a combo draw

Gutshot OTT does add equity but not a lot..

Re: Difficult turn spot vs Overbet. 3bet pot 25NL

Villains pretty much always shoving river here and if we're folding unless we hit two pair or straight its definitely horrendous

Nah I'm one of those weird people that folds to big bets. Bet small on the other hand and I'll call you with all sorts of garbage.

I call AK - I think AQ AJ A10 and A7 are all possible hands that bet like this as well as hands like A6 and 98 etc which you can counterfeit

Definitely think a5 is way lower equity vs his total range even with gutshot equity

When a thinking player overbets the pot, he should have more bluffs than value. More bluffs than value doesn't equal every time. I'm sure myself, Chips, Doodoo and quite a few other regs here can pull up overbetting a bunch of value otf and ott.

Thanks to everyone for pointing out that my jokey post is factually incorrect.

Why should you have more bluffs than value bets when overbetting? As an exploitative measure in some spots, sure but in general I'm pretty sure the more we bet the closer to equal value to bluffs becomes.

What's horrendous to me is underfolding river after overfolding turn. A juicy leak indeed.

because you're laying villain bad odds and he has 1 more street to potentially bluffcatch.

Ojune what's your play here? This is a weird range spot where Villain has more sets then me so I might actually be at a disadvantage.
