Re: ****May LC Thread****NSFW

hand 1 looks borderline preflop but defendable if you have some decent postflop reads
hand 2 i probably defend vs > 50% of the field; or shove obv

and tgsm: try adapting your minraise/3bb's preflop to different opponents; minraising is good vs a lot of specific villains, but so is raising to 3bb's
it just depends how your opponent plays

I assume is better to minraise light 3 bettors and people who folds too much his BB regardless of the size of the raise, and 3xing or more good hands when he is a calling station and cannot fold **** OOP for even 5x pre and limping the rest of our range

Is this ok?

It seriously shocks me how many really really really really bad players there still are in the $100s and $200s.

One guy I played last night literally called a donk lead on a TT2 flop, and then raise/called a shove on a 5 turn with 97o, no draw, 9 high.

Guess he figured he had overs? lol

Funny enough I tried a super low variance style today. I never bluffed (apart from cbetting dry flops ofc), and only value bet. Seems like you really don't have to bluff to beat those stakes.

And there's DEFINITELY a trend that Germans run ridiculous bluffs...not trying to be racist, but some of them are nuts.

you mean "nationalist".

it's def best way to play ABC game in low stakes, sick bluffs against player who are willing to call whole streets with bottom pair on three flush boards ain't gonna work.

yeah just experiment with it a little imo
perfect world:
-villain plays 3bet or fold preflop; in this case minraising is the ONLY thing you can do since your risk/reward goes up a ton
-villain calls 90% of holdings preflop, fold 5% and reraise 5%; in this case, tighten up your range a little and go to 3bb's preflop; you can indeed start limping some hands if he's not aggro vs limps

and all things in between just mix it up/experiment/whatever it's no exact science, just go with the flow and see how things develop
