The fact of the matter is that its an underutilized and highly +EV move.
IMO flop overbets are the best time to do it since you'll get the most calls in a small pot. That sets you up to bet reasonably for the next two streets since you've already plumped up the pot as a baby.

Re: ****Concept of the Week" Schedule and Table of Contents****

Hmm what about a COTW which says when the right time is to 1/4 pot bet, 1/2 pot bet, 3/4 pot bet, pot-size bet and even *GASP* min bet!

I'm kind sick of 3/4 pot size betting and pot betting.

I could do one on betsizing. Been playing around with that a bunch lately and think I could write a decent post on it. Send me a pm though since I don't regularly read this thread.

Re: ****Concept of the Week" Schedule and Table of Contents****

Sorry I have not been keeping up with this thread. I've been super busy in the last few weeks.

If you have an idea for a cotw, or you have sent me a PM in the last few weeks regarding a PM, or if you have any CotW concerns, get in touch with KurtSF. He's going to clean up the schedule, extend it out into the future, and generally handle this thread for the next few weeks while I finish up some big projects that have been keeping me from keeping this thread current.

Re: ****Concept of the Week" Schedule and Table of Contents****

Has one been written on The Micro Mindset, or something of that nature.

I'm talking about how a lot of new micro players want to "mix up their play" or they "Do best against higher level thinkers" or "ABC poker isn't poker, i want to bluff 63o on the river, that's poker"

Something about how maximizing value is prime goal of poker, not making fancy plays, or attaining 5th level metagame unnecessarily.

maybe a cotw on "polarising ranges" might be a good idea.

seems i am doing lately and do not even know that i am doing it
i think it can be usefull as of NL25 upwards.

Kurt, how about a COTW regarding 'balancing your range?' Everyone throws that term around a lot but I would love to have more insight on that subject. I am not qualified to start the discussion though.

Just wanted to let the world know that my topic sounds really manly. Damn.

+1 to polarizing ranges, when to do it, when not to, playing against polar ranges, would be an awesome cotw imo.

and this. balanced ranges are not really too necessary at the micro limits because players have such gaping holes in their game that you can play a very exploitable style and still make tons of profit because people wont exploit you very often. there has been only a very select handful of times i can remember a reg calling me down super light(bluffcatching ldo) because it was obvious my range was super polarized. anyway i still think it would be a great idea to discuss when to polarize, when to balance and against whom etc etc. there is a good thread on the subject if you guys are interested https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/32...-range-652990/

I don't think we need to find more and more specialized subjects for the COTW, and do believe that at this point adding articles on fundamental subjects would be beneficial - this is still uNL after all. As such I'm generally in support of the idea.

Are you interested in writing it? Can you refine the idea any more so I can put it on the schedule? Feel free to follow up in PM.

This is a pretty specialized topic, and a pretty broad one too. Could be tough to write, but if others are interested it could be good.

Uh, yeah. I thought an article with the under-title "how to take money from your friends" would be fun, but my guest author went and got banned, so the slot is now open.

I suppose I'm a prime candidate for authoring this one, as I'm pretty sure I'm one of the few folks in these parts who doesn't think balancing your range in the micros is, well, pointless. I could call it "How to be 0EV like me!"

I would like some more opinions on this subject, and if anyone else is interested in writing it.

Yeah, zachvac wants to do it too, but we're still hashing out the details of what exactly the topic is. Once we have the boundaries of the concept nailed down I'll post a title.

Are you guys thinking more "how to polarize your range", or "how to identify and play against polarized ranges"? Or both?

Do I see any hands for authoring it?




OK, as of right now the schedule is firm through April 19th. You might see things shifting around a bit after that as these ideas gets solidified. We are always looking for ideas and authors!

hm, i was thinking more in the second area.

how to identify a polarised range (i can assume it depends on board texture, villain), i think when i know this i can apply the how-to (or rather the not how-to).

eg1. Hero opens UTG; BU (Tag) Calls; Board A77r; Hero CB; BU Raises
(imo his range here is polarise towards air, there is nothing he can represent)

eg2. 3/4Bet in the standard LP/Blind wars

and is there a point to polarise your range ever?
