We 3bet the A6o oop and now we are cbetting a Q9x flushdraw board.
Don't you think there is more merit in just c/folding than in cbetting?
Basically his whole range for calling a 3bet in position has hit this board.
SC stuff has a pair with the 9 or a flushdraw or at least a gutshot and isn't folding, most broadways have hit a pair or at a gutshot and AK is probably not folding with 2 overcards.
So the only hands we might fold him off are AT/AJ (without a flushdraw) and small pocket pairs.
So he isn't folding to a cbet that often (prolly not often enough to make it profitable) and if we get called we are oop with a crappy hand.
We might still have the best hand when called but we never get our A high to showdown and be good, cause he will stab with something like his KJ if he doesn't hit either on the turn or the river a good percentage of the time.
And our outs aren't that great, cause he might have better Ax in his range plus the A of spades sucks (the only way a 6 might help us is if he has AK, we turn or river the 6 and he checks it down).
And barreling such a board on 50NL in a 3bet pot isn't going to be profitable.
very good concept coming there!
Many players are just in the mood to "fold and wait for a better spot" against a fish, especially on small and micro stakes.
They don't want to push the smaller edges and risk to get the fish stacked by someone else.
Very good picture to have in your mind with the timer.
I would 3bet bigger with the ATo, cause we are oop and our plan is to 3bet, get called a lot and then fold him out with a cbet/get value if we hit and this plan earns us more money if we make it 5,50$ pre, cause we can collect more dead money postflop now and it's easier to get money in if we valuebet.
you shouldn't just always hit pot, kristy.
especially not when he is minraising.
he is getting a very good price on calling in position and with us just 3betting to 6BB the stack to pot ratio isn't that small as it is normally in 3bet pots so his positional advantage is bigger.
I think I'd rather bomb the flop and not bet 3/4 and then bomb the turn, cause of 3 reasons.
1. people are more likely to call flop cbets than 2 barrels
2. a little bit bigger flop bet leads to a much bigger river bet
3. he is a fish and doesn't think about betsizing, so we can make it as big as possible
Think of that:
Pot is 5$.
- We bet 3,5$, he calls, potsize on the turn: 11$, now we bet 11$, potsize on the river: 33$, now we can bet like 30$ and have a pot of 93$ if he calls.
- We bet 5$ on the flop, potsize on the turn: 15$, we bet 14$, potsize on the river: 43, now we can bet 40$ and have a pot of 123$.
So we lose roughly 30BB of value if he calls us down with whatever he has, just because we bet 3BB less on the flop
Great video as always.
In the 99 hand when we were donked on Qxx, you said you would check the turn if we didnt spike our set. How would you play the river if he bets into us? I assume you know how you are going to play since you said you can play "perfect"
The last hand with K9dd on 553 which wasnt discussed, how much do you think is a good betsize on the river with the flush? Starting with 100BB I would usually overbet jam here, but since we are deep I have no clue.
