I noticed you auto click fold Q4s on button. Can we open up this hand if its folded to us?
also auto-folded J8o on button 15:15 and again at 16:05... i think you auto-fold too many buttons. do you think it might be better never to auto-fold any buttons?
Oh, man. Really wish I'd known that guy was peachy keen earlier .
I would definitely 4-bet if it's folded to me. Since I flatted the original PFR, my value 4-bet range is just really narrow there and IIRC he'd been 3-betting a lot and I'd already 4-bet him at least once, so he can definitely decide to ship light.
Thanks. Glad you like it!
hurt + gold,
Yeah, those are both sorta close, IMHO. I'm def opening both of them if there's a limper in front so I guess that means I shouldn't click autofold if I wanna play perfectly. I think they're folds if it folds to me with decent players in the blinds and opens if it folds to me with nitty players in the blinds or fish who don't 3-bet much. Not sure where exactly the cutoff is.
I guess I should also say that I don't try to play perfectly with little spots like that in my videos. If I have nothing to talk about, I'll open a little light to keep you guys entertained, and if I'm in the middle of a sentence, I'll muck something close so I'm not distracted while I talk to you.
Just a few things:
1) I know its mostly preference, but why are you opening to pot OTB?
2) On the TT vs AQ hand, if you think your turn bet is 'committing' - why not bet smaller and leave yourself FE on a river shove?
On a board this dry, his calling range is static anyway.
Clealry mufazza wasn't thinking enough - but i'd think we'd want to leave a little more FE on the turn with air if we decided to b/b/b.
Aslo entertaining to watch u treat Liu as some rando red pro haha.
lol. I'll keep that in mind....
1) TBH, I'm just lazy on FTP cause they have a pot button. I think in reality I should be potting it OTB when the players behind don't 3-bet much (or when they call a lot) and then lowering my raise size the more they 3-bet. But on FTP it's just too easy to mash pot, so that's what I end up doing .
There are sweat videos of me playing on Stars in which I do this.
2) I don't have air here so I don't want FE on a river shove. What I do here with air has nothing to do with what I do here with a made hand unless my opponent knows exactly how I play. Even then, I'd rather level him than worry about balancing.
Does that make sense.
"Aslo entertaining to watch u treat Liu as some rando red pro haha."
Yeah... oops .
Glad you liked the video.
I think this is even a c-bet with total air. It's easy to overestimate how often we get called or raised here. Very rough math:
Villain probably calls pre with like 300 combos (and 3-bets like 130ish).
I doubt he ever plays back at me with pure air on this board, so we only have to consider the hands that hit this board. Very roughly and always rounding up, there are roughly 55 2 pair or better he'll have here (he 3-bets sometimes with some of it and folds 56o/97o sometimes), like 35 other 9x, 25 8x, 20 7x, 15 or so Tx that I haven't counted already, like 10 6x that I haven't counted already, and like 15 FDs that I haven't already counted.
If we're betting 2/3 pot, we need him to fold 40% of the time for a pure bluff to be good, so we need him to fold 120 combos. With my numbers, he's folding 125, so I've got 5 combos to spare. And of course, that doesn't count the fact that sometimes I win the pot when I'm called by either bluffing or making the best hand.
So, it's close, but I think vs. most players this is a c-bet with total air, actually. It's def a c-bet with A6s.
Could u explain the size of your 4bet? Tim0thee 3bets to 115, you are in position and u 4bet to 285. In position I usually like to make it smaller, because ur range is quite polarized, and people do not tend to call 4bets out of position, even if they get great odds.
Since there are so many aggro 3 betters, i like to add a cheap 4bet bluf in my game
Awesome SN + avatar combo.
Glad you liked the video.
I think 2.5x is pretty standard. I probably should go a bit smaller like 275, but I think if I make it like 260 then I start to get into the territory where he has a profitable call with some speculative hands.
