It's unbelievable that 5/10 reg can play a hand this way. Have you noticed an inclination of people when tables break down to spazz out more?
What would you do if a flush hit on the river?
I would check since that's exactly what I put him on when he b/c the turn and believe said that in the video. Maybe in a HU math vs another HU reg it would be standard to bet river even if flush hits I'm not HU expert so leave that to FWF. But I think in ring games it's standard to not bet here when flush hits since the way villain played the hand is inconsistent with 1 pair hands and he may not even call the river with TP.
I see these type of plays fairly often at all stakes from people because they are most likely confused. They bet small and got raises so they level themselves into thinking their hand is "under repped" and people will try to bluff them. They don't want to fold because its "exploitable" and looks "too weak" so they call out of confusion. They're so worried about being "unexploitable" and that they forgot to consider the fact Q high can't win at showdown even vs other person's bluffs.
Good portion of DC posts are about villains who does these kind of things and spiked on the river.
Awesome video looking forward to some more.
So on the AT hand what sort of cards do you think would be better for jamming on the river with. Club? maybe a 4,5 or 6?
I think jamming the river is terrible on any card given my assumptions to call flop and turn.
I'm interested in your 2.5x blind battle steal. I've had the same thoughts about 2xing and 2.5xing, but I've never actually experimented. If you've ever done this type of filter in your HEM DB, do you have a sense of your sb steal success rate when making it:
If there's no serious drop-off in the success rate with 2x compared to 3x+, then I'd seriously consider making this my standard. Please also note if there might be some sample bias in the above (for example, if you use HEM's multi-table stat and often 2x vs. 10+-tablers, but 3x vs. 4-tablers).
