bottom right table,the A8 hand
are u calling a triple barrel?
u said you arent folding A8 to a double barrel because of the strength of the hand but aint it a bluffcatcher?
the point i want to make is whats the difference between QJ and A8 when he is not vbetting worse aces,except that Ax blocks some of his value combos...
if u had AJ,would u consider flatting flop against this opponent ?
forgive me if i missed it, but what are your thoughts on this player? i can see the raise working in the sense that most people are not comfortable doing much in response this deep, since they are not comfortable following thin reads for lots of BBs.
you also have basically the worst hand in your range, which you have said is a good metric for deciding when to bluff. i understand that you can represent a lot of turns anyway, but still, this hand is close to a 0equity semibluff.
that aside, since you seem to say after the hand you aren't sure about it, what do you think of his turn play?
For the hand you replayed where you had AJss...if you had AJdd or AJ off would you bet the turn with the intention of triple barreling? If they check raise the turn I feel like they almost always have KJ or a two pair hand that they want to get value from/don't want to see an ugly river with and we can happily fold our 8 (at best) outer. When they check/call...they usually have a KQ/QJ/JT type hand which will call once on the turn then shut down if it bricks off and they get shoved on
I am not playing a lot 6max, so I hope my question does not look to stupid.
It is regarding the 55 hand. Isn't it that bad to c-bet this board, just alone because of the
board texture? Are we not repping Ax much better than him? Sure, we often have already the best
hand, but aren't we opening the door from him to bluff us out of this pot if we do not c-bet? Very curious about this spot in ring games, because in husngs standard play would be to flat pre (at least deeper stacked, and jamming shorter stacked) oop with 55 a lot, but the polarized range we 3-bet in this games we are going to c-bet close to 100% of all A high boards.
Is this a major difference in those two games?
