Top Right
You 3-bet a cutoff raiser from the small blind with Q8c and check a wiffed jack-high all-diamond flop.
How often is this check a give-up as opposed to a delayed stab in this precise spot and why?



I definitely bet it sometimes, I just try to bet a little less often on boards like this when I have no equity at all, considering I will frequently have much better hands to barrel with.

Hey Ansky,

Good vid bro. What's your hourly for 4-tabling 2/4? (What would you expect for a player of your calibre if you could 4-table 5/10 regularly inc. rakeback?)

wait on table 1, youre saying that its tough to play a hand like A7s OOP vs 3bet but is 4betting than better vs random players (which cant be true right?) or is it just better because he loves to call 4bets?



it may seem counterintuitive: if putting in $40 OOP here is bad, shouldn't putting in 102 be terrible?

as ansky said, it's a completely different scenario when we 4b. our hand isn't quite versatile enough to take the kind of passive lines we'd want to be able to take OOP if we flatted. however, it will flop enough equity to barrel and also present opportunities to make pure bluffs if we 4bet - opportunities that will be rarer and harder to produce when we are OOP.

Not much, I rarely play less than 8-10 tables, and usually play more if I can.

It's not exactly for value, it's not exactly a bluff either. Vs players who rarely call 4bets, but will just fold or 5bet a lot, it probably is ok to be more depolarized. Especially if they are folding or 5 betting, then something like K4o is basically the same as A7s (assuming we are folding if they 5bet). When they call a ton you need to depolarize and have somewhat higher value standards to 4bet. I'll still fflat his 3bets with a lot of hands though anyway, since like we said he is a very high % 3bettor.




Wow sorry meant to say POLARIZED here not depolarized.

table 4 TT: are you also checking 88 back for inducing weird moves from him? Because there are now a lot of overcard combo's who have 6 outs instead of 3.

Fish in the bb makes it close, but I don't think JTo is quite good enough. This isn't something I am certain of, just a feeling. You might be right, but if you are i suspect it's very close either way.

The lower the pair the more likely I am to bet, but I don't think betting 88 vs a guy who maybe is a fish is 100% necessary. Some fish will just auto bet the turn in this spot so you can check even some vulnerable hands. I'd still tend to bet the lower pairs more than the big ones.
