- deciding when leaving the table is +EV ( both in winning and losing situations).
Quitting is an interesting thing. You aren't obligated to play anyone for any period of time. If at any point you don't feel comfortable at any time, quitting is perfectly fine. However, if you're playing a reg or someone competent giving them a 5/10/15 min warning before you go is polite.
If start a match down a few buyin's it might be a good idea to just quit your opponent, even if you feel that you have an edge on them. It becomes a little tougher to play your A-game, and there is a little bit of a mental hurdle to overcome. You're probably going to be more prone to bluff against someone when you're down and they are more likely to bluff catch against you.
If you get to a point where you are uncomfortable with how deep you are, quitting is a viable option. There is not really a shortage of action at 50nl so you can usually find another opponent right away.
This is why you should typically play someone for as long as they will play you if you are winning, feel like you are alert and playing well, and you have an edge over them.
One thing that I've started doing is doing a mental checklist every so often to ask myself: Am I feeling good still? Am I sharp? Am I playing well still? If I'm not, can I easily get back to where I am doing those things? Would now be a good time to quit?
- dealing with btn limpers/minraisers, esp intelligent players.
Figure out their limping strategy. How often are they limping? Are they limp folding? limp calling? limp 3betting?
Are you having problems where they limp you make it 3bb or 4bb and they call and then you wiff the flop, cbet they call with a wide range and you are feeling lost as to what to do next?
You can do things like make it 5bb pre or 8bb pre, see how big it has to get to get a fold out of them if they are calling all the time.
Typically "intelligent players" aren't the kind that are limping a ton of buttons.
Playing vs a minraising strategy, it depends on what the rest of their strategies are (3/4/5betting strategies, postflop strategies). This is one of those things where a video is likely to be more helpful.
- when and when not to 4bet.
There's no easy answer to this, but it is something that I can talk about more specifically in a video where we can get a feel for the game flow and the individual opponent.
- dealing with cbets which are smaller or bigger than standard.
Figuring out your opponents range for when they vary their cbet sizes is going to dictate what you should be doing vs them. If they are full potting dry boards everytime, he's creating a lot of unnecessary dead money, what's the best way to take advantage of that? We can start c/r'ing, floating oop, calling down lighter, etc... it will depend on their other postflop tendencies.
I play an aggressive game, so I'd love to find out my biggest leaks and maybe remove some high variance moves Ive been doing etc. Another thing would be dealing with players ( i.e the same player) who use diff bet sizes with different respective ranges.
Are they changing their bets based on their hand strength or the board texture or just randomly?
As KRANTZ said in one of his hu vids (I think pr1nnyraiding 1) try to get into your opponents head and understand how he thinks about poker. Try to figure him out so well that you can guess what he ate for breakfast!
