Wow! Thanks a lot Zialum for watching the whole thing and your detailed analysis and comment I have posted my thoughts back in your remarks. The stickies are great for injecting logic if you remember to look at them The one saying if a fish raises you, FOLD. is one I do now and then forget its there
Ill add you to skype In the comming days, would be good to discus hands etc thanks!
2:11 Do you have a reason for betting 2.5x or is that just your standard?
Yes, Im raising 2,5x CO+BU / 3x UTG+MP / 3,5 SB vs BB
3:02 Hand:33 You need a really good reason to not be raising when sb open completes. I even raise 26o in that spot, they fold or check fold soooooo much on the flop. If they don't make a note of it and adjust. Rest of hand is just kind of shitty, I think there might be merit to making a stab on the flop but I probably just play it the same way
I normally 3bet 22-55 OOP and IP I call , but I guess your right letting him see the flop by limping in is not good.
3:43 Not a bad spot to 3bet bluff
I'm not yet 3betting polarized OOP I'm trying to do it more IP so its on my need to work on list
4:09 Like the flat with AK and no reason not to check it down. I don't like the 2.5x open, if you are getting 3bet a ton or there are short stacks then ok but I think 3x is better.
Didn't want to deviate from my standard opening 2,5x/3x/3,5x
Like the notes you are taking
7:13 You increase your raise size to .35 because he has a high FST, but his 3bet is 18 and such a large raise makes him 3betting you light more profitable. Here is the spot where I might reduce it to .25. Also my stealing range here is any two painted, most any two suited most 1 gappers and pps
it's my standard opening again, If he would start 3betting me a lot I would adjust by tightening up / adjust my bet size
For the record, since there are so many bad players at 10NL, my typical opens are 4x from EP, MP and CO and 3X from BTN SB, not sure if its optimal, but works for me
Ok I'll give it a try, I toke these sizes because I have recently increased my steal% from CO and BU and so trying out if the FTS% is going down (so far it hasn't)
10:00 nh 77
11:00 nh KK
12:05 I'd go ahead and join the waiting list, maybe we get to sit on his left in that game too, if not oh well don't join
13:45 As I said earlier, raise sb limper. Otherwise, nice job going for 3 streets
14:30 Great squeeze spot if we had a better hand. Love it when the fish is the second to act so tag fold and fish call a lot. I even squeeze A5 and 57s there
20:49 I raise the K9 to isolate him
Yes, your right I should have.
22:11 55 interesting hand. Probably worth a post in the forums. VS two good players I love the squeeze, it will be really easy to play postflop if we get called, low flop we bet for value, big flop we are done, set we dance, but with him in the sb he is going to be calling a lot with random stuff I think you are better off just calling. On his donk, it is so small I would raise, but folding is probably better I mean, that isn't how we are going to be taking his money so... yeah I guess fold
23:45 Nice join that waiting list
25:15 lol ship it WEEEEEEEEEE
30:45 On the turn, I think that is too thin. If we had KQ or even KJ sure though. River is ehhhhh, Just bet smaller I think, it is super thin, probably just check/fold
I thought here his range was 23s/34s/45s/56s with the Ace on the flop the number of Ace combo's was getting so small I thought I was ahead lots of the time but calculating below you're right it was too thin not even calculating his K7-K9 hands.
A2*6/A3*8/A4*6/A5*8/A6*8/A7*8/A8*8/A9*8 = 60 combo's
23s*2/34s*3/45s*3/56s*3 = 11 combo's
32:36 KT hand, Cbet wouldn't be horrible here. nh
34:00 Right side, definitely a great squeeze spot if you want it
Would all Ax hands be good enough to use to squeeze in spots like these?
34:33 KK booooooooooo call us!
34:45 A9, Initial reaction: I guess if he is calling us that light turn bet is good, but I just check it back. But actually nevermind, since there are a billion draws he could have and he is probably calling with all of them good bet, vnh
Yes, all those draws; flushes, straights they were going through my mind.. and what does he show
36:00 22 yup
Guy to your left on left side is probably a fish
40:00 AK over 11K hands he is like never folding to a 3bet so bet much bigger, like 1.25, he'll still call wide. This also mean I am no longer polarized in my 3bets and am no very value oriented. On the flop, c/c might get more value from him
but nothing wrong with cbet
Your right, he calls 57% of the 3bets I should have raised him bigger.
43:30 Totally cool with the 55 raise on the left, but think that is a steal spot on the right
Hmm I guess my thinking was not wanting to play him OOP if it was BU vs SB 100% steal but from the SB he would call me a lot and I don't like the hand using it as a bluff?
46:00 on the right, Just lead that flop multiway and then when it gets checked through you have to lead the turn.
On this flop I couldn't see anyone having a better hand and as it such a dry flop I thought slow playing it trapping some $ in before betting it do you think if I had cbet the flop they were going to call me?
48;00 meh, I fold QT from MP always
50:00 Still value in betting the river there
Guess the I was scared of the FD
