whats your thought process when that 50/5 player shoves the flop on you?
given his stack size and given that many of these guys won't just overbet ship with nutted hands, I'm not folding when he has 70bb and I have top pair and a gutter. While it's probably not unreasonable for him to play a hand like 98 for bottom 2 this way, i think most other better top pairs would be playing it slower and more nutted hands like the straight and set aren't typically just overbet shipping. So although I don't know for certain how this guy would play it, those general rules about how people view hands would lead me to not folding. As the stacks get deeper it would be more of a fold.
Can you please expand on the concept of 2 barreling people with low fold vs 3B %
The lower his fold to 3b% is, the more marginal hands he will have. the more marginal hands he has, the harder it will be for him to get to showdown when we fire multiple barrels.
In an extreme example, if the guy has a fold to 3bet of 95%, we would never even cbet much less barrel. If the guy has a fold to 3bet of 5% we would feel very good about cbetting every board and barreling a lot because his hand range pre would be so weak that it cannot connect hard with any board texture as often as someone with a higher fold to 3b.
Are you just folding that A4s there because we're analyzing a replay? You're definitely wanting to take some flops with suited A on the button especially against the guy on your right, correct?
Yea i think it was because we were discussing the other hand. The thing I'd like to point out here about flatting a hand like A4s here is we need to be aware of who is in the blinds behind us (how often we will get squeezed off our hand) and also we need to not just be playing fit or fold. I feel like this is a spot where some people leak $ because they flat these nice looking hands but they don't ever try to pull a move postflop unless they flop the nut flush draw. If you're going to flat these hands, be willing to try to float and bluff raise some to give yourself some extra earn besides when you just hit.
Right table T6s
If it wasn't raised. Do we isolate the EP limper w T6s OTB knowing that he plays fit or fold postflop? If so, how light we want to isol him.
Some things I'd consider:
1) have we seen him limp/reraise
2) how aware/aggro are the people in the blinds? will they see the iso play and 3bet me lighter?
3) how fit or fold is he postflop
4) how loose he is
As long as those things align correctly, we can iso this hand and other marginal stuff like it. Mostly I'd prefer to have at least 2 connected or suited middling cards or higher...so this would be toward the bottom of my iso range, along with some stuff like K8o, 79o, etc
