if we assume the fish is bad, and the BTN raiser, is competent and is trying to ISO in position, should i re-raise to get the fish to myself? Maybe a min or 2.5x raise?



Hey. I'm a random wanderer into your thread.

I definitely think that if BTN is opening his range up to iso the fish, we should be re-isolating the BTN raiser with a wider range then our normal 3betting range. QQ is way ahead of either limper or BTN's range, so 3betting seems to make a lot of sense.

Another thing to consider is that an overcard to our QQ will drop on the flop ~40% of the time. Do we really want to be OOP and without the initiative against 2 people who have extremely wide ranges when an A or K flops?

Also, if limper is bad (which we're assuming he is), he will call with many hands that are in bad shape against us a significant % of the time. I'm pretty sure this makes up for the times when he folds garbage we weren't going to get any value from anyway.

Also, I think 3betting a normal amount is fine. If we min3bet or make it 2.5x and limper calls, BTN will come in with most of his range and we won't have successfully iso'd the fish anyway.

Lol I'm sorry pokergnome I think your name is Alan right? Anyway I don't see the basecamp topic in the HQ forum. I loomed for a long time. Could It be because I was let go from the group when I emailed and said I was taking a break from DC?

Anyway I'm on the last video in NL Micro Grinder and I'll email that to you late tonight.

Can we get more assignments soon please?

I'm a little confused about something and maybe someone in our group could explain this concept to me. What does standard line mean? I hear this a lot and I don't know how to apply it. Is standard line the same thing as playing GTO? Also what are your thoughts on standard lines and when and how do we use them?

Thats a good question Ichi24.

I would guess its every move that the predominantly taught TAG style(s?) covers for a given situation. That could be 3-betting a NIT in position with a wide range, semi-bluffing big draws, tigtening up vs cally LP opponents that have position on you. Not donk-betting into cally players without a hand, etc, etc.

I don't think that 'standard line' is very well defined, since I think it reflects the most commonly recommended play, advocated by winning players.

Anyone else wants to give it a go?

PokerGnome and group,

Whats happening with our assignments? Have we finished the first series? When are we going to get the next?

We've been discussing this via PM's, and some of us are getting impatient (want badly to contribute). There's just not very much activity atm.

Anyone?

HI guys

i have asked Improva for the next assignment. Be patient, there are lots of platoons to organise, and there are plenty of videos to go around.

While you are waiting, why not try making and posting a members video, see if anything you learned from watching Micro NL grinder has worked
