We value raise with 99 on Q68 to get value from 26/24 type player. I cant imagine him calling with anything but a queen really.
Isnt calling flop stab and shutting down to further action better here?
i think is because they had a note on the player donk betting with btm/mid pairs.
What do you do if you're in his shoes? If you donk (would you? and why?). Do you shove for value vs what... QJ? TT/JJ? Seems like a really awkward place to be from his perspective because if he doesn't shove he's going to give cards to an aggressive-good player that might be raising to get cards or get to showdown, however if you shove you only get called by better.
Although, the shove does fold out cards that have equity against us (draws, pairs, AK/Ax).
I was just thinking, what would I do there and I realized that I would probably c/r the likely cbet that was coming and avoid this whole situation. Interesting. If she checks behind and we somehow make it to the river, well I'm getting pretty owned.
The strategy for playing bad passive players is betting for value until you get raised. The strategy for playing bad aggressive players is also stated as betting for value. I didn't catch what the differences were between the two. Is it as simple as not folding to raises from bad aggressive players. Can anybody clue me in on what Baluga has to say here. If it is covered in a future video, just point me there.
You talked about taking alot of Ax hands and 3betting them to death at the start of the session, because people will usually either fold pre or fold to a cbet on the flop. Do you have any experince with this strategy at lower stakes, or is this something you should only apply at 50nl and higher?
you mention bet folding vs somniac when we have QQ on a KK6 rb flop. Somniac is a 39/29 player. Your comment was : "what if he raises.... If that guy raises, he is most likely raising for value"
But, this is not the passive player that Kristy is speaking of in Baluga Theorem, this is somniac.
Were you meaning if any player raises on a KKx board it is most likely a King at micro's ?
great video, found it after checking out CK#2
