It looks like there was a technical problem uploading the video - we'll get a new copy up soon but since it's Christmas here, it'll bit a bit of a delay before we can get a new copy up.

thanks,
Rob

my progress through the BR challenge so far, little bit of a roller coaster in the transition from 25-50nl

started with 170 at 10nl

shot at 25nl at 250 then when i got to 300 i followed the excel sheet br challenge format

Calling the flop instead of 3betting the flop with the A7s hinges upon a) how many pure bluffs he has in his range and b) how often he barrels the turn with them, right?

I'm thinking this because when we just call the flop we still get stacks in vs his worse draws on the turn on both bricks and spades, but vs his sets/2pair we get stacked on bricks and on spades we let him check back. So the EV of calling the flop vs his draws is the same as the EV of 3betting the flop, but when he has sets/2pair and we call flop he stacks us when we miss but we don't stack him when we hit. But when we 3bet the flop we stack his sets/2pair when we hit and he stacks us when we miss. So the only way I can see calling being higher EV is if we a) expect him to have a decent amount of low equity bluffs and b) barrel those bluffs on the turn a decent %.

You always ask good, thoughtful questions.

An idea I've been thinking about lately is a pros/cons matrix. Imagine columns are the types of hands he can have, and the rows are how he'd play them on the turn. The resulting table would be filled in with the best play. Maybe I'll make a short vid on this. I think it's a great way to look at a situation if done properly. You basically outlined that thought process in your post.

It really depends on how he plays his hands on the turn:
- does he bet his pure bluffs on blanks? on spades?
- does he bet his sets or 2pr on spades? if not, can you still c/r a blank river and stack him?
- does he bet his strong draws on blanks?
- can he raise the flop with weak 1pr hands?

I'm not really sure what the answer is to any of these because they can really depend. I think in general I overestimate how frequently people follow through on the turn after raising the flop.

- I think your logic is sound. The part I don't agree with is that you can't stack a set if the turn is a spade. I think the river is a good spot to attempt another c/r if it doesn't pair. There's not much downside to it. Most hands that would call a bet will bet themselves, and you may get him to make a desperation bluff.

- If he's aggressive on the turn with his bluffs and semi-bluffs, this favors calling and probably c/r the turn (or calling down, but the river gets dicey).


- If he had lots of pure air (and/or weak 1pr hands turned into bluffs) on the flop and will not bluff with those hands, then you are probably better off 3-betting the flop rather than letting him freeroll with ~25% (or 50% if he has a small pp or bottom pair) in about a 25bb pot.
- If he has very little air in his flop raising range, then 3-betting is probably thin.


So I think against most villains, calling is better. You outlined a scenario where calling could be better, but I think you can still stack a set by c/r the river. That may turn that back to a call.
