How do you play AQ/TT/88 here?
I would play TT and 88 the same way vs this particular villain. AQ I probably just CC/decide.
How do you play here QQ, TT-JJ, AK,AQ ? How position change it ? (letâ€™s assume this is MP vs CO and we are OTB)
What is the good callingrange & 4bet/c range fot Referent (or even 4b/f?) preflop?
How do you play if he bets this mentioned 8$ ?
How gertjan66 should play here? cbet/c or cbet/f?
I am much more likely to raise TT-QQ because of the inherent vulnerability of those hands. They also fall much more into my perceived cold calling range, so I try and avoid cold calling them if viable.
Position doesn't really change the dynamic much at all, except for making the hand easier to play postflop.
Referent can call with any pair. I don't see much value in him slowplaying a huge pair. He has to have a very clear idea of my cold call/folding range for a 4bet bluff to be good. It may be ok for him to 4bet KQ+ if he's comfortable putting me on a range and happy with the idea that the person in my position may call the 4bet.
If BTN bets $8 I can't fault a jam anyway, but I would probably call to allow the Referent the biggest opportunity to make a mistake and to rep weak showdown value. I'd be a lot more likely to shove regardless of bet sizing if it was Referent betting and not BTN.
gertjan66 played it fine.
What if we have here AQ, QJs,JJ,TT,air on the flop?
I'm not sure I show up with TT-QQ in this spot often at all. AQ and QJ is a CC/decide.
You said that checking range here on river looks weak and the top of it is a weak king. In fact I see really often that regulars check here strong kings or even 9x. So should we shove in this kind of spot if we are in position or not?
Shoving would be fine as long as you're not repping a ton of bluffs. Villain plays in a way that specifically places many floats in his range on the river which means he's a lot more likely to be bluffing than some rando reg with a clean image.
What if he shoves? We need ~27% EQ so we can call here
I don't believe he shoves 9x and random 43s, I'm not sure 43s is even in his range to begin with.
I would not lead in 9x myself unless he never cbets, same for 77. TT I may lead, but I do plan to stack off with it for 100bbs if I do, so I must have some other read that allows for this.
I disagree with that he will not pay us on the river when the flush comes (if we call). Imo people donâ€™t believe in backdoor flushes.
I have also a question about our perceived range on turn. From my experience most of nl50 regulars are not raising TP here, so they also donâ€™t perceive it in other ranges. Then, for him 9Q = AQ in this spot and he can calldown us lighter. Am I leveling ? : D
Last question about this spot. If we are repping sets/str8 and mentioned TP then what if the clubs comes? Then this is the similar spot to the A9o so should we make a small depolarized bet ?
I think if you assume someone's range can't be that tight in that spot and you call down Qx you'll just see a set and A3 the vast majority of the time. If you have specific reads, that is different.
The board is a little too dry for a depolarised bet to be effective unless you are extremely sure in how your opponent plays his showdown value. Even if the board were wetter, you'd want to know your opponent can turn down attractive pot odds.
