What would you do to exploit this stat line 9/6
Can't believe no one has mentioned it, but the biggest part of exploiting these kinds of players is stealing their blinds. If he is to your left you want to be opening much more, especially if he's in the bb when you are btn or C/O. If you are BTN and he's in the bb I would open 100%. If he is on your direct left then I would open much wider from the C/O because you basically have the button when you are in the c/o.

39bb Eff. AA from UTG, TAG image facing raise on low board when 7/30 in 25k gtd.
I think a winning player is actually less likely to fire a 3rd barrel on the river because what is our range when we call a reraise on the flop and a turn bet on 8644' He's not going to put you on a flush draw because good players know that is such a small part of your range, so it's actually pretty strong. Inexperienced players are more likely to continue to spew off on a river bluff, because they aren't thinking players and they just assume we probably just have AK.

39bb Eff. AA from UTG, TAG image facing raise on low board when 7/30 in 25k gtd.
disagree that he is bluffing often with 3rd barrel. The reason we are shoving the turn is because his range is mostly value or draws that may call, but won't bluff the river. I doubt he is folding 99-JJ and who said he was good'

39bb Eff. AA from UTG, TAG image facing raise on low board when 7/30 in 25k gtd.
Hey, I think flop is fine. Raising chases out his bluffs, and we block the As so he doesn't have many flush draws. I think his range is 99-JJ, sets, air, flush draws, maybe hands like 77, 55 that he would rather raise than flat call because by raising he is folding out your equity a lot of times when you have two overs. The turn I like check jam. I think when we check call he checks behind a lot of value hands on the river, and probably gives up his missed draws. It's about 80k more for him to call 200k pot. Very tough for him to fold any over pairs, or draws. Basically I don't think he ...

Key Concepts in MTT Bounty Play
I just put this hand into Hold em resources and if they are shoving nash then you should be calling with a 56.0% range, [22+ Ax+ K2s+ K5o+ Q2s+ Q8o+ J3s+ J8o+ T4s+ T8o+ 95s+ 97o+ 84s+ 87o 74s+ 76o 63s+ 65o 53s+ 43s]. T2s is slightly negative EV in a regular tournament, but with bounties I think it's an easy call. I just noticed that this is a super KO. Getting almost 3:1 with two super bounties makes this a snap call everytime. Not folding anything.

13.5 KO Pokerstars
I would much prefer a raise preflop. The stacks behind you are apt to shove any hand that is fairly good, and with you raising from late position they are much more likely to do that. Raising also builds a bigger pot if the blinds decide to call or 3b. Raise on the flop is good but I would go bigger. 22k would probably be the smallest I'm making it. With him betting out, I would suspect he has a king, or some type of draw, maybe a ten. If he's going to call 12k he's going to call 15k, and with the board so draw heavy, I want to charge him as much as I can. On the turn I think the bet size ...

Not playing for 1st place in MTT
Well first off, I understand taking shots, but if you want to be playing optimally, play inside your bankroll and give yourself at least 100 buyins for any tournament you play so you can play the end of the tournament (which is the most crucial stage) correctly. The spot you mentioned seems like an unexploitable +cEV (chip ev) shove, but regarding ICM, it may have actually been fairly close. +cEV means that you will always gain chips by making this shove, but it may not always be +$EV because of the payout jumps and calling ranges. To make an accurate analysis of the hand we really need all ...

Frowned Upon? Is it affective?
It depends on how much of a lead up have, and what the other stacks are. If the blinds get so high that in one orbit you are down to an average stack, then there aren't as many hands that they can "make a mistake" or make a standard play and burst the bubble. I think playing slower does possibly help you in the long run if you plan to fold everything, but allowing more hands to be played allows them more chances to make a mistake. So it goes both ways. I'm not sure on the actual numbers of what is better for you, but off the top of my head it seems like letting the blinds increase faster ...

Question about Equity and Pot odds.
The biggest flaw in your thought process is having absolute information. When we are playing and he shoves on the flop we don't know what he has, only a range of hands. We have to put our hand against his range not his actual hand because we are trying to make the correct decision in the moment, not after the fact when we have complete information. I can't ever imagine folding here because he may shove hands like QJ or JT, which we have enough equity to call. If we need 36% equity to break even, then yes, when we are up against a range where we have more equity than that it's a profitable ...

Controlling our mindset at the table
As far as playing poker goes, you may not be making the incorrect decisions sometimes, but the reasons you are doing them could be. You shouldn't get into a pissing contest with someone because that means you are letting him get into your head and your ego is affecting your game. My advice is get to know yourself better and you will get better in your game. Do some yoga. Yoga is great for learning how your mind works and how it deals with adversity. A good saying I heard my teacher say is "How you do anything is how you do everything.", and it's true. If you take a look at things from a ...

Hand History Vital Issue
Are you staking someone and you're requesting it from them but you're worried about them doctoring the hh' Or are you requesting a hh from a site and you're worried that they are doctoring it' I don't really understand your dilemma here. If you are requesting a hh from a friend or horse then no, I don't believe there is anyway to tell that it hasn't been altered. You could have them request the last 10,000 hands and have them send you that as well, but they could also just change that.

4 Bet pot, against a villain who seems to have somewhat of a vandetta against me
Sorry, yeah I was going to say something. I haven't read your long post above mine here, but what I was going to say, if you 4b pre, I don't know if shoving the flop accomplishes anything. On an A72 flop, he either hit it or missed it. It does depend what our hand is if we want a call or not, but I think it's safe to bet very very small because you can do this as a bluff or for value.

Advice please
Nothing you can really do about this hand. It doesn't sound like you were overly aggressive, I would say if you had 2x average stack and busted in a marginal spot then possibly but this hand is not a leak or mistake.

Barrel the turn or check behind?
I prefer to 3b 79dd because we fold out hands like A9, K9, Q9, J9, T9, 89, hands that dominate us, and it puts us in a better position to win the pot with a hand that isn't bad but isn't great. With him opening the HJ he's most likely going to have a wide range, and if he flats too wide, then we can make money from him when he check folds too often. If he opens a wide range and folds to 3b often then it's also very +EV. I would prefer to flat a range like [99-22,AQs-A7s,KTs+,QTs+,JTs,T9s,98s,87s] 3b something like this [JJ+,AKs,A6s-A2s,J9s,T8s,97s,A9o+,KTo+,QTo+,JTo] This is very general ...

Laddering up with ICM decisions
Yeah I agree that shoving is better than r/c. I think in most situations where ICM is significant, like this one, just open shoving is going to be far better in the long run than r/c. You already know that he's going to shove on you close to 100% of the time based on how you described him and how he was playing. For simplicity, let's say that these are the payouts: $40 $30 $20 $10 We'll give him a 90% range to be conservative. VS that range we have 63% equity. So 63% of the time, we will win the pot and have a ~14k stack and have about $33 equity for the next hand. (14000, 8000, 2626, 2800 ...

Barrel the turn or check behind?
I prefer to 3bet preflop. A suited one gapper is an ok hand, but I think it plays better with a 3b. It's a decent hand to balance your range with (although balance often doesn't matter in mtts) but it's below what I would want to call with. As for the rest of the hand, I can see reasons for betting the turn and reasons for checking. By betting you might get him to fold A8 or something, but I think 89 still calls. I dunno if you get a jack to fold. By checking you may fool a hand like 55 into thinking he has the best hand, but I don't think you can realistically bet 3rd pair (sometimes 4th ...

Was this a bad call out of big blind?
Most people might shove around 45% here, taking out QQ+, and against that range you have about 50% equity. Off the top of my head, it looks like you need about 45% to break even here (getting 1.2:1). Giving him a fairly tight range for a reg of 36% (JJ-22,A2s+,K2s+,Q8s+,J8s+,T8s+,98s,A2o+,K8o+,Q8o+,J9o+,T9o) we have 46.6% equity so if there's no ICM considerations then it's a call because even the top of that range they most likely aren't just open shoving. If he isn't a reg, we have to figure out what type of player he is and what we think he's shoving. I think vs most players this is a ...

best hand you've ever seen (maybe...)
how many left are we on any sort of money bubble' Pretty sure I'm getting it in here even though I don't like it a whole lot. With all the stacks so short, ranges are a little wider so I'd go with it and hope they all have AK.

Agonising spot with AQ suited
Yeah I don't see flatting as an option, and I also don't like shoving in 30bb vs an UTG 3x pre ante. Unless UTG has been active and I feel he folds often am I shoving here. Most of the time I am folding in a sng pretty easily here.

Tips for relocating into Canada without having issues
Good luck to you. I will tell you that when I tried to go through the Ontario border at Niagara falls she denied me entry and it was a whole ordeal. I had gone up through Quebec multiple times with no problems, and even told them I was going to play poker every time. You may run into the same problem if you have no job, because then poker is your job and depending on how the border agent sees that, they can refuse or let you in. As for money, 6 months is a long time to say you'll be living there with no income and it's also the maximum amount of time you're allowed to stay there without a ...

Too tricky with Aces?
I think your play is fine, and actually I would just flat the flop. There isn't anything you are really worried about the bb having, so you want him to float with overcards or some random hand like that. A flush draw is a very very small portion of his range, and he's only gonna have one about 3% of the time. Overall I think you played the hand just about as best as you could.

lol spot with second nuts facing 3 all ins in the 3r
lol, this is a pretty sick spot, but I think you can actually argue folding here. Medved power probably has a set, and I think it's definitely possible for lovemica or seba to have KJ or a set. There are 12 possible KJ combos, 3 combos of TT, 99, 22 each, and I guess mica can have QQ here. So 12 combos you are basically dead to and 12 combos that you beat. I think I'm folding here, because with 3 ppl shoving the turn for that many chips, I would just expect to see KJ from seba or mica. It does make it really tough that the button is a mega fish, and that may lean me toward calling, as I ...

KK, fold river
I think you should definitely be c-betting this flop. Any pocket pairs are going to call you, and you are correct when you say that with two aces on the flop it is unlikely they have one. After they both check the turn as well, you should cbet here. I think going for two streets of value in this hand is where I'd be comfortable. As for his range I doubt he's calling A7o preflop. It really depends what buyin level this tournament is to narrow down a range, but I think his range is suited broadways. With 26bb I would expect him to be 3bet calling with hands like AQ+, 99+ so I think his range ...
