Deep in Hyper Turbo with AJo
Definitely shoving for value here. Don't mind a call as his VPIP and PFR are so high, it's probably going to be higher in the CO/HJ, and with blinds so high. Don't underestimate your fold equity here either. Players who are 3x'ing, especially in a hyper turbo, probably don't understand pot odds either. Shove and don't think twice.

Heads up NL 3 betting strategy
If they are raising close to 100% of the time, you can profitably call close to 100% of the time. Just get more comfortable playing flop turns and river instead of focusing on preflop action and I think you will dramatically improve your game.

Folded 99 against a 20bb 3 bet shove on bubble of $5 rebuy tournament
I don't think we can "safely remove" KK+ from the BB's range, but even with the top tier hands there I think it's still a call. Unless there is a stack that has

Heads up NL 3 betting strategy
I think the 3betting range depends much more on your strategy for the hand afterward. 3 betting preflop can be super -EV if you just check/fold flops, or cbet flop and fold turn. Instead of looking for 3 betting ranges, I would suggest looking at your overall strategies for flops, turns, and rivers. When 3 betting out of the BB, you're going to be playing the rest of the hand out of position, so you're making bigger pots when you are most vulnerable.

7 left opening Aqo in the co.
It's actually a really nasty spot considering ICM and the situation. The BB only has 22bb so I wouldn't be surprised to see him shoving small pairs and AJ etc. The problem I have here is determining what he calls out of the BB, and what he shoves. I think after thinking about it I reluctantly call. Your opening range from the CO is just too large, and with the big stack playing a lot of hands, I think that widens his shove range just a little bit as well. I would call and not feel too terrible about it.

Spot bvb vs reg? $5MTT
Interesting spot. I think it's most likely he has a J or nothing, as I think an A would have played more aggressively preflop. It is very close, although I think I throw in the call on the river. The most likely hands I guess I'm expecting to see are hands that have a 2 or 4 that picked up the wheel draw on the turn, but I think it's just as likely to see a J or even a 9 that got there. Getting 3:1 I think I pay it off on the river.

Just folding turn with Ace high? $5 MTT
I agree with most of what yjbrewer said. I think you played it fine until the turn. There aren't many hands you beat on the turn vs a tight player. AT and KQ are really the only hands I see you winning a showdown vs, so calling the turn is really -EV I think. I think you are deep enough to play this hand pretty ABC and just fold the turn. I don't think you are folding the best hand very often at all.

Frequent spot against regs - little help on an area of my game
I think checking or betting are both fine, dependent on what your strategy after that is. By betting you are (hopefully) folding out most of his hands that have decent equity vs us, hands like Q8, 67, hands that have a pair draw, and by checking, you are more likely to get to showdown, but open yourself up to being bet out of the pot. If you are a reg as well, I think balance does come into play here, so asking yourself how you play your value hands, like Kx, makes a difference whether you should check or bet.

Cash game pot
I don't mind how you played it at all. I think if he has two pair he pays you off on the river as well. It's just unlucky he made a flush on you. I like calling or raising preflop because of the extra $25 in the pot. The goal on the flop is to get your opponent to call or raise with inferior hands, so we can't make it too big, but we also need to look at the bigger goal of possibly getting our whole stack in by the river. There is a line where you can get too greedy and you need to figure out what is the most he will call, and that is what you should bet.

is this a huge error?
Definitely not folding pre. When you are this deep and have position on every street I'm taking a flop here with a very high % of hands. I think 3 betting pre is fine, and so is calling. 3 betting gets him to fold out a lot of the hands that have you dominated (hands that contain a T or a 2, and also makes it tough for him to play against you correctly out of position. As played, after this flop I would probably raise as his bet is weak, and it's very unlikely he has better than ace high.

AQ with 5x raise from utg
For the record, it is just a pot raise, which is slightly different than a 5x raise. The size is about the same, but just the info that he clicked pot tells you a little about the player. Regardless, without any info I would fold. With a raise this size, you're going to be playing a big pot post flop, and generally it's going to be tough to know if you are ahead if your hand improves. There are definitely better spots to pick a battle with a stack this deep.

AQs on the bubble
Actually probably very close $EV wise, but being a MTT you aren't really playing for that first pay level, so I would be shoving here, but I'm really not shoving that much wider. Not sure what the actual bottom of my range is but I would tighten it up a bit shoving UTG. Absolutely jamming this from late position happily. With only having 10bb, your stack is going to diminish quickly with those blinds, and every time you shove and no one calls, you increase your stack by 25% just from picking up the dead money. You want to be more aggressive in late position especially against shorter stacks, ...

FT medium stack vs chip leader
lol he is never folding AK or AJ here. It is button vs BB. Samgreek, your range is way too narrow as he is probably raising at least 40% of hands on the button in what looks to be the late stages of a tournament. What are you basing your assessment of "loose passive" on' Are you using a HUD' I'm sure he can have a lot of air in his range on the turn here, but I agree that I don't think he's shoving the river as a bluff if you call the turn.

FT medium stack vs chip leader
I would just shove turn. It's unlikely he's going to bluff the river after we call the turn, and with a lot of draws out there you may get a call from one of them. You only have 22bb left on the turn so shoving would be 17bb more to him. It's tough to range people in micro levels because you run into a lot of different types of players, and the standard lines people take for higher limits don't always translate to these levels. But I would think you are definitely good here often enough to shove.

Missing value on the river with a set of 4´s?
as played yes I'm definitely betting turn and river for value. It's unlikely he had a flush draw and that's the only thing the Kd completes. He's probably going to call you with any pair, even ace high sometimes. If he is a very bluffy player, then checking to induce a river bet from a stray 3 or 5 is fine, as it may be the best play vs that type of player.

4 betting from the button with k10o ........too aggro
Unless you have prior history I'd just fold this one. 3.9% 3b is pretty low, and with stacks so close I would think you can find a better spot to get your money in. Is this a 6max tournament' It's not a terrible shove, risking 600k to win about 200k, but against a player with a low 3b % you're gonna run into it a lot.

Playing 66 in WPT $330 NL Deepstack?
This is a dream spot to flat. It's a hand that's easy to dump on flops that you don't hit a 6 and when you do hit a 6 you're almost always going to have the best hand. I hate 3b/getting it in, and would almost never 3b here. You're just going to put yourself in terrible spots postflop because your hand sucks on most flops. I assume you will get called a decent portion of the time seeing as the pot is already like 40k, and it's only 12k for someone who's already in to call. Being in the SB also adds fuel to the fire because we're going to be OOP for the entire rest of the hand, and we're not ...

Two hands tonight have me wondering if I can get better value on river bet
As played, I think checking the flop is fine because you can have hands like TT-QQ and AQ etc in your range, but I hate hate hate the turn check. I would think about what you would bet with a hand like QQ and bet that amount. Something on the smaller side, but you have to start building the pot so you can get stacks in on the river. The way it's played, he's folding anything that isn't a king on the river. The story you're trying to sell is you missed the flop, gave up on the turn, and now oh wait, you think his river bet is weak so you think he'll fold. It's much more likely that you have a ...

SB resteal vs LAG FT
1000 antes 1000 sb 2000 bb When he folds, we win 8000. When he calls and we lose, we lose 28600. When he calls and we win, we win 33600. Let's assume he's raising a 37% range. [22+,A2s+,K3s+,Q7s+,J7s+,T7s+,97s+,87s,A2o+,K9o+,Q9o+,J9o+,T9o] When he raises, he calls with the top 14% of that range and we have 39.5% equity. [55+,A6s+,KJs+,A8o+,KQo] When he folds the bottom 23% of his range we win $8k chips. This is the formula for calculating our equity in these spots. (% of the time he folds) * (the chips we win when he folds) + (% of the time he calls) * [(our equity vs his calling range ...

ICMIZER 2 don´t like this typical move
I think 10% is too tight of a range to put him on. There's definitely a raise/fold range for him with there being antes. What do you think he does with a suited Ace' do you think he doesn't open KTo' If you readjust his range to be wider, I think it will show that shoving QQ is going to be +EV here. If he was opening from EP then I think your range of 10% is closer, but with villain on the button his range is just not that tight in my opinion.

AKs on the Big 7,50
Well your sample is small, so there's really not much to go by here, other than the fact that he looks somewhat tight. I've seen this be JJ+ and AQ+ and in a $7.50 buyin I'm not folding for 23bb. he does have a tight range but with us blocking both an ace and a king, and having seen it be smaller pairs before, I go with it although I'm not entirely thrilled about it.

Interesting spot in live PLO cash game
Well the reason I limped in the first place is because people will stack off with top two pair on KJ4 boards, or lower sets, so top set actually does have a lot of value in this game. If no one else wants to reply I will post results soon.

Interesting spot in live PLO cash game
Hey everyone. I was in this spot today, and thought it was a pretty good spot to analyze so I'm posting it here. I will post my thoughts and results after some responses. $1-$2 PLO 9 handed cash game. Play is very loose, ppl often playing way too many hands and overplaying them. I have $490 and limp UTG with KcKs9h2h bunch of limps behind, BB who raises pre over 50% of the time makes it $15, I call, and 3 others call. Pot $94, Flop: Kh Qc 9c BB checks, I check, overly aggressive player bets pot, has us covered. Solid player with about $275 total calls, BB folds. Action to us' My read ...

Middle set in Friday Challenge, tough spot?
Yeah before reading the results I am not folding here. No way. The only way you can fold is if he shows you 99 before you act. With both of them shoving your equity is good enough for the price you're getting, and I expect to be ahead here most of the time. With the SB just ripping over your bet, the BB isn't folding two pair, and may even stack off with something like 89 because the SB shove just looks so spewy, like a combo draw or something. You're just ahead here too often to fold, and when we're up against: SB: TT,A9s-A8s,97s+,A9o-A8o,97o+ BB: 99,66,A8s,T8s,97s,76s,T8o,97o,76o we have ...

do u 3 bet pre so early in a tournament?
Oh, I didn't even see that you were sb, I thought you were the button. This makes this even more a fold. I would want to be 3 betting hands like JTs, hands that play well post flop. With A6o you're not going to hit the flop often, and when you do, by 3 betting you're folding out his weaker aces, so I just don't see it as a good play.

do u 3 bet pre so early in a tournament?
I mean, in a $2.50 tournament, where I wouldn't expect players to be paying much attention, I don't think your image matters as much, and I think playing ABC poker will actually benefit you more in the long run. In this situation I wouldn't 3 bet here, and I'd just fold. In a higher buyin tournament, you can make arguments for 3 betting because you block an ace, and you want to build an image, as well as history for later...but honestly, I think your best play here is to just fold. I think the optimal strategy early in these tournaments is standard tight aggressive. Once the antes come in, ...

Soo frustrating!! Am I just running bad or just bad?? How can I tell?
Well, sounds like you need to go over some of these hands with someone who is good at poker to give you insight, and to tell you if you are actually making good decisions. Posting hand histories here is a great start to figuring that out. You can look at stats all day long, and tell yourself that you deserve to win these pots, but that is tilting in itself. Jared Tendler talks about it in his book, it's called "entitlement tilt". When you think you deserve to win something and you get mad when you don't. It's dangerous because it can put you in a constant cycle of blaming bad luck and not ...
