I've been a part of the PocketFives community for many years and wanted to give a little back. I recently ran a promotion on my website, http://www.ChrisMoorman.com, reviewing hand histories for readers, and I wanted to do the same for PocketFives. In order to take part you need to submit your interesting, complicated, or troubling hands in this thread by using the PocketFives Hand Replayer, link to another replayer, or pasting as text. Each day starting Monday, December 16, I'll review one hand of my choosing and post my response here. Happy Holidays to everyone and I look forward to seeing your hands.

For my first hand history review I decided to pick the following hand from Groovedeck

The first thing that struck me in this hand was your opponents raise size. He has made over a 4.5x raise from mid position. My first reaction here would be to fold to this unless he was an incredibly weak player and this was his normal sizing. Even if this was the case I still think that this is a very marginal spot to take with this hand.

A9 suited is a hand that will often be dominated by his raising range from this position (by AK-A10.) For example if we hit an ace on the flop we aren't going to be happy going for 3 streets of value when checked to and if we hit a 9 on the flop it's still very likely there will be other over cards on board. Obviously having the nut flush draw is a nice little bonus for our hand but in reality this is very rarely going to come into play. One thing to consider here preflop is what would you do with A9 off?

Sometimes we can be blinded by a hand being suited in MTTs and feel like we are forced to play it because of the possibilities we could have postflop. A9 suited is definitely a good three bet candidate for me normally although his sizing is putting me off three betting a lot here. In my experience, unless this was his standard sizing, this sizing represents a strong hand for a weaker player. A weaker player often raises bigger with stronger hands because they don't want people to be able to get in cheap in order to crack their big hand. Therefore reraising in this situation would be playing into his hands and allowing him to 4b you off your hand. In conclusion preflop I think folding is best. I like your idea of trying to take this weaker player to the streets where he is likely to be very uncomfortable given his preflop sizings, but I would prefer to have some kind of suited broadway type hand that flops much better than A9.

On the flop I think I just prefer to bet when checked to here. If it was a K75 rainbow flop I would be a bit more concerned about a slowplay or pot control line when he doesn't continuation bet here. However, with the flush draw present I think he is much more likely to just bet a hand even as strong as pocket kings because he will be concerned about the flush draw hitting if he gives away a free card. We do have a little bit of showdown value if we check behind here but it could actually end up getting us in trouble. For example he could be checking to check fold AJ on this board, however if we check behind and an ace comes on the turn we could end up losing a further two streets to him now when we could have just won the pot by betting the flop.

The turn raise is an interesting idea for sure although I'm not really sure what you are trying to represent here. Obviously I can see that you only have A9 high but even if I didn’t know that, the only value hand I would really be concerned about here would be pocket 8s. Flush draws are just going to bet the flop when checked to and a straight seems really unlikely considering the preflop raise size was over a 4x raise. I'm all for showing heart in hands and trying to take them away from our opponents but I think this is a little too optimistic.

My first comment on the river is I like that you followed through with your turn raise by barreling the river. I also agree that your opponent is likely to have a big diamond a lot here. I think his most likely range of hands to bet call this turn are 99-QQ with a diamond and AQ/AJ/AT with the ace or queen of diamonds. It is important to note that there are more combinations of the ace high than the pairs which will increase the % of successful river bluffs. I think by betting this river you always get the better ace high hands to fold and sometimes get the big pairs to fold also. Even if he always calls with the big pairs and always folds the ace high with diamond type hands then you are still getting the right price on the river bluff.

In conclusion I definitely see a lot of potential in your play from going over this hand. It's important to not try and be too ambitious versus strong ranges with weaker hands, though. A big part of being successful in low stakes tournaments is about playing solid, getting maximum value on your strong hands, and picking off obvious bluffs from your opponents.

So this hand happened in the 100r on stars on a friday. We got number #1 and #2 in chips in this tournament at the same table, and they got lots of history. However, LNG (laggy norwegian guy) #1 just got moved to this table, and this hand happened within the first orbit. In other words, he has no idea of the dynamics at the table or anything like that. But he expects LNG #2 to open a lot of hands with this stack. Since they know of each other really well, they will prob. try to take some funky lines vs each other. They are both really active, and will clash at some point...

The funny thing about this one is they didnt really clash at all, a 3rd guy wanted to get sandwiched between these two. And he has a pretty decent stack as well. He took the command of the hand on the turn, and followed through on the river with a really big bet (around pot sized me thinks).

As a bystander, wanna give some ranges on these people on every street? And what would be the weakest hand/range you'll call with on the river if you're LNG #1?

And yes, i've not included what they actually had on the river.

If the chip leader was aggressive and on the button instead of the small blind then I might open fold this hand. However, with him being in the small blind and out of position I feel like it is a good spot to try and get a light steal through. Once the big blind three bets he is pretty polarized in this spot to premiums and air. I would be a little concerned that he made his three bet so small even though he is out of position. It's almost like he is forcing us to at least call preflop. Obviously it's easy to say that after the fact, knowing he has aces, but it really does look more like a big pair than a big ace or an air ball.

Even though we are getting an amazing price to defend this three bet in position I think when we call we should really be proceeding with caution. I could also see folding preflop being an option even with the incredible price just because of how far behind his range I think we are.

Once we do call this is obviously a great flop for our hand but I would be a bit paranoid that he didn't continuation bet such a dry flop. On this board you never have two pair other than a possible 43 suited and you very rarely have top pair. Most of your hands that aren't floats on this board will have a tough time getting to showdown versus continued aggression eg 55-88 and so therefore it makes little sense for him to be check folding here or even just check calling with an ace high type hand. I would consider checking behind this flop because I fear a check raise from an overpair trying to be tricky and if it is a big check raise we will be in a really tough spot with our hand. I think your flop sizing is good, though once you do decide to bet and to a check raise this small calling seems to be the only play.

On the turn once our opponent checks on the overcard I would check behind like you did and try to get to showdown/improve on the river. Once the river comes another 4 and our opponent now bets 120k into a 320k pot and you are faced with a decision that is crucial for you to get right to increase your chances of winning the tournament. If you call and are wrong then you will be the short stack and have lost half of your stack, conversely a correct call and you are 2nd in chips with a stack close to 60bb.

On this river you are getting an amazing price to call and only need to be right around 27% of the time. In my opinion though, this is just not a line people ever take as a bluff. It is obvious that you have showdown value and the river card is not a scare card at all. His river sizing is not polarizing either and it is very easy for him to value bet a wide range of hands here. If he was bluffing the flop with the check raise (which I've already said I felt was unlikely) then he would 100% continue his story on a scare card like a queen. When he didn't do this it really shows to me that you are beat. I feel like you will see an overpair to the 9 almost always when you call here or even an A9 that he decided to 3b preflop and made a bad sizing mistake with.

The fact that he shows down AA in this hand does not surprise me one bit as the recurring theme throughout the hand is that he is not concerned with giving you free cards/cheap cards. He has made it very tough for you to ever fold your hand with the price he has given you on multiple streets but in reality I feel like he is never bluffing here so you should have folded at some point with perhaps the river being the most obvious street to fold. Although our hand appears strong on this board it is still a bluff catcher and in my opinion our opponent is just never bluffing like this in this spot 4 handed on a final table.

Hey, Moorman

This is a hand from a deep run in the Bigger 8.80 on stars, we're decently deep at this point and I ran into an interesting situation. Everyone at the table is solid no fish to be seen, I have a weak hand on the button but I want to steal the blinds, so I raise but when I am 3 bet if I fold here I make it known I am stealing light, which means my image is wrecked.

So I flatted the 3 bet but I was told by a friend I could 4 bet here, and then when the flop comes I feel this is ideal to raise him because its so wet he cannot continue without having a really good hand.

As a bystander, wanna give some ranges on these people on every street? And what would be the weakest hand/range you'll call with on the river if you're LNG #1?

And yes, i've not included what they actually had on the river.

*** SHOW DOWN ***

The fact that you used this hand history for analysis without the hole cards exposed suggests to me that we are going to see some really crazy results. I'm interested to know what these players had in this hand though so I'll try my best. I will say, though, RubberBandMan (RBM) is a really good regular in my opinion.

Obviously preflop in this hand everyone is really wide and we can discount the biggest of pairs from laggy norwegian guy1 (LNG1) as he would want to build a preflop pot this deep rather than trapping. RBM is closing the action from the big blind and getting great odds, depending on his tendencies he could be calling here with around 55% of hands which includes any pair, any suited hand, any broadway cards and some off suit wheel aces and connected cards.

I expect utg to continuation bet this flop with the majority of his range although I think people in general would continuation bet too wide here. LNG1 will be calling this flop a lot with his ace highs, king highs with backdoor flush draws, his 109 and 89 suited hands and all pairs so he will often be continuing and has the positional advantage in this hand. Once RBM has a continuation bet and call in front of him his overcall suggests some kind of straight draw (109,89,85,54), 7x for trips, over pair 88-JJ that wouldn't squeeze pre flop or 6x that might be looking to make a play later in the hand with blockers.

When LNG1 leads out on the turn he is saying that he can beat an over pair obviously. He could do this with 54 that turned a straight or a 7 that didn't want to check raise such a dry flop as he thought it would look too strong. He might also do this with a hand like 89/109 of diamonds both of which have a lot of outs to improve on the river but leading the turn here would also give him the option to win the pot without showdown. When both LNG1 and LNG2 call this turn lead they are uncapped here so it seems like an undesirable spot for RBM to follow through with his bluffs on the river. Also any of the players in this hand could have a hand as strong as a full house so even if RBM has a value hand like trip 7s with a weak kicker I don't think he can value bet the river too thinly.

On the river RBM jams for pot, which should be a very polarizing bet. I think it is unlikely he would do this with a hand weaker than A7 for value. I think it is pretty hard for LNG2 to call this bet without a straight when he also has LNG1 behind him to worry about also. LNG2 can call slightly wider but still I would expect RBM to have a straight/full house or A7 here most of the time. You picked this hand for analysis though which means that it's probably going to be an unexpected result so in this case I expect RBM to turn up with 98d and LNG1 to have called him down with pocket tens lol.

$10 Merge tuornament. How often can I take the pot down with this line here?

BayBay is running 32/10 and is bad. Rock is running 20/15 and is decent.

My read based on Bays bets are that he does not have a jack in his hand. Can my line take the pot or am I in dreamland here?

If I remember correctly this is the big11 on stars and my reads were that the 16bb flatter was pretty bad, flatting a lot preflop and then maybe peeling once post, maybe raise some cbets. just splashing without being a huge station. Buttonclicker?

BB was playing good for this field, raised a ton in LP and put a lot of pressure on shorter stacks.

I can't remember my own image but I guess it was fairly active

Cbet flop? looks strong for this tourney to bet into 2 people and one of them having 2x pot behind so I'm kinda meh on that, I dont want to bet here, have the shorty move in weak and get the bigstack off a draw that could double me up on later streets

As played I'm regretting not cbetting ....

Bleh, I'll throw this one in here. There's like no history but thought I'd throw it in.

Obv it'd be nice to know the outcome of the first hand in order to better assess the second hand but both I and the btn folded the turn so it doesn't say too much to help us with ranges on the next hand.

Can you assign ranges here? How do you play these?

Here was a very odd spot.

I'm clashing with the other CL as we are 1/2 in chips in the tournament. He's running 22/18 and has definitley shown some weird hands down prior. I've got a solid image - not playing too many hands at the time. The hand is pretty straightforward until the river I think where I face a ridiculous shove - I'm sure my handc is underrepped significantly. Is this a call or is he nutted too often?
