  1. Same with PokerstarsPA. Sharkscope has everything but still no p5s tracking six months after launch 😞 no one will give an update either.
  2. Because I believe people spaz out with other hands that aren't the stone cold nuts. To be fair, I now see this is a $109 which is above my buy in range. I still don't think I'm finding a fold here. I think there are some good arguments, and think 89s is possible, I'm still not finding the fold button here tho.
  3. I don't think you expected to post this and have people agree with you, that's quite the fold (i would not have folded here, ever). This may be one you could have chalked up to sick read and keep to yourself lol, but no, you gotta call call there man.
  4. I bet 75k. Villain called and had AQ. I was pretty surprised that's what he had. I think the advice in this thread was good and there were some mistakes here regardless of the outcome.
  5. There was a couple of solid winning players remaining. Small blind was a good player, villain was not. What's your opening range look like in this spot with these stacks?
  6. Villain running 30/24/51 with 11 three bet. Sample size is about 300 hands. Is this a clear spot for a small value bet or a clear spot to check it back? Any other suggestions on previous streets also welcome.

  7. I'm not saying that's optimal. I'm saying if that's how hero had been playing this stack or had open shoved this similar stack in previous hands I wouldn't change that pattern when hero has a premium hand.
  8. If your open shoving your entire range with this stack then just 2-2.5x your top top range... i think that's a mistake.
  9. First hand kind of sucks. Have we seen villain cold call anything previously? His line seems strong, but he can be making this play with a handful of draws too. I'm in between and don't hate the fold. Second hand, I don't like the overbet on the flop. Villain is short so we probably don't get away from it regardless.
  10. I think open shove is fine too. I think it depends what if any previous actions you had with this stack/table (or if these are repeat players). If you had been open shoving the same stack with 78s, ATo, etc etc then yes open shoving is the much better play. If you open shove these stacks with decent playable hands but just raise with super premiums like KK people will pick up on that quickly.
  11. I wouldn't be folding with our stack. Tons of hands we beat like Qx and spade draws in their ranges. If we ran into two pair/set then so be it, but I don't think folding is the play here.
  12. The show was great. Even knowing the angle and objective of the show was to prove innocence it is really hard to see how this kid could have possibly been found guilty.
  13. 99 is really strong here and I think you are doing good against their ranges given their stats (assuming this was a decent sample). I don't think this is a bad play. The other line would be to 3b get it in vs. shoving. Generally jamming 30 bigs pre in a spot like this is a pretty narrow range for most folks and people can play against it accordingly. If you are looking for less variance you could flat and set mine, but that's a pretty nitty/bad line when we 32bb deep, out of position and are ahead of opener and flatters ranges a big percentage of the time.
  14. Prepare something before hand. This is the only way to go if you want to eat decent. If you plan on grinding make a good portion of something earlier in the day, or if you are working, the evening before. Any type of salad, pasta salad, etc. If you are busy working and aren't much of a cook (like me) you can even pick up a simple pre made dish at the store. Something good and fresh though, avoid crap food. It's bad enough to be sitting for so long. Nothing like grinding and then downing a bunch of pizza and snacks. Not a good feeling!
  15. Thanks for the post that's a good point and definitely a leak. I would probably not bet a set or 2p like that. Like you said i don't narrow his range by betting 1/3 or so of pot on such a board. So as played what's your thoughts with no reads?
  16. Oops, wrong forum. Can mod please move to strat or delete. Sorry/thanks.
  17. What's your line here. New table, no reads. I only have a starting bounty. Fold, call (then how to proceed) or jam?

  18. Crazy aggressive meaning he has made a very large overbet shove in the past and seemed generally spewy. I do not think he is a strong player. I don't know what my bounty was, but I believe it was probably substantial for the stakes. What impact do you think that would have on the hand? The fact that more people are playing hands vs me? I'm assuming that's the case and I definitely agree. Villain doesn't stand to win my bounty on this hand however, though with the bounties it definitely loosens up preflop calling/raising ranges.
  19. I got my setup in recently. Appreciate the recommendation. So far so good. I wasn't able to get the batteries shipped which worked out well because it forced me to find a cool vape shop in town. I believe wattage is person to person, but I'm around 36-40. Is that normal? I think it goes a lot higher than that, i'm not sure about all the configurations/features of the box yet though. I just basically know how to make it fire.
  20. I'm definitely folding to the three bet, i think we are very far behind vs. most people's 3b range in PLO. Not an omaha guru by any stretch, but I'm not sure potting is best here either. If we raise I think we can do so smaller and try to see if we hit our flop and get out cheaper if we get a 3b. I think in general you want to see flops before committing yourself pre unless you have a great pre flop hand which this is not. This advice could be refuted, but that's my take :) good luck
  21. I think it's a tad too much to ship pre. I think 20 bb or less I'm jamming but some folks have had good arguments against that before, that's just usually how I play it. With your stack I just raise but i definitely raise it more pre with a limper behind so I can try and isolate and play this hand in position with one opponent that has shown weakness. I don't want to play a multiway pot with my hand deeper in a tourney and oop. So at this type of blind level/stage of the game I will at least 3x and maybe a little more depending on how the table has been playing. As played I'm not investing anymore into the hand.
  22. I would personally c-bet this flop. If given resistance I would just be trying to get to showdown as cheaply as possible. I think checking it back here is a pretty weak line with this board and if villain is a profitable reg I'd think he can exploit that. If you had a Ax would you check this flop? I don't think I would very often against randoms I don't have history with. Given that, I think it's possible that he's running a bluff, but by the river that's literally all we beat. As played I'm folding. That's my .02, I'd like to hear other thoughts. I think this is a good hand to review.

    You will win far less/lose much more playing higher stakes. The concept of less variance because some fish calls with weaker hands is very backwards. I also play for fun, but want to grind my way up stakes. Variance is very real and brutal so be prepared to withstand big time swings. I think a good starting point is 100 buy ins for regular MTT's and maybe 150 buy ins for turbo tourneys. Maybe a little less than 100 buy ins for KO MTT's. Of course the more buy ins the safer route.
  24. When we bet and get raised on the turn i'm not folding. I would expect most two pair and sets to bet the flop on this board, I think a lot of the time our opponent has a pair and one card straight draw/high club combination (or even just the draw(s)). Some of the times we are behind to a flopped straight or a low flush, but I think we are ahead enough times here to call, plus it looks like you are still in the rebuy period so he could be even crazier than that.
  25. Not saying it's correct, but I would have folded to the check raise without any info. As played I'm folding the turn like you did. If I've seen villain splash around a bit I'd be more inclined to look him up, but without any info on villain I don't think I'd be committing most of my stack with top pair and low kicker given the line our opponent took.
