  1. Line looks fine to me and just need to either bet-fold or check-call river, but I prefer bet-folding when you know you can play perfectly against this type of villain. Reason I say that is you have absolutely no reason to believe this villain has any spazzes against you or a balanced bluff range on this river. This profile of player is simply betting the hand he has. Had you mean against someone that gets completely out of line or has a lot of Ax overplays, I like the check-call to keep in bluffs and all the time they value own themselves.

  3. Passive postflop line with AA

    Agree with @turbulence almost across the board 1 - Your squeeze has to be larger in this atypical situation. You are way too deep, which often creates a "chip drunk" dynamic where they keep calling. Perfect time to max exploit them. Your equity is so huge here heads-up, but drops dramatically as soon as you go 3 or 4 way. I get the not wanting to blow them out, but you really need to take this heads-up. Alternatively you could take a passive line by flatting pre and work in some check-raises on the flop or turn depending on the texture and run out. But not in between. My suggestion would be to make it like 6k to get it heads-up. I know it feels weird. 2 - Had that flop been A85ddx I would maaaaybe be on-board with the check-overcall, but given your opponents can have a lot of Kx and combo draws, and especially because you unblock the Ad, this must be a c/r at this point and we're playing for stacks. Flatting here has literally no upside and allows multiple opponents to realize the equity of their nut draw hands for free. 3 - Agree in this scenario villains on average have to play much more honestly and are likely to take lower variance lines with their medium-strong holdings as it tends to be a really good thing when there is limited betting frequency. That said, I would disagree that in this scenario multi-way I think a check raise could certainly be for definition from hands like KQs/o, KJs/o, KTs, the occasional AK. 4 - Similar to my thinking in my response to #3, I don't think we're beating "nothing". Villain can still have some Kx here, but it would be good to analyze how many combos he has. I wouldn't rule out that he just flicks the rest in with his Kx and the odds were getting are so great I think we need to sheriff here. I know it feels like compounding mistakes, but at this point it's really not. The biggest mistake was on the flop. Don't mean to beat you up @FlopDeck. Interesting hand, thanks for posting!
  4. 15bb - FT vs weak villain - ICM

    Nice analysis here @turbulence. Given @FlopDeck's stats and observations on villain I think your HRC assumptions are spot on. Definitely surprised to see how big of a loser KQo is, but it makes sense at these stack sizes. Pretty hard to let this one go, especially without a short stack dynamic where we need to tighten up additionally.

    I can attest that Brady is an all-around stand-up guy and clearly is doing everything to take his game to the next level. In another place and another time, I would not hesitate to room with Brady. Brady - you might want to contact Poker Refugees as they have helped place a ton of people outside of the US. I'm sure they could connect you with the US ex-pat community and there may even be some open rooms in places like Costa Rica or Malta.

  7. Advice for building a bankroll?

    My recommendation for building a bankroll is and always will be playing live 1/2 NL in casinos and table selecting well. Easiest games to beat period with a pretty solid hourly rate even as a modest winner in the game. The strategy is very simple, plug your leaks, showdown the best hand and bet for value like crazy. If you don't have the bankroll to get started there, I would recommend seeking a stake if you can get it.
  8. A question about calling 3 bets with lower than 2/1 STP

    My inner station in position is most likely to flat pre and keep lots of dominated broadways and suited trash in OR range. When solid reg squeezes we have to fold and can't defend. That said we should have some traps here too with hands that we will stack off with like AA/KK/AK/AQs should give us enough combos to flat in this highly favorable spot with hands like KQo, JTs, ATs
  9. QQ Preflop <=30bb

    It would be very easy for me to +1 and say "uhhh yea we're going broke for 30bb with QQ", but that doesn't progress this thread any further. What does is thinking about alternatives and counter arguments. Consider the following: - What is UTG's opening range? You haven't really told us anything about Villains in these spots, but I can assume that your typical opponent is opening 8-10% here. So the question is how much equity does QQ have against a range of 8-10% - Now think about what is your 4bet range? And how much of villain's UTG range is calling off your 4-bet jam? - Let's analyze the villain with 15bb. What is their 3b ripping range? And what should your 4bet iso range look like? I'm happy to provide my thoughts and how to build strategies in these scenarios to determine optimal lines of equity, but I would love your responses first.
  10. Hand advice plz

    Disciplined fold. We should never be flatting in this spot since we don't have the proper odds to set mine and we run the risk of squeezes behind us which stinks since we can never defend 3bets with this hand either.
  11. PocketFives support not answering

    Yea I got bounce backs from that email address as well. Trying sending a message to Kevin Mathers.
  12. Hand review

    Welcome Tri4cBet. Can you help us by answering the following: 1) what is the original raiser’s range from UTG for 10 BB? 2) what is the isolators range from the CO? These are not trick questions. We need to know what you think and then we can tell you the EV of your call.

  14. 10´s facing a large 3 bet

    Need the standard stats here. In general I think their 3bets are polarized to nutted and bluffs like small pocket pairs and A5s. I don't think they are behind when they call our 4bet jam except when they call off with AK, so range looks like AA-TT, AKs, AKo and maybe AQ. I like peeling the 3bet more than 4betting to keep bluffs in with the option to get away from unfavorable Ace high or KQx type flops. I also think their value to bluff ratio is pretty high, so I don't expect too many bluffs in general. 3bet is large and ICM is huge when villain has a middle stack with 2 very vulnerable short stacks.
  15. Enough fold equity with this 4bet

    Any more info on villain... Are they solid and winning reg or spewy and losing overall? Do you have any notes or info from sites like Sharkscope, etc. Also what were they VPIPing, 3bet % and any other relevant stats like resteal or squeezes? This would give us indicators on how much they are playing back at your button opens which should be 50%+ here. Some villains never have 3bet folds here with ICM and others have tons. We need to assess which type of villain this is. Generally speaking I don't think Villain is that light here given 3 other short/vulnerable stacks at the table. My inner station wants to peel this and commit to flops where we flop significant equity (pair, 2overs with gutters, open enders, 3flushes with gutters, etc.)
