Anyone hate/like this?

  2. Why donk into the preflop raiser? bc it's multiway and you expect him to check back his air and you don't want to risk a J+ rolling off?As played I like c/c the turn and c/f the river.I imagine his value range on the turn is like sets, better tens and like JJ/QQ and similar. Of course we can narrow his range further by noting the river action.Do people bet like KQ on the turn after we donk and they float and we check?Do we have any notes or stats? bc I don't really think I am donking into an utg raise 4 way... but I dunno I suck in these spots, like 78J flop one time??
    Villain is 20/19 over 1200 handsI bet into him because I have top pair lol. What do you want me to do? C/C forever? The original raiser could easy bet AK/AQ/KQ here - what do I do when one of those cards rolls off? Hell, he could check behind on the flop and he hits a free shot to hit an overcard. I think calling c/c OOP here is so weak. I would rather just c/f.On the turn I put him on air (floated on the flop), so AJ,AQ, etc. or a middle pair: 9s, 7s, etc. My intention was to c/f the river. What do you do? Fold preflop? I think better here is best. Checking is just being passive and I think you'll lose a lot of pots to worse hands.

  4. HEM is so fcking sick now. It's like cheating...stats on basically everything. Database + 5mill hands from PTR = lulz (I haven't bought any but people are, and it's ridiculous). Even the replayer kicks ass.
    Can I paint a picture for everyone?Trystero saying exactly what he wrote, white background, Apple-commercial-esque music playing. He finishes, it immediately cuts away to the black letters: HEM. Genius right? Genius.
  5. @James. I don't really like it. I would prefer if you bet the flop (expect one person to call) and the turn is a good card to fire away again. As played I think the guy has a 9 and he's probably not going to fold because of the A on board. I'm assuming he's not a nit. If he is, then I'm more OK with the river bluff.

  6. syntonic I think you're right: he's capable of barrelling here. I'm not giving him much credit...when someone's 3-betting so widely he can show up w/all sorts of garbage. If he's a thinking player then he knows that you're weak on this board so he'll try and blow you off your fragile pair. Or he's just an aggrodonk and will just fire x 3.problem is though w/88, as we've been going over here, that you need a good board. What do you do on a AK4 board? Do you c/c him all the way down? JT4? A92? So on so forth. So many boards just suck for 88...and when you're OOP, the pair's limitations are only aggravated.basically babylondonks' long block of text
    True true. I probably would have preferred to have QJs or something.
  7. I think in general, villain dependent, 4bet/calling is > flatting OOP and folding is probably fine too. The fact is that you're going to be abused in those CO v BTN situations a ton and there's not a huge amount you can do. I mean when I 3bet the Button light in that spot I'm very very very happy when the CO flats because they're OOP and playing either fit or fold, or super spewy. So flatting basically plays into their hands perfectly imo, which isn't what we really want.
    I think you're right about this. Flatting is hugely villain dependent and generally not a good idea.
    The bolded I think is a bit flawed. I assume what you're trying to say is that sometimes it's better to play exploitably than optimally. But in this situation I think that flatting here is going to be playing sub-optimally in a manner which allows you to be exploited.
    Yes, sometimes it is better to be vulnerable. By optimal I mean: cannot be exploited. But, I don't really understand your second sentence - I'm fully aware that I can be taken advantage of when playing sub-optimally. You have to play sub-optimally if you want to take advantage of uber aggressive players. i.e. you have to call them down more.I'm certainly not trying to make this results oriented, but he showed up with J7s. I only say that to people who are giving him too much credit. This is 6max, he is on the button and he has a history of 3betting often.Edit: I'm also not trying to say that my play was 'the best.' I like how I played it against this particular villain, though, and I'm always willing to hear arguments for different plays. Like I said, I think Babs is correct in saying that this play is much more difficult to pull off to be profitable. Obviously it's easy with this flop, but on T93 and QJ2 it gets way harder.
  8. how many hands did you have on him?What was his c-bet % and did you notice any barreling tendencies. Obv here you flop the nuts and he barrels. So like I assume he showed up with TT+ and not AK or whatev.What boards are you going to c/r? are you check/shoving?What boards are you going to c/c? Are you going to call 1 and give up?I just want to know more about your plans.
    Only have 80 hands on him. 100% cbet. Why do you assume he has TT+? He can't have J10, J9, A10, A9, etc.? I also think every pocket pair is in his range. He's 3-betting as much as people open raise.I don't know exactly what boards I would be C/Ring on. In my mind, I figured he would fold if I 4bet him preflop - I just felt like 8s are way ahead of his raising range and if he has a monster, then so be it. I was pretty much ready to hold on to my pair. I would probably C/R a safe looking board to just take it down on the flop, and if an overcard hit, I was going to C/C.Edit: Yeah, I think most people can agree this is normally a 4bet. I guess I'm trying to argue that the optimal play is not always the best play.
  9. Villain is LAG. His 3bet frequency was like 19. Anyone prefer to 4bet preflop?Hero (CO) ($100)Button ($100)SB ($105.20)BB ($89.90)UTG ($126.75)MP ($198)Preflop: Hero is CO with 8club.gif, 8spade.gif2 folds, Hero bets $3, Button raises to $10, 2 folds, Hero calls $7Flop: ($21.50) 6diamond.gif, 6heart.gif, 8diamond.gif(2 players)Hero checks, Button bets $11, Hero calls $11Turn: ($43.50) 10heart.gif(2 players)Hero checks, Button bets $18, Hero calls $18River: ($79.50) 9club.gif(2 players)Hero checks, Button bets $61 (All-In), Hero calls $61 (All-In)Total pot: $201.50 | Rake: $3
