  1. I disagree with this given the BB can cripple us. If you raise to 400, SB shoves and BB overshoves then you are at best racing against two players with overs and crushed by everything else and can fold. Shoving on the button puts our stack unnecessarily at risk. I think OP played this correctly.
  2. Edit: thought Hero minraised pf, apologies...Too many hands that beat us that call this...not making this play without very solid read.
  3. Multitabling so no real reads, no stats. Villain seems competent over about an hour's worth of play. I c-bet a lot, about 90% of the time. I've leaked a bit in calling too many hands so he may notice that if he's paying attention. After he calls the 3-bet pf, I'm putting him on 1010+ and AK. Obviously I'm only really worried about AA given what I know so what's the best way to get value...I think I sometimes lose value on these hands because I get too anxious on a dry board and give a villain with a marginal hand a reason to fold...PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (8 handed) - Poker-
  4. If I was the villain in this hand, I'm definitely not putting you on a 5. Turn raises and river bets are almost never bluffs at this level so I think the worst you are looking at is 10x or 88+. A river raise will probably be called by any slow played big pair so I guess this is a math question on whether raising is +EV given his range. I'm kind of nitty so I would probably call. I'm definitely not folding.
  5. I thought about betting $1.80 on the turn but to accomplish what? Yes, charge the draws but am I going to get a relatively weak A to fold or am I going to get value out of a weaker hand than mine? It just kind of felt like pot bloating in a marginal situation. I might also have been affected by an aggrodonk monkey spewtard performance I had at the end of a relatively long session on Monday and playing tighter than I should have as a result.
  6. Jesus H. people. He's 23, who gives a shit if he goes busto and has to go back to the midwest and go into the family trucking (whatever) business.Steve, speaking from experience, get the f*** out. Go. Your 20's are for, well, being in your 20's. Go do shit. My guess is you'll find out it's a whole lot different than you expected. So what. Be a valet, dishwasher, stripper pole cleaner...whatever. Bankroll this, living expenses that, whether internet pros can beat live donks...who cares. None of that will mean shit when you are married and the only story you have to tell your kids is ho
  7. Not sure I like getting it all in with 9 outs to something less than the nuts. I also agree that calling OOP is gross. I know you said it was weak but I think I am folding.
  8. No reads on villain, I am multitabling and I don't recall any remarkable hands will him. Should I fire this turn or is a check OK looking to get a cheap showdown? What do we think of the donkbet on the river after the passive play on the flop and turn?

  9. Any previous pf 3-bets from him that you remember? A 3-bet from the BB would be AQ+, 99+ most of the time (discounting doing this with air since I don't think that third barrel is ever J2o). You've played this hand pretty passively so does it make sense that he could be leading the river as a sort of blocking bet w/ 99-JJ, AK to either fold out a hand that potentially beats him (TT-QQ) or to avoid making a tough call if you bet?I agree that he's never getting KK+ to fold but this bet can fold out any hand QQ or worse.
  10. I'm not sure you can count on someone on the button who flats a MP raise then flats a BB 3-bet to spaz off his chips. Seems like you have to bet something to get him to make a passive call down if he feels he has something to show down.
  11. You don't want to be multiway after the flop so c/r the flop to get heads up. AA loses value the more players you let stay in the hand.
  12. Call then minbet the flop...villain will be so confused he'll just fold.
  13. Thanks for the replies. I bet 800 and he folded. I'm working on trying to get more value from my big hands. I don't think I was inducing this particular villain into doing anything with a draw or smaller pair regardless of how I played it because of his nature but I think for more aggressive opponents, I like looshle's weakish looking bet sizing option better.
  14. Played it, cashed in about 2000 place. Not sure it was the most productive 2.5 hours but with a 29/1 ROI, I guess it's not bad.
