  1. HEM's tourney support isn't nearly as good as its cash game support. The HUD is still useful, but the actual interface for tournaments isn't nearly as polished as PT3s (as of 1 month ago, I've stopped playing poker for a while so correct me if I'm wrong).As far as cash games go, HEM >>> PT3. Less buggy, easier to use, and I think it costs less too?

  2. Regardless, he probably will check back the turn with the 4 flush out there. If you truly believe that he is going to shove QTss on the turn here, then yeah you have to call. But I still don't know how plausible that is, and he's going to have the Qd or Td with that hand a fair amount of the time anyways.
    Yeah that was pretty much my reasoning for check folding. Just wanted to confirm. Thanks for the responses.P.S. I don't know how anyone can lay that down on the flop...

What's our plan from here given what we believe to be villain's range.

  4. I can't really prove this or try it out, but I think this is right just the way I think it in my head (I know thats not very reassuring lol). Basically thinking behind it is that the dice roll probabilities make up a matrix that is 6n large because every possible roll adds a new dimension. So one roll is a single row matrix of 6 cells, two rolls is a 6 x 6 matrix, three rolls is a 6 x 6 x 6 matrix etc. Average score for n rolls:(6n + 5n + 4n + 3n + 2n + 1n) / 6nSomeone actually try it out and let me know if it works out. Nite

  5. Just a quick note, I've been using Hold'em Manager for the past month, and I don't think I can go back. It's overall just very efficient and runs more smoothly, and the HUD is really customizable with a variety of stats, and just a lot of things to play around with. I sometimes do have problems if I get switched on a table in a tournament, since the HUD doesn't automatically update (maybe its just me, dont know), but I primarily play cash games anyways so I haven't really tried figuring it out. It's tournament support is much worse than PT, so if youre primarily a tourney player until HM comes out with some updates, don't bother thinking of switching over.

    What is the best way to convert Hand Histories out of HEM for posting? With PT I used the Flop Turn River converter and it worked great, but that doesn't recognize the HEM histories.Help!
    Right click the specific hand and select Export Selected Hands to Hard Drive. The exported format is the exact PokerStars HH instead of the modified version. Bit more work, but meh.
  6. Am I really weak if I'm actually considering outright folding on the flop? We're behind AA/KK from the getgo, TT and JJ got there. The draw is incredibly drawy, with us catching none of it (other than the runner runner 3rd nuts). I think that by contuining in this hand, we make a lot less when we're ahead, but lose a lot more when we're behind here. Correct me if I'm wrong, because I think it sounds weak, but I don't really think calling is optimal here, especially since we're essentially going to the turn with a good chance we're behind and no outs.And I have no idea about preflop. I would probably have 4 bet, but I think some of the discussion here has made me reconsider.

  7. Started playing on more of a regular basis this month. Been really caught up with work and just life in general to actually put in time, but started playing 50 NL regularly in an attempt to get back some sort of cash game rhythm before moving up, and just playing more.JULY RESULTS----------------Cash +400 Playing NL 50, 8k HandsTourney/SNGs ~+250 12 tabling 6.50 /9s for the first few days of the monthWCOOP Steps: Turned 7$ into a Step 4 ticket, plan to enter the $215 6 maxStarting to get back into a rhythm playing the cash games. Wasn't really playing great poker til maybe about 2 weeks ago, did some reading to get back to the basics and everything came together from there. Hopefully can put in more than the 5 hours a week I put in right now in August.AUGUST GOALS------------------1) Play 2k more hands at NL 50 to fix a couple of leaks in my CO and UTG+1 ranges.2) 15k hands at NL100 at 5 ptbb/100 (+1500)3) Attempt to start regularly playing Razz at $1/$2 and possibly move up if I can remember how not to be a complete donk at the game

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (5 handed) Poker Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FCP)UTG ($50)Hero ($50)Button ($37.35)SB ($46.35)BB ($52.45)Preflop: Hero is MP with J :D , J :ts . 1 fold, Hero raises to $2, 2 folds, BB calls $1.50.Flop: ($4.25) 3 :D , 9 :club: , 3 :4h(2 players)BB checks, Hero bets $3, BB raises to $8.5, Hero ?No reads.Basically any decent sized raise commits me, folding is too weak, calling makes me feel dirty. Standard play is?

  9. Basically, it's ALWAYS awful to flat call a raise even in position with a completely garbage RIO hand. Even if you're trying to play postflop. You don't need to practice your postflop play in position with this hand because when you're seriously playing you'll never play this hand.Oh, and if you play 50/45 over a long period of time you can expect to lose a lot of money. I really do not think its possible to be profitable playing that loose even if you are super aggressive.
    I have no doubt that it's unprofitable. I'm hoping that it will help change my postflop play for the better, since I feel one of my major weaknesses is playing the turn and river. I'm rolled for 100NL but haven't moved up because I think my postflop play isn't strong enough. I feel like I'm a winning player at 50NL, but that most of money is from good preflop play, and not good aggressive play from the turn onwards. I'm trying to correct that by playing situations and my opponents rather than my cards, and then implementing it back into my TAG strategy. If anyone has any advice, I'd be glad to hear it.
  10. I should have noted in the post to ignore my preflop play. I was playing something like 40/6 for an hour yesterday to try and just purely play postflop (basically raising if I was first in, but flat calling in position a lot and trying to steal pots postflop). I ended the session down a buy-in over 4 tables, but it served its purpose. I'm thinking of moving down to 25NL and trying to play ~ 50/45 and adapting to bigger pots postflop.Anyways, range of hands you put villain on (calling range + folding range), just for my own affirmation? A friends whose play I respect and myself had differing opinions about this. Thanks for the responses.

I'm assuming the standard play is to push here?Edit: Converter messed up I think. Changed pot value on river.

  13. I'm shoving here, minus a read that villain likes to "do you have an ace or overpair?" minraise, which this kind of looks like. Risking peeling off a flush card, I might try to get villain to hang himself on the turn by 2nd barrelling since our hand really isn't too much danger by anything we beat minus the flush draw. But most of the time, I'm getting it in.

  14. I'd probably call off your read. Without a read, just from my own experience with weird shoves, its almost exclusively a pocket pair or AK. Usually a pocket pair on the good side (for you) of TT. Oh and uh convert (check sticky topic) hands, and never post results. Before you get yelled at.

  16. It's 180k to call into about 315k. You need about 37% equity against his range.Lets assume he is pretty nitty:
    equity 	win 	tie 		  pots won 	pots tied	Hand 0: 	59.793%	  57.93% 	01.86% 		 172607388 	  5540034.00   { QQ+, AKs, AKo }Hand 1: 	40.207%	  38.35% 	01.86% 		 114253440 	  5540034.00   { QQ }

    It's a snapcall. I actually think his range is probably more like:

    equity 	win 	tie 		  pots won 	pots tied	Hand 0: 	43.555%	  42.35% 	01.20% 		 213212160 	  6051546.00   { 99+, AQs+, AKo }Hand 1: 	56.445%	  55.24% 	01.20% 		 278102124 	  6051546.00   { QQ }

    Yeah I had him at TT+, AK, maybe AQ. Thanks. I need to install Stove on this computer, I'm kind of rusty with the math off the top nowadays
