  1. I raise more initially... usually I tend to do (4 + #number of limpers)x bb as a base (so 1.75 in this case), maybe increasing a bb if the table's loose.As played, this is fairly read dependent for me. Since villain is shortstacked, if I think my image is pretty shot as far as preflop raising standards and villain knows it... I'd put him all in. I hate calling here and then shoving the flop against a C-R, whether they're weak or not. If villain is likely only doing this with a top range of hands, I'll lay this down

Villain is 55/6/0.6 through ~100 hands. Push or flat call? (and im not sure what happened on the flop bet but i believe I meant for it to be 2.25)

  5. Seen the first 3 vids so far. Found it pretty informative and interesting, especially since I'm primarily a 6-max player. As for playing the super loose players and an appropriate strategy, I'm guessing optimal strategy would make variance substantially high (i.e. countering with appropriate aggression with less than the nuts). The other option is as you mentioned in your vids is to wait on hands, which can get frustrating but is probably the most sound approach.

  6. People who are saying this is 100% anything or an easy anything are just wrong.With this hand in this spot, you can easily make valid arguments for why you should fold, call, reraise and fold to a shove or reraise and call a shove.I think I'd lean towards reraise/call shove because the button's hand looks a lot like AK/AQ/TT type hands where he wants the hand to be over with preflop because of the abnormally large 3 bet size that he made.Calling is fine too if you have that read of his hand because you know what are likely good flops for you.I think that reraise/call shove=call>reraise/fold to shove>fold.
    I agree somewhat with this, but QQ - AA is definitely in his range which I'm sure you implied. I think I'm behind his range overall, and if I flat call, my flop play is pretty difficult unless I flop a Jack. I hate getting it all in here preflop because I feel that I'm either a coinflip or behind. Again realistically the only way I'm ahead here is if villain has TT, and even then he might not be obliged to get it all in with that.
  7. By the way, under what circumstances, asside from having limpers in the pot. would anyone here raise more than pot Preflop?
    I'm not sure I understand. Raising to 0.75 on the button would have been a raise more than pot (raise of .75 into a pot .35).
  8. If you reraise preflop and bet the flop there is no way you can fold.
    Agreed, but if villain is flatcalling the 3 bet, imo it decreases the chance that he has somehting like QQ - AA and therefore we're mor elikely good on the flop. If we're shoved back preflop, I lay the hand down and don't even see a flop.

    Not saying that I agree, but if that's your thoughts, why'd you stack off on the flop? Imo, unless you have a read, hsi range is still pretty wide.Reraising preflop makes this hand much more straightforward on your behalf.
  10. Are you nuts?CO raises, button knows that the CO is going to be openin fairly wide, so buttons re-raising is also fairly wide, you need a far more compelling reason to lay down JJ PF, i pop it to #$8-9 which means we're probably going to have to call a shove as well.
    Exactly the reason I don't want to reraise here. And although button's stats are meaningless at this point, through 14 he has not raised preflop and is now reraising on the button. I think we can assume in most cases his range is fairly tight here. At this level I don't try to give players the benefit of the doubt and assume they are thinking players (i.e. I don't assume this is a light 3bet) unless I have a history with them.I think it's a call/fold scenario, curious on what other people do in this spot. I realize JJ is on the verge of a premium hand, but I think being OOP postflop is also a huge disadvantage.
  11. I don't think I can fold here. I'm either shoving here (maybe he folds his ace) or flat calling and hoping to peel off a heart since we're getting fairly good odds. Of course, we aren't getting much out of villain if he's solid even if we do complete our flush. This is pretty read dependent actually, but I'm either shoving (repping AK/AQ), or flat calling.

  12. I know we're given incredible odds to call here but I likely fold in this spot as well. Another club neglects our hand, and we're very vulernable even if we're ahead on the flop. Basically we're calling here and hoping for both players to check down, unlikely due to the action on the flop.

  13. Just started up playing multitabling NL cash again. Playing 25 NL til I find my rhythm again.PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) Poker Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FCP)MP ($24.65)Hero ($29.75)Button ($8.60)SB ($26.90)BB ($21.15)UTG ($14.90)Preflop: Hero is CO with A :ts , A :club: . 1 fold, MP raises to $1, Hero calls $1, 2 folds, BB calls $0.75.Flop: ($3.10) 4 :4h , 8 :D , 7 :D(3 players)BB bets $1.5, MP folds, Hero raises to $5, BB raises to $13, Hero ?Flat called preflop to exploit fairly aggressive postflop lag. BB came along for the ride. I know I'm going to get yelled at for that, just know most of the time I'm repopping there. I'm fairly straightforward.BB is 25/15/3 through 40MP is 34/24/4.5 through 38

  14. I probably end up calling here but the way villain played this hand screams out boat to me. I hate limping UTG but as played, flop is okay, turn I bet ~$2. River, I don't mind the size of the bet, I might have made a bit of a larger value bet since he called us down to river, but the reraise is either boat or busted heart draw (or maybe trips with a better kicker). At 5:2, I call the C-R.

  15. I reraise preflop to about $3 - $3.50. As simo said, the C-R should have been a bit higher. The shove on the flop is giving you about 3:2 to call... it could easily be two-pair, but just as easily be AQ, AJ. If he hit two pair, flat calling preflop gave him implied odds if he hit 2P like he did and knows how to exploit it. I probably call here based on the fact that its $25 NL and its likely this is Ax as well.
