  1. Are you suggesting bet-folding to the min-raise?That seems like the worst of all options. you don't think we have enough outs to see the river?--cm

  4. So by the river, there is $80 in the pot.And Villain has ~$170 behind.If a brick hits and Villain bets, do we call or raise?If we end up getting it all in on the river, am I really ahead of much at showdown?--cm
  5. Just starting to convert from limit to no-limit cash games.So I'm a bit unfamiliar with these "big" relevant stacks.In limit, I would push push push here, knowing that even if I am up against a cooler, I can only lose so much.Should I be a lot more passive in this no-limit game?Or is my line below too weak?What should my plan be on different rivers?As always, poker is an easy game when you are familiar with your opponent's playing style.So let's assume no read here.Please advise.--CM==============================PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00 BB (5 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from
  6. In a random hand. the reason we should often be hesitant to raise is the ole "win one-lose two" scenario.If we are ahead, we win the one value bet.If we are behind, we get raised back and lose two bets.But that isn't the case here.In fact, it's the opposite!One more raise on the turn caps the action, so we can't get raised back.And with BB hangin around, paying off the world, our raise actually gains two bets of value.This combo means I am capping the turn every single time.Unless I read him as a maniac, I will likely just call the river if SB leads out again.Note: raising the river instead of
  7. And I claim that any player that is poor enough to only be playing his own two cards, is also poor enough to do stuff like bluffing here with overs or overprotecting his pocket 7's.--cm
  8. I'm suggesting it could be even less.If Villain has any read on you whatsoever, and knows that you are the type to throw away overpairs in these situations, he should be firing at you non-stop.It's huge +ev for him to do so.When thinking about reads on our opponents, it's important not to forget about what their reads on us probably are.And we can't let them take advantage of those reads.--cm
  9. Before the funky turn bet, our plan here was to get a bet in on every street.So let's continue with the plan.Villain's donk bet is good for us.Because now, not only does the bet get in, but we also get to close the action.So we don't have to fear the dreaded check-raise on this coordinated board.Call the turn.And be happy if he leads the river again so you can call that too.Otherwise, put in the bet yourself.Resist the temptation to fold at any point.--CM
  10. What range of hands do you put Villain on after his turn bet?A key point no one seems to be addressing is that your overpair is completely and totally disguised.This means that Villain is rightly going to assume you are weak.And he could easilly be- using his position and your passiveness to buy the pot- value betting his Top Pair assuming it must be bestIf you had shown aggression at any point, and he countered with more aggression, you can often lay down the overpair.But when you keep it a secret like this, folding blindly is almost always scared poker.Point: when you are going to "trick" yo
  11. Two very different issues being discussed in this hand.- Preflop decision- River decision.Here are my thoughts on the first....Reasons for limping:- We have a hand that plays well in multi-way pots. Limping encourages other limpers. And we would love to have the whole table playing this pot with me. And since our opponents are microstake crazies who typically make loose calls and overplay their hands, we could potentially win a large pot given the proper board. - It's cheap. It's less than 1% of my buyin. If I have to limp-fold, that doesn't hurt us too bad at all.= This combination of reason
  12. .... UTG checked, MP bet again, CO called, I overcalled, UTG overcalled.MP = 88CO = 66UTG = 55All three had a heart.--cm
  13. Ahhh, I see.I agree that this is an important difference.But I certainly don't feel that it means we are more likely behind.In fact, since Villain only cold called preflop, this decreases the chances that he has the overpair to our Jacks.And the odds of him having a Ten becomes significantly greater.Because we have all see numerous players calling a preflop raise in position with any suited broadway cards.Based on this information, the chances of gaining value against a villain with a lesser pair have improved.And the chances of being behind have decreased.This encourages me even more to raise
  14. I see people frequently presume that when a villain folds to their value bet, it means they did something wrong.And that simply isn't the case.Because there will be many instances in which our opponent just doesn't have a hand to play on with.So we were not going to get any more value from him, no matter what we did.You just have to make your bet with your monster, and hope he has something to call you down with.If he doesn't have that Ace, then the hand will be over.If he does, he will pay us off.--CM
  15. My thoughts....Without a specific read, folding overpairs to basic continuation bets must be bad poker.When we have Jacks, what type of flop are we hoping for?This one is about as good as we're going to get.So if we fold here without any further information, we probably shouldn't be playing the hand in the first place.And a couple of c-bets from the preflop raiser is not reliable information to tell us we are likely behind.Following this reasoning, if we're not going to fold our Jacks as is, I think we have to start off by asking ourselves one question:If we had additional information that we
