he only minraise preflop is really a bad strategy to abide by. you're getting reverse implied odds to call and stacks aren't near deep enough to be doing this, you shouldn't be 3betting this hand in the first place.

Five-Way All-In Pot Shipped To Sohrabi; Three Players Eliminated


What. A. Hand.

An innocent raise from a player under the gun to 1,100 started the action over on Table 443 in the Purple Section of the Amazon Room before play folded over to a player in middle position. That player moved all in for 11,700. Right behind the shove, Mac Sohrabi was in the hijack seat and reraised all in for 23,100. Then, the player on the button called all in for 16,550 before action slid over to Yucel Eminoglu in the big blind.

Eminogla tanked and tanked, before eventually getting the clock called on him by not one, but two others at his table. After about 30 seconds, he shoved a giant stack of T5,000 chips into the middle, having all players in the hand well covered. As if four players weren't enough excitement for this pot, the original raiser from under the gun snap-called and created a five-way all-in pot!

Here's what we saw:

Under-the-gun player: Posted ImagePosted Image
Middle-position shove: Posted ImagePosted Image
Sohrabi: Posted ImagePosted Image
Button: Posted ImagePosted Image
Eminoglu: Posted ImagePosted Image

The player under the gun snap-called all in for around 40,000 in chips holding the Posted ImagePosted Image, but it was Sohrabi who held the best hand going into the battle with his pocket queens.

Following a runout on the flop, turn and river of Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image, Sohrabi's queens held strong and he was awarded the main pot. He moved to nearly 100,000. Eminoglu was able to scoop a side pot from the player who held the Posted ImagePosted Image and move to 150,300 in chips. The other three players were all eliminated.

Would the advice be the same if you are playing a lot with the same players ?

I can see a situation where you are playing a lot with the same players and if some of them notice that you bet/fold a lot on the river that they will exploit that with river bluff raises.
ya, i mean obviously you're gonna have to change value/bluff ranges v players you play w/ a lot who might keep realize what you are doing.

I think with the basis of the question is someone who is looking for river value v villains at a local casino or card room, who are never good enough to bluff-raise the river.

Gadjet, the bet/folding for value is usually the best way to get value. One, villains can think we are bluffing at a good card and will pay off w/ lessor holdings. Another reason, is that when we check the river when a draw card comes in, we can lose value to weaker hands that are going to check back. Most villains won't value bet thin and will check back when bad cards come.

Again, this all comes down to player dependency, but it is a line that you should try more and you should see a good amount of success and a higher ROI b/c players are just not good enough to bluff in these situations.

edit: i feel like i rambled and repeated myself a lot in this but w/e

Good reasons to both flat and raise on Turn here. Nothing wrong with mixing up your play.

Calling Turn allows us to see if we can flush out 'cheap' and also opponent can fire 3rd bullet if bluffing. We have some showdown value if we choose to call this River bet, but I think I am still inclined to fold to this size of bet. He has to know we have something but is willing to put money in there to see it. The obvious 'bad' result here is that we hit the flush and don't get any more money out of him while being slightly out priced to actually make the call.

Raising the Turn certainly doesn't put our hand face up with so much out there, so it does have some merit. I don't think we are in a position to have to call a shove either. A raise to $375 or $400 does save you money if you can check down this River, but you don't get to see it (and make a better hand) if you get shoved back on. I agree that a shove doesn't come from a made full house, but it very well could come from a 7x hand that doesn't think you made a flush on the Turn.

I probably still lean towrds flatting the Turn and folding the River but can't argue strongly against any of the other action we have proposed either.
