      I think I have done a mistake calling here. According to the strategy chart I should fold, but the opponent was kind of calling station and I was sure he was bluffing. In the end I found he indeed was but did hit a flush on a river.

      First hand, barrelling the turn is not part of the MSS strategy.

      Second hand, I tend to agree TT may be enough to 4-bet BB v SB. One-on-one it's a stronger hand than against a button or especially against a cutoff opener (the SB is out of position which tightens his opening range, but this factor disappears if there is a preflop all-in). The strategy does not distinguish, but TT is a hand that is right on the border of folding or going all-in.

      Hello Mahoosive!

      Please keep the thread clean by posting 1 hand per thread , thanks in advance :)


      In the first hand we are not cbetting on the Turn because we are not sure what our fold equity is and the EV of your play is really near the break-even line


      In the second hand he rarely has a strong hand (mind you that calling station is a broad term!! he can play 70/10 or 22/9 (both stations) ) so I would shove my equity in there as well regardless what the SHC says

      Best regards,
      Gerv
