      not playing NL 200 but I won't play AQo against this raise as shorty. even a loose player sometimes holds a hand.

      Gremlin68, you are playing against his RANGE :) in the long run it can be profitable or not. Doesn`t matter what he hold now.

      About the hand.
      9.2% PFR gives us breakeven equity with AQs (50.6%)
      17 hand is not a sample, but if we suspect the opponent has a loose tendency, we should put him on something like 12-15PFR, which gives us 53.9%-55.7% equity. Add fold equity + position and go ahead. The only thing I didn`t assume are players behind. From the button it looks nicer)

      however, I would go broke on the flop. The board is drawy and with his range he could hit the board in many ways, while still having the worse hand.

      Thanks a lot.
      Flop looked ugly and I was already suffering some bad beats so I decided to play weak tight.
      btw. Wondering why grabem doesn't post my stack? It's not the first time.

      grabem doen`t work perfectly, as far as I heard. But you can do it manually, inserting your stack size as a comment.

      @098799

      Honestly I would like to request you to post more stats about your opponents if you have any, since otherwise is kind of hard to give you a good evaluation.

      The way you play can be great when you have specific reads (stats) of your opponents, but it also can be just a waste of money vs. unknown. ;)

      This is an example. He could hold suited connecters, Pocket Pairs or a Monster here. And if we reraise here depends how much fold equity we have.

      I'll remember that.
      I mean, I didn't use Grab'em a lot in past and still getting used to it. I don't think I can still find that specific hand, but I'll try to post as many reads / stats as I can from now on.

      Yep for sure you right. Playing NL25 I'm playing against unknown most of the time.

      Just starting to use the stats I get it will take some time to use it to set opponents on ranges. At the moment experimenting a lot with Equilator to get a feeling for the ranges, equities of several hands etc.

      Therefore I'm always appreciate your analysis with equities, odds to see if some plays are +EV or -EV.

      So for my progress it's also very interesting to think about 098799's hands on NL 200 even though possibly not using it in my limit. but in some hands doing so it is a real progress in my play.

      So keep on, I appreciate berliner's and yours evaluations very much.

      no need to say you're doing a very nice job here. So many thx :)

      It's also nice to see someone getting interested in your hands, so keep up the good work, Gremlin68, so we can meet at some higher limit table someday ;) .

      Most of our reraises = pushs. So do not hesitate to push all in when reraising (max. fold equity).
