      Poker Stars $5.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players - View hand 2035483
      DeucesCracked Poker Videos Hand History Converter

      MP: $20.85 - VPIP: 61, PFR: 32, 3B: 27, AF: 8.5, Hands: 151
      Hero (CO): $6.31 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 19, 3B: 3, Hands: 132 (from villain's POV)
      BTN: $14.21 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 17, 3B: 6, AF: 1.0, Hands: 132
      SB: $5.00 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 0, AF: 1.2, Hands: 134
      BB: $5.00 - VPIP: 13, PFR: 10, 3B: 4, AF: 4.5, Hands: 126
      UTG: $12.42 - VPIP: 32, PFR: 31, 3B: 13, AF: 2.0, Hands: 68

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is CO with K :club: K :diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, BTN raises to $0.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.35 well, he sees my nitty 3b range, my 4b range is even nittier. I think I'd get isolated vs AA with a 4b If we get AI, I'm probably an underdog. proof

      Flop: ($1.07) A :spade: K :spade: 5 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, planned to ch.r vs AK.... but I could have 4bet vs that preflop... maybe he wont fold that either.. My line is inconsistent, yuk

      No, no, no :) Don't do that. Why do you love playing monsters OOP postflop?

      Just be aggressive! Why do you think your 3-bet / 4-bet are so nitty? Because you play passively even monsters :) That's not good. You can earn much more if you play them aggressively.

      For the villain 3-bet/fold is not that easy as well. Don't think he will fold everything but AA!

      Another thing to consider, even if he 3-bets light, people usually do it with speculative hands! So he either will flop a straight and have your stack, or fold the flop without much stress.

      Be aggressive.

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: looks fine.

      Postflop: CO vs BTN this is too nitty. AA only? really? We don't even play full ring.

      Villain will most likely stack off AK, QQ+ if not looser.

      And we can even 4-bet smaller to "induce" if you are that afraid of him folding too much.

      As played we can check/raise the flop small or ck/call and raise the turn.

      Copy/paste fail there.

      Yes, the entire reply is about Preflop :)

      As a general comment, I doubt most opponents on these stakes are using poker-tracking software.

      He probably sees you like every other opponent.

      hmm, it would be very interesting to have a statistic about this

      Ok, I get it, that 100bb deep HU we do not call 3bets OOP.

      But if this was 250bb deep, would it still be a 4b?

      It's opponent dependent.

      Against unknown opponents if you 4-bet and they 5-bet or shove it will be harder to call but at these limits people still overvalue their hands too much deep. But as a general rule it becomes more of a call.

      250BB deep you can play more 3-bet pots because of the bigger SPRs.
