      preflop: i dont want to isolate myslef vs better hands
      flop: Here i dont know how to play vs unknow when i dont know how much he cbet. Just thought that we have about 40% equity vs sets and op so with some FE it can be +ev move....is my sizing ok? or how do you calculate sizing for c/r?
      turn: Not a good card for barrel. Our equity drosps a lot. So check fold?

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 25.25% 25.25% 0.00% AdKd
      MP3 74.75% 74.75% 0.00% TT+, 66-55

      river: As played i put him mostly on over pair maybe Tx so i go for thin value bet.

      Hello,

      Preflop I would definitely 3bet here.

      I don't mind check/raising on the flop. We have two overcards and flushdraw so even if we get called we have decent equity.

      Turn isn't really a good card so I wouldn't mind check/folding here since I doubt that we have a lot of FE here.
      If we go for a bet we have to shove most of the rivers.

      As played, I like betting the river but I prefer shoving.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi!


      Are we playing 3bet/5bet vs unknown? The same applies to AKo?

      Hi.

      Preflop: I think preflop flat is my preferred option. People aren't going to 4bet light too often when you 3bet vs their UTG range. And I doubt he defends too often. How often are you actually 3bet bluffing vs a UTG range anyway? if your image is solid in general, then I think you should not 3bet AKs here.

      Nothing here indicates that he is a huge fish that will call your 3bet light.

      Flop: Check/raising is fine. I think c/c is fine too and is my preferred option. We can expect him to barrel our A/K outs and try to rep those hands. With a weaker hand like AdXd then I think c/r is better since our kickers aren't so good and we have fewer overcard outs that our opponent may try to bluff at.

      Turn: I would probably continue barreling.

      River: I would just bet half pot and hope to get called by TX/QQ/JJ.

      Thanks.

      This is why you prefere to x/c T?


      Stół: T:spade: 6:diamond: 5:diamond:
             Equity  Wygrana  Podział
      MP2    41.54%   41.54%    0.00% { AdKd }
      MP3    58.46%   58.46%    0.00% { TT+, 66-55 }


      Maybe he don't want to push JJ so we have even less Equity.

      What about T like: 7d,8d,9d,4d nad his XB on T how much would you bet? To simplify lets assume we have 2$ on R would you bet something like 1$ or 1.55 becuase he would call it anyway.

      What about if we hit something on R, FD, K or A you play x and let him xb or you donk or what? Let's assume you don't have any specific read about his barreling range

      I don't like c/r F c/c T. You either c/c F c/c T or c/r F and bet T. I just think flatting AK is very profitable.

      What if he 3bets you on the flop? What would you do? shove? Doesn't seem good if he rarely 3bet bluffs, we isolate ourselves vs overpairs and sets. Fold? That would be a real pity, to fold a hand as strong as this.

      I also think playability is really high even if we call. We can virtually c/c any turn card. We may even consider the option of c/c F c/r T if he barrels a Jack or Queen and we turn a combodraw.

      Whatever you are writing below, are you referring to c/r Flop or c/c Flop?

      I am writting about c/c I don't like the idea of c/r here. I meant x/c F with equilab calculation. I've never thought about x/r F and x/c T

      Well from your equilab calculation, it tells us that we cannot check/raise for value on the Flop (We are on a draw so I think that's pretty obvious).

      I don't think the Flop equity vs his value range is too important. When we are semi-bluffing, we are hoping that our opponent folds. If he doesn't fold his JJ/QQ/KK on the Flop, what about betting the Turn and/or River? Would he then put you on a set and fold?

      All the equity calculations you showed there just tell me that we have a profitable c/c on the Flop. When you c/r and semibluff, your main considerations should be whether you can push him off some better hands.
