      So, I'm going over snowies cold call ranges right now, when I notice this week they're significantly (some spots 10% change, some spots 50%) different to lasts weeks ranges. Near perfect GTO yep, but different next week! ;)

      I think the nl100 games on ipoker are softer than the nl50 games... go figure :s_confused:

      Look at this fucker. Serves him right for his ridiculous 5bet.

      What was roughly your plan postflop if you dont hit your set?

      And why should he 5bet bigger?

      My plan was to stack off preflop. But I thought calling his min 5b kept his range wider. Then I was going to stack off at least any non K or A high flops.

      I think his 5bet sucks because:
      • If he has a value hand he lets me see a flop given good pot odds and realize some of the equity of my 4bet bluffs which normally get to realize zero equity verses a 5b shove.
      • If he has any decent 5bet bluffs here, they have 30% equity verse my stacking off range so he should be calling them off.
      • If he has bluffs he loses fold equity by 5 betting small.
      • Given pot odds, even if he's only doing this with KK+ I could call my entire 4betting range and stack of on any board postflop +EV.

      dude. That post was wrong on so many levels.

      Let me see if I follow your logic correctly:

      1) Lets say Villain has a 5bet bluffing hand
      2) He always has 30% equity against you (?)
      3) Therefore, he must call (?)
      4) Therefore, he is not making the right play

      ...

      If a given hand is good enough to call your 4bet, it should not be in his 5bet bluff range. The hands in his bluff range are the strongest hands that are not quite strong enough to call.

      [*]Given pot odds, even if he's only doing this with KK+ I could call my entire 4betting range and stack of on any board postflop +EV.


      Are you suuuuuure about that?

      1) Lets say Villain has a 5bet bluffing hand
      2) He always has 30% equity against my stacking off range. Unless he can see my hole cards (?)
      3) Therefore, he must call (?)
      4) Therefore, he is not making the right play

      ...

      If a given hand is good enough to call your 4bet, it should not be in his 5bet bluff range. The hands in his bluff range are the strongest hands that are not quite strong enough to call. Hands like A2s/22 have better equity verse a stacking off range than the strongest hands that can't call a 4b.


      [*]Given pot odds, even if he's only doing this with KK+ I could call my entire 4betting range and stack of on any board postflop +EV.

      Ok this one isn't right. Let's change it to, I could call my entire 4b range and see a flop +ev given pot odds.

      I don't really tilt much, but I do have a question.

      What are some common tilt or mindset errors that you see that I could look out for on others to exploit at the tables?

      Well i would look for timing tells and when they show up with a range you didn't expect. Those are the two most common tells I would say, this will be more obv vs regs ofc. Since you play Rush it will be much harder because you get moved around every hand.

      If anything else comes up don't hesitate to ask :)

      Hi jules97,

      epic shark picture :D

      I'll be helping you out in this Boot Camp with topics like procrastination, motivation, laziness, productivity, focus while playing, putting in more volume/studying, creating habits that stick, etc.

      Could you please tell me:

      1) What is your #1 issue in those areas
      2) What did you try so far to resolve it?
      3) What worked and what didn't?

      Thank you,

      -Primoz
