      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy hand converter:

      Known players:
      BB:

      MP3:
      $25.00
      CO:
      $21.85
      BU:
      $25.00
      SB:
      $35.90

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, J.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $1, SB folds, BB raises to $3.25, Hero calls $2.25.

      Flop: ($6.60) 7, 8, 5 (2 players)
      BB bets $4.00, Hero calls $4.00.

      Turn: ($14.60) T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $7.00, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $14.60.

      Good spot for a float? Shame I was too busy to note down villain stats I think I remember he had 90-100% cbet and a high-ish resteal% at least (or I wouldnt have attempted this :P )

      Trying to shape up my non-SD winnings and winning some money postflop

      Maybe it cant be evaluated without stats :/

      Hello,

      Without any stats I might prefer to fold preflop. Also I don't like floating on 3bet pots, too expensive, you will need good stats and reads.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      Way too weak for me :P I'm at least calling

      Floating IP in 3bet (resteal situation) pots has been quite profitable for me lately. Is it really a no-no on a good board?

      Just in long run you will lose money with such floats in 3bet pots. With stats I might consider doing that, depending on the player.

      I' often fold AJ pre-flop against resteal as well. Unless I know the guy resteals a lot. AJ, KQ, KJ and the like are very complicated hands because of domination problems. I prefer calling SC than AJ for example, as suited connectors do not offer domination problems.

      Calling is not a problem though. But I consider AJ the most marginal A with which I can call a resteal. AT or worse is an insta fold without a read.


      Like veriz said, floating 3b pots is a lot more expensive, but of course the reward is bigger. But you gotta be really sure your opp can fold. Remember that he has already invested a good deal of money in the pot and might feel commited more easily than in a normal raised pot and that makes bluffs harder.

      Hello,
      It is kinda hard without stats, but I normally give him respect the first time he does that.I call it with caution.
      This board is actually pretty good to float IP.I like it and I think it is quite profitable against the TAGs on this limits.
      You dont need to shape your showdown winnings though, play poker situationally, not stats or graphs wise!
      Nice hand.
