      The board was sooo dry on the flop, so I slowplayed in hope one of oponents will raise.
      I wonder was my game here correct, since I shoved AI on river in hope and oponent will or think I am bluffin or have an A himself.
      Should I play this differently ?

      Hi,

      NH.

      flop is ok. you could start betting PSB but this is also fine
      turn: ok
      river. Shoving is ok and he will call Ax. You could bet 0.50 so he can shove over you.

      This depends on how aggresive he is.

      The overbet on the River is a bit ugly. I mean if you start minbetting the Flop as in 10cents, you might see some light peels. Checking is also fine

      But SPR is like 6 so if you bet pot Turn & bet pot river, you get 3 SPR in the pot w hich means you miss out 3SPR in value

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/glossary/SPR-Stack-to-Pot-Ratio_1728/

      Quoted from that link:

      The stack-to-pot ratio is defined as the ratio of your stack in relation to the pot. Also, the SPR is an indicator of your risk/reward ratio.
      The pot is $20 and you have $80 left. Your SPR is therefore: $80/$20 = 4.
      The higher the SPR, the more can you still win or lose from the pot. The SPR is also helpful when evaluating your playing style: for instance, the higher your SPR, the more profitably can you play your draws.
      Effectively everything around poker evolves around SPR Tampa so I don't know how you don't know it :o

      Hi Gerv,

      Never read about it :f_mad: I did a quick scan on the articles and couldnt find it either ?( Didnt knew the abbreviation too.

      Well I think I understand it (a bit). I use it to plan the bet sizes. Other stuff I calculate with equity as implieds are not that common in SSS (strategy is mostly about killing implieds).

      Are there articles about it?
