    Hey, about that flat active 3-bettor with QQ, lets say that turn is A, and river K, you still calling river shove ?

    And in stakes are play most regs have like 9-12% resteal, are they active enough ? Can I use the same flat ranges you recommend ?

    Thx for video
  • Leatherass9


    With QQ when the turn is an ace or a king, that gets tricky because we know they barrel a lot in those spots, but they also have it a lot! I guess in general we can say that the tighter and more straightforward they are, then the more likely u can be to fold. And the looser and more aggro they are, the more likely you can be to call. General I know, but it is really hard to give a perfect answer to that question.

    Against a 9-12% 3 bet, yes I do think those flatting ranges can be OK

    about 3 barrel bluff...
    On what limit we should start using this call down ?

    Usually I find these "lectures" pretty boring too. But I must say this is one great video series! I always felt we needed more content about 3b pots, where I think most of us have trouble with but potentially could gain a lot of profit from. Looking forward to part 3 and thank you Leatherass & Pokerstrategy!

    You're welcome!

    Both parts so far have excellent contents and are just awesome to watch. I have to admit, after watching the first 5min of the first part I thought I'd doze off but honestly, I doubt anyone could explain these concepts better and you've helped me raise my game in these spots! Hope to see more theory content from you!

    Hey, you have mentioned your calling/3betting range oop, but how do you handle offsuit broadway type of hands? Calling them might get you in all sort of troubles and they lack semi-bluffing abilities in 3bet pots. However blockers and generally descent equity makes them a natural choice to 3bet for a lot of players.
  • EverSteel


    hey Leatherass,

    a q from the Russian community:
    - you say that your 3bet range OOP is polarised: connectors, weakish hands and premium hands. Premiums are less likely, and adequate opponents will eventually notice that. Therefore to avoid getting a pile of 4bets we're gonna need to push connectors from time to time. So, how often do you push connectors? Or is it that I dont understand the issue and we dont need to do such pushes?
  • EverSteel


    another question
    1) what's your opinion on calling 3bets OOP with monsters AA-KK?
    2) let's assume we did 3bet K8s IP and got called by a pretty straightforward villain. Board went T82 rainbow. Does it still make sense to 3barrel-bluff on this board or we should rather try to get to the SD? if the latter, then how - cbet flop and check later, or check flop and then depending on the action?

    About the Mississippi bluff. Don't try it vs regs who can't fold top pair or it becomes the Mississippi spew.
    It may be an overall good play versus good thinking regs but I'm going to stop myself from doing it unless I have history with an opponent and he knows I usually only do it with the nuts. One try so far and -$120.
    And no, I'm not saying it's your fault, I just implemented it badly :)

    I love this serie
  • RiseandStrive


    :D U R one funny guy Leatherass :D

    nice laugh ;) well, It's seems to me the info U R giving is more than useful and also it's seems to me from yours previous vids that You are rocking The House!! :) And it would be lovely and nice to see in at least 1 h video how to turn a made hand into a bluff - more in OOP spots, more specific - that hero is PFR and plays oop. This could be interesting topic ;)

    I know this was posted a while ago, but i still find it very very very GOOD. Ty

    I'm really enjoying your videos Leatherass. Overall they have improved my game alot, I'm still just a little fishy though.

    In this video you say that in position you should not be a once and done guy, but should barrel the turn and river as well. How do you balance this line? Do you tend to barrel more on certain boards (dry boards?) and give up on others. What about if you have a marginal hand your self? Check behind?
