Ge5sterne brings us the fifth part of Gameplanning. At the iPoker tables, ge5sterne begins a sessionreview where he shows his discontent with the lack of adaptation by his opponents to his three-bets, and quite rightly so, starts to punish them for it. Stay tuned for the second part of the sessionreview coming at you soon!

    Please, no more than 4 6max tables in the future. It's pretty hard to keep track of the action.

    #3 He can stop the video whenever he wants, comon...

    Min. 46
    Don't you think a regular would second barrel often on a Q/K/A turn as a bluff?

    Hand at Min 13, where you have 88.
    I would check/raise the flop, because he bets small and our hand hasnt much potential to improve.
    My intension would be to protect against OC.
    What do you think about a little raise, like 3x ?
  • huma91


    With the 55-hand at min 7': do you never consider 3betting in the BB vs. SB-Open, just to avoid spots, like the one that occured?
    It's likely, you have the best hand preflop, but there are hardly any boards on the flop, we're happy to see.
  • MagnumLemon


    On the other hand, it's very delightful, that you don't overanalyse spots for the usual 10 minutes like in other session reviews

    @4: Depends on the reg obviously. I assume most Regs will be barreling AK,AT here, as well as any Club-Draw. But as I asid in the video, me holding the A of clubs and the J of clubs being on board, eliminates a significant portion of drawing hands a tight opener can have in these positions. Also I did not want to assume that he will often give up on the river. So my decision was basically to call twice or fold here (unless I have a read that he doesnÄ'f often fire the third one) -> "gameplanning" multiple streets ;)

    @5: I don't like a raise in these positions, because we don't get much value from worse hands and we can't raise/broke either because his stacking-off range will crush us. 88 has too much SD-value to essentially semibluff here and I'd rather get value from his bluffs, following my argument in the video why a scarecard is not necessarily bad for us.

    @6: Similarly to the 88 question we would just make a raise in order to avoid postflop play. I would consider 3betting if SB was 4betting me wide because of our particular dynamic/history and I could shove 55. But without being able to profitably shove I'd rather bluff Preflop (which 3Bet/Fold essentially would be) with hands that have less postflop-value than 55

    Min 37:00, table 3, why u bet 99 in KQxr in bw oop? protecting from bluffs? value from AT?
    table 6, why not calling the 3bet whit ATs and trying to hit or maybe play a 4bet delay whit a ch/r in many boards? dont u think we are ahead of his range? or you dont like the pleyability of your hand in a 3bet oop?

    Min 47, folding AJ in the turn whit that explanation is just a beautifull hand.

    Honestly the most intresting hand of the vid is that fold xD. It seems std but I bet 95% of regs (including me watching the vid) will not fold cause we play 9-11 tables and we cant yhink that much about that hand and we just call.
    Now I have an idea of when can I make that fold whitout thinking so much about it.

    Excelente video, like all the vids you make.

    "How much do we need for the OESD? is 4 to 1 or 5 to 1?" xD
    8 cards x 2, 16%, 6,25 to 1 actualy =P
  • ge5sterne


    99-hand: Not a great bet but since we can't really c/c here we just have to ask ourselves if it's profitable to bet once here as a bluff Blind-on-Blind. Looks thin and I wouldn't mind a c/f either.

    @odds: Thx mate ;)

    Good vids. Keep em coming.

    #10 "How much do we need for the OESD? is 4 to 1 or 5 to 1?" xD

    8x2.27 = 18.16 so we need ~5.5

    Great, timed out with AA. Think that would put me on tilt for the rest of the day.
  • William340


    timing out w/ AA makes me think:
    too many tables.
