    I use the line of hand one really often... but I dont really know how to balance it when he realises that I am doing that.
    Any idea? mix cbeting and ch/c x3, so he cant really know when we are ch/c whit a hand? also ch/c whit a draw sometimes and maybe ch/r turn for example?
  • yomatiyo


    Sorry! you already answer me =P

    but about ch/c 88 in T65r, and they will not continuo, we are given allways 2 free cards to OC that will not continue if they dont hit.
  • yomatiyo


    LOL, sorry again, you answer me again =(
    Now I will see the vid and coment after, cause u coment every question I had =P
  • Shevtshenko


    With QTs overbetting the turn with fd+gs+overs, what rivers are you bluffing and why?
  • Shevtshenko


    ^^ and with what sizing?
  • FairyVerde


    Great one.
  • cozaro


    I don't think 34s 23:00, is a good spot to bleff at river. In my vision of your line i would be calling with any showdown value, cause i can't see you holding flush/straight after the check at turn (i could fold just if i had a read you can check draws, obvs).
  • pwnadine


    QTs overbet turn hand, i am missing your lines if you get called.

    Hi, what do you think about check/raising the turn with the QTs? He might delayed cbet overcards or bet/fold a weak hand like 77.
    If he checks you can bluff the river with a 100% freq.
    Do you think this is a good plan?
  • kazediel


    Hand 2 Qts Why not to donk the flop? around half of the turns are going to let you keep arreling, he is a regular so his range on the BTN should e wide so he's gonna fold a lot flop/turn/river

    on the other hand, if you had a strong hand, sixes, for example, it would also make sense to donk ecause you can expect him to do lots of checks on that oard

    I find it a bad policy from PokerStrategy, to allow a coach to advertise for his private coaching business outside of Pokerstrategy.

    I don`t think that given your handplan you just can look at the odds you et on the river to see how often you have to be ahead...
    The reason for that is that you make this handplan already on the flop and hence the flop-and turncall should be imo already considered as coists (RIPs regards to a planned X/Calldown)
  • IronPumper


    edit to #15:
    sry, have seemingyl mislistend to you the 1st time -> I think you have considered it right...
  • IronPumper



    agree with you that QT is here a way better hand to X/C due to your reasoning than 99, 88.
    So I guess your default is here just to cbet w a hand like 88 to protect your PotEQ and take the pot down?
  • Gonira


    very good video, but my standard in hand 2 would be barreling 3/4 turn and barreling again at almost any river card. i don't see very much floats with naked ace-high hands in this turn fwiw. great line to consider anyway.
  • YourDoomPoker


    #2 #3 #4 :)
  • YourDoomPoker


    #5 #6 #9 A river bluff would be real expensive at this point. Generally if he calls my massive overbet turn bet, he has to have something, so I'd be giving up on a lot of rivers. The only cards id consider bluffing at this point are diamond or a 5. And I'd only bluff if I thought I had enough fold equity to make it worthwhile, which again, is tough after he flats close to 2x pot on the turn.
  • YourDoomPoker


    #7 #14 Thanks!
  • YourDoomPoker


    #11 That seems ok to me sometimes. But in my experience when I double check then raise turn, I get floated or played back at even lighter. So I find that line to be less successful.
  • YourDoomPoker


    #12 I generally dont donk into regulars in this spot HU. I find that donk bets HU get much less respect and get floated/raise much more than a xR. I'm not saying that it's always wrong to donk out HU into a regular, it's just not my style of play.
  • YourDoomPoker


    #17 Yes, that is correct.
  • YourDoomPoker


    #18 With that line however, depending on the opponent's image of you, I think it's more likely we are going to get called down with by middle strength holdings (87,77,A8, etc...)
  • LooserSR


    i use all those lines at NL200, time to jump into NL2k imo :) nice vid anyway
  • IronPumper



    what would be your plan on a riverblank should your overstab get called?
  • Csengele


    21:00 I am myself used to play also with monster draws the overbet play against weak ranges for max FE, but i dont understand why you told you bet turn check river... If i bet in this spot the turn, i always bet the river, because his range is so weak, full of A high, K high combox maybe 7x, weak 8xes (if you x/r all the time), and he will fold the most of his/her range...
  • YourDoomPoker



    :) Well, I did pretty much jump from NL600 to NL2k back in April 2010, but I would suggest trying NL400 first.

  • YourDoomPoker


    #27 and #28

    See #20 :)
  • ilares


    hand 1 : you re still calling if he overbet shove the river?
    are you still calling a 2/3 bet on a 9 or 7?
  • YourDoomPoker



    Well, unless I've seen him do this as a bluff before, I'll probably fold if he overbet shoves the river. But most players don't do that.

    A 9 or a 7 would be much harder to xC. But they are also great cards for him to bluff.

    I'd have to go with my read at that point.
  • Gavron23


    Hand 1 - good plan in a vacuum w/o history imo but in the future what does that say about your cbetting range on this board if we don't sbet top pair mid decent kicker?
  • Gavron23


    Hand 1 Also isnt an agressive opponent floating IP a decent ammount of the time, so we can cbet and then c/c the turn against such an opponent?
