    i hope the topic wasnt the break up line from your ex gf :p

    i like to bet small around 33% for my cbet too but i only did it against 1 opp.
    dont you think with j10(min 15:00) you give the bb with an almost 30bb stack too good of a price for potential flush or straight draws with your 40% bet?
  • AaronLambert


    haha I love it

    Anyways the shorter stack has a wide range but I'm not concerned with them chasing a draw due to the fact they don't have enough implied odds to flat with their stacksize.

    Meanwhile the other stack who is deeper is going to be playing a slightly tighter range which will include some flush draws but won't include any straight draws because I find him less likely to call with hands like 56, A2, 25, and A5... So I'm really not concerned about the straight but really only the flush which isn't something I'm worried about paying off since I'll be playing in position as well so I have the ability to control the size of the pot.

    Thanks for watching!

  • AaronLambert

  • Bartmannn


    Wow, thx a lot.
    After watching yesterday I tried to vary my betsizes a bit more and the result was very encouraging. Definetely a part of my play now!

    @9 :)
    It is underused and can definitely take a players game to the next level. Glad you enjoy it and seeing results so quickly!

    nice vid aaron, enjoyed it as allways... i've incorporated this a year ago or so to my game, but its good to see it from another players perspective as well, so thanks for that!
    especially in 3bet pots its insane how you can induce action from hands like 1 Overcard + backdors and stuff... I like!
  • AaronLambert


    :D ya I don't see it enough so it seemed like a logical topic for a video to share to the community!

    Hi Aaron loved the video.Just wondering if there would be any room on pokerstrategy for a video relating to limping with premium hands ...or flatting ep raises with premiums to induce squeezes....stuff like that.A friend recently showed me how to incorporate some of these plays to my game and i have found them very beneficial.
  • AaronLambert


    Thanks for the kind words @15 yes I agree flatting huge hands from EP raisers from EP/MP are the way to go.

    I had a situation come up like that a few hand histories before where hero had KK UTG+1 v. UTG min raise and he shoved and I would have liked just a flat especially since most of the table was 8-20 BBs (perfect stacksizes to squeeze)

    I'll write down this as an idea but the topic in itself isn't really broad enough for its own series so I'd have to throw it in with a few other topics most likely.

    Thanks for the input!
