    11:20 I agree with your reasoning in this spot of "not feeling trapped even if we are trapped". Though if we had decent HU sample on him at what point you would start to give enough trap possibility for that limp to tighten up? Or would you always just shove without having seen traps in showdown in similar spot? With decent sample I mean e.g. 100 hands on HU and he has barely never limped, but still been active in open raising/shoving.

    #2 Even though he never limped in 100 hands before, he does not trap us when we would have called a push anyway. You can only start to make adjustments if you have PROOF that he is very likely to trap with a limp.

    Unlike thats the case he is not exploiting you, its more likely that you level yourself and lose equity asuming things without having definit proof.

    10:00 A7s (and previous hands) BB is one of the top Stars regs with over $100k in winnings. I doubt he's folding hands he should call. That's why I also like folding Q3s on the BU for 4bb. Our opponents are both good regs; they will call us with Nash. Thus im pretty sure we are losing money when we shove this far outside the nash range. Q7s+ and I'm ok to go with it for the reasons you state. Again, for me, the point of folding a -EV shove (Q3s) is that we can then make a +EV call the next hand with A9o when we crush the BU's super wide range. Folding that one is the bigger mistake, I feel.

    agreed with Tim on the Q3s hand. Holdemresources with future equity calculation goes to Q6s, Giving Q3s -0.3%. That is calculated on a callrange of 35% from bb which actually kinda sounds right.
    It is very important that sb will push normally any2 and there is a good chance that they collide.
  • Qubie


    I would push it only if I have proof that sb will fold hands in that spot

    #2 Ghaleon: I've seen a lot of aggressive regs suddenly limp heads-up without trapping. So I would want a specific note on that player to check instead of shove.

    #3 JustGambling: Good points.

    #4 Tim64: Having a solid winrate means that he's playing significantly better than his opposition, not that he's playing perfectly. With that said, I do agree with your main point, and Q3s is definitely marginal; quite possibly you're right that it's too negative an edge and better to just take the blind. Thanks for your feedback/comments.

    #5/#6 Qubie: Good points on the increased probability of a collision. I probably shove too wide in some of these spots and will study these situations in greater detail. Thanks.

    Hi, First thanks for the videos I started a couple days ago and it's definitely very interesting.
    Just a question on the AQo and KJo hands when you are wondering whether it is better to open shove or raise from the button i think, depending on the type of player that BB is. Um, what's your reasoning there ? Because I think I heard you say you would raise/call if he came back to 3bet you all-in, so... I mean is the point of minraising to induce a bluff and then call his shove, or is it to leave you room to fold ? For instance the AQo you would not fold but the KJo, when you're the same stack size as villain, and ahead of the two others, i don't see how it would be interesting to raise and call behind. Better to take the blinds for me through an open shove. How does it matter for these two hands in particular if BB is Tight/passive or loose/agressive ?
