    I saw in your popup "Bet vs. Missed CBet". Where can I find that stat in Pt4?

    Why don't you just shove for value? I think this type of opponent will call with almost same range that he calls smaller bet. I don't see Qx-hands folding ever. And it's not even that big overbet.


    I like 0,80 bet more too, since Tx definitely calls, missed draws / random flouts could easily raise because of this weak looking sizing. 0,20 and 0,80 makes the same job done, but with 0,80 we'll get more value.


    Why don't you like calling here? I would very often call, since MP opens hands like KQ/KJ/QJs/QTs/AJ/ATs that we dominate, and CO calls with same kind of hands. By squeezing we're just turning our good hand into a bluff for no reason, and folding seems pretty weak to me (let's assume that BTN didn't squeeze).


    I think we could just 3bet for value vs. this guy, because he has opened with 5x sizing before, and seems like he's not necessarily doing this with only strong hands. Hes VPIP/PFR is also pretty high, so he is playing wider range. I would just 3bet/shove or 3bet/call in that spot, because I think this kind of villain is really capable of calling our 3bet with worst hands and he might 4bet/call or 4bet shove with hands like AQ/AJ, wouldn't be suprised.

    #4 Thanks for the comments, I appreciate you taking the time to do this.

    27:15 - Yeah, I guess you could overbet. 3d is not the best card for extracting value however + the hand is a total train-wreck if opponent hero folds a Qx.

    34:45 - Totally agree with you. Think min-bet was partly curiosity/experiment at the time.

    35:15 - Depends on opening range of MP. Vs a tight MP open there is a decent chance the equities runs super close + the fact we have to overcome positional disadvantage. Bottom line is that I often turn AQo into a bluff vs MP or UTG opens.

    I don't think it's strong enough in the relative sense that you waste a ton of value by not flatting. I.e not convinced expectation through flatting is necessarily higher than the expectation through stealing preflop in this particular spot.

    47:00 - Yeah, probably would be +EV. Although it'll be high variance since AKo doesn't have a huge amount of equity even vs any 2 cards. It also may be possible to get money in in a higher equity spot by flatting and taking a flop.

    Generally I like to take flops where possible rather than ship pf, that's always been my style, but sometimes shipping pf is simply the best option.

    #3 Hey JJWic3,

    Ok, here's the trick.

    Bet vs missed cbet in PT4 is referred to as a "float" bet. Stat is "float flop".

    As poker players we know a float is technically a call, not a bet, but PT4's system does kind of make sense when you think about it.

    In a situation where you fire flop and check turn ----> the stat "float turn" will tell you how often opponent fires vs your missed turn cbet (when you are OOP).

    The opposite type of bet to this is the "probe bet". If you are in position and do not cbet flop, "probe turn" will tell you how often opponent leads on the turn.

    #2 Thanks for the comments DonkeyDirk, and thanks for your suggestion, I will keep it in mind.

    4:00 table #1 you fold the straight. Is that intentional cos we're usually calling to chop?
  • w34z3l


    #8 Think I may have folded this preflop, so I didn't actually make a straight.
  • redrawstump


    My bad #facepalm :)
  • JJWic3


    Oh, thanks. I misused the float stats then, because I always looked up in the popup how often someone floats. So then "float flop" means how often someone bets vs. missed flop cbet, I guess?
  • w34z3l


    #11 Exactly. A float is type of bet according to PT4.

    When poker players talk about floating they are talking about calling though of course.

    That would be awesome!
