    You said that a 4BB opening often indicates a strong hand... IMO, it's a standard opening raise as suggested by Dan Harrington and many authors.
  • vonki


    Thanks for the comments guys! :)

    #6: Once upon a time it could be that 4bb was the standard open raising size. However, if you look through the video, you will see that most players use 2, 2.5, 3 or 3.5 more often than 4bb.

    The players that do open 4bb, also open 3bb at times (presumably the medium strong hands) or limp a lot (presumably the weaker hands), thus indicating that 4bb is not a "standard" (or it would be used the majority of the time) and is used with the strong part of a players range. I could be wrong, I don't have as much experience with NL2 as I do with other limits. NL2 might be the exception to the rule, but because of what I wrote above, I'm fairly sure my statement is somewhat accurate.
