Hi 3wadefan,

You Played it fine I think but in reality that depends on your reads of the villian.

some questions

1. is 3x your standard open with a limper in the pot?

2. when vilian called check raise on the flop what did you put him on?

3. did you consisder shoving the flop?

4. with the flush getting there on the river did you consider just calling the 80 chips?

5. what range did you think the viliian had and how did that change throughout the hand

The villian was playing 50% of pots, any time he had AQ+ JJ+ so far no matter what action if any pre flop he just shoved
1. No i would usually 4x that, i dont know why i did that there.
2. I had him on any pair.
3. i considered, but i figured from what a saw of the villian, that he would call 3 streets of betting more then a shove.
4. I did consider calling, but i really just didnt believe he had the flush. i think he would of played it diffrently one turn if he was drawing for a flush.
5. i had him on up to A10, or up to KJ

so based on your reads you played in fine.

personally for me I think the dimond may have slowed me down but without knowing the table dymanic its hard to say.

Hi 3WadeFan!

With AA and a limper in front of me, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With this being the case, I'll raise to 80. I want to keep all of my bets standard, so that the opps are continually guessing as to the cards that I have. Players that bet more or less based on their cards are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent... something that I want to avoid.

I see a HU flop IN position that brings three unders. The opp now leads into me for an abnormally small bet of 40. A standard bet with one opp is 1/2 pot, so since they bet small, I need to raise by 1/2 pot in order to price out any draws that the opp may have. Due to this, I will raise to 135.

The turn is another under and I need to do the same thing when the opp makes another abnormally small bet. I will once again raise by 1/2 pot, so I will raise to 325... BUT... this bet will basically pot-commit me, as I will be putting in 1/3 of my remaining chips. Due to this, I'm shoving the turn.

I need to keep all of my bets standard and make them large enough that I price out any possible draws. When I bet too small, if I give the opp a +EV draw to beat me.. it's my own fault that I lose the hand.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
