  • NL2FR 3 bet light double barrel bluff

    hi.

    think iv probably asked this many times before but am still geting mixed up on what boards to c bet after u 3 bet light.

    iv been having realy good results using weak aces to 3/4bet light, so was only a few hands in here, and russian multitabler with over 100bbs opens and one call form shorty, i rekon i can get 2 folds here so i 3 bet light.

    The russian calls, and i fire a haf pot cbet on a flop with 2 Q's and 2 flush cards, problem is he calls, so i think maybe flush draw, but i rekon maybe KK (AA would ship)and he doesnt beleive i have a Queen, but i fire another bluff on a 3 turn wich doesnt improve anyones range but makes it look like i do actually have a Queen.

    edit: i think i bet too big on turn?

    Hi,

    Ask yourself what you're representing. You're much less likely to have a Q in your range than he is here (and it seems like you haven't even considered the possibility of him having a Q in your ranging, yet AQ/KQ are reasonable to see from him in this spot).

    When you 3b pre and go to the flop heads up, it's ok to be c-betting most of the time. His call in this spot indicates probably a pocket pair, a flush draw, or a Q slow playing. Turn bet sizing seems a little steep, if he check-raise ships you can't call, so save yourself a bit there and bet like $.58 imo. If he calls again, I'd shut it down on the river usually, unless I know specifically he'll call twice with hands like 88 here then fold to a river bet, in which case I'd shove any non-spade river. Only barreling the turn here though if I know he'll call once with small/med pairs or big aces and fold the turn.

      Hi UrGetinTaxed Nice aggressive line! Personally, I only bluff in 2NL if I have a very solid read on the villain and know that they can fold. In general, I find that value betting my strong hands and letting go of my missed hands works wonders at 2NL - play plain vanilla ABC poker. I would have played this as Dave suggested and given up on the river. Tt was pretty neat though to see you pull the trigger and take down the pot in a pretty scary spotumbup: Roland GTX

          [QUOTE=TheLangolier;375195]Hi,

          Ask yourself what you're representing. You're much less likely to have a Q in your range than he is here (and it seems like you haven't even considered the possibility of him having a Q in your ranging, yet AQ/KQ are reasonable to see from him in this spot).

          tbh when someone in NL2 who i read as a solid TAG, i seem to put them on QQ KK maybe JJ wen they cal a 3 bet from me, i usually follow this read thre, thats why here wen there is 2 q's on board i think QQ is not likely so maybe KK or possibly JJ wich will b hard to cal on a paired Q board, i think in full ring only donks call 3 bets with KQ, just my opinion, i try and find peoples calling 3 bet ranges but its hard unless they showdown! AQ was possible also, but i think on a flush board there gonna lead out with any Q, where here they check, and i bet in position!

          this may actually be a leak im not sure what i just sed, that when somone out of position doesnt lead out when there are 2 flush cards they dont have top pair hands?
