  • 50NL 6-max advanced? No it's just 5NL

    So in advance,

    Sorry, I'm just letting off a bit of steam, so what is the new advanced, bronze to chrome or 5NL to 10NL?

    With no hud is it brave or stupid to just call down with A4s turn 2 pair top kicker? No river bet saves me!

    The only difference 5NL vs 10NL is you get a shoved on some random river card.

    On tilt and sad to learn I haven't a clue in micro vs low stakes; pre is fine, flop ok, turn should be sorted and then the river.



    Need to step away from poker soon, but hey, good news I just won a pot!

    First of all I don't like having a flatting range in the sb vs btn steal 100bb deep unless there is a fish in the bb or some other rare factor.

    As played I like the flop call with all the backdoors under the sun.

    The turn improves our hand, so I don't like calling flop to fold turn.

    If you aren't comfortable calling the turn then don't call the flop.

      Hi Forrest,

      I too don't like the preflop call, our hand is easier to play restealing vs. a button open imo. Like birdayy said, if the BB is a huge fish that we want to play pots with, that's a good reason to call, to invite them in.

      Post flop seems fine. I sort of disagree with birdayy on the river... I'm not sure we have to call a big river bet all the time here. Our hand is pretty face up, we look like a small pair, and in btn vs blind they expect to get called down more so we are going to get value bet by 9x and mid pairs+, while also seeing air give up more often. It also depends on villain reads of course, with which we can make a more informed decision... if villain is an aggro stealer and aggro barreler, then river is an easy check/call. But in general playing in the dark I expect us to win frequently when the river goes check/check, but not so much when it goes check/bet.

        ^ I didn't mention the river because we didn't face a bet?

        If we did I would either x/raise or fold depending on the villain and how thin they go for value.

          Sorry birdayy, I misread this as river/turn and not turn/flop. Reading comprehension ftw.

          I agree that a c/r can be nice on the river vs. a thin value bettor, particularly one that routinely bet/folds.
