  • Again tough spot against micro-stakes

    It's Saturday Micro $3.30, 25k Gtd with 15mins blind level.

    I am not sure what the 'lucho_doc' shoved with, but once the SB called I don't know if I should be calling there or fold coz SB is a loose player.

    No reads on 'lucho_doc' it was his first hand.

    Hi adi,

    Firstly I don't care for the c-bet in a 3 way pot here... I would generally check here and expect to be able to make a much more informed decision the next time I act.

    Once the guy shoves I think we have a very easy fold. The board is very dry so he can't be shoving too many draws, it's largely Qx or better. Also not likely to be a random spew-bluff in a multi-way pot imo.

      Hi adi!

      I see one additional thing with this preflop bet. In a number of the other hands that you've submitted, you've bet way too small (mostly with marginal hands).
      If you were using 3BB+1BB for each limper as your bet in every hand, then it's great, but now that you have JJ, instead of min or just above min, you now go 4X (std bet for this level with a limper).... this is a tell for a better hand to anyone that is watching, so if the opp shoves when they should know you have a made hand, they should be ahead of JJ.

      The key is to keep all the bets and raises consistent and to not base them on hand strength.

      I totally agree with Dave about not c-betting and folding to the shove.

        Against weaker players you can exploitatively go bigger with value or small with weaker hands because they tend not to notice as much as regs.

          I know weak player dont notice the raise sizes but I keep my raise size same when I am playing for example live cash games $1/$1. Why not C-bet and give free turn straight or turn , which kills my hand? I was contemplating a call just coz these micro stakes player are doing idiotic stuff. This fold tilted me and I spewed my all chips in next 5mins & busted *** FLOP *** [Qh 2s 3d] kevhans: checks adikumar2010: bets 619 lucho_doc: raises 1971 to 2590 and is all-in kevhans: calls 1316 and is all-in adikumar2010: folds Uncalled bet (1274) returned to lucho_doc *** TURN *** [Qh 2s 3d] [Js] *** RIVER *** [Qh 2s 3d Js] [Ah] *** SHOW DOWN *** kevhans: shows [4d 5d] (a straight, Ace to Five) lucho_doc: shows [8h 8s] (a pair of Eights) kevhans collected 4691 from pot *** SUMMARY *** Total pot 4691 | Rake 0 Board [Qh 2s 3d Js Ah] Seat 1: dimonzzz121 (button) folded before Flop (didn't bet) Seat 2: Habinko (small blind) folded before Flop Seat 3: cernatflo (big blind) folded before Flop Seat 4: Nera Obuoliu folded before Flop (didn't bet) Seat 5: Rash171 folded before Flop (didn't bet) Seat 6: kevhans showed [4d 5d] and won (4691) with a straight, Ace to Five Seat 7: adikumar2010 folded on the Flop Seat 8: Classik_88 folded before Flop (didn't bet) Seat 9: lucho_doc showed [8h 8s] and lost with a pair of Eights
