  • What to do on turn?

    It is $1.10 MTOPS #27 Turbo event with 3000 starting stack and 5mins blind level. Should I have betted the turn and fold to raise? I didn't go for bet-fold turn strategy as he was shallow and it would pot commit me if he shoves over my turn bet. As on turn he had almost pot size bet left so SPR was too low for me to bet-fold. Like if I bet 785 and he shoves its just 1500 for me to call ! So it will be 1:4.28 (almost 23% pot odds) for me to call his shove if I go for this plan also if he has a flush then I have 12% equity only. Plus I don't want to put even single chip in the pot if he has a flush. So once he shoved on the turn should I call coz if he made his flush this actions looks stupid to me, because most player will go for value bet but they do sometimes shove nuts also Full Tilt Poker Game #34821427612: MTOPS Event #27 (272118627), Table 4 - NL Hold'em - 80/160 Ante 20 - 18:21:01 IST - 2014/10/19 [08:51:01 ET - 2014/10/19] Seat 1: X3-RUS (8,120) Seat 2: Luckholder1 (5,463) Seat 3: Brad52286 (3,845) Seat 4: L200211 (2,516) Seat 5: adikumar2010 (4,837) Seat 7: JBauer1927 (2,979) Seat 8: breezn (2,940) Seat 9: 40101075022003 (2,985) X3-RUS antes 20 Luckholder1 antes 20 Brad52286 antes 20 L200211 antes 20 adikumar2010 antes 20 JBauer1927 antes 20 breezn antes 20 40101075022003 antes 20 adikumar2010 posts the small blind of 80 JBauer1927 posts the big blind of 160 The button is in seat #4 *** HOLE CARDS *** Dealt to adikumar2010 [ ] breezn folds revolverman9 sits down 40101075022003 calls 160 X3-RUS folds Luckholder1 calls 160 Brad52286 folds L200211 folds adikumar2010 calls 80 JBauer1927 checks *** FLOP *** [ ] (Total Pot: 800, 4 Players) adikumar2010 bets 520 JBauer1927 folds 40101075022003 calls 520 Luckholder1 folds *** TURN *** [ ] [] (Total Pot: 1,840, 2 Players) adikumar2010 checks 40101075022003 bets 2,285, and is all in adikumar2010 STATS :

    Hi adikumar2010! The key in this hand is NOT the turn, it’s preflop. We have an unknown that opens and they are flatted by a tight opp. Ace/rag plays horribly against multiple players, especially the tighter opp. With these three player’s ranges, I’ll use 15% for the opener since they’re an unknown, 15% for the second opp since that is their VPIP and ATC for the BB since they can have anything. Against these ranges, I only will win the hand 18% of the time. It's only 10% to call, but being out of position, I have this disadvantage working against me too and am easily dominated by especially the flatter's range. Playing ace/rags from the blinds is a big leak that many players have and seeing flops with them by calling is just lighting my chips on fire. This is a very clear, easy fold preflop. On the flop, when I hit two pair on a very wet board, I need to make a standard value bet that will price out the draws. With 3 opps, this is 3/4 pot, so I need to bet 600. If I bet less and the opp hits, it’s my own fault that I lose. The turn is just about as bad of a card as there can be. The gutterball straight got there, the flush got there and AT got there. With top and bottom pair, I need to check and fold to any sizable bet. The key to this hand though, is to muck a bad hand preflop when I'm going to lose more than 4 in every 5 times. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24) Tweet this hand on Twitter using the Tweet button above for a chance to win a seat in the next $5,000 guaranteed Big Bang tournament.

      There are a lot of hand ahead of you besides just flushes, there are better 2 pair and straights as well. Against an unknown, I'm folding here and waiting for a better spot.

            The first opp is an unknown, so I need to treat them as a standard player, which is 15-20% and with them being in early position, I need to go to the bottom of this range. If they were in late position, I'd use 20% for them.. not more unless I have a read on them, which I don't have due to being an unknown.
            The second player has a 15VPIP... so they're at 15% (if they raised, then I'd use their PFR of 9%).

            The BB is a random, as they can have ATC since it was limped.

            You can't just randomly up a player's vpip in a limped pot.. it is what it is.

                  You mean I can't complete SB when they all limp when I will mostly have better hand against all of them, I am sure A6o was ahead of them all preflop limping hands

                    A6o is a 60-40 dog against the player with an established 15VPIP. When the other players are in the hand, each one lowers my % chance to win the pot.

                    I'd be tons better off with a hand like 89s than A/rag offsuit.

                    When there are a number of limpers, I can complete IF I have a hand with some equity. Due to having basically two opps on a 15% range (unknown opener and the established player), it's very, very easy for me to be dominated, so I need to fold ace/rag.

                    I'm not ahead of the others. There are 4 players in the pot and if everyone had an equal chance to win, I'd win 25% of the time.. but due to the opp's ranges, I'm not at 25%, I'm only at 18%... so I'm not ahead at all with A6o.
