Hand 33

OK back at it after the holidays.

Hand starts with Hero opening it up in the HJ for 3x and Villain cold calling us on the BU. Everyone else folds. V is running 17/13 on 263 hands. Seems somewhat nitty with a 3-bet % of only 1.1%. He's just 3-betting me with AA-KK and AK basically.

AA-44,AKo-AJo,KQo-KJo,QJo,AKs-A8s,A5s-A2s,KQs-KTs,QJs-QTs,JTs-J9s,T9s,98s,87s,76s,65s for 17% form or 26 combos

QQ-55,AQo-AJo,KQo,QJo,AQs-ATs,KQs-KTs,QJs-QTs,JTs,T9s,98s,87s,76s for 11.2% form or 148 combos

The flop comes

Equity of my range: 54.3%
Their equity: 45.6%

I guess I'd call this flop semi-dry. It's got a flush draw and an A but there aren't a ton of combos in either of our ranges that really nailed this flop. We could both be drawing tho. We bet 66% pot and he calls. Of note is that V has a FvCBet of 14%! That's really low and even tho we don't have a huge sample size, it seems he likes to float IP. It's kind of weird because his VPIP/PFR makes me think I have some FE but his postflop stats make me think otherwise. Because of that I want to be betting here with a pretty balanced range. I think he calls me with basically everything given he's IP and the texture. I think in reality he folds a few of his non-made hands but for simplicity I had him continuing with 100%.

AA-66,AKo-AJo,AKs-A8s,A5s-A2s,KcQc,KcJc,KcTc,QcJc,QcTc,JcTc,Jc9c,Tc9c,9c8c,8c7c,7c6c,6c5c for 58.8% of previous range or 117 combos

QQ-55,AQo-AJo,KQo,QJo,AQs-ATs,KQs-KTs,QJs-QTs,JTs,T9s,98s,87s,76s for 100% of his previous range or 148 combos

The Turn comes


My equity: 67.4%
Their equity: 31.7%

I think our equity went up a good bit because he floats too much.

We again bet about 2/3 pot and he calls us. Because I think he probably floats the flop too much, in this spot, I think I would fire a second barrel at the micros pretty much always. If his VPIP/PFR tell me he's a little nitty and his stats say he pretty much always calls the flop, I like a second barrel every time. The CvTCB just can't be accurate. I refuse to believe it haha. It's not likely to have a big sample size. I have him folding out a lot of his non made hands here but when I did the analysis it still had him continuing with 69.9% of his previous range. When he calls us again we're likely in trouble. He's more than likely got something strongish.

AA-66,AKo-AJo,AKs-A8s,A5s-A2s,KcQc,KcJc,KcTc,QcJc,QcTc,JcTc,Jc9c,Tc9c,9c8c,8c7c,7c6c,6c5c for 100% of my previous range or 114 combos

QQ-55,AQo-AJo,AQs-ATs,87s,76s,Tc9c,9c8c,KcQc,KcJc,KcTc,QcJc,QcTc,JcTc for 69.9% of his previous range or 82 combos

The river comes


Our equity: 93.7%
Theirs: 6.2%

Interesting that the flush getting in is so good for us equity-wise. I almost feel like that isn't right.

This is where things get a little funky. We check, he bets about 2/3 pot and we call. Now I do think that I would do this with very strong hand OTR hoping to induce a float from him. I'd probably check with quads, boats and strong flushes hoping he takes a stab at the pot. However, if he did I would likely raise him after that. So I don't think I take this line with the tippy top of my range.

I'd probably take this line with TP and some more middling pairs like KK-77 but that seems pretty marginal given the board. Not sure how much bluff catching would be worth it here. Very tough to come up with what hands I would do that with because I think if I had some of these middling pairs that had a flush blocker I would continue to barrel. Same goes for the TP hands.

I think he value bets his sets+ and stabs with his air. Takes showdown with everything in between.

KK-77,AKo-AJo,AKs-A8s,A5s-A2s for 87.5% of my previous range or 100 combos

66-55,87s,76s,Tc9c,9c8c,KcQc,KcJc,KcTc,QcJc,QcTc,JcTc for 20.5% of his previous range or 16 combos
