Dec 29, Daniel rated it really liked it Shelves: It can be a little hard to read because of the grammatical errors that come along with early self-publishing, but it's a good read if you're still playing and thinking in the antiquated styles of Brunson, Sklansky, or Hellmuth and need to grow out of it.

It's also a good read just for the special place it holds in documenting a game that was changing so fast that most players never saw it happen. View 1 comment. Nov 21, Timothy rated it it was ok Shelves: The information was fine and presented reasonably well, but the assumptions made don't hold true at all for fishier games.

Very much aimed at spots reg v reg. Oct 19, B. Once you get past the poor production values, the spelling and grammar issues and various other errors, and once you get your head around or even just skip While I don't agree with everything presented here, at least if translated from 6-max to full ring live games, Once you get past the poor production values, the spelling and grammar issues and various other errors, and once you get your head around or even just skip While I don't agree with everything presented here, at least if translated from 6-max to full ring live games, there is a lot of gold scattered through this book, and some pretty good examples could use work in places though and I like the overall logic and approach they use to present it.

I still haven't "used" all of this yet, but am aching to do so as soon as possible at the low-limit games at places like the Mirage or local Indian joints around SoCal, where I know that this info would be extremely useful. Probably wouldn't at higher levels or playing in super-tough online games, but at games like I usually play it sure would. The biggest problem with much of this advice is that it will increase variance a lot.

It is obviously for people who multitable online first of all, so understand that. When you are playing hands an hour, it can take a long time to recover from a few shoves gone awry, which this book and others like it treat as something you do left-and-right I have nothing to say except the next time you're in a hand and you want to check back the turn with top pair.

Had you checked the turn and called a river bet. That means the other 38 times they'll miss and fold. When was the last time you did that after making a continuation bet? If Villain calls your turn bet. When you check behind on the turn after betting a draw heavy flop. If he has a draw himself. Villain might even check-raise. If they have an open-ended straight draw or a flush draw. People in low and mid-stakes games don't check-raise semi- bluff the turn often. Betting the turn also helps make your bluffs more credible because your range isn't polarized to the nuts or air.

How else are you going to get paid when you hit your monsters? But what's the point of balancing when your opponents choose to ignore it? The idea behind balancing is to make yourself a tougher player so people can't accurately put you on a hand.

We can't choose to see a free showdown on the river and we win fewer pots. Balancing In theory. With the nuts in position. If he does shove all-in which doesn't happen often. There's a reason why live nits just fold and fold only to stack a young player's A K. You don't get penalized for folding preflop. It is also harder to extract value. It's infinitely more difficult to run a three-barrel bluff out of position than in position because Villain could be flatting with the nuts on three streets.

In short.

Bet when you think your opponent's range is weak strong and check or fold when you think it is strong. The worst thing that can happen is people call you a nit. Playing Out Of Position It boggles my mind how much people like to play out of position when not forced to. In practice. This also increases your fold equity because that's how you would play your nut hands. Poker is a game where you make money by avoiding difficult spots with marginal hands.

Our advice is simple: The reason playing out of position sucks is because we don't have a lot of choices. It's hard to manage the size of the pot.

Villain doesn't have to raise your flop or turn bet because he closes the action on the river. In addition. Figure out who they are and be more inclined to bet against those who won't give free showdowns. It's hard for Hero to call on the river BB checks. BB calls value is checking back the flop with ace-rag hoping Flop: Hero's BB: Any competent opponent BB checks. Villain checks the river and Hero checks hoping that his pair of sevens is good.

BB calls since Villain's bluffing frequency isn't high enough. Hero is B T N with Another misunderstanding with showdown 3 folds. We usually have ace-high and at best. Hero bets. We'd like to point out that we should be more inclined to showdown with AK than A5 on a T82r board because AK dominates more hands if it improves. Not only that.

Let There Be Range!: Crushing SSNL/MSNL No-Limit Holdem Games

Some players will put you on ace-high and bet turn and bet river to prevent a showdown. It is important to determine what type of opponents we should check back ace-high against. Note that in the above situation where our range is face-up that our range is rarely strong. Hero opens. Villain might be bluffing with a better BB checks. We will discuss later situations where our range is face-up and what we can do about it.

Hero should U T G: Hero checks hand. Showdown Value 16 f A good general rule for showdown value is when he can't beat the fourth pair on the board.

BB calls will realize this and fire the turn and follow. Example 4. Villain will CO: On the contrary. This means when playing in low-stakes games dotft expect people to know what you're trying to represent.

This is because players overestimate the amount of psychological warfare going on! And I rarely bluff. The only hands the nit balances in his hand range are the nuts. We have seen lots of hands where a decent player is in a pot against a nit and will talk himself into calling by thinking.

Leveling 17 Players try to out-level themselves too much. There is no "He knows I know he knows" shenanigans going on. I guess you're not good enough to fold that since I either have the nuts or a bluff. We can't recall how many times players bluff. I blame this type of syndrime on the high stakes players. If he's a nit. The reason we make moves is because we think our opponent's range is weak. I must call. He wouldn't be surprised if they created leveling just to make playetjs play bad—which brings us to another point.

It also balances your overall game. While you do have overcards. We can also continue putting pressure on my opponents if we miss on the river. Although your hand might be good. Equity The number one thing you should consider at all times during a hand is your equity against a standard hand range. The main reason is the equity we have against Villain's calling range on the turn. Players will think you are a crazy aggressive maniac when.

Often times. If we're holding a crappy pair. It is vital to know that whenever you make a move you have some equity if you get called. We see players making continuation bets on flops such as with AT or KJ. For example. We'll be able to fire one more barrel if the river card strengthened my perceived range.

Opponents also often improve on a river card that you are not sure if you should bluff or not. Backdoor Draws 18 Players don't value backdoor draws enough. After all. With a flush or straight draw. Against these types of opponents. It is better to just check-fold the flop or even preflop.

This couldn't be further from the truth. Although the river card doesn't change Hero's equity verses Villain's hand range that much. Against those who will never fold preflop. By calling the river.

You can determine this amount by increasing your preflop raise to 5x. They are bad at extracting value out of their strong hands and generally play passively. Just save yourself money and fold. But it is important to recognize that the richest players in the world are the best fish fryers.

Please don't bluff them. Not surprisingly. Low and mid-stakes players like to call a lot preflop and on the flop. And since they call a lot. Raise to this amount with premium hands and be prepared to win a big pot. He's not. How many times have you had the nuts and people bet. Whenever this type of fish bets. Players also make the mistake of calling too much on the earlier streets only to fold on later streets.

Don't try to level yourself by thinking he's balancing or adjusting. Another type of fish calls a lot but is very passive. Some fish are overly aggressive and like to win every pot.

Call 19 There is a misconception that if you call the turn. At the same time.

There is nothing wrong with this. The problem. Don't try to outlevel them since they are always on level one. Here's why: You don t bluff enough. Next time you play. Non-Showdown Winnings f Players often wonder why their non-showdown winnings are negative. Not Bluffing Enough Rivers Players don't bluff the river enough because they think they'll get called even though Villain's calling frequency is so low. Exercise 4. Start bluffing more rivers. The reason behind this is selective memory.

If you think you bluff a lot. Everyone likes to think they are bluffing the river more than thet really are because it is obviously cooler to win a pot with a worse'hand.

We will go into more detail on this in the "Exploitability" chapter. You aren't semi-bluffing enough. You don't re-raise preflop enough—or you do but usually give up after betting the flop. He is not thinking. If you are a regular who set mines and has been winning at a good rate. Don't hold any bullets back. Don't worry.

As we said earlier. My advice: Don't bluff too much and if you do. If you feel you are bluffing and outplaying people left and right. M y advice: You fold a lot and you check more than you bet. You know who you are. Some players ask me if they should change their games to increase their non-showdown winnings or leave them alone. We're going to guess that you don't like variance. Or you three-bet preflop a lot. There are a few factors you should consider before deciding to change your game.

Some players fire the flop. Villain is not BB: When a player is not going to fold top pair for any amount of money and you beat top pair. Cole checks he has a hard time folding by the river.

Against the world-class player. It would be unfortunate if Cole shows: The most important exploitable strategy against weak players is over-betting with the nuts. This is especially true when we play against opponents who do not adjust against the most exploitable of strategies. Don't bother balancing your over-bets with bluffs. Exploitability The term exploitable strategy is often brought up in poker discussion. From our example. As you know. I river the nuts on a great alkim I "buy a cheap river" by betting one-fifth pot.

Hero bets S This has a good J fold. I call. Hero is CO with semi-bluff and betting the river. Although these types of insanely loose aggressive players have big leaks in their games. Although they know the late position opener steals a lot. Against opponents who three-bet with the top third of their range and are eager to get it in preflop.

This is selective memory at its best. If only their competition would open f up PokerTracker or Hold em Manager and look at Villain's positional stats! From there. Different players three-bet in and out of position with different distributions of holdings. You won't get four-bet that often. Then you'll know. Against opponents who three-bet the bottom and top of their range while electing to call with the middle of their range.

If he's the type who likes to fold. If you do get four-bet a lot from a particular player. This is especially true if they never five-bet.

Another player may decide to call with the bottom two-thirds of his range and re-raise with the top one- third. Start three-betting more aggressively- you'll be a better player for it.

The Journey Begins The games are becoming more aggressive as players widen their range preflop by one-third of the deck and seem to increase their aggression factor by infinity.

If you just sit down at the game and don't know what type of opponent he is. Herd would have an idea of what these LAGs are re-raising or calling preflop three-bets with. There's no need to worry about what set of hands to re-raise with if you're opponent keeps folding to your three-bets or if they often call but check-fold to your continuation bets.

An important factor when deciding whether to call or re-raise preflop is to consider the type of opponent who opens the pot. One player may three-bet from the blinds with the bottom of his range.

Run It Once

This is because they try to solve the hand preflop. I has been folding every hand because I knew the moment I re-raise. Why bet if your opponent is going to bet most of the times you check? If you don't think he'll bet. The question is.

He might be getting fed up.

Let There Be Range!

These hands have great equity against a calling station's hand range and are easy to play post-flop when you hit a pair or a draw. This is especially true against dumb loose aggressive players who three-bet you every chance they get.

I just laughed it off. Sometimes with the table dynamics or player history. The third option is to four-bet. I show a better hand. The main reason why these calling stations are successful is because players don't adjust well.

Slow-playing is definitely a lost art because players learn how to play solid from poker training sites. On the other hand. A second option is to not open as many hands and tighten up your preflop range. This sequence repeats itself many times and most players fail to recognize the correct strategy is to either semi bluff the turn more or check the next time they have a strong hand.

He is also going to fire a lot of second barrels as well.

He's a good player so he must have noticed this. Villain will out-think himself. These players are all over the low to mid-stakes games. As the games become more aggressive. Most players fire their inevitable continuation bet after re-raising preflop and check-fold when they don't have a good hand on the turn.

To be fair. I'm a loose aggressive player and I have been running over the table. An old grinder once told me. My hand is ahead of his re-stealing range. Villain's line of thought isn't wrong. The situation above is different. The easiest answer is fold to his re-raise. You keep folding and when you finally play back at them. God forbid. With the card removals. You start four-betting in position as stack sizes increase to BBs or so because you'll get more folds. A hand that we should often consider four-bet bluffing more is KQ.

Most of the time when we get three-bet and are holding KQ. This makes them easier to play against because you have the initiative and you're playing in position with lots of money behind. Over time. If I do get away with my four-bet bluff. You obviously get fewer folds if you four-bet when you're out of position. What we should do is consider turning KQ into a "bluff" and start four-betting more.

He will incorrectly add bluffs to your four-betting range. Even if Villain calls. We do so because it's too strong a hand to fold against a particular opponent but isn't strong enough to four-bet and get it in preflop. People rarely. Here is an alternative strategy. The reason for this is that he's more likely to give you credit the. When you do this.

A play we like to use is four-betting the first or second time a tight-aggressive regular re-raises his late position open. If he happens to have a hand and shove. It feels weird to call out of position with a little more than BB when the pot is already 65BB. There are two approaches for this situation. I will four-bet bluff the next time the same opponent re-raises me.

As a result. I show him that I'm not going to sit there and let him abuse me. You would never call against their re-raises with AA or K K. The last concept when playing preflop is to take into account which position you are opening from and what your opponent's position is when he re-raises you. If he's not the aggressive type. Our four-betting size should be slightly more than double the amount Villain puts in. This is as far as I go in the leveling game.

The fifth option is to call in position. The fourth option is to call and check-raise flops when you flop overs with a gutshot. This is my least favorite action because I don't like being out of position.

Against these aggressive opponents. Although your opponent is re-raising light and you have position. Although we are intending to get it in preflop. You will obviously play for stacks when you flop a pair. If the effective stack sizes are less than BB. I would float flops with the intention of taking it away. Before calling. I'm calling all my premium hands as well. If I happen to be in a passive mood and have already allowed Villain to get away with three-betting me a few times.

This is a situation where it's easy to trap a habitual three-bettor from the blinds. We'll talk more about playing post-flop in "Three-Bet Pots" later in the book. My default line is to call. I shut down and wait for the nuts because Villain is anticipating a four-bet from me and will use the all-in maneuver with AQ and 99 type hands. The solution is to check-call with our sets on the flop and later streets in order to let them hang themselves. If villain holds something like KT.

If Villain is holding something like A3 or A7. Many players think it's hard to play How many times have we opened with A T from late position and smiled on an A 3 9 rainbow flop?

The example on the next page demonstrates how the player in position is forced to respond. But what if we don't want to fold on a low flop with our pocket pair? What typically happens afterwards gives the aggressive player an advantage. Let's go over a few reasons why we should flat these hands and identify the correct frequency to do so.

Flatting from the blinds with premium hands balances our flop check-raise hand range. This is because without those hands. Broadway turn and river cards allow for him to put enough pressure on us that we fold. They should check-fold—that's the easiest solution. On a flop composed of K 3 7. He's also getting a great price to satisfy his curiosity. Hero can't really raise the flop because BB is either representing the nuts or air. Hero is hoping BB is a bad B B: Then Example 6. BB donk-bets again.

Hero can't Hero BTN: BB donk-bets again for a half the River: Hero calls and gets shown AK or AQ. Turn is a queen. This is one of those Preflop: Hero is BTN with situations where you don't want to turn your hand 3 folds. You're in position and the amount Flop: So Hero gets UTG: Option 1: Premiums Option 5: AK Example 7.

So if he is never bluffing. Theoretical Spot We need Your opponents are not that crazy. I would generally call one bet and give up if he shoves the turn. Are they really bluffing with the correct frequency to allow you to continue? AK can be a lot tougher to play out of position in a massively bloated pot.

Once we've put that much money in though. You have the math at your disposal. For these reasons. The fact is.

As we can see. When we have A A in this spot preflop. I'm more likely to five-bet with A K. Very few players will be taking TT all the way.

Even fewer players w i l l be taking QQ all the way here. When we hold A K. Playing QQ out of position can be especially tough when an ace or king flops. We're still going to go broke on a flop. The major change is our opponent's re-raise and getrit-in range.

There are only half as many combinations of AA and KK three combinations each and just nine combinations of AK as opposed to sixteen. So how do we take advantage of these players? The answer is based on how often they follow up with a bet on the turn.

He can apply tremendous pressure on a variety of flops and make our lives miserable. I would check-call a lot of my range pairs. They usually have a pair to go with a draw and don't mind continuing. Against an opponent who makes lots of continuation bets but usually checks back the turn. Let's elaborate on my choices of action.

Despite knowing this. The Wonder Years Players enjoy the feeling of raising preflop and making a continuation bet on the flop. The first question is. The second question we should try to answer is. I'm more inclined to check-raise the flop with bluffs. Examples of such flops include. When we defend from the blinds against a late position opener. The turn will likely go check-check.

Against a tough opponent who floats or bluff-raises often on these drawy connected boards. Just make sure you check once in a while instead of continuation betting every flop.

To create this image. The relationship between the MP. These types of flops hit your preflop calling range because you can have two pair and sets. Floaty Flop Floats 34 Here are a few boards where you should float or bluff-raise when in position: Once this happens.

If you are playing against an aggressive opponent who will be firing a lot of barrels. If your flop raise gets called. When you open from the MP or the CO. One should limit his continuation bets as well.

Our high card holdings also decrease the chance of Villain holding an overpair. Against players who continuation bet a lot. Villain might talk himself into believing that your two pair was counterfeited. You want them to fold when you open a pot so you can get people out of position to play against you. You don't want the person to your left playing in your pots or floating you when he does play.

Cards that pair the board are the worst to continue bluffing with because they decrease the number of hands in your range. Check-call all the way. These hands are great to check-call low flops with because they have decent equity and we may have the best hand at times.

When you do have a strong hand. There is no exact percentage for it. If you are in position. One reason for this is that continuation bets are expensive. K J from the blinds. When the turn card lands. Against a competent opponent who will often shove the river after betting the turn on the listed turn cards.

This is an even better play if there's a flush or straight draw on the flop. Villain opens MP in a six-handed game. Look for flops that can hit your preflop calling range but rarely give these tight regulars a strong hand. What range of 1 fold. Hero calls from the CO with 89s. They will inevitably. If you don't know if villain does this. If Villain elects to call with such a hand. JJ on this flop doesn't look that good anymore. Before we decide whether to Example 8. Will this UTG: Against regulars who have a narrow UTG preflop raising range there are a lot of them in current games consider floating on paired flops such as 22Q.

The majority of players will auto-continuation bet Axx flops and will check-fold the turn if they are called on the flop. The flop comes.

Another type of board one should often float are Axx flops. Villain makes a standard continuation bet. He will bet BB: Keep in mind that if Flop: What if we don't hit and are facing a bet? In Example 8. The flop comes 2 5 T. Hero check-calls. Try Exercise 8. The problem for these players is they rarely check-call a flojp with a set.

Once they do that opponents are less likely to fire on the turn. Another line is the river check-raise? The Dreaded Small Pairs Players often have problems playing medium pocket pairs such as 77 to 99 post-flop when they don't hit a set.

Hero calls from the B B. Next time try check-raising on a flop of 2 5 T and see where that leads you. The turn is a jack. You are trying to take down the pot right there and also are protecting your hand.

Don't worry about "turning your hand into a bluff". Trust me. You will find more folds than you expect. Next time you play a session.

These aggressive opponents like to fire barrel alter barrel when they feel the turn and river cards weaken our range. You're not. Instead of the 77 you actually hold pretend you have55 and play like it. Players like to check-raise the flop with a set and hope to get paid off when a Villain has an overpair. Villain opens from the CO. The problem is our check-raising frequency is so low that we won't get paid off.

Once they catch on that you do slow-play sometimes. Hero check-folds the turn or he'll have a difficult guess on the river because Villain will likely fire at any river besides a deuce. Another line to take against players who fire too many barrels is flatting from the blinds with premium hands.

Villain doesn't often have a strong enough hand to stack off either. Villain will fire with a majority of his range here. Hold'em Manager or PokerTracker will help with this. This is a probably the biggest leak among low to mid- stakes players. If Villain has Turn: The board isn't that drawy so you are more likely to have a made hand that Flop: Once Villain checks the river. Let's look at why you will Preflop: Hero is BTN with win.

I Give How many times have you found yourself in situations where you raise preflop. In Example 9. If the board is draw-heavy on the flop and turn. After calling the turn BB: When players check. No decent player wants to be known SB checks. The first thing you should do is pay attention to players who will bet. We should empty the clip if turn and river are Broadway cards. We are obviously betting if we hit our straight as well.

The only Preflop: Hero is BTN with hands that make sense for Villain to check the 3 folds. On the river.. If Villain has a history of betting the flop and turn and check-folding the river. If he calls our flop bet.

If Villain has 8x or Then on the river Villain decides to check. On the turn you got suckered in by a small bet. SB checks. Villain might also fold a medium overpair such as 99 or TT since he realizes he can't beat anything but a bluff Although you might have a straight draw in your range.

If Villain has a total bluff. Villain called with and Example 9. Another line to use in this hand is to raise the flop.. If he has a hand like CO: If Villain has a flush. We might even have AA and decided not to raise the flop in order to play a small pot. He could have been bluffing with AQo Turn: That's because Villain is rarely bluffing on the river. If the river is a fourth flush card. Villain tanked and folded. So when Villain checks.

Let There Be Range

So when he checks CO: Another common situation is when you peel Example 9. One different line we can take on this hand is raising the turn. Hero calls SI 50 of the time. Before you think Villain will put us on a draw and call. We can safely fold to a check-raise despite getting great pot odds. The turn completes the SB: If Villain three-bets all-in on the turn. We don't necessarily have to raise the flop or turn with a straight. Hero tanks. Hero BTN: Hero is B T N with percentage of the time.

He likely has a draw himself or a marginal hand that wants to get to showdown for cheap.. By the river. But when he checks the river.

They will see four hearts. They do not understand polarized hand ranges. One thing we have going for us is that players rarely bluff-raise the river ace. If you are worried that our opponent will go into the leveling war with the.

If he does catch up. Check-raise any river if the turn is an ace and it goes check-check. The cool thing about these situations is when our opponents bet for value or as a bluff with a pair less than an ace. When such situations arise. Think of the times when an ace lands and you don't want to check back for pot control and bet for value.

These examples still apply if we are in position. This is because we usually have an ace as a kicker and when an ace lands and we check- raise. Check-raise an ace on the river if the turn goes check-check. Check-raise our draws if we check-call the flop and see an ace on the turn. If the ace is on the river. Assuming you are a solid regular. Even if our opponents have a pair of aces.

Your opponent won't think like this and will choose the safe route by folding to your check-raise the first few times you try this. Countering The Ace 1. You'll fold a majority of the time to a check-raise. Villain will have a pair of aces a fair amount of the time. Now he'll think that you're capable of pulling such a move. From then on he'll keep leveling himself.

There is rarely a showdown. It's not surprising that it's tougher to play against players who often check-raise with a wide range of hands. On to the next hand. In poker you only have a few options at your disposal: But after the concept of "don't turn your hand into a bluff became popular.

You can have AA. Don't worry if you're not the type to check-raise the flop with a small. You can also check-raise rivers for bluffs and value more often because it's no longer a spot where you either have the nuts or air. Of course. A tough player's opponents won't know when he's value-bating or bluffing. Chapter Line Variations From the examples we've shown. Keeping your range too heavy on either end will make it very easy for your opponents to exploit.

But let's say we want to play back because we don't enjoy others stealing our blinds.

About a year ago. When we used the word tougher. Here's a typical hand: A player from the cutoff or button raised preflop to steal the blinds. The best line we can take is check-raise the flop and bet the turn.

In this chapter. One of the blinds calls. As I recommended earlier in the "Preflop Play" section. Is there a way to counter a good. But having a reputation for these hands in your range allows you to check-raise bluff more because there are more combinations for you to check-raise for value with.

The blind usually check-calls one street before foiling to a turn bet. The flop comes Axx. Players rarely put you on these premium hands rightfully so when they consider your hand range during a hand. But like any bluff you pull in poker.I could write a much better book with the same concepts, in only just one month. Learn More- opens in a new window or tab Any international shipping is paid in part to Pitney Bowes Inc.

They get excited because of the preflop action and the amount of money in the pot so they stop thinking in terms of hand ranges. Folding equity can be solved using basic algebra. In Example 9. Every player can calculate how many possible card combinations are possible, that helps you in no way. The reason is when they do raise you on the river. They'll think.
