I know this is coming a bit late but I did not see anyone comment on the specific size. Stealing the pot can be profitable so depending on the board you might be right on target with the steal attempt. 3x however will not be the right size in any situation. If you are aiming to make your opponents fold draws (again depending on board) 4/5 bet will most ...

A lot of this answer is going to depend on the other players and their skill level and how they see your bet. For example, I play a lot of live games in Las Vegas. I would never do this move because most tourists cannot fold top pair. They would always call something like this. Why? Because tourists don't fly in from around the world to not gamble with their ...

Bluffing out of position is a craps shoot at best. You can pretty much bet much less then you are thinking. Straight and flush draws become unfavorable at something less then a pot size bet head up, and I would think that the only place you might want to attempt this play is head up, unless you are picking up a bunch of weakness tells. The higher your ...

There are a lot of players who insta-shove a lot at the start of freerolls, I suspect on the grounds that they'll either double up and play from a strong position, or get knocked out and move on to the next one - either way avoiding having to spend a lot of time grinding away with an average or small stack, which presumably isn't their bag. That's what you ...

I think the play is weak and very difficult to be successful at. The main weakness in doing an oak bluff is that it is usually out of character for a strong player. It smells of tells, and anyone with a hand is going to call you, unless they are a weak passive paranoid player. I kind of think any semblance of success with this bluff is not that one made a ...

Your question is a great example of some of the math that you need to carry out at the table. The first part is to know the value you're getting from the situation. Since Gus is calling a smaller amount than what's in the pot, there's an overlay available. To do this you take the pot divided by the amount you have to call: 5200/2200 = 2.36. You can express ...

It sounds like we're looking for game states. Assumptions: The game is Texas Hold 'Em We round bets to multiples of the big blind for calculating state We don't distinguish between raising and re-re-re-re-raising because we only care about "betting / checking outcomes." For the sake of example, we'll assume $0.50 / $1.00 blinds with a $100 buy-in. The ...

The more you get into the game, the more aggressive it gets so this is something you'll need to get used to if you want to progress. I'd recommend finding out if they're loose or passive aggressive first before trying to pick them off. To get a handle on this, you'll need to see a few of their showdowns. If they're playing the occasional wild hand then ...

The best way to beat this kind of player is tight-aggressive. you're not going to outplay this one, you're not going to bluff them, and you're certainly not going to be able to control them. All you can do is beat them. But it requires very disciplined uncreative play. You let them self destruct right into your stack. This kind of player is going to raise ...
