comment Interesting Spot in Penny Poker: Overpair vs Nit on Wet Board
I based my statement about how players at these stakes play on what I and a half dozen instructors at Grinderschool see from the collective view of coaching several dozen microstakes players and playing these games a fair amount in order to record videos over them. Games at $0.10/$0.25 and above have gotten tougher (though I don't think it's to the extent you indicate). Games below that level have not appreciably changed much. I do believe your take on AF is correct.

Small point, but that's actually 19% of hands, not 15%. Position might make villain call wider than I allotted for in my answer, but it's not going to make him open up this much, especially against an early-position opener. Should it? Absolutely, especially given stack sizes. But thinking that an opponent at the lowest stakes will make that adjustment is a really bad assumption.

My range is based on the stakes and the stats we have on how this opponent is playing. Players at this level are not adjusting their ranges based on stack sizes. Ever. His range could be wider on the button, but probably not by much - the super-low stakes online full ring games tend to lead tight players to play very tight vs a raise, and that's actually pretty profitable for them.

Both my student and I agree that villain is not bluffing. However, that doesn't make this a fold. What hands is villain playing that he can bet for value? How do we stack up against those hands?

There are straight draws and flush draws and both get there. That's starting out wet and then turning into a flood..

@AlG: Hero ended up timing out trying to decide what he could beat on a board that looks so ugly at face-value.

I like that you're distrustful of stats. I think you might have gone a bit overboard on what hands to include for a player playing as tight as we see here, but on the other hand, I think I took it too much at face value. The one other criticism I have here is the assumption that a player at $0.02/$0.04 is a competent player able to adjust to deep stack dynamics. I have no doubt that this is absolutely not the case for 99% of the players playing below $0.10/$0.25 online.

You and I have very different reasoning, but reached the same conclusion about every single street. Fascinating.

comment How to calculate expected value if I go All-in before flop with AK offsuit
@SoboLAN: It's pretty common for someone to fold everything but AA/KK to a 4-bet preflop. It's opponent dependent, but this is a relatively easy read to develop if you've spent some time playing with him. Even more so if you have stats in online play.
