comment Micro Stakes, playing Big Aces pre-flop against multiple very loose opponents
This may be profitable at microstakes, but it certainly is not "your best bet".

comment Most common freerolling situations in holdem?
No, that would not qualify as freerolling because your opponent has good outs to beat you as well. I think truely meaningful freerolling situations happen the most in split pot games.

I should have been clearer. Both of those should work for limit, pot limit, and no-limit versions of hold'em and Omaha. They will also correctly handle hi/low. I used the latest Omaha version of Hold'em Manager for some hi/low games just a few weeks ago.

Both have versions that support Omaha as well. I do not know of anything to support stud or draw games.

You can absolutely know that you are freerolling, if you have the nuts and a draw to better nuts. That said, I agree that it's not relevant to your play in hold'em. It can be in Omaha.

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.
