    This hand comes from a video in the coaching archive, 2017-11-15 archive. ( first hand: https://courses.bestpokercoaching.com/unit/view/id:20502 )
    Summary: NL10, EP vs BB, hero calls a 3bet with 88 from a reg with 4% OOP 3bet, probably even tighter with these positions.
    Flop comes 985 rainbow. In the discussion we conclude that this board favors EP more than BB. EP has all the nutz 99/88/55/98/76 + some over pairs. BB is capped at over pairs. We bet 40% pot to put pressure on BB’s calling range. BB with QQ+ it is an unhappy call and have to keep guessing on future streets and the pot is getting large…

    Q1: if we were the BB,with QQ+ what is our plan?

    A1: with QQ+ it is too weak to fold to just one bet on the flop. We will have to check-call one time on the flop (maybe up to 75% pot), check-call again on safer turn (maybe up to 50% pot and the bet size is not ascending), and check-fold the river as we do not expect the population would 3 barrel bluff that often. It is going to be a tough fold because the pot is large by the river.

    Q2: if we were the BB with AKs BDFD, EP bets small like 33% pot, what is our plan?

    A2: we could potentially call one time and hope EP is protecting something like TT. With the small size we have enough equity to call. Sometimes EP would check the turn so potentially we get to see 2 cards for this price. Folding, though very exploitable, is also not a big mistake imo.

    Q3: this is off topic a little. Let’s change the game to 9max and 200bb deep. UTG raises to 3bb and action folds to us. We are the BB with KK. We 3bet to 9bb and UTG calls. Same board comes. 985 rainbow. What is the plan?

    A2: I have no idea…

    Q4: Let’s get back to be the EP in 6max 100bb effective. What is the plan if we hold TT-QQ?

    A4: we could bet 33% as protection bet. BB can call with his over cards we get some value or if he folds his over cards we get his equity share. We hope for checking down if we get called on the flop.

    Q5: how about AQs BDFD? Can we stab as we have the range advantage?

    A5: we could bet 50% pot to fold out BB’s AK. If our backdoor draw comes OTT, especially with 4 straight, shove the turn and try to make AA fold. Unless of course villain is a station. In which case we take a free card.

    It has been more than half a year. Time definitely flies. Here is an update. Firstly, a graph.

    Overall result for the ~70k hands, all stakes ranging from NL10 to NL50 (plus rarely some NL100)
    All    

    NL10 

    NL25 

    NL50

    So I am running pretty well. Hope this continues. Definitely need to put in more volume though. 70k for 6 months is not a professional level at all.

    I joined CFP in August 2017. It has been almost a year and I have not been crushing due to my low volume. I have only myself to blame as I let outside events to distract me from working on poker. I understand most of them are just excuses and my effort is a reflection that I don’t want it bad enough.

    I am trying to attack it from another angle. Instead of making a somewhat far away goal and try to motivate myself to achieve it. I am making a smaller process goal that over time should convert to a productive habit. I remember that when I was young I used to play soccer everyday at school and it is just a habit without thinking too much about it. I am now trying to establish a habit that is sustainable and bite size, and at the same time, leads me toward becoming a better poker player.

    With that in mind, I am going to do these three things every home day (away days are the ones I am on the road and will serve somewhat as cheat days):
    1) HIIT exercise
    2) analyze one NLH hand – I used to do very detailed analysis which takes hours of playing with the ranges. For the interest of sustainability, I am going to limit the analysis to simplified hand reading and equity calculation, 10min max.
    3) analyze one PLO hand – I am new to PLO and even if I want to I won’t be able to analyze a PLO in too much detail. I am going to exercise the simple method of hand reading and see if the showdown hand is inline with the read.
