Redline go down; Blue line go up!
Open this up for discussion. Past 4-5 months my redline is super great; BUT, my blue line is terrible by comparison.
What I do realize is the need to be going to showdown w/ my made hands, and not simply pricing (creating bad odds
for / or removing a villains percieved continuation equity) ppl out of calling or raising.
In addition to the above I know there is more to the story than just this one part, various lines, and especially bet sizing come to mind.
I'd appreciate feedback and will post some hands ITT, as well as pose questions about various spots, and how we proceed on certain flops, vs. villain types, as well as understanding continuation ranges, based on our bet sizing.
Below is a hand that I believe is a perfect example of where I percieve a particular villain would either call my re-raise or shove over, but did not. In hindsight would flatting have been the optimal play?
Merge - $0.04 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 3
Hero (CO): $4.94
BB: $3.93 = 40/20/ AF-1 / cbet 100%
SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.04
Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero
, Hero raises to $0.12
, BB calls $0.08
Flop: ($0.26, 2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets $0.16
, BB raises to $0.54
, Hero raises to $1.54
I'm folding out Ax; and other air type hands, that MAY have decent equity on a later streets; when I re-raise; I should most likely let villain barrel off w/ air and based on turn then shove or re-raise?
