re: Poker & $10 NLHE 6-max: is that right to bluff a fish
Thanks for everyone, it is great to get lots of discussion here.
I think everyone offer some good value piece.
No time to quote everything. Just like to collect every piece together.
First I will post hands against fish continuely, because the major problem is I found it is easy to spew against this type. As fish can be different, when we have +EV to fight to the end is important. We probably should give up a lot to balance. This case maybe is a special one so that it induces a lot conflict.
1. why should I 3bet?
here we have 50/50 different opinion. I think they both right in different angle. people who said do not 3bet, against most fish
it is the right way to control spew, even their AF is 5-10, it maybe dangerous to 3bet.
But here is a special case, as the villia AF is 42(45 hands), I think it is still +EV 3bet, when hit the flop, check to induce bluff. The only problem is I am not sure if his AF is still high if he is not the raiser, his cbet is 78%.
So in conculsion, normally the opinion do not 3bet is right I think, even against fish.like someone said, You don't beat maniacs by also getting crazy. That is what I will try to prevent in the long run.
But here I think it is the rare case that I can 3bet.
2. bet the flop
Normally I should bet the flop, it is a good place to bluff, the odd villian has ace is still small. But maybe I calculate too much I thought he will bluff bet and I will call if I hit on turn, he bluff turn and river, I can get more.Now I am not sure it is +EV strategy.
Besides his wtsd 33% is high especially his vpip is 43. I am not sure if the fold equity is big,maybe I am worng here.
3. bet the turn
Now I think I should bet the turn. the fold equity on turn should be larger than on flop. Besides even I want to induce bluff, I can bet here and when I hit the river I check, the aggressive villian will bluff a lot.I still can get same pot when I check call.
By the way I called it like I planed so that when I hit river I maybe get another extra bluff bet, do you think it is still spew.
