re: Poker & $10 NLHE Full Ring: No idea what im doing here. General advice?
Firstly I really enjoy hand analysis it's by doing this I think that I really learn about poker. This is my first post as I am new to this forum.
The way I will tackle this is by approaching it as if I was analysing one of my own hands.
Villian Stats (VPIP/PFR/AF): 32/13/2
Do I have enough of a sample to base any judgements on? How many hands do I have on him in the data base. If it is not a large enough sample the stats are useless to my decision making.
If it is a large enough sample then with a VPIP of 32, he is a loose player. So he will attempt to play a very wide range of hands. The PFR rate gives an indication that he is normally aggressive preflop but on his raisable hand range. This can be readily worked out from Poker Tracker or HE Manager. On it's own an Af of 2 on it's own adds little to the picture. AF = (Raise% + Bet%) / Call%. He takes the initiative half the time - but a VPIP of 32 will account for a decnt proportion of this.
Villain had N/A for 3betting over like 40 hands.
The sample size is too small to make an inference.
: Hero is MP2 with Q
UTG bets $0.25
, 2 folds
, Hero calls $0.25, 1 fold
, CO raises to $0.60
, 3 folds
, UTG calls $0.35, Hero calls $0.35
UTG 2.5BB bet is a rather weak raise, although it is early position. There's one caller then CO re-raises. He appears to be a loose/aggressive player. So from late positon this is not a very large re-raise (3.5BB). He also would have a relatively large range of playable hole cards. And he is in the powerful position of last to call after flop.
: ($1.95) Q
, K (3 players)
UTG checks, Hero checks, CO bets $1.39
, 1 fold
, Hero calls $1.39
CO needs to be holding - AA,KK,QQ or AK.
There is an opp flush draw.
Any bet would need to make the flush draw less attractive. Making a bet would give the initiative.
: ($4.73) 3 (2 players)
Hero checks, CO bets $8.01 (All-In)
, Hero ...
Obviously this is the dilema. Why would he go all in?
He has made the nuts or close (KJs or K10s.)
He has been checked into on the flop & river.
No possible Full House showing.
Attempting to take it down to pre-empt a full house.
His hole cards are a pair - and the all in is a bluff.
The question that remains for me is why did CO not attempt to add value?
