Mate, that is a great analysis! And also the purpose of the channel. Thanks for taking the time explaining your thought process. I hope the hand helped you as well with your studying.Preflop
Seem pretty standard for both players.
Also seem pretty standard for both players.
Overbetting the turn is almost certainly a solver approved line, since SB has a big nut advantage on this board. The alternative could be to go for a check-raise. I would assume, that A7o is mostly a fold to this sizing, and that BB mainly called, because he had Ah in his hand. Meaning that already at this point his plan was to bluff a heart river. I have not checked it, but I would think, this is also a solver approved line, at least some percentage of the time.
Seem pretty standard for SB to go for another bet. There are still many worse hands like two pair, that can call. BB follow though on the plan, he likely made already on the turn, and jam. I think, SB has to call this off. Especially when he hold K of heart, since this significantly reduce the number of flush combos in BBs range. And I dont think, BB ever has a straight here. T7 folded preflop or on the flop, and QT folded on the turn except for QT of hearts, which is now a flush. So BB has a flush or nothing, and this time it was nothing.
I believe he calls pretty quickly because he is at the top of his range(given how the action went) and he has no tough decision, especially when villain can have several bluffs that contain the Ah.That's tough, he had top pair with bad kicker, but also had the A of hearts. Pocket K's losses to many hands like flushes, straights, higher set (unlikely), etc. I am surprised how quickly the pocket K's called. That player did seem concern on river though with small bet. He over bet turn, I think pocket K's wanted to take it down on turn. A6os shouldn't of called big turn bet, and much less seen the river. I don't blame that player for bluffing with so many draws out there.
Hard situation but this set of kings should be folding here way more often than calling down. The reason is because it owns none of the ace of hearts.
Most likely he calls with KK because he is at the top of his range, a useful concept to have in mind in general, but in these stakes, when the players know each other(these do), it matters a lot, especially in wide vs. wide range situations such as this one, when villain can show up with an obvious bluff like this(may be overbluffing as well).Hard situation but this set of kings should be folding here way more often than calling down. The reason is because it owns none of the ace of hearts.
On the flip side the other player made a very good bluffing putting a lot of pressure into any top sets and straights. But calling isn’t the end of the world here, maybe it had good readings to do so.
The hand was well played for both of players.
I ran this hand as my one free hand in GTOWIZARD---GW as played suggests a pot size bet with KK here range is 1/3 pot or pot
