This is a discussion on Players Min betting flop and river... within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; I've started to see this strategy more and more in the freerolls and micro stake mtt's. A person will open or 3bet preflop and then
I've started to see this strategy more and more in the freerolls and micro stake mtt's. A person will open or 3bet preflop and then on the flop they will fire out a min bet, get 3-4 callers, then fire out another min bet on the turn, get another couple calls and then on the river they may pot size bet or another min bet. I notice most of the time if they min bet all 3 streets they will showdown with bottom pair maybe second pair, and if they have top pair or better they fire a pot size bet on the river. When I see the min bet I take it as weakness and if I have tp or better I 3bet them on each street and they a lot of the time call my 3 bet and then lead out a min bet on the next street.
Sometimes I get trapped and they have something strong and do this min bet stuff, but 8 out of 10 times its a weak pair or top pair weak kicker. I mean its absurd to bet 20 into a pot of 1200+
Yeah it's definitely different. I mean it goes something like this
On the flop, they lead out a min bet of 20, I raise to 110, they call. The turn comes they lead out another 20 min bet, I raise to 270 they call, river comes they again lead out 20 min bet, I raise to 600 and they call with second pair.
Makes no sence. I don't understand what they are trying to accomplish by min betting each street. They would have a better chance of getting me off my hand by betting like a normal person lol.
Sometimes, what went up, is forced to make the progressive raise on the flop, why if he passes, or chek, is a sign of weakness or not having hidden letters, it is also dangerous to let see, without increasing
Yeah, most time they are weak, rarely someone is holding a monster and tries to attempt you to increase the pot by betting. Maybe they are hoping to improve their hand or try to block you, but I also think it is a strange betting behaviour. :-D
Good observation! This lead and this sizing makes me think of two different scenarios. First one is that the player is a total new player or he is a totally good player who balances by that move his range!
It is like limping UTG with a monster hand. A move also made by a fish or by a regular, I believe you agree with me.
At this particular thread you mentioned that you have observed that in the freerolls so I will go with my first scenario.
