  • why half pot and not quarter pot on flop ?super close turn action ?

    here is an interesting hand

    - Hold'em No Limit - 6,000/12,000 (1,500 ante) - 8 players

    UTG: 119,530 (10 bb)
    UTG+1: 75,876 (6 bb)
    MP: 252,722 (21 bb)
    MP+1: 157,432 (13 bb)
    CO: 157,942 (13 bb)
    BU: 298,914 (25 bb)
    SB: 80,649 (7 bb)
    BB (Hero): 211,796 (18 bb)

    Pre-Flop: (30,000) Hero is BB with Q♣ J♣
    2 players fold, MP raises to 24,000, 4 players fold, Hero calls 12,000

    Flop: (66,000) T♣ 8♠ T♥ (2 players)
    Hero checks, MP bets 19,140, Hero calls 19,140

    Turn: (104,280) T♦ (2 players)
    Hero checks, MP bets 30,241, Hero calls 30,241

    River: (164,762) 2♦ (2 players)
    Hero checks, MP checks

    Total pot: 164,762

    MP shows A♦ 3♣ (three of a kind, Tens - higher kicker)
    (Equity - Pre-Flop: 53%, Flop: 58%, Turn: 74%, River: 100%)

    BB (Hero) shows Q♣ J♣ (three of a kind, Tens)
    (Equity - Pre-Flop: 47%, Flop: 42%, Turn: 26%, River: 0%)

    MP wins 164,762

    solver says

    preflop flatting is the best play by far

    on flop i am supposed to check 84 percent of the time and to bet half pot 16% of the time

    my question is why half pot and not quarter pot ?

    is this because i should bet infrequently and bigger because i dont have the range advantage but i have the nut advantage because i have more T in my range ?

    when villian bets i am supposed to (check) raise 100% of the time here because XR has a tiny bit more EV than XC ! (see photo1)

    as played on the turn solver wants me to open check 100% of the time , this is the only play that makes sense as played

    when villian bets to me it is a very close spot according to the solver

    most often the solver would check fold (95%) and check raise 5% but check-calling has only a little less EV (see photo2), so check calling is only a small mistake

    as played on the river it is a tough decision as well

    the solver would check 63% of the time and bet small 37% of the time (see photo3)

    very interesting hand !

    even i made small mistakes i played very good according to the solver (see photo 4)
