    We have a lot of strong hands here and very little junk. We're going to bet everything.

    Suppose you bet 4bbs and the BB calls. The turn comes the 2♠. What is your strategy?

    The combination of the brick turn and the wide BB range makes this a solid spot to bet large with a polarized range. I probably have slightly more bluffs than I should here but I'm doing it as a bit of an exploit.

    Suppose you bet 14bbs and the BB calls. The river comes the T♠. What is your strategy?

    On the river we have 19.8BB left to bet into 41.9BB, giving the opponent roughly 3:1 on a call. If I jam my overpairs and better alongside my missed diamond draws and my KT/QT combos (because they both have straight blockers), I'll have a polarized range that's 50:15 value to bluff.

      Minor correction: T8s is MM on river, not JNK. It's certainly weak MM, but it is MM.

    Flop: From the 40bb GTO chart, about 40% of the BB's combos would call a 2/3 pot range bet.
    The BB's continuing range would be: top/second pairs and better; and 12-out and 15-out combos drawing to over pairs or better.

    A 25% range bet would not have put more money in the pot. So the 2/3 pot range bet sounds reasonable.


    However, a polarized betting range is used here for comparison purposes.

    Many draws are weak, and the UTG1 picks fewer draws.

    The bet size is big since the BB has something, and also since the UTG1's range is quite polarized.



    River: Bet range.

      Suppose you raise to 2.2bbs, the BB calls and the flop goes heads-up. The flop comes J-9-4. What is your strategy?

      I wanted to bet my entire range here but I don't think we get to bet our entire range with a 67% pot bet sizing?

      So I'm mixing some hands that will bet call and bet fold to a xr.

      OOP doesn't do much xr vs a larger bet size.

      I actually think the solver is going to split this range quite a bit between small sizing and large sizing with maybe 10 - 15% checks.

      I have a weak checking range here but I think my range wants to mostly keep betting.

        • We have a substantial range advantage here so I thought bet range, but as someone else pointed out we bet large so it seems we should be polarized, and we've seen in the past the solver will sometimes opt to go large and polarized even with large range advantage to generate the most value from our nuts. Will run again polarized.

        • Pretty straightforward, betting TPTK+ for value, our worst underpairs, wheel draws, some gutshots that unblock diamonds, and some diamond and straight draws s bluffs, some of those bluffs also spade draws.

        Suppose you bet 14bbs and the BB calls. The river comes the T♠. What is your strategy?

        • Overpair with a spade and better bet for value, bluffs block spades and 87​​

        Polarized Flop


        • TPTK+ for value, checking hc combos of over pairs and some flush draws to bolster checking range and give us coverage on rivers
        • Missed diamond draws also included in bluffs

          Something that I've recently picked up on is that we don't typically bluff bricked front door flush draws.

          kkep good point, I assume because we block their auto-fold range. Probably worth going through and figuring out what flush draws Villain is most likely to have, see which busted FDs block their auto-fold range the most

        Suppose you raise to 2.2bbs, the BB calls and the flop goes heads-up.The flop comes J♠-9♦-4♦. What is your strategy?

        It is a very wet board with a lot of draws and also interacts very well with the BB range. However we do have a very strong range advantage and a reasonable nut advantage as well. So we get to range bet this board and since the board interacts pretty well with the BB range we can also use a pretty large size(4bb into 4.9bb pot.. 5.9 if there is an ante)




        Suppose you bet 4bbs and the BB calls. The turn comes the 2♠. What is your strategy?

        The blank turn actually helps the BB since we range bet the turn. So we need to polarize on the turn making sure we have some top pair hands in our checking range.



        Suppose you bet 14bbs and the BB calls. The river comes the T♠. What is your strategy?

        Since we bet large on the flop and turn we will be checking back the river a lot on this very connected river card. We are really only betting sets or better. We have a half pot bet left behind and we have close to the ideal 1:3 ratio of bluffs to premium hands when we bet.

          Breaking this down does not work well so Im actually betting everything I C-Bet with.
          This board is good for my range the turn does not connect well with the BB after calling flop.



          River:

          Betting Top top and better, although I could see AJ being a check back as its getting harder to find worse hands that will call, That being said it is only a 1/2 bet...
          Also I added the Ax to junk, but realize sometimes they will win at showdown once in a while. For bluffs...

              On the river you can't get check-raised. We started with 40bb. Our river bet is going to be a 1/2-pot shove.

            C-bet strategy - I have a strong range advantage on this board and I am in position. So I think this is a range bet.

            Turn - Since I am polarizing my strategy, I was unsure which premium hands I should keep in my marginal range to protect my checking range. I picked AA and 2p hands.

                I think you are to value heavy on the river. Maybe check AA KK 87s and or some of the AJ combos which will balance your value to bluffs a bit better. BTW I'm not sure where you're 18 bluffs are coming from? I count 14, the 55 and bricked diamond draws?
                Also you can't have As2s and we don't typically bluff bricked front door flush draws I don't think.

                kkep, Really check 87s on the river? Shouldn't we check 99(set) before 87(straight)? 87 not only beats 99, it also blocks less of V's calling range. And do we think V is checking (trapping) with any flushes or better straights than 87 on the river with only a 1/2 pot bet left?

                Scotty I was just suggesting the value to bluff range was to value heavy but I now I actually think he nailed the ratio.
                I believe bricked front door flush draws don't get bluffed that often. We're kind of blocking a portion of the V's folding range so we might want to be checking back more 1 pair combos and giving up with some of those bricked FDFD bluffs.

                  In your preflop range, it is generally fine to just use 1 color for your entire RFI range. Also, you should use the 4 color system Red/Premium; Blue/Draws; Green/Marginal; and Black/Junk on all post flop streets. Jonathan likes to see that when he reviews the answers.

                  If you do not have all 4 and only those 4 he is unlikely to pick your answer for review in the webinar. Even if you show that category in the range, even with 0 hands added will be better than chopping off the category completely.

                  ThePhilosopher,

                  On the FLOP: You can bluff more. 2:1 Bluff:Value would be ideal here. You're betting 65 combos for value. That means you can bluff up to 130 combos of draw. Consider bluffing your your backdoor spade draws in addition to your diamond draws.

                  On the TURN: Consider continuing to bluff with your 6d7d (and 6s7s if you made the adjustment above). On the turn, 1:1 Bluff:Value is ideal. You're betting 53 combos for value, so you can easily add the 6d7d,6s7s to your current 45 bluffs.

                  On the RIVER: You might be over-bluffing here. If you're only going to bet 11 combos for value, and you can only bet 1/2 pot, 1:2 Bluff:Value should be your max, and even that might be optimistic.

                  Possible fixes: Bet your sets instead of checking them. This isn't crazy. After all, is V often checking behind with a straight with only a 1/2-pot bet left?

                  Side note: Your actions say RAISE when they should say BET.

                  Those are my comments on yours. I'm looking forward to your comments on mine.

                  Your flop checking range is to weak.
                  You don't have AKo AQo on the turn
                  You don't have the TsX on the river but the range analyzer catches that and it looks like you have some straights as river bluffs KQo

                    Jonathan is looking for answers that use the 4 categories of Premium made hands, Draws, Marginal made hands, and junk. In this question you can automatically pull them up by clicking the postflop aggressor option.

                    Watch this video for instructions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAd4...e=emb_imp_woyt

                    Then watch a couple of the past homework webinars to see how Jonathan answers the questions to get an idea of what he is looking for.

                      In a tournament against competent opponents with a 40bb stack, you are Utg+1 and action folds to you. What is your strategy? As I’m in early position, I can’t raise too wide, I don’t raise the lower pairs, or lower unsuited Aces.

                      My 40bb opening raising range.

                      Suppose you raise to 2.2bbs, the BB calls and the flop goes heads-up. The flop comes Js,9d,4d. What is your strategy? He is competent, so will call pre-flop very wide with a capped range. No AA-JJ or AK, possibly no AQ. He will bluff some and call all suiteds and most unsuited (except the worse). We are in position, so I have to assume he’s checked to me. I have positional and nut advantage. However, he has a significant range advantage: he has 19 x J’s; I have 8; he has 19 x 9s, I have 7; he has 15 x 4s, I have 1. I will C-Bet often with a small bet size. I have balanced my betting and checking ranges. When I bet, there is 3.7bbs in the pot. He has to call 1.2bb to win 4.9. He gets 4:1 on the call and needs about 20% equity to continue. Pot size is 4.9bbs. His MDF 1-2.2(1 + 1.2 + 0.5) = He needs to defend 19% of the time.

                      Suppose you bet 4bbs and the BB calls. The turn comes 2s. What is your strategy? Again, he will have checked to me. I still have positional and nut advantage. I keep betting (for protection) as there are str88 and flush draws out there. The 2 doesn’t change much (poss’ wheeldraw) but the spade brings a possible 2nd flush. I can also rep the flush on the river, if it completes. I have balanced my betting and checking ranges. By the turn, the pot is 12.9bbs. When I bet the flop, he had to call 4bb to win 12.9. He gets about 3:1 on the call and needs about 23% equity to continue. His MDF 1-4(4 + 4.9) = He needed to defend 56% of the time. He’s competent, so could be floating 2 x streets. He has still never shown aggression, or even interest in the hand.

                      My turn strategy.

                      Suppose you bet 14bbs and the BB calls. The river comes Ts. What is your strategy? Again, he will have checked first, so has shown no aggression throughout the hand. He appears to have marginals, or can be floating/drawing. The river makes the board extremely slippery, with straights and spade flushes possible. It’s a board I check back some on but I continue to bet with a few value hands and bluffs. On the turn, the pot was 12.9bbs. He checked and I bet 14bbs. He had to call 14 to win 26.9bbs. He got 1.92:1 to call and needed 34% equity to call. The ranges will be closer and all his junk will be ditched. I have appeared strong throughout and keep betting. His MDF on the turn was. 1-14(14+12.9). He needed 48% equity to continue. The pot by the river is 40.9bbs. He has just under 20bbs left (half pot). He wouldn’t call a full pot bet with a gutshot, so I don’t think he has a str88. He might not have called a full pot bet on the flop with a back-door spade draw. He may call as he is pot committed. I continue an aggressive line with a triple barrel, with value hands and bluffs as my range is pretty strong. I have checked some top hands which can win at SD. Think I should also bet my overpairs, for value here as well.

                        Suppose you raise to 2.2bbs, the BB calls and the flop goes heads-up. The flop comes J♠-9♦-4♦. What is your strategy?

                        All of my ranges assume that the BB checks each street, because it appears that the questions assume that, without explicitly saying so.




                        Suppose you bet 4bbs and the BB calls. The turn comes the 2♠. What is your strategy?

                        Pot = 5.9BB + 8BB = 13.9BB. Effective Stack = 40BB – (BB’s 1 + 6.2 = 7.2) = 32.8 held by the BB. SPR = about 2.5/1. If I bet 8BB on turn, then effective stack is 24BB, which can be shoved into pot of 30BB.



                        Suppose you bet 14bbs and the BB calls. The river comes the T♠. What is your strategy?

                        Pot = 13.9 + 28 = 41.9BB. Effec. Stack = 18.8 BB. Less than 2.5:1 SPR.

                        Given that I bet big on the turn, BB should have a strong river range. I’m checking JJ and 99 to strengthen my river checking range, and for balance.

                          Gin it does not look your charts are complete. On all streets you should have the 4 categories that Jonathan looks for, Premium, Draws, Marginal, and Junk. Even of junk is 0 it should be in there. However, on the flop you should have some junk in your range. You have some hands suit selected and I assume the unselected suits are in junk. You can manually enter the number of hands into the junk count.

                        Suppose you raise to 2.2bbs, the BB calls and the flop goes heads-up. The flop comes J♠-9♦-4♦. What is your strategy?

                        Pot = 5.9
                        We have a big range advantage, ≈60:40. We have the nut advantage (We have all sets, AA, KK, & QQ. BB calling range probably doesn't have top set, AA, KK, or QQ). This board connects well w/ BB PF calling range. Therefore: Don't bet range. Do bet frequently. Do bet large.

                        Natural breakdown:
                        44+, A2s+, K6s+, Q8s+, J8s+, T8s+, 98s, 87s, ATo+, KTo+, QJo; Group 1 [DRW]: (AsQs+, AsTs, As8s-As5s, As3s-As2s, AdQd+, AdTd, Ad8d-Ad5d, Ad3d-Ad2d, KQs, KTs, Ks8s-Ks6s, Kd8d-Kd6d, QTs, Q8s, T8s, 87s, KQo, KTo); Group 2 [MM]: (TT, 88-55, A9s, A4s, AhQh+, AcQc+, K9s, QJs, Q9s, JTs, J8s, T9s, 98s, AQo+, QJo); Group 3 [PM]: (JJ+, 99, 44, AJs, KJs, J9s, AJo, KJo); Group 5 [JNK]: (AhTh, Ah8h-Ah5h, Ah3h-Ah2h, AcTc, Ac8c-Ac5c, Ac3c-Ac2c, Kh8h-Kh6h, Kc8c-Kc6c, ATo)

                        Problems with natural breakdown: DRW:PM is too low (72:53).
                        Fix: Move least vulnerable PM (top set) to MM to strengthen x-range; Move BDSD+OC (AT) & 3rdPair+OC (A4) to DRW.
                        We're still not up to 2:1, but I think this under-bluffing is better than moving AA, 99, or 44 to MM or moving 55 or 66 to DRW.

                        Adjusted breakdown:

                        Pot = 13.9

                        Natural breakdown:
                        QQ+, 99, 44, AJs-ATs, A4s, AsQs+, As8s-As5s, As3s-As2s, AdQd+, Ad8d-Ad5d, Ad3d-Ad2d, KTs+, Ks8s-Ks6s, Kd8d-Kd6d, QTs, Q8s, J9s, T8s, 87s, AJo-ATo, KTo+; Group 1 [DRW]: (AsQs+, AsTs, As8s-As5s, As3s, AdQd+, AdTd, Ad8d-Ad5d, Ad3d, KQs, KTs, Ks8s-Ks6s, Kd8d-Kd6d, QTs, Q8s, T8s, 87s, KQo, KTo); Group 2 [MM]: (A4s, As2s, AhTh, AcTc, Ad2d, ATo); Group 3 [PM]: (QQ+, 99, 44, AJs, KJs, J9s, AJo, KJo)

                        Problems with natural breakdown: DRW:PM is too high, 70:50
                        Fix: Check some DRWs. I'm choosing to check these 20 combos: {KQo, KhQh, KcQc, KhTh, KcTc, Qh8h, Qc8c, 8h7h, 8c7c}. There might be better choices, but I don't know which those would be or why.

                        Click image for larger version  Name:	FTT Range Analysis-4.png Views:	1 Size:	146.1 KB ID:	48912

                        Problems with above range:

                        Problem 1: We're under-bluffing. This seems okay because after calling our pot-sized turn bet, V's likely bluff catchers are Jx, Tx (From her SDs on turn), and 9x. Will she fold Tx or 9x to a 1/2-pot river-shove? If not, maybe we need to bluff even less?

                        Possible fixes:
                        We could have bet more MM and DRW on the turn so we had more DRW to bluff on river. That fix seems worse than the problem.
                        We could check KJ or even AJ. That seems too nitty at this stack depth.

                        Problem 2: When V has a busted DRW (which she elected not to bluff), some of our BLFs (AK, AQ and maybe A3-A8) beat her anyway, so why bluff if she won't fold her Jx, Tx, or 9x when she has those?

                        Possible fix: We could check behind with AK&AQ but that makes problem 1 worse.

                        I'm going to commit to the current problems with this range rather than introduce these new problems by trying to fix it.

                          Hey Scotty thanks for commenting on my first hw submission. I have a question for me and thought for you. 1) Is it standard to label river bluffs as "draws"? 2) In favor of nitting it up, since this is a tournament not cash, and your opponent already called two barrels, might you want to underbluff the river? Is worse than KJ calling a shove here? I think if KJ gets called you are out of the tournament. Worse than KJ will usually fold to a shove (?). Hence, using KJ as a bluff seems to be counterproductive, and it isn't the a great candidate to bet for value. I realize that in short stack play top pair 2nd kicker is typically good enough to get it in, but you've already been called on two streets, so KJ is pretty marginal imo. I'd be happy to win the already sizeable pot without risking busting on a marginal hand.

                          ThePhilosopher. You're welcome, and thanks for commenting on mine. Here's some answers. They may not be right, but they are answers.

                          1) No. I should have kept the blue color but labeled them "Bluff." I also should have been clearer and stated the action as "shove" rather than "bet."

                          2a) Nitting up a bit and under-bluffing the river might be the better option here, especially if I'm the one who'd be all in. (The question states that we started with 40bb effective stacks, but it doesn't state who's got 40bb stack or what the larger stack is. If I started the hand with 100bb vs V's 40, maybe I could even over-bluff?!?

                          2b) With only a half-pot shove on the river, I'm thinking KJ and QJ would both call. The question for me about whether to bet KJ for value on the river is: how likely is V to just check-call AJ (or better) on the flop and turn? I'd certainly check-raise all-in on the flop or turn if I was in V's seat with AJ. Also, how likely is V to check 2-pair or better on the river with only a half-pot bet left? The more likely she is to trap (or nit-up) with these hands, the less often I should bet ANY of my one-pair hands. My thinking is that on this river, AA-KJ are all the same hand. I should either check 'em all or bet 'em all. I could be wrong. Maybe AJ and KJ aren't the same hand on this river after V has called on two streets, as you suggested, but my analysis (flawed as it may be) convinces me (for now) that they are.

                          You have no junk on the flop, but you have suit selected hands hands. This would indicate that you did not do the range accurate. In the instruction video for the Range Analyzer, Jonathan explains how to address those junk hands in the analyzer.

                          What Jonathan finds important, is not just the hands you choose to bet, but the balance of the numbers in categories.

                          This is my first homework
                          More information concerning the tournament would have been helpful such as
                          1. What the buy was in; is it a $10 online or a $500 live?
                          2. How many opponents 200 or 20,000?
                          3. How close is the bubble?
                          4. How many times have the opponent and I been in hands together?
                          5. If this is online what are the opponent's HUD stats

                          My answers will be based on the assumption that this is a $30 online tournament with 1721 opponents remaining out of a field of 551 the bubble is at 100 players.

                          I would fold everything but 17% of my range


                          Flop hit my set Jacks, nines, and fours and bet the two pair combo's bet; again assuming that the nine and four are not the also spaids. If Jack Nine and four are spaids call


                          the turn fold


                          The river already folded to spaids

                            Hi Zman - welcome to Pokercoaching.com.

                            When you are completing your homework, use the range analyzer to show every action. Jonathan wants us to split every hand in our range into 1 of 4 categories post flop: Premium made hands, draws, marginal made hands, and junk. So your completed homework should have a range analyzer image for the flop, turn and river as well.

                            In these hands, unless Jonathan mentions it it is assumed that there is no ICM pressure in the tournament hands. It is also assumed that it is a full table of 9 players and when he says "competent" player it is assumed that this player is playing close to GTO strategies.

                          Pot = 5.9bb
                          Stack = 37.8bb
                          SPR = 17.18:1

                          We have a large range advantage over the BB. We also have a ton of value hands. We are betting the entire range.


                          Suppose you bet 4bbs and the BB calls. The turn comes the 2♠. What is your strategy?


                          Pot = 13.9bb
                          Stack = 33.8bb
                          SPR = 2.43:1

                          Suppose you bet 14bbs and the BB calls. The river comes the T♠. What is your strategy?

                          SPR = 0.47:1

                          An overabundance of value hands. A low SPR<1...
                          We are jamming everything. Should have jammed the Turn!

                              Your post flop images should contain the 4 categories that Jonathan teaches us to place every hand in. They are Premium made, draws, marginal made, and junk. Please see other homeworks above as an example.

                              It seems like you are not removing the hands from your range that you have checked on previous streets.

                            Using the UTG+1 RFI 40bb GTO chart, I would be using this strategy. I combined some percentages for specific hands.

                            I believe we are supposed to range bet on these J-high boards. We have so many strong holdings and the BB doesn’t. However, I don’t mind checking some hands to protect my checking range. I debated checking top set, but, sub 40 bbs, I elected to continue. I don’t typically bet the weaker flush draws when we are shallower because I don’t want to get c/r and have to fold out equity. However, I think that since we have so many strong holdings, we should bet everything.

                            This turn shouldn’t change much with the hand, but, I am giving up some bluffs now so I do not go to the river with too many bluffs.

                            I think we are supposed to check some strong hands and nutted hands. I checked some straights and some flushes with the intention to check/call. I am check/folding roughly 50% and check/calling roughly 50%. I am continuing with all my missed draws since I have so many premium holdings with this river.

                              This is my first homework posting.

                              On this board, have a slight range advantage (60%) vs BB call range , and a slight nut advantage, as we both have all the sets, but only I have all the pocket QQ,KK, and AA, and he might be 3-betting some of his pocket JJ preflop. I should be betting this board frequently and since I chose a larger size (almost pot), I am slightly polarizing my range c-betting at a slightly lower percent with my strongest value hands and bluffs.

                              This turn does not improve any of my opponents draws, although it does bring in a backdoor flush. I would be barreling this turn most of the time. However, since I have chosen to overbet the pot ($14 into a $13.40 pot), I would be polarizing my range, betting again with my strongest value hands and highest equity bluffs.

                              I only have a half pot sized bet on this river, giving me little fold equity. This also means that my opponent will have to call quite wide given the pot odds. So I will be betting all my nut flushes and straights and my bluffs will contain hands with blockers to the nuts but without blockers to the missed nut flush draw, including some over-pairs w/nut blockers so that when the opponent does call with top pair type hands (as he should), I still win.

                                I have been thinking about this the last couple days and have gone back and forth about "bluffing" the overpairs with nut blockers. I am "bluff" heavy for my bet sizing, but I think i might be sacrificing more value by not betting these combos. I would appreciate any insight anyone has on this strategy.

                              Pot 5.9bb, BB s/h wide calling range say 30%-no prem, we have 58% rng adv and nut adv & pos, assume BB cked I would range bet.

                              Pot 13.9bb, bet 2/3's pot w/ rng. will fold out lot of BB's junk & only calls with pairs above bottom pair and better, we no longer have rng adv. and BB has more hands that connect

                                    My first homework so apologies if I have done it wrong.
                                    I was thinking here about adding a limping range from 22-55. Was also thinking about limping with AA and KK in early position, hoping for a raise. However with little information on my opponents I decide not to have a limping range here as I am unsure if I will get the required action from later positions. If I had information like the button often raises limped pots, or if EP limps everyone limps I might include a limping range. As I don’t have this information at this point. I only have an opening range.

                                    I have marked my Premium Hands, Draws, Marginal Hands and Junk. However I think on this board I would bet with almost all of my range here. The BB has so much junk in their range, and I think I have about 65% equity. I don’t think I have the a nut advantage as BB will have all sets, more 2 pairs. Even my junk like AKo and AQo has some equity. My non diamonds suited hands still have backdoor straights and over cards. Is there a case to slow play my monster hands like sets of JJ and 99, hoping BB will catch something? Or is this inviting trouble from straight and flush draws?
                                    If BB checks I bet everything small.

                                    2s is a brick, BB folded out almost all of his duces after the flop. It does allow him slightly more flush draws and small straight draws.
                                    I would have the same range as previous but would check my marginal made and junk and raise my draws and premium hands this time due to the BB calling the previous street.

                                    I have a really strong range here. I think the BB still has a huge number of marginal made hands like J8, J7, J6. They also have a lot of busted Diamond draws. They do have more made straights and two pair combination than us. However overall we are good most of the time with this range.
                                    I would bet 16bb for value with everything other than my busted diamond draw. I think we can get a call out of any top pair. If BB raises large I think we need to fold our single pairs including AA (is this too tight?). I just don’t think he bets here unless he has a set or better. We call with our sets and re-raise with our flushes. We also call with AA and AJo where we have the A of spades blocker.
