Jonathan is joined by popular poker vlogger – Rampage Poker! They discuss and analyze a poker hand that Rampage played during a $2,000 World Series Of Poker (WSOP) event.
This poker hand starts with Rampage opening from the hijack with KJo and he picks up two callers; the cut off and small blind. The effective stack depth is important in this hand as it is only about 30bb which generally means that a players stack off threshold should be lower as there is less playability than if the effective stack was 100bb.
The flop K32xss gives Rampage top pair and a backdoor flush draw. Jonathan discusses the merits of potentially using this hand to check/raise. He explains how he thinks that a lot of poker players overfold in multiway pots which causes him to bet at a higher frequency than Game Theory Optimal (GTO) might suggest.
However, in general you should be checking a lot in multiway pots with your marginal made hands as it is difficult to correctly identify all of your opponent’s ranges. For this reason you should also be mixing in some value hands to check-raise with. Jonathan also discusses which specific poker hands might want to check-raise as a semi-bluff.
Remember that when opponents call a small check raise their range will be wider than if they call a bigger check raise. Use this extra information to help you narrow their range and proceed accordingly. As the effective stack becomes shallower, your bet and raise sizes should be smaller so that you can work in more bluffs that can fold to a raise or 3-bet.
Jonathan explains that hands you should find to hero call are ones that beat all of the draws and when those draws do not come in on the turn. It is important to have a poker hand that does not block the draws that your opponent could have.
