WPH #488: Rampage Poker TORCHES Again! [Can He Get LUCKY???]

Watch as famous poker vlogger Ethan ‘Rampage Poker’ Yau finds his best way to punt his chips off during a Hustler Casino Live stream!

This is a unique format in which they are playing a $25/$50 Ante Game, which means every player has to post $25 before the hand (apart from the button who posts $50). The players only have to call the $25 extra to enter the pot and make up the big blind. The action starts left of the button which is considered UTG.

Jonathan discusses how ranges should be wider in this type of format due to how much dead money is already in the pot preflop. You should be looking to play hands that can make the nuts, or close to! Having said that he is not a huge fan of the limp/re-raise from Rampage. He has a hand that should much prefer just calling the $600 raise. Jonathan likes the min click 4-bet raise from Luda Chris with his ATo. It’s not a great hand to just call with and against such an aggressive opponent such as Rampage Poker you need to find a wider range of hands to bluff 4-bet with.

In the second poker hand Jonathan thinks Rampage is far too wide in raising Q7h, you need to pick hands that have better playability postflop. On the JJ4ccx flop, Francisco decides to lead with his 66 which Jonathan thinks is a mistake. You generally will only be called against opponents that either have you crushed or extremely good equity against your small pair. There is also a chance that you may get raised which turns your hand into a bluff catcher in a potentially big pot by the river. Rampage uses an interesting small raise size on the flop which signals to his opponent’s that his hand is so strong that they are drawing extremely thin to beat him. The problem is in games that everyone is extremely loose then you are still going to get called very frequently. On the river Jonathan thinks the only way that Rampage could get Francisco to fold a full house would be to put maximum pressure on him by putting him all-in or very close to. Remember that a lot of players do not like to fold full houses!
