also if btn is aggro with initiave, whats ur plan on A hi boards.. just call down.. or lets say it comes Q hi and u c/c or what not and board rolls out scary and he keeps firing.. whats ur plan then?0
A high board, depending on how aggressive btn is and how liberal of a hand ranking sheet the BB is using, I would sometimes call twice, sometimes only call once.On Q high, if it isn't rainbow non connected then I like leading since it removes us placing the fish in the same spot as before with us c/r him out of the hand. While it will leave us open to exploitation when we check, the bb should be calling often enough that we don't need to worry about btn getting too far out of line trying to exploit us.Honestly I don't like using the term fish ( not that I don't do it all the time). I think that it is lazy. An excerpt from Brian Townsends well when asked about gus hansen.
He is way way to loose, his style might work ok in tournaments against weaker opponents but he would not be sucessful at the 100/200 game.here are my notes non him followed by ther meaningNotes: DNB, CS, leads weak, PWHOP, NSOP, VBDNB: Do not bluffCS: calling stationPWHOP: Plays weak holdings out of positionNSOP: no sense of positionVB: value betleads weak: Leads into preflop raisers with marginal holdings
He could have just said fish as he would be in that line up. However the qualities that make him a fish, also affect how you should play against him.I liked KJ's hand mainly because he lead the flop. It is such a small move that is so important considering it flows from the same logic of keeping the fish in the pot that was used in his pre flop actions.While we are talking about Aba20's well, he is another somewhat relevant part.
The idea that we have to do anything 100% can be detrimental to our game. We should occasionally flat aces, it makes us more rounded and harder to play against.With KK, you would never go wrong just 100% re raising pre flop. That is almost certainly the game theory optimal line. However the fish is not playing GTO, so the best line for us might be different as it best allows us to exploit his mistakes. Doesn't mean we have to flat 100% though.
