3 BETS on PLO
One of the most powerful things you can do in PLO. Master 3betting.
1. Isolate yourself from weaker opponents
2. More flexibility and more likely to get into heads up. Remember that the more players in the pot, the less poker you end up playing. Everyone plays the 3BET jackpots very easy. At HU Pots you can bluff slimmer, semi bluff slimmer and bet on slimmer value. Sometimes the hands are better played in various ways, so you just have to call (which is the same in the Hold Em od course).
3. People throughout poker are poorly adapted to aggression. The more opportunities you have to make an opponent uncomfortable to make a mistake, you should follow that line. Most players will not adjust to your aggression. They will most likely play fit or fold or they will adjust too much by betting that you are light or stacked with light.
4. Big Pots IP = + EV
Features that make 3APUESTAS more profitable
1. Gross Equity: indicates the strength of the flop against other hands in play. Hands with gross equity are great pairs and broadways. Remember, when the SPR drops, we want to dominate our opponents in the stacking ranges. Gross equity hands often dominate our opponents’ stack ranges. The flop has many combined draws. For example, par + FD, higher ladder projects, etc. Broadways also made hands cooler.
2. Fluid Equity Distribution-SPR in 3BET pots usually round 2-5. If players are making it lighter in 3BET pots, we want hands that get equity on the flop more often. So that we can stack properly and pick up the big cans more often. We also have more options on back streets. In 3BET pots, if we recheck in position, we can gain more equity on the turn a higher percentage of the time. More polarized hands don’t give you this opportunity. The barrel also becomes more profitable on later lanes.
3. Lack of walnut: it does not mean that walnut is bad. Crazy matters less at HU Pots. If you have 2 hands of equal strength, it is often better to 3LET the less crazy hand because it will help you clean up your non-crazy projects. When you’re 3BETTING crazy hands, you’re sacrificing some of your implied odds value that comes from chilling someone with deeper stacks. If you 3 BET on a non-nut coat, you can promote its non-nut components, which are worth more in shallower SPRs. Most of the time in PLO you will come across hands that should be 3 = bet or fold due to lack of insanity.
Hands that are good for 3BETS fall into 3 categories:
1. Premiums: good for 3BET in almost any pre-flop scenario to gain value and drive an advantage. Good post-flop playability because the equity distribution is very fluid.
2. Playability Pool: Same as Premium Pool, but doesn’t necessarily have a raw capital advantage, but makes up for it in post-flop playability. Strong flops combo draw, which is the easiest way to win stacks in 3BET pots. These hands are good for 3BET against players both flop before and after the flop in 3BET pots. Usually he dominates his stack outside the ranges. Very important considering that people do not like to fold 3BET pots.
3. Expansion pool: Don’t play well in multi-way jackpots with a single raise. They play best against fit or fold opponents. We should BET on them as much as possible. Good enough to widen with these hands because they are soft enough to provide playability in a HU post flop pot.
Who should we BET more on?
2 key factors to consider
1. PFR-Extend your range of 3 value BETS to opponents who do not fold far enough for 3 BETS. Or extend the bluff by 3 BETS if they fold too far to 3 BETS. You want to target more aggressive starters with 3 BETS. The tighter someone’s aperture range, the less likely they are to use their magnification range to 3BET. Always look for excuses to play HU with bad players. If you are undecided about 2BETS and a weaker opponent opens, you should probably be 3BETS to get HU.
Responses to CBETS in 3BET boats
2 big mistakes you should try to exploit.
1. Punish opponents in shape or fold. For example, anyone who plays fit or retires can make 3 bets with any of the 3 categories discussed. They will do C / F if they fail, C / C with a medium force hand, and C / R with the nuts. The quickest way to lose money at poker is to build pots only to give them up on the back streets. Don’t call 3BETS and C / F flops. It is very easy to bleed money this way.
2. Punish players who stack too lightly. Stick to BETTING on the premiums.
Against whom should we avoid expanding our 3BETS?
1. Nitty openers-as opposed to players who want 3BET more. Create inverse implied probability situations. Also remember that a HUD is an average of all the hands that have been opened. So a 30VPIP turns out to be a 10% UTG aperture range. Do not confuse them.
When is it better to just call?
1. Pushing Hands: Benefit from knocking out players from the pot. Most of its value is the combo projects that are not crazy.
2. Pull Hands – Value comes with attracting more players to the pot. More wacky and polarized. You want to dominate the draws and stack ranks. Ask yourself if your hand plays better in HU or in multiple ways. Also consider paying when there are fish in the blinds or the size of the piles is uncomfortable. Don’t always consider immediate equity. Think about how much equity you will generate after the flop. All about dominating your opponents after the flop.
Patrik Antonius Wannabe-Player who is very aggressive before and after the flop. Players generally open at 40% and BET 4 on the max. You should BET 3 less than the pot against them. Maintains positional advantage. Remember that the lower the SPR, the lower the IP advantage. The higher the SPR, the greater the IP advantage.
If 4BETS, then there will be implicit discounts and a cheaper price. Cheaper to get batteries. 3Smaller BETS is also good against opponent ranks heavily weighted towards AAxx in 4BET pots.
Which hands do we make 3APUESTA smaller than the pot? Flexible multi-component hands. They have a lot of medium strength and weak draw combos on the flop, which is perfect when SPR is 7. CBETTING is more powerful against C / Ring range than when it is 4. Also many hands you can check and make your equity with 2 streets . to play. Don’t BET small with big pairs against maniacs. You don’t want a big dry pair with an SPR of 7. You just want to try to get stacks with a big dry pair.
3 BETS OOP? It can also be profitable. It allows you to accumulate stacks quickly after the flop.
1. Reduce SPR. This reduces your mistakes rather than magnifying them.
The same principles apply when playing OOP as opponents and equity distribution.
The setting: You should play significantly tighter than IP just like Hold em, but even more so. Remember that players do not fold as much to 3BETS and this is even more true when they are IP. When you OOP you will be 3BETTING a higher percentage of pots. The main 3BET OOP hands are single and double hands with high-value cards. Most of the hands belong to the premium and playability groups. They are ahead of the opponents’ opening ranges and get equity on many different boards. It can represent a wide range of hands and ahead of the opponents felt range after the flop.
Ragged KKxx gameplay is very similar to dry AAxx on certain boards. Always remember to consider your hands on how they will create profitable post-flop scenarios, not your immediate capital.
You want to 3BET on the pot of these hands and commit 40% of your stack to be able to send on any flop. You should also consider the opponent’s tendencies when thinking of calling or raising AAxx dry.
Call 3BETS Important Considerations:
1. Opponent Tendencies – Make Them Try It
2. Stack sizes-IP can call more 3BETS deeper. When the piles get shallow, it is more important to consider the OPP pile ranges.
3. IP / OOP? It should be a much tighter OOP basis – people call OOP based on their immediate odds. Think of the profits after failure. C / F’ing is an easy way to bleed money.
Hands to avoid calling OOP
1. Paired Hands: You want soft equity and these hands are not very soft on the flop.
2. Axxx moderately connected. Most 3BETS ranges are heavily weighted against AAxx
3. Low single-suit and rainbow hands. You don’t play well in 3BET pots because they dominate the draws on the flop.
