I asked you guys to send in some hands from the current Monster Series that you wanted some advice on and I would choose some to analyse. Here are the hands I’ve chosen and the winners will be credited a $33 Monster Series ticket to use during the last week of the series. GL all and hope this helps.

Hand 1 – @Lammie87399562

The hand:

My thoughts:

Very interesting hand, I think pre flop, we should likely be 3betting here, we will be making villain fold hands with good equity vs us, we build a pot for when we make a big hand that wont be too transparent, by 3betting in this position we make the button/cut off fold hands like KQ, AT, even TT/JJ are in a terrible spot. We can expect the opener to play quite passively vs our 3bet too, likely they will just see a flop with AK for example. On the flop, I think that we likely want to start with a slightly smaller raise, we’re multi way so we dont want to put too much money in with our range, we are also aiming to fold out hands with 25% equity, we aren’t trying to bluff here and vs the range of hands that continue we don’t do so well, so we want to risk as little as possible. On the turn, I think betting or checking are both reasonable, I think that we can bet/fold though, because our hand is weak vs the hands that will go all in, I just expect villain to x/c a hand like A5 for example, because we will have a bet/fold range here, I would bet smaller, so that our bet is more efficient.

Hand 2 –  @cortadolover

The hand:

My thoughts:

I think pre flop, vs a guy min raising, 3bet isolating as wide as KTo for value is a good exploit, well done. Otf, I would start with a very small bet of around 20% pot, he will never fold a better hand than K high on Q44 and we don’t really want to bluff much later, the point of our bet on the flop, is to just fold our some hands like 98s that have low equity, so our sizing here can be really small, on the turn we can start using different sizings. On this turn, I think again, we have no fold equity, so would play passively. On the river it seems ambitious to try and make villain fold our better. I would choose a hand like 65s to just go crazy with, blocking some full houses, unblocking K/A highs and unblocking flush draws. KT is a little too strong and you don’t block any of the pocket pair full houses (TT/KK will play more aggressive pre flop).
Hand 4 – @rye_ez

The hand:

My thoughts:

No, sometimes we just die! It’s good you at least consider it though. An actual effective strategy when 250+bbs deep is to open jam AA, people often struggle to fold TT/AK and it’s very profitable! Especially in reentries/rebuys.

Hand 5 – @rasmusFrie

The hand:

My thoughts:

Yes I would shove. If you were in the sb and the button shoved I would fold. You want to be the aggressor always in bubble icm spots.
