Katipo jumps back into the action after taking a break from poker with this first installment in a series of hyper turbo reviews. In these games played on Black Chip Poker, Katipo takes on SDoGOod, a reg that Katipo had played against in the past and who proves to be a very challenging opponent through-out these reviews. This first video sees them start at $360, but later games in this series are played at several levels, including up to $1200.

wow. the sound of the client

wow. the sound of the client when cards are dealt is really super annoying. like a 70´s slot machine.

 

apart from that: thanks for the upload. was a good watch and your thoughts are well explained. looking forward to more.

More videos are coming.

More videos are coming. Unfortunately, some of them have already been recorded and will still have the slot machine sound. Sorry about that! I'll make sure to disable it next time.

Hey i have watched all your

Hey i have watched all your video series and thought they were very high quality videos, i have some questions throughout all the parts about certain spots and hands. Would love to here your thoughts (or any other peoples) and i am more than willing to discuss.

1) (3.07) Is Q3o a fold 15BB deep rather than a call there? If Villian is an aggressive player postflop would calling have greater Ev than calling? With the the 3 low card, there are so many boards where it can be difficult to play Q high O.O.P to aggression, possibly more  If it was Q3s would a 3b all in be a possibility? 

2)  (11.17) You talk about possibly limping K6o there 23BB or so although you do not. It does seem deep is a play I am interested in limp deeper with this sorts of hands but not sure the opponents to do it to in my game. Would you limp hands such has K5o-K8o Q5o-Q8o deep against villians with a high Iso and then calling iso's and playing in position? Would it also be nice to have hands similar which are suited K5s-K8s Q5s -Q8s in a limping range say 15-22BB deep or so?

Thanks for the kind

Thanks for the kind comments.

1. Q3o and similar can go ether way based on the following factos.

- the minraise frequency and range of your opponent

^^^some people minraise only 30% at that stack depth and it's almost all their value hands  - you definitely want to fold vs these guys

^^^others can keep the same frequency but polarize heavily - this becomes closer because of how much air their range has despite the low frequency

^^^^you can get some hints that you're facing this kind of player if you see a lot of limp-trapping

- the postflop aggression you're facing

^^^of course, the more he barrels, the harder it is to play hands which don't connect strongly very often

- if it was Q3s, it can be an easy shove vs many villains but it again depends on how much they mr, their calling range and what that range consists of

 

2. Limping K6o itself is not a great play unless you back it up with other hands which let you defend vs raises. Since you either hit hard (but still not nutted) or barely at all, it's not an ideal hand to have when facing aggression. You'd prefer more reliable equity which lets you call multiple barrels and then perhaps bluff rivers when your opponent gives up (ex: JT). Moreover, Kx hands comprise a large percentage of a value iso range K9-AK. It's not a frequent situation that you run into a better K but it is still an argument against limping it.  

Thus, I'd like limping K6o primarily if I'm using a high limping strategy (with plenty of strong hands to indirectly protect K6o from isos) and I consider my opponent to 3b too much for K6o to be a better minraise. Once your limping range is expanded but still has strong hands, calling an iso with K6o is more attractive because your opponent has to respect that you can have plenty of value on all board textures and they can't just be aggro without getting punished. This lets you realize your equity with the hand better.

In any case the higher the iso, the more you can call mediocre hands like K5o. As always, suited hands play better postflop. You can consider minraising your offsuit K5o and limping the suited one if you feel they're trying to overly attack your limps.

Thanks for your detailed

Thanks for your detailed replies, much appreciated.

Knowing if they are polarized or Min-Raising value hands is important and so if they are limp trapping they have more of a polarized Min Raising range.

Yes i see that the 6 kicker can get you into trouble when facing aggression.

Against aggressive iso's i wondered your thoughts on limp 3 bet ranges vs aggro iso opponents? (ones that iso to say x3 the BB) a lot deep as i feel that so many people (including myself) limp call preflop (from a 15's Hyper HU player pool) so much and dont limp 3bet deep much although it must be GTO to have limp 3b ranges?. Is this because to use of your position is key postflop so keeping to pot smaller is good and it also seems hard to balance ranges for 3b shoving. low Ax low Kx 22 - 33.
