Me: Hand? Prop opens button. He's weak/tight but not by prop standards. I defend K8hh. J75 one heart I c/r. Reasonable?
BP: Check call is better from a game theory perspective I think....
Me: What does c/c accomplish? Am I really hoping to get to showdown UI some % of the time?
Me: What if I had Q8hh? That I'd c/r confidently. A8hh I'd c/c for sure.
BP: Check call for value. could be leading + draw. Q8 w bdf seems like solid cr candidate. Bryce in hu matches liked to bias towards call call folding k hi combos
BP: On certain board textures....
Me: I mean that seems to be giving opponent no credit for triple barreling...but Bryce is obv correct so...
I feel like c/c then c/c the turn is just tough if I don't fine SOME help. Like am I c/c a black deuce?
Now at this point I kinda got involved in the playing of other poker hands and put my phone away to stop texting with the Big Potato. And he pontificated mightily in my absence.
BP: I mean cr isn't bad. I'm sure its fine. But its probably a decent calling candidate. But since this prop is probably playing fit, raising 'too much' is prob
BP: An asset rather than liability.
BP: I dunno I play poker there. Against some prop you prob aren't doing well on deuce turns. But if he always double barrels then maybe you can do something..
BP: I dunno all you medium stakes 2+2 are bluff catch phobic and you love to instead raise that portion of your range so I knee jerk want to disagree w you but...
BP: I'm liking the raise now...but calling is still fine. Like everything depends on how opponent nd how you craft your ranges generally..
BP: I don't know how many barrels I'd fire if he calls depending on the t and r. I'd probably just look into his soul and make the exact correct decision bc props are
BP: So ground down that they are very autopiloty and telly.
Me: LOL thanks I appreciate it. How's life?
BP: Pretty decent. Workout like a beast. Dating tons. Working on O8 and other games. Running so so.
BP: Can't complain. How about you? Read your blog. Congrats on the anniversary. almost all of us don't take the straight path to success. You should be proud imo
Me: It'd be pretty boring to just have won the whole way to 1/2 I suppose. Thanks. You have that 6-pack yet.
The Potato is engaged in a prop bet, the details of which are roughly his developing a 6-pack against a female of extremely limited athletic ability completing a marathon. Don't hold your breath on this one folks.
BP: No not close really but I look way better naked than I ever have. So I'm happy.
Me: Nice hand
Me: BTW I think imaturn this text conversation into a blog post if you don't mind.
BP: Post away
