Adjusting to the amount of aggression can be difficult since heads-up battles require you to bet and raise with many hands. This book covers heads-up tournaments, cash matches, the final two of a multi-table tournament, and blind-vs-blind play at fuller tables. With more heads-up matches available, becoming proficient in them is highly profitable. This text is the first strategy book devoted to no-limit heads-up play. You will learn to: 1.
Master expected value, equity, and heads-up fundamentals 2. Play and exploit the most common playing styles 3. Manipulate the pot size based on your hand and your opponent 4. Attack button limps, bluff multiple streets, and play aggressively 5. Distinguish between optimal tournament and cash strategies 6.
Exploit your opponents through metagame mastery 7. Maximize your profits through game theory and business concepts. This first section discusses an advanced play that works well against thinking, aggressive opponents, particularly those who raise liberally from the button preflop.
It requires having already played tightly from the big blind, which if you follow the advice given so far you will be doing. But it has potential. In particular, good candidates include T9o, T8s, 54s, or a small pair. You have been folding to most button raises, and you now make a small reraise. Against such a small reraise, it is unlikely your opponent will fold preflop. If he plays back before the flop, you fold. When he calls, you lead out on any flop for a one-half to two-thirds pot bet.
If you miss the flop and he calls or raises, you are done with the hand unless you improve to a strong holding on the turn. The reasoning behind this play is that an intelligent player will tend to think that someone who has been tight from the big blind and unexpectedly makes a small reraise may be doing so because he wants action with a strong hand. Unless your opponent connects with the flop in some way, he will usually concede the hand. This play is a way to be the one showing the greatest strength preflop, and therefore the natural one to take it down after the flop, without committing a lot of chips.
Plus, you can always win a big pot when you flop a strong hand and your opponent connects as well. Analysis: Unless your opponent has a king, it will be difficult for him to stay in this hand. You have shown significant strength, and, due to your earlier tightness, there is no reason for him to believe you are bluffing. When your opponent does play back, you need to be careful.
For instance, if the flop had been J 8 2 , and he raised your post-flop leadout bet, then more often than not, you will be facing at least top pair or perhaps second pair with a higher kicker.
You have shown significant strength on two betting rounds, yet your tight-aggressive opponent still wants to build a big pot. So it is likely he has the best hand. You might call if the raise was small and the stacks deep enough that the implied odds to draw to your five-outer the three tens and two eights were there, but generally, when an opponent plays back at you in this situation, give him credit for a real hand and fold.
And finally, remember that the small three-bet is an advanced play to be used sparingly against players who are both aggressive and perceptive. But against a different type of opponent, this play can and should become a money loser. Another variation on three-betting is the three-overbet.
Sometimes when you are the big blind and the button raises, you should make a larger-than-normal reraise to simplify further decision-making. There are several conditions that make this play particularly beneficial: You have a robust yet non-premium hand. You do not feel that you can significantly outplay your opponent with conventional strategy.
Let us look at an example where all these criteria are optimal, and then change the conditions to see how they affect our willingness to make a three overbet.
Recensione Libri di Poker: 'Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em' di Collin Moshman
Quello che la maggior parte dei giocatori desiderano. Come lo stesso Moshman suggerisce, i giocatori esperti possono tranquillamente passare oltre alla discussione introduttiva di concetti come pot odds, expected value, effective stack sizes, e altre idee di base es. La Parte Due "Playing Styles and Exploiting Styles" descrive poi i differenti stili di gioco e i relativi pro e contro di ciascuno. Moshman delinea le caratteristiche di base dei quattro principali stili di gioco che uno tende ad incontrare ai tavoli loose-aggressive, tight-aggressive, loose-passive, loose-aggressive , spiegando in che modo sono giocati e come meglio sfruttarli o contrastarli. Altri utili concetti emergono qui nel contesto di pot control, incluso il "processo di eliminazione" quando si decide tra le opzioni disponibili e "price-setting the river" es. Entrambi i capitoli forniscono alcuni interessanti esempi che mostrano come un dilettante potrebbe giocare la stessa mano molto diversamente da un professionista.
