How To Print Money In Clasps In Pairs As A Preflop Raiser
Playing well on paired boards is very important to maximize your victory level. To help with this, the ‘MyNameIskarl’ Pro Fried Cash game ‘Meulders launched a learning module in the UPSWing Lab course, focusing on how to play pimps in pairs. In this article, you will learn some of the basic principles of this new lesson. I will also discuss some history centered on playing in pairs in the position as Raiser Preflop.
Note: If you want to take a big step towards pinch mastery in pairs (as well as how to continue turn and river), join upswing the lab now and see the fried flip module. But for now, let’s start with some basic principles for betting in pairs.
This article is marked as sophisticated. If you prefer reading easier, see our introductory article here or our intermediate article here.
Principle of flop paired.
The following section touches some quite advanced concepts. If you feel overwhelmed with what you read, it’s really fine. Try the best to understand the general points that I made and focus on thick text.
Distribution of equity based on position and type of board
Part of what makes a paired pin interesting is that the distribution of equity for each player varies based on certain cards paired:
In the most paired pinpins, the position (IP) preflop raiser (PFR) will have a range and advantage of nuts compared to players from position (OOP).
For example, at K J Flop IP PFR will have an equity advantage / range in addition to having a stronger hand (see: Bean advantage) because it is more likely to have a full trip / home compared to OOP. However, in low pairs (88x and lower) players OOP players will often have bean advantages. The IP player maintains the superiority of the overall equity / reach, but he no longer ruled the highest when it comes to the strongest hand. For example, at 5 4 4 flop, IP PFR will maintain the range of advantages, but OOP’s bean advantages because it is now more likely to have a trip or better.
How often do you bet and your bet size must be based on your bean range and superiority Now we have discussed the concept of “ranges” and “bean advantages” referring to, let’s talk about why they are important: The important reason for studying equity distribution in general is that it will determine the size and frequency that you must terminate.
Betting frequency – when will bet
The following rules apply to betting in any situation in Poker:
- If you have a range of range, you usually bet.
- If you don’t have a range of advantages, you usually have to check it out.
When it comes to pairpins, IP PFR will always have a range of range and have to bet at high frequencies. There are several pests that will need more checks than usual by IP PFR, and I encourage you to check the fried laboratory module to find out more about this complicated board. However, it was almost never a big mistake to bet on a flop in pairs as IP PPR. The main question then becomes: How many size do you bet?
The right bet size
A good player tends to limit their actions to 2 specific betting sizes in any situation. This is largely because it has more than 2 betting sizes making it too difficult to maintain a balanced range. Many good players even limit themselves to 1 bet size to simplify their strategy. Unless you have studied a particular board / situation thoroughly, I suggest choosing 1 size in the given place. The decision to use small or large bets is largely determined by which players have a range of excellence in relation to the superiority of the bean. You will see what I mean by this from the hands sample in the next section, but the important thing to remember here is this:
You usually have to save your big bet when you have bean advantages and use smaller bets when not. On the board where it is unclear which player has a bean advantage, it is usually safer to put most of your hands into a smaller betting category to avoid building large pots when you are not sure where you stand. Also remember that if you choose to use a larger bet size, you must lower the frequency with what you put. Large bets usually have to be done at lower frequencies and small bets are good for betting on higher frequencies. Finally, it is not mandatory to always bet on a pairboard as a PFR. This is especially true when you run out of position (OOP). Betting is only true when the expected value (EV) bets higher than EV from the examination – this applies to both values and snapping.
Now after we discuss some of the core principles, let’s look at some hands from the fried module and discuss how these principles apply to the fried decision-making process.
$ 5 / $ 10 without limits hold’em
The fried button is open to $ 23.50 with K 6. Big blind call.
Flop ($ 51.20): 9 4 4
Big blind check. Fried betting $ 16.50. Big blind call
Turn ($ 83.40): 9 4 4 3
Big blind check. Fried betting $ 53.06. Great blind fold.
Our first flop contains a low pair, which means OOP player (Big Blind) will have a nut advantage. IP PFR, however, still has the excellence of the overall range and has to bet this failure with high frequency.
Here are some additional analysis with fried in this failure:
While this flop is not a 100% C-bet, I will bet on this board far more often than if the board is all low cards and more connected like 4 4 5. My opponent will have more 4S in its range than I am here, but not much.
We can summarize this failure by saying: fried has the overall range of range, but at a little shortcoming. Remember this, small bet with a higher betting frequency is the best strategy. Fry bet correctly ⅓ pot and we go to the turn.
As stated in the intro, the fry runs deep with a turn and strategy of the river after a pin pin in the full module, and I encourage everyone to check it out. That said, this is a brief analysis of this round:
Turn 3 does not do much to help players and fries must decide whether to fire the second barrel or check it back.
Fry choose to look for bets, explain that if you only map your draw in turn you won’t have enough cliffs within your reach to balance your value betting. The big blind range is still very broad here and double barrels can fold a number of high card hands and other buoys.
While K 6 It does have a showdown value, fries will be more likely to re-check the hands of stronger high cards such as A-High and KQ in the hope of reaching the fight. After the solver analysis later, Fried showed us that K6S had to bet at 38% of the time. However, K 6 and K 6 make the most of the range of bets when they block 4x hands like 6 4 and 6 4.
$ 2 / $ 5 without limits hold’em
Fry open Cutoff to $ 11.55 with Q 8. Big blind call.
Flop ($ 25.60): J J 2
Big blind check. $ 8 fried bets. Big blind calls
Turn ($ 41.60): J J 2 J
Big blind check. Fried betting $ 28.05. Large blind fold
FLOP analysis. This high card pair gives IP PFR peanut advantages and overall range gains. Fry explains that this is a board he will bet basically 100% of the time. He can divide the reach into two bets, but in this case he chose to make a small bet ⅓.
Turn analysis The turn doesn’t change much in terms of the range of reach for both players. Fried shows that the distribution between each player has a front thigh even in this case. Given that fries still have the advantage of the overall range, with all the high lonely couples still within reach, he chose to double the barrel ⅔ pot. Solver analysis later suggests Q8 must bet on this round around 50% of the time. However, if you look under you will see q 8 specifically it must be checked almost 100% of the time, while all other Q8 will do most bets. Can you guess why this?
Have you known the reason Q 8? Simply put, if the fried turn is turned out with Q 8 and called he really draws off against a full home or a front thigh. Therefore, breakers suggest checking the flush draw near almost 100% of the time. This strategy maintains all OOP range Q 8 has equity that is still in hand, while at the same time it continues to be fried from excessive turn. The back of this flush-draw will also function as a big cliff catcher when they completely on the river. Fry then continue to explain that by hand like Q 8 It’s better just to bet the turn and try to force the folds from the hands of the oop high card now. I was pretty amazed when fried first pointed this all because it was only one of the nuanced places that nuanced 99% of players would never think about it. Let’s check our last hand:
$ 2 / $ 5 without limits hold’em
Fry the open button to $ 11.55 with Q T. Big blind call.
Flop ($ 25.60): 9 9 6
Big blind check. $ 8 fried bets. Big blind calls.
Turn ($ 41.60): 9 9 6 8
Big blind check. Fried betting $ 25.15. Big blind call.
River ($ 91.90): 9 9 6 8 9
Big blind check. Fried check.
Big Blind won with 4
FLOP analysis. A pair of nine on a failure once again good for the PFR IP player in terms of the superiority of the bean. If the Council is not fried draw-heavy can bet this failure 100% of the time with all its staff. Q T Of course it is strong enough to bet here, and fry follows once again because it is approximately ⅓ pot.
Turn 8 might help the BB range a little more than fried, but as the default fry explains that he will bet here every time he changes extra equity. Fried bets approximately 61% of pots, BB calls, and we head to the river.
Malang river to fry, and he chose to check. In this situation, fries explain that he will not be able to bet 100% of the draw that is missed or he will end up bulotizing too much. Fry also explains that, in places like this, it’s not ideal to bully with a flush draw that is missed because you block the type of hand you want your opponents. It should be without saying that a double buoy of criminals with 4 is too wide here, but it’s poker. Loose opponents like this will always be the type of player you want at your desk.
This wraps our preview in a new paired flop module in the UPSwing Lab. Hopefully, this article gives you a few early points of thinking about playing pairpins in pairs, while also making you excited about checking the full flop module for yourself. As usual, if you have questions or feedback, I will gladly respond to you in the comments section.
Good luck at the table!
