RAMPAGE Poker In a $14,000 POT!

Poker Strategy Info And Source:

Rampage poker finds himself with one of the most beautiful flops when you have suited connectors. An open ended straight draw as well as a flush draw! It always feels like you can never miss with so many outs, right?

In this video I talk about how you should be analyzing turn cards after you have taken an aggressive action and whether that card is better for yours or your opponent’s range.

When an opponent bets into multiple players they should generally have a very tight and strong range. So if you find them betting on a board that is extremely wet, you should proceed with more caution!

When taking a shot at a higher stakes game it is important to realize that the players will be stronger and therefore be better at post-flop play. This should incentivize you to be more aggressive preflop to try and win more pots uncontested.

RAMPAGE Poker In a $14,000 POT!

10 thoughts on “RAMPAGE Poker In a $14,000 POT!

  1. What would YOU do with 9♣ 8♣ on the river?

    Your Stack (BB): $9,100

    Their Stack (CO): $4,100

    Pot: $5,900

    Board: J♥ T♣ 6♣ T♦ 3♦

    A) Check

    B) Bet $1,500

    C) Bet $4,100 (opponent all-in)

  2. Give up plus rampage thinks Villian will call OPs but fold Jx he’s dreaming here bad but it’s simply a XF

  3. Just horrible semi bluffs and ultimately a bad bluff candidate on the river.

    For starters, that flop hits the button’s range the hardest given the preflop action. Overpairs are likely going to be willing to bet/raise to get it in right on the flop when it’s that draw heavy, and reverse implied odds are definitely a factor given the preflop action. Draws that have Ethan almost dead on the flop are definitely in the LJ (preflop opener’s) and button’s ranges. The flop doesn’t hit the SB caller’s range as hard. With this said, check raising with such a polarized size in that spot, even with a good combo draw is a bad idea unless you are at a table where your opponents are very tight/weak.

    To get called by the LJ means at least a pair of Js, if not an overpair. Trips and 2 pair combos for the LJ are likely going to entice them put in the 3 bet for the rest of their effective stack to target big draws, so the fact that the LJ cbet then flatted the check raise means the LJ’s range is capped at strong draws, overpairs, or maybe even some non-believing Jx combos, depending on the player. With this said and the fact that the LJ was willing to call a check raise that big right on the flop, how likely is it that any bluffs are getting the LJ’s range to fold before the river or even on the river if a clean looking runout comes for the best hand on the flop? This made Ethan’s decision to not slow down on the brick turn not very wise.

    The 10 was an interesting turn card nonetheless, but a bad one for Ethan’s ability to be able to execute a bluff if his draw missed. It made pocket 10s that much less likely for his range. 10x combos for second pair on the flop aren’t taking such a polarized line on the flop, so the LJ shouldn’t have been that worried about Ethan showing up with trip 10s in that spot. At this point, to make another big bet on the turn, Ethan was basically repping J/10, pocket 6s or pocket Js (the LJ blocked J/10 and pocket Js) or a big draw and nothing else given his line to that point.

    With this said, for the LJ to call again on the turn, Ethan had to know the only hand he had a chance to bluff the river to take the pot was a big draw that had him dead (2 big connecting clubs) if another brick came. Any other combos the LJ was calling with to that point weren’t folding to a clean looking river given the LJs range and SPR.

    Any skilled player would have recognized they really stepped in it in this spot and just gave up on the river if they missed. And if they did hit their draw on the river, it would have to be just a check/call line OOP, as like I mentioned, reverse implied odds were definitely a possibility for Ethan to be up against the way this hand played out.

  4. Why do you say he may be way behind after that flop? If his opponent has an over pair he is pretty far ahead with an open ended straight draw and flush draw even if his opponent has a set. Pretty much the only way he is behind is a bigger flush draw and he blocks that. I like the raise here when you are pretty sure you are ahead to get more money into the pot.

  5. Now that most of us have a decent understanding of GTO, it's time to take it to the next level. I have constructed a flawless system, which, in four simple steps, will make you a winning player in all tournament and cashgames.
    1. THE PREFLOP FOLD: If you hold a very strong hand but there are 3 players in the pot, instead of trying to squeeze them out, fold your KK or AA to nulify the chance of getting a bad beat.
    2. ALL IN VALUE: In early stages of a tournament, go all in EVERY time the action gets folded to you. Even with 200BBS. If you
    get called, you can now determine exactly what the value of your hand is.
    3. THE GREAT ODDS: This is very advanced play. You 3bet the first villain who raises you and leave 1 chip in the bank. So when you get called and you completely miss the flop, thinking you're drawing dead. You can still fold and be in the tournament. BUT, and here it gets interesting. Even with one overcard, or a tiny draw to whatever, if someone puts you ALL IN, you have amazing odds when you only need to call 1 chip to win a 20k pot. Not a system on the planet can give you those odds.
    4: The (2) PAIR DRAW: Most guys think that when you completely miss the flop and don't even have a flushdraw, straightdraw or even an overcard. That you automatically have to give up the hand. This is false. You still have a two pair draw, or even a draw to trips if you get lucky. So bet big on flops you completely missed, knowing you not only have fold equity, but also a pair draw.

    PART 2 of my course will be arriving soon. SPOILER ALERT: It will be called: We're in the chiplead, it's all downhill from here.

  6. What kind of strategy is this? “The worse my hand gets, the more $ I put in pot.” 🤦‍♂️ I disagree with “run big bluffs constantly, to eventually get paid with made hands”. I’m a nit and, I still get calling stations to double me up regularly.

  7. I think you have to give up on the river. LJ flatted the check-raise on the flop, which indicates a strong J-x hand, an Ace or King high flush draw or open ended straight draw may flat flop and turn bets. Their range is capped since they just flatted flop, so QQ+ is out. This really depends on the player, do they call down with all draws and then give up on the river when they miss, or can they just not fold a pair like a random jack? I don't think they are calling a check-raise on the flop with a 10, so the only thing you can try to represent with a shove on the river is J/10, or JJ's, and if LJ has a Jack, much less likely they will believe BB has one as well.
