World-Class Player Overseeing The Turn
I think we can all agree that there is nothing sexy in poker than big overbet. (If there is, tell me what’s in the comments below.) From the early days of high betting online poker, Overbet was first popularized by online legends such as Tom Dwan and “Jungleman”. The strategy behind overbetting was quite rough again when it first began to gain popularity. But over time, gifted players have helped improve overbetting into a more appropriate knowledge.
Now in the era of modern breakers, the increase is taking the strategy behind optimal overbetting to a higher level with coach Daniel “Dougiedan678” McAulay “Play C-bet: modeling”. This module becomes exceptional details on all you need to know about how to master overbetting turn, but in this preview I want to give you some basic concepts taken from the course. In the following section, I will discuss 3 basic questions about overbetting on turning:
- Why are we overbet?
- When do we overbet?
- How much do we overbet?
Remember, this article just scratches the surface. If you seriously master the turn, see the full 3-hour learning module in the upswing lab. Let’s get started!
Why do we overbet in turn?
We have specified that overbetting is really cool, so let’s go why you might want overbet in certain situations. Here are the main advantages for overbetting in turn:
- We got more value with our strong hands.
- We can bully with the proportion of our higher range (see: minimum defense frequency).
- We force our opponents to fold more, and this means they are aware of less equity.
- Most of our opponents will be reluctant to increase vs overbet (which is true to their part). This allows us to manifest more equity by always seeing rivers while also in position. It also allows us to control the size of the pot entering the river.
When to overbet in turn
Some reasons why for overbet is quite intuitive. But many players struggle to know when to overbet and how much to overbet. There are three main scenarios where overbetting accordingly:
- When you have a nut advantage (hands stronger than our opponents).
- When the range of our opponents is closed (in other words, he does not have / some very strong hands).
- When the turning card (or river) is a brick.
Scenario 1 example:
We are on a button facing the big blind in one pot lifted. FLOP comes k 6 and C-bets we are called. It turns 2. In this case, both players can have hands like A6, K6, 66, and A2. However, because the big blinds are not 3-bets of US preflops, we know he cannot have the best hand (AA, AK, and KK). Meanwhile, we can have all these hands within our reach, along with 3 combinations of 22 for the reversed set. It all provides significant bean benefits over our opponents and makes a great overbet place.
Scenario 2 Example:
Hands from scenario 1 can also be used to describe scenarios 2, but let’s describe a little further. Often clips, players will examine with the top range, which can sometimes make them exposed to a closed range in several rounds. Let’s consider k 6 2, again. We already know that we have bean advantages. But above that, we can assume that some of the strongest hands in the range of our opponents (like 66) will often be examined in failure. Suppose we know our opponents will examine 66 and most of the hands of two partners are failed. If that’s the problem, the turn ranging after calling check-on is mostly closed on the odd number of combos that he might have.
Given this, we can go to the city with a choice of overbet round which is very aggressive with our value and snapping. This allows us to apply maximum pressure to our opponents.
Scenario 3 Example: When it comes to excessive brick rotation, let’s mix and change boards up to 7 4 2 with Q fall in turn. The concept of the turn of the brick is most often valid for situations like this, where the flop is all low cards and turns peeling a random high card that does not produce a lot of two couples for our opponents. Because our opponents are likely to fold your hands like Q2O, Q4O, and Q7o Preflop, Q is a brick for its reach. Indeed, he can have several combo that match Q 4, but they make a very small part of his reach. You can also see this place from the perspective that Q Most increase our reach. This is because we have a large number of QX overcard hands that bets fail (like QJ / QT), besides a number of other values that are not gradually in their turn (like KK or 22). Whatever way you choose to see it, this is another great overbet place.
How much for overbet
This is unusual among the great players to see overbet starting from anywhere between 125% -300% pot. Sometimes even more. Given that there are so many size options, questions about “How much should be exaggerated?” Most of why this new overbetting module in the UPSWING lab is very valuable. Getting to all the feel of Overbet Buyan is outside the scope of this article, but here are some basic tips to choose how much to overbet:
- The greater our bean advantage, the greater we can overbet
- On the board where we are the only players who can have nuts, we can theoretically bet all-in regardless of the depth of the stack (even if 10 times the pot).
- Overbet size optimal turn will mostly go down to the board texture.
- High-board, broadway boards, decent boards, paired boards, and monotonous boards have the potential to have very different optimal sizes.
- This fast tips must make you print money with your overbet.
Until the next time, good luck at the table!
