Win a Sunday Major, Part 3

In part three of our sunday major series we continue to look at ChipMeUp user ayhan_fb1907 and his great result in the Sunday Comboayhan_fb1907 uses a balanced and patient approach to his game to maximise his chip increases at each opportunity. Maintaining aggression, he allows his opponents to make some big mistakes!

In part 2 he made it into the money, and now we see him get close to the final table, running up a big stack along the way! 



Please post your comments, questions and feedback!

If you have a hand or interesting tournament you would like reviewed, please let us know and hopefully we can feature it Strategy and Training!

cold calls from solid players pre let all bells ring…
dont think people with this stats/stack/position will fold preflop. so missing doubleup to often when he misses flop…. andyour 3bets loose foldequity if premium not in

A10:usually for me its standart with this stack to put it allin….
once i railed you at final2table at ftopsevent and you played 3bet/fold with round about 18bb if i remember right.
im curios where the cut is for a modern highstakesreg and if it is diffrent depending on opponents/hands/stage of tourney.

Sorry u mean calling the AA hand early with 16bb pre in MP or in general?

Min 9:39 JQ : I like to C/R this kind of flops with trips vs other regulars because my hand normally looks not strong. Against some LAGs, bad player and TAGs i like to call it down. Afterwards i prefer the check on the turn more then the smallish bet with this stacksizes.

Mi 13:58 KT : The better play on the turn would be a raise to apr. 25k because so many draws can pay us of and we are both pretty deep. The river i should bet also a bit bigger as rkruok said

Min 31:12 AQ : I should 3 bet bigger here against 2 opponents. Something btw 25 to 26 k is better i think,or what size do guys prefer there?

Min 40:09 77 : I don`t like to bet the flop after he`s checking on the flop. This looks to suspicious for me too and if i decide to bet on the flop, then i have to double barrel to get better PP`s (88,99&TT) to fold on the turn. What also speaks against a bet on the flop is that we have a protected pot. It makes normally not much sense to attack a unprotected pot on such boards with that action. I`m not 100 % sure about this because it`s pretty deep (71bb).Thats why i would like to hear the opinion of the other members to this spot.

Min 42:24 AT : 3 bet call is the best play

Thank you rkruok for producing this video for the community and the excellent comentation. Looking forward for the next part

Vs people who can fold to a 3 bet against a small stack, it can be very good to have sometimes a 3 bet folding range with 18-20 bb. U only have to be very carefull with this People are taking usually 3 bets from this stacksizes to serious/strong. AS allways i`m not 100% sure but i see many good regs doing this and recommend it in the other forums and videos.

this AA
and many AA when you are not deep enough to call with other hands

I do this very seldom with under 20bb against allmost any player. If villian is a nit and opr, i agree that a 3 bet is better or a shove. Nevertheless we need to have also a calling range with 20bb-25bb in pos and this calling range doesn’t only excists from monsters. I call there also some broadway combos and suited connectors to hold my range not to caped vs regs/thinking player. If I 3 bet with this stakesizes i’ll lose to often value vs wide opening ranges. Villian will fold to often and i want to give him the opprtunity to make mistakes postflop. Postflop it’s easier to make mistakes then preflop. I dont mind when i bust with 20-25bb with AA because the opr or somebody flops a better hand. I need to make some chips and i think i can win more chips when i get opponents postflop.

Schaeng, so u have no calling range anymore with 20-25bb in pos vs a ep opr?

schaeng schaeng (4 years ago - 10 Jan 2015 12:53 UTC)

u had 16 ;)
can imagine situations i call with 20-25bb,but not a weak hand with this many players coming.
