Cafrino 3-Betting Light

What is 3-betting and 3-betting light?

What is 3-betting and 3-betting light?

Given how aggressive the play is in online poker, the 3-betting light is becoming one of the most popular decisions out there. A three-bet is a re-raise that a player makes before the flop, and players either do it for value, or they do a “light” version. Let’s take a look at each of these bets and how they can help you.

Understanding 3-betting and 3-betting light

The “value” three-bet means that you think your hand is the strongest currently on the table, and you want to add to the pot while you still have the upper hand. Whether or not you should put down the three-bet has to do with a number of factors. How’s the rest of the poker table looking in terms of the dynamics of your rivals? What tendencies does your opponent show?  No matter if you’re playing a million dollar tournament or a friendly hand of free poker, you want win and hit a hand that will beat your opponent’s range. Are you playing a typical tight-aggressive player? Think about a fairly tight range then, maybe AA-Q-Q and A-K. If you’re facing a loose-aggressive player or someone who calls re-raises light? Think about a wider range. This could go A-A-99 or A-K-A-Q. If you are too tight with your three-betting range, you’re going to become predictable. Your opponents will realize that a three-bet means that you have a strong hand, and they won’t play along with you.

The “3-betting light” three-bet happens when you re-raise a pre-flop raise, even though you probably don’t have the best hand on the table, but you do see some value in the hand. When you’re doing this, it’s kind of like a bluff, without being a full bluff. You want to take the pot right away, and you’re hoping that your opponent will fold to that re-raise. So you’re looking for an opponent who is pretty loose with his initial raises. If you know that they raise light, you can return the favor, because you know that generally they’ll be folding. So you can carry the pot without even having to look at a flop.

Avoid the Patterns, Even More if you’re Playing Online

This means that you need to pay attention to the way you play and behave at the table. If your opponents see you as super tight, people aren’t going to pay you large for your strong hands. They know that you’re tight and when you come out with big guns, there must be a considerable hand in front of you. However, if you start three-betting light, that will alter the image. If you three-bet holding 7-6 and then show down a pair, you will shed that tight image quickly.

Obviously, you’ll want to keep your opponents guessing, though. Keep that range balanced so that your opponents won’t know whether you have A-A or 5-4 when you three-bet. When your opponents don’t know what you’re doing, they’re a lot more likely to make mistakes. They’ll end up calling your strong hands and folding when you didn’t even have a pair.

Put your 3-betting light poker skills on the line. You can practice as much as you need on the free online poker tables at Cafrino and get all the practice you need while winning real cash!

Relative position in poker

Relative position in poker

Understanding Relative Position in Poker and its Importance

Relative position in poker is an important factor in any hand, especially in Hold’em poker. When you go last and have a chance to see what your opponents are doing before you play, this is a huge advantage. However, relative position doesn’t have to do with when you get to go, but where you are at the table in relation to the player who raised pre-flop.

Why is Relative Position So Important in Poker?

When someone bets on the flop, it starts the cycle of actions all over among the players who are still involved in the hand. If you’re on the button, and there are two involved players before you, here’s how it might work:

Player #1: Check

Player #2: Check

You (on the button): Check to close the action.

 

It could also go this way:

Player #1: Bet

Player #2: Fold

You: Call to close the action

 

However, when the betting doesn’t go that way, then the position changes like this:

Player #1: Check

Player #2: Bet (starts the cycle over)

You: Call

Player #1: Call to close the action

 

Even though you’re on the button, the bet by Player #2 means that you don’t get to shut the action down in the hand. This happens occasionally, but it’s not always important because you can still see everyone’s decisions at some point before you make a decision. However, when it comes to continuation bets, there is one additional factor to think about.

Keep this in Mind the Next Time You Play Poker

In just about any hand of Texas Hold’em, there will be a pre-flop raiser. A lot of times you’ll see that same person make a continuation bet on the flop, if they bet first or if the others checked up to them. Because pre-flop raisers often make continuation bets, the rest of the table should expect this and often check to them, giving that player the opportunity to make the first move. So if you act after the pre-flop raiser who has just made the continuation bet, you have a sticky wicket if there are others who will act after you. Those who checked could have anything in their hands, and you’re stuck in the middle. The pre-flop raiser could have a solid hand and has made the continuation bet to push up the pot. The player who checked could have just about anything.

The best spot to be in when this happens is just to the right of the pre-flop raiser. This means that your action will end the betting of that round when the continuation bet comes down. The worst spot you can be in is to the raiser’s immediately left. You have to act first after that bet, and you have people sitting behind you who could have anything at all. Always keep an eye on your relative position, as it could influence what happens to you going into the flop and for the rest of the hand.

NBA Star Russell Westbrook Plays Poker

NBA Star Russell Westbrook Plays Poker Instead of Training

NBA Star Russell Westbrook Plays Poker Instead of Training

NBA star Russell Westbrook is more interested in playing poker than preparing for his opponents according to a recent interview.

The Oklahoma City Thunder point guard recently spoke to the media after his side’s 88-104 loss to the Detroit Pistons.

Despite notching up 33 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists, Russell Westbrook couldn’t help Thunder secure the win and that prompted one journalist to question his pre-game strategy.

Studying Poker Faces Instead of Players

While most NBA players will study footage of their opponents before a game, Russell Westbrook explained that he doesn’t pay much attention during training. In fact, instead of running through tactics with his coach and teammates, Russell Westbrook spends most of his time playing poker.

“I don’t worry about other people. Usually I just sit out and chill, relax, I play poker on my phone, play spades on my phone, listen to music,” Westbrook told reporters.

Now, without knowing what sort of “poker” Russell Westbrook is playing, it’s hard to speculate on whether he’s making money or not. But, it’s worth noting that he probably wasn’t playing for real money.

Unless he’s found a way to circumnavigate the geolocation software used by real money poker sites in New Jersey, Nevada or Delaware, he’s probably perfecting his skills on a play money platform.

Westbrook a Pro Level Player

Although we’ve yet to see Westbrook cash at the WSOP, he does play in some high stakes private games alongside fellow basketball stars and actors, including Tobey Maguire. In fact, Westbrook has also impressed Phil Hellmuth with his skills at the felt. Back in 2015 the Poker Brat told FOX Sports that pro athlete plays like a “professional level poker player.”

Hellmuth’s compliments aside, it’s probably not a good idea for Westbrook to be playing poker on his phone during training sessions. Although Senator John McCain got away with it when he was caught playing poker on his phone during a three-hour Senate committee hearing back in 2013, it’s unlikely Thunder fans would be so forgiving.

Fortunately, his love of poker doesn’t seem to be affecting his performance (he’s averaging 32.0 points per game), but a few slips on the court could easily cause him to regret his recent admission.

Of course, news of a professional basketball player enjoying a few rounds of poker is nothing new. Over the last few years we’ve seen a number of NBA stars anteing up at the WSOP. In 2015 Earl Barron finished 613th out of 7,275 entrants in the Millionaire Maker to take home $3,044.

While LA Clippers forward Paul Pierce told WSOP reporters in 2014 that he plays poker because it make him “smarter.”

Poker Heros

Poker heroes and villains

Poker heroes and villains

When it comes to watching sports on television or in person, it’s all about me. I want to be entertained. I want Poker heroes and villains. I want to have someone to cheer, and someone to boo. I want to laugh. I want to curse. And every now and again I want to see a moment thrilling enough to force me to get up out of my seat.

Poker used to provide that for me. It was the foundation for some of my favorite “reality shows” a decade ago. Not only would I watch the World Series of Poker every year, but I would watch the World Poker Tour on The Travel Channel, “Celebrity Poker Showdown” on Bravo, “High Stakes Poker” on GSN, “Poker Dome Challenge” on FSN, “Poker After Dark” on NBC and I’m sure a handful of other now-defunct shows.

I didn’t necessarily watch because of the poker; I already got my fix of bad beats at the hands of my little brother, who like millions of others briefly wanted to become a professional poker player after watching Chris Moneymaker win the 2003 World Series of Poker. I watched because of the characters I had become connected to while watching all these shows. I developed this bond because they all talked at the table and revealed a human side of themselves I either liked (Antonio Esfandiari), disliked (Phil Hellmuth) or was simply apathetic to (Joe Hachem).

It was similar to my love of pro wrestling. When it comes to the art of the squared circle, I’m not a purist who watches for five-star matches replete with every move from an arm bar to a wheelbarrow. I love the guys who can get on the microphone and rile up the crowd.

Like many others, I started to lose interest in poker as a televised sport before it was hit with its “Black Friday” in 2011. The shows became stale, there was never an influx of new young stars to mix things up and there were only so many times I could hear the same jokes from the same players and commentators.

But I was told the World Series of Poker main event final table was the one time where poker once again felt like it did a decade ago. For three days in the fall it was once again a spectator sport, drawing big crowds for a nationally televised event worth millions of dollars for the nine players at the table.

After attending this year’s “November Nine,” I came away yearning for the characters that made me fall in love with the game as I tried to stay awake until the final hand.

No tickets were needed to watch the final table, but there were times when it felt like a library card might be needed. For the better part of Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, the quietest place in Las Vegas was the Penn & Teller Theater, which has been the home of the “November Nine” since 2008.

The characters, drama and banter (ranging from collegial to contentious), which made poker such a fun sport to watch a decade ago, were completely absent inside an eerily quiet 1,475-seat theater where ushers roamed the aisles like teachers through a classroom to make sure no one was on their cell phones.

The only voice that could be heard from the stage during each hand was that of Jack Effel, the vice president and tournament director for the WSOP who doubles as the play-by-play announcer for the in-house audience. The players had their own cheering sections inside the theater, which made up much of the live crowd that diminished with each day as players were eliminated.

Michael Ruane, 28, had the most boisterous section, with many of his friends dressed as pro wrestlers from the 1990s. Las Vegas resident Qui Nguyen, 39, had a ton of local support as they chanted, “Who win? Qui Nguyen!” each time he collected chips. And those cheering for Kenny Hallaert, 34, mixed in some European soccer chants. But people watching a crowd filled with friends and family is only interesting to a certain point.

I knew I wouldn’t have any real connection to the “November Nine” coming into the final table, but the truth is I had no real connection to them after watching them play for a dozen hours either. It’s inherently hard to connect to people that don’t say anything, or show any emotion.

The oldest and most recognizable player at the final table, and the chip leader when play began, was 50-year old Cliff “JohnnyBax” Josephy, who had previously won two WSOP bracelets. While normally engaging, Josephy was mostly silent for the first two days and even went against the grain by wearing glasses and a hat on the final day, which he never does and previously said he was against.

“There’s more tension at the final table,” Josephy said. “Everyone is tense. They’re playing for money that many people haven’t seen in their lives. It’s understandable that people don’t talk but everyone is friendly. Everyone likes each other. This is a group of guys that really like each other. Everyone is nice.”

Effel echoed those sentiments after the second day of play as the chips for the final three players, Josephy, Gordon Vayo and Nguyen, the eventual winner, were put away.

“When you’re playing for $8 million you’re paying attention to every little thing that you do,” Effel said. “You’re hoping somebody else makes a mistake so you can capitalize on their mistakes. They’re more interested in playing poker than talking.”

It makes sense, of course, but it also makes me nostalgic for a time where the stakes didn’t make players go into their shells. The walkway leading into the Penn & Teller Theater at the Rio in Las Vegas is lined with oversized photographs of past WSOP main event champions. I didn’t recognize the past eight champions, all in their 20s, who looked more like fraternity pledges than poker champions. But I stopped when I got to Jamie Gold’s photo. Ten years ago Gold, who was a talent agent turned television producer, won the 2006 WSOP main event and $12 million, still a record, while outlasting a field of 8,773 entrants — also a record. It was the high water mark of a game that would soon see a significant dip in interest and participation.

Gold was an antagonist and a polarizing figure during his improbable run a decade ago, and one of my favorite players to watch. He talked big while bluffing with nothing, sweet-talked players into reluctantly folding better hands by telling them he would show them his hand and even flashed one of his cards to Michael Binger at the final table, causing Binger to lay down the winning hand. The reasons his antics were frowned upon by purists were the same reasons I enjoyed watching him play.

“You need to have players talking to have heroes and villains,” Gold told me over the phone after the first day of the final table. “Once you take away the character side of it, you’re killing the entertainment value and the reason why advertisers, sponsors and viewers would want to watch. I wasn’t that special, but I had an opportunity to create a character by speaking. Viewers want to watch personalities and have a storyline and an arc play out on television. For the most part, poker on television has become this mundane, mind-numbing endeavor.”

Even worse than the television viewing experience, however, is the live viewing experience. At least viewers at home are able to see the players’ hands while listening to the entertaining trio of Lon McEachern, Norman Chad and Esfandiari in the broadcast booth. But not even the personalities of the announcers can make up for the disconnect between the viewers and the players at the table.

Until that connection can once again be made, my poker needs will continue to be met away from my television — relegated instead to losing money to my little brother.

2016 WSOP Champion - Qui Nguyen

2016 WSOP Champion – Qui Nguyen

2016 WSOP Champion – Qui Nguyen

Of all the eye-catching numbers coming out of Qui Nguyen’s victory as the 2016 WSOP Champion early Wednesday morning — the $8 million first prize, the nine-hour heads-up duel, or even the 6,737-player field he outlasted — perhaps none is more surprising than this:

He is 39.

The former Alaska nail salon owner and failed professional baccarat player is the oldest winner of the $10,000 No Limit Hold ‘Em tournament since 2007, snapping a string of eight straight 20-somethings to grind through the biggest and most prestigious tournament in the annual gambling festival.

“To see somebody like him win, it’s going to give more people hope,” said Ryan Riess, who won the 2013 Main Event at the age of 23. “There’s going to be a lot of guys that may be in their 40s or 50s who may have been discouraged seeing all the younger players win.”

A Vietnam native who lives in Las Vegas, Nguyen eliminated San Francisco poker pro Gordon Vayo on the 364th hand of the final table at around 3:20 a.m. Wednesday to end an 11-hour session that followed an 11-day run in July to winnow the field down to a “November Nine.” Over three straight nights this week, Nguyen played more than 18 hours, including 200 hands from “shuffle up and deal” on Tuesday afternoon to the confetti cannons that celebrated his winning hand.

“It’s absolutely a grueling grind,” said Jason Somerville, who won a $1,000 No Limit Hold ‘Em bracelet in 2011, at 24, and has finished in the money at the Main Event twice. “Remember that you’re not just playing long sessions: You’re on the biggest stage in poker; you’re under the bright lights. That whole thing is a pressure cooker like none other in poker. It’s really unique in life.”

From its origins in barrooms and basements, poker has emerged as a billion-dollar business — the World Series of Poker alone includes 69 events over 51 days in which 107,844 entrants played for $221,211,336 in payouts. As the game grew, it attracted not just older Texans in cowboy hats but young chess, math and computer prodigies who played thousands of hands online in the time it would take traditional gamblers to play one-tenth as much.

That’s enabled younger players to compete with — and even surpass — their more experienced competition. Young player say their age gives them the stamina necessary to outlast fields that now run in the thousands.

Phil Hellmuth was 24 when he won the Main Event for the first time in 1989 (in a field of just 178), but five of the eight winners since 2007 have been younger than that, including 2009 winner Joe Cada, who was about a week shy of his 22nd birthday.

Somerville noted that Nguyen was only 39.

“It’s not like he’s 65, which would really be surprising,” he said.

Nguyen didn’t take the traditional route to the final table. Nor did he make his name playing online like the younger generation of players.

Instead, he used his earnings at the nail salon to finance a baccarat habit that busted him before he turned to poker. With only one WSOP finish in the money and less than $53,000 in career tournament earnings heading into the Main Event, he was one of the least accomplished players at the final table.

But Nguyen used an aggressive style that forced Vayo to fold a better hand dozens of times down the stretch until his stack had dwindled and his choices were limited.

“He kind of played like a 20-something. He was very aggressive, very courageous,” said Somerville, who has more than $6 million in earnings — about one-third online and the rest in live tournaments. “There’s a lot of ways you can be successful in poker. There’s not just one way to do it. But there’s no shortcut to putting the hard work in: studying, practicing training. You really have to put in the hours.”

Nguyen and Vayo did that — all in one night.

More than 10 1/2 hours into the final session, Nguyen held a 5-to-1 chip advantage when he was dealt a king and 10 of clubs. Vayo got a jack and 10 of spades and pushed in his last 53 million chips.

Nguyen quickly called.

The two players stood together at the rail to watch the five shared cards come out.

The flop — the first three community cards — was a king-nine-seven, giving Nguyen a pair and Vayo the possibility of a straight.

Then came an inconsequential two, followed by an equally harmless three.

Nguyen was the winner.

The two players hugged, and Nguyen’s supporters bounced over the rail to celebrate with him.

In addition to one of the biggest prizes in poker, Nguyen receives a $50,000 bracelet made from 427 grams of white and yellow gold and more than 2,000 diamonds and rubies totaling more than 44 carats. The centerpiece opens like a locket to house the hole cards from the winning hand.

“I’m so excited. I don’t know what to say,” Nguyen, wearing his trademark raccoon baseball cap, said on the TV broadcast. “I just tried to remind myself to never give up, to never give up. It was tiring, it was tough, but I wanted to stay aggressive and never give up and thankfully for me it worked out.”

Vayo earned $4,661,228 for finishing second. He’s 27 — the youngest player at the final table.

Cliff Josephy, a 50-year-old former stock broker who was the oldest of the “November Nine,” was eliminated in third place and collected $3.45 million.

Daniel Negreanu, a six-time bracelet winner who is 42 but known as “Kid Poker,” said older winners could become more common because of laws against online poker in the United States.

“Without the ability to play poker online, younger players have a more difficult time amassing the experience necessary to be competitive at the highest levels,” he said. “The barrier for entry for younger players is more significant today as a result. Until that changes, you can expect the average age of the winners to increase along with it.”

But Riess said he didn’t think the presence of two older players among the final three was an indication that the trend toward younger winners is going to reverse any time soon.

“It’s definitely wide open,” Riess said. “There are a lot of great players that are older and a lot that are younger. But as a whole, I think the younger players are still ahead of the game.

“If the over-under was 30,” for next year’s Main Event, he said, “I would bet the under.”

Limping online poker

Is Limping a Good Poker Strategy

Is Limping a Good Poker Strategy?

A lot of poker players have moved away from limping when they play Texas Hold’em. It’s true that putting together intricate bluffs that cross several streets or putting down a three-bet is trendier, and limping has become a lot less popular than it once was. However, just because it isn’t popular doesn’t make it a good strategy.

Using Limping as a Poker Strategy

Some players say that if you never limp preflop, you’ll be a tougher opponent. However, when you take any weapons out of your arsenal, you make yourself easier to fight. Basically, you’re reducing your opponent’s worry down to the opening range.

Why have so many people come out against limping?

Well, the objectors talk about how limping represents a passive sort of play. They assume that limping before the flop means that the action after the flop will also be passive. However, if you use the “aggressive limp,” you can solve some of the other issues that may come up as you move through the streets and end up on top.

What is an “aggressive limp”?

It happens when you limp with the expectation that your opponent will do something in response, especially something aggressive. Here’s an example. Let’s say you have a skilled opponent directly on your left. He keeps there-betting you over and over. Most of the time, people will tighten their opening range to fight off these three-bets, pushing him into some four-bets that will either close him down for the night or make him a lot less aggressive.

Here’s the point, though. When you refuse to limp in this situation, you have to focus on that player to your left, so you can’t isolate any of your other opponents and steal pots before the flop. If you do limp, you can expect isolation from that opponent, but your opponent’s isolating range is going to make that three-bet range look pretty small. So if you can limp a range that is stronger that what that opponent has as his isolating range, you’ll be able to attack when the board is in your favor. So you’re not going to do some of the passive steps that people associate with limping, such as check-calling down to the river, or keeping lines consistent with the amount of risk and. Instead, you’re going to sprinkle some check-raises to your game and really shake the table up. This is one of the most aggressive defenses you can use in any hand, either live or when playing online poker.

Hold’em poker is one of the most sophisticated games in the world, and the deep stacks involved with live poker make it even more complex. Instead of trying to find ways to simplify this game, it is going to be more profitable for you over time to push the envelope and defy expectations. When you go against the grain you surprise your opponents and make an impact that will last for several hands, if not the entire night. So keep focused on evolving your game and keeping your opponents a step behind – and taking aggressive limps is a terrific way to do that.
