Is this a bug or am I misunderstanding something?

Post by ndoolittle »

Hi, relatively new to poker and brand new to this site. Trying out the preflop trainer which has been great, though I encountered this hand which I'm having trouble making sense of. Why would I get 0% on the highest +EV choice? Why would that not even be listed under the frequency, etc? Thanks in advance for any input!

3x open in 100bb poker isn't optimal. In a vacuum it may be the highest EV play with TT but hands that you would fold to a 3-bet have higher EV using smaller opens so the best overall strategy is to merge the all of the hands into a smaller size like 2.25-2.5 to conceal information. I'm a live pro and I play deeper than 100bbs but only use 3x if the bb is $10 or less, mostly because we use $10 chips in Vegas. When there's a straddle in a 5-10 or I'm playing 10-20 I open to 50 and so do some very strong pros here even when very deep. Just play well post flop and the BB will have trouble realizing their equity with their wide range.
