    Hey guys (it seems there are no girls at all actually)

    I went broke lately from bad plays and I got mad for my bad run, so I came back yesterday in NLHE cash game. So boring, and so easy…. The only thing funny in this game is the overbet on the river… But that is not my subject.

    Because of my preselection of betting, I was betting PF 3,5BB. I was the only one in NLHE with this bet size. It worked pretty well. I saw that my opponents were betting or 2,5BB, or 3BB PF.

    There is an usual thing in live games, in NLHE 1-2, to bet 5x, and everyone, after a while, do the same betting than the others.

    So i got this thought in my head. Did anyone really try in solver to resolve what is the optimal bet preflop ? I have the intuition it should be the same for PLO and NLHE, and I think it must be quite difficult to ask this to the solver…..

    Did anyone make the work for a question which seem obvious for PLO players, and for NLHE players, but maybe everyone does what everybody else do….. ?

    Hi Funkarello,

    Based on my experience and the testing I have done in the past on PLO cash, in most situations the solver prefers to just raise full pot preflop. There are exceptions in some circumstances, especially when rake gets lower and you play short. I havent spent much time on it anymore as the outcomes where so much leaning towards raising pot in most situations.

      Hi Luuk,

      I knew you made the search, and I’m using that.

      My question was more about NLHE and why in CG they would not used that bet size (3,5) also ?

      I know you’re not a NLHE coaching site 🧐, but I was interested in the comparison of the both games.
