SB completing strategy – weakest hands
MemberMarch 17, 2021 at 7:40 am
Since I’m playing in very loose games with lots of limpers I was wondering how wide should I be completing in the SB and with what hands.
It seems that every suited Ace is good enough but I’m not sure since we will be multiway and OOP for the entire hand.
Hands like AJ42 (suited Ace) seem OK but they are very hard to play and win big.
So my question is:
What are the weakest combos that you’re completing in the SB in multiway pots?
I would like to know the weakest unpaired single suited A/K/J/T combos specifically in order to adjust my strategy.
I would assume the lower the broadway card, the more connected the hand should be.

I would answer genuinely 1/ and 2/ seems good enough to try to catch a NFD ? But its just a personal guess….

So I think that the best way to think about this is to iso pretty much anything that’s in a sb v button 3 bet range with the exception of your trashier Aces and the middling double suited hands. The aces would just be completes. The rundowns would just be folds as they don’t tend to play very well in multiway pots given how often a higher flush draw is going to be out there (I just ran a sim in odds oracle and when we have 9876 w 8 hi diamonds, on Td4d2h, 9 hi diamonds or better is out there 50% of the time w 3 limpers.) If I had to guess, you can probably complete with your hj opening range giving a little more credence to KK/QQ as they will be flopping top set a reasonable amount of time (don’t go overboard, you still need a little something to go with them.) Pairs lower than TT are mostly going to be folds. The only exception to this is going to be double suited pairs with an ace. Hands that are going to go up in value are going to be some of the trashier double suited ace hi hands as well as single suited ace hi hands with a nut suit. All in all, realizing equity is just very hard to do first to act 4 ways in a deep spr against wide ranges. You really need to be much tighter than you would think is profitable. Also, note well that everything I have said up to this point is purely intuition; I have no data backing any of this up, and while I’m fairly confident it is correct, I could be way off.
