This is very helpful to think about and challenges my assumptions, which is exactly why it’s fun to post hands in the first place.
Replay ranges are hard to define, especially in unconventional situations like 5- way limps. My note on Bluebadger is that he can limp big hands, including TT/AK. I’m not sure if he would limp them behind this many other players, but he might. As @1Warlock pointed out, my open size was a little small, so his limp-call range would be super wide. My assumption at the time was that he was heavily weighed towards Broadways and pocket pairs, but in retrospect the range I would put him on would be 22-QQ, A2s+, ATo+, all suited broadways, all suited connectors 54+, all suited gappers 64+, K6s+, Q8+, J8s+, and all offsuit broadways (26% of starting hands). I believe he usually folds most hands that missed on the flop.
I was hesitant to post my own range because it is pretty tight and I don’t want to be too face up, but as some people in the “fairness debate” thread would surely tell me, it’s all fake so who cares. I’m pretty new to this stake level (since my bankroll went bust earlier this year), so being up for the session with 15% of my bankroll in front of me and less of an obvious skill edge against players who love to limp- call, I just don’t have a lot of bluffs that I would have in a game where I was more comfortable. So let’s say my range is 99+, ATs+, AQo+, KQs, and A5s. And the ATs, KQs, and A5s might not even be there.
Which range is best on this flop and turn? I don’t have any resources in front of me, but I will proof this with some various ranges later. As I said in an earlier post, i have all the flop sets and QQ+, but I also was thinking at the time that I didn’t have the connectors that made straights and two pair that my opponent might have or nearly as many 2 card flush draws that got there on the turn.
