Hi Dylan,
Nice video, last hand in the 2k you bubble. Why fold A9o against sb shove where he can have a lot of trash and then u do the same against bb with QJo? Its a hand that happen a lot hand usually if i fold that A9o i will fold the QJo, is that wrong?

So all start to become weird in the turn c/r, i really think he is super strong in this situations, i only have a small sample hands from this guy but in 156hand he have a VPIP 3 in the BB he is super tight player, i almost insta fold turn, but i think i can't. What hands could he have there that im not losing? Only Hands im seeing me winning is Q9, or KQ and any other Kx but i blocking a Q and i think we would fold pf Q9 and any K worts than K10 and never doing this with a flush or any draw seen how tight he is. Or a pure bluff, but no way for such a tight player. but this was nl50 never know. So i call turn, hoping for c/c river. and on the river the flush is there and he bets half pot?? Thats where all gets mess, what is that size bet? Dont you guys think its a weak bet? looks like he fear the flush, after he overbet me on the turn, now half pot?? Is not super weird? Or is only me that dont want to let go AQ.

Hope some feedback.

SB checks, Hero checks, UTG+1 bets 5.25 BB, SB calls 5.25 BB, Hero.... ?????

Ok, so my main question is, should i insta fold 52s in this situation in the bb or its ok to defend a few % of the times? So i bassically defend the 52s, and then face that flop, what should i do?

Comment | John Mike commented on Tough Turn Spot

3bet seems to small to me 35$, dont know if is the standart from this player but doesnt look so good in 2/5 game, so ii only see 2 option pf 4bet or fold, never cold call when u still have the UTG to act, dont seem the best spot to cold call!

Once u call i only see one option on the flop c/r, if u face a shove just call u have plenty of EQ. if someone call flop easy shove turn.

I think u should fold pre flop with a10o oop! Maybe 4bet sometimes and fold to any 5bet, seems better to me than call 8x pf oop. But for me is a clear fold pf.

Post | John Mike posted in NLHE: Weird spot with KK in nl100,

So the guy in the bb is 3beting almost every hands, and playing super crazy, so i was try to trap him with the kk, but he simply fold lol
So i have no idea u is the guy in the SB and i have play like 14hands againts him, same with the UTG that i think is a not such a good player because of stack size.

SB checks, UTG bets 5 BB, Hero calls 5 BB, SB raises to 19 BB, fold, Hero calls 14 BB

Turn : (53 BB, 2 players) Kc
SB bets 91.98 BB and is all-in, Hero ????

I think if i had the Kd should be a easy call, and what about this situation? didnt knew what to do.

i am Portuguese guy that love poker, i start playing about 6years ago. Win some mtts and have profit playing cash games, but i stop for a while because i really want to learn the game, understand everything about this game So i subscribe for pro videos, and start with "learning path." Was thinking about seeing everything, but i start to see the videos and feel like a dumb, feel like if i am the most stupid person, dont understand nothing, terms, and thinks the guys talk about. So i really want your opinion, what should i do? I love so much, and i wish i could learn all about him, but maybe is not for me. is that possible? do u think with effort, even if i am not math guys, can i learn it? and get better? Last years i feel like if am not able of achieve anything. And this is one of the things want to be better, learn more but i feel i dont know where to start, and when i find something to start, i get lost.

Sorry for the text, and sorry for my english.

Hello everyone, would like to know your opinion in relation to this play, I was playing quite agg so I decided to just call in bb, as the player who also opened was quite tight and already had 3bet him and thee second player who had call sometimes also, I decided to call! I have little hands of both players so it does not change much the hud. but feel that the turn, and river especially should have played a little different.
