I cannot think of many combos in his range that will fold the turn. Maybe only some AQhh KQhh 56hh that floated the flop. Still, it's always a sigh-jam OTT... Just one of those spots.

That is just... amazing run! Congrats!

It's a cooler, AQ seems unlikely to check-call flop. KJ/KT/JJ more likely to play this way. I'd still probably just calldown turn+river in case he desided to turn something like QJ/QT/AT in to a bluff.

Great! Then it's time to put the hands in the dirt!

Looks like you are not fighting for pots postflop; Very low WWSF, dipping redline, high fold vs flop cbet%. Maybe you should purchase the Essential subscription here on RIO and start watching low stakes NLHE videos. :)

Congrats on the sick results in 2018! You should feel very proud. :)

My both computers, PC & Laptop are Lenovos. They are very reliable and a lot of engineers/IT-people use them.

It'll never stop unless you stop playing poker. It's just the reality of this game; You will lose money due to variance.

I'd probably take a significant period of time off and re-evaluate my situation if I were you. Changing to a different site/games probably wouldn't hurt your mental state either.

A slightly more serious question:

Knowing you have been grinding for years... Do you still enjoy playing poker or do you often have to force yourself to sit down and grind ?

I can see why you reacted the way you did Saulo Ribeiro , but I posted that question half jokingIy and didn't expect OP to get offended by it. In hindsight, I could have taken a minute or two to think before posting the question. I had 0 intention to offend Onkled or this great journal of his. Peace.

Okey since you asked... I'll start by asking the most obvious one. ;)

NL100 regs top3 most costly leaks and/or your most common exploits vs pool.

Feel free to add more than 3 if you want. ;D

I'd like to know what kind of studying techniques you are currently using? :)

With RB PP rake is lower than stars+ I am playing zoom part-time and winning.

PP > PS all day every day, if you are a small stakes player. (Hint: RB)

To my experience the redline can change drastically depending on how you run, even if you are not changing anything in your strategy. That's at least how it has been for me with a relatively stable redline strat dipping when running very bad.

Apparently this should be a clear fold... Somehow couldn't let it go in game. Maybe some tilt was involved. I remember my thought process was something like: "I just can't fold the nuts" and "all Qx should've bet the turn" -> "he is just trying to get me off of AK/AA" -> call.

Hello RIO,

So this funny hand happened today. What button would you click on river and WHY?
Villain: 23/19/10 WTSD 39,WWSF 48 W$SD 55, river AGG% 33, WonSD raise river 50%(2)

First of all, the odds are not the same, you didn't take the blinds in to account. Secondly, the times we fold to the 3bet, we lose more when we use a larger sizing. Also, you will face more 3bets than cold calls when you open bigger -> less equity realization for your range.

Sick results Saulo, congrats!

I can't help myself, so I have to ask this.. What's up with the limp-raise strat from MP? Could you elaborate? :) If I had to guess, you're exploiting some crazy whale or something like that. I've seen one reg doing it in my pool (excluding SB limp-raises), and been wondering what would be the benefits?

Aug. 8, 2018 | 9:08 a.m.

Playing every hand like you have a set.

All kidding a side, you shouldn't be focusing too much about your nonsd winnings. A lot a of crushers have declining redline. But If I had to throw something out there, I'd guess you have some leaks in blind defence and being too passive overall.
