It's the piosolver hand. Only a sliver of KQo combos is missing.

Why are you not 3betting KQo from bb v minopen sb?
Aug. 31, 2017 | 10:54 p.m.
34:29 Why do you like to 3bet less than 4x minraise?

I watched your video again and realized ip player only betting around 1/3 on the river. At least in nl25 people either shove turn or on the river. What to do then?
And how to combat the notorious A on the flop? Such annoying decisions have to be made with our weak kickers.
Also I want to ask how well does this strategy work against button opening 3x instead of 2x?

I understand. Maybe we could try 3betting smaller against small stacks if they were really loose. Let's say they were minraising every hand but we wouldn't want to bust out with KQo so we could 3bet like 5bb.

It is not clearly to me when to shove and when to 3bet. 23:09 AJo you wanted to shove but with 99+ you wouldn't. In the last hand with QQ you again wanted to shove. Sure the original raiser had only 13bb left, but we had 21bb and had two more opponents left compared to the AJ spot.

I analyzed a few of my lost hands. This is mainly for myself as to start analyzing more. If anyone bothers to check any of these hands and has a hell storm brewing cause of bad play feel free to smash it upon me.
My failed bluffs:
I am blocking Q flush but unfortunately also blocking TJ straight draw. Maybe I should bluff with 7d or Td hands.
Danger town after he called the turn. I have a feeling many have aces here as so many already fold the flop.The good news is I am not blocking the missed bd fd on the river. I am also blocking the straight, but it might be better if I had a 9 instead of 8. Calling two streets with 8 outs rather than 4 must be more enticing. Also not many call 3-bets with 84.
He shouldn't have too many 7x in his hands, maybe just 87,97,A7. All in all I don't know.
Space poker. This is why aliens lose in every movie. At least I didn't donate my whole stack.
Note to self don't bluff full pot sized bets on the river. It is preferable to not be a donkey. Leave the donkeys to Colombians.
This hand might be quite typical of me. Make a loose call on the flop, flip a draw or something, bluff the river no matter what. I guess I am trying to bluff him off KK or TJ. Pretty bad, boy.
My failed calls:
I used to just fold this pf, but I just recently learned calling 4bets is quite good. On the turn I am not blocking any of the flushes but that also means a better chance to bluff with Ksx for example. Always an optimist I am.
I guess cold calling 3bets with JJ is normal. Going for max retard value on the river must be wrong even against coffeehouse players. T and 9 flushes are already there. I should either check or bet like 1/4-1/3 pot.
Calling 55 pf should be okayish. The problem with bluffing the river is I might just have too many bluffing hands here. Still I feel like 5s and Ts should be good bluff hands. 9s would block his missed straight draw. Also people 3bet TT more than 99. With TT he might call as its blocking the straight.
KJo would be a better hand to bluff as it wouldn't block the flushes that much. A decent % of flop flushdraws villains bet on the flop, so blocking the bd fd is quite annoying. KhJd would be perfect as it also blocks QJs and KQs much better. Still I must bluff the river with bd fd sometimes, and I just don't know often I should and with what cards and what rivers...
The infamous minraise on the river. He started with 93bb so he could even have A2o. Fold is the most solid move.
Not sure about the river here. I do have noticed they rarely fold donkbets when I reraise them.
And another river question. I guess this one is okay. He checked the flop after all.
So I make a weird C-R with a middle pair. I guess trying to make my hand easier to play. And a crying call on the river to make my play spectacular. I am not sure people are bluffing at all in that spot.
Putting it in for value kinda:
AKo with a fd is favorite to us. I guess my best hope is to get a call from AT and not many of those 3-bet UTG+1. Many middle pairs also just check and call or bet smaller. I should just call the flop bet and probably most of the time fold to a shove on the turn even if it bricks.
First of all people bluff less from BB than SB. How many C-R bluffs in 3-bet pots on the turn have I seen? Surely not many. I also could have given myself a chance to fold river, but nooo I liked to get it in now like a 15 year old kid with his church girl.

One good thing about poker is no taxes in most sites. Government loves taxes due to people like me, so the effect of making it in poker is a minor hallelujah. My nickname comes from a wuxia story. He is one asshole MC.

Indeed the opportunity is there but how to grasp it? As I replied to another comment I already beat nl10 but in another site. Nl25 seems to be made of only evil, greedy people ready to beat down any grasshopper. It seems it is time to pray with even more passion to the Gods of pokertracker and runitonce.

I have been trying to learn this game almost every day. Mostly videos and that I guess is a leak, as reading your handistory and stats might be more important. I started with nl4 and beat up to nl10 in another site. I could't beat nl25 and also pokerstars had the best software, so I moved there. First I was winning, then losing, then winning and now losing very badly. -1300 in a week or so with no huge tilts or doom switches. I am a bit puzzled how it happened so quickly.

I actually didn't finish school due to poker and having no friends there. I felt miserable and poker was profitable back then. They didn't continue my contract due to too little work. But really, there was no money or future in that job anyway, so I was quite happy about it. BRM cant't handle -7.5BB every 100 hands.

46k hands at nl25 zoom this month, BB/100 -7.5. Nine years ago I used to be a winning player at nl200, but a year or two later I quit. Oh how the times have changed. Today people are better at nl25 than they were at nl200. Plus the dear bots that will soon destroy online poker once and for all. I am unemployed, and I have no education. I have had only one job in my life and it was shitty, but really interesting to this retard. Unfortunately they kicked me out last fall after almost three years. I got no money, but the government of Finland loves unemployed people. So it is easy to rent a place and play some poker with their moneyzz. I have been trying to relearn this game for around three months now, obviously to no avail. I can't handle the frequencies. How to find out the right frequencies to call and to bluff? I Today I tried omaha zoom and I lost 6 buy-ins or so. I am 29 and fml.
April 19, 2017 | 5:21 a.m.
I counted 40 value combos and 44 bluffs. This article is using 60/40 value/bluff frequency in 4-bets when calling 4-bets are not allowed. Is it still possible to call with profit?

Come join this horrible thread my brother cultivators. Let us beat each others with sticks and stones. Let us become the true chosen ones and ascend to heaven and live an immortal life.

Please help us oh you divine will. Let us become the fish that leapt over the dragon gate. Give us wisdom and frequencies and equities and money and bitches and ice cream and bacon.

Check it out I am in a really bad shape. Come on please please gimme gimme gimme I need I need I need gimme gimme please please please

Do you almost always make blocking bets only with medium strength hands and air? I feel like raising 100% in those spots would just lead to profit. I mainly use full potting on the river no matter the situation. Though I like to check medium hands. Can opponents use that against me? It seems there is video on blocking bets here but it is elite so I can't watch it.
