That is exactly at the same point I am now ;). Keep going harder!

I was thinking in medium pairs and every Jx, also all weird stuff made in rectown.
Anyway, I cannot argue against your point ;)

Yeah I felt I was in the limit but couldn't find the fold button.
After that you just start guessing if it was a good call.
Thx man.

March 19, 2019 | 9:34 a.m.

Thanks both for your comments.
I just called here with position and such a pot odds, in other circumstances I love to 4bet/fold as HawksWin well suggested.

Btw, BB won with AKo, and SB had Kx I don't remember the kicker.

Sometimes you only need to read comments like yours, thx.
By the way I'm focusing the most on right sizing when having strong hands.
Cheers!

Thanks for your comment, I'm sure checking back is the best EV line against non-recreational limpers. Not the case I guess

In my humble opinion, and with all due respect, I don't think 30k-60k hands is a long run. When I suffer downswings or been running such bad under the EV, I usually take a look at some poker simulator variance. It helps me to focus on long term.
Also I have to say that you seem to have a good disciple and routine, so don't give up!

March 18, 2019 | 9:27 a.m.

Totally agree with your comments, Now I feel I little bit ashamed for how I played hehe.
Thanks a lot!

Comment | Monthol commented on AA flopplay

It seems well played to me. I'm still pretty confused with donkbets in NL5, I have seen how players donkbet with air, with top pair, flushdraw, bottom pair, completed straight, etc... Player notes do the trick.

I would have bet slightly different here:
PF a bit stronger 3Bet to $0.24
FLOP Cbet to 1/3, something like $0.13 or so
I play check/fold on turn, we're beaten most of the times.

Hello, in my own experience (just in case you find it useful):

When I moved from tournaments to cash, I started playing directly at NL5. Everything ran smoothly fine during the first 50k hands or so, winning at ~9bb/100h.
But when I started at NL10, everything's changed and I lost at a rate of almost 10bb/100. I was playing pretty much the same, though.

Here are the impressions I got:

  • 10k, 20k, 50k hands are not enough in order to be certain sure about your real win/loss rate.
  • When a downswing appears, maybe you start playing more hands PF, or maybe less (fear).
  • I realized that the stats could be the same, but not the spots you choose to get in, nor the decisions you make.
  • A strong Preflop game helps you to feel more confident and to get more focused on making good decisions Postflop (where you usually earn/lose most of the money)
  • Study, mentalize, play, repeat.

That was my small contribution.

I admit I tend to be afraid of Cbets OOP, I'll work on this leak, thank you!

Thanks for your reply and the welcome!

Maybe the villain is more likely to have a made strong hand and don't want to see another spade? Something like sevens or tens, or even a made flush with KsQs?

Dunno :) I expect an answer from any experienced member here, because it's an interesting spot.
