so basically shove or fold on flop. flatting and folding was deff bad the worst lol. 3bet shoving doesn't seem good either tho kuz we r not shoving for value if he calls we r beat or chopping... but to just fold flop seems tight

B 14.25
SB 45.26
MP 83.57
HJ 39.50 (hero)

folds to MP, MP opens 1.75, hero flats B and SB call, no history just sat at the table and don't have/use a HUD sence im on wsop .com

POT 7.13 3c 3h Qc

SB x, MP bets 3.75, hero calls, B jams 12.50, so its hard for him to have a three but this is pretty gross. then the sb fold and MP just calls. so this is were I get confused, I think im suppose to fold here but don't have to be right to often to call.. anyways I call turn comes 7d and mp open shoves, and now im really lost and fold..... whole thing feels gross any ideas?

I hate these spots also they also happen to me a bunch, I think fish cakes just gets there a bunch, its usually "i have a good hand so im gonna X turn so he'll bet" then when u don't bet and the river comes fish thinks "omg I need to make money this hand lets make up for the turn missed money and just jam river" its a really fishy line but folding is almost always the right play there would have to be a verrrry big read for u to hero call here, if he is a fish there is gonna be a million better stops to take all his chips :)

hero 17.15 LJ
villain 20.38 UTG2

folds to villain who opens to .52 I 3bet with AhQh to 1.19, everone folds back around to villain who just calls.

pot 2.55
board 9hQd5s

villain checks, I bet 1.54 he calls

pot 5.48
board 9hQd5s 8s

villain checks, I bet 4.32, villain min raises to 8.64...

this is where I have the most confusion, I feel like calling is bad sense if he jams river I'm folding most of the time, but it feels gross to fold here to the min raise and if I 4bet jam my last 6 bucks in here if called I'm almost never good. so to be honest I called his min raise river was the Jh he opened shoved and I folded... just looking for any advice I'm sure the river is a clear fold so I'm guessing maybe I shoulda just let her go on 4th st. thx in advance for any comments :)

Should I always be raising here? I think this was my first mistake I think a raise would have gotten more value and protected my hand a little better, BUT I had predetermined that most turn cards I was for sure gonna re raise  esp to another pot size bet.  

turn: [7c]
AAwrangler bets (3.50)

I think my sizing is deff off shoulda made it closer to ten maybe? the 7 is kind of a bad card

obv should have folded I guess, I hate this hand any advice would be great :)

Comment | PT commented on FR .25/.50 SB spot

I need to watch the range and balance vids on here again clearly haha:).. I deff agree that this line needs to go. sometimes I feel like I wayyyy over think in the games I play. so in your first point u said "youd bluff this card" when im in spots how should I be looking at my hand? like when I have this huge hand I should be thinking about what id do if I had a weak hand? I basically just think how can this hand make me the most money, n I think between that n just auto pilot clickling I lose money. like im either getting wayyyy to creative or im just like "hurff durff this is standard"(click)

So.. I guess my thought process was I didn't want to call miss the flop n fold so I either wanted to fold or shove? if that's right idk that's just what I thought. I didn't want to go all in kuz it felt almost like a bluff sence im guessing anything he calls with im at best flipping a coin with SO sence I feel/felt I had a bit of a skill edge at the table I would wait for a better spot continue to chip up make money n not flip a coin for 50 bucks... seems pretty tight tho what do u guys think?

flop: [6d 2s 5d]
derfj checks
Dragou91 bets (4.50)
PT calls (4.50)
derfj folds

so again weird spot for me folding on this board felt way to tight but I remember thinking "well if I call here im not loving if he puts out a big turn bet so if im not wanting to call a big turn bet shouldn't I just fold here??" but then still elected to call lol.

turn: [Th]
Dragou91 bets (14.34) and is all-in
PT folds

so the one thing all these st's have in common is once again I have no idea if I was suppose to fold here. I mean at these stakes they seem to "always have it" so I folded feeling that all I really had was a bluff catcher, so actually I guess this st im pretty sure this was a fold when he shoves, so to close, I REAAALLLYYY need some help here RIO peeps because I no this is a BIG leak of mine I no im loosing tons in these spots, ive been looking into building a range that other than the button, literally any hand (this is at full ring btw) that has a 8 in it or lower esp offsuit hands I just fold including these pocket pairs but 88-JJ im told are almost the exact same so maybe 77 or less just fold idk im rambling now I just want to give u as much info as I can to get the best most money saving answeres that I can :) thx all

PlankyB folds
Nicccc folds
pokerextreme calls (2.50)

so now theres about 6 in the pot im heads up with villain and thinking his hand isn't very great due to lip calling so his range is wide n he prob thinks I could be attacking limpers so also may have a wider range.

flop: [7s Jh 4d]
PT bets (4.50)
pokerextreme calls (4.50)

It a pretty dry board so when he calls im thinking some kind of jack im guessing if he flopped a set or most to pairs that hes going to R not just call.

turn: [Ac]
PT checks
pokerextreme checks

so when this ace hits I have like the nuts theres no possible flush and im guessing he cant have much so I X thinking ill give him a chance to bluff if he thinks I just have overs or a weaker range that just tried to steal then is cbetting n giving up when called.  I figured if I bet im almost never getting called

river: [8h]
PT bets (27.50) and is all-in
pokerextreme calls (16.10) and is all-in

so I bet all in again trying to look the weakest I can looks really fishy after tunr goes X/X


what do u guys think of how I played this hand should I have bet turn how would u guys have played it ect..

I feel like a super fish not because I lost but I have literally no idea what I did wrong or if I did something wrong. I no spots like this are y im becoming a break even player and not a profitable player. I have almost never played full ring online and I no that's throwing me off as well but that's all that runs on so I don't have a choice just need to adjust some things. any advice on this hand full ring in general (I only played 6max) ultimatepoker, vegas ect would all be appreciated :).ive been playing a lot of hands recently and its giving me a weird feeling like im getting worst idk if anyone can relate or give advice but my brain and me don't seem to be working on the same page

Comment | PT commented on WHAT IS XX/100BBS

ohhhh... that makes sence, I play 1/3 live in vegas very new to all this online stuff never used a hud and just put my first deposit on ultimate will be playing .10/.25 on there until I turn my 500 deposit into a grandish then ill take some shots, or when I feel more comfortable with the online thing. I think I do well but man, ranges and vpip pfr and whatever else is super new to me. sometimes I feel like esp when watching vids that they are just using extremely big words and crazy theory to describe simple or normal things that ive been doing for years? .. lets just say this site has been a little overwhelming thus far hahaha :) 

June 9, 2014 | 12:57 a.m.

Post | PT posted in Chatter: WHAT IS XX/100BBS

sorry I no it has something to do with how many bb u win per hr but is someone could PLZ explain this to me in better detail that would be so awesome!! :) also what is a normal or average xx/100 for a pro or winning player to have. I have always just looked at what hrly rate is im super new to this xx/100 thing? thx in advance to whomever comments :)

June 8, 2014 | 10:52 p.m.

Chael can u plz explain what u mean by "exploitatively, you should fold, game theory wise its a call?" so its a obv fold kuz he/she esp at these stakes his range is always beating our actual hand. but if we were playing at a hi stakes level were guys knowing this will be bluffing a lot we would get exploited or something if we folded to them? sorry this is just crazy confusing to me but id love to LEARN!! :) thx

June 8, 2014 | 10:19 p.m.

agreed^^ yea it sucks but hes never shoving with anything you beat.. I love the "u save 50bb which increases your winrate a lot" line. sometimes when playing micro I can be like "4 more bucks, I have a flush hurf a derf I CALL!!" but when u look and blinds saved it really does make a diff. :)

June 8, 2014 | 9:21 p.m.

sorry but y are we talking about shoving river? just kuz it looks the weakest right? I think I like a nitty x back. if we bet like 2 here and he shoves then what do we do? fold? so to me it seams like a x back or shoving we make the least amount of mistakes.. not sure if when we shove hes gonna call with a lot of worse hands unless hes really bad.. if we shove will he ever fold his over pairs or hands we chop with (AQ) ? shoving feels boarder line like we are turning our top pair into a bluff... just because worst is almost never calling so we're hoping they fold when we shove? idk I might be way of correct me if I sound stupid. im nitting it up all day in this spot tho imo:)
