Pot turn is good. You want max fold equity here. One option that is probably unused is to bet little bit over half pot on turn. ev could be potentially higher here idk. He dont have here top set but you have plenty, especially with half pot sizing. If you bet half pot with blockers and he raises its gg. But thats also true with full pot sizing, because hes range is narrowed too much for T7 and hes raising no matter vs what sizing you did bet, with nut straight. If villain just calls turn 1/2 pot bet, not many straights in his range, because you are blocking also 55 and now you have many rivers to fire pot by bluff. 2, 3, 4, 7, J, Q, K you can pretty much happily shove (if no flush). If flush card comes, you can check and expect somewhat rarely villain turn his hand into bluff (atleast I believe this is the case in micro stakes). Soo if river card is you can pot bluff and now you are against wider range on river, because you did half pot and there is more money to win = which have higher ev, betting full pot or half pot on turn?
So yup, just some thoughts. Betting full pot on turn is definetely good, but always should look outside the box.

Bet small on flop = 1/3 pot. You will get bunch of worse hands to call and these stakes players are pretty rarely bluff raising paired boards on 3bet pots.
On turn bet is correct after flop goes check/check, but your sizing is too big. While your hand is best here almost allways, bet smaller to widen up range villain is calling. Betting this big you get folds from hands that would be calling like half pot bet and you are doing great vs those hands.

One option, what I would probably personally prefer, is betting very big on flop and having two street game. You are blocking KK/QQ. There are times when you get money in flop and your equity is not that great, but pot is pretty big considering its SRP and StackPR is around 4. With BDFD there are some straight completing turns that gives you FD and still you can GII if villain shoves. Betting small, like half pot doesnt make sense, because your realization will be much worse and that sizing attract for calling with many kind of trash.

Vs this kind of crazy 3 bettor, I would def 4bet here. Your hand is good enough against very wide range.
On flop I would just c/f. Hand is too weak to put in check call range. Realizing your equity can be pretty problematic for this to be +ev.

I purchased 10 hours of coaching from Nick like one year ago, finished those hours early of winter and can really recommend Nick as your coach. I learned alot from him and my game took steps forward fast. His thinking process is clear and you will learn ton from him. When he goes in deep mode while talking about spot, personally those were moments where I learned most. Definetely +ev getting coaching from him.

River is burning money. After villain calls turn, he will have alot of 8x hands. On turn your valuebet range with that sizing should be AA and 8x plus maybe some KK, but with kings I would bet little bit smaller. He should fold QQ and weaker hands most of the time on turn.

Opening this hand from MP is too loose, highcards not connected enough plus dangler. I would fold this hand also CO, if BTN is nit then Im opening it from CO.
After when you face 3bet and two calls, Im not totally sure what to do. I mean you get great prize, but your hand sucks and you should not have open it first place. CO is probably very AA heavy, other two players ranges are probably pretty good since they called vs 3bet. I would probably fold this hand and look better spots and hands to make EV.
Flop is clear C/F. CO shouldnt bet this way bare AA, he could easily have aces with nutflushdraw. I mean your hand is currently K high, with second high FD and gutshot, CO and BTN ranges have you crushed.

Thanks for sharing this.
Ive done writing before, but havent done stuff about what I like doing and not, definetely going try in future and see if that improve my life and what I observe while doing so.
Also do you have any tips for doing things that feels boring or unpleasant, but must be done and how I could enjoy more doing those things? Ive read some Brian Mayne book and he said that thinking all the positive stuff what happens when you get job done should help to get you on flow state, but I have found that it helps only minor. Would you have any better ideas?

I currently have two 27" 1920 x 1080 and I can fit 4 tables per monitor with good size but if I try like 6-9 tables, everything is too small.
What kind of monitor I should looking for getting well sized 9 tables?

I agree here with MegaGrinder, betting turn would be better than C/C. Hes not probably betting all his Kxxx combos but is most likely calling those vs resonable bet size. As played river is tricky. Villain can put you hard situation betting pot, if you check.
I dont play 50plo yet but on 10plo people dont semibluff enough these kind of spots on turn where board is paired. If this is the case also on 50plo, I like smallish bet on river to get value from K and fold for a raise.

Dont give up on plo. I have read some of your posts on low stakes plo forum and I can say you have good understanding of the game. After reading your last post, it feels like you are on some sort of tilt and you have some accumulated emotion (there is more stuff about this on Mental game of poker). But basically your negative emotions carry on to the next session and you are allready going to uphill battle on first hand of your session. I would take one week off from poker, it definetely would make good for you and then come back. After that start playing again 25plo for while to get confidence back, mental game back on track and build bankroll for shot to 50plo.
All good to you, hopefully you can crush 50plo asap.

Is there any merit buying Flopzilla/PokerRanger/Power-Equilab rather than going straight for PioSolver basic? Like Can PIO do everything than equity calculators plus more? If not, what of those three you would recommend?
