Hey! I play mainly reg tables. Occasionally I'll mix in a z table or two if action is dry or if I feel like just getting hands in.
No stream today, woke up with a bit of a cold. Will be back tomorrow around the usual time (1-2EST)

First stream of the week off to a bang! Great follow up to our last one.
Thanks to those of you who tuned in! I'll be back tomorrow around the same time with another one.
Also to go a bit further on the diet talk in chat: Fiance and I just started a pescatarian diet (might go full vegan at some point), love to hear thoughts/comments of people who've made a transition from eating a lot of meat to going vegetarian. Whether it be meal ideas, vitamin concerns etc would love to hear it.

Hey guys! My name's Jordan and I've played poker for the past 8-10 years.
I currently play MSNL cash.
I decided to make this thread in order to track my progress and stay motivated. As the years have gone by I've found that volume tends to be my biggest issue and that the itch to grind isn't there like it was when I was first getting into the game.
Over the last few weeks leading up to the holidays, I decided to give streaming a try with the hopes that it would make poker more interactive and enjoyable, alleviating the monotony of the daily grind.
What I've found is that streaming has been quite fun for me and that has added to my plans for 2019 where I now plan to stream regularly with the intention of interacting with new people, helping people out, and even using the stream as a form of a live blog.
My twitch stream is : https://www.twitch.tv/angeles89
Please tune in there whenever you can for live streams of MSNL cash with commentary! And make sure to follow along here as I plan to update regularly throughout the year with progress, hands that are interesting, graphs, life etc.
If yall have any other questions or comments fire away, and thanks in advance for the love and support <3

id be checking here sometimes, but mostly I'm betting here with the inention to bet good turns/rivers for our range.
As played this would seem like a fairly clear bet/fold otr. I think shoving is pretty terrible here. At first glance ~ 1/2 pot would seem to do the trick, although slightly more could be okay too. I suppose a really small bet might be okay also if he's as sticky as you say with random pps, but I dont think theres much merit to it

definitely an idea ive flirted with, and I truly believe will be a mainstay in high level NL games as a means to make equity realization easier. Developing the strategy itself and implementing it is a whole different story.

if youre mostly 3betting TT/JJ pre here, which seems likely (lets say 75% of the time or so), we should be pretty weary of the hands were electing to bluff with because of how narrow our crai value range is.
Is this bluff fine in a vacuum? Yes, for sure. That being said, when considering which hands to bluff and when, I think it's far more important to consider your overall range and frequency of your shoves otr - and then to proceed in deciding which hands are best suited for this. (I would imagine you are far too bluff heavy in this spot from the info given)

depends on what exploitative factors we wanna take into a account.
Generally speaking I think everything is fine up until the river which is somewhat close. If you're planning to follow through with most of your bluff combos this is clearly a value bet and likely a bet/call with some frequency. Its good youre not blocking any part of his bluffing range which would lean me towards the call column (more often then not) without more substantial information.

given how tight you are opening you can definitely get away with a lower f23b in these spots.
for example: (22+, A2s+, KTs+, Q9s+, J9s+, T8s+, 97s+, 87s, 76s, 65s, 54s, AJo+, KQo) is roughly 18%.For you to defend half of your btn opens youd need to find 4.5% more.
When coming to these types of decisions too, its important to note that there are situations where your open gets protected indirectly, whether it be by a cold call or a cold 4b or stack depths being deeper which all clearly affect the way you proceed in this spot.
I don't think that it's a huge a mistake to fold ~60% to 3bets when going hu at 100bb, when in reality youd be folding more like 55% of the time in that spot overall. I think its definitely on the tighter side, but not terrible.

I think 64s is a marginal but fine defend. With this stack depth and position it's certainly alright (although unnecessary for our overall gameplan unless were opening like 70% of btns).
I think the raise has some merits but is overall fairly bad, mostly because were not getting nearly enough folds and his range is still quite a bit stronger than ours.
If we're worried about continuing on various runouts I think this is a clear candidate to call as a huge amount of turn cards will increase our equity and allow us to show down with some good frequency.
Overall I think I would elect to value raise this flop with a tighter range and thus bluff/semi bluff less than you are doing with these stack sizes OP

other than books like that I dont really advocate too many books about poker strategy in general, I think practice is generally better than reading books that are largely out of date - although I do intend on looking into chens book math of poker i think
