So this is a brag and a beat. I final tabled 3 tournaments last night. Total of over 5k up top and I finished 9th, 8th, and a respectable 5th in the smallest out of the 3. Total win of $456 after 7 hours. It was a fun experience but I just wish I'd ran and played a little better down the end. Final table hype was in full flow last night though. Best of luck everyone.

I would bet a little closer to half pot on the flop like $7 or even check that flop since if opponent does call you're not going to be looking to get 3 streets here unless you get a very favorable runout. I would probably fire $7 on flop and check back this turn and see what the river holds. I think you can have opponent in some tough spots where they value own themselves or simply make a bluff and they don't know how strong you are since you've checked back the turn. I think as played its a fold on the river here. You dont beat anything really that gets to that river and the donk bet here on this board doesn't seem to be bluff heavy in my opinion. I am by far no expert so I am just saying this is how I might of played it different.

My question is do you think 9 man and HU sngs are still worth playing at all really? Cash games seem to be getting a little tougher as time goes by and they should be getting tougher with all the training sites like this one out. I just wonder besides playing tournaments if when you get a little tired of grinding out cash games if playing sngs would be worth a shot. I play 50NL and 100NL 6H on Ignition by the way if that makes any difference. I am open to playing on BetOnline or ACR since I have PT which it would be nice to get the full value out of anyway.
Thanks for any advice someone can give.

I have been looking for a video series like this for a long time. I used to practice golf in high school and college 10-20 hours a week and only play 2 rounds which is about 8 or 9 hours. I can't wait for the next one and learning how to "practice" better

I am looking for good reading material on cbetting certain boards when you're the preflop raiser. I am trying to learn when to be cbetting and not cbetting. I know this leak in my game is causing me troubles on the turn and river. It's basically a snowball affect when you make one bad decision it seems. I am only playing 50NL and I know there are good videos on here but I am looking for more reading material and wondered if anyone had a good suggestion or 2. Free material is obviously better.
Thanks in advance for all the help.

SO I am just getting back into the game after a little time off and was wondering what you guys and gals thought about the 2 different sites America's Card Room and Ignition. I like the idea of getting 27% RB because thats about 2bb/100. I also like the thought of being able to use my HUD from PT3 and then when I get some hands under my belt be able to play more than 4 tables. I was just wondering what the overall concensus was. Thanks guys and gals.

I just started using PokerSnowie and am loving it. I only am using the trial version but I have learned a ton about position and such so far. Does anyone have any advice for me to make sure I get full value of the free trial. I am only a 50NL player on Ignition. I really appreciate any advice I can get. Thanks in advance.

I also just added you on skype too. I had some questions about making my own blog about my journey through 2017. Seems like it would help the blah of the grind.

I wasn't sure what to do here on turn. I felt like if a A or K doesnt come on river this guy bluffs and I don't think I am beating any of his calling range on the turn but I also felt he would cbet flop with his over pairs bigger than my JJ. Any help on how I played this would be great. It is on Bovada so its anon so basically readless.
Feb. 19, 2016 | 6:46 a.m.
I think raising preflop and getting it in is probably best too. Just wondering how others felt about it because in the micros we run into super fish that do this so its a spot I run into a fair amount. Pople 3 betting always to very small amounts or even just 3 betting period constantly

I do know that at the micro lmits they are usually fairly value heavy when they are raising. Especially into 2 players. I also block his draws to the nut straight with my JJ. Just wondering what you all think. Should I just fold flop?

Villian had been 3 betting around 70% and just betting all streets. When he checked the flop this time it made me feel that he may of had some value here. I couldn't decide if it was a call on the river or not. Might should have just got it in preflop probably but I am still knocking the rust off from being off for a year. Thanks Guys.

Hey Guys and Gals,I am looking for a few serious people to join in a Study/Accountability Group on Skype. I have been out of the poker game for about 14 months due to some personal issues with my 4 year old son. I am hoping to find a few good people to work on our game with in 2016 working our way up nice and slow. I have been playing some 25NL on Bovada to get my feet wet only playing 2 or 3 tables so I can focus on my decision making. I am hoping we can just discuss progress and review some hands as well as keep each other accountable to our goals. I am very serious about working on the process of getting better and working on the mental side of the game. I feel this will not only help out on the tables but in life as well. If anyone is interested add me on Skype (Flash2717) or post in this thread or PM me and we can discuss what your goals and ambition are for 2016. We're going to take it a week at a time working toward being as disciplined as we can possibly be.
