For sure always u can improve the winrate of ur flats
1) being better postflop defending more vs 3bet
2) start being nittier vs 3bets and play a nittier range u know better
As for now, assuming ur rfi is 2.5x everywhere
yes u winning in normal bb/100 but take in more respect the ev/100....
Ur doing kinda fine , u can study some pots u played in CO MP which seems to be the most hurting ;)

its obv normal to be negative when u called 3bet preflop....
The thing How much negative is profitable????
That has to do with ur rfi sizing .....
For example lets say ur rfi size on btn is 2.4x ..
--That means that u should aim when u calling a 3bet and playing postflop to loose at maximum by -240bb/100 in order to make ur flat profitable........ If u loosing like -120bb then ur flat versus 3bet is pretty profitable ^^ ....
Make ur adjusts with ur personal rfi sizes in every position , and go to by positions with called preflop 3bet on and see what are ur numbers by pos.....(keep in mind u need big sample kinda to have in this spot over 1k sample in each position ^^ )
Now as long as improving the spot , yy what have been answered above mainly :) gl!

--Its a good idea to have ur whole range checked when u are that deepstacked 324bb's OOP ( dont mind the cb too -but more fine to check in general).....Also , its good to make it big preflop , 8.5bb u made is so so so easy life for him IP.........try to make his middle range having harder time ( at least 12.50bb )
--Doesn't make sense to fold river,
if u believe u had the best hand on the turn, why on 2 river( which is the totally blank card you want to see when u bluff catch ) u dont continue ? :P
--Apart from feeling approach , Clubs/str8 draws missed(+u unblock clubs too by holding spades)......so another positives for calling....
--plus one said u open doors for bluffing , so that's cool reason for calling too
Also , keep in mind --- If it was 100bb spot then yy , you can cb small flop/go for triple etc.. ^^

Quido it's vs MP .. but even vs EP its a defend. i would say that its higher that 18% ... Prop around 20% territory.... And another reason to defend wider on our bb is that his open size is smaller than 3x..... Q8s is not
even bottom defend range....... Also wanna hear other opinions about this too .

I think is a fine play at least pre - flop - turn for sure... On turn im little Meh but we should bluff ( prop im potting /overbeeting slightly).... River more mehhhhhhh but u have to pull the trigger as long as u end up here :) ...........Also it's not a same to give up turn and dont bluff all ur Q8s as u already have some worst combos like 8high's etc............. But try to choose an opponents that cbet a lot of flops and are kind of std wtsd <27 .... Ofc if it's unknown its totally fine to be a little more aggro cause u dont have stats each other and will play conservative.
Sept. 11, 2016 | 9:47 a.m.
I dont at all how to judge this hand .. cause i dont lead flop .... im checking always and if i lead i think i dont overbet (esp on rainbow board) .......
Now when u say no reads u mean this is the first orbit or hand with him?
( A couple of showdowns/spots should be helpful )
Is Btn having fun?
(That means he has wider flatting sb range..)
Dunno prop im not folding ever a set.. but prop it isn't too bad to fold in this situation i guess.
Sept. 10, 2016 | 11:10 a.m.
well , my guess is on Flops that we dont need to do a lot of protection and we block his calling range it's better to pick up smaller sizes..... ...... Tbh on turn is fine to small bet again. ( esp with spade , heart , club , diamond cards -- no backdoor fd's ) but keep in mind in general on 3bet pots you have to set up stacks for jammming river... so u are setting up the sizes ( on flop and turn )..
Sept. 9, 2016 | 5:38 p.m.
well i would prop 3bet stack off flop.. But since it's deeper than 100bb's or whatever call is fine ( and prop better too )
On turn i would not xback i would bet 1/2 with intention of snap call.
We are loosing only from QQ ( which is kind of strange play to be x/raised on flop ) and we dont block spades so he prop x/jam turn vs 1/2 all his spades,AQ,KK etc
Sept. 9, 2016 | 5:31 p.m.
I think the decision that matters the most is preflop... And from that defend we start having problems post... Not enough clean and secure realization of where we stand in the hand even with top pair + straight........ Prop u should know that and it's not ur std defend anyway.... .......
Do you think people are pulling the trigger often enough there at these runouts to call QTo?
Obv no... But if it's my first fight and he is loose reg i would call him and any other type of player i would happily fold.
Sept. 9, 2016 | 5:18 p.m.
I think folding str8 here prop is good overfolding... Indeed it's not overfolding @ all if u think that btn has a very narrow range .. And if somehow someone has wider it's not the end of the world cause we have better strength hands..
Also i would prop size my flop size much bigger ... cause i dont think btn will continue with a range that will not stack off later so i can name the price us up as i want.
Also turn is a card that we want to check a lot of the times.

We have to think a little about the opponent we going to bluff..... How much he defends , how much he goes to sd and that type of stuffs.....
If for example he dont defend pre ( folding >60 to 3bets) and calling two streets OOP with KQx texture then ur check back is fine..esp when we block spade which isn't good..
As for betisizing, what i would like to do is either bet small or big not half on flop and bomb turn with my nuts - bottom bluff range...
Lets say i have top top KK and block almost all his calling range + dont need protection .. There isn't any reason to go much bigger than 1/3 .. That allows me to bluff cheap also...
And on turn by overbetting we putting the opponent on tougher spot both with our bluffs/value.
And for second flop betzing would choose about close to pot 3/4.. With my top pair good top kickers like AK,KJ,KT,K9 and the reason is their equity isn't strong enough to blow ur whole stack on future stacks so u need to bet a good amount from the flop .. and choose some tricky xback turn call blank rivers cards or bet turn xback rivers etc...
July 14, 2016 | 2:25 p.m.
good pre if u somehow spotted some weakness.(folding pre,calling fur setmine a lot ,dont 4beting,folding postflop etc) or just a random 1tabler ofc.
Post u have to peak 2 streets for ur hand as an overcard hitted the deck.
i would xback F -> bet two later prop..
Without hating a small size cbet if he is a reg -- but keep in mind Vs rec players 1/3 size can lead to some random x/r range.

im not used to think about as played cause i wont be in the spot too ofthen to know how they players play.... But as long as the general pool wont turn sd value like Qx into a bluff i lean towards than his range is thin Ax so prop fold, and i guess KK would be too tricky to turn into a bluff shove against nanoAx's,AJ,AT.?? dunno
July 3, 2016 | 12:28 p.m.
ur play is fine , i wouldn't fold but not a happy calldown @ lot,
i guess cause it's a spot that we prop not see many bluffs( not even close to any bluff in practice i guess expofolding too could not be a mistake)... As he looks that fights in smeway ( 26/23 ) is more fine call rather lets say we play vs a 19/15..
July 3, 2016 | 12:42 a.m.
i would prop 3bet pre esp vs fish not prop ..
As played expecting to get raised by worst made hands from fish almost always( if he is whale/aggrofish he dont understand how ranges works when flush completes on paired board etc)
so normal bet size like 2/3 or some tricky 1/3 1/2 on R it's the best i guess.
