I do have the same dreams, haven't work that hard for it though. But there are more important things in my life, where I do have to focus at. Like family health job. But as I do have a quite a lot of time I do want to spent ist for Poker, too. But must importantly, everything should be making fun. So if you do not feel like playing, than play less. And if you play, than play less tables. Not for building your br, just for learning the game more deeply. go down in some stakes. Or try to play some life, there you could have a more easy way to make money. And continue to lay 2-3 tables of Omaha online. Just some ideas which could help. Most successful people enjoy what they are doing. So loosing money which matters do not satisfy. So playing lower could compensate this. Also playing to much can be annoying.

Have you had any Coachings, yet. This could give you some confident. As I know you playing over bankrolled, this could be a good investment

ah ok thx. Flop Strategy from Leszek Badurowicz covers this concept also very nicely.
Jan. 7, 2019 | 10:22 a.m.
Happy New Year!
Welcome back to PLO - yeahhh
But now, when I'm in bad shape equity-wise on the flop and my opponent checks to me, I'm going to be checking a lot more often than before.
Do you have some examples, please?

Invest $0,9 to win $2,7 -> 1/3 -> so it has to work in 1 out of 3 times / in 25% to BE on the flop. If we can't get any folds we probably have ~20% to improve to TTP or Trips.
Or in 22,5% of the time we will get our FD on the turn and can keep the pressure on. We could still have a set on the turn when betting out FD on the turn.
In rare cases, (~8,5%) one of our opponents could call with an OESD like 34, 46 or 68 with a BDFD.
If I do understand right. You would prefer checking on that flop with our hand because the SB want fold enough and we can only continue on a few turn run outs?
What hands would you prefer betting? And what are the advantages of checking? We can keep worse dd-hands and bottom / 2nd pair hands in which can potentially be dominated on turn or river. I can't see to many advantages in checking. If we can't improve, than we can't call any turn bet which can result us folding the best hand.

I do like the line a lot, but only if Villain knows we do / it is common to value bet at least TP on the river.
Heros preflop perceived range contains a lot of xxyy-, high / middling cards and less JJ+ combos. Hero will call the flop bet with a lot of bd-draws. ~40% of the time Hero will improve to 2-pair or better(12%), FD(25%) or Wrap(1,3%) on the turn.
Villain probably expect Hero to stab here often with his draw, air and made hand range, so he can go for a x-raise (thin value / protection / bluff) with his TP/OP and draws, especially as the SPR is that low.
As Hero did x-back the flop he has a lot of hands with sd-value and less air in his range with whom he wants to get to showdown. As Villain didn't bet on the river he shouldn't have that much KK, AA (1 A Hero blocks) in his range. Therefor Villain has a hard time calling of the river bet, although Mr. do not rep that much sweets here.
Villain probably has to call with any A5+ here. In Heros shoes we probably have to bet at least all QK+ for value, so that we can bluff here.
I am curious about Mr. Sweets comments.

I am sry to here. You have given some good advice to the community.
But there are also a world out side of poker, so not much lost. All the best.

What do you do with the hands in HM2 like "bad play" or "good lines"?
The "good lines" probably comes in to your note book which you reread every day and the "bad lines" you will just review once in a while, like every week once so they want repeat over and over again, or comparing all the "bad lines" with each other if there are similarities, like calling to much cbets in 3bet pots.
would you xplain it more in detail? Have you any updates according improvements of your game?

thx, if I made the right calculation in PokerJuice than we are an about 57% favorite vs villains SOR. Yeah his betting range, especially that big is probably very strong. I did gave him the following betting range J8+,567,9TQ,79T,Jhh,QThh,7Thh,79hh,Q9hh which is also his SOR.

Bet smaller on the flop, imo ($3-4). You block folks' continues hard on a dry flop, and you want to have a somewhat balanced MW cbetting range that doesn't size transparently according to hand strength, which becomes expensive overall (imo) if you don't size down when you're strong like you are here.
When do never bluff here, why we should downsize our betsizing? You mean that we can play smaller pots with hands like A8, K8 or ATQ?
Nov. 30, 2018 | 10:18 a.m.
Are you saying they've led the river 5 times out of 19? Because that doesn't sound super infrequent to me, but maybe I'm wrong. I haven't looked at what's typical.
No this should be 5 % as I know. OM2 ist displaying it like that.
Nov. 30, 2018 | 10:11 a.m.
Imo one more reason we should bet bigger is, that we never bluff here.
A8 and Ax probably want call if we pot here? Could be 3/4 pot a proper bet-size?
Should we bet 1/2 pot or less in the following scenarios?
Hero UTG and BB calls?
The UTG range will be very AA heavy, so we could bet our whole range for about 1/3 pot.
Should we bet less than 1/2 pot in any 5 way pot? and why?
Nov. 29, 2018 | 1:27 p.m.
We have 24% to improve to a better hand. We are getting about the right odds 26% to call a shove on the turn.
Villain will probably bet all his straights and x-back sets. If we shove ourselves we could get paid from these sets.
Other considerations could be:
Our UTG Opening Range shouldn't contain that much sets, so Villain could be more intended to 3bet his Sets on the flop. Most players Push or fold smaller sets when get x-raised. Therefor villain shouldn't have any Sets in his rage. If this is truth than he may, in rare cases has some floats in his range and will bet as bluff on the turn. Or what could be possible too - he x-back all non-nut-straights and we get a free card or even showdown. Also nut so likely but than we could go for x/c.
I think everything but folding will be +ev. I would tent to x/c on the turn when he x-behind on the turn, than x/f the river.
By the way, if we do not bluff on the flop that often we should pot here, imo.
Nov. 28, 2018 | 12:09 p.m.
On the turn we do not rep. anything, except in rare occasions K8 or 88. What will fold are weaker F- & SD, which we are dominating. We are last to act so we are able to realize your Eq. Same suggestion I got from you in 1 of my last 2 threads.
Nov. 23, 2018 | 4:30 p.m.
What about denying eq on the flop? Is the case of getting worse draws, like FD or SD to call, which are dominated higher in value? Or is the chance of getting any folds from this kind of player too low?

Villain was laying 96/19/14,5
In villains shoes:
Leading 1/3 pot is probably more standard here.
But our range do hit this board also quite often. So we should stab here also quite freq., maybe not that big though. With his line he will get something from our air, too. So x/c could be a good line for villain with his actual hand. Because we did commit our self on the flop, x-r seems to be more optimal for villain with this particular hand.
