Villain is 30/21 over 61 hands, no notes or reads.

On the flop I decided to flat to keep the button in, with the intention of maybe c/r turn but when villain bets pots and being 200bb deep I decided to flat. Is bottom set ever a c/r on any street when villain can have KK/JJ.......what about 100bb deep?

Dont feel bad about dropping 14BI, I dropped 10 today alone!! I wouldve tilted massively a few months ago but kept my head, kept playing my normal game and got most of it back.

I would drop to NL2/NL5, keep watching the videos (Peter and Henry Lister are really good to watch) and dont be scared to try new things. Post hands on here and ask as many questions as you need to, Ive learned so much from the guys that post on here.

Was worried you may have left having not seen any new content from you for a while. You have helped my game massively, cant thank you enough. Im from London so may see you in some live games in the future :)

Do you not take into consideration that this villain has only folded to 6/23 3bets?

You say he shouldn't be calling with 67s/89s pre but notes say he has called with 86s, along with A3-A4s oop, as well as 85s IP

May 4, 2021 | 12:04 a.m.

I bet the turn as there are 2 flush draws and we unblock both, and if he has called with SC there are also straight draws there. My plan was to bet turn and check back river

When he c/c flop I discount any sets, and have his range as 66,77,88,99,TT, JJ some AJ, KQ,AQ,QT some suited connectors). I think his turn c/r is on the small side and would expect a turned set to mostly bet bigger or jam.

My question is with the board being this wet is this still always just a flat on the turn as any heart, spade 3,8 would be pretty bad.

First question....On this flop I have seen similar spots where coaches c/r this type of flop, but what do we rep here other than FD? I never feel comfortable raising FD especially when I dont have range or nut advantage.

Turn I went for that sizing as its a size id probably use when bluffing too, thoughts? Is the flat to the raise ok should we be getting it in?

River I think c/c is probably better but thought it might get checked back a lot. Am I right in thinking the Ad was probably the best card I could hope for?

Villain is 31/31/33 over 13 hands, note tracker has note saying played turn draw aggressively.

Comment | Carlo Moretto commented on Easy Fold?

Is river always a check or should I be blocking? Is this a bet / call ?

That was exactly what I was thinking on flop and turn but was surprised to see they still jammed river. I called and they had what I thought theyd have

Keep making the same mistake of not 3betting bigger when deeper, how much bigger should I have gone. As played, is flop always a flat this deep? How about turn and river?

This is where I struggle......I think if I flat turn I look strong (3bet pre, bet/call flop, c/c turn). As played is this a c/jam turn or call and check river hoping they jam?

I have a question....Should I be worried about balancing at micro stakes? I ask because if I had AhJc, I would barrel turn most of the time but like to check sometimes as played above.

Same goes when I flop a set on dry board as PFR OOP. I will cbet flop but check dry turns. Would you always barrel at micros or would it be villain dependant? Getting stuck in between trying to be somewhat balanced for when (if) I move up stakes whilst also trying to exploit as much as possible.

Also with regards to the hand above, I wouldnt normall cbet this flop 100% but as we are deeper and having a blocker to the nuts, I figured I could bet/call flop......logical or not?

Post | Carlo Moretto posted in NLHE: Finally moved up to NL5

So decided to start off at NL2 this morning, played well and went for a couple of hours at NL5 this evening.

Ran really well, just as many fish / bad regs so all good.

Thanks for your help with the hand histories and watching me play, my game has really come on lately and feel a lot more confident. Im sure variance will kick in soon but I feel better equipped to deal with it, and may even be more aggressive with moving to NL10 if things go well.

Thanks again guys

Copied HH again, should be ok now.

If we bet flop and get raised, whats the plan (Were quite deep too)

April 17, 2021 | 11:51 p.m.

Comment | Carlo Moretto commented on QQ bet river?

As we are so deep are we playing to c/r flop and get it in?

April 17, 2021 | 11:50 p.m.

Would you have called if they had bet turn and river?

April 17, 2021 | 8:50 p.m.

I called and he had AK

Im always worried about getting bluff raised here as my hand looks like AK a lot (not sure NL2 players think I can have TT+ plus here) and Im normally capped at 1 pair.

Would you have called off on this run out?

If you bet river (Im guessing I should be), how much?

April 16, 2021 | 10:16 p.m.

Villain is 19/13 and folds to bet 40% (only have 142 hands). Notes are he has 4bet TT.

I know its only a few hands and I dont know what hand he 4bet TT with (couldve been v fish / short stack) but Im guessing he 4bets QQ+ pre. I have BDFD so easy call. He checks turn so I think check back is standard.

Is river easy call as we block NFD? Spots like this trouble me as although best he can have is KTs, he couldve been bad and called with SC etc which now have me beat. Even 45s now beats me along with any flush.

April 15, 2021 | 9:44 p.m.

I have the bankroll (just under $500) but although I havent tilted for a good while, I would say thats my biggest weakness.

April 12, 2021 | 6:33 p.m.

Thanks for taking the time to watch the videos guys, really appreciate it and also all of the feedback.

Im gojng to go through all of the comments whilst watching the videos and will ask questions later when I get in.

From what youve seen, you think I should move up to NL5?

April 12, 2021 | 3:06 p.m.

Thanks for the reply Ben, happy to hear that although you check flop, you wouldve also called turn and folded river.

Im trying not to cbet so much at the moment but it may be me being paranoid but pool seem to stab / bet turn v missed cbet so much that I struggle to decide what hands are call / call or call / fold.

What would the ideal amount of zoom tables be for recording.....2 or 3?

April 11, 2021 | 12:01 a.m.

Sample size is 213k hands.

I feel Im too passive (only playing NL2 zoom so not sure how much that matters). Want to improve on check raising spots / raising turns / 3 barrel spots etc. Sometimes I feel I bluff catch too much (Call River Eff 1.66......not sure if thats good or bad, as it could indicate that I c/c too much rather than value bet).

I also feel that im slightly too tight (21/18/7)
