interesting hand, with a super wet flop texture. while i do think changing your bet sizing on the flop and turn would have cost you less, recognize this was the dream runout for your opponent, and the absolute worst for you. turn and river go brick brick you win here a lot

Interesting to see this post. I live in Ontario and GG is the only site that got a license with the new laws. i played on GG for the first 5 months of poker and switched to stars like a month ago and started to win exponentially more. Maybe it was run good, i was putting in a lot of work on the game so maybe it was that, maybe it was luck, i don't know but at 5Nl and 10NL stars players were considerably worse than GG.

I do see this quite a bit as well, most of the time i just overfold with marginal hands and 4bet the premium hands. Leaning less towards defending against these players and more to the players who have a better 3betting strat.

This is very interesting, and i think i understand the spreadsheet. You took all the hands that UTG would open and found all the combos (cards collum) and then figured out what percentages make up suited, pocket, unsuited ect. so the boards that hit the high percentage cards for either range, would create the range advantage?
this makes sense and is something that i might set up for other common spots.

Cant reply directly to Shaun but i hope you see this. Would you say that every player pool, level, stake level ect. weaker players or even just players in general will have tendencies? If that was not clear ill give an example (not saying that it is true) "players at 5NL play looser preflop and dont cbet enough" therefore i am going to play tighter than i would at other stakes and make the generalization about the whole pool? is this something that could be an effective strategy?

If by flat calling you are referring to pre-flop, i only play 6max and use 3bet/fold play, if you're talking about flatting bets on the flop as opposed to raising them i can start to see how choosing to play other strong hands as well as flush draws in a similar way to create a mixed strategy to not make it obvious as to what you are holding.
I know virtually nothing about constructing post flop ranges and how they play but seem like the next thing to learn

Mixed strategy is understandable, but when you refer to "constructing ranges", im thinking you mean on flop, turn and river, what exactly does this look like? i understand constructing preflop ranges and building them around position (i didn't make my own i have used charts online) but here it sounds like you refer to the later streets. How exactly does this work? even if you link to a video or something that is fine, sorry if this is a bit of a convoluted question

When you flop a flush draw whats the thought process? (theoretically speaking lets say its a high broadway card A-J and not low card) ive been studying poker math books and videos and according to the math you have 9 outs or 19% equity, if you are faced with a large bet, 3/4 pot, pot, ect. are you simply making the call justified with implied odds or are you only continuing with a 4:1 price or better? I understand board texture and pre flop action changes decisions but overall how do you base your decisions for continuing flush draws? i think im torching money calling flush draws, missing, and folding, especially flopping or turning the nut draw.

To everyone that made it out of the lower stakes, what did the work look like? When you improved your game what were the big areas of focus? was it watching others play? memorizing range charts? time spent alone just thinking about how to play different spots?
Im curious to hear what good, winning players did and how they went about making improvements and learning more poker strategy?
Any response would be insightful.

What level does a HUD become valuable, or become not important?
Is it worth it to spend the money on Pokertracker4 to get one if playing low stakes?
See a lot of people with them and a lot without, just wondering who uses one and if it helped you.
For context, much of Peter Clarke's Grinders Manual places a massive emphasis on HUD stats.

Currently playing low stakes, looking for people who became winning players or a group that wants to talk strategy and review hands with.
All communications, discord, telegram, slack, what have you are fine.
