Thanks for your comments.
I have tended not to see folks at NL2z shove top pair, but this thought did cross my mind.
I have also seen people take this line with 77, which vaguely crossed my mind.
My decision was indeed predicated on villain never shoving TP, but maybe this is naive.
Edit: I will try to include Reg/Rec info next time (im slowly building up my DB)

My current thought is to call the 3bet and avoid and awkward all in, it’s a really interesting discussion though. I had a guy shove with JJ earlier, quite odd.
Really appreciate the comments all.

Thanks for the reply.
Okay, so rethink the 4bet. It’s a weird adjustment to think of AKs... always learned of them as a good spot to get your stack in.
So just call the 3bet and see how the board develops?
I assume KK and AA are good to 4bet?
I’m AFK atm, will check equilab later
Thanks again for your thoughts

Ah okay, thought 3-4 times was good... And then you fold to the shove?

Interesting, I remember I put him on QQs in game and still called. Feels like QQ+ are the only ‘shovable’ hands if I’m not shoving AKs? I’ll check the equity later, but it’s kind of interesting... as for reads, I’m judging just based on the NL2z pool. More thinking to do about this I suppose. Sounds like this could be a fold though.

Thanks for your thoughts everyone, I really appreciate the replies.
So, I think I understand how the flop favors BN, they have more suited connector type hands - right?
The thing about stack sizes is interesting / unknown to me. I can see that you both suggest checking, but my rational is to bet for value (get him to call his draws and single pairs). How is does this change from being a value bet to a check because of stack size? I guess it's related to Lemmings second comment - just trying to get my head round it.

Yes definitely. I’ve been tying to get to showdown less lately, as my blue line has been quite bad (too wide to 3bets, cbets etc).
I’ve been doing okay, then losing big pots where villain bets big on river and I call him off (sometimes big all ins). I find it hard to not feel like a ‘push over’

Thanks Bradley for this video, it was a really interesting watch and something I definitely want to try and implement. I notice that I am definitely more results based at the moment (I focus a lot on my bb/100).
I'm a new player trying to beat micro stakes at the moment. You mentioned briefly some software tools for the mental side of the game, I was wondering what those might be? One of my big issues is that - for some reason - I slip back into playing 'by feel', forgetting all the things I am learning.
Anyway, thanks again for the video, great stuff!! :)

As a fairly new member and micro stakes novice, I would love some content geared toward foundational mistakes - especially post flop. GTO stuff is really interesting, but doesn't seem very applicable at micro.
Perhaps some proview videos at Nl2, where Hero makes some quite large mistakes.

Thank you for your reply, I really appreciate the advise.
I do find it hard, I think, to accept a re-raise as 'genuine' on this kind of dry board.
Also, you say in a limped pot. How might this kind of situation differ if the BN raised here?

Thanks you for your detailed reply, I really appreciate it.
I get the feeling that a good amount of the videos on RIO are a little higher than my skill level and stakes - so it's great to have some other thoughts. They are also quite GTO focused it seems.
I guess I find it hard to find the fold button sometimes, especially with TPTK on dry boards...
It's also interesting when you say: "what your hand wants", this is not a way of thinking I am used to... what does it want?

Hi Erdis, thanks for the reply.
I mostly got GTO+ out of interest, I am definitely still trying to master the core theory first (as you can see!).
It's really interesting, I must just over-value AQ in general, especially suited. I guess I bet thinking he would fold 77-99 and maybe ATo type hands and some lower suited connectors.
I will look to slow down a little with AQs v EP raisers from now :)
