your Buddy wanted to check-raise, check-call...or check-fold?

If he has a lot of AJ AQ TT JJ QQ in his 3bet range that he check on this flop, it might be a good thing to check AA here to protect the checking range. Still vilain got to be the kind of vilain that attack missed cbet and you need to be skilled enough to not get exploit on the turn and river when he check nack to be a real HERO!

The comment : «I'm gonna try again!» when you openned the QJo just after folding de K9s to a 3bet got me laughing quite a

I'm trying this. Being so far from nl1k...there is a good chance of me being out of track.

Shove the turn w/ that T8!...he got no 33/55/AK/KK/AA, we block TT and he fold all JJ/QQ/ Kx except KcXc and if he call random KQ/KJ we are in good shape still. He might even call some mighty Ax flush draw no pair like the one vilain had...and it feel puky to catch an heart and play river when he is on some AQh/AJh/QJh kind of a noway out trap....who knows.

I heard somewhere that shoving turn on 2 possible flush draw and mixed str8 draw + big card was an old school move back from 2008 nosebleed action but I do think it can be worth something to apply it in some spots.

figure when to never open-fold pre flop... when to 3bet a ton pre flop... when to steal weak blind...when you need more then pot odd cause of ICM...when you need to balance (frequent spot like cbet on KXXr board) and when you don't need yo balance (flopping a set 88 on 8dTd6c in a 4 way pot)...and a lot more

...So a stetch of flip loosing has cause you to question your game....that's kind of what you again and correct me if I'm wrong. So in the way you present the actual probleme I consider the best solution to keep on playin more and some how win your share of flip.

This is not really optimizable, designed personnalised bet size will always be more optimal IMO.

When you bet a certain % of the pot you give your opponent different odds to call with his range so...

Let's say you want to give Vilain 20% pot odd on his call you would have to bet 33% of the pot. If you want vilain to have 50% pot odd on his call you would have to bet the infinite.

Personally I want to have bet size that gonna give me known fold equity so I can bet according to my range distribution and what I'm trying to accomplish with that range.

If you want to have:

20% F.E you need to size a 25% PSB, giving your opponent 17% odds on his call

25% F.E you need to size a 33% PSB, giving your opponent 20% odds on his call

33% F.E you need to size a 50% PSB, giving your opponent 25% odds on his call

50% F.E you need to size a 100% PSB, giving your opponent 33% odds on his call

66% F.E you need to size a 200% PSB, giving your opponent 40% odds on his call

In MTT you have to balance your bet size decision between chip conservation and bet size effiency in relation with what you try to accomplish in the hand at a given point of the tourney. ICM is often a factor in the late stage.

You wouldn't allow yourself to play the hand the way they did if the spot where inversed and they got reward for something you wouldn't do so you get tilted by the idea of never being in their spot where they find a miracle suck out. All of this because you use a different game that you judge to be generaly better than your oppoent. But in that game you don't have the move they have AND you are convicted that if you would try the same line they used you would get your tilt come from finding no succes issue in these spot cuz in your mind you put yourself in you own shoe and got beat, but if you put yourself in vilain shoes you would have lost too from not playing the hand the whey they did....but all of this is just SHORT THERM.
