-I will not coach/mentor/whatever you <
I wish I learnt to have that attitude towards world around me 20 y ago!
Quido If anything, id say there is great coaching right in that sentence
When you define things around you , world becomes much more clear and clean place with no unnecessary noise and disturbances which usually comes with a lot of mess people tend to make, hence you have time to have crystal clear thought processes that will unable you to be not only successful but also a happy person with a lot of time !!!! for people and things that actually matter :-)
And to be fair, it is very nice , dream job offer for poker enthusiast or struggling break even player since pay is good, so give it a little bit of ahem :P *positivity

Sorry, my bad, just glanced at the hand :-)
Number of boats outnumber the hands that can pay you off, like trip 6 if we assume that he wont call with worse. For that deep stack, i would be conservative and check back.

Check back, ;-), draws missed and you are losing to part of his value range that hit.
Bet has little purpose in that spot IMO, might be wrong tho.
Seems he capped on previous street to no str8, hence bet wont take him off a split str8 , he will fold missed draws, and you might end value cutting yourself.
If it doesn't make you puke, you can bet small to get payed by trips , and sigh if you get jammed on.

Loading is quiet problematic here as well. Phil's update about RIO poker is not opening and keeps loading, 2-3 days now, but occasionally works.
Page just says loading and stays there.
Once in a while ( like twice a day) it loads up.
Must be the reason while people are not chiming in more on there with comments and opinions , can look into that , looks like when site was redesigned and had that problem.

Lovely to see updates, and I wanted to chime in a little as well, after reading how you came to decide the case vs or against use of HUDS.
The gap between pro's and recreational players have increased in past years quite a bit, which I who came to RIO as recreational can testify to. Few years back, I came , and I was googling words that were used on forum, range, blockers c bet etc but i was able after few months to catch up a little, and over time somewhat decently. If that day for me to join RIO was today, i think i wouldnt stand a chance, with AI, PIO, node locking, bots etc and everything that is going on these days.
In that light, can be said that decision against HUD use is well thought and in place, no one wants to feel hunted down without a fighting chance.

It would be useful that you can see the hand not as exact hand as such but more of like sum of hands you might have, and how does villain think about situation.
Assuming hand was 4b preflop to get to low SPR 1, villains equity on the flop against exactly a random AA (which makes up wast majority of your 4B range) his hand is 34 % ish, so he/she can get it in without losing EV .
Also. even villain had make spewy stack off, you would be happy to see it, since that is where your money will come from in PLO.

edit * b) villain has a pair + a gutter + 2 overcards with an SPR of 1, stacking off is completely standard

I was following up quiet a few posts on 2+2 and elsewhere , and one forwarded question if declared income and asked if its taxable, answer was yes from tax office, but there has been a court case and winnings are not taxable was - decided by court, sooo no taxes but you can take a lawyer or ask a friend just to clarify little details .

Austria - doesnt tax poker income at all :-) so you can move there freely to have legal income from poker playing.
Other issue to take into consideration though is retirement plans and health insurance , which is the reason why we pay taxes first place, hence, even tho you are 25 you should take more then a year into perspective :)
PS - You declare poker winning, not income ! ( phrasing matters maybe)

All elements of greek drama / tragedy present in here :) so cant fault a guy for rereading it, i think there is a name for it:
Catharsis (from Greek κάθαρσις katharsis meaning "purification" or "cleansing") is the purification and purgation of emotions—particularly pity and fear—through art or any extreme change in emotion that results in renewal and restoration. It is a metaphor originally used by Aristotle in the Poetics, comparing the effects of tragedy on the mind of a spectator to the effect of a cathartic on the body.
Amusement , as bad as it is, is still amusement, :-) but yes lets show some restraint, and bury this one in past and let the new times and winds come :) for all, Jonna102 hopefully too.
Spring time :D!

Ill try , ;-)
On Turn, Pio would often use hand with less value as bluffs , that has more to gain from fold equity, and 9c is such. Qc has more value as value bet on rvr, where 9c you would check back even if you out 4th flush card, hence hand with bet on turn that gains most is 9c - fold equity plus occasional extra value when we out , and win.
Additionally, if you face XR , you wont care much if you fold 9c, but would be rather sad with Qc, and 10 % matters, ^^ in long run .
