Hand 192:

Standard play by you really.
All you have in the pot is the posted BB.
When he min bets the turn, there is no way you can flat with your hand and peel the river...any hit by you would not be "enough" to warrant the risk of either leading for a bet, or calling a big bet by him due to the threat he may have checked an Ace.

A lot of people "panic" on a short stakc here, and do something dumb out of desperation.

good on you for not doing that, even though you have only 11BB and change.

Hand 193:

Again, pretty standard.

KQ is a pretty good hand heads up, but your stack size has almost no post flop play in it.
Since you'll miss 2/3rds of the time, any raise you'd make pre-flop could easily see you committed with nothing but K hi.
That could spell disaster for you if your opponent binked even bottom pair.

nice job making your stand on a hand like this, as picking up jsut the blinds at this point is pretty good for you.

Hand 194:

Standard again.

Same as hand 192.

Again, nice discipline in not over-committing oop.

Hand 195:

This is a lot riskier for you than the jam on KQ earlier.
Still, your opponent would see the match go from a big advantage to HIM to almost dead even if he calls and loses.
This alone will tend to tighten his range significantly, thus meaning you are going to get quite few BETTER hands than your cheese holding to fold.
It is a tru-ism of heads up paly that the shorter stack benefits more form palying big pots, and by jamming you;ve ensured a big pot...he cannot risk doubling you without a very solid hand.

This is a high risk play, but your stack is definately short enough that there are worse things you could do.
Nicely read.

Hand 196:

Same as 195...

The thing about doing this a 2nd time though is that you are now WIDENING his call range.
This is good for you, as if you catch the right hand pretty soon after this jam, you may well get the much needed double up BECAUSE he will think you are jamming wide.

You still need chips about as much as you did when you jammed before, so this is actually not bad to try, as long as you are careful not to go to the well too often...

Next Hand:

You've chipped up a little bit, and have caught JJ.

This is EXACTLY the sort of hand you are hoping you can bang his head with as a result of your earlier jams.

Nicely done.


Hand 214:

He walks you on a 6.5BB stack.

Yuck.

Good for you though...

Hand 215:

You have the lead now.

You do not want to chip him back up, so dumping total cheese like 94o is definately not a bad thing for you to do at all.

Giving him 300 is far better than flopping top pair to your 9, and being out kicked afterall.

nice job.

Hand 216:

Tricky decision for you actually...

He has raised less than his entire stack, so this is pretty committing for him.

You certainly could have folded under the threat he may only make that small bet absolutely BEGGING for a call (with a hand he is desperate to get action with, like AA/KK/QQ), but the fact you;d only double him back to 11BB does give you some room to make a "mistake" with your Ace (if that was the case).

As it turned out, your opponent was pretty silly to bet like that on a weak K, and you at least recognized you were in a jam or fold situation and acted accordingly.

I'll be honest, had he jammed you, A4 may have had too much of a chance to be domintated for you to really want to call him, so the opponent really made a bad mistake. You made a measured gamble of potentially seeing BIG HAND and doubling him, versus snapping off his "mistake".
If he would have doubled to 10k+, I think you would have been a bit out of line to call with A4 (since you can easily find a better spot), but since he would have doubled somewhat small, Your decision was perfectly ok.

Nice job.

And for the entire sequence...very well done!

thanks and i agree with alot u say and i noticed at begining of the heads up just before them hands he was wanting to play small bets not the shove game so I knew then play with total agression and he would give alot of chips away because he was so scared of doubling me up where if I called his min bets he would have bluffed me off them with his big stack that was not the game I was willing to let him play so played with such agression that hopefully he would fold fold then loose the plot and actually call when I actually had a good hand wich is exactly what happend with the jacks because I had shoved nearly every other hand he put me on nothing amazing and that was the fatal mistake that cost him and it worked to my advantage taking that road the last hand the ace 4 I chose to do that because knew he was desperate for chips and on tilt after he got caught with the jacks so thought he might not have much and ace 4 isent worst hands heads up worst scenario would been he had ace higher kicker and doubled him up but was a risk I was willing to take and paid off..and thank u for your comments
