Hello Guys, I am pretty new to Online Poker and Haven't got a lot of experience yet.

I enjoy playing 2nl cash games. I just had a hand and i wonder if i played it the best.

I had no reads on him, and i was scared to scare him to fold and didn't put all my chips in the middle..




I watched all the 2nl related videos in here and would love to get more information and more helpful topics and video that can help me improve in this =)

Pity we did not see his hand there at the end. I am surprised he even called the river bet from you when the board paired so I am assuming he had a set of 5s or 8s.

I think you played it really well on a scary board. Attend some of Felix's training on 6 max which will be of some help definitely, 19Honu62 does training on 2NL from time to time, and if you go through all the Langolier's live training videos here:

You should have more than enough to give you all the tools to be a winning player at 2NL.

Cheers,

TC

I liked the way you played it too.

TC, agree with part of you in that the opp could have had 55 or 88, but I'd add the A high flush to their range too.

Why the min 3-bet on the turn? It looks super strong and hardly gets any money into the pot. Yes, you're giving your opponent un-foldable odds, but you're getting almost no value from it. If you want to do that sort of thing, try doubling the last bet rather than click-raising. It still looks super strong, it still gives him unbeatable odds, but it gets you an extra 20¢ immediately. Also, building the pot for your river shove as it makes the pot 40¢ bigger. I'd 3-bet the turn to about $1 and shove the river. If you're afraid of making him fold his bluffs, then try checking and calling to look weak. Don't make a pointlessly small value 3-bet.

+1 The min raises are a tell of a really strong hand and give you little value. Just make the bigger raises, even as played shove the river. The guy clearly has at least a straight, if not a flush or smaller full house. Shove the river all day long, they will not fold a flush or FH if you put a gun to their head at 2nl.
