He'd 5 outs on that flop although that doesn't make it any better. He only seen his own cards and didn't give your hand a second thought. Bottom line is it's no foldem in these games but it's precisely calls like this that win us money in the long run.

QQ - someone raised you should put in a hard 3bet like 3x the size of his raise 270 with your QQ to prevent the blinds from coming in

still unlucky though but you could have prevented it

TT - good play

AK - good shove but unlucky

TT - you can't blame the bb for calling because the pot odds is irresistible for him and he have chips to gamble

KJ - once again your too short to even have fold equity but KJ is nice hand to gamble with

try to look for open spots when your down to 10bb or less don't wait till you got 5 bb's to gamble because you will not have fold equity anymore

JJ -it's a good reshove all in

55 - if you hit the set, bet immediately even if your first to act bec it's early levels and the board is wet, you want your opp to pay for every draw they got - ul opp have a better set

good luck in your games

GL with this stedds.

Mostly pretty standard beats for these games so far from what I see. Just keep getting it in with the best of it and the results will come.

I always keyed on 2 thoughts when playing these games...

1. "KISS---Keep It Simple,Stupid."

Fancy play,bluffing,etc,;in these games is more often than not a huge leak.

2. Don't try to beat bad players,make the bad players try to beat me.

This being the patience lesson---give a dope enough rope and they'll inevitably end up swinging from a branch more often than not. And they're usually the ones to kick the chair out from under themselves as well.


Just out of curiosity...how many of these are you running at once and/or in a day's grind?

Reason I ask is for you to pull this off ($5 to $100 in 1 month...) at the .25 level...well it's doable yeah,but that's gonna take a BIG sample or some serious run good,or both.

Say you hit a +40% ROI for all the plays for the month. That WOULD be a very good number in all honesty,over a big sample size.

Well +40% ROI in a .25 game translates to making a .10 profit for each game played. So that would mean 950 games played to generate the $95 we're talking here.

Again,DOABLE yes. But it IS a lofty and not easily achieved goal you're shooting for here. IF you come up short and yet show a good result (which from the play you've shown so far I would say is a safe bet at the least) then don't miss the forest (good result) for the trees (shorted the goal).

Good luck,better decisions.

AJ - start the hand 20bb's you can start min raising at 150/300 with same result

ex. if you raise 600 instead of 750 your opp will also just bluff all in, yeah AJ is a good call but in this spot I will fold because my stacks is super healthy and no need to gamble with AJ here

I know you got a read that big blind is just bluffing all in but always think so you want to gamble 20bb's with just AJ - maybe AQ AK I will gamble but AJ against an opp who shows strength in a regular structure.

patience patience and complete patience is the key here

yes, we can say you made the right call but it's a flip and we dont want to put ourselves in this situation when we don't need to. With 20bb's we can afford to wait for a better spot. Pick up chips uncontested rather than going all in vs an opp who covers your stack

that is why at 50/100 i would suggest you to min raise and play your opp post flop. raising to a minimum will collect same result as 2.5x. If they will call they will also call 2.5x so save chips pre flop and play your opp post flop. Let them make mistakes. And get out of the hand as soon as you know your behind.
