congratulations, you proofed how passive play is busting the roll.

stop that check-call **deleted inappropriate language JWK24**, stop that curiosity river calling. work on your positional play and on the understanding of ranges. and tbh. i suggest to move down a limit or two as long as you don´t have plugged that huge leaks.

hand 1
fold pre without a read on players to your left. as played correct line is bet/fold on each street. the small 3bets are "en vogue" recently. they are either small pockets or prems. best it to 4bet/fold small, half pot is fine and profit.

hand 2
no set no bet is a good rule of thump when playing for set value. as you had an overpair to the flop i suggest to raise villains cbet and fold to a reraise. if you get called i would go on with bet/fold.

Hi ad,

In this hand I would be tempted to just fold preflop or to 4 bet his min-3b (and fold to a 5-bet). A9o is very difficult to play well out of position without the initiative. As played when we flop this I think it's preferable to lead out, and would be ok folding to a raise as the villain would rate to have at least an overpair to raise us here, or a big draw, our equity vs. that range is bad and we're still out of position.

As played, I am definitely folding to the turn barrel, I think check-calling down is too optimistic for this hand strength.

In this hand we have no reads but the villain is playing an awkward stack size so probably not a winning player (you could also check to see how many tables he's playing, stop with the no reads business ). Still I think it's prudent to flat his EP open as opposed to 3-betting with 99, flatting is pretty standard here.

I don't really like raising the flop much, as we tend to fold out hands we're beating and only get action from hands beating us, so I tend to call here. I would float in position with some draws and some air as well though so this gives me a nice balanced range (although balance isn't important in 10NL vs. randoms). When the guy fires the 2nd barrel it's ok to fold when readless, and on the 3rd barrel definitely ok to fold... not a lot of players are 3 barrel bluffing AK high here as they have some showdown value. Obviously he could have weaker but without reads opening in EP and barreling 3 streets is typically value, and we don't beat any of that value range.
