Would appreciate any comments on how I pl;ayed this.

10h Jd in the HJ, MP bets 3xBB I call, SB and BB fold so 2 way to flop.

Flop comes Jh 5d Js, giving me a set.
Villian bets 1/2 pot so I just flat call him as I couldn't range him.

Turn comes 10s giving me a full house and adding a flush draw to the board. Villian again bet out with half pot, as I was now holding the nuts I just flat called again not sure if he had hit anything or was on a bluff so decided to let him keep leading and hope he would lead out with a bluff on the river.

River came Ah again villian led out for 1/2 pot, decided to shove even though I was unlikely to get a call, my thoughts were he would be unlikely to commit his stack unless he was holding a jack and also knowing that the only hand that had me beat was AJ. and a call was 1/3rd of my stack anyway.

Would appreciate comments on how I played this one, I think for a change this is one I played well but will wait for the experts comments.

I have to confess I can't for the life of me explain why he would bet his stack off with this hand, until the river he wasn't beating anything that matched the board and his only chance of improving his hand was Ace's but it helped me so can't complain.

Hi Webbo62!

In this type of tourney early, this is an easy muck preflop. JT is nowhere near strong enough to be calling raises with this early. If it folded to me I'd open it, but I'm not calling a raise.

On the flop, you do not have a set. A set is when you have a pocket pair and hit another one on the board (means nobody else can have 3 of a kind). Here, you hit trip J (and someone could also have it with a better kicker).

Postflop, you played it well, but it's too loose to be calling a raise with preflop.

Maybe I should have added that villian_6 had been playing most hands not sure how loose he was though as most hands he had picked up on the flop..

I'm still folding.

When playing against a maniac, I only want to go in against them with made hands, not marginal ones.

Trouble is I find if I only wait for premium hands I never play an hand and if I do they have me down as a NIT and I get no callers so sometimes I just want to mix it up so they can't always put me precisely on a hand or range. Is that really bad play?

I know I have tried waiting for playable hands and some days they just never come and sitting there folding for 40 consecutive hands seems to also be a massive leak. But I don't have the experience of you guys hence the reason I keep sticking my hands up here, always pick hands that have questionable actions in them though. Honestly I do play some hands well I will have to dig some out so you don't think I am a really bad player.

Patience is a HUGE key in playing poker. When I get a run of cards that are marginal or worse, as long as I have enough chips that I don't have to open-shove.. fold, fold, fold and wait for a better hand or a better spot.

It's not uncommon to go orbits on top of orbits without playing hands. In one live tournament that I played a few years ago, I went SIX hours straight where the only 3 hands I played were a steal from the button and two free from the BB.

I played a tourney three days ago, where I didn't play a single hand the first 50 of an MTT, then played one, then went about another 20 before I played another... end result, BINK! When I got to the final table, due to being so card dead, I was playing a whopping 8/6 (I'm normally around 20/16).

Trying to force marginal hands, just to play one, is a bigtime spew that I need to avoid when playing.
