KQs - Bounty builder 162 facing all in
honestly had 0 info and i don't use hud unfortunately. I think suited its a call and offsuit its a fold because of the bounty equity. we should have at least 40% vs his range but ICM says fold for sure

Big 27 - Late Stages with J10o in the BB
well if he checks back flop he usually didnt connect on average so if you raise the turn on a K798 board and he has pairs like 22,33,44,55 or Ax+ he cant combat your raise so therefore you check call turn and you check raise river allowing him to bluff rivers. The key here is to remember he checked back flop and he has air a high % of the time here. Very rarely will someone be trapping and checking back sets or premium hands because of the board texture.

TPGK & 2nd nut flush draw facing turn shove. Thoughts?
as played, i donk call turn expecting him to show up with alot of AQ AK as well and AJ/QQ+ too best play is obviously reshove flop to protect from ugly turn cards like the one that landed on the turn.

Big 44 - Am I a nit?
AQ off suit think about it based off history. If no reads if you are really desperate to stay in u can fold. AQ suited snap reshove. You are playing for the win not to mincash.

TT on 987 flop, $27 bounty tournament
ok my bad he led bet because hes weak. usually people arent leading a strong range. Its very rare. i exclude 67 because your raise is massive pre and hes out of position. Yeah he could have flushdraws but i bet he check raises those. Jx if your flatting would lead yeah i could see it and yeah some people go for streets of value with made hands but i agree they would check with made hands most of the time. glgl

Big 44 early stage - bad fold?
3bet the original raiser pre. As played you still call this all-in because most of the time he is trying to isolate the shortstack to get 1v1

TT on 987 flop, $27 bounty tournament
flop raise is good. turn raise is bad, check call turn. most hands hes gonna float you on the flop with are going to include JX for the str8 combo connection. expecting him to showdown QJ J9 J8 KJ AJ JX 9Q etc

Three hands from today's session that I wasn't sure about...
yeah im digging the triple barrel idea with the 5 to fold q's. As per the check raise turn its fine cause hes gonna have a ton of pairs and pair + str8 draws which help you shutdown his massive equity + you charge him the proper price to make him draw if he hasnt already flopped it which they usually havent.

Live $300 - 13BBs
with A4s you have to decide preflop either its a fold or a shove. GIVEN that the raise is VS. EP and you still have a ton of action behind you this makes it a clear fold since you start the hand with 13 bbs and not something like 50bbs where you can flat in position. FOLD!

PLO---Nuts on turn....river changes everyhing but less then half pot bet left
well personally id reraise the nuts on the turn too HOWEVER if you see you are constantly running into the nuts by the river then pot control the turns ( which sounds insane ) to see what kind of river falls so you can make easier decisions by the river without the pot being bloated. In all honesty though, I think potting the turn or betting huge with the nuts is smart and its just unlucky that you are getting outdrawn. IMO sounds like you need to drop stakes if its bothering you OR pot control turns like i said and re-evaluate rivers.

sigh
The trick is to keep playing like this with low buy-ins to make sure your volume is high and then boom you hit a score and rinse repeat climb the stakes. everyone goes through this, its apart of the game. VOLUME! + LOW BUY-INS = LESS FEAR = $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Interesting spot in live PLO cash game
I think we can assume someone has JT here a high % of the time or a flushdraw. IMO im probably not folding since we arent too deep however im not thrilled getting in top set here vs all the possible combos and run outs. Honestly i wouldn't mind leading this flop for 50$ to pot control and get information incase anyone raises its pretty obv they have it as i think flushdraws will just flatcall

The Big $22 (PokerStars) - 900/1800 - AQ vs CheckRaise All-in
Seems like he has KK. Doubt I'm folding though. Maybe lack of discipline on my part and I'm not humble enough to fold.

Njaguar aka Shakeeb Kazemipur scammed alert
Shakeeb Kazemipur aka Njaguar has stolen 16400$ canadian dollars from me. Borrowed it from me in December promising to pay it back in a few days and it has now been 2 months and now has turned off his phone and cancelled his Facebook account and isn't manning up to what he owes. Do not lend this guy money or believe his lies. I've sacrificed my own bell being to lend him this money and I understand this is my mistake for putting so much faith into a so called "friend". I'll keep you guys updated.
