Would you ever fold here?
Sick. I hate poker. I probably fold and leave the room until the hand's over.

Any chance I didn't play this terribly?
Checking the turn just gave him an opportunity to bluff. Checking the river gave him an opportunity to bluff big. I think AK repops it preflop and AT/AQ repops the flop. Unlikely the 2nd 7 helped him. Why did you shut down the turn'

Laid Down AA on the turn
That it was "only $125" more would make me want to call so bad, but I'd probably let it go too. That's a sick draw heavy board and I wouldn't put it past a tilty player to show up here with a monster.

Didi I Make the Right Call? Small Stakes Laydown
No real reason to repop it preflop. You've got a sneaky hand you'd like to see a flop with. No real reason to raise the flop. It's great for you and you know dude's got a pretty good hand. Keep it small in case you miss. On the turn, I'm not going anywhere, as you can feasibly add any 4 and any A to nine flush cards to make your hand. It's a good bet on his part, but good luck getting me to fold with 14 outs. I'm not very good at knowing percentages to hit, something I should work on. I think he's got the T or even JJ - KK. Does he have a habit of raising ...

Standard to go Broke W/ AA here ?
Nah man, it's AA. You're not the first and you won't be the last. I couldn't put him on air or a semibluff unless I've been watching him play and know he's capable of that. Your Q hand speculations are certainly all possibilities.

Standard to go Broke W/ AA here ?
Probably always gonna go broke here. His raise to only 1500 looks like a raise for value though, so I might start considering a set (not of queens though, based on the preflop action). But if you slow down and just call there and check to him on the river, he's putting it all in. The 7 might've saved you money. Tough spot.

mehhhhhh a wierd hand tell i probably shoulda jammed the turn! prolly coulda gotten him to fold!
Unless you have a read on him, I'd like a raise on the flop. He led really weak. I think you bump it there you take it down, just based on his bet size. You've got a weird stack-size, so you couldn't raise w/o just pushing. I don't like the call on the turn at all. Are you still set-mining' Either fold or push. You're pissing a way a stack that wasn't very healthy to begin with.

Need advice PLZ!!!! How would you have played this hand??? What should I change???
I used to complain about this too, until I realized that some of your biggest wins are going to come from people who marry themselves to any ace and can't fold no matter how draw-heavy the board or if you're leading into them every street.

AQ SB WHat is Villains range?
Your all-in on the turn says nothing of a missed hand. It's saying, "I have a hand, if you want to pay to draw out, pay." In this case, you were up against a monster chip stack who didn't mind gambling. He had 13 outs to hit and the $$ to gamble with. The only other way you could've played this is KNOWING he's likely to call your all in since it's a drop in the bucket with his huge stack, so you check to play it safe to see if the straight or flush materializes on the river. But you don't want that. You want to capitalize on having the best hand and having ...

QQ in SB...
Did he show' If he didn't, there's still a chance you made a good fold. If I figured it right, you were sitting on 5200 when you checked the turn. Pot was around 1750. I think you could throw 900 at it to see what he does and still fold if he goes over the top. If he just calls, I'm pretty sure you've got him and I would lead again on the river. Betting 900 after you led and got popped on the flop looks super strong too, so, if you do decide to check the river, you may get him to check behind.

QQ in SB...
I would've bet the turn to see if he's willing to come over the top again. This is one of the rare places I'll bet to "see where I'm at." If he repops my lead twice, I'm letting it go. Checking to him gives him a chance to bluff cheap. As played, I'd probably shut down here. I don't know though. I still think you're ahead. This is also where knowing your enemy could be beneficial. If he's stolen a lot of passive pots, this could very well be a semibluff.

AQ SB WHat is Villains range?
I'm thinking flush or straight draw. I think even a weak A or a set raises there to see where he's at. In any case, you've got to bet the turn to prevent a check/check for a free river card that could cost you.

QQ in SB...
Rule out AA, KK, and very probably AK, as he didn't repop it preflop to knock out some limpers. My guess is he isn't raising here with a made flush or the nut redraw. I would call the raise and slow down for pot control, but I think you're still way ahead on the flop and if another spade drops, I think you're golden.

Don't sell yourself short. 200/8350 is a helluva run. I love this site. If you're willing to listen and look at your plays objectively, there's a boatload of quality, (and free!) advice on here.

Just a dry Run or am I running scared?
Hand 1: Consider how early it is and how massive his overbet is. Say you call and hit nothing and he fires again. Now what' There'll be way more opportunities to pick up chips as the game progresses. AJ and AT often turn into trap hands. Without a fairly good read on the raiser, like, "Could I take this down with a big bluff if I miss'" I'm letting this one go pre. Hand 2: You're calling another fairly hefty raise, presumably to set-mine. You might also consider bluffing if it's checked to you. He could have a PP, he could have a Q and is betting big to LOOK scared ...

Anyone else getting it in here?
Not as played and with the action around you. With only 2 limpers and the BB to worry about, I might've raised preflop in your spot to try to win it there. Although, had you done that and got action, you have to go with it on that flop.

Can I play QQ any differently here? Fold pre?
Never fold here. Villain is looking for anything to push with at this point. Any A, maybe even a decent K, any pp. You're way ahead of his range with QQ almost all of the time, and even here. UL. Move on.

AK late stages FTOPS main
Stronger than KQ but I have no idea where. Maybe JJ-KK. Maybe 88, 99. I like overbetting a big had like a set here too if I think I can get paid.

How can I play these hands better? 50 NL
Hand 1: Tough spot made easier if you have any reads on your opponent. Most importantly, what's his 3-bet range and what hands might he smooth call your final preflop raise with' I'm not sure what you put him on that you thought pushing the flop was a good move. Yes you have $16 invested and only $35 behind, but you don't have to go broke here. The preflop action dictates your best case scenario is he has JJ. Every other scenario I can think of in this spot is AK, KK, or AA. Unless you've seen him get aggressive and call big raises with TT or less, AQ, AJ. If you haven't, ...

unlucky or should i have raised more pre?
This early, with no reads on UTG opener, either fold or call and proceed cautiously. You've got position but that's really all you've got with your hand against an unknown who is opening UTG and another unknown in MP who is calling the UTG raise. I don't like the reraise preflop (grossly overplayed), but once that happens and you see the J-high board, you're going broke.

Does the first page of my new book have enough hook?
I prefer fewer adjectives as well. Too many adjectives can be overkill. Try to find that fine line between honest description and describing for the sake of describing. Especially since, even with as many adjectives as you have here, it took two reads of the first paragraph for me to figure out the building is a hotel; and I'm still not 100% sure it is. GL to you. I've lost my ambition to write the older I've gotten. The poster that said "write, write, write" is absolutely correct. Doesn't matter what you write, just write. If you come home and don't feel ...

Cooler, unless you have a sick read on nadz. If all the $$ doesn't go in pre, you're not really going anywhere on that flop.

UTG raises, UTG+1 calls , I have AQ now
Agreed. Flatting here is basically setmining; looking for that magical Q/Q/x or K/J/T flop. With your stack, either push (knowing you will be racing at best and dominated at worst) or fold.

Was wondering if I played this hand correct
With no reads, I'd fold. There's no way of knowing what he flatted flop and turn with. Unless he decided you wouldn't have led the flop with a 10 and thought he could take it away later. Assuming he was on a club draw, I can't imagine he'd think he's good enough for all-in on the double paired board and you leading every street. He's either got huge balls or you're beat.

LOOKING TO TAKE THE LEAP AS A PRO
1. Keep job. Use job money for necessities (rent, food, etc). 2. Crush cash games. Divide these profits into: money for fun stuff, savings, and poker bankroll. 3. Study tournament play. Use some of your roll for small-mid stakes MTTs to try to hit a big score. If you do hit a big score, still keep your day job. This way you always have income to fall back on during those months-long downswings. You'll never be playing on scared money as long as you know you can cover your expenses with day-job money. I can't think of a more ideal situation. Your poker would pay for itself and ...
