Controlling our mindset at the table
As far as playing poker goes, you may not be making the incorrect decisions sometimes, but the reasons you are doing them could be. You shouldn't get into a pissing contest with someone because that means you are letting him get into your head and your ego is affecting your game. My advice is get to know yourself better and you will get better in your game. Do some yoga. Yoga is great for learning how your mind works and how it deals with adversity. A good saying I heard my teacher say is "How you do anything is how you do everything.", and it's true. If you take a look at things from a ...

Hand History Vital Issue
Are you staking someone and you're requesting it from them but you're worried about them doctoring the hh' Or are you requesting a hh from a site and you're worried that they are doctoring it' I don't really understand your dilemma here. If you are requesting a hh from a friend or horse then no, I don't believe there is anyway to tell that it hasn't been altered. You could have them request the last 10,000 hands and have them send you that as well, but they could also just change that.

4 Bet pot, against a villain who seems to have somewhat of a vandetta against me
Sorry, yeah I was going to say something. I haven't read your long post above mine here, but what I was going to say, if you 4b pre, I don't know if shoving the flop accomplishes anything. On an A72 flop, he either hit it or missed it. It does depend what our hand is if we want a call or not, but I think it's safe to bet very very small because you can do this as a bluff or for value.

Advice please
Nothing you can really do about this hand. It doesn't sound like you were overly aggressive, I would say if you had 2x average stack and busted in a marginal spot then possibly but this hand is not a leak or mistake.

Barrel the turn or check behind?
I prefer to 3b 79dd because we fold out hands like A9, K9, Q9, J9, T9, 89, hands that dominate us, and it puts us in a better position to win the pot with a hand that isn't bad but isn't great. With him opening the HJ he's most likely going to have a wide range, and if he flats too wide, then we can make money from him when he check folds too often. If he opens a wide range and folds to 3b often then it's also very +EV. I would prefer to flat a range like [99-22,AQs-A7s,KTs+,QTs+,JTs,T9s,98s,87s] 3b something like this [JJ+,AKs,A6s-A2s,J9s,T8s,97s,A9o+,KTo+,QTo+,JTo] This is very general ...

Laddering up with ICM decisions
Yeah I agree that shoving is better than r/c. I think in most situations where ICM is significant, like this one, just open shoving is going to be far better in the long run than r/c. You already know that he's going to shove on you close to 100% of the time based on how you described him and how he was playing. For simplicity, let's say that these are the payouts: $40 $30 $20 $10 We'll give him a 90% range to be conservative. VS that range we have 63% equity. So 63% of the time, we will win the pot and have a ~14k stack and have about $33 equity for the next hand. (14000, 8000, 2626, 2800 ...

Barrel the turn or check behind?
I prefer to 3bet preflop. A suited one gapper is an ok hand, but I think it plays better with a 3b. It's a decent hand to balance your range with (although balance often doesn't matter in mtts) but it's below what I would want to call with. As for the rest of the hand, I can see reasons for betting the turn and reasons for checking. By betting you might get him to fold A8 or something, but I think 89 still calls. I dunno if you get a jack to fold. By checking you may fool a hand like 55 into thinking he has the best hand, but I don't think you can realistically bet 3rd pair (sometimes 4th ...

Was this a bad call out of big blind?
Most people might shove around 45% here, taking out QQ+, and against that range you have about 50% equity. Off the top of my head, it looks like you need about 45% to break even here (getting 1.2:1). Giving him a fairly tight range for a reg of 36% (JJ-22,A2s+,K2s+,Q8s+,J8s+,T8s+,98s,A2o+,K8o+,Q8o+,J9o+,T9o) we have 46.6% equity so if there's no ICM considerations then it's a call because even the top of that range they most likely aren't just open shoving. If he isn't a reg, we have to figure out what type of player he is and what we think he's shoving. I think vs most players this is a ...

best hand you've ever seen (maybe...)
how many left are we on any sort of money bubble' Pretty sure I'm getting it in here even though I don't like it a whole lot. With all the stacks so short, ranges are a little wider so I'd go with it and hope they all have AK.

Agonising spot with AQ suited
Yeah I don't see flatting as an option, and I also don't like shoving in 30bb vs an UTG 3x pre ante. Unless UTG has been active and I feel he folds often am I shoving here. Most of the time I am folding in a sng pretty easily here.

Tips for relocating into Canada without having issues
Good luck to you. I will tell you that when I tried to go through the Ontario border at Niagara falls she denied me entry and it was a whole ordeal. I had gone up through Quebec multiple times with no problems, and even told them I was going to play poker every time. You may run into the same problem if you have no job, because then poker is your job and depending on how the border agent sees that, they can refuse or let you in. As for money, 6 months is a long time to say you'll be living there with no income and it's also the maximum amount of time you're allowed to stay there without a ...

Too tricky with Aces?
I think your play is fine, and actually I would just flat the flop. There isn't anything you are really worried about the bb having, so you want him to float with overcards or some random hand like that. A flush draw is a very very small portion of his range, and he's only gonna have one about 3% of the time. Overall I think you played the hand just about as best as you could.

lol spot with second nuts facing 3 all ins in the 3r
lol, this is a pretty sick spot, but I think you can actually argue folding here. Medved power probably has a set, and I think it's definitely possible for lovemica or seba to have KJ or a set. There are 12 possible KJ combos, 3 combos of TT, 99, 22 each, and I guess mica can have QQ here. So 12 combos you are basically dead to and 12 combos that you beat. I think I'm folding here, because with 3 ppl shoving the turn for that many chips, I would just expect to see KJ from seba or mica. It does make it really tough that the button is a mega fish, and that may lean me toward calling, as I ...

KK, fold river
I think you should definitely be c-betting this flop. Any pocket pairs are going to call you, and you are correct when you say that with two aces on the flop it is unlikely they have one. After they both check the turn as well, you should cbet here. I think going for two streets of value in this hand is where I'd be comfortable. As for his range I doubt he's calling A7o preflop. It really depends what buyin level this tournament is to narrow down a range, but I think his range is suited broadways. With 26bb I would expect him to be 3bet calling with hands like AQ+, 99+ so I think his range ...

AA first hand live tourney, did I play it right?
If you have the Ac then I call, but if not folding sounds good. I don't see any hand that you beat that he donk bets the turn that much. In general I would be making it closer to 250 preflop as I think he will call being this deep.

I have TPTK and get raised on flop
You should definitely be betting smaller on this flop. K84 is super dry, the only draw is a flush draw, which makes up about 2 or 3% of his range. The problem with betting so much is that you are rarely going to get played back at. As played you should definitely be getting it in.

KJs in BB 12bb deep
Yeah I would be shoving here. You do get some hands to stay in that you have dominated by calling, but you do have fold equity, even though it is small, I think realizing that fold equity is more valuable than getting those JTo hands to stay in after the flop. I'm shoving pre.

do we check back the flop with top set ?
No I would not be checking back top set here. You have a stack size that you want to get in by the river and you can easily do that, you just need to decide on the correct bet sizes to accomplish that. The board is decently wet, but you also block two of the aces, so I think I might go a tad smaller with the flop bet but it's debatable. I definitely don't like checking back here though, unless he is known to hammer when you do. Some players will just fire very aggressively when you check back so you want to make a note on them, but I think he's almost never donking into you here, and will ...

AQo in BB. 18bb eff vs EP & 2 flat. Good spot 2 "get tricky?"
I don't see any other play than jamming here, with the LAG player in EP opening, and the two flats there's like 45k in the pot and you have $100k. You absolutely have fold equity, and you will definitely be ok shoving here profitably.

What will be 2015's 'latest craze' in MTT play?
This is a really interesting thread, and thanks for posting it. I think open limping is definitely a strategy that has not been fully explored. You could absolutely be right about someone figuring that out, but I think there is just so many in depth scenarios for that strategy to become effective I think it will take someone a LOT of work and testing. I know this is already pretty common, but I think small 3 bets in position will increase. I'm talking really small like min raise open, then a 3.5-4bb 3b. It's not that huge of a change but I think it's a strategy that is really interesting and ...

AJ with trips on the turn, but are we still good by the river?
I'm calling the river, but why are we checking the turn' This is a good card for us as most of his range that calls the flop will call again on the turn. I think we are missing value on the turn by checking, and if he does have us beat on the river then oh well.

turn set of 8s , facing river raise ..
I think calling is pretty much the only play here. Folding is terrible because the raise size looks like it can be with worse hands looking for thin value, and when you raise he should be folding any hands that you beat. I think I'm pretty much always just calling this river.

Please review this play
Well, there aren't really any draws that he can have on the flop so unless he's floating you with air I'm just folding this everytime on the river. Your flop cbet is pretty large, but other than that I really don't mind your play up to that point. Double barreling on this board will get him to fold some overcards he floats with and small pocket pairs, but the 3 card straight on the board might entice him to call with 77, 88, 33, so a turn like the Jx would be much better to fire. Overall I think firing a third barrel on the river is definitely less profitable than just check folding as I ...

Should I call?
I think calling pre is fine. Versus a button raise our hand is definitely strong, and I would rather flat than 3b and put myself in a spot where I'd fold rather than 5b. We're going to dominate a lot of his hands by flatting, and 3b'ing will allow him to fold all those dominated hands. Our equity isn't extremely high vs his range, but with the pot odds you can defend here with like 50%. On the flop I think I just check/call. I expect him to bet almost every flop when checked to especially this one, and I expect him to fold a lot of the time when we raise. Versus an aggressive opponent I ...

Whats your river play here?
Why are we calling pre' Just fold. As played fold the flop or turn. We have maybe 6 outs, and we don't even know if it's good. Not sure why you decided to flat pre but chasing inferior draws isn't good either. If we are in the BB then I can see a flat, but out of the SB I don't think it's going to be profitable.

wow....im sick...JJ UTG 28 left
definitely not folding here. With 28 left there's not much ICM factor because the pay jumps aren't that serious until the final table. With him shoving 25bb, it's a tighter range but I'm sure JJ is still ahead of that range. Not really a sigh call, you should be fairly happy about calling here.

advice on this hand please
First hand is a fold on the river. He can semi bluff on the turn with heart draws I guess although I dunno that they do that at these stakes when bet into so you can even argue folding the turn, but fold the river for sure. Second hand is a fold for sure. You should be suspect when he check calls the flop then leads into you and gets it in. Fold to his 3b on the turn as I don't see him doing this with a draw or a made hand less than middle two pair. Oh and btw, leave out the results when you post hand histories, it generates much better discussion overall. You can post the results later in ...
