What do you think about this spot?
I think it's close but a fold. You should be perceived as fairly tight raising into all those stacks, and his range should be tight with you raising UTG. Unless he is super spewy then I'm raise/folding here. I'd call with AQo+, 99+, and wider against a spewtard.

Not Sure What To do??
Losing $130 in two days means you should be playing about $1 mtts and sngs, no higher. If you were playing any higher than that, believe me when I say you will not get better if you do not first tackle bankroll management. Learn to manage your bankroll now, so that when you build it up to $1k and beyond, you do not end up losing it in two days again. I used to have the exact same problem when I started my professional career... I would win a tournament for $500-$2k, and I would end up losing it in a matter of sessions, because I would play $1-2 cash tables, then move to $3-6 when I lost a ...

What do I do with AK here
Yeah the only play here is jam. With 7 left and only 3 getting paid it's like a 1 table sng. I can't ever imagine folding AK here. You need to realize how strong AK is, and what you should try to do is find the bottom of your jamming range, which will make it easier for future situations like this. I'd say something like 99+, AQs+.

Another tough river spot
Hm. It's a really weird line and I usually don't play cash so I'm not sure what to range a cold flat like that. Can you give me you opinion on what range you think he cold flats from the SB there' 99-JJ'

Did I wuss out?
A call leaves us with 40bb post flop. Getting in 37bb preflop vs a UTG+1 open is not going to be far better than breakeven if it even yields a profit. 3b/f would be a better option than 3b/c, because I expect his 4b shove range to be quite strong at about [JJ+,AQs+,AKo], but I don't really like 3b/f here, because I would rather just play a pot postflop. Yes people can call behind, but I have no problem folding if I think I got outflopped. This also looks to be pre-antes which makes 3 betting much less appealing.

2 hands in Carbon 5K, feedback please.
Stack sizes are super important in these hands, so I can't make a very good response without that information, but I'm generally flatting on the first hand. With 3 players in the pot and having top set on T74, that flop doesn't hit their range at all, so the only hands you are going to get value from are what you said, JJ+. Since JJ+ is such a small part of their range, with AK/AQ being a much bigger part, I would try to allow them to catch up a little bit. The second one I'm not exactly sure what the correct play is, but I think flatting and clicking it back are both better than shoving. ...

call or fold? $11 1R1A. Consider ICM?
Table image is somewhat important, because if he perceives you as tight his range is tighter, and wider if he perceives you as loose. But it's important to remember that a range that 3bet shoves a 15-20bb stack is different than a range that 3bet/folds. Just a little bit off topic. This is important to think about when deciding whether to offer or accept a deal. ICM chop numbers mean if everyone is the same skill this is the monetary amount you would expect to make on average if you played the FT out infinite samples. If the players are better than you it's in your interest to take an ...

call or fold? $11 1R1A. Consider ICM?
Ha, funny coincidence... Since the prize pool remaining was almost exactly $10k (10,095), the percentages of the prize pool left was about the amount of money. For example: 32% ~ $3200 But yeah, giving him a 6% range is unrealistic in this situation. And that's ONLY a value range. I'd say a fair assumption can be 12% [33+,A8s+,KJs,ATo+,KJo], and we have 58.5% equity vs that range. Your equity now is $1830, because we have to calculate it from the start of next hand, not the start of this one. If you win this hand your equity changes to $2271. If you lose, it's about $1380. If you fold it ...

call or fold? $11 1R1A. Consider ICM?
I can't imagine this is ever a fold. With all the other stacks I can see why you would want to, but you have to keep in mind you can't win a tournament without risk. If he is a reg then you can expect he is shoving something like 22+,A8s+,KJs+,ATo+,KJo+. Some of those he might flat, but I think his range is wide enough here to be calling and being ahead.

Two tough hands early stages
first hand I'm never raising the river, and most likely calling. Also, I would go bigger on that flop. That is a super wet flop and there are a lot of hands that he will call you with so try to get as much value as you can. second hand you have 48 bb to start the hand, and put in 17 preflop, which gives you about a psb left. Just get it in pre.

Did I wuss out?
I think flatting is good preflop, I would consider 3 betting if he is lag and might 4b/f a lot. As played I'm not folding this flop. It does get tricky because if you flat you're allowing more cards to come off, and we don't really know what are good cards. We do have the Jc, but we don't know if he has a higher club, or if we have the best hand. Also, if other players flat or shove behind you, and it folds to us it's tricky as well. Someone who check shoves this board is usually a set, the Ac, or a small flush, so we do have outs vs most of his hands or are ahead. I think shoving is ...

Turbo MTT short stack spot
I can't see myself folding here, and your assumption that his range is TT+/AJ+ is way off in my opinion. You left out the possibility of him r/f, and he can definitely have smaller pairs than TT, and any ace really. Even though everyone is short here I think I go with it, not being close to the final table or any big money jumps.

final table icm
hmm, interesting. I input the information into Holdem resources and it says your calling range should be TT+. AKo is a fold. Even though it's correct for the CO to shove almost any two here, it's because your range has to be very tight, because the chips you risk are worth more than the chips you win. It's a tough spot to fold in game because you would think AK should be strong enough to call, but I guess it's not. FWIW I was thinking AK would be a call here.

MTT - 40 left - Do we take this B v B spot?
If you're folding A4s here he can shove ATC profitably. Of course he can't know what your folding range is so it isn't too much to worry about, but from his stats, I would guess that he is shoving pretty wide here, and I'm calling with A4s. It's not a spot where you're going to be dominating him often, but you will be against JT KJ type hands quite a lot. Doesn't surprise me that he showed up with A6o.

Tough spot heads up in $27r MTT
Wow, surprised to see the result. I think it's a good shove by him, because you fold Ax, and you're never checking behind QJ or a set, and usually betting 2 pair on the turn.

Yes it was brutal, but it was really only a 1200 game downswing with the last 600 roughly breakeven. During SCOOP my ABI was higher than normal, but I don't think it changed all that much.

Deep ITM (170ish left) 2 big stacks (top 20) in The Big $3.30
I like flatting pre, and would be check calling this flop. I don't like raising because against his GII range I doubt you have 40%. You both are super deep so just play passively and get value from his bluffs. He most likely shuts down on the river and checks back a lot of value hands as well, so you can usually get to showdown in 2 streets.

Advice on Being a full-time grinder!
Hey, Congrats on making this leap. It's a big step to start to take poker seriously, and I remember when I was in your shoes back in 2007. I've played professionally supporting myself for about 5 years, (2 years off after black friday). Starting out I would suggest you to be aware of the swings in MTT's, that you can go a whole month losing money. This graph was my downswing during SCOOP this year, 2 break even months, and a super heater in August. This is the brutal reality of MTTs. When I play I start registering sometime in the morning/mid afternoon (EST) and play for about 8-11 hours. ...

Well style of play really depends on the structure of the tournament. If there are no antes, then tighter is better. When antes come in, you want to play looser. It also depends on your table draw. How are the players at the table' Do you have stations on your left' Play tighter. If you have nits on your left you can open more.

unethical to berate opponents online; live?
It depends. I think you should never educate players at the table. If they played a hand stupid and won, then that is good and what you want, it just doesn't feel like it in the moment. Players who play bad make it possible to make money at poker, and you have to always keep that in mind. However, if someone is being disrespectful, then sometimes I'll say something back to them, although it's (hopefully) never out of tilt, and it's just kind of in a joking way. I'm always careful live, because I think things can escalate to violence easily with some people, and I don't try to start any ...

I doubt you'll get someone to review that many hands for you but I'm sure you can learn a lot from the stats themselves, although much of how you should be playing you can't learn from just fixing some stats. Looking at your stats in the macro sense is a good idea, and I would make sure you filter the hands you look at by players dealt into the hand, because when you are deep in a tourney and it's

I don't really get what you're asking for. What do you consider "very good" online' How much are you making playing on bovada, and how are you evaluating yourself when you say you are very good' I think if you are very good online, it should transfer to live play fairly easily. The biggest problem I had going from online to live was calming down and not bluffing myself out of tournaments for no reason. Online I was used to playing so many tables, so it felt like I was always in a hand, which when transferring to live play is tough to deal with sometimes not even playing a hand for an hour. ...

Advice On Recent Hand Played In The Million
snap call. He's shoving about a pot size bet. There is absolutely no way I'm folding here. You should be ahead a large majority of the time vs players who play that way preflop and this way on this flop. This flop has no overcards to your jacks, so I expect to see smaller pocket pairs a large % of the time, even hands like Tx. I just don't see you beat here often enough to ever justify a fold with these stack sizes and this action on this flop.

Tough spot heads up in $27r MTT
As played, when he check shoves the river, it's pretty gross, and I think it's very polarized. I think it's QJ or a missed flush draw. He's never really doing it with less value because better two pair check/call or lead out, sets are so unlikely (since you block a 4) and he probably raises TT+ pre. Also, however many combos of missed draws you find that he can have, you need to remove some because he's likely check/folding them fairly often. I think I fold this river, but it's really a hand that you need to have a feel for the player, so I can't say for 100% because reads you get on ...
