There was a really good series on deuces cracked. It was called solid state PLO by two authors. I don't remember their names but it was a great series. Starts at beginner level and moves to advanced strategy. I watched it when I wanted to switch to PLO cash games and it helped my game immensely.

TT on 3flush flop, no draw, cbet in 3way pot in position ? or check back ?
I'm raising larger preflop first of all. You have 50bb and he covers you, so he will most likely call a larger raise (probably going to 1600-1750) and you want to get as much value from your strong hands as possible. With him being out of position, you want to build the pot as large as you can as well as discourage the blinds from thinking they are priced in to calling. You want to play this pot heads up. I'm definitely betting the flop. It's really not a bad board for you as it doesn't hit their range at all. The only hands they will be raising with are Ac, flushes and sets so I think it'd ...

Our shove range from SB v BB ?...we have 14bb he has 6bb effective stack..
I would be shoving here most likely as I just don't think randoms are calling often enough. Here is the formula to figure out if you should be shoving. C% = % of the time he calls F% = % of the time he folds C + F = 1 (always) C%*(amount we win when called * our equity) - (amount we lose when called * his equity) F%*(how much we win when he folds) so if we plug in some realistic numbers here (figures are in big blinds) 7.5 is because there are 2.5bb in the pot from blinds and antes, and he has another 5bb we can win in his stack. The 5 is how much we are risking. C%*(7.5*our eq)-(5*his ...

Good fold ?
Definitely never limping preflop as this hand has no value in multiway pots, and as a general rule I'm always raising first in when I'm entering a pot. You should definitely just be folding preflop here as there are no antes and stacks are deep. Opening this hand is quite marginal from the cutoff with no antes and this early, so folding will always be fine. You're going to get yourself into trouble more often than not with this hand. Just fold pre and wait for strong hands because at the micro level you can be a winning player by just being able to get value from your strong hands.

any thoughts on this hands. any help and advise appreciated
Yeah looks pretty standard. Tons of combo draws he can be check shoving on the turn, not folding. Sure you'll be up against a set sometimes, but I think he can check shove some hearts, 66, and hand with a 6. It's kind of tough to put him on a lot of hands with 6's in it though since he called from the sb vs your UTG raise. I still think I'm playing it the way you did and calling here pretty much all the time.

Is this right with AQ
I would generally be betting small or checking the turn. You block a lot of his flush draws with the As, and it's tough to get value from worse because the ace hits a large part of your range. I think when you bet and get raised on the turn it becomes an easy fold. Betting the flop was fine with the As, but 5way I would even argue check/folding may be better. This flop doesn't hit anyone's range too hard though, so betting with the As seems ok.

This result belongs to a section you don't have read access to.
Push/Fold - When the Action has already been opened in front of us?
With 10bb's this is going to almost be a shove unless the player is opening from a short stack UTG, or opening into a ton of short stacks, or is very tight. This is also assuming there's no ICM pressure. I think what you are looking for the answer to is a late position raise where you have fold equity, but I will answer the question above. If you have no fold equity, then you need to figure out what his range is, then put it in Pokerstove vs your hand and see how much equity you have. This doesn't count for the 3 players behind you waking up 13% of the time, but will give you a basic idea ...

Book Suggestions
lol I was trying to preview my post, not post. I don't expect you'll find a book specifically on $1-3 and $2-5 hold'em because it's such a narrow subject. $1-2 and $1-3 are considered the lowest limit in live hold'em. If you can't beat $1-2 with a standard rake then you are most likely a losing player. I'm not posting this to berate you, but it's tough to suggest a book for you without knowing where you're at right now. I could just assume a ton of things about you and suggest something, but that may not really help you on what you need to improve on. How often do you play now' You're in ...

Final table 5 left sb v bb - A5o facing 15bb shove
With you being the shortest stack here, I would be calling off. It may not be correct from an ICM standpoint, but I don't care if folding makes me move up 1 pay latter more often, I expect to win much more often if I win this pot. If everyone was around 15BB then this becomes a fold, but as it is here, I think I'm fairly happy calling. Yes if you are folding A5o here then he can profitably shove any two cards.

Another Preflop spot: AQ on button, Do you call this 4 bet
This hand is looks pretty straight forward. Definitely can't fold vs the UTG+1 flatter after he shoves, I don't think UTG shoves AJ here with the UTG+1 caller, and I don't think he's doing it with less than 99, so folding vs him seems correct.

MicroMillions #067 8.80 Progressive Super-Knockout
Definitely shoving pre as I don't think he's limping a value range here with his stack and the stacks in the blinds. With the action before, him raising the button and you shoving and he folding, I feel like that's a good reason why he isn't raising this hand here. When he raises it makes it easier for you to play vs with your stack because you have fold equity and you increase your stack by a good amount by shoving over his raise. When he limps it makes it harder for you to play because you will be checking a lot of hands and he still gets to play a pot in position. With QJ, just shove pre.

A2-A7 is it correct to call an all in BB?????????????
You're saying the SB shoves 12bb into you in the BB' Vs most players in most situations you should absolutely be calling with any ace as his shove range should be very wide. If you are folding an ace then he can profitably shove any two cards there because you just aren't calling enough. Some stats on the player are helpful, but as Ewing said, unless he's a complete nit, call all day. If you don't know anything about the player then call.

Is A3 good enough here?
Yes. If he is shoving under 10bb then I would lean toward him shoving a little lighter, but anything over 10bb I think they tighten up a lot.

was stuck here , my question is are we c/c the river ?
Flat pre is marginal. He has about 25bb to start the hand and we are OOP. I'd probably just fold. Don't understand why we are check/calling the turn after check raising the flop. He has about 1.3 psb left on the turn, just bet around half pot and shove the river.

Is A3 good enough here?
It's very close. You're going to have close to 50% equity when you call vs a 45% shove range, but we need to know that he's shoving that wide. With the dead money in the pot it will most likely be a profitable call but again, we need to be sure he's shoving this wide.

4 handed at FT w short stack , flop trips on fd flop
No you don't want to just bomb the turn because you most likely won't get called by the majority of his range because it's such a big overshove. You played it correctly and just got unlucky. What I would suggest though is you look at your play overall because 16/13/5 is pretty tight, you want to be closer to 22/18/7.

SPR, what are your opinions on it?
It is important because say you have 40k and you 3b to 10k preflop and get called. You have an awkward SPR on the flop now of about 1.5:1. Also you need to consider this when betting 3 streets. If you have a strong value hand you want to try and get your whole stack in, so if it's possible you want to set up a shove by the river.

Is this right ? Calling a Shove.
There is a formula to figure out how much equity you need to make a call profitable. Basically it is: X = (Our hand equity vs his range*the amount you win) - (His range equity vs our hand*the amount you lose) So in this example, we'll say there are 9 players at the table, so 1800 in antes, 3k in blinds, and his 18k that he shoved. It is 16k for you to call to win 22.8k The formula would be: W = Our hand equity vs his range L = His range equity vs our hand X = Our expectation X = (W% * 22,800) - (L% * 16,000) W + L always has to equal 1. For example, if we have 40% equity, then he has 60% ...

Any help Appreciated, I want to improve.
yes those stats are helpful, because if you see you have someone who has a fold to cbet% of like 2%, then you know that you either shouldn't bluff him, or you need to double barrel bluff him. With the fold to 3bet stat, same thing. If you have someone with a huge fold to 3bet% then you can abuse them by 3betting them very often and print money.

Do we jam or just call ? what would be better...
25/10 is indeed very passive, and that 10% raise is so important here. We need to remember that 10% PFR is his raise % from ALL positions, so it's going to even be less than that UTG. This seems like a pretty easy fold with the stacks that have entered this hand. I agree with 99+, AQ.

play like the pro's ... by phill hellmuth
I'm sure it's worth reading, but the strategies in the book may not be relevant in todays games. I've never read it so I can't give you my thoughts on it, but just take it with a grain of salt, because that book was written over 10 years ago and the game changes so much in such little time. That goes for any old poker book though. It's important to know what strategies used to work as well as what works today, because if you think of poker as a game of rock paper scissors, (a very basic oversimplified example), when scissors work, paper doesn't, but when rock works, paper does. So when you ...

what would you do ?
Yeah agree with khanrava, as played I fold, but I'm 4betting this pre as I don't want to play 3 way and you are pricing in the SB by calling. Getting in 50bb preflop preantes isn't really desirable with AK, but it's not bad at this level either.

[215$, 100K Gtd] Facing a flop with FD+2over in the bubble
yeah, agree that you can definitely call down vs some players and that will be the most profitable line, but vs someone playing 20/15/1.3 I don't think they triple barrel bluff enough for that to work, and I think they check back the turn a lot as well.

tough one here
I'm also minraising here UTG. Your raise size is way too big. I disagree with khanrava and am calling the river here with the second nut flush. Getting 3.5:1, we only have to be right 23% of the time to show a profit, and I just think there are enough hands he will jam river for you to justify calling the river here.

[215$, 100K Gtd] Facing a flop with FD+2over in the bubble
Flatting a reraise is an option, but I'd rather just take the aggressive line because I don't want to get bet out on the turn, and it's going to be tough to not get called down on the river if it comes brick brick. Some players would take a line where they would raise with a hand like 44 to get us to fold, and then check back the majority of turns, and it's going to be tough for him to fold when we brick the river. There aren't many jacks in his range just AJ, KJ, QJ, JTs, and he should be 3 betting some of those, so there are really not that many. I think being him facing so much pressure on ...
