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 ...

hand help pls - KQ in BU
Yeah agree with not flatting pre. KQs I would flat but KQo I would 3b. It doesn't flop well enough, and it doesn't play well vs a 4b range so it's an easy 3b/f vs UTG. I think I'm folding the turn because you don't beat much, just KJ and some flush draws, but there aren't many of those hands in his range pre flop so I thin it's a fairly easy fold.

TT on 773ss flop
I think you need to be folding to his 3b if you are raising the flop. A player rising UTG who is willing to get it in on 773 probably has JJ+. Flush draws are such a small part of his range that I just don't think jamming here is going to be profitable. I also don't think he is jamming 88, although it's possible vs a player with no info.

AK 4 bet or flat?
Never flatting almost 20% of your stack here. Only play here is 4bet shove. With his sizing there is about 1600 in the pot. With you being in the cutoff I think it's very easy for him to overvalue hands here, and even if he folds you win about 16bb with no showdown.

This could make me look like i level myself often. Maybe not so much.
I think your read of the player is off. He is a passive fish. His stats are 70/7/19. It's weird that his 3b stat is so high, but with a small sample that can easily be skewed. someone running 70/7 over 50 hands is clearly a passive fish, and with him betting min on flop and 2bb on turn I think I'm absolutely calling here as he definitely doesn't need to have a Q. You have a lot of 9's beat, as well as a bunch of draws and some random hands that he's just betting to bet. I call the turn.

That's true, but often you're missing hands that you're misplaying, and by hiring a coach they point that out to you.

Coaching.
Well coaches provide specific answers to questions you have and can analyze your hand histories and tell you exactly what you need to improve on to get better. When you subscribe to a training site, you're just watching other people play and have to learn on your own to incorporate what you see into your own game.

$109 FTOPS HU Shoot Out
First hand, I don't think he checks an ace on the turn so I think it's safe to value bet. Has to be on the small side though because in a pot that was 4b pre, the only hands you may get value from are JJ, QJ, maybe JT/KT. I think the second one is fine against an aggressive opponent. It's a decent board for him to bluff, and I would expect him to value bet a 6 there, surprising he didn't. Third hand floating the turn is weird because of your limp pre. It really depends what your limp pre range is to decide if making a play at this pot would be the best line. Definitely not. He makes it ...

Got lost on this hand…help w/ JT plz...
Fold pre. If you're going to play the hand, raise being first in. On the flop I hate check raising. He isn't going to call you with worse hands and your check/call range is extremely weak if top pair shit kicker is not in there. The turn bet/fold is just terrible. You're basically putting him on JJ, 44, 88, TT, or Q9. You block a J and a T so there's only one combo of each of those left. 8 combos total with maybe a couple Q9 or 79. Just AA and KK in his range are enough to make this a jam, and with your extremely weak turn bet, I think he would raise often with over pairs. And as played you ...

AK problem
Yeah very easy call here. He's shoving about 21bb and we're getting like 2:1 with AK. Never folding here, not even if the guy is a nit. There just isn't a tight enough range to assign him that we don't have the required equity to call. Against a 5% range of [TT+,AQs+,AQo+] we have 50%, and we only need 33% to breakeven. We'd be burning money folding.

HoldemResources
There are a lot of things you can do with holdem resources. It's a great program. It is not just for heads up pots. It can show you correct push/fold ranges past 10bb stacks, correct shoves over raises, as well as many other things. It's a very in depth program and I can honestly say that I know I don't know even half of what it can do but I still get a ton of use out of it. You may not be using it correctly. You need to copy a hand history, then choose basic hand, paste from clipboard, then it will tell you what each player should shove/fold. It gets more in depth but that's the basic of it.

First live tournament on Sunday any advice?
After I wrote my reply, I just realized this was posted 3 days ago, so sorry for the late response but hopefully you can still get something out of this. You shouldn't play if it isn't a smart idea financially. Is this because you don't have a big bankroll and it's a large portion of it, or because you don't have a lot of money period' If you play with money you are afraid to lose then your play will be affected immensely. I understand the thrill of taking shots, but don't play with money you can't afford to lose. With that said... If you play a lot of tables online simultaneously, then ...

What is the recomended play here?
This is an easy shove pre. Facing a button raise, a small pair is going to be the best hand a majority of the time, and there are so many overcards you don't want flopping by just calling. You're also allowing him to realize his equity. For example, if he has JTo, he has about 50% equity, and you're letting him see that. By shoving, you get him to fold that 50% equity, because calling a shove with JTo is just going to lose him so much money in the long run. Also if you 3b to say 5bb, he may shove and then you are getting a good price to call. You don't want to give him that option, and just ...

check behind on turn + eventual call on river?
Post flop you played it fine, but preflop is where you need to make a decision. You have about 26bb to start the hand with a hand that doesn't flop well at all. Often times you're going to have a plethora of overcards and will be facing a cbet most of the time. It depends on how often the villain is opening from EP, but if you have no info this is very close. I think shoving will be close to breakeven. About 22% of the time you will run into 99+,AQs+,AQo+ behind you not including how often the initial raiser will call you. It's a very close spot, and I think either folding or shoving are ...
