Can you start CRUSHING online after 10 years of sucking?
I think you can, but depends on the person and why they suck. If you have the right mentality and mind for it but you suck because you just don't understand how the game works, then yeah some training would probably work. A lot of people suck just because of their personality though (lazy, fearful, angry, etc.). In that case they would need to actually change as a person to be able to crush.

Need some advice on my final hand of the Little One for One Drop
I prefer to shove pre because there is already over 1k in the pot and I don't like playing OOP with a 30bb stack. I know that it weights our range heavily to AK or 88, but I much prefer that because we take down the pot a lot preflop and sometimes get called and are in a flip. Much better than 3 betting and having to check-fold a lot of flops. Overall I think shoving is more profitable.As played I would check-shove or check-fold if there was a lot of action from the other 2. Check shove gets action from some draws and probably KQ. I prefer check-shove on the flop because you can often get ...

Variance or is just mircostakes?
2 things for you: Bankroll management, and smaller field MTTs (or Multi table Sit N Go's) Try 90 or 180 player sit and go's. There are less players so there is less variance. Because the fields are smaller you are more likely to get consistent scores and will have a better chance at building up a bankroll. Because you can't deposit much, you really have to stick to good bankroll management and play only limits which you have 100 buy ins for. For example if you deposit $50 you should play the 50c sit and gos. And then move up once you have grinded it up to $100 or so. Bankroll management ...

Flopped middle set in 3bet pot on wet board, thoughts?
Folding second set is a bit overkill but this sort of player is fairly easy to read and you know he is strong. About the preflop 3 bet player: Looking at his aggression level stats (20/6, 0.7 AF over 400 hands) he probably has something big here, like KK or AA. Maybe AdKx, but that sort of player probably flats AK pre if he can't raise first. So there are 4 KK combos and 6 AA combos. I probably think that over and then shove anyway. About the other player: If he has a flush you have outs.

Sabotaging myself
Are there any other ways people sabotage themselves' I know there are lots of "shove-monkeys" - people who are most comfortable with a push-fold stack. Personally I don't like playing the short stack. I sometimes find I am indifferent whether I bust a session early or go deep because if I bust early I can do other things... Not a good mindset. Maybe I need a break for a few months.

Sabotaging myself
Yeah I do the same,but usually only when I have a push/fold stack, and never if it is big money up top. For me I think I just prefer to zone out and not think too much because it's exhausting. Usually when it gets down to 16 or so players I pay more attention.

3betting and calling 4bet shove Final Table $4k GTD 6 max
Because there is ICM involved and also A8o is not that great I would rather just ship over his open. Mainly because you can avoid having to call off in a flip scenario against hands like K9 and JT etc.

Preflop spot in 110E freezout
3bet fold is also an option, I know you can do that with 92o, but I don't think turning a weak hand like threes into a bluff is that bad.

Preflop spot in 110E freezout
Id either flat or fold. 3b/c is really bad imo and unneccesarily high variance. 3b shove is not great either but far better than 3b/c because at least you fold out some flips and maybe some small pairs that dominate you. Flatting not great with 31bbs vs a good reg even if you are not strictly set mining because you are likely to feel obliged to spew making moves at the pot. Also not guaranteed to get paid if you hit. The right thing to do is probably fold. For me it is tempting to call though and I probably often would and then just not get too involved post flop.

How bad is it to stack off here?
Raise bigger because you are oop with 4 limpers. Personally I don't mind just jam it in pre with 31bbs.

should i be value betting this 100% of the time?
Yes I'd value bet that but bet smaller because you are trying to get a call from some sort of pair or 2 pair hand, and there is 4 to a straight out there as well as a flush which he has to be wary of.

Final 2 tables - Spew with AQ?
I see no reason not to bet the flop. Since you didn't bet the flop, I agree the turn is a good card to barrel. I'm not sure I like the river sizing though, because I don't think he folds any made hand that he called the turn with on that blank river. If you bet 70% of pot you might get some folds.

What is villians shoving range? What is your calling range?
Even though hes UTG at full table he should shove Wide because he is so short and there is so much chips on the table.Yes he will probably get called wider than others if he is a reg but he still has decent fold equity because none of the stacks are big enough that they can afford to call too wide. He also has decent equity if called with below range and way too short to try to wait for a stronger hand. Any suited ace, 79s+, any suited 3 gapper or better where both cards are 8 or higher. A8o+ , all pairs, all broadway. Geraldo can't afford to call too wide with his 15bb stack, so I think ...

How should I have played this hand? Should I have put him on AK?
You would really need an idea on how he plays, for example what sort range is he 3 betting' This board hits an ABC players 3 betting range pretty hard, so I agree with playing it slower. Afterall the only hand that didnt hit that board are Tens or Jacks, IF they are in his range.I agree with checking the flopI would bet/fold river vs most players, vs an ABC player or nitty type then you could make a case for check fold.

How would u play this? floping nut str8 flush
I prefer to flat because you can't be sure if he has the Ac - He might have the Kc or Qc and would fold that to a raise. If I were to raise I would shove, not click it back because shoving gives you a weaker range IMO.

Hot $55 busted 72nd because I shoved with J high - Donked it off? :s
With 80 players left in a turbo + 10bbs I think that range is far too tight. I think you have to take any spot you can get because 10bbs will turn into 6bbs in about 2 minutes when blinds go up. If ICM becomes a factor then I think leaving off the bottom of your range is a good idea if the other players are likely to bust before you. I'm interested to hear other players thoughts on this.

Big $33 spot on the turn
I would play the flop the same way and just call. It's not really the best draw in the world and it isn't something I'd be happy to stack off with. If the board texture were different then I would be more inclined to raise, but there is a fair chance that a random players' range has hit that flop. On turn I prefer to fold, as you said yourself you have basically no fold equity and have probably only 25% equity vs whatever he has.

What to do? Help please
Just try to estimate his range and either shove or fold. You can get some info on what sort of player he is by watching what he's doing or you can check sharkscope or OPR. If you think he has a really tight range, then you should not call because you only have a slim chance to flop a hand you are confident with (straight or trips'). You should not shove either if you think he is tight. If you think he has a wider range like 77+ ATs+ then it is an easy shove. Some players will jam their mid strength hands but raise with their premiums. Other players will not be playing their stack size and ...

Did i overplay AA?
I don't think you should raise the flop, the board is Q45 rainbow which is very dry and there are very few draws. Just calling will keep the pot smaller and will allow you to get value from hands that you beat. As played when you get shoved on it is best to fold vs most players with 100bbs.

Shove at the Bubble vs. AA (SnG)
To explain further why you should not call the JTs out of position with so few chips - You are going to miss 2/3 of the flops you see, so you will most likely be check folding which is a waste of your chips. Hope it helps gl.

Shove at the Bubble vs. AA (SnG)
Not a single table SNG player but I think the first hand is alright. You are on life support with 4bbs, will be down to 2 bbs in 2 hands. Other 3 stacks are all over 10bbs so you really need to put it in with your pair. Second hand, I think a shove is OK vs aggressive openers because JTs plays well, it's especially juicy if they have shown they can raise/fold. Probably best to just fold though and look to open shove with your 8bb's or hopefully pick up a hand

worst missclick / most expensive uve made?
Only a few days ago I typed an extra 0 and accidentally c-bet about 5 times the pot on the flop, and had to check fold turn. Lost about 35 bbs on that hand. I once accidentally open-shoved 60bbs in a tourney with A9 because I was playing a few turbos and got my tables mixed up. Everyone folded.

AJ on dry Ace high-Board at FT of The Bigger 55$
When Bostero flat calls you preflop you can most likely rule out him having any Ace-x hand. He would have 44 or KK. I say this because you have 20bb's so he would 3bet / call AQ+ or 88+ I would think. He might flat KK+ to trap though. As for 44 - Well he probably shouldn't flat 44 only to set mine, but he might not just be set mining, he might think he can also win the pot by betting the flop. Edit: He flatted the flop with 1 player still behind, so he looks strong. When he bets the turn just a little less than what you bet on the flop, it is a gross feeling, which makes me think 44. ...
