Looking for new computer, advice needed pls
I know pretty dumb huh! I've lost mouses, screens, doors, keyboards, and computer desks in the past but this time I went for my laptop. My walls are solid stone though so I cant get away with that. At my old house I used to punch my fridge since that was softer and I just covered the dents with fridge magnets and wedding invites.

Yeah I actually punched it and since then it just will not work at all. I closed the lid before I hit it also thinking that might do less damage but apparently not.

What is the right play?
I wouldn't fold. He can have weaker aces and be overplaying them, as well as draws. This looks like a short stacked tourney, so people tend to play faster as well.

lol spot with second nuts facing 3 all ins in the 3r
Lol what a weird spot. You are most likely ahead of medhev, probably has sets or 2 pairs, he never has a straight I don't think. As for the other 2, they can have sets, J8 and KJ. I'd just move on because KJ is likely and if you are ahead you need to fade a lot of outs so I might fold it.

Thoughts want on Sunday Million 9th Anniversary hand
Well you just don't know do you some players do some weird things really. But you have a lot of chips so I think you need to try to get your money in good and not level yourself into a light call off. I'd be calling off tight here since this is a reg who will, in this particular tournament, be 4bet-jamming the top of his range preflop since you showed strength, and he would probably play marginal hands more conservatively, but just jam his value range. This spot is different Vs randoms.. Usually I see 2 types of villians do this sort of thing. First villian is an aggro fish and probably ...

Can we Please stop re-entry tournaments!?
I think they can get expensive because it is hard not to reenter when you bust. Overall is it better to have some players being loose and bloating the prizepool knowing they can reenter though'

Is this my mistake in satellites?
Definitely don't fold, but do not shove either - Just flat. You want the other guy in the pot too as that is more chances to KO the short stack.

JJ against allin,34 bbs effective, is this a fold?
I'd be calling. Sometimes you get nervous players shoving silly amounts with QQ+ but more often than not you will see AK.

Looking for new computer, advice needed pls
Thanks a lot for the info guys. I went to the store and looked at this machine and I am glad you say it is not up to the task because it is so damn ugly to look at that it would put me off my game anyway. I'll look for something with a bigger SSD and a video card and a good processor.

How can I avoid this bad bleeding of chips after gaining a big stack early??
Sounds like you are talking about winners tilt. You are letting your emotions override your logic. You need to get your head back into balance and just focus on playing good and not getting upset if you lose a few chips or slip down the leader board.

Lost on this one.
I agree with a lot of the comments above. Prefer to peel 1 here. I really doubt this could be a total bluff, but villians can show up with weaker pairs like 55-66 and just be raising to take the pot down. Makes life hard for him on future streets as well when you flat.

Small Pocket pairs on the buttton 20bb deep!!!
Against very very tight players, raise fold is fine. Against aggro players I'd just shove with the smaller pairs. The reason I'd just shove is because raise folding any pair on the button vs aggro players with perfect reshove stacks makes you ridiculously exploitable...and raise/calling off is too high variance.Mid pairs and up raise call is best because they can show up with some hands that you have dominated/crushed.

Looking for new computer, advice needed pls
I am looking to get a new computer since I broke my last one. I just want to know if this computer I am looking at will run what I need. And also any other advice about using this sort of computer. I like this one because it doubles as a tablet and I can connect it up to a second screen when playing. I will need to run stars and holdem manager at the same time and sometimes Full Tilt. Holdem manager doesn't run so well on my old lap top, my CPU fan used to go nuts when HM was running and also I found it to be very, very slow and chew up heaps of RAM (i think it had 4 gb ram, and the ...

Hero call on the river- interested to hear any thoughts
I think the guy actually thought he was bluffing with the river shove, so the call isn't too bad. I know it is not a good spot to bluff, especially given his stack size, but some players just don't actually think 'what better hand can I get him to fold/what worse hands call' before they bluff, they just want to win the hand so they shove.Problem with the call is he can be bluffing with better hands, mostly small pairs like 55-88, which I am seeing people check call with a lot in low stakes...but they may be more likely to check the river as well due to showdown value, so maybe pure air is ...

Article: The Difference Between Confidence and Self-Belief
This is cool and very true. When going on a downswing sometimes can make sub optimal plays expecting that things won't work out. So really you are not letting variance run it's course

WSOP Circuit Main Event Fold/Push/Play with AQs and 20BB to a two bet?
He's utg1 and raises to 4.5 bbs with a 20bb stack. That is a really bad raise size no matter what he has but it is usually a sign of strength. So you probably have to fold your AQ unless you have seen him always raising to really big amounts and showdown non premium hands.

Would you do anything differently? Heads-up first place $30 second place $0
I would not bother flatting the hand with your stack size because you are out of position and really hard to play a flop with 25 suited unless you hit the flop hard. Instead id rather shove light when you are first to act or reshove any hand that plays well if he raises.

(Live) Facing a 70 big blind 4-bet with AKo
I don't think you need to play high variance with 70bbs. AK can be a bitch to play out of position against a decent opponent, so I might consider a flat a lot of the time just to avoid bloating the pot, which makes c-bets bigger, and second and third barrels harder if you miss. If I did decide to 3bet, then I'd just scratch my head and fold to the shove...I think his shove absolutely sucks by the way, and you were right in your read that he did want you to go away. But if you think you can outplay the remaining players and pick up chips other ways, then I think you can pass up a flip where ...

I like the fold because it merges your range and keeps your opponents guessing.

Is this a call? sb vs bb
Tens are a huge hand blind vs blind but there are 50bb stacks here and vs a very tight player it is hard to 4 bet/call and be ahead. Unless he has Ak suited. If he is as tight as you say, I'd prefer to flat the 3 bet. At least that way you can get away cheap if he shows aggression post flop and you don't improve.

FT bust out ..JJ
I'd fold without reads. You are utg so he needs to have a stronger hand to 3 bet, in theory. I know it is tempting to think he might be squeezing here. But I think most times, in a $1 tourney the players will be on the passive side and won't have a 3-bet bluff range in this spot. So when you shove 40bbs with JJ, you are really hoping that he folds and are never happy when he clicks call.

How can I handle tough situations to organize my thoughts?
Its called impulsive thinking or spazzing out. You will eventually learn not to do it after you pay the price over and over again. Basically you are thinking of ways to win the pot, then you become anxious and will latch on to the first thought process that comes into your head and go with it. And you don't give yourself time to think it through because you just want to be out of the tough spot as quick as possible. .. Maybe try this next time you feel this way: Stop and think that the reason you ARE anxious is because you are about to do something stupid, and subconsciously you know it. Then ...

Float re-raise on the flop with air in $55 MTT bluff all in on river.
I dont mind the float, if you felt he was full of it and went with your read that's great. Only problem is I prefer it in position, so you can bet the turn when he checks. Might be better to jam the flop since you are oop.
