Not 'ratting anyone out' applies to criminals where they are all doing the same wrong thing. Here we have people doing their stream legit and then 1 person who is (allegedly) doing something shady, so they can rat him out if they want.

loosing control late MTT
1. It is anxiety, because it is so suspenseful deep in MTT, and adrenaline is running, you sabotage it so that you can be free of the anticipation/anxiety. 2. Fold turn - You said he was a calling station, and he 3bet you preflop and bet into you on the turn, so your second pair is way behind.

One more: You may be no Billy Crystal, but Analyze this please.
4x raise off that stack = does not want to see a flop (mid pair) but is not folding preflop

weak Ax post
I don't know about that, not this deep in a tournament in a valuable multiway pot..giving up the betting lead. Being the big stack deep in a major, you can leverage that and make them feel like they have to commit their whole stack just by c betting. It really puts pressure on the others to have a big hand to continue, so you can't just give up so easily I think. This hand is also very easy to play with the effective stack sizes just bet/fold or if called check fold turn as they are unlikely to continue with worse on this dry flop. That said though, I don't hate your play that much as you ...

In BB vs UTG
Yeah flat pre against a loose opener utg and check shove this flop is great and I love it, especially that flop which should not help his range at all. I would have done exactly the same thing. There is the threat of domination if you flop a king of course but we have to not be too picky and take that risk being so short I think. I think shoving pre is quite risky as you only have a few chips and can be snapped pretty wide. His utg range includes some hands he will fold to your shove of course but probably less weaker hands than if he raised in later position.

I will play the Red Spade Open tomorrow!!!
Actually most hands that need to bluff would have folded turn most likely, so I don't think he has a bluff here often. But there are worse hands that can raise for value against your weak river line. I still think you will have an easier decision if you fix your sizing, and also more value when you are called by worse hands

Sucks the way that hand played out. You are right that your sizing can induce bluffs and worse hands to value raise, and if you underrep your hand it is hard to fold. Putting myself in your shoes I am likely sizing the turn smaller like 650 (we want to balance against betting for value and protecting against draws) and betting river bigger about 1200. He might not shove over that line with a flush, but he might call with worse. And if he does shove then it is easier to fold because he would never be bluffing.

Advice on this hand pls ? Hyper turbo tour / ft / 5 left
Listen. There is no way you can ever ever ever fold in this spot. People will call your shove with worse hands, and people will shove over the top of a raise with even worser hands. So there was no getting away from it, no need to question yourself. You got unlucky, move on. Don't waste time thinking what might have been. What you can learn from this is, that the best play is as everyone is saying above, raise/call shove. It lets people shove with crap like A2, KT etc, which they would fold if you open shove. So in other words the more worse hands you can potentially get to stay in the pot, ...

I need help to save my career.
You can get enough volume in if you play across multiple other sites like 888, PKR, Winamax, etc etc etc. I don't think you are getting on stars or tilt again, that is scary behaviour sending an email like you did, they would be worried about any further contact with you causing issues in the future.

2/5 Live JJ spot
I just don't think betting 275 after raising 265 preflop is going to be aces or kings. I'd expect aces or kings to be betting bigger. I'd expect sets to be betting smaller (but i dont think sets are in his preflop range anyway). When he bets 275 I don't think that is a confident bet so therefore shove and expect a fold from AK and air and possibly a bad hero call from TT.

2/5 Live JJ spot
I'd be shoving over that flop bet it smells really weak to lead 275 after 3 betting to 265. Pot is big enough if be happy to take it on the flop than risk an over card peeling on the turn.

A little mindset help please
Remember that AA will lose to a lower pair 1 in 5 times and KK will lose to Ace-rag 30% of the time so it is very common and you have to get used to it. Just control what you can and brush off the bad beats. Easier said than done but after seeing thousands of bad beats myself I eventually got to a point where I realised that getting mad about it is pointless and just refuse to let it get to me now, most of the time ;)

Strategy for playing in WSOP Europe 2015 10k Main Event, Berlin
How experienced are you' If you are not very good or experienced post flop then you need to spend some time on hand reading. Just play each hand as well as you can and try to play position. Try not to check call down multiple streets in marginal situations. Betting is better than calling, unless you think your opponent can have hands they will bluff with. Play your hands in such a way that you have easy decisions and stay out of the tough spots/marginal situations. Use your image, whatever that will be, to your advantage, as many players will play you according to your image. I would ...

Big 1 4 1 drop champ said in few yrs poker not good income.
Well the game has become tougher over the last 5 years or so, so it is not as juicy as it once was. As for the future, I don't think he can predict that. There may be a second 'poker boom' or the US may be allowed to play again, so I don't think his words are gospel. Also, Colman is known for being very negative about poker in general and as great at poker as he is, he has some very unbalanced opinions.

Question about getting the right odds to see a flop with small pair
BB raised 5x which is pretty big but there are 2 callers, so I'm definitely flatting here as well to set mine without question.

5$ Deepstack AK from the SB 3-bet pot.
I'd just check fold the turn. You only beat some Ace high and King high hands, and some random undercard combos. Hard not to call with your flush draw though getting such a nice price but I'd just say give it up because the spot is not looking great.

Please critique this hand
You should be check folding that flop with your stack sizes and only 1 pair on 9Ax board with basically no redraws and up against a strong UTG range. Basically fold pre because you are not deep enough to mess around and have to hit the flop hard to continue (rare that this will happen). The only time I'd defend this hand in SB vs an EP open is if there were a caller or 2 behind, AND you were deeper, then you could call because implied odds increase. As played on the turn check shove is good, as you can get value from a lot of Aces and maybe hes loose enough to call with draws. And don't ...

QT vs good aggro reg 3.30 MTT To CBET or not?
This board hits his range more than it hits yours, he should probably know that. With that said he is handcuffed with his stack size so is less likely to check raise bluff you, but will still have draws in his check raise range. You can't call a check raise because you both are not deep enough. This is the type of situation where I will check back a lot, and just bet any turn if he checks or call if he leads out and the turn improves your hand (probably will lead out since you check flop) .

Get greedy? Or drop the hammer?
I prefer flatting to to give the other players at the table a chance to shove worse hands that they might fold if you did shove. Your stack and position is perfect for it since it might look like you have left yourself 'room' to fold Vs one of the bigger stacks. Higher variance yes but not that high, it is KK not JJ so you have so many more hands crushed and should feel good about your play.

Need a little help with a hand
how much did he raise to' 2k, 3k' If he raise to 3k, then he is probably priced in to call. I like the play but I prefer to have more chips if there is a good chance he will call ATC, J4 is not good enough if hes calling any 2. I don't know what range is good enough but Id say JT+ and pairs

3.30 MTT line check vs tight passive
Edit: Misread the hand. I prefer bet/fold to get value from a 9 or ace high but its not so bad to check fold as I don't think the player you described has a bluff too often.

36BB: bust out hand - 37 players remaining
First hand, if he is super tight (like he would check-fold AK in this spot) then you can flat and rep the Jack on the turn and river. I don't think shoving is terrible, as you will get him off AK and have equity if called, but I don't think you can get him to fold anything else in his 'tight' 3 bet range. Second hand very standard!

This is still bugging me... Can I check a set on the turn and give him a free card?
Definitely bet as per above you want to make sure you get as much value as possible. He check called you on a dry board so he could have all sorts of crap to get value from really, but if you sense he might check fold, just bet smaller so he cant.

Spot during semi-late stages of a $100 MTT
Bet fold the flop is what I would do, or I might bet bigger and call due to odds. I don't like checking it back to try to hit your outs because you usually won't hit them and if you do you might not get paid. You also open yourself up to lose the pot if he leads the turn and you don't hit. Calling isn't terrible after he shoves, you have a break even call if he has a 1 pair hand which is not Kx, Qx, or Jx. If you don't want to fold then bet bigger on the flop to take away his fold equity and also give you the right odds :D

Opinions please
Fold pre for sure. 38 doesn't play well, 38 suited doesn't play well either. There are so many other hands you can play, why play this one lol. You also are not that desperate to double up with 30bbs.
