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.

After a day of a lot of stack building then getting owned, this happened.
Preflop sizing is too big, just no point going so big because you either take down a small pot pre or get stuck playing a big pot out of position. As played I'd be pretty much snap calling the river, it improves your hand but is pretty much a blank and changes nothing most of the time. Unlucky that he hit the draw though.

Should We Guarantee First Place Prize Money in the WSOP Main Event?
I think the 10M guarantee is excessive. I get that they want to advertise to everyone that there is a huge prize for first place, because a lot of people that dont play poker much wouldnt realise that the first place is in the multi-millions, and this is a way of getting their attention. But there are ways of showing off without making a bad payout structure and annoying the existing poker players. For example someone above suggested making the top 10 into millionaires - that is a great idea!Or, how about putting a prize pool guarantee on the whole tournament, like $70 Million guaranteed or ...

Energy to Grind
Get out of the house more and get some exercise/sun. Either before or after the session, preferably before so that you aren't eager to get outside towards the end of your session. As for water, I find that too much of that will make me sleepy actually, so I'd stick to a reasonable amount like 4-5 pints a day, if you are not exercising - but you can have MORE if you are exercising or its hot. If you are smoking cigarettes quit those too for unlimited reasons.

Not folding here. He can turn up with all kinds of crap, you are a favourite against his range. Id need a solid read to consider a fold here.

Whats your river play here?
Yeah I prefer lead half pot and fold to raise. The reason is that the other 2 have not been betting big, so check calling probably wont get much value since they will probably only bet small. And also this board is not good to check raise since it has a lot of draws and is paired, so they might not pay off a check raise with a worse hand , so yeah lead out i think is best to make sure you get paid off

$55 monsoon - I miss clicked FYI
Then yeah he seems to be opening a lot so inducing is cool. I prefer raise and 4 bet shove, just because a limp shove is a huge overbet compared to the amount you win if he folds, you can get more out of him if you raise and he 3 bets

Playing behind a limper
Just play your game and pretend he's not there. You can lose a lot vs these players if you try to pressure them off hands post flop, so I wouldn't bloat the pot preflop, and post flop id not get too crazy either. Post flop I prefer to barrel flop and river against this type of player...reason I prefer the 2 barrel is because if they call the flop they probably want to see all 5 cards and won't be folding to a turn bet, so you're better off risking less and betting them off the river when they miss.

compare live to on line?
The suckouts are the same live as online, it just that you get in more hands per hour online. I have played both and have sucked out/ been sucked out on just as much. Online has tougher players though, so to build a roll you have to do it slowly and patiently.

$55 monsoon - I miss clicked FYI
You have 31 bbs which is too much for a limp jam I think. I know it's blind vs blind.. Raise and 4 bet jam is better if you think he is 3 betting with a lot of crap, but you have a 2 hand sample, so is just raise and either flat the 3 bet or fold if it's too big.

Question/Reasoning???
Yeah I am like that live, bank roll management goes out the window. As Arnisss said you are only playing 1 game live, whereas online the 100$ could get you ten 10$ tournies instead and adds up quicker.

$55 Thunder 2nd Chance 6-Max / Final Table Final 5
Obviously there are no value hands he can have that you beat so the question you need to ask is is he bluffing here ever. Yes they may have seen you fold a lot before, but a lot of players still won't act on that and will just play their cards. You have to understand if they are a player that is capable of putting you all in with air because they have seen you fold a lot, or if they are just going to play standard. As played it is an annoying spot to be in, if you really think there are enough bluffs in his range then you can call off as you did. Sorry if this post seems unhelpful but you ...

Downright goofy line from villain. Are we calling it off?
There is 400 chips in the pot on the flop with 50bb effective stacks, what sizing so you think is best' Easy river fold as played.

Is this bad sizing and river fold?
I would bet bigger on turn at least over half pot on turn for value, and probably lead river too for value. although there is some merit in check calling since you felt he didn't have much and might be good to give him a chance to bluff, it is also gross to bet/fold top set.

Got lost on this hand…help w/ JT plz...
Yeah I'd be jamming turn. If expect him to play over pairs that way as well. If you ran into JJ it's just a freak cooler. but you can't count out 88 as well, because he doesn't need to have a premium hand with this preflop action.

AK 4 bet or flat?
I wouldn't 4bet call I'd just shove preflip, never flatting a raise that size with your stack, if you got coolered with aces or kings that's unlucky.

Can BB 4B profitably here?
Whether it's profitable or not should really depend on your image, or how he sees you. Although... The button steal/SB resteal is such a common thing that he might think it's just another one of those situations even without seeing you do it before.

Nothing urgent. Just curious bout' sum.
I can see an argument for both, if you 3 bet, hopefully that can fold out some of the 4 flat callers, and you can take it down with 1 bet on the flop....Having said that though I don't think flatting is terrible, especially if you think all 4 of them will flat call preflop, because if you 3 bet to say 350 or so and all 4 players call, then you only have a pot sized bet left on the flop, which is awkward in a multiway pot if you miss.

I knew he had that! Then why did I call?
Well your odds if winning are 95% after the flop, so unless your premonition is more than 95 % accurate you need to be going with the pot odds and making the call here. I am wondering though, did you envision the 9 because it was coming, or did it come because you envisioned it'

Hoisted by my own petard. but how like this????
Checking behind isn't that bad really because you probably have a 2 street value hand. Although just because of the board you might be better off to bet turn before a bad card comes on the river which could lose you some value, such as a heart, or a J,Q,A or T, or half the deck I guess.

I don't think it's right, but I am not certain on that. I think he has to either forward motion or say "call" or "all in".

How bad is this fold?
Everything Tyson said. Standard 3 bet preflop. As played a standard fold on the flop for any solid player after 2 all ins on the flop and another player still to act behind you.

River decision: check behind or jam for value?
It's actually kind of not that great to jam river on that run out, the only worse hands he is likely to call with are weaker aces, and it's less likely he has one of those since the ace came on the turn and he called the flop. If the ace came on the flop instead, then yeah is definitely jam river
