Un-real run on FTP
I feel I can relate to your post because I have been running bad all 2014, I was losing a lot of key pots and feel I have just been crushed by the deck. I did stop playing for a while and recently had a look at my game and found some problems and have adjusted, so I'm confident it will pick back up, hopefully sooner rather than later. My mindset is the best ever now, and bad beats don't tilt me like they used to. Run bad is not new to me because I also ran terrible for the first half of 2013 but did pick up in the last half of the year. I think you identified one of your leaks and that is ...

PokerStars Froze $600 from me (because I didn't submit verification documents)
They will when you try to cash out a large amount. They want these docs for security reasons and to protect the players from scam accounts. Stars are trustworthy I don't think you need to be concerned with sending in the docs.

flopped set turn line?
I think you can bet closer to half pot at least on flop because you are expected to cbet and might not get much credit so he might call with smaller pairs or an ace. Turn depends on the player, against passive player def bet, aggro player you can check to induce. River - I like a big river bet as played since the turn went check Check. Against a passive player I like bet bet bet though for sure.

Just want to check this spot
Thanks for the advice guys. It helps just to check if other players are taking this spot. I ended up calling and was in a flip with 2 smaller pairs, didnt work out this time but if it did I would have had 100bbs which would give me a more playable stack.

Playing AK and QQ in the early levels on aggressive table.
If you are not happy getting stacks in pre, then you can just flat. I dont mind flatting these sorts of hands pre when super deep, it disguises your hand strength and keeps in your opponents worse hands.

Snap call... Right?!
Tyson pretty much said it, call and take the small edge because with only 18bbs its very likely a better spot wont come and you will just blind off.

Passive play getting me nowhere; thoughts on this hand please
Edit: miss read the hand. Easy turn call. On the river it looks very strong I would let it go since it looks like he's going for max value

Thoughts??
Not a good preflop raise with your stack size, and bad sizing too. If stacks were deeper, you could raise it to isolate the limper, but not that big. Try raising 2.5-3x the big blind over 1 limper - but again, its not good to raise at all with your stack size, unless you're shoving. The reason raising is not good is because your stack size is not big enough to play post flop, meaning that when you go to the flop, you don't have much room to manuever. If you miss the flop and c-bet and the guy calls, you have already put in half your stack. So the only time this is going to work out for you is ...

Just want to check this spot
I have 35bbs and raise the cutoff with AKo, small blind shoves 25bbs pretty quickly, then Big blind thinks before shoving 35bb effective over the top. I give SB a range of 66+, AJ+ and KQs since its 25bbs, and I give the BB a range of 77-TT and AQ...I did not think he could have a super premium just based on timing, JJ+ or AK would be fist-pump reshoves in his spot and he did tank slightly which seems like he wasn't too excited. I called off because I think I'm ahead of both their ranges. My question is should we be calling off in this spot, or is it too high variance since we have to beat ...

$55 FT - QTs Flat IP 50bbs effective - Can we value bet river after pot controlling?
What range do we expect villain to show up with taking this line' -He leads flop and then checks down turn and river after it blanks out, so I'd expect that he didnt connect too strongly with the board. Hands like AQ, AT, A8, JQ, 77, 99, QQ, JJ, and small pairs could show up. I dont think this is a good board run out for him to keep barrelling, so I think his check range is polarised in that he could easily have nothing and shut down after the flop, or has showdown value. If he had a King he should value bet the river. Do we expect villain to value bet a range we lose to after we check back ...

Final table - unusual ICM spot - lost at sea - help
If your finding plenty of spots, then I dont think folding is a bad idea, since you are at the final table with a lot of chips and do you really need to risk it on a flip. On a tough table where you have no edges then its definitely a call.

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.
