K high flush beated again
Looks like villain has nut flush or 87dd/54dd and is hoping you'll hero call with Kd. Fold. He could think he can blow you off a 5 flush board, but doesn't seem as likely to me. Also, raise pre don't limp -- you'll be more profitable raising hands pre than limping them. Bet flop, top pair + K high flush draw is a great board for you.

can you become great without multitabling online ?
It's going to be difficult to have a good hourly rate if you're 1 tabling. So no, I don't think it can be done. At a min, you should aim for 4-6.

is this a standard shove
Very standard. No other options in this situation If I had to guess, I bet you missed a lot of good shove/reshove/steal spots leading up to this hand. If you're questioning JJ, you almost definitely are not shoving in late position with the range of hands you should be.

Do we have fold equity v AGG villian
Agree with you strug. Also, my experience is that people 3x'ing are not opening 22-55 -- the 3x/4x crowd tends to play a fairly weak game with a lot of limping...so I'd expect 22-55 to be more in a limping range than an opening range. That said, it's obviously villain specific and depends on this particular villain, but in game, I'd be comfortable drawing that conclusion

ATC?
No, shove chart is more like ~50% of hands. If the blinds won't call correctly, you can profitably expand that, but only to 65-70% of hands or so. At least the bottom 25% is a fold, and quite possibly the bottom 35-45%

Do we have fold equity v AGG villian
Agreed. The other thing to note is that villain 3x'd. Against a 3x, I'd expect a narrower opening range than is standard, which makes a shove here very unlikely to get through. Definitely fold vs the EP/MP open. It gets closer vs a 3x from the CO/BTN, but even that is read dependent.

How bad did I mess up here?
You need a more precise description of jenin if you want good advice. "Control the table" and "bullying around" are subjective phrases that mean different things to different people. Objective facts like HUD stats and or specific lines the villain had taken and their showdown hands would allow others to provide constructive advice on this spot. Calling the 5bb shove is standard. The question is between call, reraise or shove. As a basic starting point, I wouldn't expect many people to jam over my flat. I'd expect some bluffs that will 3b/f and some strong hands that will 3b/c. The ...

Ak bad fold pre?
If you're worried about the 4x raise being KK+, flatting pre is going to be better than 3b/f. That said, unless you see someone limping/3x'ing most of the time and then 4x'ing rarely, I wouldn't assume a 4x = KK+. Quite often people that don't play as often will just 4x their entire opening range.

How should I play this hand here? $25 super stack 5 max
3b vs flat depends on reads/dynamics. Against a standard reg, I prefer 3b/c...but only if said villain has either a wide 4b range or folds to a high % of 3bs. I'd rather not 3b if he's going to only 4b value hands or hood a really wide range since 77, even when IP, is going to be tricky to play vs anyone competent given stack sizes. As played, I'd flat flop and reevaluate turn. The 3b makes sense given it's a multiway pot and mildly wet -- especially vs a BB defend range. I hate raising flop and then facing a BB shove and having to fold -- also, raising flop puts a ton of chips into the ...

Is this a fold
Raise flop -- his donk bet on that board screams a draw. On the turn, bet more like 65-75% of pot instead of 35-40%. As played, probably a fold with no more reads. The river is the least important spot in this hand -- make sure you play the flop and turn correctly to avoid this river situation.

call river vs donk bet flop/turn
The only time you could fold is on the river since sets, flush draws and most Kx hands that donk all 3 streets beat you. But...you're getting 6:1 to call and enough random junk shows up that a call there is fine. You played it fine. That said, agree with Clutch that your ranges probably need some refining. That's a very wide range for a sb flat

22$ 6 max non-turbo's
100 is more for MTTs. For non turbo SNGs, you shouldn't need more than 50 buyins. For super tubos, you definitely need more. Expected ROI is a key determinant of BRM for SNGs, so having an idea of that would allow you to develop a better estimate of what you need.

Live hand...strange spot....
Fold pre: the 3b vs an EP open has KQ crushed AND you're going to play the entire hand oop AND the EP raise can still repop Fold flop: you're drawing to a gutter. you're oop, so bluffing is going to be very difficult Turn: played this street perfectly River: i really prefer c/c or c/r over leading out. villain is going to value bet all his Ax hands on the river (and boats). He may also stab with missed draws. checking allows his missed draws to bluff. the only hands you might lose some value from are QQ/KK that checks back river, but he might even fold those to a bet... c/c or c/r depends ...

Sticky villain or am I a spewtard?
Using that range, 13.7% of hands are opened and 66+ is ~4% of those (technically even less since 6x and 7x reduce those combos in half). That means villain misses 70%. Leading the turn is great because villain is likely to cbet most of those overcard combos. When villain calls turn, the questions becomes two fold: (1) how often does he float the 70% that missed the board and will fold river and (2) does he ever fold any of his pairs vs our line. I'd say there's some floats in his range and he'll fold his overpairs at least some of the time. Can't check the math at the moment, but pretty ...

FT Bubble - What's our play?
with regards to snapping...the other thing to realize is that most good players have a plan before any action occurs. In villains spots at a FT bubble, I'm thinking about who I'm flatting, who I'm 3betting, who I'm folding to and who I'll r/c or r/f to before any action occurs. As a result, by the time action is on me, every decision is a snap since my mind is made up (although I may delay just for appearances...)

fold vs shove river
fwiw, I don't mind folding river. I don't worry about spots like this because the river can be avoided through taking the optimal line on the turn. Once you put yourself into an awkward spot, it's pretty close. If you're a volume grinder and don't recognize villain, I generally just assume he's a fish and snap it off in low buyins. But those are also at the bottom of my buyin range and I don't care if I bust and have to fire up another...

Sticky villain or am I a spewtard?
Sorry, misread HH. I actually like your line a lot. You generally c/r flop with club draws, so the turn lead + river jam reps a very strong hand. The 6 hitting the board isn't the greatest card for you though. It counterfeits the 2pr hands in your range and makes some combos less likely. Nonetheless, I like the line. This only needs to work ~40% to be profitable. I think you get folds often enough for it to be profitable. That said...you probably get looked up ~50% of the time, so it's going to fail fairly often.

Sticky villain or am I a spewtard?
Pretty spewy. Fold pre. Opening MP+1 with Q9o isn't going to be profitable unless you have a very, very nitty table. Your EP opening range doesn't include many 8x hands, which makes repping a straight difficult. You have a lot more club draws in your range, so the river is an easy call for the villain with 7x or better. Also, that's the type of board that hits villains hand pretty well when's he defending the big blind. After he calls flop and the turn improves his range and doesn't improve your received range, I'd shut down. I don't see a double barrel pushing much off this hand, unless ...

AK in BB versus UTG Aggro?
Pretty absurd to say don't give me a spiel about don't 3b/f AK. It's not spiel. It's not tedious. It's fundamental poker theory and easily proven by math and logic. Very easy 3b/5b spot. 3b/f AK when 30bbs effective is unfathomable. There's no story villain can ever/will ever tell where that line is optimal. And to tell people not to discuss it because you're sick of hearing is a sign of a fundamental weakness in your game. This isn't a 100bb effective cash game hand. This is a 30bb effective MTT hand. There's one option once you 3b, and that's to gii. Anything else is foolish. 1) I ...

Which should i spend more time on?
You need to find the right balance. Hearing concepts discussed in a video is very different from applying those concepts when playing 8, 10, 12, 16 tables. Videos are worthless unless you can absorb AND apply the material in game. A lot of times mass multi tabling is muscle memory, so being cognizant of the things you want to do and applying those things is a conscious effort. Watching the video alone doesn't get you over the line. My advice is watch videos and review your own HHs. Once you've identified a few clear leaks you want to plug, put in volume and always be looking to improve in ...

ITM.....Getting Short
Agree with KB. I generally shove with 13bbs in that spot since it looks pretty strong to open on your stack. I don't really have a r/f range from that position with that stack, so open shoving is the best option for me. That said, there are times where a r/c is better, based on the specific players behind you

Mtt KTS turn, what to do?
One additional thing to consider: I doubt you have as many outs as you assume. In spots like this, there's a good chance one of the other two players has at least 1 of your outs, which means you have a couple percent less equity making this even more of a fold.

PP's out of position
15-20:1 for setmining. 20:1 is best. You can slightly move that down towards 15:1 in certain circumstances (e.g., in position vs a bad player that overvalues his hands). I'd generally just fold in this spot, whether its a MTT or SNG. Not many people are 3betting worse hands, so it's primarily TT+, AK...sometimes AQ. You'd need a read that villain 3bs his marginal hands -- like off suit broadway hands -- in order to want to shove here. But against a normal range, a shove here it pretty awful since at best you're flipping and you're dominated by a lot of over pairs. Also, if villain did have ...
