Playing a ‘way ahead, way behind’ hand
bet/bet/bet is the only acceptable line here. agree with rungood as played...just don't get into this spot. you made the river really difficult since you're now donking the river into the turn aggressor. i'd be worried about a check behind and missing tons of value, so i'd b/decide. Probably a b/f since only worse hand that could conceivably raise is KT

Need answers to two questions.
You're basically asking "how do I play postflop vs people that flat the blinds", which isn't really an addressable topic in a forum post. I could literally talk about that for hours depending on the type of player, your hand, flop texture, stack sizes, etc. Only advice I can really give is what I wrote above in the last paragraph. If you're playing any halfway competent, stop thinking about your hand and instead thinking about villains range, his perception of you, his perception of your range, how he'll react to various bet sizes, what your turn/river plan is, etc. A cbet is entirely ...

Hand History Vital Issue
If it's a tournament, pretty easy to tell if the hand by hand the info (stacks, pot sizes, etc) doesn't line up. If it's cash, probably the same applies with stack sizes by table. But I don't know of any foolproof way of telling.

Need answers to two questions.
1) Stealing is a large part of the game. With a post ante pot size of ~2.5bbs, a min-raise steal needs to work on average 44% of the time to be profitable. With a 3x raise, it needs to work 55% of the time. That's a 25% increase in the success rate, which results in needed to change your steal range considerably. In addition, stack sizes in MTTs are generally short. If you are a decent post-flop player, you'd rather have the ability to make moves on turns/rivers instead of just flops and maybe turns. Smaller preflop sizing results in larger SPRs providing more room to maneuver throughout ...

4 Bet pot, against a villain who seems to have somewhat of a vandetta against me
^^ Exactly. You could have bet 25% of pot and villain likely would have folded KQo. Yes, it's pretty bad. But it's not surprising given his 3b sizing. People like that are not smart, thinking players. In his shoes, I'd only flat there with KK+. I'd 3b/f a wide range, flat most decent playable hands instead of 3betting, and 3b/5b the rest. In his shoes, I'd flat KQo pre. If I did 3b it, the intent would be 3b/5b assuming you would 4b light a decent % of the time. Given how you wide 4b, in his shoes, I'd actually 3b/5b very wide in this spot. If I didn't expect a wide 4b range from you, I'd ...

Final two tables of $25 - $3,000 GTD this morning on FTP
b/c turn. There's not many Qx hands in his range and he can still have some draws that don't raise flop but will jam turn. Reason I don't like checking is that there are too many bad river cards for you. Diamonds and 5x-Tx are all bad cards. If he got hood with hands like K9s, A9s, etc, there's even more potential scare cards. Overall, it's at least 20 cards which is 40-45% of rivers that will bring a potential scare card. If you include some additional overcards, it's over 50%. As played, I'd probably just sigh fold river tbh. I'd expect a lot of flush draws to have FD + over and raise ...

AQ in raised pot...ever a fold here?
Population read at this limit is that they overplay top pair, overplay flush draws, and over protect when there are any potential draws on the board. As a result, I'd call here every time since I'd expect worse Ax hands and flush draws in addition to some hands that beat you -- like 2 pair and sets. Overall, calling should be profitable.

Final table of $50 super stack 7.5K GTD on Full Tilt
I don't really think you have any other options here tbh. Flatting is terrible, so it's either r/c or r/f. Villain has a massive stack, you have the perfect stack to handcuff, villain is competent, and there are no short stacks behind villain that he's committed to calling off. It's the perfect recipe for a light 3b, especially if he assumes you're exploitable and are opening wider than you should (and you should be opening super tight). I don't see any other viable options than 3b/c. Only other option I'd even consider here is limp/call, but there's a number of issues with that ...

Official Bankroll Management Thread
Your bankroll should be defined by how much money you're willing to spend on poker. Whether you have $1 on poker sites and $9999 in the bank allocated to poker or $9999 on sites and $1 in your bank, your "bankroll" is $10k. If you're willing to reload the money you have behind, I'd consider it part of your bankroll. You should use the general rule of thumb of ~200 buyins and adjust your ABI as your bankroll increases/decreases. There are a ton of good articles on this, so I'd just read up if you want more info.

Official Bankroll Management Thread
Daily basis isn't the right way to look at it. It's about number of tournaments, not number of days. With your bankroll, I'd recommend a $15 ABI. If you're less risk averse and willing to gamble a little, you could justify a $20-25 ABI, but that won't provide much of a cushion.

Why are you so afraid of your government? The poker players association is failing.
Poker players won't make online poker legal. A grassroots movement isn't going to accomplish anything at the national level. It's going to take casinos and/or state governments looking for tax revenue to make it happen.

4 Bet pot, against a villain who seems to have somewhat of a vandetta against me
Based on 3b sizing, villain looks like a fish. Anybody with a 4x 3b in position either thinks you're super exploitable or is a fish. Given his 3b sizing, you should only be continuing with JJ+, AK here for value and maybe an occasional bluff with a weak Axs hands. Although, I'd usually just fold oop rather than 4b bluff, it's just too expensive and the profitability of any light 4b is highly debatable (fyi - this is simply because of his 3b sizing). I also find that people that 3b that large don't have a light 3b range and will 3b/c far more often than 3b/f. edit: what's your plan with the ...

The villain in the hand is not the original opener. It's the big blind, which changes his range a ton.

7 handed FT big $4.40
This is a spot where reads are critical. Commenting on a FT spot with ICM implications can't be done without any context, so any advice you get here is going to be, at best, mediocre. Villain is opening 7 handed into several hands that can handcuff him and a couple reshove stacks. As a result, his range should be tight (which is why reads are important in this spot...). There's very little I'd 3b/f without any reads on his opening frequency. In fact, against a good player playing at a table of decent players, I wouldn't have a 3b/f range (and therefore only a reshove range). My reshove ...

range for inducing UTG+1 $1 rebuy
I don't really follow what you're asking about. It's a $1r 6max MTT with shallow stacks during the rebuy period. I'd imagine most hands that shove over your limp are going to reshove vs a standard open. The hands you ran into are surely ones that will get it in regardless of your initial action. With respect to higher stakes -- you have to isolate rebuy vs non rebuy situations. In rebuys, player is generally looser and more people gamble to build a big stack early on. I wouldn't attempt to design a limping strategy for non-rebuy situations based on what happens in rebuys. The limp/trap line ...

Barrel the turn or check behind?
I'd bet turn. There are 2 (and a half) main reasons: 1) You can get villain to fold hands that beat you such as 8x, 99, TT and, depending on the river, even some weaker Jx hands (like JT). Checking back turn and betting river won't get those hands to fold very often, which means you'll win the pot much less often 2) It builds the pot so when you do make your hand (any diamond, 7x, Tx and maybe 9x), which will happen ~30% of the time, you can get max value from 2pair, sets and stronger Jx hands. 2.5) Betting is more fun than checking

Laddering up with ICM decisions
You have two options in this hand. 1) Shove preflop. It's the correct ICM play and unexploitable. If you don't want to r/c, this is absolutely the only other viable option. 2) r/c from the button. I quickly looked at ICMizer, and from an ICM perspective, you should only r/c JJ/QQ+, depending on his reshove range. Even if villain is reshoving ATC, it's technically the wrong ICM decision to r/c with your hand. I may have something input wrong though because I was doing it hurriedly. Anyway, it seems as if r/c is not the optimal option, so you should just shove pre. I'd probably r/c in that ...

Small ball in online tournaments, esp turbo tournies
Turbos are all about playing a strong push/fold game. Your approach seems focused on "small ball" which isn't ideal for turbos given that it's all about understanding how/when to shove, reshove and call shoves. Start playing around with tools described above by carl and it'll help immensely.

Both of these spots are unlucky. Villians playing trash like that is going to be good for you in the long-run. As Clarkson said, if you raise more preflop you'll get more HU or 3 way pots, which is going to be better than playing 4 or 5way pots

The Benjamin, $100 Super Stack MTT 12/15/20 minute blind levels
Agree with the above re: the flop decision. I have a bigger issue with your preflop hand selection. It's not a good flat. In a 4 way pot with Q7, you can't flop a straight or straight draw and 1 pair is rarely going to be good. The hand narrows your postflop options to 2pr+. I'd look at flopzilla to understand if the hands you're selecting can really be profitable. I think there's about 5% of flops that you're doing well on (flopped flush, 2 pr, trips or better) and maybe 10% where you pick up a flush draw. Those combined aren't good enough to make a flat here profitable, especially ...

Feedback on the postflop play, and advice on villains turn shove
I'd just flat the flop. Most people cbet really wide. At those stakes, most people don't double barrel without a hand. I'd call flop and reevaluate turns/rivers. As played, I'd fold to the flop 3b and turn shove. I think you have a hand that's ahead a lot of the time and has show down value. But as played, you bloated the pot unnecessarily and made the hand overly complicated. For the extra chips you invested on the flop, you probably could have flatted turn and got to the same place edit: fwiw, 4b shoving flop is better than flatting the 3b
