Micro cash: set V set (no hand)
I can't imagine pot controlling or folding in micro cash. Most people tend to overvalue overpairs + top pairs allowing you to stack them with a set. If you're playing more competent players, you can slow down with a set in certain spots since the range of hands you're going to get value from is extremely thin. But the average micro cash player is going to give you max value when they have overpairs, TPTK, etc, so I'd go for max value every time and chalk it up to a cooler when its set over set.

78cc flop monster draw.
Flat pre is marginal. I don't hate it, but it's not going to be very profitable. On the flop, I'd definitely raise since you don't want any scare cards to come up and slow down the action since you have so much equity on the flop. For flop sizing, I want to set up a turn PSB if villain flats. I'd go about 900-950 which gives you slightly less than pot on the turn.

have i played this hand correctly ??
AQ - reads would be helpful on the iso'er. I don't mind flatting here given how deep you are. As played, I'd always shove the river. If villain has a set, it's a cooler. Turn is debatable. You can bet small on turn to get value from Ax hands that decide to pot control as well as Qx hands that might not believe you have the Ax. Checking back turn might keep some bluffs in villains range, but it's an odd line to bet/check/bluff, so I don't expect there to be too many river bluffs. As a result, I'd probably bet turn to get as much value as possible from the hand. KT - either flat or raise more ...

Middle~Late Stage MTT question.
I fold 22-77 in those spots and sometimes 88. You don't have the right odds to set mine. If you get flatted, it's going to be very difficult to play your hand -- especialyl since you'll be oop most of the time. If you get raised, you're going to have to fold. So opening in those spots is usually burning money.

Not Sure What To do??
The issue is that if you're playing MTTs at $0.50 and $1, the field sizes are probably massive. The bankroll rule of thumb of approx 100 buyins isn't sufficient when field sizes are in the thousands, so you really need to be playing either smaller fields (think 180s and/or capped MTTs) or even lower stakes.

What do I do with AK here
Well...he can't be all that solid if he's 5x'ing, so I disagree with your assessment. EDIT: well...i guess there's 2 limpers, so seems fine depending on stacks Get it in since you have some FE and are doing good enough against his range. It only pays 3, so you're going to need to chip up if you want to cash/win.

River bluff catcher
I prefer to 3b or fold preflop as well. The reason is that playing A7s OOP is difficult, results in a lot of tricky situations, and won't be profitable in the long-run against anyone who isn't terrible. It doesn't have much to do with the big blind -- it's really because we're either behind the opening range and should fold or, if we're ahead, it's hard to extract value OOP and it's easy to value own ourselves since we're often going to only get into river spots where we get snap folds or calls by better hands. With respect to 3b pre, how often were you 3betting' If you're getting 4b alot, ...

Tried to punish a constant limper, but it backfired.
Pretty much agree with the above. The one thing I'd note is that if the villain has a really high fold to cbet stat (70%+), I'd bet 35% pot and hope to take it down. Your plan is a good one, but you got a board that makes it really difficult to take it down postflop and it's usually time to just give it up

bankroll strategy question
Simply put, you should maximize your profit. If moving up stakes on one site > adding more sites, then just move up. I'd guess that playing more sites will be better since you can keep your ABI more clustered around your BRM goal and add more tables than you're currently playing which should be more profitable than taking a more risky BRM approach of playing higher buyins.

Awkward/Horrible Bubble Spot with JJ
I tend to flat JJ in your position there. There's not many worse hands that are going to r/c your shove (maybe 99/TT, AQ). Given the stacks behind you, it's a great spot to flat pre and let people with the 12-20bbs stacks behind reshove and you can easily snap it off. If everyone else folds, you keep the villains range really wide and can extract value postflop from his weaker hands. As played, in villains shoes I'd discount the top of your range, so AK actually does pretty well and I'd call in his position.

KQs OTB big draw facing aggression
I agree with shoving pre -- there's ~1300 in the middle and you have fold equity + good enough equity against calling ranges. As played, I'd shove here. You have nut flush draw + gutshot, which gives you great equity against all but hands like sets -- so against an overall range you're going to have more than enough equity to get it in on the flop here

Turbo strategy
yeah, as said above it's all about shoving/reshoving/calling shoves & reshoves profitably. Beyond that, there's not much more play except in early levels. Postflop play and set mining usually go out the window after the first few levels

FT 99 facing early open from perceived donk
I'd shove the nines. If he's been opening 3x all the time and has been opening a good bit recently, you're going to be doing well against against his range, especially since he'll fold a good bit. There's only one really short stack, so I'd rather take the chance for a double early at the FT and put yourself in a position for a deep run rather than wait for a better spot and partially blind out.

Hand review final table WCOOP $100+$100+$15 No Limit Super KO
You start the hand with 20bbs, so either shove pre or fold. Given the ICM implications and payjumps in a WCOOP, I'm fine with either option -- it just depends on game flow and the villain that 3b you. FWIW, him showing up with 22 there is surprising, I'd fold 22 in his spot.

$33 10k gtd final table first hand
Hard to provide advice without all the stacks -- both those involved in the hand and the rest for ICM considerations. Preflop is obviously fine. I'd bet 35-40% pot on that flop. It's really unlikely anyone has 99+ since the aggro player would 3b and the flatters would squeeze. You shouldn't be too worried about draws. There's no flush draws on the board. T7 probably isn't flatting pre. So the only draw out there is JT and floats with Ax/Kx (or hands like T9, J9, T8, etc). Your QQ blocks 2 of the 8 outs JT is drawing to, so there's only a ~12.5% chance villain can complete the draw on the ...

Hand in Pokerstars 2.20$+R 6Kwas my check back so BAD?
I'd just bet the flop. The button flat is either fishy or super strong -- if he's fishy, that board should hit his range. If he's trapping, you have a set and have him crushed. A board like that is going to hit a lot of flatting ranges from the button + the big blind and, especially vs the big blind, you want to build the pot now to ensure it's an easy shove on the river. There's plenty of hands they'll check raise or check call with on that board and there's not going to be very many pure bluffs given the stack sizes. As played, it's just unlucky. Checking back the flop isnt necessarily ...

Flips make me sick.........
Relative stacks don't influence my decision -- meaning that whether I cover the villain or he covers me, it doesn't really change the situation, unless it's a special circumstance (i.e., right on a money bubble with tons of short stacks about to bust). Tournament life is an idea/phrase/concept that I personally hate and don't like letting my horses/students use it. The goal of a tournament isn't to survive, it's to win. Winning requires -- accumulating chips. There's other ways to "avoid" flips -- if you're 30-35bbs+, you don't have 3b/c with your medium strength hands in spots that will ...

tough spot with 10s on final table of nightly 5.50 3k
Agree with Village and Clarkson. I'd flat my value range here most of the time unless villain had a wide 4b/f range (in which case we should 3b to 5b since he's going to fold to the 5b a huge % of the time). But he'd have to 4betting light here 65-75% of the time or more for me to want to 3b/5b.

Facing donk and second barrel from nit TPGK
idk man...enough people spaz that I can't fold that turn - especially if you've been active. I peel turn and fold river if he bets again. I realize he's a rock, but if that's 66 hands at 10/20 to 100/200, it's possible that he's just really tight pre ante and might be a very TAG player and not a super rock. There's really not much in his range that you should beat, but I don't think you can rule out a stupid line at these stakes often enough to find a fold on the turn. I suppose there's nothing wrong with folding since I don't think it's going to be all that profitable to call and getting ...

Flips make me sick.........
No offense, but your AA example is stupid. But to answer it, yes I'd fold since I think ICM makes it fold since you'd get 5-8 ladders automatically and AA vs 8 hands isn't going to win that often. Anyway, I realize you just threw in a random example and I won't give you any more crap about it. On to the actual question...it's a simple yet complicated question. In short, yes, part of playing tournaments is realizing that you're going to have to get into a lot of allin situations with between 40 and 60% equity. You have to win flips to win tournaments. That said, there's a few things worth ...

Bustout hand on the bubble of venetian bigstack
Yeah, agree that it's a good jam. In very rare circumstances, I could rationalize a r/f but only if the remaining players were super tight and would NEVER shove without TT+, AK and also would rarely flat. It's just too rare to get those situations, so should be shoving 95%+ of the time
