60K $1+R Turbo 3X late stage post bubble burst guidelines
You should look into push/fold charts to help with when to shove preflop. With respect to calling, the best advice is to always be working on ranging opponents and deciding how your hand plays against their range. That's a combination of villain tendencies, position, stacks, etc.In addition to push/fold charts, there are charts for calling shoves, which might give you insight on what you can call with when short stacked and facing bets/shoves. It's important to note that those are based on the opponents shoving correctly, which often isn't the case. But it gives you a good starting point.

Hand Advice #2
River bet looks a bit weak betting 755 into ~2300. Depending on the player, that might make them a bit more likely to bluff if they perceive it as a weak bet on that board. Other than that, looks fine. Flop and turn are standard. On the river, it's a pretty dirty board with QJ and clubs getting there. There's not a lot to get value from -- T9, KT, AT, maybe A9. It's a spot where it's game flow dependent as to whether to c/c, c/f or b/f.

4 handed vs Btn open.
Shove. It's puts a lot of pressure on the button given icm implications, especially with him being 2nd in chips. I really don't like inducing here since his light 4b range is going to include a lot small pairs and weak Ax hands that would fold to a shove.

You need to provide some context on the hand if you want to know if folding is ok. In general, definitely not. In rare circumstances, maybe. Is this online or live' What's the buyin' What's the buyin relative to your bankroll' How was the villain opening' What's his standard opening size'

Live Hand: WSOPc Cherokee $1675 Main Event - River thoughts?
Saving money here isn't a question. We have the nuts on the turn with a flush draw as well. There's a ~25% the board pairs and the only thing we need to be concerned with then is whether villain boated up -- something that shouldn't impact our turn line. The big question on the turn is what get us more value: flatting turn with the intent to raise river or raising turn with the intent of betting river' I prefer raising turn. It definitely makes our hand look stronger, but at the same time we'll keep sets, 2 pairs and maybe even some 1 pr + combo draw hands in the pot (AK, AQ, KJ, QJ, KT, ...

Made Day 2 Council Bluffs WSOPc Re entry!
Good luck. You've got a couple short stacks at the table that you can't r/f too, so I wouldn't open too light into them. There are definitely some stacks that are susceptible to pressure, but your stack isn't really big enough to make more than 1-2 moves. I'd probably see how the table is playing, steal blinds when you can (especially since the antes are so large) and hope to chip up early. With 40 minute levels, it'll go fast, so hope for some good spots early on to continue chipping up.

poker hud needed?
Since you can get a free trial, it's 100% worth trying. Poker is a game of imperfect information. HUDs provide information, so using one probably isn't go to do anything but help. That said, using a HUD improperly can also hurt you...but that's just something to learn over time.

Push/Fold Charts
I understand what you're trying to do, but there isn't a resource out there (that I know of) that accomplishes it. Figuring out nash ranges is pretty easy. Figuring out adjustments, testing them and being confident what you're doing is profitable is not. My guess is that if anyone has done this, they haven't shared (I personally wouldn't).

Live Hand: WSOPc Cherokee $1675 Main Event - River thoughts?
I'd definitely bet the river. It seems rather odd for villain to c/c flop after opening pre on that board with a set or even JT. I could see him going for pot control on a rather wet board oop with hands like KJ/QJ/AT or even AJ. Leading the turn seems like a value bet -- so I can see him having something like AK or AQ as well. There are definitely some boats in his range, but I also think there's a number of hands we beat. I'd b/f river, but probably size it a bit smaller in case he does have Ax and we can get thin value from most of his range and still be fairly confident he's not ...

500r Borgata Spring poker open thoughts?
I'd shove too. People who want to make day 2 just to say they made day 2 probably aren't the people to take advice from. You hand 25bbs and AK vs an aggro opponent who has a light 3b range, folding would not be good here. The only thing to point out is that it's a large 3b and I don't see him folding very often to you shove since the price would be too good. As a result, his 3b range might not be as wide as in other situations. Nonetheless, it's still a good spot to shove and I'd have played it the same.

Very standard shove spot. Rarely folding (never calling). Only way I'd consider folding instead of shoving is if there were ICM/bubble situations.

Hand advice please:
Shove preflop with your stack. You shouldn't have a r/f range very often with 12bbs, so there's not much of a point in not shoving most of your range (you can make an argument for r/c vs certain players that won't notice you're only doing it when really strong). As played, first of all -- he called you with 12bb effective stacks. I wouldn't imagine very many people flatting pre and folding postflop in that spot. Second, your line doesn't look strong. If you had a really strong hand and were showing "trap strength" you'd flat the flop bet and just allow him to barrel off on subsequent ...

Unlucky or Overplay?
1) Reading those HHs is painful. Either do the traditional UTG, UTG+1, etc. or leave the names in tact. Plenty of people post HHs without worries about showing names. Especially for those standard spots where it's just flips. 2) Posting bust hands actually isn't a great way to review. Generally, most bust hands are either flips, coolers or bad beats. Unless you're recklessly spewing, posting/reviewing bust hands isn't going to help you improve. 3) From the HHs posted, it seems like you're often short stacked. There were multiple hands where you had

215 Wcoop Sunday Million (SE)
Yeah...you're asking the wrong question. It should be: would it have been better to 4b or flat to extract more value from my hand. Flatting to "avoid an A" is the wrong mindset and will do you a lot of disservice in the long-run. This is simply a bad beat -- the time to post this hand would be if villain folded to your shove and you missed value.

Button range with 25bb stack against 10bb mid position shove?
Without looking at Nash ranges, I'd call with 55/66+, A8s+, ATo+, KQ If villain is shoving correctly, Nash range is close to: 22+,A2s+,A8o+,K7s+,KTo+,Q9s+,QJo,J8s,JTo,T8s,98s,87s. You can profitably call with: 44+,A8s+,A9o+,KQs. Villain is playing a 19/15, which seems like a competent reg, so I'd assume he's shoving fairly close to nash. I'd probably still stick with my range, but expanding it a little bit to include the full nash range seems fine. In any event, 77 is a snap there.

Playing out of position
I don't play a whole lot of cash games. But I don't fully agree with your logic of never folding. In certain cases, you can easily snap fold those hands while in others never folding is best. It's going to depend on 6max vs full ring, position the person is opening from, effective stacks and opponent tendencies. There's a number of options though. You can 3b preflop. You can flat pre and c/r certain flops. You can flat flop and lead turn. You can flat flop and c/r turn. I mean, there are endless possibilities. It all depends on how often people are cbetting flop, how often they cbet turn, ...

Playing out of position
Are you talking about cash games or MTTs' There's a big difference between the two. When you said standard 3x raise, I'd guess cash games since most MTT players move to a standard 2x open fairly early in the blinds, but want to make sure before responding.

NL 10 6max ZOOM Set OOP Turn Bet size? Rivered scary card
It's a spot where if villain bets river, there's not many bluffs. He's going to value bet sets, flushes, straight (if JT still there) and check behind most 1 pair hands. There's not really much air in his range. Depending on player, he might value bet or check behind 2 pair (this is spot where he should be betting 2 pr, but hard to say). Since villain isn't going to be bluffing very often into us, I'd much rather b/f or b/c. If we bet, we still get value from all 2 pair hands, maybe some 1 pair hands (but that's unlikely). We'll get raised by most flushes and depending on the player, either ...

good chop? or not?
I wouldn't have taken the deal to be honest (as CL or as 2nd place). From a pure ICM standpoint, your stack was worth 2945. With deep stacks and it being a live tournament, I'd feel fairly confident I have a skill edge and would want to continue playing unless I got significantly more than ICM numbers. Chip chop would have given you ~$3200 I think. At a min, I'd want $3k in your spot. That said, if the table wouldn't accept any other deal and locking up 2.6k vs risking getting 4th for only 1.2k, and you're happy with it, that's all that matters.

Advice on replaying hands vs coaching
I personally find the best way to review is to go through an entire hand history in the replayer. It helps you identify spots where you did something well (and should repeat in the future), spots you might have missed, hands you misplayed, value bets that you failed to make, etc. In terms of videos/review, both are important. If you can't spot leaks in your own game, watching videos will be better. But...if you only watch videos you might understand the lessons but fail to realize that you're not implementing what's being said. My advice would be to watch a video and think about the 3-5 key ...

Middle set on a monoton board 5 handed
I don't see myself ever folding this hand. Nor do I really care about pot control. I prefer a check raise since people are going to be betting their flushes, most overpairs, and most draws (at least Ac, maybe Kc). With the dead money in the pot and at a min 35% equity against flopped flushes, our hands plays well enough to get it in. I understand your logic behind leading here, but once you lead, it narrows the villains range. People are less likely to raise/stab at the pot with overpairs, Qx, and some flush draws and by narrowing their range, you end up getting it in against a stronger ...

Folding a baby set
I'm not so sure about the river. Do you expect villain to ever shove worse than bottom set' The only hands he could conceivably have are poorly played QQ+ (which I really doubt he check raises on the turn) or a pure bluff with the Ah or maybe Kh. Villain has to be "bluffing" (or value shoving worse) ~30% of the time for this to be a profitable call. I don't expect his bluff frequency to be high enough for this to be a profitable call. I don't play much .25/.50, but I wouldn't think the average reg is taking that line as a bluff very often. So the villain either needs to be a complete donk or ...

Big 3.30$ spot - range to shove over with?
Hard to say with no reads. This is a game flow type decision depending on how often utg+2 is opening and how the button is playing. Sometimes TT+, AK is best while other times you can go as wide at 77+, AQ+, maybe even wider if people are really spazzing out in the big 3. If you only had the 15bb button shove, same applies. If he's shoving correctly (which i doubt anyone in the big 3 is), you can call with 22+, Ax and broadway. However, a lot of people tend to r/c top of their range with 15bbs and will shove more the medium strength hands and sometimes even r/f the bottom, so that changes ...

AKo live 200nl
I think your play is fine. If seat 3 is really going to call with any draw, you really shouldn't mind if he comes along with only 10-25% equity since you can shove any turn if it checks to you. It's also fine to raise flop and iso seat 4 since it sounds like he'll come along with anything and it's a decent pot to scoop without adding the dead money from seat 3. But overall, you probably just have to fade 6-10 outs on the turn, so the majority of the time your line is fine vs these two.
