The answer is whichever is more profitable. It really depends on a lot of factors. How often does the button open' Flat 3bs' 4b light' What is villains flop cbet' Turn cbet' How good are you postflop vs villain' Are you willing to bluff catch rivers with A high' What's your image and what can you get away with postflop credibly'

Going all-in AQs SSS?
+1 Also, you're not going to become a better poker player while playing 20bb .01/.02 poker. I honestly can't give good advice in the threads you post. You don't include any relevant information on the situation. You also play a style of poker that is far below optimal (e.g., micro stakes short stack poker). Beating the rake is going to be difficult since your upside is capped so much.

I have TPTK and get raised on flop
You said you bet less than half pot -- you bet nearly 65% pot (21k into 31k). I like going a little under half pot. A bigger bet is more likely to keep on Kx and AsXs hands in the pot. A smaller bet keeps some floats, underpairs and worse flush draws in the pot. Once he raises there, I dont think a tight player has KQ/KJ very often unless they're splashy postflop. I think AsXs, AK, sets and (rarely) AA are his range. Against that range, I'd actually rather b/c flop and c/s turn (max value vs draws that might fold flop vs a 3b). edit: once raised on the flop by this villain, my goal is to ...

Short stacked in the Sunday Spark
It's not a shove... If anything, it's a flat before a shove. I haven't looked at the exact math on flatting 4-10bb stacks lately. I think this is good enough to flat and donk shove some flops and c/c other flops (and fold a bunch). But you'd have to play around with flopzilla to see how it would work out. Anyway... fold > flat >>>> shove. And maybe flip the first two...but that requires too much analysis to figure out.

10s .. (60 left in mtt )
You started the hand with 25bbs and a premium pair. Your goal needs to be to get the money in, not slow down for pot control. If villain has JJ+, it's a cooler. I view the turn as irrelevant since we should be betting the flop with the intent of shoving the turn. I wouldn't bother analyzing that situation since it's not you should get into again.

Semi-bluffing flushdraw ss
It doesn't seem very profitable to be playing a 20bb shortstack strategy in a micro cash game. Rake is going to crush you and there's no upside since you'll rarely play a pot big enough to exceed the rake cap. As played, I wouldn't bet the turn. It's a limped micro stakes pot and you probably don't get folds often enough. You're only going to the flush draw ~20% of the time. If you're going to c/f river the rest of the time, this isn't going to be a profitable line.

Curse of AK strikes again
Pre: 3b pre Flop: don't c/r this board. If you're going to c/r, a cib oop is the worst option. Size it bigger since you don't accomplish anything with your reraise. Once villain 3bs the flop, you have to decide whether to shove or fold. There's no other option -- especially when oop. Discussion of the turn is irrelevant since you shouldn't have gotten into this position in the first place. The concept of "not getting involved" because you have a big stack is a bad one. Play each hand to maximize its profitably. Beyond that, nothing else is important. Stacks come and go, all you can focus ...

KJs in BB 12bb deep
Agree with shove pre most of the time here. Occasionally a flat and c/shove is better vs people with really wide opening ranges and very high cbet %s (but your postflop equity will be lower given that more flops will hit their range). Shove pre is going to be profitable I'd really recommend playing around with tools like ICMizer in spots like this. You can make assumptions about opening ranges and calling ranges to see how profitable a shove will be and how wide you can be shoving.

10s .. (60 left in mtt )
It's difficult to answer questions in a complete vacuum. If you want good advice, you need to provide any info possible re: villain and your perceived image. With no info, I'm guessing you're probably not going to 3b/f very often in that spot. As a result, a small 3b with the intent to call usually makes your range look stronger than you'd want it to. I'd recommend a reshove in that spot to make your perceived range look wider. However, if villain is really bad or really aggro and likely to 4b wide, your preflop play is best. You need to bet the flop. You have less than 1.5 pot left ...

33 mp with 7 bb left late in live tourney
Actually, he had sufficient information to make that assessment. Your question was if you should have waited for a better hand than 33. If you're doubting shoving 33 there, you're definitely not going to be shoving a nash range of unexploitable hands nor are you likely to be reshoving correctly. Regardless of the fact, if you're going to post looking for advice just accept it. If might not be relevant, ignore. Getting defensive over free advice is pointless.

11$ Deep Stacks AKs OOP against loose aggresive Player
This really depends on villain specific tendencies. Looking at HUD stats like fold to flop cbet, fold to turn cbet, etc are important in spots like this. Looking at these preflop, before making the 3b, is important to help you figure out your flop, turn and river strategies. Depending on those stats, I'd either b/f turn or c/c, but I'd rarely c/f. There's probably about ~10-20% of villains where a turn c/f is better than any other option.

Getting back to the basics
It all depends on the stakes you play. At the low and mid stakes, abc poker will get it done. If you're not beating those, you shouldn't be playing higher stakes. As you get better and better at playing abc poker, you can start finding spots where you can extend that game and mix it up more. Having solid fundamentals is key. Once you have those mastered, you can leverage those fundamentals to change gears and take more risks at various points in the tournament. With respect to rebuilding fundamentals, I'd recommend training sites and/or a coach. There's just too many moving parts for a ...

MulT25 20K GTD - ITM play final 50 or so
+1. Given the stacks, I don't think a r/f is going to be profitable. There's too many reshove stacks and, as omg mentioned, too many regs. At really, really tight tables you could try to force it though, but I doubt this is one of those spots. Shoving is profitable in both. You should look at HRC or ICMizer to see exactly how profitable those spots are. I think they might be so close to breakeven that you could justify either decision and feel good about it. Another consideration is how the table is playing. If people are terrible and not playing anything close to optimal, you might be ...

Calling preflop all ins and optimal equity needed
Agree with the ginger. I also don't like using 5-10% thresholds -- I measure it by bbs since it's a more constant measure that controls for stack size. I'd say about 0.25bb is about the margin of error I'd use, anything more and you're passing up way too many profitable spots. When it comes to the bubble, it depends on relative stacks and how close you are to the bubble. I'd increase the threshold a bit if you're on the dead money bubble in a MTT, but other than that, you need to take the profitable spots.

I dont think so in a 7 SNG. We should have r/c r/f ranges on that stack -- but not pre antes in a tournament where people will spaz out really often and call off with so many worse hands that inducing isn't necessary

How do i calculate the profitability of a 4bet bluff shove?
correct...but as a note -- this doesn't work out exactly correct at FTs since there are ICM implications. So it's similar math, but you should do ICM value of your stack before and after the jam

Getting Kings all in pre early in a tournament.
I prefer to 4b once you have the cold call. It's not good to get it in this early with AK, but people still do it. Most people are also looser when it's a reentry and make more mistakes. You get more value in the long run by getting in pre vs. flatting the 3b and playing multiway OOP. I'd make the 4b a little smaller though to allow them room to hood with a weaker range

FT bubble (final 12 or so) or the 4K GTD $2 Rush Rebuy on FTP.
Flat pre is standard. I hate the c/j since you never do it with 9x or anything better than that. You have a draw 100% of the time and villain always calls with a better hand. If villain has air, we can force him off it at a lower price with lower risk, so the jam increases your risk, lowers your EV and is higher variance...so yeah...hate it. With awkward stacks (i.e., can't just c/j), I mix it up based on villain tendencies. His cbet seems standard. I'd probably c/r flop. Also fine with c/c flop and c/r turn if bets (depending on turn c-bet stat). I also donk here with 9x, draws and air to ...
