  1. Surely the big question is whether there were any bounties involved. Secondly, has the BB been a maniac previously and gained such a huge stack by taking big isolation spots with hands like 33,44,55 etc... he is likely shoving because he doesn't want over called by a hand like 1010. Think you have to ask yourself are you wanting to run deep deep or are you happy with a 15th place finish... My opinion but I think you have to take that spot and hope the BB is playing a lower pocket pair as you'll have him crushed.
  2. I will be brutally honest... I have played about 12 years but never taken poker in any way seriously. Especially and I cannot emphasize this enough with my bankroll management and tournament choices. I am a losing player due to my wild bankroll decisions and reveling in the fact I am in a $109 turbo bounty builder with C.Darwin2, limitless, Bencb etc etc.. so essentially utterly outclassed but I love competition and I get a huge thrill from competing and playing alongside the best in the game. After spewing off a hefty $8k win in 2018 from a few mtt's and winning a tournament live in Vegas, I
  3. Need some advice as to whether this reshove which hunted the short stack bounty but put me at risk from the bigger stack who raised to try isolate the short stack bounty was a loose move.. I realise this is the Saturday Bounty Builder and there is more emphasis on aggressively hunting bounties than normal but this still didn't quite sit right with me.. His bet indicated strength rather than just a simple reshove on his part - what are your thoughts? Plus I had a healthy stack and could have sat patiently waiting for the blinds to hurt the shorter stacks who will get more loose as time goes on.
  4. Yeah that makes sense, the flat decision was based on the zero fold equity and I thought if flop something horrible like JK4 etc I could have made the fold and potentially made the money even from that position. Either way I think you're right, if I shoved then more likely one player would shove to isolate me but then again my bounty was tiny so not even sure that would have worked. Live and learn, I guess next time in this awkward position I just push it all in and pray.
  5. I am gutted about the outcome of the hand but was it the right play? I have like 7 big blinds and call the min raise in the BB with 9H9S (one heart) flop comes 473 all hearts. I decide to shove on flop and the SB wakes up with AH8H.. I'm crushed. I blocked his heart, I have the overpair, I play to go deep not to min cash.. Just need confirmation this was the correct move as I hate bubbling. https://www.boomplayer.com/31945380_7AF075AB55
  6. So I am on a big downswing in 2019 but I stand by my play and feel I am getting my money in good a lot of the time but having very bad run outs at the most critical moments in tournaments. I just want to know if any top players here have had a similar run but still believed in their ability and stuck by their logic, experience and mental resiliance and turned it around? It is becoming fairly soul destroying getting beat by a 20BB pre flop all in call with A3os when I hold QQ in the $162BB etc but I actually close the table with a smile on my face knowing I got max ev out that spot and played i
  7. I had a sunrun in 2018 where I booked 2nd place in Mini Battle Royale for nearly 5k, couple of other deep runs banking about another 3k. My profit for the year was just over $5k online and about $2k live. It's safe to say that 2018 was my poker turning point after doing lots of studying on my mental game, utilising a more aggressive strategy and picking my spots. Also almost vitaly in these tournaments where I was running deep my flips just won, like at least 50% of the time to 70% of the time I just won.. it was simple?! Fast forward one year and I have made mistakes with my bankroll manageme
  8. Ok guys, after a few days to think about it I'm now thinking it wasn't a +EV move with 5 to act behind... was a bit bounty greedy and should have flat and folded I think.. pretty hand lured me in!
  9. https://upswingpoker.com/hand/?pokeit=724dBbDFf Im really not sure if I was hunting too wide but my considerations were that the original all in shove was about 9BB and his range I thought would be really wide. Like A5 off etc, think it was unlucky to run into his AA but the most important part was the biggest stack waking up with QQ and knocking me out. I really tanked over the decision as I knew if I flat called the 9BB shove and got reraised all-in it wouldn't be a great situation as me shoving enabled more fold equity and I think it was the right play but just unfor
  10. Appreciate the feedback guys. All really useful stuff and I agree with pretty much all of it. I didn't want to raise too much pre as I actually wanted to try entice this LAG player to get involved as I knew he could provide a lucrative payoff with his style of play. My sizing throughout was a bit strange as I was a bit confused as to what to do... hence the strange line. I agree with you guys there! Sad result but I should have driven him out the pot at earlier stages.
  11. Gents, I would genuinely appreciate some feedback on the way that I played this hand as I am honestly not sure if the result was deserved based on my decisions. I tanked for almost the whole time bank before calling the turn... I had already marked the Villain as a LAG player and was aware he was active and looking for blood. Hero = MEEEEOOOOW https://www.boomplayer.com/25684364_E2E7387F2B
  12. Ok guys... was really just checking my sanity as it's run so badly recently I was questioning my strategy! Appreciate it and realise it +ev for going deep which is the aim of the game.
  13. So the reason I am posting this is that quite often just pre or just post the bubble I get dealt AK... I think brilliant... then it always seem to run into pocket 10's or something similar and I lose this flip a LOT. Just looking for some advice as to whether you guys think I should call in position and play post flop with it.. Below is a run down of the action so you can get more of an appreciation for the sitatuion. It's an $11 turbo Knockout on Pstars. I am in seat 1. My logic for shoving was potential fold equity, I only have 10BB's and plus I am in it to go deep not just cash. Seat
  14. Good advice and replies guys, I appreciate it. Think I'll try the 3/3.5x raises early doors in the tournament and see is that has a positive influence. I've never considered that the tournament field is significantly weaker at the start of the tournament either! It's blindingly obvious now I've seen it but it's something I've never considered.
  15. You might be thinking... daft question?! I kind of agree... I've been playing online poker for nearly 10 years now but never been a "reg" or a consistent winning player but I am observent and looking for some advice. It seemed that 5-10 years ago if you min-raised online it actually cleared away the weaker hands and left you usually winning the pot or going hu to contest the pot.. These days it seems to get to a similar situation you would need to 3x or maybe even 3.5/4x.... Poker seems to have become more aggressive pre-flop without warranting a reason as to why.... or am I just missing it? I
