  1. Really wasn't trying to troll. Sorry if you took it that way.What I mean is you should be avoiding uncomfortable situations where possible. It will be a big boost to your winrate imo.For example, most people start out as a TAG and with experience move towards more LAG play. This is because as they play more and more hands they start expanding their ranges because they are getting used to more marginal situations. It's a natural As to the hand, answer these questions to yourself and see what you come up with. What happens on the flop if you flat/raise, what hands call, what hands jam, what hands give up? Same deal with the turn and river. Think about the range you're value betting against, think about the range you want him to bluff with. Do you want to get to showdown cheaply? Why? Do you want to get stacks in here? Think about your various options on all streets here.I still think you wouldn't have posted this if the guy showed up with some random hand that you beat, but I may be wrong.XXXEddie, do you think it's a good idea for him to get himself into uncomfortable situations? Not sure why it's bad telling him not to. I think he should be theorizing about hypothetical situations and how to handle them before he starts getting himself into them. Not be on the river in a 500bb pot just going WTF DO I DO??????

    (Rake: $0.99)Villain is 20/17 with 25% 3bet over a very very small sample size of 30 hands, felt AJ with position was solid enough, and that calling on the flop was absolutely necessary. When he checked the turn, I was pretty sure I had him beat, but, thought checking behind was the best option here so I don't get raised, or have some huge pot on the river where I won't know where I'm at. How should I have played it?

    Pretty sure you don't post this and ask how to play it if the guy shows up with a worse hand/air here.
  3. Here in Louisina casinos we have several "regulars" who are rocks and play very well every day. My suggestion is get to know who these people are before you play against them. It isn't hard just show up early and watch. Lots of people will know them and they will be very comfortable. The problem I face in alot of NL games is the largest game offered is 2-5 and you have rich people playing with a 100-200 bank roll playing 2-5. Me and several others are very obviously better players but they will all-in you into quitting. If you can't avoid these people, tighten up and let them make the mistakes when you have the goods.
    Sounds like you're not fully rolled for 2-5 or else this isn't something you should worry about.

  4. Only advice I can give you is not to get too into your data. It will mess with you. Just focus on playing your best game and everything will work out.
    Are you referring only to the win/loss data or all his stats from playing?Because reviewing stats is vital to getting better.
  5. Thanks! I was kinda thinking that I was being a bit more aggressive then I should be. So always buy in max? I didn't know about that rule. Went with the philosophy that less was more, but thanks. I will implement that :ts. Like I said, any other criticism is good. I know that I have to be comfortable at the level, but I figured the only way to do that is to jump into it, I guess. If I jump and don't feel I am playing right, I suppose it would be better to move down and gradually get comfortable. Or I can do what I normally do and start with limit. Again, thank you very much for the advice. I will let you guys know how I am doing if you care to read it or not. :club:
    I think you will have a hard time if you start with LHE and try to move into NL.
  6. yes i do. i know we are IP and im saying i would not be betting the turn. i would check to pot control and not turn my hand into a bluff. and on the river if he bets a reasonable amount i would call bc he will think we are weak a lot given the line. lets him bluff at us. granted he could still have a flush and we get owned, but i think ch
    Click back does not equal check back.
