First, yay for this thread, about time. Acid, finally watched your video, good stuff, would happily watch more. Sometimes you think so fast it was a bit hard to grasp some of your thinking behind hands but it was a great video.Right people, I have some questions.Took down a staked 4.40 so gave 3 stakes and jumped onto heads up. Obviously ridiculous br, but well, I didnt really care as I have just been playing live and getting money online is a headache in Israel and I can't play heads up live.So I went to heads up. Played 2 short stackers busted both, but I have these questions. One was standard not folding much player, he was limping continously from the button which we like, but when I was out of position I was being pretty passive in these spots. Unless I made a hand, I was pretty much check folding. If he bet his bluff bet amount, I'd re-raise or call and attack on the turn but asides from that, I was pretty much checking it away without much resistance, is this ok?When he limps from the button and is most likely calling raises, are we raising with 33 and 22 here? K j?I c-bet every hand I raised, completely standard agaisnt donks, right?Do you re-load automatically? . Down 5bbs, or 10 bbs etc. I was doing it, as it makes sense, but just wondering. If someones calling every raise and is a station afterwards, we just shore up and play tight, or raise to take it down when he misses the flop.And then this is a vent post of a hand that busted me, as never endingly argued out above, I'm fine with criticism as I played terrible. I decided to mix it up, its the first time I haven't c-bet the flop. Player seems competent, raises every button but has been calling a lot more of my raises from oop. Went on a bit of a rush and I doubled him up with AA losing to J 10, he called a 3-bet and made trips on the flop.PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (2 handed) Poker-Stars

I realise its absolutely terrible, this was me "mixing it up" then I decided to let it go to the river, diamonds scared and he called me down for 2 big bluffs recently so I figured I could make some at the end over betting or something, then he bet in to me.Flop and turn terrible, I cant really be ahead on river.When he went all in I sighed, and said "fine I'll fold" clicked time bank, checked the cashier, none left, I had reloaded, then as I sighed, I told myself he has two pair and figures me for something like ace 9 or over pair, 2 seconds later I was groaning at myself.Just one of those you know you have to fold things, but a 2 second blood rush, and the fact you can win by pressing call gets you.So theres some questions and feel free to destroy me with the hand, its just the river bet that gets me. He hadn't done it once, one of the reasons I was folding.....
