Until yesterday I had been. It's good advice. Yesterday I just didn't think I was playing badly so decided to stick at it. In hindsight, I made some much more higher variance plays which I normally wouldn't. Unfortunately for me I actually made the right reads and got the money in good and still lost but the play was definitely a higher variance line than I'd normally take.
Eg. On the Btn with Ah 9h and make standard 3x open. BB is playing 38/38 and a 3b% of 55 (5/9). He 3b again as usual and I jam on him. He calls with Jh Th (lol, yeah got ya).... xxx JJ. nh, wp.
@ Gooner ->
Hand 1 - First observation - why are you are this table? This looks like a tough table without an obvious target. It's a table with very small edges that perhaps relies on a cooler rather than getting value v fish. However, as played, I think I check/fold or bet/fold. I don't like calling against this opponent who can make us make another tough decision on the river.
Hand 2 -> Tough spot here. His bet sizing screams value. Raising would be awful if he shoved on us because we have a hand with value. However, calling once again leaves us with another river decision. Not sure here. Perhaps I fold turn but interested in everyone's thoughts?
Hand 3 -> I honestly just fold PF but I'm a nit
. Don't mind your flop play but I think I just check behind on the turn now with s/down value and see what he does on the river, hoping to pick off a bluff or bet myself if he checks again.
