Thanks m8, already looked at it, gonna order it for next week delivery, so far i got 2 books paperback is Harrington on 6max online i just love this book i read it and i need to reread it again, but there is still "beating small stakes" section left to read, but i am not there yet. Also i got "Kill everyone" for the tourneys, i think this could help me to play some decent mtts in future as well though, i still hope i get in to $215 10mln guaranteed on 18th of december, i won two fpp sats already and there is one left to get in for free, if i miss i play $11 sat and hope to get in to that tourney

So i am trying to see leaks by the moves i do when filtering at PT3, and my biggest leak is calling turn and river bets with one pair, ace high etc, i would be twice more in profit if i learn to fold in specific situations.

Re: BEATING DAMN MICROS!!! Thats a goal i believe..

Why is it that you call every person you play a fish? Seems like you like no much respect for anyone. Do you think some of your plays are affected by thinking everyone is a "fish"

Re: BEATING DAMN MICROS!!! Thats a goal i believe..

Nothing wrong with that. "Noted Poker Authority" Ed Miller has 3 main player types in his latest book "How To Read Hands".

1. The Nit
2. The Reg
3. The Fish

Great book by the way if you want to learn to hand read better. Be prepared to study hard and do tons of homework though.

No. I'm not saying its swearing. And yes I know different categories of players. That's not my point.
What I'm saying is you see calling every single one of your opponents a fish. Not sure that's the right approach. Even the hands you misplay seems to be the fish always got lucky. your focus seems only on what bad plays the "fish" is making and not your game also.

It wouldn't be the first second or even 5th poker book I've read. I appreciate your advise.

Because i played with this guy before many hands and he is very aggro overall, but it's easy to bluff him in some good spots, also he always in any hand he called making a donk bet, putting pressure on you and trying to make u fold best hand, when he got something real he plays it diffrently, this time he was drawing and i decided do not raise him but just make weak call, if i raise the flop, he folds 98% he is not a fish, look at his turn overbet after i called his donk bet, this is where he was trying to put me off the pot, but no way vs him i am not going no where, so he had a flush draw or more likely AT with a str8 draw, or may be both, not likely he had a K in his hand, so i called the turn, now look at his river bet, this is where he showed weakness and i am also not too happy to just call with mid pair, so just with him, pot is big already i decided to shove, keeping in mind there is also an option he had exactly the same hand, so same hand or missed draw = if i call i take the pot or we split the pot, if i shove there is big chance he is going to fold and i take the pot without the showdown.

I was sure he didnt had a hand to call with, if i call.. there is some chance we had the same hand, so a bit pointless, i just outplayed him on the river basically.
