i don't , i just sit back and play poker! then after session or after time periods i just check to see how many hands i've played...

i know roughly that if you 10-12 table its like 900-1k an hour or something, and i try to always have sessions of poker where i have minimum 8-9 tables or else i play more and more hands which isn't good.

Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

Great goal.

With 22yrs how do you have 200k and how do you feel about it? Was it playing poker or in real life working? What type of work if so? Also do you play poker fulltime atm?

That's cool if you dont want to answer, it's kinda private questions but I find them interesting as I am curious about it.

And good luck at last

    bet flop is standard, as is the turn. when the river comes down, i ask myself, am i folding if i check and he shoves? no, never. so i may aswel bet all in here and if he has the J or runner spades, then ok, but there are too many combinations of 2prs that would hero call me, but would just check behind on the river...so i had to shove for max value in this spot, imo! He had KQ fwiw
    I was thinking checking river is having the max value here? Most of the time you'll probably only get called w/ the shove on river with a straight. And occasionally a hesitant call w/ two pair. In this hand generally, we put the villain on two pair as there are many combinations of 2prs as you said. And since we are not 100% (unless we see holecards) sure of what he holds, he also has a chance of having the straight, therefore by checking we reduce variance.

    If we are never folding on the river, we also want villain to bluff allin(his 2pr, 1pr, air) on the river, or maybe thin value his 2pr (villain's range), as we are calling regardless. I feel that checking is a win/win here. Any thoughts?

    this hand obviously is very opponent dependent, and in this example with the dynamic we had going on (aggro and v light value bets, and alot of barreling going on) i'm 99.999999999999999% sure that this was a river bet.
