Regardless of that ... if he has a flush then you are losing the pot anyway on the river, so if he raises then you can fold. But the amount of times he raises your river bet with a flush here is far less than when he calls your bet with a worse hand. So betting is going to make you more money in the long run imo

Ok sound logic, I will proceed with this in future. Perhaps I was playing a little too cautious cos ive just moved up to 25nl.

I have saved in my notes from Harrington that the more outs we have to a big (or winning hand) the less we want to make a bet. I think the basic concept is that we want to wait until our hand is made before we start putting the majority of our money into the pot, by which point we can happily re-raise or go all in.

I played a 90 minute session tonight, which is basically the most ive played since the 6th. Only played 15k hands at \$10nl FR this month but running at 12.12bb/100 ... will step up the volume for the rest of the month.

Finished my last session down \$28 due to these 2 hands. Hand #1 I guess I felt he didnt have the flush cos it was backdoor. But in any case when he raises me he either has 2 pair at least or better. I called hoping he was bluffing and repping the flush. Clearly I should have folded. Hand #1 Poker Stars \$0.10/\$0.25 No Limit Hold'em - 9 players DeucesCracked Poker Videos Hand History Converter MP2: \$25.62 CO: \$10.00 BTN: \$10.00 SB: \$9.40 BB: \$10.00 Hero (UTG): \$49.38 UTG+1: \$28.30 UTG+2: \$27.61 MP1: \$9.15 Pre Flop: (\$0.35) Hero is UTG with A A Hero raises to \$0.75, 3 folds, MP2 calls \$0.75, 4 folds Flop: (\$1.85) 7 5 2 (2 players) Hero bets \$1.25, MP2 calls \$1.25 Turn: (\$4.35) K (2 players) Hero bets \$3, MP2 calls \$3 River: (\$10.35) 8 (2 players) Hero bets \$7, MP2 raises to \$20.62 all in, Hero calls \$13.62 Spoiler: Final Pot: \$51.59 MP2 shows T 9 (a flush, King high) Hero mucks A A MP2 wins \$49.59 (Rake: \$2.00) Hand #2 - When I get raised on the turn I felt the villain either had AK or KK. The fact he didnt cbet the turn made me feel it was less likely he had KK. My turn bet was quite small which should have allowed me to get away from a massive raise but I end up calling again. Defo need to get better at folding to large bets and re-raises. Hand #2 Poker Stars \$0.10/\$0.25 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players DeucesCracked Poker Videos Hand History Converter Hero (BTN): \$25.00 SB: \$25.00 BB: \$25.00 UTG: \$59.48 MP: \$20.31 CO: \$13.50 Pre Flop: (\$0.35) Hero is BTN with Q A 3 folds, Hero raises to \$0.75, 1 fold, BB raises to \$2.50, Hero calls \$1.75 Flop: (\$5.10) Q 2 7 (2 players) BB bets \$3.25, Hero calls \$3.25 Turn: (\$11.60) J (2 players) BB checks, Hero bets \$4.50, BB raises to \$19.25 all in, Hero calls \$14.75 all in River: (\$50.10) J (2 players - 2 are all in) Spoiler: Final Pot: \$50.10 Hero shows Q A (two pair, Queens and Jacks) BB shows K K (two pair, Kings and Jacks) BB wins \$48.10 (Rake: \$2.00)

The point in the graph were the profit line crashes from +200 to zero was just one of them phases were I couldnt hit any flops, was forced to fold to a lot of big turn raises. It was mainly the non showdown winnings that crashed due to having to fold. When I looked back through the hands there wasent any point where I got stacked or lost massive pots, it was pretty much just consistent losses all in a row. Back to +\$110 anyway so not all bad. The following 2 hands I was playing simultaneously tonight and got stacked twice in a minute yet still finished the session +\$50. After I lost the first hand think I had some rage tilt for the next 60 secs and overplayed my AA on a monochrome board hoping the villain would call with a flush draw.

Im back playing Zoom and just putting in 20 minute sessions when i can. I found i would often not bother starting a session because it takes too long to get a load of tables going using TST etc and on the times i did ... i would stop playing once i had a load of tables open. Zoom is ok for now ...sit down play for even 15 minutes .. then stop ...repeat and rinse. Had a nice start so far on Zoom after 2.5k hands or so.

His bets were pretty weak. But dunno if I played this too well regardless.
I think against this kind of opponent you played it just fine. You lost almost minimum there. Too bad he had that queen, but that's life/poker.

I feel as though I may be over playing these hands and getting too aggressive. Here is an example: Villain is loose aggressive with a very high 4bet and his 4 bet was quite low so I decide to call on the button. Poker Stars \$0.10/\$0.25 No Limit Hold'em - 9 players Hero (BTN): \$26.36 SB: \$45.58 BB: \$11.23 UTG: \$20.87 UTG+1: \$11.77 UTG+2: \$27.11 MP1: \$16.25 MP2: \$25.00 CO: \$24.03 Pre Flop: (\$0.35) Hero is BTN with A 3 5 folds, CO raises to \$0.65, Hero raises to \$2, 2 folds, CO raises to \$4.25, Hero calls \$2.25 Flop: (\$8.85) 9 5 K (2 players) CO bets \$4, Hero raises to \$22.11 all in, CO calls \$15.78 all in I pick up the flush draw on the flop and villain bets half pot. I if call on the flop here we both only have a pot size bet left on the turn and there is every chance he will shove leaving me having to fold. Plus there is the chance that if the diamond hits on turn it will scare the villain and kill the action. So I feel my only choice here is to shove, which will make him fold his bluffs and gives me 2 cards hit the flush the rest of the time. On reflection dont feel I am doing a lot wrong here, maybe just over analysing things after a downswing. Turn: (\$48.41) 6 (2 players - 2 are all in) River: (\$48.41) 3 (2 players - 2 are all in) Spoiler: Final Pot: \$48.41 Hero shows A 3 (a pair of Threes) CO shows 5 5 (three of a kind, Fives) CO wins \$46.41 (Rake: \$2.00)

Villain is 34/23 Whilst I recognise he may have the set I also felt there was a chance he had QQ a flush draw or some junk like JKs. When stack sizes get a bit larger than 100bb it sometimes goes to these villains heads and they start shoving light, so felt I grudgingly had to call here.

Seems like they always have 'it' though. Over how many hands was he a 34/23 though?

Yeh well im determined to achieve the goals set out here at least then ill take it from there. Was having a look through the amount of tables available yday for FR and seems to drastically decrease just moving up a few levels. I cant imagine there being too many fish at 100nl + either. Do people start playing on multiple sites when table numbers start decreasing on Pokerstars I wonder.

When im reviewing my big losses of getting stacked Im not seeing too many mistakes its mainly coolers and the villain sucking out.

Think my leaks may be more subtle. Defo think I can improve my blind play.

Ive also discovered poker podcasts which is quite good cos I need to do 10 hour shifts at work and I can listen to audio while I work, so I can learn some stuff from them no doubt.
