Thanks in advance.
One tip I'd give is to intersperse your street-by-street reasoning into the hand history. Make it in green font or something. As is, people probably open the thread and see a brick of text and think meh, that's a lot of reading. But if you put quick reads at the top then get right into the hand history, people will be into the hand and your thinking will start giving them ideas "that's good" or "that's bad" as they go, and they'll be more likely to get into the post.

For instance:

Poker Stars $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em - 9 players - View hand 45662
The Official 2+2 Hand Converter Powered By DeucesCracked.com

BTN: $50.00
SB: $69.20
BB: $20.45
UTG: $31.50
UTG+1: $55.90
UTG+2: $22.20
MP1: $52.05
Hero (MP2): $59.45
CO: $56.70

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is MP2 with 9 J
4 folds, Hero raises to $1.75, CO raises to $3, 3 folds, Hero calls $1.25

I dont mind a raise here against these player types with a hand like j9s. When he min rearised I am thinking a hand with strength like 99+ kjs+. Even though I am going to be oop the price was just to good to not be in the hand with this fish

Flop: ($6.75) 3 6 8 (2 players)
Hero checks, CO bets $2.50, Hero calls $2.50

I cant see bloating the pot here and the hands that will pay me off I felt would fold if I checked raised. I do believe he is going to cbet a wide range here.

Turn: ($11.75) J (2 players)
Hero checks, CO bets $3.50, Hero raises to $9.75, CO calls $6.25

Now that I picked up some more equity in the hand I felt comfortable putting in a reraise here. If he called I felt I may be behind or drawing with a higher flush draw. Based on this info I didn't want to make a large reraise and felt my sizing here was accomplishing my goal.

River: ($31.25) K (2 players)
[color=red]Hero bets $15

This felt like such a good card to bet at. If he had something like Aj,Qj,QQ I may get those hands to fold here.

Question: What do you think of betting this river? What mindset and factors should I be piecing together to know when to double barrel or just check fold in these spots. Is the bet sizing appropriate or does a bet like 25 make the bet more believable?

Usually I get a yearly stye or pink eye or some sort of eye issue. Luckily none in 2008.

I'm running one eye issue above expectation for 2008!

And it still makes me happy to get some sympathy.

I guess its time to take another month off just to be bad beat and coolered like ****ing crazy as soon as I fire up a poker game again come March.

I'm consumed with rage and jealousy right now. Its not a good thing.
Here's something for you buddy.

Current bankroll 138.96

Since 2/13 down 8 BI at 25NL on weekends . . . up 1 BI otherwise.

Last weekend down $53 on KK<77 and KK<AA - breakeven otherwise.

This weekend down 6 BI -36.84PTBB/100

804 hands since Friday (small sample blahblahblah)

2 straights saw flop - one ran into 9999

3 flushes saw flop - up 4bb

41 PP - 0 sets

13 OESD on flop - hit 0

21 FD on Flop - hit 0 - shoved 1 -1BI

1 FH backdoor on 8-hi flop for $12 win - Hoo Hoo!

WTSD 15.48

W$SD 45.83

My ability to find calling stations online is only exceeded by my inability to hit a hand once I find them.

Having a wonderful time at 2NL though. Prolly a year at that and I can be back to where I was 10 days ago.

Brutal stretch. Good thing I have a reload ready to go. I am considering whether to drop down and fight my way back up . . . or just keep battling 25NL.

Don't let the variance make you question your abilities. Your posts have improved my game . . . despite this weekend's results.

It's good to have you back around though. I hope you stick it out and things turn around. After running -30BI below EV at 10ONL and 50NL (which I know is nuthin compared to your downswing) I gave up the FR grind. After a month or so break, I've been donking it up 25NL 6max playing like 1/10 as many hands as I used to. At least the game is fun again though.

May I direct you to the 2001 NYT review:

Quote:
With its blasé blend of bogus international intrigue and action-for-action's-sake, Swordfish suggests a James Bond movie stripped of humor. True, there are a few moments of wit, like the opening sequence. But the dominant tone masquerading as humor is a snide, rancid nihilism devoid of laughs, unless wholesale destruction and gloating stupidity are what tickle your funny bone.

Yep. This is all you need to know.

If you must, make liberal use of the fast forward and especially the PAUSE and SLOW MOTION buttons.

Holy ****, talk about pwned.....I was so excited when Laak manned up and triple barreled, cuz I was like "no wai can PA call this now, he called the turn because of his FD." And then he called pretty quickly and I felt Laak's pain because I thought he played the hand perfectly.
