Hey guys, I have been on a hell of a heater, something like 53bi over 5 days. Yesterday I put in the most volume I have ever done, mostly thanks to all of the fish that would not leave the tables till 4 in the morning. It was a pretty swingy day which I think that I could have made a lot better if not for a few really poor calls, and not playing my absolute best in smaller pots, and a misclick that cost me a buyin. Overall still happy with my game and how the month has been going so far. Here are the losing hands:
Just really gross and we definitely have the dymanics that he could even call me here with 99 or TT, so I think shoving here is by far superior to check folding or check calling. Really I am only worried about 77 and 76ss.
aghsgkhaslfjdsghgdjfas fucking misclick, so annoying
Obviously when I hit this sort of flop against a loose player there is really nothing I can do but to play for stacks, but I think I much prefer Cring in this spot than I would to 3betting AI
So normally once you hit AK in a 3bet pot then you are thrilled to go with your hand, but I think the combination of this board and his scary line makes this a pretty easy fold and really bad play on my part. I also think that when players hit big hands in 3bet pots they are making it so obvious that I need to totally ignore my hand and think about the strength of their line.
set over set
Surprising and probably a really bad backshove by my opponent considering I am squeezing with a massive fish and he will call such a wide range that I shouldnt be bluffing here and my range is stronger than normal
unlucky and what the hell is my opponent doing here?
QQ < TT
So some back history, this guy is a nut, and will barrel whenever checked to. I thought the board was so dry that I would be better off just calling off with KK on a low board rather than try to value own him which he was folding 45% of flops. I was obviously very worried about the bet size on the river, but I justified it by saying that it looked my like I was headed to showdown so he would need to bet bigger to get me off the hand. In reality, that is a terrible thought process because he is a 50 VPIP guy, and is not thinking about my hand in the least. This line just makes a ton of sense for having a flush and even though its a really sick feeling when you keep having to fold to crazy fish because you can't hit a hand against them, I can't let that get in my head and make -EV calls
Well I saw him min CR with top pair deuce kicker before so I really wasn't in a big mood to fold against a huge fish, but when I hit the turn there was no doubt I was going with the hand and I could beat some pure value hands like T7, 76, T6
Fucking terrible terrible call here, another different fish but he is a calling station fish who could call with middle pair here, but he is not a super aggro raising fish, really awful call
kk < AA
Unlucky against a major fish
I had notes on this player that he floats in 3bet pots so I tried to make my hand look as weak as possible and definitely think I lost the min here
So same thing with KK guy I called down earlier.
I am a big fan of making pretty big call downs against fish, especially when you give up the lead because a lot of them can barrel with absolutely no equity, but this hand looks exactly like what it is, fold the river if not the turn!
lol another fish gets me, man if I could have beaten the fish more this session I really would have had something
YES lost the min with set over set
another fish gets me, btw as you can see the games are pretty good right now
id bet money he has 33 here, still don't mind the spot for a triple barrel
really good spot to triple barrel, unfortunate I ran into just about the top of his range
Sorry the blogs have been so boring, but literally my life during the week consists of a few cigars, 6k hands of poker a day, and some time with my wife. Looking forward to golf tomorrow and having a nice dinner with my parents on Saturday. My newest video I think is one of my best so check that out, and I should have a new one coming out in the next couple of weeks that is on a similar topic. As always, pm me about coaching.
