      Just cashed the hot11 for almost $100. Finished 25/3800 after set < straight on the fucking river in a multi pot, that was guaranteed final table :f_frown: :f_frown: :f_frown:

      Also I think I might be skipping some late MTT or using some extra money to play the hot16.50 since its decently soft (cuz turbo) but high variance ofc.

      you make it sound a bit worse than it was though, 66 vs 88 vs AK :P . so basically flop was 6xT, turn J, river Q or something similar, but still :) .

      I am not MTT player so take it with a pinch of salt. Do you think there is enough dead money to justify a push there?

      if you knwo there are fish do you think you can make both of them fold... I mean with A8o you are never that much ahead of anything

      you seemm tired of losing these flips but in MTTs you'll get through a few of them generally and lose nearly 1/2 of them on average so don't be dishearten so much.

      I know its 55% vs 45%. I'm not complaining only about that. MTT is more than those percentages. But there are some factors.

      1. due the dead money I probably only need like 40% to be breakeven. So our shove there is 15% above EV alone. Combine this with the fold equity its much more, probably doubled.
      2. just annoyed by those bad plays by fish always sucking me out @ the bigger MTTs (just fucking suck me out AA<23o on a shitty $1 rebuy MTT :rolleyes: )
      3. I've played enough MTTs and HUSNG hypers to know whats variance, esp when its 55:45. Again read 2, they keep coming up at crucial times or big buyin MTTs ?(

      /end rant :megusta:

      edit:
      4. about those limps, the 2nd or/and 3rd limp, its 99% weak because if they had something, they would RAISE and wouldn't want to see a 5-way flop with QQ+ AQ+ ;)

      But yeah thanks for posting. Might be some users/stakers who didn't knew my reasons for doing such that really looked like a coinflip :)

      Looked like a though spot but fairly okay'ish IMO. Should rarely be folding on such spots, because if he had anything he would shove the flop tbh.

      -edit- my search is on for anyone who wants to follow live while playing himself :)
