      I moved to NL5, so here it goes:

      Up to river I was ahead, but then he shoved on river. Do you call seeing his stats below? I put him on K5 and suited connector with 5 and I folded.

      Hi Ramadas,

      Congrats on the 5nl move

      Preflop: I think that isolating from the blinds with this offsuite ace is a bit light. It's the worst Ax and villains like them play a ton of Ax hands. We will also be OOP to two players so it will be hard to win pots with cbets.

      Postflop: As played why do we bet so small on the turn and river? Our bets can easily induce a bluff.

      Even the turn cbet is super thin because villain has a ton of Ax hands and few draws/pairs. So we can consider bet/folding 1/2 on turn and ck/fold river.

      AS a side note, I'm not sure if I mentioned this before, but if you leave a reply please hit the "advise judge to take another look" button so we can see it.

      Thanks for reply.

      So I guess my thin bets are influenced by P* pro trainings in MTTs, which encourages minraise bets and I just messed up MTT with cash games.

      Do you know where I can find some short table of differences between MTT and cash play, so I can watch out for them when watching MTT or cash game videos?

      Yes, MTTs are completely different than cash games.

      The main difference is the fact that you are playing a much deeper game. Not the 5-25 BB stacks as most hands are played. So with less BBs in play smaller bets/raises make a lot more sense.

      In cash games that doesn't work nearly as well.

      Unfortunately I don't know a spot where you can see these differences listed but I recommend you watch the beginner videos and maybe even sign up for the beginners course (and attend my beginners coachings on the weekends).

      Thanks for the invitation, but I just have to differentiate between MTT and cash games and stick to cash games rules when playing them.

      I earned over 60 USD on cash games with 20 USD starting roll on P* NL2 using PStrategy excellent articles on cash games, so I have to reread them. It is more time effective for me to read than to watch or participate in trainings. I am from generation of book readers :)

      No worries Ramadas,

      Just focus on bet sizing and you can also consider looking at other hand evaluations to see how other players play and what advice they've been given.
