      PF I isolate the fish who is 40/10.

      I think flop is standard Cbet esp. w/flush draw.

      On turn I decide to double-barrel to fold out KT, QT, JT, T9 and weak aces.

      On the river I was tilted because no one was folding to my cbets =/ I think the only hand he would be calling me with is JT here, and he would probably ship it first with a set.

      Should I have just shut down on the river? Was it OK to double-barrel?

      hy jdnismo

      i would fold it preflop or i will eventualy fold after they call my c-bet..its hard to make fish to give up his hand if he catch something,especialy on NL2

      as you played

      flop i would bet a little bit biger like 0.14

      turn would bet more if i want get some fold equity,like 0.25 or pot

      river pot bet


      hope i helped :)

      Hello jdnismo,

      Preflop: Way too loose open-raise against that fish, somehow I wouldn't recommend it.

      As played
      Flop: Yeah, you can likely bet here with your FD and also Ace board, he might even fold it right here.
      Turn: But as he decided to Call the flop then he rarely will fold, since he is that loose, therefore I'd rather just Check behind and hope to catch something.

      As played
      River: As he also Called the turn, I rarely see him folding here since he is such a fish, he is going to showdown very often, maybe even with Tx. Therefore I'd just give it up and wait for better spots.

      If you see yourself tilting or doing bad moves then stop for few hours, for example post hands and evaluate in forums, watch videos, read articles or whatever helps you improve poker and then in few hours go back. Also attending in coachings helps also. :)

      Best regards.
