      Hey!

      I'm not a TDL pro, but played my fair share, and I am a winning player over a medium sample, so...

      First and foremost, convert your HHs, there are 2 converters out there, I won't link them, you can find them.:)

      So, let's rock!

      #1) Q8653
      I'd fold pre. BU certainly has a 4-card-draw, which should be better then yours, also most of the 2s will be out there, so the best hand you can draw to is a perfect87-1 (worst 86). Also, with a 7 you will have a really really marginal hand, that oop is just sux. If you decide to play it for some reason, then the cap is fine. As played the flop bet is bad IMO. BU drew one, you didn't imporve, he'll bet here 100%, no need for giving him the chance to raise you with a pat hand. As played turn bet is fine, you really can't hope for a better hand with such a rough draw, I'd bet/fold this here, and c/f the river. C/f river: it's the really bottom of you range here (I hope), so you sure don't have a vbet, you might bluff off some weaker 9, but because Villain probably has a smooth draw, he may call you with 97 in that spot because of the huge pot, so I don't really see that much bluff-value either. Also, Villain will not bluff you in that spot, but will vbet very thinly, and because of this is the bottom of my range, I fold.

      #2) AT752
      Pre coldcall is fine, such a smooth 7 draw I don't fold to a cap either.
      I don't like your raise on the flop, but it's consistent with your plan, so really I have a problem with your plan! Why keeping the T? You have one of the best 7 draws you can have in that spot, and you have pretty great IO if you hit, also the T is just a damn RIO hand, so I just call and break the T off here. As played the river bet is horrible, see above the reason, however you can make a rough 9 fold here sometimes, so it's maybe better than the above hand, but really, we pat a hand with such a smooth draw underneath just to turn it into a bluff on the river??? It's really silly IMO.

      #3) QJ753
      Pre fold or 3bet IMO, in a cash game, it's a must fold, you have great roughness with your hand, also you're giving good price by just coldcalling, and 3betting this hand is just burning money IMO. My only reason to 3bet here would be to isolate the AI player, get heads up, and play equity-poker*, but I still hate that with 3 people acting behind me. The drawing decisions are good here, however it's really inconsistent that you pat a T last hand, and now you break it, when you don't have RIO + have a gutshot. Still, I'd break the T here, but that just shows how much you'd have the break the T last hand.


      *I call equity-poker, when you don't have to care about your implied and reversed implied odds. Basically AI situations.

      #4) A7654

      ?!?!?!?!!?!?!? drawing to an OESD? You have 4 outs (but usually 3) to make the 4th nuts, and 4 outs to make a really bad 9; nothing in between... Why do you even play this hand? It's just bad...
      As played I'd break the 6 too, because drawing to an OESD is just like an equity nightmare, 754 >>>> 7654 equitywise. As played the bets are fine.

      #5) KJJ74
      What do you want to do with this hand? Raise? I mean a reasonable player openraises only 2+wheel cards and just on the button regarding 2-card-draws. I'd personally openraise only 23, 24, 25, 27, sometimes vs nits 26 on the button, but that's my whole 2-card-draw openraise range.

      #6) T7552
      The openraise is ok with the 752, but why the cap? Villain will only have 4-card-draws and pat hands in his range (that you're behind of course), if he's really spewy he might have 3-card-draws that you flip against. No reason to cap. Why are we betting on the flop? Our opponent pats, and we improve. Is it a bet for value? I don't think so. Is it a bluff? Will he fold a pat hand here? No way. Even if I'd have improved to a good pat hand, I'd have c/r-ed, because he has to bet here every time. Turn is fine, river vbet seems pretty good, because he reps such an incredibly bad hand...

      #7) J8432
      Preflop is pretty standard here, we have a decent 4-card-draw, so we have to 3bet. Binking the 5th nuts is always good, also betting the flop is pretty standard. Bet/3betting the turn is also good, Villain can easily valueraise worse hands (especially of our image:D ), so I like the 3bet here, also river vbet is perfect.

      #8) 75542
      HU TD is fun!!! Pre totally standard. We have a 4-card-nut-draw, I'd go all in here basically, if it would be no limit...:)
      Flop is good, but what does our opponent bet/3bet with. I don't think he would bet/3bet a 1-card-draw here, so he must have a pat hand, that he broke to our cap. Turn is std. vbet, but on the river I opt to check behind here, because
      - if he broke a 9 on the flop, he must have had a smooth draw underneath, like 97532 and such, so if he improved to an 8, he won't have many worse 8s calling
      - if he broke an 8, he won't call with an 8 on the river, so only better hands calling

      #9) 88333
      Wow, what a hand HU!
      I'd probably be more happy to snow with this hand, however my concern is that if we draw to the 83, we can't really have a credible snow line, so it's very opponent-specific. If you think, he believes you, and folds mostly against your pats, I maybe break off 1 card, and then pat on the flop, if he's more the SD-bound type of guy, I'd draw 3 and maybe turn my hand into a snow on later streets, if I don't improve. (Just be sure to have a credible line there, because drawing 3 then patting is just screaming snow.)

      #10) AJ972
      Now, in contrary what I said earlier, in HU I raise with most if my 2 card nut draws, because I'm IP, and it's HU TD! 27 is basically the best 2-card-draw you can have, folding it is just way too nitty.

      #11) QJ943
      I'd never 3bet a 3-card-draw HU on the BB, because I'll have a big part of bad draws there, and in TD balancing is the most important things, otherwise you can be read like a child-book. So anyway, I call with all my 3-card-draws HU, and 943 is just the real bottom of my range there, so I'm really not happy 3betting this. (However, if you have unbalanced ranges, it's quite a nice spot for deception:) )
      Predraw it's close between drawing to the 943 and 43 itself, but I'd choose 943, and maybe pitch it later easily.
      As played the turn is a spew. You didn't improve, he might have, he'll never fold, and raise you with better hands, so you're for sure not ahead here, betting is burning money in that spot.
      Turn is an ugly spot, because he can easily raise you with a 4-card-draw because you played the flop the way you did, but 3betting still is not a good option here IMO, because if he has a pat hand, his is most likely better than ours, so I'd just call and pat here. It's pretty unbalanced, but if he pats behind, you can easily c/f the river.
      River vbet is just to thin, we overrepresented our hand on 3 streets before.

      #12) KQJT6
      What do we want to draw to? The bare 6? The worst low card we can hold? That's just silly...

      #13) AA7755
      Openlimping is bad here, only good if our opponent 3bets a ton (that he should if he's a competent player given your kind of LAG style/hand selection), but still...
      The flop is an easy raise, we have a very good draw here, also, he'll be all in in the next betting round, so why don't we put all our bets in now. Drawing decision is fine.

      All in all, I'd suggest you to read some articles about 2-7 TD, if you have Super System 2, there's a good section in it about TD written by Daniel Negreanu, and try to learn it the way you learn other games, not just by hoping into an FTOPS Sat... as I see there are some really good TD players you played with, so I'd prepare for the FTOPS pretty damn hard, if I were you.

      Now if you have any questions, please ask!

      Thank you for your feedback. As I mentioned earlier, I entered the tournament by accident and I'm not planning to play it on these limits anytime soon again. Maybe in the future and then I at least learned something from this experience.
