      Hey guys, sorry about the length of this, but all these hands happened in a span of about 15 minutes, and killed my BR. I know most of them are coin flips, but they're very difficult hands to lay down? Anything glaringly obvious to you guys that is a weakness on my part?

      How do you play these hands properly but still building the pots?

      Any and all feedback (good and bad) is very appreciated.

      1) raise raise 4bb preflop if you are first in and there is no limper. all in after reraise is good :)

      2) stick to the shc and fold. you can push the flop

      3) don´t post the BB again after your stack has become so big. preflop raise is ok but try to stick to 4bb+1bb per limper+1bb if you are out of position. personally i would check behind the turn and hope for my outs

      4) again: your stack is too big. nevertheless i think you can go broke here. especially at nl10

      5) push that flop. you still have a quite solid made hand and the second nut flush draw. also your stack is quite small compared to the pot

      6) again your stack is way too big. bet flop


      pls stop playing instantly and reread the articles carefully ! have a close look at all charts and make sure you really understood them. have a look at some ss videos or coachings.

      Frzl did good job!

      Few other options, imo:

      3) Push flop. As played check behind on turn as Frzl sad.

      4) I think i can find fold here. Because your stack is big. this is ugly situation.

      6) You can push directly. If someone calls your bet you will be committed on turn anyway. Can someone find fold here?

      3) Hero checks, CO folds, Hero raises to $2.65 (All-In), UTG calls $0.25.
      didn`t really get the turn action, but anyway, I think it is quite an easy push.
      Two overcards, FD, gutshot outs + quite certain fold equity.

      4) Nothing ugly there, he could easily do it with 77) push

      6) No, we are not folding aces.

      2,4,5 - read frzl`s post

      For me, i will not answer the question you gave. That is for the simple reason that you must be playing over your bankroll if 5 buy in's breaks your BR.

      There is a general rule that 5-8% of your bankroll on 1 table is optimal. Also, this counts for multi-tabling. If you don't have large quantaties of your BR on the table, it helps get rid of the inevitable variance in poker. IE: losing 5 coinflips in a row.

      gl in the future Sir, i don't doubt you are a good player.
