      It seems stupid and unproovable but what do you think about the theory that u shouldnt playing on Sunday cuz your scores are worst than on a regular day? That's what Boku said and I saw it on some other forums also.

      Some people say that that's beacuse on Sunday theres more players for sun or so called sunday players. That's truth but shouldn't their bad decision make you earn even more on sunday than on other days? What do you guys think?

      UTG ($25.89)
      UTG+1 ($10.63)
      CO ($5.52)
      BTN ($24.15)

      CO posts $0.25

      Dealt to Hero Q:heart: Q:spade:

      where do you play? I am moving.

      and why not give up on that flop? I mean you only invested 1.75$ and you want to play for stacks to pool of players with overcard on board...

      flop betting for value. he does not necesarry have a king. Simiral hand discused:

      nl25 sh JJ 5way pot

      turn - bet because he has only 2$ left and if he bets I will have to call I guess anyway.

      I guess maybe you could argue that on Sundays there are more grinders playing more sets in tournaments, but I'm not convinced that this should decrease your ROI at all.

      I certainly don't say any argument why this would decrease your hourly/winrate in cash games! (unless you argue that more recreational players move from cash to tournaments leaving cash games reg filled...)
