      BB player:


      Preflop: at first glance I thought that I played it correct preflop but after analyze I came to a conclusion that I made a mistake in calling his 3B even in situation BTNvsB because I was behind vs his 4% range...

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 51.918% 50.71% 01.20% 250096434 5933833.50 { 99+, AQs+, AKo }
      Hand 1: 48.082% 46.88% 01.20% 231179451 5933833.50 { JJ }

      what is quite interesting that even AK, it's not worth to call vs his range...

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 56.443% 47.60% 08.84% 525693750 97683234.00 { 99+, AQs+, AKo }
      Hand 1: 43.557% 34.71% 08.84% 383375862 97683234.00 { AKs, AKo }

      so against his range we can call QQ:

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 43.575% 42.31% 01.27% 199949274 5986507.50 { 99+, AQs+, AKo }
      Hand 1: 56.425% 55.16% 01.27% 260673615 5986507.50 { QQ }

      Flop: If I had decided to call 3B I couldn't have folded it because against his 4% range I was ahead, it could have been just standard CBet with Ahigh:

      Board: 8h 2h 3c
      Dead:

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 47.860% 46.87% 00.99% 133623 2835.00 { 99+, AQs+, AKo }
      Hand 1: 52.140% 51.15% 00.99% 145827 2835.00 { JJ }

      Turn: Here I was 100% behind so I decided to fold it:

      Board: 8h 2h 3c 2d
      Dead:

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 90.000% 87.50% 02.50% 4620 132.00 { JJ+, AhKh }
      Hand 1: 10.000% 07.50% 02.50% 396 132.00 { JJ }

      What do you think about my analyze? Was it correct and smart?
      BTW... I have a question about learning... what can I do more? How can I move forward with my play? How to learn? What do you suggest player like me?

      Hello BGawli,

      Preflop: Well, if the guy still likes to defend his blind then sure, it's even find to Call. But it's not the case here, as I see the guy folds to steal 89% of the time? So it means for us that we at the best flip here against AK and most likely even not that at some spots. For that given reason I'd just fold it directly here. Although as we get set mining odds then calling is fine. :)

      As played
      Postflop: Totally like your analyze and it's totally true as well. I really doubt that he would even 2nd barrel there any draw-type of hands anyways and we beat just a small part of his range. Rather fold it on turn, although flop is still a Call vs his part of range which also consist of AK.

      What do you think about my analyze? Was it correct and smart?

      Answered that part already above. It's good and gives you the overview how you actually should play your hand.

      BTW... I have a question about learning... what can I do more? How can I move forward with my play? How to learn? What do you suggest player like me?

      Well, I have opened the Private Coaching thread by now, if you want we can always talk about that there as you were even asking couple of months back about private coachings. I am pretty sure we can figure our a lot of stuff there. Either for FR or SH, which ever you would like to take.
      Although of course even without coaching there is a lot to do. As long you are Gold you can watch a lot good videos, unfortunately very good pro videos are for diamonds so from that part there is not much to do for you, might be if you move up the limits. :) Meanwhile watch what's given for you. But have you tried find a friend for poker with who you could hold sessions together? And obviously the hand evaluation part is anyways the most valuable part as you might have realized yourself already.

      Best Regards.

      When I was making this analyze I forgot about the most important thing here why I decided to call his 3B!!! I reminded it when I was in the bed. I think that you also forgot about this. I analyzed it in situation when we were 100bb. Look at my stack and BB stack.
      We were deep. So my call preflop was correct for given odds to hit set. I had 21-1 :)

      I was thinking about private coaching but I think that $40 is too much for me at this moment and on NL10. I'm not claim that it's not worth, I'm sure that it is and I will take it but not in this limit. NL20, NL30 I will take private coaching with you I'm sure.
      I would like to know what I can do on my own, I'm looking for a tips from you, direction what to do.
      I think that I have to improve my play, not mindset. Tilt isn't a problem for me and it's not leak where I lose money.
      In my opinion I should start adjusting my play against opponents on the table but I don't know how to do this.

      Yeah, I did add the set-mining thing. :D Somehow I took SB stack there. :)

      Adjusting to opponents and their play takes a lot of time to practice. Don't be even sad if you don't get it right away. Even the best player still earns the ranges and tries to adjust to different opponents and will forever do.

      Also that's true that Private Coachings might be too expensive for the beginners. That's also why I have picked the smallest price of all Coaches I guess, to make it easier to catch. And at the same time I don't want to give NL50+ coachings since it would definitely cost more money. As you may see from my prices they vary $30-$40. Also I am planning to make some announced 50% discount coachings to advertize myself but stay tuned for that. :>
