      What I've learnt from these hand analysis sessions is increasing my bet sizes. I was pricing people in before. I wanted to peel a flop first before making a stack decision with this hand. Let me know if this was played correctly.

      Thanks

      Not sure why your calling the 4 bet, what would you have done if the flop came A or K high?

      You asked what I would do if an ace or king came on the flop and I'm saying I would have folded. Which is why I called the 4-bet pre-flop rather than doing anything hasty....

      Hello Ghartman,

      Preflop: Well, I don't really like. a) You are OOP ; b) You ain't gonna get value from AK type of hands if he doesn't hit most likely unless he is a spew-monkey. For that given part we should decide right preflop what we gonna do, either we ship it or just fold if he is rather nitty player.

      As played
      Postflop: Just Check/Shove directly and rather not leave some cents behind.

      Best Regards.
