      Question 1: What is your motivation for playing poker?
      Well for me atm is only a hobby, i enjoy playing poker even if i am going on tilt sometimes but i observed that with time i'm tilting less :)

      Question 2: What are your weaknesses when playing poker?
      Sometimes i'm playing when i'm tired also i'm tilting, the problem is that i'm tilting because of the things outside the poker, ex: let's say my sis is coming and starting to tell me to go eat,or go to buy food etc.. and i am in middle of an MTT i start to lose my concentration and after a badbeat i go on tilt even if it's my fault of not concentrating to play my best.

      Question 3: What does it mean to play tight aggressive?
      Well in my mind tight aggresive in most of cases is the best way to play but on some cases is good to play a little loose aggresive.
      Tight aggresive means to play some good hands + premium ones and make the other players to pay hard that's when i hit nuts and to fold when i don't have the nuts in both cases i should put pressure on them so they can fold even if they have better hands then me


      Edit: also srry for my bad english

      Welcome to the Course and Best of Luck. Good job! Homework #1 Done!

      About SnG hands I would rather say nope, I can't really do much with them since I am not specialist in them. This is a cash game course. :)

      Easiest way to fight against tilt is to set up stop-loss technique. Which means if you for example have lost more than 3BIs for a session then you just stop the session for some time. The BI amount is set up from your own results. Some may put it higher, some lower. Also after the stop you can spend some time with evaluation part to become better.

      True that that's the problem with MTT/SnGs that if someone comes and tells you to do something you can't sit-out or anything. But with cash it's the opposite you can still sit out whenever you want. Haven't considered switching over as I see you already started with the course. :)

      Tight style is usually called playing selected hands. Like following the Starting Hand Chart. Aggressive should be also pretty clear that already the word says how you should be playing. But the problem playing aggressively is that you have to watch that you don't play too aggressive. Find good spots, find good targets. About The tight-aggressive strategy you can read in this article: "What is the Big Stack Strategy?"

      Hopefully you will enjoy the Course.

      You can continue. :) I will then just pick all the homeworks together if I will start evaluating them.

      Don't worry about the editing stuff. :D I am doing it time to time as well.

      HW2:

      Question 1: What do you think you could play differently than suggested in the BSS Starting Hands Chart and why?
      A9s - A2s if one player minimum raise i should call not fold :)

      Question 2: Do you have questions about your preflop play? Post your hand for evaluation.
      Not sure if i made the right decision

      Question 3: What is the equity of AKo against the top 5% range? 5% means 88+, AJs+, KQs, AKo.

      Equity is

             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP1    46.32%  37.92%   8.41% { AKo }
      MP2    53.68%  45.27%   8.41% { 88+, AJs+, KQs, AKo }

      Good job! Homework #2 Done!

      That's true, if we get min-raised then we are getting very good odds and with those hands you can even consider Calling. But keep in mind that don't try to overplay any TP type of hands but rather play them passively and for pot control.

      About Question #3:

             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    46.32%  37.92%   8.41% { AKo }
      UTG+1  53.68%  45.27%   8.41% { 88+, AJs+, KQs, AKo }

      Hopefully you enjoy the Course so far.
