      I don't have many words about your play... let some coach examine it ;) because imho it's: fold pf, fold flop, fold turn...

      No Vlad, you're a joke. Saying "poker is not for you" just because I don't play by the book, if everybody played by the book then poker would die because it would just be mindless robots who only come to life if they see an A or K in their hand.

      I'm not dissing the strategy, I'm just skeptical about the zealous attitude some people here have about it.

      I'm not bragging I won these 2 hands, I know I did it "wrong", that's why I posted them. I don't need applauding, I need advice.

      That's it, I'm done here.

      First of all I would like to see here postings that do not offend people but help them. Thank You.


      Honestly, I wouldn´t advice you to try to steal the blinds on this limit, since the average player on this limit is way to loose, that you have enough Fold Equity here. So without stats and on this limit, its a no go.

      So you should have folded preflop.

      But lets assume you did the steal attempt. Then your second mistake ist, to check/call the flop, since you have nothing. Better line here is to Bet/fold, since on such a board you have Fold Equity. If he calls you or raises you on the Flop, you have an easy Fold.

      And in general, its ok that we do not play after a chart all the time, but if you are a beginner and play on low limits, it helps you to move up in limits and minimize the Variance. For such moves like you tried to pull of here, you need a lot of experience and reads of your opponents.

      Hope I could help you.
