      Hi all,

      I was updating this on my blog, but figured it was super boring, so moving it here

      After getting the 50$ starting money, I began playing a small positive/breakeven game at $0.2 sng's at poker770 (after about 150 games), but figured I was learning nothing at the level. Besides it was poor BRM, with 200 BI's.

      Hence over the weekend, decided to play a few dozen $0.5 sng's, And the going is not great right now, so decided to come here.

      At 14 games since the start of my run, i have been ITM 3 times, and am facing a new downswing of 8BI's. I know this is not as bad as it gets, but I would defi want to plug any and every leak you people can find!

      Todays 5 sng run: 1 third place, rest not ITM

      Table 1: 3rd place final hand:
      Preflop: Hero is BB with K :spade: , Q :diamond:
      BU folds,
      SB raises 150 to 300,
      Hero raises 4142 to 4442 ( (AI)), SB calls
      Flop: (8885) 4 :club: , 2 :spade: , 2 :diamond: 4 :heart: 5 :spade:
      Final Pot: 8885
      SB shows (A :spade: , A :club:)

      Poor push? His min raise looked weak.. Probably should have 3 bet and folded to a shove.

      Table2: Early double up followed by lots of folding. Then 1 very poor play:

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K :diamond: , 4 :spade:
      3 fold,
      Hero raises 150 to 300, 2 fold, BB calls
      Flop: (675) Q :spade: , 6 :heart: , 3 :spade: (2 Players)
      BB checks, Hero checks
      Turn: (675) T :spade: (2 Players)
      BB bets 150,
      Hero raises 150 to 300, BB calls
      River: (1275) 6 :club: (2 Players)
      BB bets 150, Hero calls
      Final Pot: 1575
      Hero shows a pair of sixes (K :diamond: , 4 :spade:) → (6 :heart: , 6 :club: , Q :spade: , T :spade: , K :diamond:)
      BB shows two pairs, tens and sixes (A :club: , T :diamond:) → (T :spade: , T :diamond: , 6 :heart: , 6 :club: , A :club:)

      After this went all in with A5 :heart: against short stack push, who sucked out with 89 :heart: . Left me really shortstacked, and possibly tilting. Pushed K2o with 4BB's and lost.

      Table3:
      Shameful

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q :club: , T :club:
      UTG3 calls, Hero calls, MP2 calls, MP3 folds,
      CO raises 80 to 120, 3 fold, UTG3 calls, Hero calls, MP2 calls

      Flop: (540) A :heart: , T :heart: , 5 :spade: (4 Players)
      UTG3 checks, Hero checks, MP2 checks, CO checks

      Turn: (540) Q :heart: (4 Players)
      UTG3 checks,
      Hero bets 540, MP2 calls, 2 fold

      River: (1620) 3 :diamond: (2 Players)
      Hero bets 650 ( (AI)), MP2 calls

      Final Pot: 2920

      Results follow:
      Hero shows two pairs, queens and tens (Q :club: , T :club:) → (Q :heart: , Q :club: , T :heart: , T :club: , A :heart:)
      MP2 shows a flush, ace high (K :heart: , 6 :heart:) → (A :heart: , K :heart: , Q :heart: , T :heart: , 6 :heart:)

      Table 4:

      Very similar.. had the nut straight on the flop, but let villain make his flush. Then paid him off handsomely.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with K :heart: , T :spade:
      UTG1 calls, Hero calls, UTG3 calls, 5 fold, SB calls, BB checks

      Flop: (100) A :heart: , Q :diamond: , J :diamond: (5 Players)
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG1 checks,
      Hero bets 75, UTG3 calls, 3 fold

      Turn: (250) 8 :diamond: (2 Players)
      Hero bets 250, UTG3 calls

      River: (750) 3 :club: (2 Players)
      Hero bets 375,
      UTG3 raises 780 to 1155 ( (AI)),
      Hero bets 780 ( (AI))

      Final Pot: 3060

      Results follow:
      Hero shows a straight, ace high (K :heart: , T :spade:) → (A :heart: , K :heart: , Q :diamond: , J :diamond: , T :spade:)
      UTG3 shows a flush, ace high (A :diamond: , T :diamond:) → (A :diamond: , Q :diamond: , J :diamond: , T :diamond: , 8 :diamond:)


      Table 5:

      Full on tilt i suppose? Or maybe i was playing p/f
      75/150
      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q :club: , 7 :club:
      2 fold, MP3 calls, 2 fold,
      Hero raises 1347 to 1497 ( (AI)),
      BB bets 1565 ( (AI)), MP3 folds

      Flop: (3362.5) J :diamond: , 3 :club: , 2 :diamond: (2 Players)

      Turn: (3362.5) 3 :heart: (2 Players)

      River: (3362.5) 8 :diamond: (2 Players)

      Final Pot: 3362.5
      Results follow:
      Hero shows a pair of threes (Q :club: , 7 :club:) → (3 :club: , 3 :heart: , J :diamond: , 8 :diamond: , Q :club:)
      BB shows a flush, ace high (A :diamond: , 7 :diamond:) → (A :diamond: , J :diamond: , 8 :diamond: , 7 :diamond: , 2 :diamond:)

      table 1:
      weak ? what hands do you put thim on ? what better hands will he fold and what worse hands could he possibly call your push with ? I think there is really no point in 3-betting if you do not plan of calling all-in. KQ os sux as a hand :P

      I would call the min raise , and check/fold that dry flop .

      table 2:

      C-bet the flop !!! Your min raise on the turn makes no sense if you want to bluff bluff on the river :D

      table 3:

      You play makes no sense .Why would you bet the pot in a 3 way pot when this turn complete's all draws ?

      table 4:
      try to be more agressive on the flop and evaluete the turn . on this board :D in a donkament !

      the AA hand is standart

      With TT you are going broke anyway .

      Hey bohemia, thanks for the eval.

      Day one was terrible, so made my wall of shame.
