      Okay, I know i played this hand terribly and i didnt even realise i didnt have auto rebuy to max on (ill usually always have it on and never play with less than 100BB) i realised after i was starting to tilt and took a break, i called pre as a spec hand, but against UTGs range i guess he would pay me off if a hit a monster, i called the flop with my gutshot as i was getting great implied odds against his range.

      The turn was a terrible call, with the flush draw and possible boat there my gutshot might not even been live, however, as played when he checked to me on the river i decided to go for a near pot sized bet to try and get him off his hand as i thought he would fold a lot of Ax hands, was this an aweful bluff?

      Hello Castle93,

      Add to full stack if playing BSS.

      Preflop: Rather fold it vs unknown UTG who has mainly dominated your hand. And how horrible you played it postflop you should definitely fold it.

      As played
      Postflop: Fold it on the flop most likely, cause it hardly hits his range and you don't get the implied odds for GS and obviously never do that on turn. + Horrible bluff on river.

      Best Regards.

      It seems to me that you were on tilt..

      Don't worry too much about that, it happens to the best players also!
