      Once again, my small blind leak shows its ugly face....(according to elephant stats i call way too many 3bets OOP) so i am trying to fix it...heres a great example of me spewing without thinking about opponents range....

      MP2 has been in every hand since i sat down so i didnt give his 3bet too much credit,

      On the flop middle pair and flushdraw looked quite good so checked to induce a bet from guy with AF of 4, he bet as i expected...

      and on the turn when he re-raised i started putting him on 45,66,77 or maybe pocket 2's , obviously the bigger str8 worried me but felt i couldnt put him on that exact hand and trips were most likely judging by the min-raise...

      Again, same problem as always; should i fold pre-flop to avoid drama or should i balance by sometimes 4betting the fishes 3bet? :f_confused:

      Hello delanonunes,

      Fold preflop! As long I saw what you did postflop and which is really bad you have to fold it preflop! MUST! Or you are going to spew just the money away.

      Best Regards.
