      I think my game is too exploitable when I don't hit the flop. Everytime I check the turn is because I gave up the hand. So I'm trying to do something about it but I think I'm doing the wrong thing :f_biggrin:

      Should I just cbet these turns or can I xr them sometimes? Maybe xc is the worse decision, isn't it?

      I don't think you can check/call the Turn in the first hand and the check/call on the River with your AK in the 2nd hand is wishful thinking as well.

      In hand 1 , you still beat a flushdraw, QT, KQ/KT so I would check/shove it right there as people don't bet 2 streets as a bluff mostly. You can see this pattern very quickly among fish

      In hand 2, the same principle applies but now you play against a reg who might handread. Here it doesn't matter because if he is only looking at his own hand you should fold the River. If he is thinking about your range, you should still fold because he can't bluff the River profitably

      Maybe it is me but I think you are owning yourself by constantly thinking ''oh f** I get exploited every time''. How can they exploit you if they play 16+ tables for example ? Or how can they exploit you if they cannot valuebet thinly?

      Best regards,
