      Hello fuinha!

      Welcome to our blogging section, glad to see you here!

      I see you've got some quite well structured goals set up for yourself, that's about as a good a start as one can have I'd expect!

      Looking forward to following this and seeing you progress and bypass those goals with a margin!

      Regards,
      Richard

      check/raise is must for me. Don't think what they think....just bet. There is no chance that he would fold his aces on such board and If you check you give him free card and opportunity to catch ace.

      And if he was steeling? in such a board is good to c-bet, my re-raise would make him fold

      Profit is profit though, "not enough profit" still vastly beats losses. :)

      like you guys know im playing in PKR, and i was explorating their website i see this

      for me is something great because it gives a boost to keep trying.
      i think i can get top 50 easy.
      I'm going to receive at least $0,50 this month and i wish i can start playing the $0,30 sits.
      the only thing im not doing is playing cash games, i dont have head to play :f_mad: . Not really concerned about that, maybe next month. :f_biggrin:

      the way i see this situation is that if you do want to get it all in it's best to be the person shoving. with a strong draw you capitalise on the fold equity of getting it all in. so if villain is shoving into us then it is different - we have no fold equity. if villain is going all in it is possible he has a set so we can also discount a few outs :\ dodgey situation i think. don't overvalue it! you still only have a pair.

      Can you guys give me a opinion?
      do you think its profitable play NL2HU?
      play like profit-rake+bonus=profitable?
      what do you think? yes, no or try it?
      i can play in other skin of ipoker just to check it but i need some opinions :D

      i tested today if its profitable...
      played 914
      profit of $3,7
      and made 106 points
      its like 0,11 points per hand, if i play this all days i can get a bonus every 14 days...
      the guys are damn bad and if i get $0,10 every 500hands i get $3 at 15K hands and got to ad $5 bonus.
      made some counts and:
      0,11*914=106,75
      106,75*14=1494,50
      _________________
      0,10*15000/500=3
      3+5=8
      8*500/1500=0,27
      0,28=14bb
      i get 2bb/100hands

      yeah its a small sample but i want to keep the test for the rest of the month.
      if have other things i need to have in count please tell me :)
