      In the next coaching I would be interested to hear your thoughts about the full house hand you stacked off with on the river.

      Was it the 55 hand or was it 66? The guy on your left was an agro 3bettor but that doesn't mean he was an idiot or maniac postflop. I really think it was a fold to his push, I rarely see you ahead there if ever and often it's the case King.
      And yes I can and have found folds in those spots myself, altho0ugh it obviously 'depends' as usual! :) I would call a bet and fold to the push.
      My problem would be where my call/fold bb boundary would be.

      Some really good spots in this lesson and you presented and explained them very well - as always.

      Thank you and sorry if I waffled too much again.

      Mal.

      Hello ladies and gentleman, i feel sory but iwill not be able to do the coaching today.
      yesterday i did my coaching witrh a little temperature but today its gottern above 38° and i am just not able to concentrate on a thing like poker anymore.
      i dont now if ps. members read this early enough to get a different coach for today.
      im sorry that this comes so late again, but after my middays nap i just feel horrible instead of better as i hoped.

      greetings.

      Howdy guys,

      this week the coaching due to grummelers absence has to move to Saturday 5pm UTC - 6pm London - 7pm Berlin.

      damn it, didnt shipped the freroll but finished in 7th place for 12.5 $ :tongue:
      Guess this shows again, that playing those freerolls beside the cg tables can be really worth it.

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      $2.00


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, Q.
      UTG2 posts deadblind, MP1 posts deadblind, MP2 posts deadblind, UTG2 checks, MP1 checks, MP2 raises to $0.06, Hero raises to $0.40, CO calls $0.09(All-In), 5 folds, MP2 raises to $2.02, Hero ?

      2 blindposters and 1 of them made a small raise. I made a way too big 3bet, was hoping he would call anyway. Didn't expect a AI.
      What do you think such play normally is on micro limit?

      Well yes 3bet is too big and you cant call a 4bet all in unless hes on tilt/maniac. A random unknown 4bet range at nl2 is AK QQ KK AA. AQ is dominated by that small range of hands.

      allways have a look @ the odds first :)
      pot = 0,09 (CO) + 0,4 (you) + 2,0 (MP only 2$ because thats your effective stack) + 0,03 (blinds) = 2,52$ and you need to call 1.60$
      2,52/1,60=1,57/1 odds which means you need 1/2,57=38% equity to make the call

      1,095,296 games 0.000 secs 8,219,059,200 games/sec

      Board:
      Dead:

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 24.420% 23.05% 01.37% 9472768 562640.50 { AcQd }
      Hand 1: 75.580% 74.21% 01.37% 30497247 562640.50 { QQ+, AKs, AKo }


      so against that monster tight range its an easy fold cause you got 24% equity.

      yea your 3bet is too high, 0,2$ would have done it as well :)
