      1. You have the nuts on the turn, how is there any question about this play?

      2. Only losing to 46,68,J8, absolutely fine in my opinion. The aggression is appropriate, there's not a lot of danger draws to protect from (results aside), but he's called your flop bet so why not get value on the turn as well?

      3. You missed your set so fold the flop. Minreraise is terrible, you have no fold equity because you're giving him 5 to 1 odds on a call so what can he fold there? I don't see any reason not to fold but if you feel he is cbetting with air and you can't fold just flat call. unsetted 44 is never a hand that you want to make a big pot with, even on a low flop like that. River seems like justice to me :f_p:

      1+2=bad luck 3=bad play, possibly due to tilt from 1+2?

      Hello srna10,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Could you next time post 1 hand per thread, it's also written in the rules to rather keep 1 hand per thread. :) To keep away the annoying scrolling part and we could focus on 1 hand only.

      First of all some thoughts about the game, try to use auto-rebuy if you have one or try not to forget to add to 100bb.

      Hand #1
      Pretty standard, we are never folding there, just don't be result oriented. ;)

      Hand #2
      Bet the flop bigger, bet the turn bigger and could easily even shove the river while would have less than pot size left. :) But now as played your only hope is that he also has some weaker sets there but it could be true that he might be capable of playing them. We don't know the opponent and how loose range to put him.

      Hand #3
      Preflop: Fold it, cause vs his stack you can't set-mine.

      As played
      Postflop: Why would you try to overplay a UTG range? Check/Fold it. Turn is pretty standard, might even Bet it smaller. ;)

      Best Regards.
