      The opponent is reg-ish, and is leaning towards good LAG.

      So, what do you think? Basically every street was non-standart play for me, but I think I played it well.

      Hello meepwn,

      Flop: You are opening such hands but you ain't even CBetting, I don't really get it? :( How you ending up with profit with such a hand if you don't even CB dry boards.

      As played
      Turn: Why are you calling with Q high here? :f_eek:

      As played
      River: Totally WOW, perfect example how people tend to overplay their TP hand and how you shouldn't be playing it. :( I am just curious, what makes you think you played it well? Explain your thoughts, really eager to hear them.

      Best Regards.

      wow :D didn't seem that terrible to me at the time

      flop: I know he expects me to c-bet a lot here, probably any two cards, and as i said, c-betting is standart for me. That means he will c/r and float A LOT, because I will defend basically only with a pair or better, which is a small portion of my range.

      (By the way, would you c-bet/fold here with AK or KQ for example?)

      Anyway, say I c-bet to 2$, and he check/raises me to 6.5$. I need to continue AT LEAST 46% of the time, and if I continue with ANY pair, or gutshot, or open ender (30% of my range), he can make a very profitable c/r with any two cards.

      So c-bet is no good.
      turn: i think he will bet a lot, because I was supposed to c-bet, and didn't. This is a bit harder to calculate, but I think its profitable to float, given this assumtions.


      river ... dunno. He showed up with 89 or 9T, I don't remember which. Basicallly I don't think he will c/r with a real hand here, ever, because I played it really weird up to this point, therefore he can't rely on me making a bet on the river, AND because he might read me to have 33, 44 or 55 which will obv check behind.
