      Hi Imimba1,

      I don't like your flat pre- this hand can work ok as a 3bet bluff though because of the blocking effect.

      As played you can go for it if you know your opponent is not 2nd barrel happy.

      Best regards.

      Why is this a bad preflop call?
      His range looks wide. With A-high we probably have the best hand. Postlop I may even float if CBet size is small.
      In HU there is no way someone folding A9, it's a very good hand.

      OR

      I may not have the neceserry postflop skills yet to play this profitably.

      Well, it depends on yourself :p If you see that your opponent cbets like 70 % of time on flop and then turn 2/10, then calling with nearly any 2 is profitable, as long as you 2 are heads up. You can float with this then.

      Against a player that thinks and knows that you float you shouln't be calling that much, rather 3-bet of fold pre. Flat would work better if this was suited.

      Hello Imimba1,

      Preflop: Well, with calling you produce exactly those spots where you postflop waste tons of money. So is really calling the best? While I expect with cold calling you are even losing money than winning.

      As played
      Postflop: Floating is the same thing here, Kx hands -> enough of them in his range. By floating we never know either where we stand and he could just 2nd barrel it and we wont be able to Call whilst we don't even have backdoor FD. Therefore really think already preflop what you going to do with the hand. Also on the turn -> how many better hands do you expect to make to fold?

      Best Regards.

      Man, I should just play like a poker-bot and pure ABC...
      I level myself too many times I think. I'm going to try pure ABC for a bit, and see how it works out :f_biggrin:
