      Playing with the Short Stack strategy, I think that you commit some mistakes.

      On the second example, you bet on a draw that you entered without raising (was a free hand from the BB). Sometimes is understandable doing that. Sometimes you have reads over your opponent.

      An the last example was a big mistake. You bet with nothing, trying a steal which is fine. But calling the re-raise was a mistake. One because you should never invest money on a hand with less than Top-pair, top-kicker. Second, because if a J comes on the river, completing your straight, he could have a better straight. Third, there was a flush draw on the board.

      Why did you call the re-raise.

      Hand 1: Fold flop, you have a trash hand with the overcard on the board.
      Hand 2: I like it the way you played this hand. You have a monsterdraw and you must make the pot bigger. You were all-in on the river with your 2 pair, so that's good. (make a note of Villain calling every street with the nuts!!!!)
      Hand 3: c/f all the way.

      PS: Give every hand it's own topic, makes it easier to look at them.

      I did not see the results writing this and I suggest you remove the results everytime you post a hand ;)

      Hand1: Either pushing or folding is a good way. Folding is better because it prevents variance.
      He donkbets potsized and there is 1 overcard on the board. Scenario could be 1] he is holding a ten, 2] Trips, 3] low pocket pair , 4]2 Overcards

      Against 2 out of 4 you are +EV but against 2 overcards your still only about 60% favourite. Nevertheless I should push here too.

      Hand2:
      Betting potsized to 50c is better post-flop HeadsUp than 40cents.

      On the turn you have considered a made hand and you bet again. Bet potsized once again for maximum value.

      On the river its an easy push if a blank comes.

      Hand3:
      Against 2 Opponents I would check/fold all the way. You called a reraise on the turn with Air, why did you do that?
      You have to invest 80c to win 3.1 so 1:3.875 and still that ain't enough to your OESD draw with 1 card (1:4,9)

      Hi jmackenzie,


      Hand1: according to basic strategy you have to fold this flop. when you have a read that he donkbets much or that he is a huge fish you can consider a call.

      Hand2: I really like the way you played the Hand. No chance to not value bet him to death.

      Hand3: You decided to take a step at the pot on the turn which is not good cause to many cards which are in there playing zone are on the board. But could you plz explain me why you call the re raise ? please don't tell me that you called on your gut shot to the idiot end.
