      Hey Bogdan,

      So I took your advice, about just calling the flop and taking down the pot on the trun, in situations, when I might be ahead.

      Tell me what you think, about these ones :s_cool:

      And these are just teo hands I did similar lines about 5-6 times worked everytime. I think there was a bit of luck involved too though.

      You guys are doing a great job, this is really improving my game.

      Hi Botia,

      88:

      Villain seems really aggro so I'd check his barrel stats. Given he is opening in UTG his range is stronger so his double barrel appears stronger too. However, once you look at his bet size we can see that it's most likely not a strong hand and at best a draw. So your raise is actually good :)



      AJ:

      Similar to this hand we have villain betting small which implies weaker made hands and thus a raise can take it away.

      Keep in mind that we ideally want some equity (like backdoors) when floating/trying to raise to decrease the amount of FE that we need.

      Keep up the good work.

      Bogdan
