      Hello,

      I want to ask you to post only one hand in a single thread in the future. Thanks in advance.

      #1

      Quite an easy stack off here. When he shoves, I think he is even more towards having hands like JJ-QQ/AK, rather than KK+.


      #2

      4bet and get it in pre.

      Could you explain me your flop plan here?

      Best,
      Plamen

      On flop my idea was to represent QQ here, I can't really understand if I was representing QQ why I didn't shove on turn though.
      At flop I thought I can beat AQ, AK, JJ and maybee TT, and only hands that destroy's me are QQ and AA, only way how I can make AA fold could be if I as plaid I would ship turn .. that's just my opinion

      NOOOOOO!! :f_cry:
      first, on hand 2, just 4bet and get in preflop, yeah.

      but let's expand on a few points on bluffing:

      - don't try to make overpairs fold in a 3bet pot (specially not AA)
      - don't try to rep super narrow ranges (ie, sets only) when you're bluffing

      you want to bluff people when you think that they are weak, not when they are strong.
      you also don't rep sets very well because being in position you'd probably call and slowplay in position.

      in that spot, there is no reason at all as to why you would want to turn KK into a bluff. as you said yourself, there are enough hands that you beat.
      it's a pretty dry board so just play it like your entire range and call down.

      again, you could just have 4bet preflop.
      if you have been running bad recently, that might be getting in the way of your game.
