      Hey MareksVas

      welcome to our blogging section. It's awesome that you decided to write a blog and the planning side of things looks pretty solid on your part. The material that you plan on studying looks very good imo.

      All the best,
      Luke

      Time for update.
      Due to work,english exam (waiting for results,fingers crossed) and holidays in-between had little time for poker, but managed to watch some coachings and play couple of sessions. Unfortunately gonna lose my gold and drop down to silver next month, but that's not the end of the world.
      Switched rooms for NL5 SH from Titan to 770 due to great promo that's running atm. Also that way gonna get more SP per dollar rake. Player pool stays same, so that's just ideal. Gonna play some MTTs on last day of june (770 depositor freeroll ,some micro mtts and so on).

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has T:spade: T:diamond:

      fold, fold, CO raises to 3 BB, Hero raises to 9 BB, SB calls 8.6 BB, fold, CO calls 6 BB

      Flop: (28 BB, 3 players) 9:diamond: 3:diamond: 7:diamond:
      SB checks, CO checks, Hero bets 17 BB, SB calls 17 BB, CO raises to 79.4 BB and is all-in, Hero ?

      The question is can I call him there? I'm getting 2.27:1 pot odds to call.So i need 31% equity to justify call. I put him on either a set, nut flush draw, or overpair with flush draw (JJ,QQ with J or Q of diamonds)

      UTG raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, Hero calls 3 BB, fold, fold

      Flop: (7.4 BB, 2 players) A:spade: K:spade: 6:spade:

      River: (34.6 BB, 2 players) 3:heart:
      UTG bets 17.2 BB, Hero ?

      Villain seems to be a nit. How should I adjust pre flop and post flop when he opens from UTG?
