      Hi moneymakerzzz,

      I'm not sure I understand your first post. :)

      Do you want me to move it somewhere, or this will turn into some epic blog with mysterious beginning? :) (I hope thats the case)

      Let me know if you have any questions.

      Kind regards,
      Fran

      Hero (BTN): $5 (100 bb)
      SB: $6.24 (124.8 bb)
      BB: $5 (100 bb)
      UTG: $5.93 (118.6 bb)
      MP: $7.88 (157.6 bb)
      CO: $11.97 (239.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 9 8
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.15, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.50, 2 folds, MP raises to $0.85, Hero calls $0.35

      Flop: ($1.77) T A A (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.90, MP calls $0.90

      Turn: ($3.57) 4 (2 players)
      MP bets $0.10, Hero raises to $3.25 and is all-in, MP calls $3.15

      River: ($10.07) Q (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Villian:
      vpip / pfr / hands
      75 / 29 / 24
      FT3B - 0
      FCB - 100
      FTFCB - 20



      PRE-FLOP:
      Since the guy was fish I decided to bluff him out of the hand, when I got 4bet, I called it due to pot odds.

      FLOP:
      When he x, I decided to represent A, since he had 100% cbet stat and he's unlikely to have A, so I decided to bet half the pot.

      TURN:
      When he called my flop bet, and led small, it just felt so weak so I decided to shove here.

      So I think it was wrong to 3bet such an opponent with such a hand, since he isn't folding to 3bet ,as well he isn't folding to flop cbets, so my flop bet was bad.
      In general I shouldn't 3bet this guy unless I have value hand.

      CO: $5.22 (104.4 bb)
      BTN: $5 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J A
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.13, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.35) 6 A 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.23, Hero calls $0.23

      Turn: ($0.81) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.25, BTN raises to $0.80, Hero calls $0.55

      River: ($2.41) 2 (2 players)

      Results:
      $5.59 pot ($0.23 rake)
      Final Board: 6 A 6 7 2
      Hero mucked J A and lost (-$2.77 net)
      BTN showed K J and won $5.36 ($2.59 net)


      Villian:
      VPIP / PFR / Hands
      14 / 12 / 300

      3B / FT3B
      2 / 100

      BU RFI 30
      FCB 78


      PRE-FLOP:
      I decided to call for value.

      FLOP:
      I think I gain more value, by checking here, because he will CB a lot, when he CB I don't really think it's good idea to raise, because by raising he will definetly call or 3bet with 6x, he might fold weak Aces, but by just calling we don't protect against flush draw. I think calling is the best option here even considering FD.

      TURN:
      It's ugly card, I dont really know reason why I decided to donk bet here, but IMO the best play would be to X/C once, and bet 55% of the pot on river if 6 or A comes

      Preflop: Hero is MP with 5 A
      Hero raises to $0.20, CO calls $0.20, BTN folds, SB calls $0.18, BB calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.80) 4 3 7 (4 players)

      Turn: ($1.80) Q (2 players)

      Results:
      $4.20 pot ($0.17 rake)
      Final Board: 4 3 7 Q
      Hero mucked 5 A and lost (-$1.90 net)
      CO mucked and won $4.03 ($2.13 net)



      FLOP:
      I decided to CB due to double GSSD

      TURN:
      I think I should CB turn as well, and when he minraise I should call since we are getting 22% pot odds and our odds to improve are 17% , I think due to pot size
      he will be comited to call any river.

      MP: $5.93 (118.6 bb)
      CO: $6.36 (127.2 bb)
      BTN: $12.17 (243.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 2 A
      MP folds, CO calls $0.05, BTN raises to $0.20, Hero raises to $0.60, BB folds, CO calls $0.55, BTN folds

      Flop: ($1.45) J T 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, CO raises to $1.60, Hero folds

      Results:
      $3.05 pot ($0.13 rake)
      Final Board: J T 4
      Hero mucked 2 A and lost (-$1.40 net)
      CO mucked and won $2.92 ($1.52 net)



      PRE-FLOP:
      Since the CO is fish I expect BU to isolate wider - so that gives me reason to 3bet more often.

      FLOP:
      Board is kind a wet, and J or T hits his range, so I decided to CB, due to fact that our villian FTCB is 20%, I think I should just give it up right away without cbet
