      Edit: Sorry that the next few pages look horrible and I doubt I would even read them so this might prove to be a pointless exercise (well actually not, because it has given be a lot to reflect on). I just could not stop once I started... oh what about this spot... oh yes and this one etc, etc.



      Hi all popped in again.

      Having a little recce on Hypers so better put some work in. As part of a HH review these hands came up and I thought I had better record them so that I can firstly check the correct play and also have a record to look back on to say " wow did I really do that " :)

      Placing these hands here as a little storage point for me to seek answers too. Feel free to comment whilst I investigate further.

      Q. Grrrrrrrrrrrr about 3 or 4 times this spot has come up and I need to solve it. I feel that i should be stealing, and am sure I definitely should be at higher Bi level so I should get into correct habits from the get go. But just not sure ?

      Q. Something different, TFFT. I am never folding here but... this player had only ever limp folded and now they 3 x, should I be picking up in these moves? They prob only have a few hands they do this with and in which case how does 99 hold up. Should in fact be more worried by a min raise?
