      Hey guys,

      I am starting this thread for our coaching later today.

      Please post some of your hands and walk us through your hand reading thought process.

      During this coaching I will present hands created by me and also take hands posted by you. The goal of this coaching will be to work with YOU on improving your hand reading (process). We will look back at all the different concepts/tips we covered in the last 2 sessions and use them to work through different hand examples.

      Looking forward to seeing you guys at the coaching.

      Bogdan

      Hero (BTN): 157.63 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 9:heart: A:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 2 BB, SB calls 1.5 BB, BB calls 1 BB

      Flop: (6 BB, 3 players) 9:spade: 3:club: 6:club:
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets 5 BB, fold, BB raises to 17 BB, Hero calls 12 BB

      actually i did put him on some combo draws and didnt want to stackoff against combodraw and rather stackoff on turn that doesnt complete flush

      Turn: (40 BB, 2 players) T:spade:
      BB bets 23 BB, Hero raises to 108 BB, BB calls 58 BB and is all-in

      on this turn am not ultra happy cause he can have some combodraws with Tens like T8s or T7s and it turns out to be a spew though

      River: (202 BB, 2 players) 2:diamond:
      Players agreed to run it twice.

      River #2: (202 BB, 2 players) Q:spade:

      BB shows K:club: 9:club: (One Pair, Nines)Board #1 (Pre 29%, Flop 46%, Turn 27%)Board #2 (Pre 29%, Flop 46%, Turn 27%)

      I would have certainly folded on the turn instead of calling his bet, he could have had a straight or a flush at that point.
