      I know my blind play sucks big time but... bitch please... after 17k hands im down 25 buyins that really pisses me off

      now the real question, where do you guys think I'm not getting it?

      asking for some rude help...

      First of all its not a sample to judge anything, but lets take a look anyway. You need to increase your 3bet and you're squeezing only value. Seems that SB might be tighter. BB looks kinda bad. Loosing way too much.

      thanks I'm definately trying to adjust my skill on BB play by whatching some videos here, do you have any video for BB play to suggest?

      also trying to get my squeezing better, are there some videos that you would suggest for squeezing?

      Yes, there is a good video about squeezing from double2. Regarding to BB, cant suggest any at the moment, but if you find some, please let me know :f_p:

      Yop!

      am not a CG specialist but the exercice is interesting... let's give a try :)

      • The fact that yr river-call efficiency is bellow 1 means that you looze more than u win when you call on the river. So your hand reading skill is not the best and you should post and do more session review to work on it.

      • your 3b range is pretty tight as is your squeezing range. you should looze it more especially against recreational players. Isolate them in big pot with a merged range close to TT+, AT+, KJs, KQ (7.6%).
        Against reg you should polarized your range w/ nuts and speculative hands ex : QQ+, AK, 56s, 76s, 78s, 89s, 9Ts. If the reg fold often to yr 3b look to wider it with hands such as T8s etc. dont use dominated hands for now because it seems you have problem to give up hands that have a marginal SDV.

        Edit : if you are playing FR don't widen too much (my advise are esspectially for the SH play).

      • your allin-ev is <0 and your 4b range seems pretty looze (3%). If you don't have a 4b/fold range, I would say that you try to broke too looze for your limit.
        You should look at this loozing hands in a vacuum to understand if u run bad or if u are not adapted to the limit. It is possible that in NL10 hands such JJ or AK are better to not broke préflop.... especially when u raise UTG !

      • your Ag-freq are pretty high especially turn and river. I would interpret it as a tendency to over-protect/over-value your hands and finishing in the river facing a range that crush you. but I am not sure of what I write because in this case your red line shoud be, at least more even.... Maybe be that your opponnents are on average too nitty and they value-cut you... i don't know! But there is leak in this area for sure !
        ... or ... are you playing FR ? (if not... I don't know) if yes, then, because of the number of opponents and your agression it is way more likely that there is a better hands front of you...
        You should then be less agressive and more pot-controling/inducing.


      summary :
      If you are playing FR, I advise you to move on SH tables. Your style is more suited to this game-play.
      I would say you play actually maybe a bit too looze. Playing looze in FR CG means more chance to have a strong hand front of you, so complicated spot with hands such as AJ/ AT OOP etc. It also means that you need to adapt and to be able to give up/pot-controling more often w/ relatively good SDV-hands....
      If you are not, then I need more stats to understand what is going-on (especially turn and river pattern by position). But I am a SNG/MTT player so a CG grinder could easily be more accurate than me on your feedback.


      PS : sorry for my english, hope it was understandable :)

      Include Raise 1st in stats next time please.
      1) Steal more OTB
      2) 3Bet more OTB
      3) Cold Call more OTB
      4) Flat more 3bets
      5) Cbet WAY LESS on the turn. Your Flop CBet - it's high especially oop, optimal vs a good player should be in the 50ish range BUT you have high success so keep doing that in regular pots. People fold too much to your cbets which is a common leak at NL10, 51% success OTB means you can cbet any2
      But that means that your turn cbet is a big leak - 60% is high on its own. BUT you are exploiting people by cbetting flop too much. Which means you get to the turn with sub optimally wide range, and they in turn get there with a suboptimally strong range. Your really low Turn cbet success rate of 31% is no surprise. From the sample it's clear you should keep cbetting a lot, BUT to cbet, print money, then give up without equity on the turn a lot more.

      This vid is really good and tells you about sizings on flops as well, definitely watch it:
      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/video/36171/

      These are the main things I'd say. You will be easy to play against with your flop cbetting strategy, you likely dont protect checks+cbet too much but it doesn't seem people are picking up on it at NL10 so you should beat that limit without concerning yourself with that.

      You are pretty lucky though - all you need to do is focus on fundamentals one at a time and you have a lot of room for improvement

      I hope this help :
      - Open more hands preflop ( you opening 16% and it's very low you should be opening 23%)
      - steal more and 3bet more only vs regulars who fold to steal and vs 3bet ( work on you auto profit )
      - 4bet bluff vs aggressive 3bettors
      - cbet bluff vs players that fold to cbet and value bet vs players who don't fold ( this also go whit the auto profit )

      if you do it properly you should see a significant improvement in your red line .

      no offens to players who say 3bet more and play more hands but it is such a bad thing to say to him because he doest know in which situation he should do it so he does it in wrong situations.

      your leaks are many but mostly you are too tight postflop(wtsd 21%)
      people make you fold your good hands too often so you have a HUGE leak postflop.
      My tip for you is to make half pot bets postflop unless you have nuts and open raise smaller from any position (2.5x) since you are such a fish when facing a 3bet.
      This would also allow you to call a few more 3bets :pokerface:

      you do have a leak preflop since you call 3bet 16%.
      You are perfect opponent for me to 3bet with any 2 cards until i get bored and close my session.
      when you call , your range is tight so i can get away from my weak hand easy and surprize you when i got you beat

      another bad thing you do is you cbet too much with a wide range.
      I mean you open raise 50% from SB,BTN and you cbet from SB=70%, from BTN=40%.

      As OP hasn't come back on this yet, I thought I'd add - I think we can be confident that he is already playing SH from the quantity of hands played by position - If it were Full Ring, then he'd have more hands from EP + MP than he has in SB, BB, BTN or CO. Because they're all about 3k hands, we know that he is only playing in 6 different seats.

      EDIT: Lol - Just noticed Belgianbeer posted this 6 months ago.....
