      Hello to all and sorry for my bad English :sorry:

      My past in poker as a fish is not importante, the only thing that i achieved, playing single table SNG and some bónus :sifflote: , was Money to buy HM2 Small Stakes.
      Totally my fault and the reason is that despite being registered in Pokerstrategy, I studied very few articles and not consistently, I play very few hands, and the discipline............

      Few weeks ago I saw the "No Limit Beginners course with confidant91" and start follow it (not live because i can't at that hour), now and following his advice, I'm starting this blog.

      For now, my objective is not become a Pro Poker Player. Learning is the goal I want.
      To measure it, I thought the next:
      => My first long term objective is to play at NL50 consistently.

      To achieve that, I have some milestones that will help me:
      => Follow this course until the end
      => As this course is for NL2 and NL5:
      -> update this blog once a week until i get NL10
      => NL10 reach over the next year

      I don't know if it's too easy or to dificult, but with the few time I have to play and study, I'm happy if achieve this :f_tongue:

      Before finishing, for this week, I want to thank confidant91, for his time and effort.

      Hi all,

      Maybe a good idea to post also some hands on our Hand discussions for No Limit board. If I check out the hands you posted last time you have some sizing issues.

      A4s (2) I would bet smaller on the flop so you don’t need to committed yourself on a turn bet or against a passive player you can bet pot size and shove the turn.

      Also the AA is qua sizing not to great. I would 3 bet a little bit smaller. If you make it like 40c you have also change the MP will call and than you could bet the flop less than 1/3 of your stack if the pot is lower than your stack and shove the turn.

      Hopefully this week was a great success for you.

      Cheers,

      Thks SDK1987 :f_thumbsup:

      I not yet started posting hands in the Hand discussions for No Limit board, because i'm so in the beginning that it is "easy" to see where I have room for improvement.
      When i do the review of my hands, it's easy to find situations where i start to invent and not follow any strategy.
      By now I have to try to be disciplined and escape the tilt :f_frown:

      Small advices like yours, are very useful for my game, realy....
      Seriously, thank you very much.

      In a few time, I think I'm in conditions to start posting hands on Hand discussions for No Limit board :f_pleased:

      By now I make many mistakes :f_biggrin:
      But I'm trying :f_drink:

      These last weeks it has been difficult, but I'm starting to keep away from tilt much more times :f_thumbsup: not perfect but much better :f_drink:

      Hands which lost more than 50 BBs, are less and less.....

      Said that, let's go to the hands of the week:

      My worst hands this week were:

      1. It's a 3bet pot so, I don't fold the overpair (bad decision :f_biggrin: )

      Haha made my day to see my nick name in the title of your blog, havent read the blog yet but i will follow. Maybe better to start with the course on nl5 and nl10 since you will have to improve your game quite a lot even after the course to beat nl10!

      A few interesting hands I think.

      First hand betting in to 3 people with top pair weak kicker against the pre-flop aggressor is thin. I would normal check-call here and her-evaluate the turn. As played you change you’re hand in a bluff on turn and all weaker hands folds the flop already. Not sure if a random player on NL5 will fold to often here. As played I would shipped the river with trips for value.

      Second hand I don’t know what the plan was, but I don’t like the bet on flop against 2 villains with middle pair and 2nd barrel on turn. Also the 3 bet bluff is thin against a random player I think and I would 3 bet max 45c in position.

      The third hand looks pretty standard.

      First hand of the winning hands I would check/shove the river with my FH. Further it looks fine to me.

      Second hand looks pretty standard. I expect the SB will check/raise with a set or flush draw like this.

      Third hand is a standard situation I think.

      How it’s going this month so far?

      Cheers,

      About first and second hand I have to confess something...... I'm still not very good at controlling my tilts :f_cry:
      I think i'm better, but I still have much work ahead....... One thing thas has helped a little is not see results during the sessions.

      First hand of the winning hands I would check/shove the river with my FH. Further it looks fine to me.
      When to shove is ANOTHER thing that I have to improve... I think I have a big leak here.......

      For now, this month I'm +-7€ up.

      Thanks for your time

      First hand is pretty standard I think. I would bet a little bit less on the turn with trips, because than you don’t committed yet if you bet $1,50 or so.

      Second hand I would call the flop indeed and her-evaluate the turn. On this turn I would call as well if he bets a normal size bet. As played I would bet less than 1/3 of his remaining stack and than it’s still difficult for me to fold a over pair. Now you’re committed for sure.

      Third hand looks pretty standard. Only it’s difficult to make a good bet sizing against his funky stack. I would bet approximately 90c and call his all-inn.

      The winning hands looks pretty standard if you didn’t count the second hand. I would only call pre-flop with KTs OOP. The hand played pretty good post-flop and you don’t want to play a big pot without hitting the board. As played you’re in a 4 way pot with middle pair with a backdoor flush draw. I don’t think you can value bet here and it’s also difficult to let them fold a better hand like a Ace or 2 pair+ hand and a flush draw isn’t folding as well. I would check it and give up on a decent bet. As played is turn standard and I would make a small value bet on river. You want a call of a Ace or so and he will fold that on a over bet shove most likely without any info about him. Now you get most likely only action of better or trips as well.

      Good luck this week :gl:
