      Hi guys and girls, I have been around poker for about 10 months now mostly trying to learn but always failed to do some real genuine work in short I was goofing around for that period of time.

      So here I am, decided to start a blog because anything poker related that requires thinking should help.

      I'm currently playing 10NL, but decided to start all over again when it comes to learning poker, because I don't want to miss any valuable info, so for start I chose mbml's Yolosaurus which I am like 1/2 through already, and I would recommend it to anyone who struggles at micros. Later I'm planning on going through Weazel's latest 2 courses, so I'm set for some time.

      I have assigned him this range on the river and I have been a bit generous I think, because I don't expect to see Ax that often, actually almost never. So to me it felt like a pure bluff specially with that river bet size.

      Range

      Any thoughts on this one?

      First of all I’m no cash game player, but I don’t think he will ever semi bluff on turn like this. I think it makes not to much sense to do that. So I would fold the turn already here, because he will do this to often with value hands I think.

      Further I wish you all the best to beat the micro stakes on the short handed tables :gl:

      Cheers,
