      Don't play like a robot. You must play with brain.

      Could you give me more details about that based on the posted hand?

      on the river you don't have a value shove, you have to think about what hands villian can call you with here - could even be close to a fold.. do you think villian is betting worse hands?

      When you shove what worse hands do you think are going to call you? does King ten really play like this i dont think so? vs his value range AhTh,QQ,KQ,KJ,55

      You should think about not only your absolute hand strength (top pair top kicker) but also the board texture... what worse hands can my opponent call me with?

      Also sometimes as a tell alot of fish donk bet the river they have a strong hand, but for you think more about what your villian can call you with and not only about your own hand

      I think that "zxcvbnmaca" and "mattyvx" have a point here, and I can't understand why you just raise 1bb preflop, you are giving your opponents way to good odds,
      to call with almost any two, you have to let him pay if he wants to see the flop.

      Those are good tips. I think you pointed the exact mistake I am making.

      Thank you very much! :f_drink:
