      Hi ropa, also a welcome from my side! Very unusual to find players without HUD on these stakes!
      Would be interesting to see some of your hands and how you apply your game plan + your reads to make a profit - looking forward to it!

      Hi.

      Time for a little update.

      Ive been running pretty bad lately, since friday I am down 2k usd so my BR is 1.9k usd
      For you to know I am actually feeling like I am not playing as well as you might think, Im playing pretty much BE.
      Every time I get an upswing I lose that profit really fast and then I make very slow progress till next upswing and then I lose again.
      Im switching my strategy every week, sometimes even every day since I dont know how I should play, I dont know what style fits me the best, should I play loose or should I play tight.
      If I play tight I end up folding too much and bleed money nonSD, if I play loose I end up throwing my money away even more and play too much marginal situations, yet the upswings and short term lucks are greater.

      Today I had a hand where we played 3 way the hand went like this:

      nl100

      UTG(100bb) opens 3.5bb
      MP(100bb) calls 3.5bb
      Fold
      Fold
      Hero(100bb) (SB) raise 14,5 BB (QQ)

      ALL fold MP CALL.

      FLOP 658r

      I cbet 1/2 pot
      MP JAMS


      I had no info on him, I had played like 10 hands on the table and haven noticed any info that would help me to make decisions

      I tanked pretty long, and I came to conclusion that, he might have 77,99+ and I called. He might also have sets but would he instajam there? He end up showing me A7s and his straight got there.

      I would be thankful if some low-midstakes winning reg would share his ideas on this hand and give me some advice on opening ranges.
      At the moment I feel like I dont want to proceed playing because I feel so uncertain about my play.

      He ropa,

      how is it going? Don't miss the update for us in our Get Rich or Die Tryin' - The Bankroll Challenge - Reporting thread
      For the hand above - i am unfortunately no expert :-( Maybe our hand discussion forum would get more replies?

      In my eye a 7 makes a good move with the push because of the FE, on the other hand - how many 7s are in the 3bet calling range?
