      So today we had a spontaneous public private coaching with me and Terrorblade on FL 0,25/0,50. After some trouble getting the tables set up we finally got started and I ended up coaching for quite a while

      To the coaching itself: It was quite slow at the start - although I seemed to get into quite a bunch of strange spots. Terrorblade disagreed with a lot of my decisions - where I was obviously 'Value-betting' too loose - but just like in my SSS coaching I seemed to be doing it in the right spots.

      Stats:
      Hands: 414
      VPIP: 13,0
      PFR: 9,3
      AF: 3,0
      WtSD: 38,5%
      W$wsF: 41,5%
      BB/100: 16,8
      Profit $17,40


      Some of the more interesting hands to discuss (I'm a FL fish ;) ):

      In this hand I actually announced during the coaching that I would value bet the river against the opponent's JJ. Before Terrorblade could stop me, I did and villan called with JJ.

      This bet is obviously very questionable though and I'm sure a veteran FL player will be glad to explain why :)

      In the next hand it was ironically me that was playing "too tight". As a NL player I wanted to simply call the river against the re-raise. Terrorblade insisted I 3 bet and so I did. Villan's play is obviously horrible - and I once more took the train to value town.

      I thought I was value betting against K :heart: T :spade: on the river (even though everyone in the coaching tried to keep my from doing so). I guess I'm just stubborn ;)

      Call flop and check raise raise turn? Apparently this was the line I was supposed to take. I decided against it and was quite sure to have lost when the river card hit. Lo and behold villan who was a 76/35 maniac actually only had the flushdraw ;)

      Erm.. and gutshot draw to the straight. ;)

      Looks like a nice coaching... nice one Soy! :D

      BTW I would have played the pocket Qs hand the same way - villian appeared pretty agressive.. without reads can't believe he would have played Ax or a Tx this way post flop or KK this way from pre flop on and the river is an effective blank.

      Then again... I'm not a veteren FL player. Yet. :D
