      Hi dangerousmind,

      This guy there is such a big fish. He won't be lucky for long.

      1st and 2nd hand were fine. But on the 3rd, why not push on turn? You hit top pair top kicker, made hand so go all in.

      Yea, on hand no.3 maybe it was better to bet on turn, tho the 3rd diamond scared me a bit, that's why I just checked.

      Thanks for your opinions, any judges ? :)

      1st hand is fine, bad luck for you

      2nd hand, you are betting more than half of your stack on the turn so just push since u are already committed

      3rd hand, it is correct to do a 2nd barrel since you have TPTK already

      don't be too worried about draws and stuff. you are playing SSS so top pair top kicker is more than enough to see the showdown. anyone who tries to play speculative hands against you will lose money to you in the long run since he doesn't get implied odds due to your short stack size

      Hand nr.2: Push turn as mbml said.

      Hand nr.3: Also push turn, you need to protect your made hand against 4th :diamond: and possible OESD.

      ...this player is kind of fish you want to play against and after decent amount of hands he will be one of biggest injections to your bankroll. ;)

      Hello dangerousmind,

      Hand #1 : Standard, well played

      Hand #2 : Bet/Call is only recommended against aggressive opponents, otherwise just shove it on the Turn!
      Hand #3: I would raise it to 4bb+2bb = $0.6 preflop

      As played, Do not c-bet against multiple opponents without a made hand!

      Best regards,
      Gerv
