      Im going to add this one as well.. awful call on the flop I know but I was tilted and knew this guy had missed the flop.. Was probably losing to AA,KK,QQ etc but the cards he turned over have just sent me over the age.. man I hate micro limits.

      Hand 1 nothing to do, your played well.
      Hand 2 with AK i would prefer a reraise pre and try to get it in, overcall from CO seems weak and with AK you do block AA/KK. So you will not be in worst shape more of the times.

      Hi,

      for the third hand I would have considered a c-bet OTF. You have got an uncapped range and he is very likely to have missed the flop so there is definitely some fold-equity. As he shouldn't have AA and KK in his range you most likely have got 6 outs to the best hand + a backdoor gutshot which sums up to decent equity even if he doesn't fold. As played I think calling the bets OTF and OTT was the right choice.

      For the second hand I also vote for a 4bet preflop trying to set him all-in.

      I'd definitely take notes for the guys in the first and in the third hand. I think they really shouldn't have these hands in their ranges at these spots.

      Thanks guys, I was really just posting these to vent my frustrations but yes I see how a 4bet would have been good in hand 2.

      Does anybody have some nice guides for 4betting? I feel that this is something that I do not do enough and when I do I have no idea why or how large to bet.

      ip size ~2.3x oop size ~2.5x. Do a basic range like this ----> AKs/AKo 100% oop 50% ip (you can add some AK to your call 3bet range ip) 50% AA but at this stakes you can go 100% AA you dont need to balace hard, KK, QQ and add some bluf hand with blockers like A5s or QKo etc. I prefer to add 1 or 2 combo sc oop when people start defending more ip vs 4b with a call. The reason is to my range able to hit a lot more board, but at this stakes you don't need this. Anyway make a standard 77% value 33% bluff 4bet range as standard and work with this (if you start getting info you can add more %bluff 4bet vs players who 3bet fold a lot, you can go less bluff vs tight 3betters and vs a guy who call a lot of 4bet you can start add "thin value 4bets" mostly oop like AQs JJ etc...

      If you use Equilab, you will find that you have in all these hands less than 100% Equity. That means: occassionally you WILL loose against a weak, bad played hand. You cannot avoid it. And those wins keep the fishes playing. Be glad instead of complaining. (Note to myself: remember this at the next bad beat!).

      QQ: nh

      AK vs. AQ: On NL2 i would push preflop QQ+, AK whenever possible. Otf you have to call.

      AK vs. 76: A Cbet otf would have solved your problems. Your calls are tilt.
