      I recommend posting 1 hand per thread and your own though process as well.
      This way we can review the hands a lot better than now. It’s also better to remove the outcome of the hand or put it in a spoiler.

      The first hand seems fine, but I would check to the aggressor on the turn and try to get the chips in the middle against 2 fishy players.

      2nd hand I would just check/call the turn. Now you need to fold with the outs you have on his big shove.

      3rd hand seems standard to me. Pretty much a cooler situation. I would consider to call the turn and shove the river if he would bet again. You don’t need to scare him away his weaker hands in his range.

      4th hand I would just check behind the river. I think a thin value bet isn’t to bad, but he needs to call weaker kings to make this move profitable and I doubt he would do that to often to make this move profitable on the river.

      5th hand I would raise max 3bb on the button. Not sure why you raising that big in position.
      As played I would fold pre-flop already. I doubt the BB would 3bet to many weaker hands based on his low 3bet%. Post-flop seems fine to me. You could try to semi bluff the flop, but calling for pot control is fine as well against most likely a regular.

      6the hand I would raise at least 4bb with 1 limper in the pot and post-flop betting against so many villains will be tough, because I doubt you get to often action of worse hands and I would try to keep the pot small and check it down.

      Cheers,

      1. nice hand. On NL2 i like the turn donk. If you check, it will happen way too often, that all opponents check also, and you loose value.

      2. preflop, i have no completion range in SB vs. BB. Raise pf. If you calculate your odds ott, you see that you cannot call. So just check and call after odds&outs.

      3. Your bets and raises are too small. And ott, i just would call to get his money otr.

      4. I would check the turn and bet or call the river. With your turn bet, you chase away the bluffs.

      5. On the button, against a resteal from SB, AQ is in my calling range. otf and ott, you are drawing to the nuts, you need 1:4 and get 1:3 ott, the implied odds justify a call.

      6. Standard isoraise size is 4bb+1bb per limper, so 5bb would be fine. With 3bb, the blinds get correct odds for calling. You hit TP bad kicker, so you have 2 streets value. Call down.

      Thanks for the review guys.

      # 1 should i worry about and eventual straight or straight draw? i just though the initial aggressor had hit the board

      hand #2 i totally miscalculated my outs. i face palmed when i realized it lol

      On hand #5
      - the extra blind was for the btn, that was playing 50% of his hands. i call it implied limping lol :D
      - ok, a semi bluff makes sense
      - Since, im on a downswing, my mind set at the moment was to stop chasing cards and didnt think about implied odds. My line of thought was that i was calling way too many raises to a villain that was showing strenght. But precisely because of that strong villain´s hand another spade wouldn't stop the villain from raising again or calling a raise.

      On hand #6 i think i missed the limping player due to multi-tabling
