      you are bronze and playing NL10, i think you should strictly follow the starting hands chart before you start being tricky with other hands.

      so:

      hand A: fold

      hand B: nice hand, you do not fold AA in this situation, protect it and even if you are behind you may still catch gutshot. i go broke here too, especially with this calling station

      hand C: raise bigger preflop. post flop you shove.

      hand D: you are definitely beat, nice fold. i would play it exactly like this too, villain seems to know what hes doing.

      hand E: yeah chances are you are behind. i personally would fold because of my dislike towards JJ.

      hand F: easy push. it could be that the villain slowplayed AA or hit his set with 22 but you dont care, most times you are ahead and they donk bet with A of clubs to scare you off.

      hand G: fold. no doubt.

      hand I: put it in the middle with a smile on your face. :)

      oh and consider my signature lol

      for hand H you should consider the odds and outs chart:
      now of course you know that the j is not enough.

      lets assume that villain has only top pair, which is the best case scenario.

      are you going to count implied odds? do you know that villain will call after a diamond hits the board? if that is the case, you paid 20c to earn $2.10 from flop to turn which is profitable and 30c to earn again $2.10 which is also profitable. but if he doesnt call then both your previous calls are -ev.

      so do you shove? let see, if you check shove then you are paying $2 for $2.10. plus there is the chance that villain folds so you have some fold equity.

      it depends what villain has to count odds and outs, he could have K9, set, A high flush draw or even a set, or bottom two pair or slowplayed AA.

      i think it is purely a situation where it all comes down to your read on the opponent and whether you like variance. because you are not even drawing to the nuts. just Q high flush.

      personally, it all depends on my read on the opponent and on my mood for the day, sometimes i will feel like taking a gamble some other times i will not.


      it will certainly be educational for both of us to see what a judge thinks, maybe I am completely wrong and have just wasted 8 minutes of my life talking absolut rubbish. which is the most likely scenario.

      Hello PSantosPoker,

      I haven't seen you on the forum yet, so welcome to the SSS forum!

      I agree with excelgeo, you should as beginner stick to the basic strategy...

      A

      KJs is not in the starting hands chart and thus should be folded.

      B

      Nice hand.

      C

      When you reraise preflop reraise to 3x initial raise thus 0.60$ or push all-in, but due the minraise I like the 3x reraise. Postflop is well played.

      D

      Nice hand, you have trash and therefore you have to give up the hand when opponent shows aggression.

      E

      Nice hand. JJ is not a 4-bet hand according to the SHC.

      F

      You have a made hand on the flop, so your only goal is to put all your money in the pot. Nice hand.

      G

      Easy fold according to basic strategy, also by advanced strategy without reads.

      H

      A pair and flush draw together are considered monsterdraw and should be played aggressively. I believe the most profitable line is to check/raise all-in. Even though that's a little overbet it's the safest way to play the hand for a beginner. You could also reraise to 0.70-0.80$.

      Try reading/rereading this article... Draws in freeplay situations

      I

      Nice hand.

      P.S.: We handevaluators are happier if players post only 1-2 hands per thread, because that way we can concentrate on each hand better and give better evaluations, but if you're looking just for a general overview of your play, then this is also fine.
