      nh, I can c/f this board or delay/cbet with several hands as its quite hard to hit. Nice balancing (and bluff induce?)

      Hey guys thanks - it's really good to hear the words 'nh' when you're doing as horribly is I am.

      This hand is just typical (with villain sitting there with pocket deuces)...

      @ goldflair03: I wish. Crashed out of NL100 due to 30BI downswing. From $800 to $300 in 3 weeks and I'm sick to my stomach about it. All there in the blog if you'd like the gory details... :(

      Hey Tim64,

      against fish I don't find balancing important, so my main problem would be how to get $$$ out of the fish when you hit such a nice hand.

      On this very dry board it's hard for villain to have hit something and you don't really fear any turn card, so I think checking behind is ok against this villain with 2.8 AF in order to let villain catch a piece of board on the turn or maybe induce a bluff, but if he checks turn you need to start betting.

      Nice hand.

      Btw, you'll crush the NL50 donkeys in no time. :f_wink:

      Regards,
