      Must be because you were bluffing in the microstakes.

      On NL10 and under they will prob call with gutshot, any pair, etc so your bluffs will prob be called. Bluff less, and value bet more often.

      He had a Q?

      He's not folding a queen here like ever and he won't raise you on the flop with less then a queen. So just fold on the flop.

      If you have a read that he raises paired flops as a bluff you shouldn't call but reraise to 1$ and then give it up if he continues.

      Hi,

      This mostly. People are really good at talking themselves into calling, and really bad at folding. Don't start putting yourself into tough spots with almost no equity if you're wrong especially out of position, it's not worth it.

      Even if you play it like that on the flop, don't check turn bet small river, it's not gonna make him fold anything, you're just giving away more money.


      Hope it helps.
