      Hand 1:

      Should I just have folded on the flop instead of raising? Or should I at least have made the raise a different size?

      Im not too sure I made the right play, but Im leaning towards the decision I made but his oversized bet DOES seem somewhat suspicious to me.

      1) I'd raise more on flop and definitely raise turn to make sure all the money went in before a fourth club comes. As played it was fine as you got all the money in the middle. If you flop an underset it is just bad-luck. If you never fold a set on the flop you won't often be going wrong. If two players have gone AI before you then even if they both flopped flushes you still have enough Equity to call with your set.

      2)Going solely on the PF action and assuming villain was not a complete nutter your fold looks good here.

      How much more would you have raised on the flop? Around potsize so $1.74? And yeah I realised that a bit after that I probably shouldve raised on the turn.

      Thx for the feedback, as always its greatly appreciated :)

      Hand 1: I would go broke on that flop. Raise at least potsize. I would raise to $2 and if someone goes all-in, just call. If one of your opponents flopped a flush its bad luck, but even in that case you have some outs for your FH. Turn: I would push allin after the BU-raise.

      Hand 2: I think you can put him on aces or kings here - so from my point of view its a nice laydown.

      Hand1: Yes I suppose I shouldve at least reraised allin on the turn but oh well, the gods smiled upon me and I got all the money in the middle anyway :) .

      Hand2: And yes that was what I put him on that too. I thought that his stats pointed towards something like that, albeit very few hands, and his preflop actions too ofc, mostly that.

      And thx for the feedback :)

      Well if you put him on aces and kings you should fold after he reraised you to 1.60$ since you dont get the proper odds for a set.

      After the preflopreraise I would put Villain on AA, KK and AK but after his allin on the flop I would exclude AK from his range. Thats why I think the preflop call is ok:


      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 60.143% 59.92% 00.22% 172384116 626394.00 { KK+, AKs, AKo }
      Hand 1: 39.857% 39.64% 00.22% 114030168 626394.00 { QQ }

      We are only an 40-60 underdog. From my point of view that means that we can call $1 in this case

      Well, I didnt put him on it until his allin on the flop so.. But yes you do have a point ofc undercover82, but I tend to do some pretty stupid mistakes sometimes because of inexperience and shit so.. Well yeah basically I suppose I rushed it without thinking it through enough.
