      2nd hand : I think that the flop play is fine, turn is ok but on the river i would c/f as theres not many hands you can beat, straight, flush, trips, high two pair etc so it's close and maybe calling a bet smaller than $0.50 on the river is fine.

      Third hand: The flop play is good trying to go hu but on the turn when the heart comes you have got to realise that most of the times the opponent will have a flush. So shoving is the wrong decision, calling is close but folding the is the correct decision.

      Hello!

      Can you please post 1 hand per thread as described in the Forum Rules here :) ?

      Hand #1:
      Whenever you see 3 limper sbefore you and you have a raisable hand, go all-in instead because everytime you raise to 4+3bb, you are committed postflop since the Pot is bigger than your stack:
      1.5bb(blinds)+(7bb raise)+(7bb call) = 25.5bb at least!
      if you have a 20bb stack, you have 13bb left when you raise it up

      Also with 9:c9, your hand is awesome preflop but most likely trash postflop :f_mad:

      Your shove is mandatory as played for max value+protection

      Hand #2

      nh just bet/bet/bet for value! I like :f_thumbsup: :f_pleased:


      Hand #3

      Despite the 3rd , I also like this play for max value + max protection. People can call your flopbet also with other kinds of hands.


      Best regards,
      Gerv
