      1) I think that standart play here would be b/c, ch/c, ch/f. But on the turn he made such a strong bet, that i decided to fold.

      2) He is tight player, and i think that he is playing straight forward. On the river i can't call against AK,77 range.

      3)
      Preflop he is folding a lot to 3bet, so i decided to just call. On the river the question is would he bet smth like JJ here?

      4) Preflop one player is sitting out, pfr opens from MP. On the flop ch/r is prolly overplaying of the hand, because against AA,KQ,TT,JJ,AJ,AT,JTs i have only 36.7%, so i must fold to 3bet on the flop. Maybe ch/c, donk any turn would be better? But what should i do if my donk on 2 :spade: will get raised?

      I have to cbet in here. A lot of Pair+Draw combos out there that will call me. But if someone raises he most likely has a monster.
      Pretty standard I hope.

      I dont like to cbet this flop, because he can have so many draws that will go for a c/r and besides that he has very often the queen or the nine.

      This is actually a very bad spot to bluffcatch right?
      His line looks so much like 5x. A queen, FD, or a king will bet at least on the flop or the turn.
      And all the other PP will check again.

      Opp. till turn: Tight regular

      I think I could write pages about this hand but I will try to keep it short. Flop I bet cause I have a strong draw and some FE. Turn I bet again cause I think that there are stronger hands that fold the turn(weak 8, maybe weak overpair) and that there are weaker hands that call again(flushdraws). On the river I dont think I can bluffshove cause I dont have that many straights in my range and there are some busted draws in my range. So after checking I have to decide between c/c or c/f. I think that villain could have a straight sometimes, but I also think that there are some hands he could bluffshove(broughtway flushdraws), although I just dont really know cause hes unknown.

      Opp: 26/20/4.2/19 3bet: 4.2

      Actually I think that I had different 3bet stats of him while playing, cause I kind of had the impression that he was a very tight 3better(against this stats its a 4bet for me). On the flop I think u could check behind cause u have the best non-paired hand, but I prefer to bet and make him fold anything that has outs or could try to bluff me on later streets(I think hes c/f there very often, if he c/raises I will fold and against c/c I at least have some equity). On the turn its a pretty easy c/b cause I dont think he could have 66 or lower and I dont think hes c/f and 7/8 all the time. On the river im like 95% sure Im ahead unless he has sth like JT with a flopped flushdraw which he decided to slowplay. So would u make the standard call or raise and hope that hes herocalling sth.

      Hi there looking for some expert advice please, I'm having trouble going extra deep I
      get a comfortable stack in most tourneys and my ITM rate is okay but I never get deep.

      It was tough to put him on a two pair on that flop. I thought it was a pretty loose reraise
      but I regret not isolating against the SB shortstack who shoved what do you guys think?

      Also another hand in a cash game NL25.

      I flop top set and don't feel I got max profit out of it. Please let me know how I should play
      this and how much I should be when I bet when I call etc. please be specific.

      Dealing down cards
      Dealt to HERO [9d 9s]
      opponent posts the small blind of $0.10
      villain posts the big blind of $0.25
      aggressor raises to $0.75.
      guy folds.
      HERO calls $0.75.(On the button)
      someguy folds.
      otherguy folds.
      Dealing Flop [6s 9h 5c]
      aggresor bets $1.50. (Cbet it seemed obvious he missed the board)
      HERO raises to $6.35. (I think this is a good bluff amount so I hoped he would think I was or
      that he had an overpair but unfortunately I scared him off)
      Aggressor folds.
      HERO wins $4.61

      My question is what is the optimal play here?
      Do I slowplay and call his cbet then hope he cbets the turn where I can throw in a raise?
      How much should I reraise by on the flop and or on the turn?
