      hi,

      I lost 4 times in 5 days with sat aginst sat

      I had a pair of 4 and the flop was 4 5 J

      I lost to sat of J

      it's one example, the a other were sat of 3 aginst sat of J a sat of 7 aginst sat of 10 and the last one was sat 5 aginst sat of J

      can you give me tips to analyse this hands in the future? how can I loose the smaller pot that I can?

      in all this 4 examples I bet first after the flop and go all in after a re-raise from the opponent, it was a mistake?

      The blinds are 0.01$/0.02$ and my stake was avarage 1.50$

      thanks a lot

      I like that you are not actually whining about it, but finding way to improve it.

      Set vs set is part of the game, where u really need lot of self control and good read on your opponent to be able to lay it down.

      As nl2 player, its remarkable that u are actually thinking about folding sets/going for pot control when facing aggresion.

      That being said, poeple will have you overseted as often as you will have them.
      With normal stacks, dont worry about it, but when deep 150bb+, its always better to be getting stacks in with top set. With bottom set, you should try to pot control if u have suspicion that ur opp has u beat. Ofc, as everything, dont over do it. If u r vs opp who gets crazy with TPTK, just ship it;)

      Dodging sets is hard.

      Maybe if you could post some of those hands we could give you better advice. But you said running Set vs. Set 4 times in 5 days.

      I Think i ran into them 20 times in 5 minutes. It's pretty standard, getting to dodge them needs experience and good reads. Take notes on those opponents to lose less money possible in the future.
