      Hi,

      please post one hand per thread.

      1.) nh. Not much you can do, except raise bigger on flop and maybe overpot shove turn, if you have the feeling he is on a draw and you don't mind variance.

      2.) call oop preflop, ch/c flop, ch/minr is nuts line especially form fish. So maybe fold turn is better, but I'd most probably would call ip like you did, too. nh.

      3.) Do you have a beting size read against you? Would you bet pot with bluff, too? If your answer is no, then you have to think about your betting sizes again. As played: nh, not much you can do. Even against AsX you just have a flip + his valuerange has you crushed => Fold and nh.

      4.) Same as hand 3.) but now you call oop? Either fold or push.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      1) fold is fine on the river. Don´t expect him to bluff that often
      2) I´d prefer either b/f or bet/shoving turn. Don´t like b/c and then folding river, but since he only min-raise then I guess b/c is fine and then folding that riover card
      3) I think you can also be very often ahead, so I´d prefer shove rather than b/f against middlestack
      4) depends if he is scared money or not. Some players shove there set/two pair and even lower flushes to not outdraw. Some shove A high flushdraws. I think fold is fine, since sometimes you´re drawing dead and if you don´t have any reads mostly they have it
