Does this happen to every new player...

      ...or is it just me?

      When I play, the hands I'm not involved in I put the other guys on hands. I'm pretty good. (I'm playing micros, so it's ABC pretty much.) Yet when it's my turn to play my reads are sometimes way off.

      Also, when I play and I raise pre-flop, I think that the donkbet by a villain following a Q x x flop followed means he's holding QQ and I fold a strong hand. (ie, I instantly think they're holding the strongest hand.)

      Is this something that all new players go through?

      Hi Helipacter,

      Well I don't think that this has something to do if you are a new player or not.

      Donkbetting for example can mean everything. From a bluff to the nuts. Try to watch the tables, also when you have folded preflop and write notes, when you see something special. You need to understand how villains think and plays. So later when you are involved in a hand with him, it is easier for you do read his hand.

      Good luck on the tables,
