re: Poker & Looking for 5NL Zoom coach
Hi, I don't see any response so I will go first. It's my firs post on this forum so please do not shout if I'm doing something wrong Your game seems to be correct abc poker. Still at those stakes I will recomend to work on your opening bet ranges and 3beting ranges. Try open from earlier positions bigger - like 4BB or even 4,5 BB (9c) (smaller from CO and Button). It will scare off some of the regs on your left with marginal hands who actually look on the opening sizes, and the fishy players do not care if it's 6c or 9c, they want to see the flop. And for you it's still 1,5 bb more in pot (watch out for shortstacked fish and don't put them in all-in situations by this opening ranges). And for 3 beting I would recomend doing pot sized bets or 4x. For the same reason as above - fishy players do not care about 10-20 c more, but you should.
And for the specific:
I don't think that slowplaying AK in 0:40 was a good idea. It was scary board, but still you would get more information what's oponent holding by doing a min re-raise on the flop. I've been in those situations many times and depending on oponent he would shove it all-in (fishes did that to me too many times with KQ or AT even A8 on this kind of board) or he will call and checked to river (or call any of your bets). Then with biger bet (80% pot or sth) you would have more fold equity on the river. I've noticed that on those stakes people raise pot sized bets when they holding something very strong. This guy was putting 50% every street - it's a weaknes easy to exploit.
Well two minutes in your video and you flopped monster after a monster
Your AJ hand I think you should bet like 80-90% or even pot-sized bet on flop, and then 70% on turn, then on river your oponent would be forced to go all in even if you bet like 40c for value. He was holding any Ax hand and on that board texture he would call you with any J and any A and flush draw). At the end you wolud be 10-30 bb ahead even if he would fold on the river.
KK opening in 4 minute - You've opened 3bb, you're missing value in those spots. Open like 4 or even 5-6bb your premium hands from early position. You want to go to showdown with fishes, not with regs in complicated flops out of position. How many times my AA, KK or QQ was outplayed on the flop only the red colours in my holdem manager tells
In 7:30 you had 77, on quite dry board with QQ8. I've learned that if you have smaller pair than any card on board and you're oop don't ever c-bet instead you could try re-raise villian c-bet (depending on the his c-bet size - if it's pot-sized - you should fold) and forcing him to fold (he could have Q but is more likely he was holding something like KJ, AJ, KJ, JT and any 99+ hand). Too bad you didn't have reads on him.
Your vpip from SB from this short session must be quite high. I think playing less hands and more premium ones (TT+, AQs, AK, KQs) from SB woud do much better job and will not force you to fold out your 3bet that often.
I don't think ATo is a good hand to 3bet from CO. Sometimes it would do the job but still you have button behind you and it could get complicated on the flop.
In 12:50 your 55 has been 3bet and you've called - low pairs you should definitely fold (rearly you would flop a set, but still beeing oop makes it very complicated to play). Middle and premium pairs on the other hand could give you good action when flop hits your oponent 3betting ranges.
Hope I helped even a little bit
