re: Poker & Playing good but results are really bad
2:12 - Good god man never ever ever ever ever ever open fold a pair. Raise that s#%* up!
2:41 - I want you to notice what happens here. You raised preflop with A7s, flop comes Q44 vs 2 villains. You cbet and take it down. That's because this is a good board to cbet. However, earlier in the video you raise preflop, flop comes AAx and you check saying, "I'm gonna check, we got three people in the hand", but you are the third person.
It's the exact same scenario as this 2:41 spot except an even more terrifying board for villains. You raised preflop, they see AAx on the board then they run away when you bet. Instead, when the preflop raiser is afraid to bet an AAx board the button says okay thanks, bets and takes it down. If you'd bet instead, a large % of the time, that button folds instead of betting.
Only 3 minutes in, but I don't like the passiveness I'm seeing. AT on a KQ9 flop, you check/call the minbet. My mentality is, "I raised preflop, I'm repping this board. Villain will likely fold, if not I'm happy catching an Ace or a Jack, so I bet". Your line is, well I missed I check, he min bet so I call. Not liking that, maybe it'll improve though.
Holy....crap "I know he has a straight" Is that why he min bet for three streets after you checked to him three times? I'm not seeing why he has a straight at all.
4:31 - You raise AK preflop, get one call, flop AT8hh and Hero checks? This was as you start saying you play with these guys a lot so I thought you were going on to say he was going to bet and you'd checkraise or something, but I don't get it. Bet this out, then when villain bets Hero flats? Again, why? Why flat here? Watching the rest of this hand play out hurt me inside. I was actually talking to my screen, telling you bet, please no don't check! You even say out loud you'd expect him to have a couple hearts here, so why do you give him two free cards? Please....dont do that. Bet, bet, bet
Okay, I'm going to stop watching and making comments on individual plays here. I feel like I've seen enough.
You're playing the smallest stakes that exist. Your opponents are not good, they will likely call far too often. Even at higher stakes villains are more likely to call too often than fold too often, it's human nature.
On hands like this AK, at these stakes I'm potting this flop, and I'm trying to get stacks in fully expecting to see hands like AQ/AJ random flush draws.
Cbet more. I was going to say cbet more on dry boards, or boards with high cards, but you're not even cbetting those. If you took the lead preflop, don't give it up on the flop, bet it out and take it down. *Edit* It's like a train wreck, I can't look away. At ~6:00 there's actually a demo of the perfect board NOT to cbet, and you finally cbet something and get check-raised. These highly connected, wet boards especially with middle cards are what I'll finally bring it back in on. FYI my cbet % is around 80%, and even I would not cbet this board, lol.
Can you provide us with your PokerTracker stats?
The ones I care about most are:
VPIP, PFR, Agression Factor, Agg %, 3bet%, Cbet%, FvCbet%, Went to SD, Won$ at SD, W$ when saw flop, Steal %
If there's any other stats you'd want to add that's fine too
