That should have no effect on your actions after that hand, it literally doesnt mean a thing, and if its making you play all passive like not raising the flop here then its a massive leak, each hand is just that, an individual hand, and should be treated as such.
Agreed, I guess I was playing a little scared.
So my first question was whether I should have even been in this hand, I see that its ok but I should probably have raised.
I should definitely have raised the flop to charge the draw / get value from Ax.
Deco. Raise to 20c! OMG i think I need to go back to school. Generally my opening raises are between 8 and 16c I dont often raise AA/KK to 20c!
Whilst thinking this over Im guessing the reasoning for 20c is..... Picking up the blinds is a good result. Im not going to get called so often with 20c PFR. When I have a good hand and make it 20c, im going to get a call after people realise thats my default PFR? mmmmm.
Heres the rest of the hand, a rare occasion that I get a suckout. River comes in and Im no longer worried about the flush, a quick scan says Im not behind a bigger full house AA no, QQ no, AQ not likely and then I get all scared again, will he fold if I jam it in here? So I make it 80c I didnt really think it through too well, I just thought value bet, he shouldnt fold unless hes bluffing.
My question here is should I have just whacked the whole lot in?
