Hands from icemonkey's disaster day
Well if you read his blog
you'll see he has had a pretty terrible August so far and says he's quitting, which I doubt But really, it looks like he's having a hard time, so I thought we could help him out here. With all due respect to you IM, you're probably running bad, but the way you play your hands definitely isn't optimal. I think you have a lot to work on, but you can always turn things completely around. Quitting is for quitters!
$27 effective stacks
Hero raises JhJs utg to $1
folds to button who calls
Flop comes 7h7c2h
Hero cbets $1.25
Villain raises to $2.5
Turn is 7h7c2h4h
Hero leads for $4.75
Why lead here? If your opponent is on something like 88, he may not call, but he may bet again. If he was bluffing
, you want him to keep bluffing. If he was on a flush draw, he got there. If he flopped trips or better, you're giving him money. Check-call the turn for a reasonable amount and reevaluate the river.
You 3bet to 2.75 which is way too small and I've noticed it's a recurring theme for you. Try getting the betpot script (http://overcards.com/wiki/moin.cgi/BetPot) (or mess with FTP's pot button) to see what a pot raise is. That'll give you an idea of what you should be reraising to. In this instance you should bump to like $3.5 or so.
I just shove the turn, but whatever. You're always stacking there.
Another recurring thing is your cbets are too small. 3/4 pot is pretty standard.
Turn was a little small too, but not terrible. You played the river fine, looks like a good fold to me.
Bump it up a little more with the limper. I like the 4bb+1bb per limper rule.
cooler and I think you played it fine
Again, you 3bet a tiny size. I don't have any reads on this guy, but I think stacking JJ in a bsb situation is just fine. Just a cooler.
Raise more pf being out of position and with the limper in the pot. 1.25-1.75 or so. Flop turn and river BET MORE!
As wv mentions in the comments, look at my 50k hand break-even stretch. It sounds like it's time for a break for you (tilt never helps), but when you come back and are playing for a few months, you'll realize how small of a problem breaking even for 9k hands is.
I'm busy for the next week or so, but I'm definitely down to help you out if you need it.
