I think i remember you from league games, i'm pretty sure you just played really tight, my username was "Ieatsfish" on stars.
Just going in order from when i see them.
K7off- why call? we have position, but our hand plays really badly postflop, I can see a call here with something like 87s or a pocket pair maybe but even then it's just not a great spot.
The flop call is just a bit silly to be honest waste of 80 chips so far.
AKs- flop bet is a little big considering the stack sizes remaining, it won't be hard to get the chips in regardless so just make it smaller like 1/3-1/4 pot and hope someone decides to go crazy. It's a pretty minor thing, wp hand here.
88- Limping is pretty much the standard here, you get too many loose calls pre-flop to make raising a viable option though it wouldn't be horrendous.
Not sure what the idea of the min-bet is, as PO said it might have seemed like it worked, but really, getting the money in this exact spot was inevitable. What you really want to be doing is building the pot, since it is multiway it makes it more likely someone has somehitng they may want to continue with, so bet like 1/2 pot or more because you usually expect stations in low level games, they usually won't do the raising for you(unless games have changed since i was playing them).
As played since he did raise you with players to act behind i'm usually just trying to get the money in then and there, don't want another card coming off and usually players who do this will be willin to get it in. In other spots, you may want to think about smooth calling, if you think the player may just be playing back at you with air.
A3s- Fold, you have a hand that plays really quite poorly, you are Out of position and a hand that is dominated usually by a huge chunk of the raisers range. Adding to that, the raisers range pre-flop is usually pretty strong, i don't expect much isolation raising in these games, especially from that position.
Ask yourself this, are you planning to fold when you hit your ace to his c-bet/action? Are you planning to call one street and fold to a turn bet? Do you think if this player had something like QQ you would get much action when you flop an ace?
I think this wouldn't be a bad time to try your little donk bet, hoping to get raised or someone just spaz out. However checking is probably standard, it looks super strong to just check/raise the flop here(even dumb players know check/raising is strong these days i would assume) so i like leading here sometimes and checking sometimes, stats and reads kind of dictates, like weak players who c-bet a lot we really want to be checking too, but weird dumbasses who spaz for no reason we probably want to be donking out a small amount and hope he takes the bait.
River bet is ok, can go bigger if we think he's a station(likely).
T4off- Dude, stop calling, if your bored start up another game or watch some TV or something, lol.
K6s- slightly better than the T4 call but still super marginal, best to just fold and load another table if your bored. However if you feel like calling, that flop is about as good as it gets to just lead at postflop. Since most players at this level like to see flops but give up once missed, it provides a really good opportunity to limp in pots you normally shouldn't/wouldn't as you can bet people out of pots a huge % of the time postflop. So if your calling here pre, look for dry flops or flops that are unlikely to hit ranges.... Like A 8 5 the only way someones is continuing is if the original limper (whos been limping a ton) limps a weak Ax hand or hit some funky gutshot (we're still ahead of most gutshots btw), but his range is presumably a lot wider than just that.
JJ- 4x is ok, but i think 150 is better in this spot, we kind of want the UTG limper to call we have two stacks who have position on us that really can't call ( button has shown to be a little tighter from observations) and the SB we don't really care if he calls as he will be out of position and he calls too much anyway.
It's not really a big deal, 4x is ok but also the stacks behind you and who has open limped plays a big role in how much you want to raise. I just feel it's just too big for the stacks in play, 100 he might just call, but 150 seems like a big raise.
KT- eh, calling is ok i suppose, but we really need to be able to bet flops and take it down postflop a bit. If you want to learn how to multitable it's by making folds like this one saving you precious thought process and time.
Erm flop bet is huge, doesn't really make a lot of sense considering the stack sizes, makes it hard for them to call. 80-100 would be fine. i'd likely fire the turn again, but much smaller(after flop bet of 80-100 pot is 300ish, betting around 120 as a kind of a blocking bet while still hopefully getting vlaue from the weaker parts of his range.)
Another line is to check the flop(or fold and save the effort/hassle of having to deal with these spots postflop) and hopefully get to showdown much cheaper, but it's kind of hard to know what to do when the BB or button bets out, i guess check/calling is an ok line, but just seems a little weak considering we have a strong hand on a draw heavy board in a limped pot. I think overall betting is better.
Q9off- fold of course, we have chips so it doesn't matter as much, but still fold. If you feel the need to play, come in for a raise, this guy calls way to much and probably folds to much postflop so considering he has a decent stack we can easily just put in a small raise, hope he calls and bet the flop.
66- i'd probably just call here, but it really doesn't have a lot to do with the hand, moreso that i figure we can just bet flops and get away with people folding to much postflop, we're also kind of set-mining. Not overly sure about this hand though.
A8off- it's fine if you think the table is tight (which it is) just don't go crazy once you hit Top pair, you generally want to pot control in those spots. Again not really raising because we have a weak ace, we should be raising because we have two tight players on our left who have position (and probably won't call much) and two looser players in the blinds who may call and we really don't care that much.
TT- Are we raising 4x because of our position, or because we have pocket 10's? i really don't think theres any need to raise so large now the blinds have gotten bigger in any case, but if you feel like players will call in these games regardless of bet size and you want more value, then i guess it might have a little merit, but yeah, just 3x or smaller for everything usually.
66 again- meh, he calls a lot preflop, so when we raise only to 150 we're just building a pot for a person who has no brains but has position, we have to respect position. Just check and take a flop, we can check/raise him on flops if you think he bets flops a lot, or we can simply bet somewhere postflop and probably take the pot down a lot.... oh and also we have 66, so our hand showsdown a decent amount of time too.
Ask yourself this, what do you do if he calls the flop bet? what then? do we check the turn showing weakness? do we bet again? it's a hard decision then on the turn right? we kind of want to avoid really hard decisions like that, especially if we're just starting out in STT's.
K9s- if we're limping this it's hopefully designed as a "limp and go". betting any flop half pot. But this is just such an easy flop bet, he never has an ace, and your K high is probably still the best hand.
But yeah, since i've noticed this guy is tight, just raise it pre-flop, and use the limp and go as a bit of a mixup play if you have raised the guy a lot before or if you have history.
Yeah it's a bit silly betting the turn now, just check and get to showdown i guess, like you missed your shot pre-flop and the flop, now by the turn after giving this guy so many chances to hit, he finally does, so just get in earlier and bet/raise sooner in the hand, if this guy missed his pair on the turn he just folds, so your pretty much just wasting time and asking to be sucked out on by waiting for the turn.
89off- button limp makes no sense, two guys in blinds are tight, i'd be raising pretty much anything vs nits in the blinds or at least anything pretty. 89s is fine to go ahead and raise, but yeah limping sucks.
That's all i have time to do sorry, i'll try to watch the rest of the video next week and maybe even post a session of my own. I haven't played poker in about 6 months so i'm sure to be super rusty.
