Im just going to post the whole hand here and Im wondering what you guys think of my plays. I flopped a nice draw and I was really just trying to take the pot down on the flop and turn. I figured the min raise from villain was pretty weak. This was the 1st hand I was dealt, so no reads on the player. I realized that I would have played this hand a lot differently about a month ago and wondering what you guys think.

Hmm, lets see, it would be ~5.00 more into a 15 dollar pot and I figure I can hit a 7, 5, 4, or any heart and Id be getting 3:1. Not sure exactly how many outs that is, but I looked it up in PT and it looks like it would be worth a call. I would have a 38% chance of winning. Dont think I could think that fast at the table though, something Ill have to work on

The turn only gave you added outs; you should be even more happy to get your money in.

wp, good aggression, and thank the donk for soft-playing his aces ;) He's probably on some forum using this hand as proof that online poker is rigged.

preflop yea its horrible play.


flop I dont mind the cold call on the flop with AA, you give someone a chance to overplay something like KQ. think about it you bet flop and someone comes over the top, ok what are they doing this with? flush draw, TP, or set. ok 2 of those hands you are ahead of, and by just calling you gain 2 things, you gain pot control and the ability to get away from it if a scarry turn card comes or give guy chance to overplay a hand and stack them.


the rest of hand yea total donk play.

I was thinking as I played the hand of how much differently I would have played it about a month ago, I would have been check calling with my draw and had I actually hit the draw I probably would have gotten no more chips out of it. I now know its much better to raise with a big draw like that to protect it and there is a chance you can force the other player to fold. Ever since I have been using PT and looking at hands Ive played afterwards I think my play has much improved. I just wish I hadnt tilted so much of my BR last week in the online casino. Pretty much set me back 1500 hands of .05/.10. Oh well, atleast I have moved on and made a 40 dollar profit in the last 4 days.

trust me I don't fault your play at all, would of played it basically the same way. Just trying to look at the hand from all different directions and pretty much dissect it. Also looking at it from opponents point of veiw and see how he could of played it better. I actully love looking at hand histories and that is why I love pokertracker.

Yeah by how he played AA he played it really bad because he should have pushed big on the flop or the turn and not wait till the river to shove when you might be beat.
