I want to say that I'm new to poker for about a year. I'm wondering if there are more experienced players who play like me. How they analyze their game and much more that I do not know but would like to learn from you. For this I will give examples here and I will hope for your help and I hope that somebody will also lead by example. :)

Your English is very good :top:

Well, I tried two different HUD's so far, but the first one I gave up because it affected too much the game speed, and some events I even could not play having it active - like KO mtt's for example.
The second one, I am still considering as still I have troubles with setting it in a right way.

So most of the time I play without a HUD, and could tell you what I think - if in future you intend to play Live games - you will need to use your own brain and memory instead of a softwear. Think about that! Of course HUD could be helpful a lot in various poker games online, but in the end it is up to us to find correct way of playing depending on particular situation. And in this regard, I put more efforts in exploiting the hands value and opponent's leaks, what I think is more important than the pure statistics :)

I know it's not relevant to the main post, but I recently saw a post online how foreigners learning English are able to say complete paragraphs and say they English isn't very good but Americans say they know French when all they can say is how to order a cup of coffee. Give yourself more credit haha!

Cash 6 max table
Cutoff (hero), open reiz 3BB :ac4::8s4: SB make srange reiz 5 BB Cutoff call
Flop :as4::3h4::9c4: SB all in hero fold...
I know that such situations are very often at all but I want to ask , it's good fold or what?

In most of the cases I think it is good fold :top:

Only if I have some observance of that particular player or I am deep in stack - I may consider calling his shove...

at this moment the stacks were flat and there was information just that he opened with the BTN K9s

...and do I have to pay attention to the size of his preflop reiz?

It is necessary if you play cash games and want to grow at the limits, and in micro mtt if there are several thousand people there is no need for it.

So beginning of the tourney, nice :D
But in this period of tourney, I think A8 is not recommended to force ...

...and do I have to pay attention to the size of his preflop reiz?

If in early stage, like it appeared to be - I would consider carefully a fold after preflop 3 bet :top:

Let me give you another example:
6 max table.
the hero on the BTN makes an open reis of 3BB with :kd4::ks4:, SB call, BB call
Flop :2d4::4c4::9d4: check, check, BTN bet 50%, SB and BB call. Turn :9c4:, SB check, BB check BTN bet 50%, SB makes call, BB reise x3 ... please tell me what to do? I will say that I reached showdown:)

I forgot to say in my experience BB played until this very Passive and his raise indicates that he has a strong hand.

He probably has a nine, I would fold.The probability to hit another K on the river is to small.

this i most certainly agree with although i myself have no interest playing poker using the help of a HUD & i feel if those who did play with the service of a HUD had a 'H' beside there name or a different color of avatar window,

What a freaky idiot, huh ...
I do not know if playing that hand in a style I would do - shall change the situation and outcome, but hitting an A on the flop will normally requiring me to bet 60-66% of the pot size, and continuing with the same size or even shoving on turn. But as I said, maybe the outcome will be the same with this player :p

I was sure that I was ahead, with the rate of 45% I wanted to provoke him for recreational activities, to provoke him to bluff but got fooled :D

Maybe just call on turn, instead of 3-bet, and hoping for Ace on the river for the final jam :p

Then I thought if he has a card, he will call, but I see that I made the wrong decision.
Yeah, You right...I had to make a call on the turn and hope for the river:(

Who else is more entertaining than Negreanu is :D

Well, shits happening always, especially in lower BI games - that is why the poker game is so interesting. For instance, sometimes I reply to such river rats with a similar donk play and won a lot of these :p
