ugh I need to go to bed, damn you now I have to stay up to watch.

1st hand love this already "lets pretend like we played it to see what would happen"

ok TT hand I dont mind the fold at all, in this spot you are either folding or raising you can not just call because the 2 limper's behind you and if they shove you are in horrid spot. Regardless of if you would of won hand or not that seriously does not matter.

Is that pokertracker that allows you to see players cards after they have mucked?

No. That's PokerAce HUD. It's the program that gives the overlay stats from PT and reads the hand history after the hand to show the mucked cards.

ok I like you so this is kinda hard to do but I really dont like how you played in this sitting. I consider this weak/tight or tight passive then TAG.

you checked a lot of flops when you missed and didn't continuation bet on dry boards. If you raise AQ preflop and the board is something like 883 or whatever it was then you should continuation bet that, the board is really really dry no reason not to C-bet it.

I found that you became very readable about 15 minutes into your sitting, at end of video you became more aggressive. The call with Q9 on the flop was pretty bad also unless you planned on floating him and if you were floating you should of bet the turn when he checks it to you. That is the perfect time to put in a bet because it looks like you were just cold calling a pair there. If I was that dude I would of raised your bet on the river with any 2.

luckily you sat with some horrible players but if you play that way with anyone that is half decent to good they are going to run you over. Again I like you so this is hard to write but thought I wouldn't be a good poster if I didn't.

I appreciate the feedback, Stormy.

Well, I didn't like being between a "$ bag" and the aggro guy behind me. It seems my C-bets have been getting picked off a lot lately. I guess that's pretty weak-tight thinking. I'm not sure how to get my head around the fact that I should C-bet even though the guy behind me is aggro.

Yes. I have that problem.

I believe that is because I had better reads on my opponents.

I agree that I should have bet the turn. The flop call was my attempt at a LAG move, but I know I should have raised there. But you have to admit that I read that guy perfectly.

Hey, the truth helps in this situation. Thank you.

oh yea,

one more thing I noticed, you are really good at telling us your position but you didnt notice stack sizes. You missed the flop with some hand and you c-bet into a $6 stack, this is bad. He has no fold equity right here and he will be shoving with a WIDE range of hands, this is the one time you can check the flop and not C-bet.

yes you did but by floating flop and checking turn you give him a chance to catch up on river and pick off your bluff.
