Whenever we sit down and play, its always important to observe the strategy of our opponents to see, if we can learn something from them. And in todays session on 888 Poker I really think, I learned something. It started in a 3,3$ satellite to the 22$ "6-max mayhem", where my opponent expertly demostrated how to trap other players by slowplaying a big hand on the flop:

Around half an hour later in the same satellite these two hands happened back to back against the same opponent. After the second hand my opponent informed me, that moving all in preflop requires no skills, and this was why, I was still playing the micros. I first thought, he was wrong and kindly suggested, that he might have folded. This send him on a rampage in the chat, until he eventually busted. For me on the other hand it was easy sailing into a ticket after having sucked out on his QJ offsuit in this brutal way. So I kind of thought, I had made a good play, and that he was wrong:

However a while later this hand happened near the bubble in a 3,3$ R+A turbo. 22 players left, 18 places paying. My opponent could have moved all-in for his 9 bigs, picked up a round of blinds and antes and tried to make it into the money. But instead he expertly set the limp trap, and I walked right in to it:

A while later another opponent in a 3,3$ PKO demonstated the brilliance of not 3-betting premium hands preflop but instead use your expert skills to outplay your opponents postflop, especially when you are out of position:

So to sum it up the key lessons, I learned today, are:

1) Forget all, that Collin and Katie have told us about "power poker" and moving all-in preflop. Its all wrong and the reason, why we are stuck in the micros.

2) When you flop a great hand, you should always go for the slowplay to allow your opponents a chance to catch up.
