Should I check-behind the floop? Easy call Turn. I dont know what I would do at the river- but... In this line he has only strong hands, I think.

I lost two hands before half of my stack with only 92% at the floop and I was little angry ^^

Thank you for posting

Avoiding results watching replayer
Stopped at flop action.

What was your plan when you bet that flop? If we have a stronger pre-plan at this point in the hand we will make better decisions in game. We practice out of game to achieve this.

We have to consider our stack size and the Villains stack size first. We have less than 30bb so we can easily get all in by betting turn and river so we do not need to bet 3 streets.
Which means we need a very good reason to bet this flop.
What did we want to fold? What were we getting value from? What are we behind?

Building that range is a very good study point for you and it makes all other decisions much easier in future game situations. This is how we learn to preplan.
Equilab is a great study tool for working on ranges if you do not have it get it it is free.

As played we want to refine the range that check raises an EP player betting this board? Hint look at strong combo draws are there any?

Watching the rest of the hand now.
However working on the above skill building exercises is where you will get the most value right now.


Shoving is fine in this spot if you know why you are shoving, do you?
As far as tilt off shoves go this one is not that bad. You had a medium hand and a big draw.
If you work hard on your preplanning it will also help with your tilt.

Hope this helps

I believe shoving at the flop was not a good play. The flat call on your preflop raise from the Villain here shows he has a hand he likes to play if the flop is right for them. When they raise your bet on the flop, you can are almost sure they have hit the flop and only call if the price is right. In this case you could have flatted and see if you would have gotten there on the turn and maybe even river. If not you can always laying down a hand.

Standard open.

Flop
C-betting here is not terrible, but I actually do think, your hand is a prefect candidate to check back for pot control. If he is not ahead already, its difficult for him to draw out on you, when you have spades covered, and the only potential overcard to your pair is a K, which will give you a gutshot. Checking back allow him to bluff the turn, and it also protects your stack the times, you dont improve and are behind to a better made hand.

As played I dont see much point in jamming over his raise. You are only ahead of another spade draw or an airball bluff, so the jam is not for value, and he is not going to raise-fold a made hand like top pair or two pair, when you only start the hand with 27BB. So I would just call here and kind of hope, he dont jam the turn. If he did, its probably still a call though, since you could be ahead of a bluff, and unless he specifically has two pair or a set, you have additional outs to two pair or trips.
