Hands Id like to discuss to improve play.
This first one isn’t the most exciting hand especially when you see the cards lol
I have J 6
I read pokers 1% and decided to try it out, of course I failed because I was raising too much and J6o is definitely not a hand you want to play. Surprisingly my opponent called 2.7 raise with K6o maybe this was because I was raising too much.
The problems I see:
-Position its a long way to go around the table (I gotta expect to get called by someone)
-My pre-flop bet should have been more (with his stack size it doesn’t cost that much more to call)
-He continuation bets small and I re-raise too large, (theres not enough left in the tank for a river bet), I believe if I raised less (say 600), I would have a smaller turn bet (600), and would have 1,226 for a river bet (I still think its small but I also think it may have gotten a fold by shoving on the turn he still has outs (a small flush draw and a straight draw) and the cash to call.
-I should have folded pre-flop (use better hands and a better position for this 1% stuff).
-In the future use smaller bet sizings that my stack can sustain (because of these large bets when I lose its huge instead of grinding up).
My goal for betting is to have:
Flop: (bluff) 2:1 (value),
Turn: (bluff) 1:1 (value),
River (bluff) 1:2 (value)
but I need to alter this a little because MTT’s have shorter stack sizes.
I also have a problem doing this because the above numbers go out the window and I can’t stick to the ratios.
