    gonna play 100 games from $1.50 buy in to $15

    if i win 1 game $1.50 gonna move up to $3.50 if i lose down to $1.50 and so on and so forth but till $15 game only

    will post some hands for review because only in this way you have the chance to improve your game and maybe you can help me analyze it

            $3.50 game HU

            http://weaktight.com/5047547

            pre my plan is to float then see if he will checks turn when he checks it. I will bet river to take down the pot and it worked

            http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...536_EBFB7F4199

            i will not call the riverbet if I didn't hit the 4

            $1.50 HU

            http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...700_983A69B734

            against aggro

            pre std raise opp 3bet i flat

            post he donks bet i reraise bec of the FD he called

            turn he donks bet again and I reraised again

            river bets again i have to shove my TP against aggro can't fold at this point bec put so much already ifhe have a better hand he have it but I'm right

            -- if an aggro player donks bet you need to reraised him immediately if there are draws on the board to let him pay for his draws, if he gets ther he get's there nothing we can do

              http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...687_F20F8C95E1 pre - std raise then cbet turn - aggro opp reraise me i call don't believe he have K to induce bluff on the river which he did http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...697_F361C8A48A against aggro opp check turn then bet river w low cards A high might be good http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...699_9BD685FECF this is where my problem is if aggro tends to be super aggro im always folding http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...702_AA46D6E91D played this so passively folding river after calling 2 streets i think is my leak, opp is super aggro, need to wait for a good hand pre http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...707_664FADFBAA lose some value here should have shove it on the river need to improve a lot $1.5 HU http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...769_5741BC80F0 opp showed me a bluff all in - and he's proud of that http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...771_D267D6BBE2 i bluff him off thru double barrel but never showed http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...772_F80A134E39 pre flop raising war then he called then decided to reshove all in on me post flop I insta call because of the way he showed me his bluff - lesson here don't show your bluff - i guess if he didn't show me his bluff i might fold because it is still early in the game lot of time to play post flop good game $3.50 HU
              Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
              last hand is interesting std raise pre then i called his small bet then he checks the turn and I don't know why then he shoves the river when I completed my draw when the blinds are high strategy will be keep betting and take down the pot, no need for slow playing blinds alone are good enough good $7 HU
              Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
              bad $15 game i keep on 3betting pre then cbet only to fold to opp's 3bet flop ahhhhh wrong play bad bad play by me - im such a donk on $15 game http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...968_08F6989DD0 playing passively should have fold early http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...975_B25FF69935

                Sept 27 HU review $3.50 HU Tournament #620166870
                Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
                play good in the first stages then bad in the late stages then finally win it my opp is actually weird during the first stages calling 3 barrels with weak pair then suddenly change gear which caught me off guard but good game for me he called me 2 barrels for gutshot plus weak pr then called my full value riverbet http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...883_F902202D0A he called 3 barrels with mid pr http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...886_6376537791 this is the weirdest line of my opp http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...893_D191F777D8 can't believe he still saves his last 250 but he actually made a comeback - i thought i can make him fold http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...897_3B44C5641C late stages i fold my 3's all in pre - because i know i have an edge with him that I dont want to flip it with him which is a good decision in the end - but if this is a good player i will gamble http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...901_C94668009F he really want to call 3 barrels w worse hands http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...906_CA81A05E7F played perfect $7 HU Tournament #620173949
                Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
                my opp is super tight and I owned him good i won 12 hands out of 15 hands cool love tight players my problem is if I'm facing with super aggro players played perfect $15 HU Tournament #620175900
                Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
                tight opp are very easy to play with did not lose a pot bigger than 320 chips $15 Tournament #620181491 played bad early stages but make a nice comeback
                Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
                i just don't know my opp's betting pattern he wants to bet 1bb bet on the flop - if i reraise I might get 3bet all in which i can't call because i have nothing i double barrel to represent an A and check river and fold on the shove of course http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...060_CCFA8F36E0 just flats his minbet to get my outs and hit it on the turn good reraise on the turn http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...065_1D29445575 double barreled but can't call the riverbet http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...068_CB2A4DD2E4 played my AK against my opp - double flat his donk bet then reraise on the river for value and he called with weak pr - if i reraise him on the flop or turn he will def not call a reraise on the river http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...072_A846A4B0AF bec my opp loves to minbet i decided to double flat and riverbet bluff on the river but unlucky he have a monster http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...078_CDB312BC64 need to call his triple barrel min bet w A high http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...082_8C9D29DC78 $15 Tournament #620187279
                Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
                my opp is a lil bit aggro but not super aggro that's why is so hard to beat him got a cooler higher 2 pr > 2 pr i keep pressuring him i don't know if i made the right call http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...133_EC8EF947D3 this is why my opp is good - he called me with no diamond - damn http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...137_A4D10B5BC6 here i fold Ax again pre because he kept shoving to my min raise so i just need a monster and he's dead http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...142_D551426A3B i min raise he shove i fold very frustrating but i have the lead so i kept my patience and then BOOM http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...147_0870B68BDC when opp is always shoving be patient

                    played this hand good against my opp - called his std raise called his cbet w my OE then just calling his turn bet because if I shove and he called and I didn't hit I will be crippled while if I call and hit I will win a good pot and If I didn't hit I still have a manageable chips to play with http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...619_BF26FFD6F3 THIS WILL BE MY BEST GAME EVER $7 HU against tight opp - won all 16 hands - superb

                    key hand - just flatting the turn and see the river card if it will complete your draw I think is the best way because you still have enough chips to play if you miss and still early in the game http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...724_04059E331E Rematch against the same opp he's so crazy tight so easy win for me

                    key hand i double barrel my 9's and FD then check on the river but my opp decided to bet river which I can't call knowing that he is tight he will not bet worse than 9 http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...793_AFB927666C key hand - i call his std bet then bet my TP he decided to reshove and put me all in - I saw the heavy drawy board if he have a monster he will just flat call rather than reshove so I decided to call and luckily my 8's hold to give me the chip lead http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...803_E8F62531B0 $15 HU game - played good i really want tight opp

                      ok, so far so good

                      I think I can beat $15 HU games but of course I don't want to get too excited because I don't want to dent my BR playing $15 games so much

                      will continue what I'm doing

                      analyze every game except when tight opp wants a rematch if I know I can beat him I will go for a rematch but if aggro opp wants rematch I'll decline even if I win

                      Hoping for a good RUN and hopefully I can beat $15 games easily

                          $3.50 HU

                          http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...204_0E869C7C5C

                          A high is good against aggro riverbet when checks post and checks turn

                          http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...215_D71FF18467

                          against an aggro opp when I 3bet and got called don't make a riverbet bluff cause he might have something that he can't fold

                          http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...228_0964825C3B

                          when the blinds are high and you are short 3bet post is more believable against opp who will bet most of the time

                          $10.50 super KO

                          http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...525_221464B660

                          i think the best play here against aggro is to call the 4bet turn and check the flop to induce a bluff on the river and let him hit something to bluff on

                          round 2

                          http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...674_EA559AF06C

                          this flop is an auto call against an aggro just unlucky

                          *transfer only
