                  Hi, What where your reads on the villain? Sitting on this stack depth and position, it's worthy of seeing a flop at a relatively affordable price. I agree the villain might have had a range of flush combos in their range, so our course of action should be to get value from that range! Well played, I like your bet sizing post flop!umbup: What where your reads on the villain? Holding a suited broad way hand in this position on deep stack depth is a great situation. I like how you raised 5x to try and isolate the early position limper, by doing this it's ensuring that we could possibly get the pot heads up and improve our equity vs. a "limping range" usually perceived as a weak range. The flop comes rainbow and we have top two pair, we can either check to induce a worse range to bet and then proceed by just flat calling their bet or take an aggressive line by check raising. On the turn, our bet sizing is just a tad to big, there is no need to be afraid of the flush draw/straight draw as those range of combos have such a small amount of equity in the pot! I would have made the sizing 2/3 to 3/4 pot size to get value from a weaker range of holdings such as those draws mentioned above and possibly from Tx or Ax. The river doesn't bring a card that really pushes us off of our hand..the stack to pot ratio is perfect to get stacks in! Very nice and pot! Well played! Please only post full ring (9-max) ring game hand replays and not tournament hands, as your training is focused primarily on ring games (full ring). Thank you for your patience! Kind Regards, CannonLee

                        Hi, What where your reads on this villain? Sitting in the big blind with a very strong holding With two limpers I'd make my pre-flop raise size 10c to 12c (3x the big blind + 1bb for each limper) this is for pure value, as our hand will play very well versus a limping range. On the flop, I'd elect to bet 2/3 or 3/4pot and try to get value from a wide range of flush draw combos or the occasional Ax float. Keep in mind, a limping range is usually a weak range. The turn is a tricky spot when the villain raises our turn continuation bet, effectively the villain has set up the stack to pot ratio for what would appear to be a river jam if we flat call the turn..this really put's us in a tricky spot as we nearly have identical stack depths..the villain could possibly have limped a pocket pair and have a set (3 of a kind) or the completed two pairs.. On the river, readless, I'd maybe cry call this spot..based on their bet sizing..it looks like they do not want a showdown, the villain could easily have a range of 8x (A8 K8 Q8 J8 T8 suited and non suited) or busted flush + straight draws It's very important to take notes on the villains at the table and observe the table dynamic, as this will help determine our course of action versus certain villains and make the hand analysis more informative. Hope this helps. Please take the Cash Game Quiz >>click here<< and let me know you've passed it and your 2nd Bank Roll Builder buy-in will be awarded to you! Kind regards, CannonLee
