  • Too aggressive on the river?

    Hi there, Seeking some guidance on this issue as it is creeping into my game. I usually play 3.5 SNG so that kind of limits the damage but this type of play would no doubt lead to trouble in cash games. (Apologies for not loading the video). My mindset during this type of play is i've committed 1000 of my 1500 stack, so I might as well throw in the rest and gamble, rather than folding and trying to play a short stack. I'll take all feedback, but was seeking advice on the following points; 1. Was my initial raise OK? 2. Was the c-bet/semi bluff on the flop justified and was the amount OK 3. Was the call on the turn a mistake as the odds were'nt right (approx 3-1). does implied odds apply in this spot? 4. Should I have just called the river bet given the obvious flush possibilities of my opponent to limit the damage I ultimately caused myself. Cheers Lyle

    in my personal opinion i would have bet bigger on the flop or being so early in the tournament i may have checked and laid down when i saw the turn, but to be honest i would have folded pre flop, but im no expert lol
