  • Dead to rights.

    This guy calls me all in with 7-2 and i beat him, he trys to bluff me on a previous hand and i call with a pair of deuces..

    Ive had the dead read on him, every time and then again but he calls and calls anyway..

    gah.. Ive only ever won 4 MTT since i started playing poker and im registering for 20 micromillions events, but i'm starting to think what's the point.. what am i doing wrong how am i this unlucky? get them to put it in when i know im crushing them.

    I see one glaring problem with the way this hand played out preflop.
    Whenever I have to put more than 1/3 of my chips into the pot, I'm pot-committed and cannot fold, so the 3-bet sizing here looks very fishy as it's almost 1/2 the player's chips.
    When betting this much of your stack, just initially shove... because you cannot ever fold later in the hand.

    Standard bets is a big key while playing NLHE. By making the same bets over and over with any of the hands that I'm going to play, it helps to conceal the strength of my hand. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent... something that I need to avoid doing.
