  • 100K Freeroll Hand

    Hi All, So, I have been trying out this Tight aggressive play, in the past I wasn't playing like that, but wasn't getting far so decided to take PSO course. I have noticed though that when I am trying to figure out what other people had from what they are betting I am completely off the mark, i think they have something when they are actually chasing a big hand. Below is one of my last hands, can I get some advice on how I should have played??? I am getting tired of being run down!! I was short stacked.... I hadn't made many bets calls I was playing very tight!! Villain 1 (winner) was playing aggressively without many showdowns so I am unaware of what he was holding. Should I have raised pre-flop? Or gone all in after the flop?

        Hi Pkrsweety590! With AK from the SB, I get a limp in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise, which for this blind level is to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper, so I will raise to 875... HOWEVER.. this is well over 1/3 of my remaining stack, which means that I'm pot-committed. Due to this, I need to SHOVE preflop. I do not want to limp, as this gives both opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me. If they're going to try to get lucky, I want to be making a play where I expect to gain chips, not one where I expect to lose chips to the opps. One key to playing winning poker is to be aggressive at the tables. To do so, I want to be making standard bets and raises. Bets preflop need to be sized based on the size of the blind (or a previous raise). Bets post-flop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 2 opps, I will not bet less than 2/3 pot. If I bet too little, then the opps can get the correct odds to try to outdraw me and if I do so and lose, it's my own fault that I get drawn out on. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
