Homerdash, I'm not trying to attack you. Sorry if you were offended, but I was trying to give you honest advice. Your post did seem to focus on "M" too much. What your M was... Did your opponent know your M was low...? Did he know that because your M was low that you'd be pushing any random hand?
All I was trying to say was that formulaic play is for people still trying to get a grasp on concepts. I have seen you play and you are much better than that. When good players make mistakes they shouldn't it bothers me.
If you want further critique than "come on man, that was a dumb push" then I'll give you some. I think you already know everything I'm about to say though. First, you still had enough chips to wait for a better spot. Second, you just recently pushed with a marginal hand that was seen at showdown. Any decent player is going to see that and give you less credit the next time you try it. The poor players will see that you don't mind gambling. Poor players like to gamble and your giving them more or a reason to mix it up with you. Third, you pushed with K,3. If you're going to push with rags then try to make sure you have two live cards. If someone has a decent hand to call you with, there is a good chance that they'd have a K as well. The only hand with a K in it that doesn't dominate you is K,2. If you're going to get a call from someone, a pocket pair is likely too. The only pocket pair that doesn't make you a big underdog is 2,2. Fourth, good players avoid being AI if they can help it. Even if they are a favorite going AI there is still the possibility of being outdrawn and being sent home. If you're going to put put yourself AI, either have the goods or at least give yourself a fighting chance. K,3 is too weak in my opinion. I understand that you were getting low on chips. You weren't in desperation mode yet though. That's a desperation push IMO and you shouldn't have made it. You were right in that you had to make a move soon, but you didn't have to make it then.
