    Default A few big hands for me tonight

    With help from forums like this, training videos, and going over a lot of hand histories - I've been starting to improve regularly. I've posted a few hands that I lost and wasn't really sure how to handle but I wanted to post a few hands in this thread where I got the villain for all he had:

    I'm starting to gain confidence through volume as it's only a matter of time before you get into some really good pots and have a chance to increase your bankroll. The thing that I'm happy about with these hands are a) I won a nice sized pot and b) I was almost positive I had the nuts but I still wanted to get everything out of my villains...and I did.

    Nothing major. Just some nanostakes wins that I wanted to show off. Hopefully I keep this up and can get out of .01/.02 soon. Want a $130+ bankroll before I move to 5NL.

    Now back to posting hands where things didn't go well so I can keep learning from them.

    Hand #1: played fine.
    Hand #2: you could argue for betting the flop a little bit more (pot) so that you're not overbetting the turn but that's just nitpicking.
    Hand #3: same as hand #2, you could argue for raising a little bit more to like .65

    h1 - 3bet more, I'd go 24c but keith will come along and say more still, and he's probably right. Postflop looks fine to me.

    h2 - looks good to me, now make a note and value bet big vs this guy in future.

    h3 - bet or c/r flop, there really is no need to slowplay this at 2nl because villain is calling Ac and is having a hard time folding top pair and better. At 2nl I probably c/r flop to something like 45c and shove turn. That way we get all his crappy Acx hands that don't call a river shove when he misses. I don't expect him to fold any nfd vs this sizing, not at 2nl.

    Yeah I debated how exactly to handle this but opted for the slow play. Looking back on it though I totally understand your logic. This info will help me get more value out of a future hand. Thanks.
