    We're not in disagreement. What's important is to improve the areas of your game that need it whether they happen to be hard or not for the person in question. I'm not suggesting not to work on tough...

    he open-raised rather than limping, which narrowed his range somewhat. Still, AK is strong vs that range. If he's likely to call a bigger 3bet, then I'd bet more.

    I'd also consider leading this...

    As you've demonstrated, if you take an optimistic perspective, you can create a scenario / range in which your river bluff doesn't look so bad doesn't cost you or even wins a pot you'd have lost by...

    You seem to post a fair number of hand where you play modest holdings OOP. This is more difficult at NL5. You may not get punished a lot more, but you also get into tricky situations against IP...

    When he raises the flop after limping pre-, a nit like this is likely to have a set. And at this level, nits with sets tend to be reluctant to fold. Calling his flop raise isn't the worst play ever,...

    While you can come up with reasons not to build the pot on the turn, doing so requires moving in the direction of over-thinking. You didn't play the hand the way you did to not build the pot when you...

    1. fold initially, and as played, also fold. I'm not enough of an action junkie to open this modest hand first to act, even 6 handed. Having opened and facing a 3bet, I'm also not keen enough to put...

    Assuming poker is a hobby i.e. something you do for fun, then why play when you're either not enjoying it at all or not enjoying it enough to make it worthwhile? Unless your win rate is substantial,...

    Aside from situations like cbetting vs opponents who fold too much, you can be a solid winner at 5nl without looking for reasons to bluff. Indeed, you may be better served by looking for reasons not...

    Even considering that the villain can make some erratic plays, there doesn't seem to be a lot in the range where he'd take this line and you're ahead. So while you may be folding the better hand, the...

    This wording isn't accurate, possibly because it's not exactly what you meant to say. Of course, some outs can be unavailable because players folded them or opponents are holding them. But inferences...

    Another one that focuses more on the emotional / mental side of the game is called The Poker Mindset. Don't remember the authors offhand, but there are two of them.

    What made you think your original bet would narrow the field? Obviously, it didn't do a good job. That's fine when you have holdings you're betting for value. But when you're betting wholly or in...

    I'm not checking the flop. BTN's range for calling pre has numerous combos that are behind and he might even fold some weak A holdings since I could certainly have opened with a better A. And BB...

    How confident are you that he's shoving any two? If he is, you should call since you're well ahead of his range. Otoh, if you feel he's "only" shoving 50%, that shifts the odds quite a bit since it...

    I'm not familiar with the payout table in this particular tournament, but it's have to be quite flat to pay more than 500 out of 2800. About 10% of the field is common, and 15% would be flatter. In...

    Fold pre. 2 cents more in the pot from someone posting (who probably has position on you) isn't nearly enough reason to get frisky with a pretty modest hand from EP.

    It seems pretty unlikely that you can find a fold considering the small number of hands he can hold that beat you.
