    No information on villains?

    Hey Mcash.

    This board is going to connect with villain's range more often than a K82r board. Otoh, we can get some thin value vs Q9/QJ/J9/97 type hands in which we're a slight favorite on this flop (prob ~60/40) but following up on any non-ace turns is prob burning money, esp considering we have no reads. As far as bluffs, we get some small pocket pairs and maybe 78/89 to fold on this board. If this is a question spot for you, I'd recommend spending some time with a program like Flopzilla to evaluate these common situations.

    Also, let me offer a few suggestions when posting hands so you can get the most out of it. Along with HH, go ahead provide any stats you have on villain along with any reads. If you have PT4 or HEM2, you can use Gyazo to screenshot the entire table with HUDs to save time. In addition to that, you should really try asking at least one specific question about the hand, if not more. Then, tell us what YOU think the answer(s) is/are. It doesn't matter how right or wrong you are. Doing this will spark more relevant discussion, and more importantly, get you to start thinking deeply about your own game.

    Hope this helps

    I'd be betting this flop, and when called I'd be giving up.

    This is learning aka science.
    You accelerate your rate of understanding when you formulate hypotheses.

    ***
    Here's an important observation about learning.

    Being right and being wrong feel the same. You are probably right about a bunch of stuff you think and wrong about a bunch of stuff you think. Broadly, we all know this about ourselves. Specifically, though... what are you wrong about? Hard to say, right. After all, if you knew you were wrong about something, you'd change your mind and be right about it, wouldn't you? It's just that being wrong and being right feel the same.

    In order to shed ourselves of wrong thoughts, we must studiously explore what we think we understand. It is only in the moments that we change from wrong to right that we feel "bad" about being wrong.

    How does that make sense, brain? You lazy POS!

    Anyway: The point is that you have to be willing to feel wrong, all the damn time, if you want to have any hope of being right.

    ***
    So commit to putting reads on your opponents. You'll suck at it at first, but probably way less than they would at putting reads on you, and that's ultimately all that matters.

    You don't have to be good at poker to win. You just have to be better than your opponents.

    Cbetting seems marginal against a typical sb range, but should just about yield enough folds as long as villain is flatting all pocket pairs in the sb.

    The way a villain plays the sb is crucial to understand. A lot just 3bet everything playable now and we can adjust accordingly.

    I think the cbet could pass, better check Back, 9/A turn will just get You in trouble, You should fold to any reasonable bet villain makes turn/river. Also your pre sizing is big, just like the flop bet. You will accomplish the same with a 5c pre, plus your cbet will Be smaller and also his calling range pre will Be wider vs a 5c opening then a 7c,giving You more fold equity on flop. Why 12c and not 10c on flop? Villain reacts the same, but You save 2c ,thats a blind you save when you bluff and a blind you gain when bet for value at your stake. Adjust your betting sizing, they are too weak to see the difference. If he has QJ, he will call even a psb, when You hold a hand Worth that bet, while his 45s or A2o will fold to a 6c bet when You bluff w/ 23o.
