comment NL600: Should I Make This River Bluff vs Reg?
@CheckRaise In 6max NL600 where this was, 27/22 is more the norm. Also I agree, it's not true tight-TAG. That's why I called him a "semi-tight...TAG". It's subjective of course but that's the terminology I use to differentiate the in-betweeners.

comment Call river all-in after missing flush-draw but hitting AK?
@CheckRaise "Why do you think AQx is discounted?" Because of the Pre-Flop action. Also, he's closing the action after OP has raised and everyone involved still calls, so I'd still count all the A3x's due to the IO he's now getting.

Sounds normal to me for a live 1-2 game :) The strategy you mention is definitely one you can derive from what I've said. And it sounds fine to me for that type of game. If it's over 175bb deep and as passive as you say I'd consider a ~5-7xbb open bet as a good start, although thats probably what you're doing already.

You're misinterpreting what i'm saying, but I'll go over it again to clear it up.

It wasn't a snap call. It wasn't a lengthy decision either.

@Johndibling so you agree that I do in fact up vote answers, and if youve read the meta post I've linked (perhaps you can help answer it), you'd understand why "accepting is a technical dilemma. Ty for your answer anyway, really.

Why would you think that 3-betting Pre-Flop is "definitely" better than flatting? Also, as for reads on villain, that's not necessarily true. His quality is part due to his balance of bluffs to value hands. He's good because he's difficult to read. The number of hands is somewhat arbitrary as he may exploit others obviously, but that doesn't necessarily apply to how he reacts to me.

"He's not worried about kicker problems with Ax anymore." Why not?

Specifically, what proportion of my hands do you think have a queen in them (compared with my whole range), that I would check-raise with? When would I do this and why? Thanks.

Yes, other than actually counting the hands you could do that. Also, consider determining your profitability in a game by Money Won Per Hour (or $Won/Hr). I find this a useful measure alongside bb win-rate to gauge my success.

Not to put you off but we're talking 100,000's to truly feel comfortable with the StDev volatility measure. It's not impossible to gain insight into your game using this stat, but it's genuinely difficult as the games change periodically. Thus one sample of hands and the corresponding StDev represent more of a snapshot in time, rather than a linear progression of an attribute of skill.
