I'm supposed to check my entire range on every monotone flop because they have a flush 100% of the time? Why give free cards to hands with decent equity?
this is the problem with most of your posts:
you're not thinking of your range.
you're not thinking of V's range.
you're not thinking ahead.
flop... what hands are we getting value from?
we've got all the Aces in our hand.
so V can only be calling with 76s, 77 and 66 that we beat. 9 combos
now how many combos of
can V have?
that's right - a whole lot more than 9 combos.
so by betting we're valu-owning ourselves.
Let's look at WHY we should check.
if we bet flop and V raises, are we folding?
if we bet turn and he shoves, are we folding?
now we have to...
who's the "bad lag" now?
If we're ahead - all we get are folds.
IF we're behind, our hand has equity.
we want to realize that equity.
putting in aggressive dead money from oop is spew
since we've got the board crushed, betting makes no sense.
fire up Flopzilla - put in V's calling range and see how many hands have zero equity on this board.... it's the majority of his range.
now see how we do agains the portion of his range that has equity... we're a dog.
this is the definition of way ahead/way behind.
do yourself a favor - instead of posting every hand that you've lost and arguing how you block this and V could be bluffing that... put some actual work into analyzing each hand. Use Flopzilla, snowie, falcoln or whatever. But seriously, do some off the table examination as to whether or not you took the best line. If after that you find that you've taken the most optimal line - POST that hand and ask the forum if your conclusions are valid and if not, where they went wrong.
Try not to think of your decisions as right or wrong, but more as optimal and suboptimal. There are tons of reasons for making a play one way or another can be justified. Based on all the variables present in a game - your play may have been the best play available when in a vaccum it's entirely wrong. Those are deviations in our game... stop thinking that every hand should be a deviation. These should be rare.
I told you I wasn't going to reply to your posts - not because I have all the answers and know everything (I don't) - but because you're so busy defending your actions, you're not bothering to stop and figure out why they're unprofitable. If you're sincerely here to learn - then LEARN! Stop making the same assumptions and the same mistakes hand after hand. Take the time to analyze your hand before you post... meaning don't slap them up here from your phone the minute you lost the hand.
Take all emotions out of the game and hand histories. Think of this as a science experiment... one that you want to be able to repeat with success. Just because it worked once doesn't mean it will work again. Those offering advice here are trying to help you find a way that you can play that will reap consistent rewards.
I said I'd stop replying because I'm actually taking the time to compose my thoughts and post them in an effort to help you improve. And while they may or may not be ideal solutions for your game - they seem to be falling on deaf ears. So why reply? I get an argument with every post... it becomes -EV for me to help you. You're one of the few guys who's still posting hand histories today that are similar to the ones you posted 2 years ago. Where's the growth? Where's the absorption of all the good advice given?
I hope this helps you understand where I'm coming from and why I've written what I did. My journey was a rocky road too - and I had to take a lot of pounding before I better understood how clinging to my beliefs was detrimental to my poker growth.
Best of luck on your poker journey.
