Cliffs notes: Ran like ass, then ran like god.
General observations:People 3-bet way too much with hands that you donâ€™t really want to be 3-betting as much. Iâ€™m still fooling around with the game but I see a ton of people 3-betting hands like A73Q suited to the Ace when itâ€™s much better to play pot control with that hand unless your opponent is ridiculously straightforward postflop. I donâ€™t mind the 3-bets as much when you have good suited+some rundown potential like A976, A986 type hands, which arenâ€™t great but I think are decent hands to mix into 3-betting occasionally, along with double pairs and monsters. Just a general observation for now though as I still donâ€™t have a ton of hands under my belt.
Ugly hand of the day goes to an opponent who was nicely trying to chat me up to pretend that he wasnâ€™t a short-buying hit and run artist (he came back and accidentally sat with me a second time after winning a few pots and getting a deep stack). I donâ€™t have any issues with deciding that you donâ€™t feel comfortable playing deep (though LOL at calling 120BB deep), but Iâ€™d prefer if you were upfront rather than pretending you had to go, then coming back, then immediately leaving again. No worries, didnâ€™t tilt me at all, but it would have been nice to keep playing him because he was HORRIBLE postflop (not that great preflop either).
