Some hands

Today i made a try at NL25 with the new strategy. I'm up with almost 2BI despite of having lost one AA/KK. So the start was not that bad and still not tilting. (When i played my normal game it would have tilted me somehow for sure. But we will lose it every 5th times. That's what i try to implement into my head and get used to accept this. )

Regulars are the new fishes (one of my poker buddy told in the past), they just cannot fold and always suspect a bluff. Especially when i've got a crazy image. That's why the only way to go is to valeutown them. 

Some interesting hands from today:

1. Fish. If he raises at any point I'm down with the hand. Without 2p im checkfolding the river.

3. Stationy reg. River is not the best card as i could do this with AK. I was hesitating to overshoving or potting the river again, but got a lot of folds several times, so did a try to bet smaller. Good example that not much FE at the micros. It's quite hazardous to do this with total air. As they sometimes find a call. Unfortunately not this time

4. A bad bluff. Weak stationy reg. I tried to bluff him with his float. It's the price of creating an image. But i can make my bad image much cheaper, so it's not the way to go. My play was bad and there is no need for this.

5. The min3bets are wonderful IP. First of all it's quite fishy. When i got these min3bets in the past i just played fitnfold. I hated them as it was difficult to know it's air or the nuts from the fish. It was very difficult to play OOP against this. The advantage is that it makes the fishy image and it's cheap. We can keep villain's range the widest. We've got enough fold equity, too. When they have a monster they will 4b and we can fold without any hesitation. When they just call, their range is weak. Nobody will flat call with a monster here. 

Villain here is 17/15. His big donk just doesn't make any sense. With Ax he would have just checkcalled here to get some bluffs from me and reach showdown. So his donk was only for fold equity. On the river i made a mistake not making a thin valuebet, but i just chose the safer route and wanted to avoid some random Ax hands. But true fishes are a champion to make thin valuebets here.

6. This was crazy. But. PFR is a huge nit, 13/7. His calling range is stronger broadways and pocket pairs. Overcaller is an overly aggro TAG with really high 3b percentage. I would have expected him squeezing with any strong hand. I expect them playing fitnfold here. And the dead money is nice. I was potting to avoid any random calls with the broadways and represent a monster here. Hazardous i know
