    according to you hand, I can see that you raise the turn 🙂 but for me is too hard to say why raise in better than calling. Could you explain you thought process?

    call, no way i’m ever folding here to a donk bet with KK.

    Shoving will take away all the bluffs from his range PLUS we got the K of spade so the backdoor spades will not hurt us in any way.

    if he checks on the turn I will probably check back or bet 1/4th to induce as his range will be extremely weak. if he shoves I snap it off.

    Nothing more to add. Well done sir.

    When we raise worse hand can call (draws) and we can make better hand fold (2ndP). Villain often barrels Overs, Gutshot,… and we can make fold his equity share. And when we get called we have some outs.

    goals of the week
    Next week my main goal is take up time again. I will use the time to plan the hand, analyse betsizes and pay attention to the stats and collect reads when I saw the showdown.

    goals of the week
    Next week my focus is still on taking up time. But I will use this time to improve my handreading process. I will start with the river. In chess I will try to contrate on tactical things.

    I like your betsize and did the same. He raised. But why 3betting. What does his hand look like?

    I don’t see the ugliness… except for the rare times he has the 7s, but if you are not going to call there, i will be very surprised, and must assume you have a read on him that he is the tightest assh0le in the world.

    With the 7s he would probably just minraise or a bit more, i doubt he would play it like that… i can not see you folding.

    nobody bluffs there…actually an relatively ez fold

    would you call with the K of spades if there is no 4straight? prolly not…

    Yes, it is a tight fold and the call is not the worst bc we do have the 2nd nuts…however, unless u know the guy is a mofo crazy idiot, this is nvr a bluff

    And then again… the more i look at it, the more i lean towards him holding 7?7s… with your big river vbet, he has to put you on As or a complete bluff, and in either case the ai fits…

    Yes ugly river, but as Gordon says, river raises are always the nuts… so is Ks the nuts for him?
    The result must be based on this particular player…

    In such situation we have to ask the following questions (if the answer is yes to one of both questions, we have to call):

    (1) Does he valuebet worse? I dont think that villain will shove a worse hand. We could have the nutflush oder straightflush. And even if Villain woudl raise a Kh Flush, he would make it smaller.
    (2) Could Villain bluff? First, villain was not very aggressive postflop. So 1 argument for a fold. Second our range looked like a Q Flush and better or a bluff. When we bluff and villain has nothing a small raise would be fine. And our strong line also reduces the possitbilty of a bluffshove.

    All in all its an easy fold.

    chess position of the week
    White ist next to move. What position is better and what are the plans for both sides?

    Goals of the week:
    These week my main goal is handreading. I will try this mainly on the river. rr-pots, cr-Pots and when I face a 3rdBAR. I will also try to take a break every hour so that I can calm down, to analyse myself and rewatch my session goals. In chess I will concentrate on tactical things. I will ask the following questions:

    (1) when villain moves: on which fields can villain move in the next move
    (2) what is my worse figure and where is the best field?

    learning target: handreading:
    I make small progress and avoid stupid calls, make thinner valuebets, make great Herocalls but a lot of work is still to do in the future. But I like it and my construct of planing a hand is getting better and better the more I implement.

    hand of the day:
    Would you be prepared to go broke?
