Great Comments

On the first hand everyone says I made a monster flop. Did I? Should I be willing to go broke on what could end up being a flush draw? What am I trying to accomplish by raising big here? Am I likely ahead on this flop? I know if I am not ahead I have outs but what is the purpose of raising here.

The QQ hand is all good advice. I think I call on these hands sometimes to see if I can hit a good flop. I should just re-raise pre-flop and when he comes over the top of me fold.

Hand three is the one that I consistantly play poorly. My main problem is TPTK is a shit hand and I want to keep the pot small in case I have been outdrawn. I for sure had to fold that river but how do you play TPTK? If I lead out with $5 then do I bet the turn and pot commit myself? Do I drop it there? Am I willing to go all in? How the hell do you play these kinds of hands. The TPTK is the most common and hardest to play hand for me.

Why is the great waffles (complement intended) playing 0.25 tables. are you multi-tabling lower limits in lieu of the $100 and $200 tables. and if so, it it paying better.

I suck at cash man. I am learning cheap. Besides my bankroll is not huge only like 700 or so right now. Besides although I have alot of potential (I think) I have not done anything yet.

Honestly, I've played the $50 tables on FT and I didn't find the play to be anything different than $25. Give it a shot sometime.

The first hand is indeed huge. You flopped top pair + a flush draw. Any Queen, ten or club should give you the pot. You should be betting and raising with these kind of flops all day.

As for the AK hand, control the size of the pot by checking on the turn. If anyone called a bet on this draw heavy flop, you need to re-assess where you stand at that point. TPTK doesn't really look good on that board.

The idiots are in full force up to $200 NL. Everything below that is fish city.

At $25 nl 6 max I'm not sure a reraise with QQ really tells you where you are.Use your instincts and PT with GT+ because so much depends on the table and villian in the hand.If you did reraise and were raised back it shouldn't be an auto fold imo.

Know your villians and their standards is what I'm trying to say.At $25nl I'd call an all in with AQ v many very loose tilty fishies but fold it without blinking if he was a TA.

Now when you gonna start playing 6 max?

Wes is right, either you have weak/tight or weak/stupid all the way up to $200NL.

After that you need to pick your spots.

On the first hand everyone says I made a monster flop. Did I?<

Yes. You have top pair on board (so you have a hand) and you have a draw to the nuts. That's more than most people, or everyone else, will be holding in the hand.

Should I be willing to go broke on what could end up being a flush draw?

That depends on the betting and the quality of your flush. If you're holding the Ace, then you have a lot of incentive to go broke trying to win.

What am I trying to accomplish by raising big here?

Information and pricing out the other draws. You could also shoot for a free card on 4th street if you don't hit your flush and you're last to play.

Am I likely ahead on this flop?

DEFINITELY. You're ahead of any draw (because you have top pair on the board) and you have a large number of outs against a better pair, two pair, or trips.
