Rolling along

Been a few days since I played online so I got in a good 90 minute session today. Was up over 3 buyins which rocks over 450 hands. The biggest thing that went right was folding big hands against nits which has always been a problem for me.




In this hand antojke looks like a bigger overpair or a set. His stats are 12/11/3.9 (600 hands) so the call of the PFR and then the raise on the flop is a giveaway. His high aggro factor means that this could be a draw but I would be taking a coinflip at best and most likely a big dog. So pitch it away.



This hand is one where I use big hands like 99-AA to reraise squeeze and build big pots while I am most likely ahead. The shortstack calling the $1 raise really disguises my hand. On the flop being OOP I bet 1/2 pot so I don't give away any free cards. Villian in this hand is playing 29/24/6.0 over only 60 hands but I expect him to be super aggro. So the push here will more often just be a move to get me off of a AK or AQ type hand so the call is much easier. I have also committed more of my stack to the pot so I will stack off with overpairs in this situation.

In the past I end up all in each time I have an overpair and not use the data that is sitting in front of me. The only other exciting hand of the day also made me some cash by utilizing my data.



The villian in this hand had played only 65 hands and was showing 27/24/4.0 on his stats. The other stat for him that really stood out to me was that he was 3 betting 18.5% of the time! So I figure he is really using his position and 3 bets to win his cash. So when he reraises me from the button I am not giving him credit for a big hand. That made it so much easier to stack off with ATo there because I think I am ahead of his reraise range a lot of the time. He left the table shortly after this hand which always makes me feel good.
