Being aggresive


Sometimes when I tag hands for review and have an advisor tell me what I should or shouldn't do. I noticed that I have some aggression issues. For example I raise pre flop then say I hit top pair on the flop. I bet the flop as a cbet and have a caller. and a lot of times I check the turn thinking he's calling with something and want to be cautious in case I might be beat. But upon review the advisor tells me to bet and not check. Plus my bet sizing is way different from what they suggest. Just wondering if I should really listen to that advisor or just play my game. But also don't want to be timid and leave money on the table. I guess I could use something like "a rule of thumb do this" kinda thing if anybody has one.

    In general when in or out of position, most hands that you bet pre and C bet the flop you should be betting the turn with... your going to have to find your frequency for betting and make betting adjustments as the turn and river come out...however this game is where you practice to see what and what does not work... look for bluff hands that have great playability and value hands that will at least be best most of the time when you bet and get called... good luck and stay aggressive

    How about posting some hands and lets see the situations? Are these wet or dry boards? What top pair did you hit? TPTK or potential kicker problems? What are the stack depths? All of these factors have to be taken into consideration. IMO, the best way to examine this question is through specific hand analysis. It would be good for you and good for the other players here.

    Added - in addition to selecting an advisor, also select to show the advice of all advisors. Sometimes you will see 1 advisor recommend one thing but the average of all advisors recommends something else. Regardless, I wouldn't put too much stock in the advice on its face. Use the Brain function and see what's behind the advice.
