How to play every street bad.

I bombed out of tourney last night early. For the most part didn't hit flops with hands like AQ and AK. I didn't hit my flushes at all and ultimately got it in with pocket 10s twice and lost both of them. Once to pocket Jacks and once to KQs when K came on the flop. Overall, the play was pretty weak at my table; but I was just getting to know people so I stayed pretty conservative (which is my game anyway).

Here is a hand that I played badly on every street.

Let me know what you would have done differently; especially on the river.

Villain was a 28/8/2.2 over 6K hands who I show losing over $1,500.

Have a nice day!!!

I don't think you played every street badly. Just bet the river.

Glad you came out last night. If you "bombed out", how bad did I do going out before you?


See you next month.

I like a bigger C-bet than just half pot. I don't mind slowing down a bit and just calling the turn. But I think a value bet on the river is in order after he checks there. I can't see a 6 leading the turn and then checking the river.

I was going to "out" you Jamy; but I decided to be nice.

I don't understand how you played every street bad on this one...
