    common mistakes i see alot of...

    I dont claim to be any kind of great player, but this forum is supposed to be about helping others, so i figured i would make a thread with some common mistakes i see people doing quiet frequently...

    Shoving all into a pot worth 90 chips and you have over 2k chips and its still in the first level of blinds...
    Re-raising on the river without the nuts...
    Betting when you should be checking...
    checking when you should be betting... seems like people play ass backwards now days...
    chasing straights with possible flush on board
    chasing flushes with a pair on board
    raising out of position pre-flop (in the blinds) with what i consider weak hands...
    betting to get people to fold instead of betting to get people to call...

    im sure there are alot more, but im just hoping maybe atleast 1 personn will read this maybe fix a hole or two in their game...

    Whats wrong with Re-raising on the river without the nuts? If I know I have a better hand then my opponent on the river, I may Re raise to get more then what I could get? You don't have to have the nuts on the river to raise!! Play your opponent not your cards all the time and you all might get better IMO!!

    You dont specifically say you cant raise on the river without the nuts, but your insinuating that it is a bad thing to do when its not bad, all depends on the hand played and the opponent your up against is all!!
