    The Nash Equilibrium charts are a great tool to understand when to go all in depending on the amount of big blinds you have and the hole cards you are playing.

    I strongly recommend checking the following links and read thoroughly to better understand how they work:

    It is hard to find someone following these rules by the book, but watching examples and going through the charts will give you a better perspective of what to think when facing a player heads up. A key rule when playing poker is to always put your opponents in a range of cards they could have and these charts help you to always do this.

    As for the second video, playing top pair on the flop is always tricky and I believe aggression is important here. I´m the type of player, that when flopping top pair, will always bet strong to attempt to take the pot in the second round of bets.

    Always be careful with 3bets on the flop and remember your kicker. If you see to suited cards on the flop, well that is a reason to be cautious as well if you see chances of a straight.

    Bottom line is that practice will help you understand the different situations you will face when hitting top pair on the flop. Keep following the videos here and post your questions for the pros to answer them.

    The best thing you can do is share your hands with others and learn from the mentality different players would apply to the hands you´ve played.
