      Hi,

      No hands on villain.

      iPoker - $0.05 NL (6 max) FAST - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: $7.43
      UTG: $1.92
      MP: $5.34
      CO: $5.09
      BTN: $4.20
      Hero (SB): $5.19

      Hero posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.07) Hero has K:heart: J:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.15, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.30, 2 players) 2:club: T:heart: 7:spade:
      Hero bets $0.20, BB raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.20

      Turn: ($1.10, 2 players) Q:heart:
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.55, Hero raises to $2.06, fold

      Hero shows K:heart: J:heart: (High Card, King)
      Hero wins $2.09



      Wondering if I am being too reckless here or the play is fine. In particular on the flop. My thoughts on flop were: min raise is pretty weak, he could well have a draw like 89 or a low pair. I have 2 overcards plus back-door draws I could pick up (and I did nicely), plus with him being so weak I might even be ahead, and I might have fold equity later on.

      Also, is it ok to be committed on turn like that? I think I am check raising even if he bets strong on turn (like he bets pot, I shove)

      Thanks a lot :heart:

      Hi,

      If you think he is bluffing then 3-bet is usually better option on the flop, since that would give you most fold equity against air and you likely would not c/rai turn unless you hit your draw

      Nice shove on the turn- nothing else to do with royal draw, but if you were for example 3-bet to 0.8$ on the flop then you can still shove that turn card and expect to have the same or even more fold equity against Tx hands

      best regards,
