      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (9 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      CO ($12)
      Hero (Button) ($25.25)
      SB ($27.67)
      BB ($48.14)
      UTG ($8.75) 44/16 33 hands
      UTG+1 ($25)
      MP1 ($24.87) 35/0 75 hands
      MP2 ($35.35)
      MP3 ($6.28)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with Q, K
      UTG bets $0.50, 1 fold, MP1 calls $0.50, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) 7, 4, A (3 players)
      UTG checks, MP1 checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($1.85) 10 (3 players)
      UTG bets $0.75, MP1 calls $0.75, Hero calls $0.75

      River: ($4.10) J (3 players)
      UTG bets $1, MP1 calls $1, Hero raises to $4.75, UTG calls $3.75, 1 fold

      Total pot: $14.60 | Rake: $0.73

      would you change the raise size on river? do I put the short stack all in?
      Do I overbet and risk not being seen with royal? :)

      Hi,

      first of all: nh
      Raising to just the size that the small stack is all-in should be fine.
      You could consider to overbet shove on river BUT you have to do it as bluff, too. => Balancing!
      Before you do that you can untoggle the checkbox "Muck unseen/loosing hands", if you are keen to show the royal to everyone.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      Hi,

      nh oedipa!

      Just a quick one regarding the royal not being seen.
      In most poker site there is a bonus for the best hand of the day. Does it have to be seen i.e players showing cards on the river to get the bonus?
      In which case I would only call the river! (on Titan the bonus is 100$)

      Hi Dublimax,

      as you could see from the converter, the hand was played on full tilt and I am not aware there is/was a bonus like this :)

      Its just the question waht brings you more money. If you think the midstack calls the all-in, then push.

      But I dont think its a mistake to chose youre raisesize.

      This is not right.

      3-handed, minraised Pot, fish in the hand with a midstack...there is no balancing necessary,

      Basically balancing is not necessary against fishy players.
