      i was playing this hand

      UTG2 as you may see was kinda tight preflop though he was not really agressive, though i dont remember quite well as i played this hand 2 days ago.

      Either way on the flop i had a Top pair so i bet 30 cent for protection, but UTG2 called

      On the river he bet himself, 40 cents and i went all in and won

      but looking back i dont know if this was a good play he could've bet cos he made a three of a kind, but i thought "its improbable that he goes to the flop with something with a 2 as a kicker" thats why i called and since he didnt bet on the flop and i had position over him i interpreted that as "he doesnt have a high pocket pair

      what do you think of this hand?

      TY in advance, padezulmiro

      Hello padrezulmiro!

      According to the SHC, we have to fold AJo here. We do not call hands preflop because our range is weak, we mostly don't know what to do on Flop/Turn/River because it is so complicated + his range is likely stronger than ours at all times

      As played we obviously valuebet the Flop and call the Turnshove but I do not get into these spots and I kindly ask you to restudy the MSS articles again :)

      Best regards,

      Just a question

      if by any chance i knew that UTG2 was looser, would my hand be more playable from the pre flop? or should i fold my hand anyhow according to the SHC»
