      Cake Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (5 handed)

      saw flop | saw showdown

      SB ($35.94)
      BB ($18.10)
      Hero (MP) ($10)
      CO ($10)
      BU ($6.90)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with 10:club: , J:club:
      Hero bets $0.40, CO calls $0.40, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.95) 7:club: , 9:spade: , 4:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.64, CO calls $0.64

      Turn: ($2.23) 8:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, CO calls $1.50

      River: ($5.23) 2:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.50, CO raises to $7.46 (All-In), Hero calls $3.96 (All-In)

      Total pot: $20.15


      Preflop: A bit loose open, but I was pretty tight at that table so it could be OK.

      Flop: 2 overs, FD and gutshot. I can't think of many better flops :) so standard contibet 2/3 pot.

      Turn: I've hit my flush so I'm betting again for value now. I think I could make it a little biger like $1,75-$1,80

      River: Complete brick. I think check is not good here because he could check behind some 2 pair hands or even a straight because of posibal flush, so I decided to bet 2/3 again as those hands will probably call it. When he shipped it I think I know I'm beat here, smaller flushes would probably raise the turn, but still, I have only $3,96 left, and pot is $20, can I fold here?

      I have no stats (Cake Poker - no HUD) and no history with that OPP.

      Hello Oly0909,

      I like your thoughts about the hand and I totally agree about the betting size on turn, I would likely bet it bigger for us to get more value on river. And on river we can't really fold our flush on such board, it's way too hard since we are getting pretty decent odds. Would say, nice hand!

      Best regards.
