      Full Tilt - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (CO): $11.99
      BTN: $10.00
      SB: $11.94 ----------- 8/4, 50 hands
      BB: $13.94
      UTG: $10.16

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has Q:club: A:heart:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.30, fold, SB calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.90, 3 players) 8:diamond: A:club: 7:spade:
      SB checks, BB bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50, SB calls $0.50

      Turn: ($2.40, 3 players) A:diamond:
      SB checks, BB bets $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, SB raises to $4.00, fold, Hero raises to $11.19 and is all-in, SB calls $7.14 and is all-in

      River: ($26.18, 2 players) T:spade:

      Obviously (?) I should fold to SB's check raise. My friend Boris thought I should raise on the flop. I'm not sure. Help!

      Hello jbpatzer,

      Flop: It's damn sick spot, I don't really like raising here, since we aren't going broke against him anyways, only why we could raise is that we will find out cheaply how well does our hand do, but just Calling is totally fine.

      As played
      Turn: I'd also still go for pot control, as I decided to do so on flop, but after the SB decides to Check/Raise I'd rather prefer to fold against it, we haven't invested that much and he could already have a FH or something similar, rather than just Ax. He is way too passive for that and his line looks way too strong, Check/Call flop and then Check/Raise turn, often is a FH. Therefore Call/Fold would be my line, unless I know the opponent.

      Best regards.

      Yes. I think you're right. He had the, with hindsight, fairly obvious 88. :f_cry:

      But how do we learn from mistakes? Only if we do them, therefore at least next time you will remember such hands and try playing Bet/Fold. Good luck on tables!
