      Hi,

      Opp limp/called a lot but new to the table.On flop I decided that I can be behind and wanted to keep them both in pot.On turn I almost had right immediate odds to call.

      Preflop play: It's ok, isolating limpers is a must I think.

      Flop: I don't like your first call. You're the aggressor so you should reraise mp3 to make at least one of them fold (bet around $0,50). MP2 probably just calls your raise and if he shoves you are probably behind but you will call because of his middle stack. Many times one of them folds and since you have position on them you can check behind turn card if it comes really bad like this.

      As played:
      Turn is a fold in my opinion. You have many outs that's true (15 I think) but I don't think that's a good call.

      Why would you like to keep them both in pot? Definitely they both hit something and what would you do if MP3 raised on turn? Would you reraised with air against two? I don't think you should play against two opponents in this kind of situation. They can have sets or some 2pair or even one of them chasing flush...

      Both of them were ss that's the main reason of weak line.

      Hello dallievas,

      In long run you loose more money than you earn with such a Call on turn, therefore just fold it. :) Otherwise seems to be fine, against those shorties I'd also prefer to just Call and take the odds.

      Best regards.

      Hello,
      Ok more discipline on turn.
      Results follow:

      MP2 shows two pairs, kings and queens(K Q).
      Hero shows a flush, ace high(A T).

      Hero wins with a flush, ace high(A T).

      but I coolered him :D ,my bad play was rewarded.
      Thanks a lot
      Best regards,

      Yeah, good for us. :D But just put those hands into equilator and you will see how often we lose or win. And you can see that we more often lose money in long run against him when we Call in such spots.
