      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $5.39
      BU:
      $5.84
      SB:
      $5.00
      BB (Hero):
      $6.80
      UTG2:
      $1.78
      MP1:
      $3.06
      MP2:
      $4.93
      MP3:
      $7.79


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7, J.
      UTG2 raises to $0.15, 4 folds, BU calls $0.15, SB folds, Hero calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.47) K, 9, 6 (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $0.35, BU folds, Hero calls $0.35.

      Turn: ($1.17) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.30, UTG2 calls $1.28.

      River: ($3.75) 4 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $3.75.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a flush, king high(7h Jh).
      UTG2 shows two pairs, aces and kings(Ad Ks).

      Hero wins with a flush, king high(7h Jh).

      my thought process:
      - i get good odds to call pre although i guess i could fold too
      - flop i called to see what happens on turn
      - turn i semi-bluff since i figure he must have a king, so he'd probably fold to ace.
      - river i get lucky.

      so the question is should i have folded pre?
      if i do call pre-flop, should i have-check raised the flop or folded?
      if i call the flop should i have check/folded the turn unless he gives me odds to call with fd??

      also just as a side note? if i have Jh9h instead and flop a pair with fd how do i play it then?
      check-raise the flop??
      lead the flop? or is that too strong?

      i would fold preflop but if i continue to play

      flophe is preflop agresor so its likely that he will bet flop after you r check..so i would bet myself and get some fold equity.
      - if you know that you will call his bet then its better to bet yourself-

      turn
      for semi-bluff i would bet about 0.80$ without overbeting pot

      Hello qnb07,

      Preflop: I'd just fold it preflop, we ain't getting correct odds against his stack. :)

      As played
      Flop: I don't really like either donking or either Calling, just because of his stack, with donking by that it means that we have to Call his raise. And I don't like the Calling either, since we don't hit that often on turn, to make the Call profitable.

      As played if flop was Check/Called
      Turn: I'd rather just give it up, I don't think that we have any kind of fold equity here at all against his stack, he is likely going to Call us even with a weak pair. Therefore Check/Fold is better play.

      Best regards.
