      Known players: (for a description of vp$ip, pfr, ats, folded bb, af, wts, wsd or hands click here)       
      Position:
      Stack
      MP3:
      $17.75
      SB:
      $14.69
      Hero:
      $9.45

      0.05/0.10 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J:club: , J:heart:
      5 folds, MP3 raises to $0.40, CO calls $0.40, BU folds, SB calls $0.35, Hero calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($1.60) J:spade: , 5:spade: , 5:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      Turn: ($1.60) 4:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1, MP3 folds, SB calls $1.00.

      River: ($3.60) 3:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2, SB calls $2.00.

      Final Pot: $7.60

      I think that against one or even two players I would re-raise pre-flop. But against 3 opponents I also called (shc also says call 15:) )

      On the flop I should lead out . I hoped that MP3 has overpair, then he would bet and I would re-raised:P Turn and River should be standard.

      IMO, call PF is OK.

      On the flop I'd check expecting to call a contibet from MP3. Why would you check/raise and scare away possible flush draws?

      Turn I'd lead out, but I wouldn't make a very big raise, I don't want to scare flush draws. IMO, 1/2 the pot is OK.

      I think river is OK.

      I would check/raise flop to build a bigger pot. If MP3 makes conti bet and even if CO or SB calls, my check/raise would give them good odds to hit the flush. Turn I could lead out half the pot and I don´t have to worry that everybody checks behind.

      But in order not to scare them, your check/raise would have to be small, and some players would find that suspicious and maybe you would not be able to stack them if they hit.

      I like the line. If he has an overpair, he will bet for sure and you get him stacked on the turn or river. If he has nothing, he may make a c-bet.
