      Hi, posting this hand mainly for villain's action on the river. For me this hand shows that I'm lacking in experience in this kind of situation (more hands played more experience, so it's fine :D ) and also in attention to the stats. Ok, here's my opinion about this hand:
      Pre-flop:standart open raise from CO.
      Flop:It's really good board for me - TP + gutshot. Cbet size is fine I think.
      Turn:Board pairs, but must make another bet. Could bet here something about 0.35$.
      River:Possible flushdraw completes, board is paired, QJ also possible. He snap called me all the way and then he makes that 0.02$ bet. Totally confused here :f_confused: Really don't know how to play against those plays. Snap calls often indicate a draw and flusdraw completed. So I just called here (was really tough not to raise), it looked like he wanted to provoke me. When he showed J:club: J:spade: I was like wtf?!
      I won the pot but felt like I lost this hand by not making more value on the river. However I'm still learning, need more practice :) .
      Oh, and villain's 36/0 after 50 hands.

      Hello koosMaras,

      Turn: Bet it bigger here as you mentioned already. There are still a lot draws against which we want to protect.

      As played
      River: I think I'd rather Call, since he still might trap us or something like that. And what worse will he Call us here anyways if we raise? And I wouldn't really try to raise here. He will anyway most likely fold his hand, unless we make it small and cheap, but sometimes we might just valuetown ourself.

      Best regards.
