      Hi,

      I have some doubts in the way I played these hands yesterday. I have a lot of problems deciding when to fold or go all-in when I have top pair with top kicker, or when I have overpair, but the other player is pushing me... Lots of times they have set and I lose all my money X(

      Sorry, but the hands missed, I edit them here :D


      Hand 1:

      Full Tilt Poker
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
      9 players
      Converter


      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is MP3 with Q :club: Q :diamond:
      3 folds, MP2 calls, Hero raises to $1.25, 4 folds, MP2 calls.


      Flop: 3 :spade: 3 :club: 4 :club: ($2.85, 2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $2, MP2 raises to $4, Hero calls.


      Turn: T :diamond: ($10.85, 2 players)
      MP2 bets $6, Hero calls.


      River: 7 :diamond: ($22.85, 2 players)
      MP2 is all-in $12.75, Hero calls.

      I have overpair, but he is fighting the pot very strongly. Re-raise again in the flop and if he goes all-in fold my hand? Or just call in the flop and fold in the turn against his bet?


      Hand 2:


      Full Tilt Poker
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
      8 players
      Converter


      Pre-flop: (8 players) Hero is Button with J :club: A :club:
      3 folds, MP2 calls, CO folds, Hero raises to $1.25, BB calls, MP2 calls.


      Flop: 9 :spade: Q :heart: J :heart: ($3.85, 4 players)
      Hero bets $2.5, BB calls.


      Turn: K :diamond: ($8.85, 3 players)
      Hero checks, BB is all-in $2.05, Hero calls.


      River: A :heart: ($12.95, 2 players + 1 all-in - Main pot: $12.95)



      Results:
      Final pot: $12.95

      Did I play it all right or should I have folded in the turn?


      Hand 3:

      Full Tilt Poker
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is MP2 with A :diamond: J :spade:
      UTG calls, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, 4 folds, BB calls, UTG folds.


      Flop: J :diamond: 9 :spade: 2 :heart: ($2.85, 2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2, BB raises to $4, Hero calls.


      Turn: 9 :diamond: ($10.85, 2 players)
      BB bets $7.5, Hero calls.


      River: A :club: ($25.85, 2 players)
      BB is all-in $11.9, Hero calls all-in $8.65.
      Uncalled bets: $3.25 returned to BB.

      Similar situation to hand number one...

      Hand 1) you´re beaten probably by 44, it´s not very likely that he has 33 or 34.

      So if you believe that he has 44 then fold on the flop. If you don´t believe re-raise 12$ and call his shove:) Depends on your reads. Against unknown I would fold (if he isn´t aggressive)

      Hand 2) I would check/fold flop. Against 3 players you are probably behind and there are a lot of draws. If you bet out then put him all-in on the turn, you can´t check/fold.

      Hand 3) Similar to hand 1 indeed. The board is so drawy that I would probably call flop and to his strong turn bet I´d fold it.

      1. He c/r you on the flop, so he should have a hand here. He may have: a 3 (not very likely...), a 4 (I don't think he c/r this), an overpair (very likely) or a flushdraw (likely). Given this range, I decide at the flop to be commited - the question is how to get the money in. I'd call the flop as I'm IP and how for another turn bet and then raise the turn. If he has a weaker pocket or a FD, we get more value compared to raising the flop directly and thus making our hand explicit.

      2. I don't make a c-bet her, as any bet commits me. I just c/f as the call of the small stack is often a trap and I have a very marginal hand on this board.

      3. I call the minraise, but fold to the strong turn bet. I think TPTK is not enough given his strong line.
