      I have sworn my self a lot of times not to bluff at these stakes but I really had a feeling that I can take this one. I think I can make many pp fold and AK. What are your thoughts ?

      Hello theguy,

      Preflop: And what would be your line if you hit your Ace for example? Often times such min-raises are pretty strong and he may as well have AK which dominates us. Also we don't hit often enough, we have to take stabs postflop but it's rather expensive and very risky for the reason that those opponents on those stakes are just too loose.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd just fold it on flop to avoid further mistakes. Even if we get that good odds, I am not calling it. When you hit your Q, you could easily be far behind. We will never know where we stand, and the same goes for turn, fold it. As played the river, I don't really like it but it's the only way to win the pot. Overall, you have to just fold it earlier. Don't put yourself with such callings into trouble. Although your line on river just doesn't make sense at all, why didn't you raise the turn if you had straight?

      Best regards.

      Nah, I wasn't talking about you having straight on turn. But wanted to rather point out that if you had straight there then you would raise on turn rather slowplay that long.
