      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB

      Button ($13.17)
      SB ($10.81)
      BB ($10)
      UTG ($10.86)
      UTG+1 ($3.75)
      MP1 ($10.30)
      Hero (MP2) ($10.09)
      MP3 ($2)
      CO ($16.24)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K, J
      3 folds, Hero bets $0.40, 3 folds, SB calls $0.35, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.90) 4, K, 10 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.90, Hero raises to $2, SB calls $1.10

      Turn: ($4.90) 9 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($4.90) J (2 players)
      SB bets $2.91, Hero calls $2.91

      Total pot: $10.72 | Rake: $0.53

      Results below:
      SB had Q, Q (straight, King high).
      Hero mucked K, J (two pair, Kings and Jacks).
      Outcome: SB won $20.38

      As it played out I think Villain should have RR preflop. But he slowplaed and got middle pair and donked out. Then cought a miracle runner. I went for pot control because my KJ isnt the best hand and calling with two pair here could be profitable in the long term. The best hand he could have in this spot IMO was KQ. Turns out he is a tight moron :s_confused:

      Hello Slimijs,

      I don't like the raise at flop at all! What's if he shoves or 3bets us? I don't think that we want to go broke there. This is a way ahead/way behind situation therefore just Call it on flop and reevaluate further streets. Otherwise fold it on river, you don't beat much there anyways when he decides to bet there, likely only bluff.

      Best regards.
