      how can you play 6/4 at NL5 6-max?

      Player had no stats as he had just joined the table. I call because my hand is okay vs most peoples button range. I flop TP and play check call. I turn OESFD and call the turn too. Could I ever play check-raise on the turn?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $4.97
      BU:
      $5.57

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:club: , Q:heart:
      3 folds, BU raises to $0.20, SB folds, Hero calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.42) K:heart: , J:heart: , 4:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.3, Hero calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1.02) T:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.85, Hero calls $0.85.

      River: ($2.72) 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Final Pot: $2.72

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      BU shows a straight, ace high (Ac Qc)
      Hero shows (Kc Qh)

      BU wins with a straight, ace high (Ac Qc)

      maybe even just donk the flop for protection value,or as played CR the flop for protection /value.
      The turn is just the worst both draws complete. i think B/F but calling isn't the worst play either. JMHO

      Yeah the turn sucks because if creates the illusion that I'm drawing to loads of outs when I can actually be drawing pretty thin, or to a chop.

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Don't know how you can play with those stats on 6max. :D But I guess your line should be totally fine for the reason that it would be ugly if for example we donk the turn and then get raised.

      Best regards.
