      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FlopTurnRiver)

      saw flop|saw showdown

      SB ($8.90)
      Hero ($13.60)
      UTG ($8.85)
      MP ($3.85)
      CO ($37.10)
      Button ($10)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, K.
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.35, Hero calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.65) Q, 4, K (2 players)
      SB bets $0.6, Hero calls $0.60.

      Turn: ($1.85) 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.8, Hero calls $1.80.

      River: ($5.45) 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $4.1, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $5.45

      Lets start with saying, I think I played this really crappy, and I dont think Im wrong hehe. A reraise on the flop or turn seem to be a much better play right? But where? Is the flop or the turn the best place? And as I played it, I really cant call his bet with the board now showing a 4flush, right?

      And one last thing, should I have reraised preflop instead of calling? My experience of him so far was that he was much looser raising from the SB first in than normally.

      Right away on the flop : You need to protect your hand against single card draws and you have to figure out where your hand is at... if it's called, the turn is an easy fold, he might already have a flush or set by then.

      Yeah, ofc, youre right. And ofc, fold to a 3bet as well right? But what if he just calls and then checks to me on the turn, is is better to just check behind and then call or bet the river? On a non- :club: river ofc

      Depends on the size of the bet.
      The potsize before the turn in case of a reraised flop and checked turn would be about the same.

      I probably would consider calling any half potsize bet or smaller, folding to bigger bets. All without reads that is.

      reraise pf or reraise flop and go broke.
      Flop raise make it 2,5$ or 3$.
      If he calls the reraise, shove any non :club: Turn.

      It is very unlikely that he has the flush
      and you miss value and give expensive freecards!

      You are in position this is nice for a reraise.
      You have a read that he is lose this is nice too.^^

      Time to show him that this is your blind :D


      Why coldcalling is not that great (besides you are phil hellmuth):

      You only hit 30% of the flops and he will win
      many pots with contibets vs you.
      If you dont make moves postflop when you dont hit you will lose money.
      These moves need much skill and experience dont bring your self in trouble.

      Reraise is cheap, clean and easy to do.

      Either raise flop or call the flop and raise any non-club turn. But you have often the best hand and want to get value from AK and protect against the fourth club.
