      Hey,

      I was wondering if here I should be more careful about the drawy board? The villain makes a pretty weak bet at the pot I think so I re-raise to make it too expensive for him to call with just top pair or a draw. I do not think that calling was an option here, am I right in my assumption?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      UTG2 (Hero):
      $2.05


      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with T, T.
      Hero raises to $0.20, 6 folds, BB calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.42) Q, A, T (2 players)
      BB bets $0.15, Hero raises to $0.47, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.57.

      Thanks as always :)

      WP, standard play in my eyes. Calling would be to miss value from draws etc. If he got a A or Q he is never getting away with it. He was empty at the flop next time you probably gets more money from villian!

      Hey AKM,

      Nice hand. The board is way too drawy to slowplay here and if you don't raise him you miss value from draws as Saren pointed out already.

      Thanks for the feedback guys, it is really helping and I really feel my game is improving. I think that pre-flop and flop play are getting much better, obviously always room for improvement and I would like to post more hands to review my turn & river play. So just a thank you for your feedback I guess! :f_cool:
