      Hi guys here is a hand I am posting up for review. I had no reads on the player

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      €0.02/€0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with J, A.
      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to €0.15, MP2 folds, MP3 calls €0.15, 4 folds, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: (€0.37) T, Q, A (2 players)
      Hero bets €0.27, MP3 calls €0.27.

      Turn: (€0.91) J (2 players)
      Hero bets €0.65, MP3 calls €0.65.

      River: (€2.21) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets €1.05, MP3 calls €0.89(All-In).

      Final Pot: €4.15.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, aces and jacks(Jh Ac).
      MP3 shows a straight, queen high(8h 9h).

      MP3 wins with a straight, queen high(8h 9h).

      I bet 75% for value postflop, i hit 2 pair on river, i bet 75% again. I figure he has an ace. I am thinking he's just a callin station, I didn't give him much credit so I end up going bust.

      In retrospect I played too hastily and didn't take a good look at the drawy board

      Hello M1rCea,

      Preflop: I'd still do it €0,20.
      Postflop: Mostly I am betting the turn for free showdown and by that I mean I am very often just going to skip the value-bet on river and Check/Fold it, even against his stack. Just I don't see many worse hands which may Call us. Kx gives a straight, there is a flush possible and so on.

      Best regards.
