      Hey,

      I hit two pair on flop, I know I should'nt really be raising this hand, however I am on BU and everyone limps

      But my question is; should I have made a conti bet on such a board? I think the villain (MP2) has A rag which would give him x3 As and x4 10s as outs so 7/47 so like 1/7 but he would need to call $0.30 to see a pot of $0.77 so his pot odds are like 1/2.5 and I guess he should not really be calling? What you think pls?

      Play hand

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

      Known players:
      BB:
      $2.00
      UTG2:
      $3.95
      MP1:
      $3.90
      MP2:
      $4.50
      MP3:
      $3.35
      CO:
      $2.00
      BU (Hero):
      $2.08
      SB:
      $5.16


      Preflop: Hero is BU with J, K.
      CO posts deadblind, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 calls $0.05, CO checks, Hero raises to $0.26, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.21, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.21.

      Flop: ($0.9) Q, K, J (3 players)
      MP2 checks, CO checks, Hero bets $0.66, MP2 calls $0.66, CO folds.

      Turn: ($2.22) 9 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($2.22) T (2 players)
      MP2 bets $3.58(All-In), Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.22.

      If it's Gerv evaluating - I read the first few months of your blog - nice stuff! :) Will continue until I am up to date and follow with interest!

      Thanks,

      Hi,

      KJs is fine to raise against the limpers but make it slightly bigger.
      I would cbet 0.70 and shove the turn for value and protection.

      Poeh the Turn card is really nasty. His range is like Flushdraws (naked or with pair), revolving around Qx, Kx, Jx and that means a T as X is very very likely

      If you check back Turn you give away like 18% versus the FD but you are opening up yourself from getting bluffshoved on for example..

      i think shoving the Turn is fine but checking back is fine too actually, this is really tricky

      PS thanks , I still have to update the first post =)

      Gerv - thanks for the reply.

      I think I need to know more about opponent's possible range, which articles/videos would you recommend for learning how to judge an opponents range pls?

      Thanks,

      Poeh that's a good question. Mostly it comes by experience naturally.

      Besides that thinking logically with empathy also helps you (would he call or 3bet this hand?) You can also learn some BSS to see how they mostly react to certain raises with what kind of range
