      Hey again guys,

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):
      $4.00
      SB:
      $16.70
      BB:
      $7.13
      CO:
      $3.85


      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, Q.
      CO folds, Hero raises to $0.40, SB calls $0.35, BB calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($1.2) K, 8, T (3 players)
      SB bets $0.10, BB calls $0.10, Hero calls $0.10.

      Turn: ($1.5) J (3 players)
      SB bets $0.70, BB calls $0.70, Hero raises to $3.50(All-In), SB calls $2.80, BB folds.

      River: ($9.2) T (2 players)


      Final Pot: $9.2.

      It was great that villain gave me pot odds to call Gut sht, so I don't think I had any need to raise there on flop. After hitting I think shoving was the best way forward, right? He only beats me with flush if he did have spades which looked unlikely.

      Thanks,
      AKM

      Hello AKm247,

      I think you can call there on the Flop yes. you get 14:1 so it is a longshot but still a good out if you hit because your draw is pretty disguised + if he has JT/KJ/Q9 = Gin!

      So on the Turn you played it well by shoving, nice hand =) !

      Best regards,
      Gerv
