      Hey again,

      This hand I am not sure about how I played;


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG1:
      $5.61
      UTG2:
      $5.03
      MP1:
      $5.54
      MP2:
      $5.91
      MP3 (Hero):
      $2.60
      CO:
      $5.00
      BU:
      $4.59
      SB:
      $3.46
      BB:
      $2.00


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K, A.
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 2 folds, SB calls $0.18, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.45) T, Q, K (2 players)
      SB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.35, SB calls $0.25.

      Turn: ($1.15) 2 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.50, SB calls $0.40.

      River: ($2.15) 9 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40.

      Final Pot: $2.95.

      I don't like calling such a small pot bet and don't think it is worth folding, however I was unsure how to react on the turn since I think it was a blank and if he still bets small I think he's still on a draw.

      So the rive is an awful card actually, however because he bets so small making the pot $2.55 and $0.40 to call so 5:1 and my curiousity maybe gets the better I call. Should I have just given up on the river or was it worth calling 'just in case'?

      Thanks,
      AKM

      Interesting spot - lets see how I do :)
      I think I'd raise bigger on the flop, make it pot size and fold to a shove maybe. I don't think either of your raises are enough to get someone off a draw.
      As played, yes he probally has a jack and hits his straight on the river, but I'd still call for 40c because just occassionally you will be ahead or splitting.

      Yes good point - I remember now the turn bet I looked at his raise and
      re-raised 5 times that without taking the pot size into consideration. This is one thing I should have played differently

      Heyhello!

      I would raise the Flop to an X amount where I can shove on the Turn underpotsized. THat means that I probably raise to $0.75 here on the Flop

      Raising according to this bet is very very bad . one must raise according to the pot

      On the turn - as played - I would shove

      Best regards,
      Gerv
