      Stats: BB is a regular multitabler(8 or 12) sample is 300+ hands VPIP 13/ PFR 9/ agg 1,5 / cbet 89

      My image was very tight on this table 7/3 or smth over 60-70 hands, a bit card dead there and a bit tilted about it, but it was the last orbit for my session and I decided to raise.

      The play on the turn, was it wrong to shove? I mean pot was already larger than stack size and he seemed willing to bet. I thought I may still get calls from AA, maybe AK.

      Hi scriptacle,

      The Flopplay is more interesting than the Turnplay because What is your reason for calling his c/R with middlepair and a backdoorflushdraw?


      on the Turn you hit trips so shoving on his bet is ofcourse the best play

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Well I can't say it was an entirely reasonable call, .47 for 1.35 pot, but he had passive turn stats and very active flop. So after R/C I was hoping to pick smth on the turn, a J or some draws and see a cheap river. I was sure I was behind, I don't think he was check/raising there with anything less that AK/AA, I don't think KJ is in his range.

      Well 5 outs if he has AA/AK But on the flop his range isn't really AA/AK he can have KQ, KK, QQ and I could very well be drawing dead. So pretty long odds.

      If you had a tight image on the board he could put you on AQ, so probably he called with KTs or KJs, I guess with A9+ he would re-raise. Or he thought you was just trying to just steal the blinds, I dunno if you did steal the blinds alot or not, but if you do, he could put you in a lower range, like A5s-A9s, and called the 3bb raise and tried to steal the pot on flop.

      As you can see there's some scary cards on board plus flush draw, a pretty easy spot to steal the pot.
