      Play hand

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

      Known players:
      CO:
      $5.00
      BU:
      $17.29
      SB:
      $10.48
      BB:
      $8.80
      UTG1:
      $9.83
      UTG2:
      $5.43
      MP1 (Hero):
      $3.59
      MP2:
      $0.68
      MP3:
      $7.05


      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with K, K.
      UTG1 calls $0.05, UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, 4 folds, SB calls $0.23, BB folds, UTG1 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.8) 8, T, 3 (3 players)
      SB checks, UTG1 checks, Hero bets $1.00, SB folds, UTG1 calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($2.8) 6 (2 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($2.8) Q (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $1.00, Hero ?.

      I did the Cbet on the flop, but I felt something was wrong. The UTG1 is a slow player. So I checked the Turn to see how I was, and then he came on the River and fire $1 USD.

      So, what would you do in this situation?

      Hello Marlonmlk,

      According to the SHC one does NOT cBet this board because we have a trashhand (we can't even beat A:s2 for example!)

      So that was the thing that is played wrongly here

      As played on the Turn, the check back is fine and I call the River as played

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      ? what am I missing ?

      It looks like an overpair to me.

      IMHO bet flop. Bet turn or call river if we checked turn.

      Are you sure Gerv?

      On the chart, on the drawy board + 2 opponents says that if I have Overpair I should bet / raise

      Anyway, is this hand I called the river:


      River: ($2.8) Q (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $1.00, Hero calls $1.00.

      Final Pot: $4.8.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of kings(Kc Kh).
      UTG1 shows a flush, ace high(9d Ad).

      UTG1 wins with a flush, ace high(9d Ad).
