      And this one?

      Villian 41/28/3

      Perhaps should have raised PF, but for some reason just called it.

      I felt the flop and turn bet were alright, and with those stats could be calling with 2p, even TP, or hoping for a 4 card flush.

      I know his river raise shows strength, but there's only one card that beats me, and for 3.4:1 odds to call it, surely that's acceptable?

      IMO he could still do this with a few different hands?


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J, K.
      MP3 raises to $0.04, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.03, BB calls $0.02.

      Flop: ($0.12) T, K, 5 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, BB calls $0.08, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($0.28) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, BB calls $0.20.

      River: ($0.68) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, BB raises to $1.20, Hero calls $0.70.

      Final Pot: $3.08.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a flush, king high(Jh Kh).
      BB shows a flush, ace high(Ah 3h).

      BB wins with a flush, ace high(Ah 3h).

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Preflop: Both plays are fine, either you Call or raise. Against fishy players I do like calling more.
      Postflop: There is not much to do, I wouldn't fold the river either. He may still have a lot worse hands like worse flushes and so on.

      Best regards.
