      Heyhello,

      So if I am reraised with AJ I should fold according to the charts - I played it differently due to loose play from this player and also since it's a min reraise and I have position.

      Can we call in some instances - I am going to change betting size to at least 4bb raises so in this instance it would have cost me 1bb to see flop.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG1:
      $1.53
      UTG2:
      $1.30
      MP1:
      $2.93
      MP2 (Hero):
      $0.74
      MP3:
      $1.31
      CO:
      $1.18
      BU:
      $2.63
      SB:
      $2.25
      BB:
      $2.79


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J, A.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, 4 folds, BB raises to $0.10, Hero raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.61) 8, 7, K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.44, BB calls $0.44.

      Turn: ($1.49) Q (2 players)


      River: ($1.49) 2 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $1.49.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows high card ace(J A).
      BB shows a pair of eights(8 A).

      BB wins with a pair of eights(8 A).

      Villain misses the flop and I think I can rep the K in this spot so for the amount a cbet cost I shove thinking I have fold equity.

      I could have folded from the start but I think I was ahead to begin with - I usually choose tables using Poker Table Ratings and colour code players then watch whilst I wait for blinds so I have an idea of the players and this one was loose. As far as range goes I don't put K in his range based on flop play and thought A rag (this seems to be what I come up against often).

      Thanks,

      AKM

      Hey,


      You have to be more specific with ''loose'' . Loose can be him playing 51/5 but also 39/38, 20/20 which is totally different from each other.

      Therefore I do not like your bluff4bet because you are always committed and you are just better off shoving preflop then. What I would do is just call his 3bet and play some Poker.
