      Hey again,

      open limper :) So this time I make 4bb + 1bb for the limp and hit the Nut FD on the flop + over cards. Villain checks I cbet. No check raise so I eliminate any sets - can I eliminate Flush from his range? I think he would have bet or check raised the flush unless it was a low flush?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

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

      Known players:

      MP3:
      $1.20
      CO:

      UTG2:
      $2.20
      MP1:
      $3.53


      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, A.
      3 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.23) 8, 2, 4 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.16, MP2 calls $0.16.

      Turn: ($0.55) 7 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.51(All-In), MP2 calls $0.51.

      River: ($1.57) 8 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $1.57.

      Results follow:

      MP2 shows three of a kind, eights(8h Ah).
      Hero shows a pair of eights(Kd Ac).

      MP2 wins with three of a kind, eights(8h Ah).

      I think he couuld also be drawing to a lower flush or not want to let go of a PP - No straight draws to worry about so I think in this instances my second barrel would have FE - does Fold Equity exist @ NL2?!?

      Please be as frank as possible with the feedback I am starting to think I need to let go of hands more often if I dont' hit.

      Thanks,

      AKM

      Hey,

      We cannot exclude sets/flushes from his range on lower limits. People do random things here and we should play our equity here. Equity here on the Turn is kinda reduced compared to the Turn.

      if he has a pair , hei s not folding but your shove requires him to fold 50% of the time IF you do not have equity. Since you have massive equity, I would shove too. He still might call with J:hK for example

      Is it wrong not to shove? Could we check behind the turn and

      -shove if another club comes
      -check behind/call bet if ace or king appear on the river
      -just fold anything else?

      Do we get paid out if we hit toppair or a 4 to a flush? That's the most important question ;)

      I think there is a chance. I see turn shove as a bluff, because if villain checks/calls flop on this limit, I think he has something and will not give up against second barrel.

      We mostly hit a flush so that means he has to have a flush as well (a pretty good one!) in order to get a payout

      Furthermore an Ace/King is also a classic scarecard so he might be reluctant to call with worse or we are already owned by 2pair+
