      So many hands posted and seemingly only one person to judge them. How do you cope Veriz?

      Tell you what, heres another hand;


      Full Tilt Poker $5.00 No Limit Hold'em - 9 players
      DeucesCracked Poker Videos Hand History Converter

      SB: $3.34
      BB: $5.00
      UTG: $2.15
      UTG+1: $2.87
      UTG+2: $5.22
      MP1: $3.08
      MP2: $1.75
      Hero (CO): $5.09
      BTN: $10.35

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is CO with 5 :club: 4 :club:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, 1 fold, SB calls $0.13, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.45) 7 :club: T :spade: K :club: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.32, Hero calls $0.32, SB folds

      Turn: ($1.09) 8 :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($1.09) 8 :spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks


      Unsure what he has but I suspect a med strength hand or draw that can fold to a turn or river bet or will it? How much should I bet and on which street?

      Will judge some hands as I just moved up to NL25 (Veriz, one less person for you to judge, thanks for the evals!)

      Do you have any stats on villain?

      Against pretty much every opponent I'm betting the turn for around $.80 when checked to here. I think your hand is strong enough given that there are plenty of K's in your range plus you have a flush and gutshot. Its hard to put the BB on a range without stats but you're probably going to fold out some tens from his range with a bet here and if not you can reevaluate on the river with position.

      On this river card my line would be dependent on your opponent but as played I don't think you can represent much so checking is probably best option.

      Hello DaPhunk,

      Veriz was on vacation for a day. :D We had mid summernight here. :) But now back in track.

      But about the hand it seems to be fine. Would rather as well take the free card on turn.

      Best regards.

      why are you calling on flop ? to float or to catch flush?
      In example if opponent have range like KT,Kj,jj,tt,99,T9o ...
      equity shows ~34,76% for 45s and ~65% for opponent.
      pot odds you are getting - 32/77 = ~41% - that means you have to win in about 41% so this call would be profitable but you are getting only 34,7% ... so if you are not planning to bluff and take pot down on later streets isn't your play already wrong ?

      If you hit your flush. Do you expect to get something like $0,51? The implied odds are exactly that. And if you even get more the bigger profit you make in long run.

      Of course we have a small flushdraw and that might be the main reason why I would prefer just to fold vs his line. But while we opened such a hand and don't know the opponent it's still profitable I guess.

      epic

      and i might jam river, as villain range is very much capped and he'll fold

      other option is betting 4bb or 6bb or something, an amount you think will make him fold air
