      Good morning,

      Still dealing with many limpers preflop - I am just raising a bb or 2 higher than usual to counter this.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

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

      Known players:
      CO:
      $1.49
      BU:
      $1.31
      SB:
      $0.98
      BB (Hero):
      $0.80
      UTG1:
      $0.80
      UTG2:
      $2.78
      MP1:
      $2.07
      MP2:
      $0.64
      MP3:
      $0.71


      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, K.
      UTG1 posts deadblind, UTG1 checks, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.14, UTG1 folds, MP2 calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.31) 4, J, 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.26, MP2 calls $0.26.

      Turn: ($0.83) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, MP2 calls $0.24(All-In).

      River: ($1.47) 5 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $1.47.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of aces(As Ks).
      MP2 shows two pairs, jacks and eights(8h Js).

      MP2 wins with two pairs, jacks and eights(8h Js).


      So I start to put his range on mainly PPs - the limp and then calling my raise - as well as some random hands like K9s, JTs, Ax. Based on this I have 59% EQ pre.

      When the flop comes I may be behind based on the range I have approx. 40% EQ and make a cbet - I can rep over pair or over cards & FD. The A comes and I think I am ahead now - I have 68% EQ also can rep Flush so I shove.

      Any feedback on the play please?

      Gracias!

      Heyhello,

      The hand is fine played on all three streets. Be careful on your limit to put people on ranges because it can be pretty random. It is therefore handier to just play your own equity which is given and easy to rely on
