      do you do anything different here? how do you react when he just flats the flop with so little behind?


      , $0.25/$0.50 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 6 Players
      LeggoPoker.com - Hand History Converter

      MP: $50
      CO: $21.31
      BTN: $19.06 [Loose/Passive]
      SB: $136.03 [TAG]
      Hero (BB): $58.54
      UTG: $88.30

      this particular Loose/Passive opens often, but becomes passive postflop

      SB(TAG) seems decent.


      I 3bet to a slightly bigger size than usual as pot is 3ways and
      it lets me enjoy a nice stack to pot ratio vs BTN, while also making it more likely I can isolate.


      Pre-Flop: K:spade: A:spade: dealt to Hero (BB)
      3 folds, BTN raises to $1.50, SB calls $1.25, Hero raises to $5.75, BTN calls $4.25, SB calls $4.25


      I see no reason to bet more than just over half BTN's remaining stack here, and I doubt the SB has much that crushes me that he wouldn't have 4bet pre

      Flop: ($17.25) A:club: K:heart: Q:spade: (3 Players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $7, BTN calls $7, SB folds


      Turn: ($31.25) 7:diamond: (2 Players)
      Hero bets $7, BTN calls $6.31 and is All-In


      River: ($43.87) 3:heart: (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

      Results: $43.87 Pot ($1.50 Rake)
      BTN mucked T:club: J:club: and WON $41.68 (+$22.62 NET)
      Hero mucked K:spade: A:spade: and WON $0.69 (-$17.87 NET)

      Just unlucky there imo, no way can you give up on the turn when he has just over 1/6 pot size bet left and you have top 2. So really it doesn't matter about him just flatting on the flop because I don't think there is any way you can get away from that, i'm a bit shit with odds but I think you might nearly be getting odds to get it in as a semi bluff drawing to a boat even if you knew he had a flopped straight.

      full boat draw + flush draw would probably give me ~26% equity vs a made straight on flop I would guess. i'm estimating that though

      - no
      how do you react when he just flats the flop with so little behind?
      - put him all-in on the turn, since he would call your shove with any pair+draw or any Ax
