      This is a bit of a stretch maybe.


      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($0.48)
      Hero ($0.88)
      UTG ($1.81) 50/25/0/0.8 vpip/pfr/3bet/af but only 17 hands
      UTG+1 ($1.16)
      UTG+2 ($0.86)
      MP1 ($0.53)
      CO ($8.75)
      BTN ($1.77)

      Dealt to Hero Q:club: A:heart:

      UTG raises to $0.04, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.15, UTG calls $0.11
      Minraise -- what does that mean?
      I have a goodish hand, and UTG is v loose, so I raised bigger than normal partly to (hopefully) increase fold equity, and partly to compensate for being OOP.

      FLOP ($0.31) Q:spade: 7:heart: 8:spade:

      Hero bets $0.22, UTG calls $0.22
      I flop top pair, and have best kicker. Std CBet

      TURN ($0.75) Q:spade: 7:heart: 8:spade: J:heart:

      [color=red]Hero checks, UTG bets $0.18, Hero ???
      Only 6 outs to improve.
      I'm ahead of any broadway hands except QQ+, but he's not betting like he has those. Is he slow playing a set? Air?

      So what now and why?

      Hey Vorpal,

      I like your preflop and flop play. However, on the turn you have an easy shove with 2/3 potsize left and very drawy board. He is a calling station and can have lots of worse hands there that will pay you off. If you check/call there then you isolate vs his made hands while he will check his medium strenth and drawing hands back.

      Best regards,
