      Hey guys,

      I personally cant look to this hand. I think i played it horribly.Could you please judges or anybody else put your opinion. I personally think it would have been more action if I would just called the flop bet. In the way I played I personally thought that i miss a value bet on the river but I missread the stats. SB=9/5 , CO= 11/0; TY

      I think you played this hand really good. A2s isn't good enough to isolate pre.
      Flopp: maybe a bigger raise.
      Turn: Good to bet big because he must have been on a draw of somekind.
      On the river the fullhouse made it and I belive you made a nice check.

      Preflop, flop and turn are all fine. There's no need to isolate yourself against hands that have you dominated with A2, flop is a good raise, and turn is a good bet to try and build the pot.

      However, sets would probably play the flop a lot faster by 3betting you, also, I would expect a donkbet on the river if he'd made his full house. For these reasons I would bet the river again to maximise value, probably about $0.75 :)

      What type of hands are you putting him on? 2par, str8, set and flushdraw?

      There's all sorts he can have here, lower flushes, straights with 34s and 9Ts (There are some straight flushes in there as well :D ), 2 pairs (56s, 67s 75s, 97s) but not many sets (And I suppose straights as well) as he would usually fastplay these on the flop and try to get it in, as nobody puts anyone on a flopped flush :D The only really flush draws I put him on are things like KQ, KJ, QJ. So whilst the river pairs the 6, which improves 67 and 65, I think we're ahead sooo much of the time that we should be betting out for value.
