      Here is a hand in which my play was based on stats and on a read on my opponent.
      Preflop- my thoughts are its just 1c to complete and a multiway pot the implied odds outweight this minor cost to see the flop
      Flop- I hit 2 pair, exactly what I am looking for. I get raised on the minraised on flop, and elect to just call at this point to see the turn and keep the pot size down a bit,
      Turn- UTG comes out and bets pot, now I am becoming concerned he may have flopped the straight; however his stats indicate he is very loose and very aggressive, and in my short time playing with him I have already seen him make some silly bluffs; I put him on the straight draw, and decide if the 4 card straight doesnt show on the board that I will call down river bet
      River- Just following through on my turn read

      Hello boomer011,

      Preflop: Well, obviously the 1cent ain't a lot although the problem comes from mistakes what makes those kind of hands to play profitable. Rather fold it.

      As playe
      Postflop: Well, the problem is that you most likely just beat a bluff here. :P Myself I'd be really inclined to fold it on turn and wouldn't even be that result oriented.

      Best regards.
