      Interested to hear your thoughts on this one. Felt a bit odd playing it.

      Villains a nitty player.

      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (9 handed)

      MP2 ($5.34)
      MP3 ($11.58)
      Hero ($10.00)
      Button ($20.90)
      SB ($12.12)
      BB ($1.84)
      UTG ($2.17)
      UTG+1 ($4.99)
      MP1 ($8.89)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 4[:club:] , 5[:club:] .
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.10, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.10, Button calls $0.10, 1 fold, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.45) 8[:club:] , Q[:club:] , 3[:diamond:] (4 players)
      BB checks, UTG+1 bets $0.1, Hero calls $0.10, Button raises to $0.4, BB folds, UTG+1 calls $0.30, Hero calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1.65) 6[:heart:] (3 players)
      UTG+1 bets $0.1, Hero calls $0.10, Button raises to $1, UTG+1 folds, Hero calls $0.90.

      River: ($3.75) 2[:spade:] (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.9, Button calls $2.90.

      Final Pot: $9.55

      Why so passive dude? I'd raise PF... but I'm crazy :D and the table was probably not tight enough for a proffitable raise PF, so just calling is fine.

      But on the flop you're too passive IMO. You don't have a very good flush draw, but a raise here may "force" better FD or even better hands to fold.

      I'd continue the aggression on the turn as it gives me more outs, and valuebet the river.

      You certainly could reraise preflop here, if you want to play sc from late position against one limper, but, an occasional call on a passive table is ok too.

      Flop seems ok to me. A weak draw, so limping and calling the small raise is all ok.

      Turn, though, now the draw is FD + Double gutshot. I'd maybe call the first limp, but semibluff reraise hard after the raise, and go broke with this draw if I didn't take it down straight away. Villain may or may not have a better flush draw, but your straight outs definitely compensate here. It seems he is trying to defend against the flush, and taking the pot with a draw is certainly a win.

      EDIT: Not even double gutshot, just OESD. :)

      Preflop: raising is an option.
      Postflop: I like the line: you get odds to call. A reraise is also an option, but it only makes sense if you have fold equity. Villain's line looks to me like he won't fold - but if you think there is a good chance he will fold, reraising is fine.

      I appreciate the comments. Being aggressive with big draws is definitely something I have to work at.

      At the time, UTG's nonsense did seem to make Villain look strong. Certainly, his language was strong in the chatbox afterwards :D
