      Another set that I dont think I have played very well.

      I cbet, and barrel the turn to protect against hands that have a pair and a club like JcQx etc.

      I should probably paly betfold on the river but instead played check call. I figure he would raise the turn with any flush that isnt the nuts, but he isnt very aggro so maybe not?

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 5:spade: , 5:diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.30, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.30, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($0.75) A:club: , J:diamond: , 5:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.6, CO calls $0.60.

      Turn: ($1.95) 9:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.2, CO calls $1.20.

      River: ($4.35) 2:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $3, Hero calls $3.00.

      Final Pot: $10.35

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows three-of-a-kind, fives (5s 5d)
      CO shows (Kc Qh)

      Hero wins with three-of-a-kind, fives (5s 5d)

      hi Meemawuk,

      This thread belongs in the hand evaluation forums too so I will move it there now.


      PS regarding the hand-
      i like the play actually. i would also check/call river to induce bluffs. probably a hand that isnt a flush wont call a 3rd barrel, you get more value this way.
      although the fact that he is passive might warrant a fold. hmm but our hand is pretty strong, even if he only bets TPTK+, we are probably still good.

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Well, vs such station-like opponent who will have a lot of Ax in his range I'd just bet myself the river to avoid him Checking behind those and at the same time give us hard time when he bets very strong.

      Best Regards.
