      Known players:

      0,15/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with K:heart: , Q:diamond:
      UTG calls $0,25, UTG1 calls $0,25, Hero raises to $1,40, 2 folds, MP3 calls $1,40, CO folds, BU calls $1,40, SB calls $1,25, BB folds, UTG calls $1,15, UTG1 calls $1,15.

      Flop: ($8,65) K:spade: , K:club: , 7:heart: (6 players)
      SB checks, UTG checks, UTG1 checks, Hero bets $4, 4 folds, UTG1 calls $4,00.

      Bet small since pot is already big and to get calls from weak pairs.

      Turn: ($16,65) A:spade: (2 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero bets $6, UTG1 raises to $30,85 (All-In), Hero calls $21,70 (All-In), UTG1 gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      bet just enough to shove river.
      Villains line is very strange, he shouldn't have much K in his range, rather smaller pp's. I can't fold my hand, i only need 30% equity.

      River: ($72,05) J:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $72,05

      Like how you played it. He may always have there sometimes KJs, KTs, so I think you can´t b/f turn and unless he has 77 you should be ahead on the turn rest of the times.

      Is it really likely for a 14/11 TAG player to have KTs,KJs in his limping range, especially on utg?

      sorry for digging up old hand, but i'm now looking through as many hands as i can because i want to adapt to new limit. I hope it's not wrong to dig them up.

      As I said before, it is very hard him to put exactly on 77 and then b/f turn. Chance of him flopping boat is 0,74%, so I think it is the same unlikely than him having KJs or KTs or just trying to bluffraise all-in smt with 88

      Hello chocular77,

      Guess we already had the hand in the coaching and went through it. :> So I am going to give my feedback here.

      Flop: As mentioned already that you should definitely consider betting it bigger here ~$5 to gain value from any kind of PPs.

      As played
      Turn: I don't like the idea of betting here at all. He will anyways have hard time calling with a lot worse while his limping range according his stats is going to be mostly PPs and nothing else. So therefore I'd rather skip the thin value and Check behind here to maybe get value on the river and maybe even hit ourselves big time and then extract value. But as played you have to Bet/Fold, it's mostly going to be towards 77 and that's it. What else do you expect thinking guy to limp preflop/call preflop from UTG?

      Best Regards.
