      Loose game. BTN is the only one showing some type of aggression.
      BB is tight passive

      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG: $11.02
      UTG+1: $3.92
      MP: $5.14
      MP+1: $4.26
      CO: $3.73
      BTN: $3.16
      Hero (SB): $4.94
      BB: $1.61

      Hero posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.04



      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero has 8:diamond: A:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, CO calls $0.04, BTN calls $0.04, Hero calls $0.02, BB checks


      Based on the ame so far I think I am again mid/low PP, low A's or K's mid small connectors.


      Flop: ($0.16, 4 players) J:diamond: A:heart: 7:diamond:

      I thought my hand could be good 50% of the time. higher As would have bet PF, BTN would have also bet QJ,KQ 99+

      Hero bets $0.16, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.48, Hero calls $0.32

      here I thought BTN has a weak A, JT. could have 77 but more likely 88 or 89


      Turn: ($1.12, 2 players) A:club:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Why did I check? I think I checked because I thought a weak A will not fold and 77 will kill me.

      River: ($1.12, 2 players) J:heart:

      any suggestions on my play and what I should have done on the river?

      Thanks

      If you belive he can hold QJ, QK etc..

      JJ is definetly in his range, 77 also. But if he was holding 77 JJ he wouldnt of checked on the turn unless he had some kind of shot.

      Shoudnt of given him a free card though.


      Tbh, with the raise i think he was chasing his draw, and just didnt hit it on turn, so took the free card very happily.

      99% of the time will raise on the river, unlses you think he will raise, then check raise.

      Hello fatkinglouie,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      While we are just in a freeplay pot and we are OOP I'd just Bet/Fold it on the flop rather than continue there. There ain't gonna be many cards on which we can continue and we could be already against very strong hands. Even if we expect the BU be aggressive, it's still a freeplay pot.

      But as played I'd definitely Bet the river and even very big.

      Best Regards.
