      Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      Final Pot: $0.87

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP2 shows a straight, six high (5d 4s)
      Hero shows (Qh Tc)

      MP2 wins with a straight, six high (5d 4s)



      This happens to me 5-6 times a session and I don't get it. When ever I play OESD when the odds are in my favour I never get it? I no its not bad luck it is just bad decisions that I make. Should I have folded after the flop/turn?

      I tend to just check/fold with a top pair when I have checked into the game, i like to have 2 pair or better if im going to play, Nl2 players will have such a wide limping range when your against 3 players chances are they would have a bigger hand.

      I have lost lots of times in this situation, so I dont bother anymore

      freeplay= 2 pair or better or check/fold

      Only an opinion here but it may make you feel better. The guy chased that draw with TERRIBLE odds. Whenever that happens to me (NL2, happens frequently enough) I make a note that says "may chase draws for thin value" and I feel happy knowing that if we played this hand 50 times over he'd probably be busto :s_biggrin: .

      I agree with Roo, I think it was Brunson who said this: "don't go broke in a nothing pot." If it is an un-raised pot, only play monsters. I have made that same mistake a few times. I do try to pick it up on the flop if it's heads up, but in a 4 way pot that's pretty ugly. I tend to play B/F with top pair in situations like this but I don't think it's successful often enough and I'm trying to stop. C/F multiway for sure.

      Hope the you flop plenty of monsters from the BB to make it a non-issue :D

      Hey Droewors,

      Versus Mp2 I like to bet the Flop and TUrn as well, if players that are not as crazy as him call you, i would not be so happy to bet out the TUrn and river as well

      As played I think it is either a check-f or a bet so I prefer betting here :)

      Best regards,
      Gerv
