      the plan was to attack certain flops against a cbet (he was stealing a lot- I also consedered active blind defence). Without a hit I would have folded on this flop. I thought he might bluff the river on this board after my check on turn.


      Known players:

      0,01/0,02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:club: , 8:spade:
      7 folds, SB raises to $0,06, Hero calls $0,04.

      Flop: ($0,12) T:club: , 9:heart: , 8:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $0,08, Hero calls $0,08.

      Turn: ($0,28) J:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($0,28) A:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $0,16, Hero calls $0,16. ???

      Final Pot: $0,60

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      SB shows (Kd 3d)
      Hero shows two-pair, aces and eights (Ac 8s)

      Hero wins with two-pair, aces and eights (Ac 8s)

      Hey man,

      I'd 3bet pre ... I guess there is much more value :)

      as played ... ugh

      I'm not sure I'm calling this flop :) There is just like no turn that helps us :)

      but ye you get lucky and on the river it's easy call ... he will always bet turn with Q :)

      sometimes I defend my blinds passively, sometimes with a 3bet. It depends on the opponent, but even against the same opponent I mix it up not to get predictable......They usually fold when I attack suitable flops with a raise or c/r.

      I called the flop, because he could be just cbetting with air. There was no value in raising that flop but didn´t want to just fold either. (I wasn´t calling a normal sized bet on the turn though, even if the turn was a 2)

      Hello Dback357,

      If you think he is going for easy give-up on the turn then sure, floating the flop is fine. Although the problem is that you may face a lot of cards which you don't like. :) Like any draw which complete something, any overcard. So practically almost the whole deck. :D Unless it's an ace or 2-5.

      But overall not much to say about the play, seems like nice hand!

      Best Regards.
