      $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      MP3: $11.22 (224.4 bb)
      CO: $2.57 (51.4 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $6.35 (127 bb) 21/12/2.7/4.3/68
      SB: $5.70 (114 bb)
      BB: $4.32 (86.4 bb)
      UTG+2: $5.10 (102 bb)
      MP1: $6.14 (122.8 bb)
      MP2: $6.16 (123.2 bb) 37/4/1.6/0.0/70

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q Q
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.10, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.70, CO folds, Hero calls $0.30

      The guy hardly ever raised, so 4-Bet had to be something strong. So I called to see what the flop would give. I also had position on him.

      Flop: ($1.57) 3 5 3 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30

      I thought the flop was pretty harmless, thought I could raise him here with his very low bet but the problem was that I couldn't represent anything. So I thought of just calling to see the turn as it was very cheap. What should i have done here?


      Turn: ($2.17) J (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.55, Hero raises to $1.50, MP2 raises to $2.45, Hero folds

      He bet again on turn and I decided to raise him and see where I was at. I could represent JJ. Now in retrospect I feel that probably my raise wasn't right. If he had AA,KK,QQ he wouldn't fold. He could fold AK and I didn't think he had JJ as he wouldn't have 4-Bet with them. Should I even have raised him here. Actually should I even have called him pre-flop to begin with?

      Results: $5.17 pot ($0.25 rake)
      Final Board: 3 5 3 J
      Hero mucked Q Q and lost (-$2.50 net)
      MP2 mucked and won $4.92 ($2.42 net)

      min-raiseing - min-4betting from a tigth guy looks strong so is ok to just call his 4bet.

      On the flop his bet is weak and I would reraise him to protect against overcards, for information on his hand and if he calls and checks the turn you can check behind (since you don't really need to protect against anything) and reevaluate on the river.

      As played if you really feel he has a monster there just call the turn, because as I said you don't need to protect that much against overcards anymore and if he bets small again call the river as well.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Preflop: Against a min-raise I'd raise it even bigger ~$0,50.
      Postflop: Why do you turn your hand into bluff? Rather just Call him down and be happy if you even are ahead on the turn and reevaluate it on the river. I don't like your raise at all! Could easily be a trap.

      Best Regards.
