      Hello,

      He doubled my bet after my raise on the flop. So I guess we could put him on a strong hand. Against unknown, should I include 76 on his range? We're ahead if we include it. What about A7-A6?

      Board: A:diamond: T:spade: 7:club:  6:diamond:

      MP3    30.54%  24.29%   6.25% { TT, 77-66, ATs, A7s-A6s, 76s, ATo, A7o-A6o, 76o }
      SB     69.46%  63.21%   6.25% { AhTh }


      Board: A:diamond: T:spade: 7:club:  6:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP3    76.45%  58.26%  18.18% { TT, 77-66, ATs, ATo }

      Hi, cpers.

      Interesting hand.

      I think firstly you need a reason to check/raise the flop. You have to think of why you do it. After that, I think the rest of the hand kind of "plays itself".

      So... what was your reasoning to check/raise the flop?

      Hello cpers,

      Why do you Check/Raise the flop so small? I would just go for pot size raise there, so ~$0,28. There is nothing to think about even why to Check/Raise the flop. :P We are doing it for value and protecting from any kind of draws.

      But as we continue and on those stakes they can easily even overplay just TP I wouldn't be able to fold my hand on the turn, I'd just ship it vs his range which may include also even weaker 2pairs.

      Best Regards.

      Well, that was where I was trying to get at... it seems to me that if we are doing for value on the flop it doesn't make much sense to stop and have doubts on a brick turn...

      Yeah I did the raise for value since the pot still small. And of course I snap shoves the turn. Although my six sense tells me that he got pocket six, and as always my six sense is right :f_biggrin:

      Well, then obviously his play was really bad. :D But neither wasn't yours good either with the Check/Raise size. :P
