      You should have 100bb in your stack, set auto-rebuy.

      I would bet more flop and turn, over 0,70 flop and 1,40 turn.

      on the river... it's though. shoving is out of question I think, the choice is between folding and calling. his line is very strong, dont think he can have AA or QQ as he would have 3beted preflop, but the Q:spade: completed for a KT. the backdoor flush doesnt scare me at all...

      may be a bit but weak but I would fold. I consider this a close call, and as coach says, it's better to make a close fold than a close call.

      Yeah I was also worried he might have a straight but I didn't figure he'd call a raise pre flop with KT and I didn't think he would call a gutshot too on the flop. I thought he might have made a two pair when he raised on the river. Flushdraw didn't even cross my mind :D

      so think what kind of hand would stay in play after flop, I would say: Ax very likely, Jx unlikely, 2x unlikely (but 22 still possible). now after called Cbet u should (I would) assume he plays one of aces, on the turn u have Qs, so u should bet larger, around the pot, coz he might have Aspade + xspade and u dont wanna give him river card cheaply. U posted ~1,2 and he called. according to articles u r allowed to call turn only with 2 pairs or better. ( here I assume he called coz he has Ace and very likely spade and suited) River is: SPADE, u posting block bet, u getting raised u have to assume u r beaten. I guess he played something like A spade 8+ spade.
      If it makes u happy I'd prolly call as well, coz I still work on pr0 folds :)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      First of all you should Bet the flop & turn bigger. ;) Protect your hand! But otherwise I'd be towards Bet/Folding since I just can't see what we beat there, 22 would most likely raised earlier and of the same for any 2pair. So it's either KT or the backdoor flush. Or of course if we expect him to bluff but that wont happen here. :P

      Best Regards.
