      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      MP2: $11.01 (110.1 bb) 16/9/1.3/1.6/311
      MP3: $10.93 (109.3 bb)
      CO: $7.25 (72.5 bb)
      BTN: $3.70 (37 bb)
      Hero (SB): $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $4.75 (47.5 bb) 9/5/3.5/0.0/142
      UTG+2: $8.45 (84.5 bb)
      MP1: $11.99 (119.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J Q
      CO posts BB OOP, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, MP3 calls $0.10, CO checks, BTN calls $0.10, Hero completes, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.65) 6 9 9 (6 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, MP2 checks, MP3 checks, CO checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.65) T (6 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.30, MP2 calls $0.30, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.30

      Should I even call here?

      River: ($1.55) 8 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.90, BB folds, MP2 raises to $3.29, Hero folds

      Don't think I should have raised on the river. I should have checked and called a bet. What do you think?

      Should I have folded. He could have had a straight as well. But he could have hit a club draw on the turn too. Nobody raised the flop and he got a free turn making him a flush draw. Or the sick Bastard was slow-playing a Full House or Quads all along. Such a tough spot. :f_confused:


      Results: $3.35 pot ($0.15 rake)
      Final Board: 6 9 9 T 8
      MP2 mucked and won $3.20 ($1.90 net)
      Hero mucked J Q and lost (-$1.30 net)
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.40 net)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Fold it on the turn! You could already be there drawing dead and drawing for reversed implied odds.

      Best Regards.

      Would it be a mistake to raise here pré-flop? It's possible judging by the MP2 stats that his holding brodways too but I think we have a better edge overall by raising still since we will likely pick up some donkeys calling aftewards as well.

      I wouldn't do it while having so many opponents in the hand, rather play it postflop.
