      Stack
      SB:

      0,15/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:club: , K:spade:
      Hero raises to $0,90, 3 folds, SB raises to $2,95, BB folds, Hero calls $2,05.

      overall 3B = 4%
      3B on SB = 4% after 300 hands

      These are scary stats so i called IP

      Flop: ($6,15) K:diamond: , 9:spade: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $3,5, Hero calls $3,50.

      Turn: ($13,15) 6:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $3, Hero calls $3,00.

      River: ($19,15) T:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $3, Hero calls $3,00.

      Turn and Riverbets look weak, do i lose money by just calling river?

      Final Pot: $25,15

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J:club: , T:spade:
      4 folds, SB raises to $0,75, Hero calls $0,50.

      Openraise on SB = 30%
      FCB = 80%, TCB = 32%
      Easy call since i can float him a lot.

      Flop: ($1,50) Q:heart: , J:spade: , J:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $1, Hero calls $1,00.

      Turn: ($3,50) 9:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $2,35, Hero calls $2,35.

      Seems like he really has something, but should i raise against his fdraws and Qx?

      River: ($8,20) 5:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $3, Hero calls $3,00.

      Don't think that i get money from weaker hands by raising.

      Final Pot: $14,20

      Hi,

      1) raise turn, shove river for value. No reason to think he would do that with worse hands, so you should always be ahead and should raise for protection and value
      2) Easy raise on the turn or river. He would b/c there easily overpairs or Qx if you make 7$ on the river

      Best regards,
