      Hello qMantas,

      Flop: Why do you donk? Why didn't you for example Check/Raise here?

      As played
      Turn: Depends what we expect him to raise here? Do you expect to see some KQ/AK type of hand play this way? But overall it's pretty close spot, even if we expect to see such hands:

      Board: T:spade: J:heart: 8:heart:  K:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    50.24%  50.24%   0.00% { KK+, JJ-TT, AQs+, KJs+, AQo+ }
      UTG+1  49.76%  49.76%   0.00% { 8s8c }

      Then the equity still isn't the best. As we see would be 10x easier to play the hand if we would just Check/Raise the flop and would practically be committed on turn. :) So do you think you are getting the implied odds for set-mining if you even Call being OOP?

      River: Well, you beat the same hands on turn if you Call as on river. :) Which part did you go for then? Implied odds? And if you expected to be ahead then you should have shipped the turn rather than call it.

      Best Regards.
