      CO is 44/22 100hand sample, fold to 3bet 0% 3of3, AF1.8

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.20(BB) Replayer
      SB ($20.10)
      Hero ($20.40)
      UTG ($24.33)
      UTG+1 ($24.28)
      CO ($19.58)
      BTN ($21.36)

      Dealt to Hero A:heart: K:spade:

      fold, UTG+1 calls $0.20, CO raises to $0.80, fold, fold, Hero raises to $2.70, fold, CO calls $1.90

      FLOP ($5.70) Q:heart: K:diamond: J:spade:

      Hero bets $3.50, CO calls $3.50

      TURN ($12.70) Q:heart: K:diamond: J:spade: 8:diamond:

      Hero bets $14.20 ????

      Is this a spew? While playing I thought, that his range on the turn consists mostly JT,QT,KT, maybe random Tx , also KQ, KJ, QJ, and AT, against that range equity wise im flipping.

      I don't like the overbet because you might fold out QT, JT. I would just bet 8-9$ here. I think overbetting AK is more suitable on A44, A63 kind of flop.

      Hello jachis,

      The problem on the flop is that actually this kind of board hardly hits his range. Even if he is a station then he will have a lot of broadways there. Therefore we should already consider what we going to do on the flop and then have a backup plan for the turn.

      Do you ever think he would be betting with worse hands on the turn? Like lets say JT/QT or whatsoever? I would rather say that he is Checking behind here. While there isn't that much value I might even Check the turn and take a look at further actions.

      Even against very wide range as this:

      Board: Q:heart: K:diamond: J:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    52.61%  47.66%   4.96% { QQ-TT, ATs+, KTs+, QTs+, JTs, T9s, ATo+, KTo+, QTo+, JTo, T9o }
      UTG+1  47.39%  42.43%   4.96% { AhKs }

      Our equity is still pretty much flipping. :) And even if you think there is so much value then do you really think shoving is the best idea? He will rarely Call with a lot worse.

      Best Regards.
