      What range do you put UTG on?

      If you think he has a flush on the turn, then why bet? rather just X behind.

      When he X/C's the turn I think we have the best hand when we make this straight. I dont think I would fold......

      it's possible he would play a boat like that..

      i placed him on a range of OESD, 2nd pair on the turn

      But I think he would re-raise the flop with 2P to protect against flushdraw.

      It does seem strange to x/c turn then donk shove the river....

      Just wait for Veriz to evaluate, I'm just trying to learn how to analyse hands :)

      i always welcome discussions with my hands.. it gets me thinking more and give's a different perspective.

      i meant 2nd pair . like 10Q hand.

      TxQ :club: would make sense, but i cant see him open raising it from utg.

      his play doesn't make sense to me. the hands that you've sucked out on, would have protected on the flop.... unless he is overplaying KK+

      The more i look at it his play does seem too strong, the only hand that makes sense to me is JQ or TT, but again i think he would raise the flop with TT.

      What site are you playing on? cool blog btw :f_cool:

      Hello gnawhalak,

      Standard spot to Check behind the turn! You wont make any hands to fold which called on the flop. And otherwise on the river I would most likely just give up my hand, he has enough of FH combos in his range.

      Would you have Checked the turn would be easy snap-call on the river but now it's not anymore vs pot size Bet, especially after our line.

      Best Regards.
