      Dealt to Hero K:spade: A:club:

      UTG raises to $0.10, fold, UTG+2 raises to $0.30, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.25, UTG calls $0.20

      FLOP ($0.92) 9:diamond: K:club: Q:club:

      Hero checks, UTG checks, UTG+2 bets $0.80, Hero calls $0.80, UTG folds

      TURN ($2.52) 9:diamond: K:club: Q:club: 7:club:

      Hero checks, UTG+2 bets $1.85, Hero raises to $23.69 (AI), UTG+2 calls $3.55 (AI)

      RIVER ($13.32) 9:diamond: K:club: Q:club: 7:club: 3:diamond:

      Hero shows K:spade: A:club:
      (Pre 30%, Flop 5.5%, Turn 18.2%)

      UTG+2 shows K:heart: K:diamond:
      (Pre 70%, Flop 94.5%, Turn 81.8%)

      UTG+2 wins $12.77

      Pre- The reraiser is around 10/7 guy but W$SD around 25%. Therefore he misplays his strong hands postflop so I thought it is best to call and let him bet his weaker hands to me. Other player is a fish so I elect to call.

      Flop- I go for check call. Maybe I should have reraised here but I think that definitely isolates me vs better hands.

      Turn- I pick up the nut flush draw and take advantage of some fold equity by representing a monster. I always have outs if he calls. Sometimes I think he calls with worse like KJ AQ or AK freerolling a split.


      What do you think about this type of play? I was on a heater all day so maybe it was a bit rash to shove it here.

      Hello FlashDavin,

      Don't really like it cause I doubt you rarely will have enough of fold equity here nor you don't have the equity either vs his strong range, we need ~42% equity at least:

      Board: 9:diamond: K:club: Q:club:  7:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    34.34%  21.09%  13.26% { AcKs }
      UTG+1  65.66%  52.40%  13.26% { QQ+, 99, AKs, KQs, KcJc, AKo }

      So nope, I don't really like it. :( Might even go for crying fold vs his 2nd barrel cause Calling wouldn't make sense either while we most likely wont get paid if we hit our 4card-flush.

      Best Regards.

      I knew call was the wrong option and I thought folding was too weak. Turns out this seems to be the right play. Thanks Veriz!
