      MP2: $5.39 (107.8 bb)stats: 37/26 after 19 hands

      I´m totally not sure about this one. I decided to go betting right away, even though the turn looked a bit strange.
      I don´t know how to interpret the minraise on the river. Is it a strong line or weak line? Should I call it or reraise it? As played - what about the river?

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K 4
      2 folds, MP2 calls $0.05, 4 folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.12) 2 4 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, MP2 calls $0.08

      Turn: ($0.28) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.25, MP2 raises to $0.50, Hero raises to $1.35, MP2 calls $0.85

      River: ($2.98) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.52 and is all-in, MP2 calls $0.52

      Results: $4.02 pot ($0.17 rake)
      Final Board: 2 4 4 5 8
      Hero showed K 4 and lost (-$2 net)
      MP2 showed 3 A and won $3.85 ($1.85 net)

      Hello,

      There are not a lot of A3s, 63s in his hand so his minraising range is as follows:

      Board: 4:club: 4:heart: 2:diamond:  5:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    68.76%  66.49%   2.27% { 55, 22, A4s-A3s, 64s, 54s, 64o }
      MP3    31.24%  28.96%   2.27% { Ks4d }


      That said you are not very much ahead against him so the only play you have is to call and to call again on the River

      3betting does not make a lot of sense as a hand like J4s is not really in his range
