      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      CO: $10.37 (103.7 bb) 29/13/3.7%3b (82 hands)
      BTN: $16.38 (163.8 bb)
      SB: $3.83 (38.3 bb) 50/8/11%3b (24 hands)
      BB: $9.17 (91.7 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $12.18 (121.8 bb)
      MP: $10.29 (102.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A K
      Hero raises to $0.40, MP folds, CO calls $0.40, BTN folds, SB calls $0.35, BB folds

      Flop: ($1.30) J 4 8 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.75, CO folds, SB calls $0.75

      Turn: ($2.80) 3 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.10, Hero calls $0.10

      River: ($3) A (2 players)
      SB bets $2.58 and is all-in, Hero calls $2.58

      $8.16 pot ($0.37 rake)
      Final Board: J 4 8 3 A
      SB showed 8 8 and won $7.79 ($3.96 net)
      Hero showed A K and lost (-$3.83 net)

      Flop - cbet was probably a bad idea because I am unlikely to make both these loose players fold.

      Turn - I realise the cbet was not the best plan and I don't think a second barrel will do much on this blank card. But I have to call the minbet.

      River - spiked my TPTK and couldn't lay it down. But it's hard for him to be bluffing a missed draw on such an unconnected board, so perhaps I should have been more suspicious of a tricky-played monster?

      Hello member001,

      Don't like CBetting in first place on such a flop being multiway. Just leave the pot alone while also having looser opponents in the hand.

      But otherwise not much to comment.

      Best Regards.
