      How to play this hand on the flop turn and river to maximize win and minimize loss. And what do you think he has?

      On the flop I put him on J6, JQ or J10 and least likely 66 because he has
      been raising with low pocket pairs in an unraised pot.

      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) Poker-Stars Converter Tool from (Format: FlopTurnRiver Cards)

      UTG ($9.25)
      MP ($8.85)
      CO ($3.70)
      Button ($1.90)
      Hero ($11.75)
      BB ($12.10)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with , .
      UTG calls $0.10, 3 folds, Hero completes, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.30) , , (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.3, BB raises to $0.9, UTG folds, Hero calls $0.60.

      Turn: ($2.10) (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.9, Hero raises to $1.8, BB calls $0.90.

      River: ($5.70) (2 players)
      Hero bets $5, BB raises to $9.3, Hero calls $3.95 (All-In).

      Final Pot: $23.60

      If he has J6, you win 35% of the times.
      If he has JT, you win 38% of the times.
      If he has JQ, you win 45% of the times.

      IMHO you're in a borderline situation, so you maybe could have b/f, c/f or c/c the flop. I think you don't have such a strong hand to play b/c, specially being OOP.


      Well, you hit your flush, now it looks like this:
      Against J6, JT or JQ, you win 91% of times. :D

      You decided to play c/r, a very strong move on the turn, so, if he has brains, he will know you hit your flush.

      As played, I'd advise you to raise more, at least 3 or 4 times his bet.

      And, you could (should?) have played b/r, trying to get all-in asap or getting him out of the hand.


      The worst card showed up, and against any of the hands you mentioned, you have lost. If you were almost sure he had those hands (because of flop play), you can only play check/fold.

      Making a bet is pointless, because if he has better cards, he will raise, if he has worse cards, he will fold (no extra money for you). :)

      Just for curiosity, what did he have? ;)

      His reraise on the flop would have made me fold i'd say, because if he had top or mid pair he probably would just have called, so you can put him on a set or an overpair there, against which you are behind.

      Then on the turn i also bet the flop, since i'm in front. And if c/r i'd bet more than 2 times his raise, at least 2.7$ imo.

      And the river i play check/call. Folding the nut flush is really tough, except he moves all in, then it's worth thinking about it.

      Bet/call flop is fine,
      c/r turn bigger,
      shove river.

      And I would suggest isolate limper with raise pf.

      i would definitely raise PF you are in SB so you have to play OOP, so isolate limper or make him fold ;)

      hand as played i would c/c flop with good odds, raise more on turn, i would also call the river , so you "just" have to call cause u got really paid if u are in front and the opponent could also have hands that u can beat.
