      The preflop was pretty standared. The Villian was a random, and I didn't have much more notes.

      I pretty much stuck to the chart for the flop. I raised like it had said. Then after I was all in? since my stack was going to be less than half size. I realize the board was drawy, and there were more than 1 player, so that might not have been a good call. Should I have just called?

      I think you did fine there! But I would have raised bigger preflop, like 3x + 1x per limper, so 0.16$..

      The way I see it, you're up against two bad players if they have 1.02$ and 1$ in their stacks.. And they don't play some short stack strategy because they call preflop, so IMO, they are bad players! :) I think you can make an assumption because of that..

      On the flop, you have a good overpair, and you'll find a trash most of the times in their ranges (else why wouldn't they raise preflop?), and yeah that trash is going to him sometimes two pair hand like this time, but I think you're good here most of the time, and shoving is good move.. :f_thumbsup:

      As always, wait for Gerv.. :D

      the board is T:d9:d2 which is pretty drawheavy. You see that 2 opponents have shown interest in this pot/board with a lead & a raise

      I am mostly folding here because our hand only does well versus 2 combo draws. Versus a made hand & a draw, our hand is terribly

      Best regards,
