      Hello weijer,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Preflop: You have to ask yourself why do you Call in first place here? How you going to show profit vs his stack? Cause you can't really float often enough, especially if the guy is going to CB a lot postflop. Do you assume be ahead vs his range which is opening?

      As played
      Flop: Can't really fold, especially when you called preflop cause this is one of the boards where we should fight back. But is it worth to do that vs pot size? If we assuming that he is CBetting with his whole range this amount:

      Board: 3:diamond: 5:spade: 2:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    43.59%  37.30%   6.28% { 44+, A8s+, K9s+, QTs+, JTs, ATo+, KJo+, QJo }
      UTG+1  56.41%  50.13%   6.28% { AsQh }

      but would he do that? What about postflop play of his so far?

      As played
      Turn: What's the purpose of the raise?

      As played
      River: Not much to comment.

      Best Regards.

      Preflop:I think that I can dominate lots of his hand (AJ,ATAxs,KQ,QJ,QT).If I hit tpgk, I may win his stake a lot of time.(play fit/fold)
      because it's zoom poker, I have no much read on him.
      Flop:he's flop CB is 100%(2)
      so is it better to fold, or semibluff raise?

      Turn:I think it's a value raise

      MP2 60.25% AsQh
      MP3 39.75% KK+,QQ, 55, AQ, KQ, KsJs, QJ, KsTs,QT, JsTs
      I'm a bit favor against his calling range, maybe calling down as bluff catcher is better...

      Against 100% CB I'd just float the flop and reevaluate the turn. But as played the turn doesn't make sense to raise cause you ain't getting called from a lot worse, you just kicking out weaker hands and don't even allow him 3barrel with worse or hero-call on the river vs you with something like TT/JJ.

      can I ask about my flatting preflop is fine?
      it's a bit pity It's a pity folding this hand.
      or should I turn my hand into bluff 3betting preflop?

      If you are calling preflop then you have to expect him playing fit/Fold postflop and of course we often have to expect that we are ahead vs his opening range from the MP. Try to put some ranges into equilab and see against what you are ahead.

      For the given equities you pasted we can still Call while implied odds come also in handy here. Although would also depend how good you are postflop and especially understanding ranges and reading the board which does hit opponent.
