      BTN showed 2 J and lost (-$3.02 net)


      stats is 65/28/128.
      I made this decision because of his stack.
      When villain have regular stack, should I call/call/call because one card str is obvious and FD is already completed?

      I think preflop is easy 3bet, 88 is too strong to his range and with this stack he will ship probably A2 and similar hands.

      Hello Gonchan,

      Preflop: Against his stack and looseness I guess we could easily even 3bet for value vs the min-raise.

      As played
      Flop: I'd just fold it here cause we have just a GS and it's not even clean cause the guy could have FD himself or even better SD. Very bad board to continue cause even if he doesn't have a made hand right now he will definitely have decent equity vs us.

      As played
      Turn: Check/Shove vs his stack.

      Best Regards.

      Can you explain, why c/r is better than bet there? I myself rarely c/r turns, because I don't know when its good.

      I think he might often cbh and there might be more scare cards on river.

      Cause that's the line what hero took? :) Betting is also fine if you assume he is going to Check behind but I assume that such a guy could still even Bet the turn as well even with FD the same size as he made and then we can just ship it.
