      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Known players:
      CO (Hero):
      $1.14
      BU:
      $3.95
      SB:
      $4.20
      BB:
      $2.30
      UTG2:
      $3.52
      MP1:
      $7.60
      MP2:
      $4.97
      MP3:
      $4.18

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, J.
      3 folds, MP3 calls $0.04, Hero calls $0.04, BU folds, SB calls $0.02, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.16) 3, 8, 2 (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, MP3 bets $0.08, Hero raises to $0.16, SB folds, BB folds, MP3 calls $0.08.

      Turn: ($0.48) 4 (2 players)
      MP3 bets $0.08, Hero raises to $0.24, MP3 raises to $3.98, Hero calls $0.70.

      The way he had played it made me think he was on a flush draw. Should this 3-bet make me worry about a stronger hand?

      River: ($5.4) 7 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $5.4.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows high card king(Ks Js).

      MP3 shows two pairs, fours and twos(2c 4s).

      MP3 wins with two pairs, fours and twos(2c 4s).

      I have posted a similar hand earlier, where I was in early position with a better hand. So how should I have played this one?

      Hello Phoenix,


      I strongly dislike your preflop play, I prefer to raise it preflop as you saw plenty of times in my coachings. Limping is very weak move as you are most likely going to limp/call if you get raised which is pretty marginal.

      If we really have a good hand on the Flop, why do you only minraise there?
      Isn't far better to raise it bigger to utilize our fold equity then?

      As played I also dislike your turnraise, I just call because our equity is severely low and I do not think your raising sizes is going to make him fold anything

      Best regards,
      Gerv
