      First of all: I know I played this terribly after the flop, but I just wanted some comments about thought process!

      Villain is playing 16/13 100% cbet inf. agg (only 110 hands though).

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($3.15)
      BB ($2.65)
      UTG ($10.15)
      UTG+1 ($2.85)
      UTG+2 ($2.57)
      MP1 ($12.63)
      CO ($5.69)
      Hero ($12.23)

      Dealt to Hero Q:heart: J:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, MP1 raises to $0.30, fold, Hero calls $0.30, fold, fold

      FLOP ($0.75) T:heart: 6:spade: K:club:

      MP1 bets $0.50, Hero raises to $1.95, MP1 raises to $4.10, Hero calls $2.15

      Here, I semi-bluff with my OESD since he's cbetting this flop nearly all the time. He min raises giving me odds of 3:1, so I call here thinking his range is KK, AA, TT, 66, KT and maybe AK vs which I have 27.43% equity.

      Q1. Is my re-raise sizing OK here?

      TURN ($8.95) T:heart: 6:spade: K:club: 5:club:

      MP1 bets $4.30, Hero calls $4.30

      Here he bets less than half pot giving me odds of 3:1. Obviously I would need >25% equity to continue so I must fold here.

      Since he effectively is committing here can I also take the remaining $4 as implied? This gives me 4:1 and required 20% equity whereas I have about 17% (so a fold still).

      Q2. Is it right to take implied odds in this way in this spot? Is he ever folding river when the A or 9 comes? I think not.

      Either way, bad call of course.

      RIVER ($17.55) T:heart: 6:spade: K:club: 5:club: 2:spade:

      MP1 bets $3.93 (AI), Hero folds

      MP1 wins $16.68

      Hello ains21,

      Raise/Calling the flop is still fine for the given odds but I don't really like your call on the turn, you don't have implied odds there and should rather fold the hand.

      Best Regards.
