      Hi there,

      Since the board got really bad on the turn I decided to give it up. He bets and I think that I´m standing against lots of straights, 2 pairs and only a few TPs or worse.

      Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      MP2: $5.40 (108 bb)
      MP3: $3.04 (60.8 bb) 25/16/7,7 after 89 hands
      CO: $2 (40 bb)
      BTN: $5.50 (110 bb)
      SB: $11.25 (225 bb)
      BB: $4.74 (94.8 bb)
      UTG+1: $10.61 (212.2 bb)
      UTG+2: $5 (100 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $2.20 (44 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q A
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.25, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.25, 5 folds

      Flop: ($0.62) 8 Q J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.38, MP3 calls $0.38

      Turn: ($1.38) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $1.10, Hero folds

      $1.38 pot ($0.06 rake)
      Final Board: 8 Q J 9
      MP3 mucked and won $1.32 ($0.69 net)
      Hero mucked Q A and lost (-$0.63 net)

      I think versus sane players, you can turn your pair into a bluff and force two pairs to fold. This only works against people who relatively have a low WTSD (<25%) and more tendency to fold than to call

      I think I like putting pressure on people more than always c/f. We can just bet $1 and fold to a raise because we are always up against a straight then
