      UTG raises to $0.06, fold, fold, MP+1 raises to $0.14, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.13, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.36, 2 players) 3:diamond: Q:spade: A:heart:

      MP+1 wins $2.78

      Preflop - i should have definitely raised
      flop - decided to slow play seeing as it was a good flop to do so. Quite surprised that MP decided not to contibet and so obviously i didnt put him on a hand like aces

      that's quite a disciplined call on the river. :D
      i mean we just HAVE to put him on aces, but i'm not sure if i would avoid donating my entire stack

      preflop is fine.

      I don't think we JUST HAVE to put him on aces, specially considering it's ZOOM, I would probably shove. Anyway it's just a cooler, it happens.

      And about preflop, it's fine.

      specially because it's zoom!
      what is he going to have there? AK? jacks if we're lucky

      yeah it's a cooler, but his line is sooo fishy there, maybe we can avoid it imo :D

      Well, ZOOM on NL2 tends to be a lil' fishy, I think AK or Jacks is not out of question at all, AJ is not and even kings can be considered, I've seen ppl do weird things on ZOOM.

      Hello bssjonny94,

      Preflop: You can't really 4bet here cause what worse hands pay you? You are rather isolating vs strong range mainly.

      As played
      Postflop: Tough to fold the river cause the guy could as well have JJ there. So I would also end up calling. :(

      Best Regards.
