      I tried using the converter but it aint working after I clicking the convert it shows what the actions were but it does`not show the board I dont know why...Anyways I wanted to ask some opinion about this hand Im quite new I think the bet on the flop is standard, as well as the turn(but Im not pretty sure), on the river I decided to bet bec the only hand that could beat me is QQ+, set any two pairs and a straight and opponent did not show much strength here.. Now I thought of checking but I think if I check that he would bet and I might be left w no other options but to call here.. So I guess did I play it conservatively specially on the turn it did not make flush draw or any heavy draw card. Should I just pot control on the turn instead of protecting my hand? did I overplayed this hand? or is it just standard and I cant do anything about it??

      Guys please I need help on this I need to know what Ive done wrong here..any advise is highly appreciated..

      Hello windar021,

      Here is some help for you how to convert hands and post them in correct format: link. Or simply use

      About your play it's mainly the question against what kind of opponent we are against there. There actually appeared a lot of 2pair combos and of course even straights/sets are possible which have us beat. So therefore you have to watch out there.

      There are few options you could pick here, either we block-bet/Fold the river like 40 cents cause we know that he ain't raising with worse or we Check/Fold it. Though I wouldn't say that shoving directly all-in is totally off, though then you would also need to know that he is very loose and bad player who is willing to pay you off with a lot worse hands.

      Best Regards.

      Ok so by block/betting the flop like .40 then lets say he went all in would you consider folding there w .50 left on his stack and the pot is maybe 1.50?? I dont have reads on this opponent to be honest.. What about the turn bet do you think its standard?? bec another option that Im thinking since the only draw is a possible straight draw there I should just pot control on the turn.. I didnt bec I was thinking that if villain will bet then I will put him on a wide range there including floats and will still call it.. Do you think its the bet size that might have error here on the river?? maybe its too big... God i got a lot of question I just really want to learn.. and BTW already started my NL beginners course.. thanks for analyzing btw..

      block bet is not .40 . Its purpose is to keep pot small and prevent your oponent from raising. So I think it should be around 1/3 and 1/2 the pot. I would block-bet the turn something like 22 cents. so ITs bigger then my flop bet but not big enaugh.

      But my question is? if blockbet on turn then how to play river? check/fold? bet/folt? maybe blockbet/fold.?

      Balltas pointed it out pretty clearly. :) Though I'd still Bet the turn a bit bigger like 40 cents if we planning to do that, he may still worse hands which may call you.

      Well, about what can I say. :D I don't know what you are doing, as you see worked for me. :P Seems like you did something wrong. There isn't anything difficult just convert the hand and then press on 2+2 format and paste it here as I did.
