      I would bet $1 on flop, because the board is a bit drawy.
      On the turn it's an easy push.
      As you said, he doesn't have the right to call you here, that's completely right. Villain only got 4 outs, so on the long term this is absolutely +EV for you.

      Besides that, you can easily go broke with 2 pair, this is just a nasty suck-out, so nice hand.

      Hello punta,

      the hand is generally fine, but I'd like to focus on some small things you might not be spotting:

      1) You're at sb and two oponents limped. Normaly it'd be 4bb+1/limp = 6bb, here you can easily go for 6.5 (since .5 has already been posted) = $0.65.

      2) On the flop it's better to valuebet more, pot I think - you're ahead here until against a set but don't want some chaser to hit his fd, do you?

      3) Easy push on the turn.

      And about the bad beat you surely have suffered if you're posting this hand ;) - you did well. Play 1000 hands like this and you'll be a rich man :) .

      Thanks Guys - not sure about being a rich man 098799 :D

      I use a script now and sometimes it does put funny amounts in like the $0.55.
      I find using a script be a lot easier when playing 8 tables at a time on a poxy small monitor. I have it set and 4BB + 1bb per limper and then 2/3 of the pot on the flop.

      Thanks again and GL.

      Oh, like, BetPot? I also use it. But there are situation in which you need to correct the amount by manually adding or removing some bets. No big deal, getting a bit complicated while 20-tabling but still managable ;) .

      Good luck then and raise in limits fast :) .
