      Prima No-Limit Hold'em, €0.20 BB (5 handed)

      Button (€4.45)
      Hero (SB) (€24.77)
      BB (€47.93)
      UTG (€20)
      MP (€22.53)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, Q
      1 fold, MP bets €0.60, Button calls €0.60, Hero raises €2.40, 1 fold, MP calls €1.90, Button calls €1.90

      Flop: (€7.70) 3, 7, 8 (3 players)
      Hero bets €3.70, MP calls €3.70, Button calls €1.95 (All-In)

      Turn: (€17.05) 9 (3 players, 1 all-in)
      Hero bets €16.50, MP calls €16.33 (All-In)

      River: (€49.71) J (3 players, 2 all-in)

      Total pot: €49.71

      Anon table.
      BTN 70/9
      MP 25/21

      Turn? I thought he would have raised me on the flop with 2pair+, except flushes, so he could call me with T:sT, J:sJ, which are definitely in his range, and I didnt want to see a river scarecard, where he could get away from his hand.

      I don't really think MP should have a wide speculative range here because the shortstacker fish may just shove the remaining 2 euro in. So mostly AQ, sometimes KQs/AJs and mostly mid pairs.

      Turn play is mostly a question of whether he's calling down JJ/TT. I agree that he should raise 77/88 on the Flop quite often so we are mostly looking at AsJs and 99.

      He might even have something like AsQh though. Still I don't think I want to give a free card and there might be some sort of value in a shove (though it's mostly just protection + no other good alternative)

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Well yeah, difficult to just Check/Fold the turn either whilst we also have Q. :D Guess I would also end up shipping there for value, though we can't exclude from his range nutted hands as KK/AA either. :(

      Best Regards.
