      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with J :spade: 6 :spade:
      3 folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.40, SB calls $0.30

      River: ($3.00) 8 :heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      I am ashamed of my turn bet because it makes no sense as no worse calls me. I am actually surprised to see me bet there ?( must have been a very old hand.

      What I wanted to know about this hand though – do you agree with the preflop raise here? Seems pretty OK, especially given the fact that villain folds to cBets often, as we even have somewhat decent equity vs a potential range:


             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    41.18%  40.17%   1.00% { J6s }
      MP3    58.82%  57.82%   1.00% { TT-22, AJs-A2s, K6s+, Q6s+, J7s+, T7s+, 97s+, 86s+, 75s+, 64s+, 54s, AJo-A2o, K8o+, Q8o+, J9o+, T9o, 98o, 87o }


      Could be opening even much wider in this spot, I would imagine. Would you even agree with opening something like 65o, 75o, and forgive me for asking, maybe even any two suited cards?

      Hi,

      checking back seems better option, since J6s is not really ahead his completing range and unless you´re willing to fire 3 barrels it is better just to take your free flop.

      I think betting second pair for value is fine, since he may always c/c with worse cards, you can then take your free showdown and also you´re protecting your hand against some random range (for example A8 might easily c/c flop, c/f turn)

      Could be opening even much wider in this spot, I would imagine. Would you even agree with opening something like 65o, 75o, and forgive me for asking, maybe even any two suited cards?

      - don´t think you show profit raising worse hands against player who would not really fold postflop. I would isolate that spot around 35-40% that does not include hands like 65, 75, J6 or 83s


      best regards,

      But the guy does fold to cBets postflop. At least until now it does not seem that he is a calling station at all.

      May Veriz give me advice about this preflop decision? I'm pretty sure he has told me before that I may even go wider here. Although I am not 100% sure.

      Hi, if he does not fold to c-bets then I don´t really see any reason why you should isolate him J6s, once you do that then you should c-bet flop without no equity and barreling also on blank turns
