      €0.01/€0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP1 = (€1.69)
      MP2 = (€1.85)
      MP3 = (€1.40)
      CO = (€3.39)
      BU = (€2.03)
      SB (Hero) = (€3.82)
      BB = (€2.67)
      UTG2 = (€1.80)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K, A.
      2 folds, MP2 calls €0.02, MP3 raises to €0.06, 2 folds, Hero raises to €0.30, 2 folds, MP3 calls €0.24.

      Flop: (€0.64) 6, T, 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets €0.42, MP3 raises to €0.88, Hero calls €0.46.

      Turn: (€2.4) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets €0.22, Hero calls €0.22.

      River: (€2.84) K (2 players)

      Final Pot: €2.84.


      MP3 shows three of a kind, tens(T T).
      Hero shows a pair of kings(K A).

      MP3 wins with three of a kind, tens(T T).

      Villain is short stacked so folding on the flop seems a little too weak with the nut flush draw and a backdoor straight to me. How about shoving after his reraise ?

      If you decide to play this after flop, you should shove it.

      His minraise just looks too strong there, so you're probably facing a set there. You can't make it to fold, so giving this hand up isn't that bad. You got only 8 outs there (all the remaining diamonds except 6).

      But this depends on your opponent, if they like to do a minraise on this low board, then jam it.

      Extra things to think: With this line, What do you think that your equity is against his range, what do you think his raising range on flop is?

      against shortstack shove would be best option. I think you don´t have any fold equity but with overcards and nut flushdraw you generally have 45-55% equity that is enough to play for stacks

      best regards,
