      PokerStars - $0.02 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG: $4.89
      Hero (UTG+1): $2.94
      MP: $3.99
      MP+1: $2.63
      CO: $1.71
      BTN: $2.00
      SB: $0.55
      BB: $4.17

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has Q:spade: Q:diamond:

      Note: Correct play. raise 4BB+1limp.


      UTG calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, fold, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.10, SB calls $0.09, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.34, 3 players) 5:club: K:heart: 4:club:

      Note: I Bet 50% of the pot to see if anyone have anything. With a higher card on the borde and two players that call preflop against a early caller I can asome that they have good hand? With $23 in the pot preflop don't SB have good pot odds for (23/9= 2.5) to call with worst hands? there by I having good chance with QQ? My mistake here is to call the reraise without any read on my opponent.


      SB checks, Hero bets $0.16, BTN raises to $0.48, fold, Hero calls $0.32

      Turn: ($1.30, 2 players) A:heart:

      Note: I check/fold on turn to not lose more money with two higher card on bord.


      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.93, fold

      BTN wins $1.25

      preflop: fine

      flop: i would cbet bigger to ~.22-.26 to protect vs fds/sds and then fold to a raise in this spot.

      what cards do you plan on x/calling on the turn when you bet/call on flop?

      I feel that I made a mistake by calling in this spot. I should first had bet higher so my opponent whould not have the odds to call with a draw and secoud if he still played I should just bet/fold with higher card on the bord.

      Hello mateuszrybinski,

      What's the reason for betting 1/2 pot size? I'd recommend taking a look at the beginner's articles again for the very basics how much to CB and why. Though if we do CB then should be Bet/Fold.

      Best Regards.
