      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      €0.05/€0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero) = (€12.98)
      MP1 = (€10.87)
      MP2 = (€12.48)
      MP3 = (€10.40)
      CO = (€7.52)
      BU = (€10.30)
      SB = (€8.95)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, A.
      3 folds, CO calls €0.10, BU folds, SB raises to €0.45, Hero calls €0.35, CO calls €0.35.

      Flop: (€1.35) 6, K, 9 (3 players)
      SB bets €0.80, Hero raises to €2.40, CO raises to €4.00, SB raises to €8.50, Hero raises to €12.53, CO calls €3.07.

      Turn: (€29.45) 7 (3 players)


      River: (€29.45) 8 (3 players)


      Final Pot: €29.45.


      Results:

      Hero shows a flush, ace high(J A).
      CO shows three of a kind, sixes(6 6).
      SB shows a pair of aces(A A).

      Hero wins with a flush, ace high(J A).



      So I cold-call the SB's raise with AJo IP, I expect myself to be ahead of his range here obviously.

      I 3-bet semi-bluff the flop but craziness happens.

      I shoved with the assumption that CO would call me, was that actually good ? It seems to me that I definitely had the odds to execute such a play.

      Well.. Opponents are playing for stacks here only with sets, never with overpairs in this case (if there were AxAh against you, then, but you block the ace. QxQh won't play this way).

      Against them you have this much equity:

      fi.pokerstrategy.com
      Table: 6hKh9h
      VO Win Tie
      CO 66.78% 66.78% 0.00% { 6d6s }
      SB 4.21% 4.21% 0.00% { AsAc }
      BB 29.01% 29.01% 0.00% { AhJs }

      And there could be other sets, too, like KK or 99. Of course when they start to jam it there you are having good odds to call, but bette to jam as you would have only some dimes behind you :p

      Hello elda420,

      Preflop: Already should ask if the calling idea is the best here. Might be better idea just to 3bet and take it down right here.

      As played
      Postflop: Overplaying your draw here cause you will be against very strong hands which go broke here. Therefore Raise/Broke is overplayed. Just call instead and keep weaker draws in the pot.

      Best Regards.
