      Final Board: J J 7 T 9
      BB showed K K and won $1.32 ($0.64 net)
      Hero mucked 4 A and lost (-$0.68 net)

      Total spew :f_cry:

      PF: Know A4s is not a good hand to be w/o initiative, itchy hands still decided to call because "he min3-bets" and "I have position".

      Flop: Decided to get creative and float, and then bluff on any Club, 8,9,T,Q,K,A.

      Turn: Really good card to bluff but suddenly I got all p*ssy and only raised 2.8x wtf??

      River: Again really good card to bluff, and again I got all p*ssy and gave up. Told myself "People on NL2 won't fold". So basically I contradicted myself throughout the whole hand. :f_mad:

      Is it okay to call min3-bet w almost any 2 cards that you open w?

      It is certainly ok to call the small 3B especially given stack sizes.
      But then play cautiously post flop. Remember that he gave you good odds to call to hit something so there is nothing wrong in calling pre and folding when you don't hit.

      Hello cheekopeh,

      Just take the odds and that's it. Once we don't hit then avoid overplaying your hand, especially with such a spew-play as you did. Doesn't really make sense to make such a raise on the turn which rarely will have fold equity.

      Best Regards.
