      BTN: $4.71 (94.2 bb)
      SB: $10.84 (216.8 bb)
      Hero (BB): $10.17 (203.4 bb)
      UTG: $2.10 (42 bb)
      MP: $8.63 (172.6 bb)
      CO: $7.11 (142.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J T
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.10, SB calls $0.08, Hero calls $0.05

      Flop: ($0.30) K 2 Q (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.30) 9 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.25, Hero calls $0.25, BTN folds

      River: ($0.80) 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.75, Hero calls $0.75

      $2.30 pot ($0.10 rake)
      Final Board: K 2 Q 9 5
      SB showed 2 2 and lost (-$1.10 net)
      Hero showed J T and won $2.20 ($1.10 net)

      PF: I call in BB because I have 5:1 odds and I'm playing IP against SB with which we are 200bbs deep.

      Flop: Don't see any value in betting so I x to hope for free turn card

      Turn: Turned straight w possible flush on board. Villain could have Kx, Qx, slowplayed set, flush, draws like GS and Ax hands w A of clubs.

      River: He bets big and I got scared of the flush and just call. I think I can raise 3-4x and fold to 3bet.

      Upset w myself after I look at it now. Think I missed a lot of value in this hand. Need to really stop being wary of flushes. As played, I think raising turn and b/f river will give me max value?

      Flop: looks good, we are inbetween PFR and SB and we could bet as a semibluff but then we need to fold to a raise so I don't mind checking.

      Turn: SB is the one that can have a hand here from 22, 99, KQ, to Kx, to club draws or flushes. However considering how deep we are and how hidden our hand is we can raise for value here (if he reraises big we can even fold 200 bb deep). By not raising we lose value against a big part of his range.

      River: If we didn't raise the turn we can definitely raise the river for value, especially on this blank card. And yes we can raise/fold versus deep, passive, villains.

      Hi Coach,

      I agree I lost lots of value here in this case especially w his set of 22s. Thanks for the analysis
