      Play hand

      €0.05/€0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      BB = (€7.80)
      MP3 = (€7.83)
      CO = (€6.73)
      BU (Hero) = (€37.14)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, J.
      MP3 calls €0.10, CO calls €0.10, Hero raises to €0.60, 2 folds, MP3 calls €0.50, CO calls €0.50.

      Flop: (€1.95) T, 4, J (3 players)
      MP3 checks, CO checks, Hero bets €1.20, MP3 folds, CO calls €1.20.

      Turn: (€4.35) 8 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks.

      River: (€4.35) 4 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets €1.40, CO raises to €4.93, Hero calls €3.53.

      Final Pot: €14.21.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, jacks and fours(Q J).
      CO shows a full-house, fours full of eights(4 8).

      CO wins with a full-house, fours full of eights(4 8).

      Don't know what to think of that line from villain. How can a river check/push after I check back on the turn ever be for value ?

      Hi Elda,

      Preflop: Isolation on the BTN is fine and size is good too.

      Flop: Cbet for value is good (and protection) but I'd make it bigger.

      Turn: Why are we checking back turn here against a fishy player? There's a LOT of value in a bet and like this we just give him free cards.

      River: It's possible that villain is bluffing however most fish would bet to bluff the river rather than ck/raise.

      It's true that our small bet may induce and we may have to call but we are just guessing here since we know nothing about our opponent.

      Considering his stack size I can see myself betting bigger on the flop and jamming turn (he only has 60 BB on flop).
