      €0.05/€0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:

      MP3 = (€5.37)
      CO (Hero) = (€10.23)
      BU = (€5.49)
      SB = (€11.22)
      BB = (€3.38)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q, Q.
      MP2 raises to €0.30, MP3 folds, Hero raises to €0.90, 3 folds, MP2 calls €0.60.

      Flop: (€1.95) J, T, 3 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets €1.10, MP2 calls €1.10.

      Turn: (€4.15) 4 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets €1.90, MP2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: €4.15.


      Alright so that's more of a hypthetical hand analysis I'm asking for because I get in this spot a lot.

      Assuming opponent is unknown, how should I react to a small c/r on the turn ? The turn card is pretty much a blank and we're probably still good on the turn if we were good otf.

      What if we call and he shoves the river on a blank like 6 ? What kind of odds would we need then ?

      Hi Elda,

      Preflop: looks good.

      Flop/turn: looks good.

      As far as your question goes most players will slow play sets on that flop so a turn ck/raise would be strong. I'd bet/fold without information.

      If they call turn and donk/shoves river they have a similar range perhaps with more Jx hands in the range like Jx. A shove on river would be pot size so you get ~33% odds to call so I'd call more often.
