      Party, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      SB: $10.93 (109.3 bb)
      Hero (CO): $13.87 (138.7 bb)
      MP: $11.91 (119.1 bb)
      UTG: $10.91 (109.1 bb)
      BB: $10.15 (101.5 bb)
      BTN: $9.55 (95.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J 9
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, BTN folds, SB calls $0.85, BB folds, MP calls $0.60

      Flop: ($2.80) Q 2 8 (3 players)
      SB checks, MP checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($2.80) A (3 players)
      SB folds, MP checks, Hero bets $1.40, MP folds

      Results:
      $2.80 pot ($0.14 rake)
      Final Board: Q 2 8 A
      SB mucked and lost (-$0.90 net)
      Hero mucked J 9 and won $2.66 ($1.76 net)
      MP mucked and lost (-$0.90 net)


      I 3bet as MP had a high F to 3bet stat so I wanted to take down pot but I didnt take into account the calling station in SB.

      I'm nover betting the flop without a very strong hand. On turn SB just folds and leaves table and when MP checks to me I decide to take a stab at pot but the only cards that are folding are pocket pairs so if he has an Ace I am not representing much.

      Hey Kevin,

      Preflop: I'd prefer to have hands with more playability postflop if there is a chance to see a flop.

      Flop: As played I wouldn't cbet the flop vs two.

      Turn: Once both check again we can attempt a 1/2 steal here (which only has to work 33% of the time).

      Just to clarify, on the turn SB just folds. I don't think I would have taken a stab against two players.

      I agree about 3-betting with a stronger hand. I find there is more 3betting in NL10 and have been increasing my own 3betting as a result. I'm finding it tough to know when to fold to 3bets especially when I will be out of position post flop.

      Oh I thought that was a mistake in the converter.

      Even against two checking twice we can take a stab at times.
