      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.04, Hero raises to $0.10, fold, BTN calls $0.06

      Button does a min raise, so i thought he doesn't have anything good, hence 3bet of 10cents which he called.

      FLOP ($0.22) J:heart: T:spade: 5:diamond:

      checked coz he had position, btn raised I thought he wouldn't have hit anything hence re - raised him and called his all - in coz I still thought he has a weaker hand.


      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.61, BTN raises to $1.17 (AI), Hero calls $0.56

      TURN ($2.56) J:heart: T:spade: 5:diamond: Q:heart:

      Hero shows A:spade: Q:club:

      BTN shows J:diamond: K:heart:
      (Pre 39%, Flop 66.3%, Turn 20.5%)

      Hi there,

      Preflop raise at least 16 cents, maybe more: he just min-raised, plus we gonna play OOP postflop.

      Flop: by check-raising we are overplaying our hand. I think we should have just c-betted here.

      Why did you think that he wouldn't have hit anything? What do you put him on? Is he stealing only with queens or higher or what? :)

      At this spot, once we are raised, no matter how it happened, I fold.

      It's good that you're trying to think of what your opponent might have...but also don't forget that you yourself have only a gutshot and overcards! It's not the situation where we want to play for stacks. (but again, BU will hit this board often, so think more carefully)

      Best,

      German

      I wouldn't even Cbet. KQ, AJ, AT, KJ, KT calls. Other than that we beat all non paired cards anyway and he won't simply start bluffing in a 3bet pot.

      He'll fold pocket pairs and if I assume he calls pre with 99-66 then thats 24 combos that fold, TT,JJ,55 are 18 that don't and KQ, KJ, KT, AJ, AT don't and thats 60 combos. He can also have JT. So Cbet to fold out only 24 combos out of so many that call or raise, don't think its worth a cbet.

      Hello,

      I'd definitely 3bet here bigger - $0.16-$0.18.

      So what weaker hands do you think he could bet like that on the flop?
      As maheepsangari said, I wouldn't even cbet here, since his calling range hits this board pretty well here.

      Best,

      Your math is a bit off, no? TT,JJ,55 is definitely not 18 combos, but rather 9, and it seems to me that KQ, KJ, KT, AJ, AT is not 60 either, I got 54 :)

      ...not like it changes anything :D

      Yeah sorry for calculation error. TT, JJ, 55 will be 9 as 3 each and KQ, KJ, KT, AJ, AT will be 64, i didn't properly discount combinations that aren't possible cause of the board and the cards we are holding.
