      PokerStars Zoom No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (6 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

      Button ($2.71)
      SB ($0.75)
      BB ($0.34)
      UTG ($1.01)
      MP ($1.69)
      HollyMichelle (CO) ($2.08)

      Preflop: HollyMichelle is CO with 7, 7
      UTG calls $0.02, MP calls $0.02, HollyMichelle calls $0.02, 2 folds, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.09) Q, 4, 7 (4 players)
      1 fold, UTG checks, MP bets $0.06, HollyMichelle calls $0.06, UTG calls $0.06

      Turn: ($0.27) J (3 players)
      UTG checks, MP bets $0.10, HollyMichelle calls $0.10, UTG calls $0.10

      River: ($0.57) K (3 players)
      UTG checks, MP checks, HollyMichelle checks

      Total pot: $0.57 | Rake: $0.02

      Results below:

      UTG had 9, A (flush, Ace high).
      MP didn't show
      HollyMichelle had 7, 7 (three of a kind, sevens).
      Outcome: UTG won $0.55


      Not sure what the best line is here from start to finish. I guess I flat to set mine and we hit our set but with 3 flush cards and 2 opponents I opt to check it.

      How bad is that?


      Thanks,
      Gary

      Hello,

      Preflop I like overlimping.

      On the flop I prefer raising for value here.

      As played on the flop, I'd definitely raise the turn.

      Checking the river is fine. I doubt that worse hands are calling here, neither better are folding.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Ah ok, thank you very much indeed. How much are betting on the flop if we elect to bet?

      And how much are you raising the turn to?

      Hey Gary.

      Why did you choose to flat call the flop/turn?

      Hey Patrick,

      The flat on the flop is basically because I was afraid of raising into 2 players on such a board. I guess I was hoping for the board to pair and make the boat.

      Likewise for the turn flat also. I'm not really great with post flop play as you can see :D

      You say in other posts "ah its nl2 they will call worse" so if its NL2, why do you not think they will call you with top pair, or hands with a good flush draw?

      I guess I'm always afraid of getting slow rolled here and instead of playing for pots I like to take the easy way out. Time to change that and thank you for these explaination and for making me think!
