      Lost 7 buy-ins today, ridiculous, game's rife with manic depressives today or something.
      Want to know if I'm playing these hands okay. This one is against someone who limps in utg, I had no idea what he could have here I was thinking something like A9/K9, I've seen him play a set before and he was much more passive with it. He was playing weird and I just wanted to shove him on the turn tbh, I doubt he raises the flop with a drawing hand like QT.

      i will not go all-in on the turn , i will just call because he showed some strenght when he min raise on the flop and bet small turn , i will also just call any river bet lower then pot bet. The problem with your push is that there are only A9 and KJ that you beat and there's few A9 combos,. also dunno how manny hands you have but a 30/20 don't open limp from utg then donk /raise the flop and bet the turn without a very good hand.

      Hi Sketchzr,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Why exactly did you want to shove him on the turn?

      He's line looks either like a monster or a weaker hand looking to block bet.

      So I'd make it 1.5 and take it from there.

      Player is pretty LAG, raises flop: 67 (3)

      should I have played it passively from the turn and let him do the betting?

      I wouldn't play it passive but I'd raise it smaller to give his weaker hands a chance to stay in the pot.

      Like in the other hand we don't want to isolate ourselves only against his good range (even though we beat some of it).

      Hi guys,

      Why do we min-raise his min-bet on the flop? :f_confused:

      Also, if we raised big, we wouldn't call his 3bet without the reads that he's aggro, would we? Even though it's so small.

      I like the smaller raise to keep his range wide. A min raise would be 2x but we made it 3x ;)

      And yes, we can't really raise big and call/shove over a 3-bet.
