      UTG: $5.19 - VPIP: 81, PFR: 42, 3B: 25, AF: 7.0, Hands: 43
      CO: $0.79 - VPIP: 67, PFR: 2, 3B: 5, AF: 0.8, Hands: 49
      Hero (BTN): $2.07 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 20, 3B: 8, AF: 4.2, Hands: 14763
      SB: $0.89 - VPIP: 10, PFR: 10, 3B: 0, AF: 1.0, Hands: 10
      BB: $1.91 - VPIP: 11, PFR: 10, 3B: 0, AF: 0.5, Hands: 83

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is BTN with A :spade: K :diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.04, CO calls $0.04, Hero raises to $0.18, 2 folds, UTG calls $0.14, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.43) 9 :diamond: Q :spade: T :diamond: (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.24, Hero calls $0.24

      Turn: ($0.91) K :club: (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.70, Hero calls $0.70

      River: ($2.31) 2 :diamond: (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40

      Flop call is okay given the number of our outs.

      There's no call on the turn, is there? Everything at all that might bet two streets here has like 2P or a straight.

      Basically, all we can do is bluff-catch, but this board hits his range so badly.

      As played, once we called, there's no fold either, yup?

      Thanks.

      hi.

      fold flop for sure. that board smashes his calling range. he has so many JX TX QX type of hands, pair + draw like QJ or KQ. Many of your outs are dead.

      NOw on the turn even when you hit the King the straight is out there. i would just fold. but the main thing is the flop mistake.

      Oh true! I knew that it's a fold here, but I kept thinking about the turn, when actually we just fold the flop.

      I didn't discount my outs...and I can discount like all of them :f_biggrin:

      Horrible hand, gave me a real headache thinking about it -- so many betters hands are possible here.

      Thanks, mbml.
