      Turn: ($3.47, 2 players) T:spade:

      River: ($3.47, 2 players) 2:diamond:

      Hero shows T:heart: J:heart: (One Pair, Tens) (Pre 20%, Flop 42%, Turn 32%)
      MP shows K:diamond: K:club: (Three of a Kind, Kings) (Pre 80%, Flop 58%, Turn 68%)
      MP wins $3.35

      Preflop: This table was full of so many fish, and I was trying to play many weaker hands against them. This was maybe too weak to raise JTs from UTG, especially vs. a 3bet.

      Flop: When I hit monster draw, I raised, and since he was short-stacked, I called his shove.

      Hi Feverfew,

      Preflop: looks fine versus the min 3-bet although, as you said, if your table is full of fish we will get lots of calls so I just prefer to make it 3x. We just want to see a flop with some initiative.

      Postflop: We do have a monster draw but we forgot the action that happened preflop. Do you expect to have much fold equity versus the preflop raiser? Fold equity adds to the value of the hand, otherwise we just have a monster draw (which is still a flip vs a hand like AK).

      Also, considering we have another fish in the pot why not call and keep him in too?
