      Results:
      $3.59 pot ($0.13 rake)
      Final Board: J 7 K Q 8
      Hero showed J J and won $3.46 ($1.70 net)
      BB showed 4 K and lost (-$1.76 net)


      Both villains are unknown.

      PF: I can argue for a value 3-bet. But assuming CO is competent, I don't think he will call a weaker hand OOP. It sucks to fold to 4-bet though.

      Flop: Raise BB donk bet for value. His range includes some 7x, Kx, (Ax, mid-suited flush draws), and some straight draws like QT & AT which almost his entire range will call my raise.

      Turn: AT got there, but Q can also improve his hand to 2p or he might have a pair+gutshot now. I bet a size that will leave him a little less than 1/2 pot to call on the River. I'm shoving River no matter what, he can still call me w 2p, 77s and even Kx

      Hi,

      PF: He needs to cal Jx hands or worse. Like AJ, ATs. If he doesn't, I can't see why we would want to 3bet.

      You played postflop really good, imo. The guy was a total fish, I expected him to show at least KJ, but anyways :f_biggrin:

      Raise flop bigger for value. There is good amounts of straight and flush draws and pairs you can get value from. Something like 50 to 60 cents looks good.

      The rest of the play is good.

      I think he wanted to keep marginal kings in the hand, but protection is a good idea, I agree.

      Why do you raise 50-60 cents though? :f_confused: It's a bit over the top. The pot raise would be 49.

      Hi.

      Pf should be a 3bet by default given positions. Nl2 players make the mistake of calling too much so exploit that. If u say they arent calling much (u assumed he is competent based on? I think our basic assumption shuld be that everyone is a beginner at nl2) then u should be 3bet bluffing him a ton.

      Rest of hand is fine but ill raise flop to 40c
