      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $6.31
      SB (Hero):
      $2.05
      BB:
      $0.76
      MP3:

      CO:
      $2.00


      Preflop: Hero is SB with 7, 6.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, BB calls $0.04.

      Flop: ($0.12) K, K, 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.06, BB calls $0.06.

      Turn: ($0.24) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.17, BB raises to $0.64, Hero calls $0.47.

      River: ($1.52) J (2 players)


      Final Pot: $1.52.

      Results follow:

      BB shows a pair of kings(7s Ah).
      Hero shows two pairs, kings and sixes(7c 6c).

      Hero wins with two pairs, kings and sixes(7c 6c).


      I don't have much information about the player on BB, he played 7 hands: VPIP 57, PFR 29

      I was reviewing my session and I don't like the call I made here, it's mathematically wrong. But at the same time, I felt like the story, he was telling me, was wrong. I could put him on a semi-bluff (flush draw) or a bluff, but surely not on kings (why make me fold now when he can get some more value on the river?) or a pocket (why didn't he re-raise me pre-flop?). Could someone judge my decision? :)


      PS could someone please tell me what kind of HUD should I use for cash games/SnG's/MTT's (or show me where can I read about it). Is there a difference between a cash game HUD and a SnG/MTT HUD?

      Hi. A few things to point out here

      1) What are you trying to achieve with the Turn bet? Worse hands aren't calling, and you aren't folding out too many better hands IMO, besides stuff like 88 and 99.
      2) A turn raise is usually a hand that is 2pairs or better. I think this guy usually has KX here. Easy fold

      On micro stakes is popular to float. With the turn bet I want to understand where am I standing, ahead or behind.
