      Hi, all sorry for the stack sizes not displaying correctly, we where both slight deep I prolly had $ 5.23 him about the same...

      Anyways my problem is not really the mistakes I did here or well I guess it is, but however I seem to be doing such lines quite oftent, completely not thinking about what he calls me with..
      Cbetting with only a bluff catcher, on a very drawy board. if he bluffed me here well nice bluff :P anyways I think he represents JJ very well, he could ofcause have called with broadways which I'm easily dominated by...

      Anyways...

      Preflop:
      Decided to squeze here oR seemed weak, and a few tight ppl was interested in the pot, but showed weakness by calling might be low PP's made my hand look strong...

      Flop:
      Wasn't to happy about hitting my pair here, but it also domniates weaker pp's which could call me preflop, so continued my story, but with to few outs :P

      Turn:
      Well here I think is my biggest mistake, if he has a hand here, which he represent very strongly, it just got better :f_cry:
      Now why on earth did I cbet here, it just got worse....

      should c/f and let him have it.... (costly but perhaps learnfull I hope)

      These things usually happen after I've had a rather good run then loosing to a shorty with best hand preflop so I assume I'm tilting here. Please help me correct it...

      Not even sure it was a smart fold as the odds are quite good now :f_confused:

      Villain: (even his calling range is tight :P )

      There is nothing inherently wrong with cbetting here. You have a pair and may get called by worse. My preferred line is check/call. Opponent can bet a lot wider than he can call, and you have a solid bluff-catcher. It's true the board is drawy, but you have a gutshot yourself, and you have back-door protection vs club-flushes.

      Your turn bluff is ok, but a lot of your opponents flop-call range has pairs/2pair/flush-draws that he may get stubborn with. He can also actually have a Jx. Check/fold is fine, and lower variance too.

      hmm wasn't exactly the answer I expected :P

      but I'm happy it wasn't all bad :)

      However it's still a bet fold right? I need like 23% equity and I only think I have 10ish here?

      Pretty clear bet fold. He nearly always has a jack. In which case you are drawing dead to a J which hits river 6% of the time.
