      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: 110.85 BB
      UTG: 120.1 BB
      MP: 118.3 BB
      Hero (CO): 158.7 BB
      BTN: 130.35 BB
      SB: 136 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:diamond: T:diamond:

      UTG raises to 3 BB, fold, Hero calls 3 BB, fold, fold, BB calls 2 BB

      Flop: (9.5 BB, 3 players) 9:heart: J:diamond: 8:spade:
      BB checks, UTG bets 5 BB, Hero calls 5 BB, BB calls 5 BB

      Turn: (24.5 BB, 3 players) 2:spade:
      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets 18.35 BB, BB calls 18.35 BB, fold

      River: (61.2 BB, 2 players) K:heart:
      BB checks, Hero bets 45.9 BB, BB raises to 84.5 BB, Hero calls 38.6 BB

      BB shows K:diamond: J:spade: (Two Pair, Kings and Jacks) (Pre 60%, Flop 4%, Turn 0%)
      Hero shows Q:diamond: T:diamond: (Straight, King High) (Pre 40%, Flop 96%, Turn 100%)
      Hero wins 218.7 BB

      UTG 100 hands, VP 22, PFR 19
      BB VP22 PFR 4, 22 hands

      Is calling flop ok? I wanted bb to get involved, and hoped he will raise with set or two pair. Maybe is better raise because scare card might come like A, or T,Q,7?

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: calling is fine with fish behind but vs UTG tighter opening range I don't like it as much (esp with 3-betters behind us).

      Postflop: I like how you played here. Calling flop and then betting turn (and size is fine).

      On the river I'd probably bet smaller because we still want JT/QJ to call.
