      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with K :club: A :diamond:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, SB raises to $1, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.80

      Flop: ($2.10) Q :club: K :spade: 2 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $2.10, Hero calls $2.10

      Turn: ($6.30) 2 :heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $6.30, Hero raises to $10.07, SB calls $3.77

      River: ($26.44) 9 :heart: (2 players)


      Seemed to me that I was against 2pair+ at river so I decided to check, the guy ended up showing me 4 :diamond: 4 :heart:

      I make the raise on turn since I feel I can get value from Kx hands that raise preflop, once he is calling though I am checking the turn, even considering folding if he raises big.

      What is your take on this?

      Not many hands on player but looks aggro and a bit fishy.

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: 100 bb deep we can 4-bet here but we are a bit deeper so calling is fine.

      Postflop: As played I doubt anyone would cbet pot on such a dry board so I actually like your line. If he bet 1/2 pot 3 streets I would be more worried.

      Well played !

      Hello,

      Is minraising your standard sizing from BU?
      As played, I think we can 4bet and go broke here.

      On the flop calling is fine.

      On the turn I would rather fold here.
      Villain show a lot of strength here and I really doubt that he will end up bluffing like this enough to justify a shove.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hey guys, thank you for your replies.

      @Bogdan: I found his cbet line very weird, almost like he wanted to push me out of the pot. I think that is more likely why I am c/raising turn there.

      @Kymupa: Yes minraising is my standard line from the button, ive seen Emmanuel doing this on micros zoom and seems to work pretty good so far.

      @Both: Against this player should I make a general note regarding how the hand was player, i.e his cbet sizing?


      Thank you both.

      We can make a note if you want but I don't think these spots will come up often.

      Once you see someone pot like this in a 3-bet pot on a dry board it should trigger the BS alarm b ecause they rarely ever have it. I can't see him playing QQ/KK/QK ever like this. Not even AA or 22.

      As far as min raising on the BTN I do recommend it as well for Zoom and during my Zoom coachings at 2-10 NL we min raise button with a HIGH success rate.
