      He could slowplay good hand from ep when limping with intention of limp/r preflop. I went for c/c and re-evaluate on the T.

      R doesn't change much beside us getting 4 new outs. If he bet 60c do we fold or still call? We would have a tough decision on the R since we don't beat any 9x.

      R action. I went for bet/fold. He might c behind some Jx if he's not strong enough.

      It seems a bit overplayed hand but other than calling flop overpot it seems quite ok.

      Hi yax,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: it's a limped pot, we have a pretty weak hand and we are OOP. So we should simply muck our hand or at least not invest a ton of money into the pot.

      Our edge is marginal at best against an unknown.

      As played the river is a good donk for value vs Jx+.

      Hi!


      I would probably donk on the flop:

      1. We almost always have the best hand.
      2. We have some back-doors, if called.

      We are OOP in a limped pot so building it up with a weak hand is a sure way to lose money.

      Sure we may have the best hand some amount of the time but how many streets do we bet? How do we play turn/river? Etc.

      I would make this play only against more passive villains. So, that they don`t take the pot on the turn too often, after we check.
      And plan, generally, would be to bet only once and try to get to showdown, if unimproved.

      We`re not investing too much. But I see your point and understand it.
      Anyway, we`re not making too much money (if any :D ) with this play, so it`s rather unnecessary.

      Indeed :)

      We only invested what we were forced to. The pot is small and while it's nice to pick it up we have 0 info on villain and his ranges/tendencies so with weaker hands we are better off playing "weaker" and folding.
