      Wierd hand but still a hand.

      Preflop action comes to me with good odds and with such a playable cards I go for a call.

      Flop is low and given the fact that I have two overcards, straight draw and backdoor flush, I decide to lead one street and hopefullt take it down. Bet sizing here could probably be a little more, but against miltiway, this should work too.

      Turn: only limper is left in the hand and turn brings up a flush draw for me.
      with given draws and villain passiveness I go for chk/call a decent sized bet. Bad thing here is of course the fact that I still have J high. That means I even do not beat villains flush draws.

      River: blank for me, so there is nothing left to fold.
      But villains bet of 0,30 really screams for "look at my hand".
      I recall that the player was a fish, so I took a shot and called.

      Though overall a poorly played hand from my side.

      Hi Ilioas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that you are overplaying your hand.

      First, you are against 2 potential fish, one limper and one short. Second we bet so small that anything can float us.

      Our equity is poor at best and we really don't want to be b luffing into fish but mostly play for pure value.

      So ck/fold flop. As played we should bet the turn and get him to fold his floats (given our small flop donk) and river can be a barrel too given the card.
