      Hey guys!

      CO: 12/11/2,0 after 225 hands
      BU: 17/8/1,6 after 434 hands

      I donked flop because CO only cbets 20% and I don't want everyone to check behind.

      Turn is weird because he only has a PSB left and I wasn't sure what to do so I just shoved. Should I c/f?


      Pacific, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      MP: $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $12.63 (126.3 bb)
      CO: $4 (40 bb)
      BTN: $10 (100 bb)
      Hero (SB): $10.38 (103.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9 9
      MP folds, CO raises to $0.35, BTN calls $0.35, Hero calls $0.30, BB folds

      Flop: ($1.15) 4 3 5 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.86, CO calls $0.86, BTN folds

      Turn: ($2.87) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.87, CO calls $2.79 and is all-in

      River: ($8.45) 5 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      $8.45 pot ($0.42 rake)
      Final Board: 4 3 5 4 5
      CO showed J J and won $8.03 ($4.03 net)
      Hero showed 9 9 and lost (-$4 net)

      Hey Ras,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Against a 40 BB stack and given how the board texture is I don't see any other option on the turn.

      Last thing we want is to let him see a free river.

      C/f is an option because he mostly bets better however I think that shoving 1 PSB is better because there are worse hands that call... all draws and 22/66/77/88

      hi bogdan - what makes check/calling not an option on the turn? if he was less nitty would it not be a nice idea because he can ship his overcards and FDs.

      or is the whole point that we don't give him a chance to check back and get a free river?

      Oh I think I know why!

      He checks his FD's and overcards behind and if he doesn't hit he folds we lose value?

      I think he can check back weak pairs and draws (doubt he has many overcards) and just bets the better hands.

      We want to get him to pay up with his worse hands too.
