      Titan Poker 0.10/0.20, hand converted by the iPoker Converter at Talking-Poker

      saw flop

      Button SpeedyBob ($12.59)
      SB ermanco ($2.28)
      BB Hero ($10.00)
      UTG Baghira72 ($9.46)
      UTG+1 Dexter10 ($5.51)
      CO Adlermudda ($10.34)

      Preflop: Hero is in the BB with Q:heart: J:heart:
      1 fold, Dexter10 raises to 0.20, 2 folds, ermanco calls 0.15, Hero calls 0.10.

      Flop (0.60) 8:club: 7:diamond: Q:diamond:
      ermanco checks, Hero bets 0.40, Dexter10 calls 0.40, 1 fold.

      Turn (1.40) 5:diamond:
      Hero bets 1.00, Dexter10 raises to 2.00, Hero calls 1.00.

      River (5.40) 3:spade:
      Hero checks, Dexter10 bets 1.35, Hero calls 1.35

      Dexter stats: 35.7/30/4.7/28 (vpip/pfr/af/wts) with 70 hands

      On preflop I called because SB already called so I had good odds, and it was just a miniraise after all. Could I call even if SB didn't call?

      On the flop I donkbetted because he probably wouldn't cbet and I didn't want to give a free card on this connected board.

      I didn't really understand his call, I think he could call with 2 overcards, a FD and maybe a SD. So I kept betting, although maybe I should have controled the pot since it's a raised pot and KQ and AQ still beats me. The FD completed too, so I don't really know...

      On the river I decided to check/call, no reason to bet.

      Hi Tosh,
      PF and flop are fine (although you could bet .50$ on flop for more protection). On the turn, you don't really beat much else than middle pair, so bet/fold is best. Although it's just a minraise, you'll have to call a river shove very often, so you can still fold with those odds.
      And yes, preflo pyou can easily call QJs vs a minraise even with no coldcallers.
