      Pacific, $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      Hero (MP): $26.09 (130.5 bb)
      CO: $23.33 (116.7 bb)
      BTN: $32.70 (163.5 bb)
      SB: $26.67 (133.4 bb)
      BB: $20.60 (103 bb)
      UTG: $20.89 (104.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K A
      UTG raises to $0.52, Hero raises to $1.64, 4 folds, UTG calls $1.12

      Flop: ($3.58) 7 T Q (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $1.99, UTG raises to $5, Hero calls $3.01

      Turn: ($13.58) J (2 players)
      UTG bets $10.18, Hero calls $10.18

      River: ($33.94) 6 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $4.63, UTG calls $4.07 and is all-in

      $42.08 pot ($2.10 rake)
      Final Board: 7 T Q J 6
      Hero showed K A and won $39.98 ($19.09 net)
      UTG showed Q Q and lost (-$20.89 net)

      When he makes such a small raise can I call? Im putting him on sets, many Qx, straight draws (I've seen him raising draws). I knew that if I can hit my straight on the turn or hit an A or K I can get his whole stack. But what I didn't think about was that I won't get to see the river if I miss the turn.

      edit: oops this is NL20, but I guess it can be treated as a NL10 hand.

      Hi Tommy,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Flop, vs unknown, we should bet/fold the flop. He has AQ/KQ/QQ/TT/77 that can all play like this.

      AS played just ship the turn. I have no idea why we leave him 4 behind.

      remember, this is a 3bet pot, so his calling range is narrower given that he is OOP and especially since he is the original raiser.

      sets: a possibility, sure
      many Qx: how many Qx does he call a 3bet with and then raises this flop with? QJs, KQs, AQs. Doubt any other Qx are in his range
      straight draws: don't know if he raises 9Js from UTG, let alone call a 3bet with it OOP. KJs could be a possibility

      with the range of sets+QJs, KQs, AQs, KJs on the flop:

      Board: 7:club: T:heart: Q:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    28.13%  27.83%   0.30% { AdKc }
      MP3    71.87%  71.56%   0.30% { QQ, TT, 77, AQs, KJs+, QJs, AQo }

      as for your comment about getting his stack when if an A or K hits, well, with an A hitting on the turn, you have 26-27.62%, so basically the A is out as a good turn card, which leaves us with the K(3outs) and of course the J(4 outs )


      and if the turn bricks, are you calling his turn bet ?

      hope this helps
