      Hand 1
      Please find the following hand for analysis:
      66 in MP+1 and I always open pp to 3X. SB and BB calls. The rest of the hand is played passively by all players. I do not want to bet on such a wet board with two opponents however I have position. I wanted to keep the pot small and avoid a check raise. On the turn no bets and the river a small bet from the SB.

      What I know about the villains:
      SB: only one hand so no real data.
      BB 31 hands 16/10 and evidence for 2bet AKs. 0% check raise so far

      • Should I have betted the flop/turn
      • Is the river call ok or should I have folded

      I called because of the pot odds and because the turn and river card did not beat my six. If one of the villains had trips I would have expected a bigger bet.

      Hi Barlin,

      Preflop: SB looks fishy given the limited information (small stack).

      Your 3x raise is fine.

      Postflop: The flop is not the greatest and I agree with checking back but once the turn gets checked I think we can take a stab at the pot. It's clear that no strong hands are in their range or even Ax.

      As played I think the river should be a fold rather than a call. There are plenty of better pairs playing like that.

      As a side note, when you leave a reply, please don't forget to hit the advise judge to take another look button.
