      -----

      BB is unknown. Didn't look like a fish though.

      Preflop: my standard OR.

      Flop: His bet signals weakness as it's only 1/2 pot. Also I am ahead of most of his value range so I opted to raise for value and protection. I expect to be called here very often by draws and pair+draw combos. If I'm 3bet I fold.

      Turn: 7 completed a possible straight draw and his low bet may be meant to induce.
      In this spot I don't think I can raise for value as I would overrepresent my hand by making many weaker hands to fold. So I opted to call.

      River: He bets a smallish amount and I think I have good odds to call here vs weaker Jx, possibly Tx hands which missed their draw.
      I don't see value in raising as I don't think I will be called by worse hands.

      Hey Dawidas888,

      Preflop open is fine from MP3.

      I like the flop raise + your reasons for doing so.

      Turn call is borderline but possibly ok. Perhaps villain can still hold hands like JQ, QT, Q9s, KJ etc in his range.

      On the river I think your hand is a little weak to bluff-catch and I would fold. It's not impossible that villain would bet a worse Jx but he'd have to be pretty bad to do so imo. Range is going to be mainly 8x and the occasional over-valued 2-pair.

      Hi w34z3l

      For some reason I didn't think about 2-pairs. It will be hard to re-learn this as in this scenario villain was indeed holding QTo. However, I agree with you that in the long-term it will be a -EV call and I should fold. I may have problems with folding this on the tables now given my first experience :f_mad:

      Thanks for the help!
