      Hey, MP 19/13/49 hands
      Considered 3betting pre, but he seems fairly tight & the blinds were passive so I think calling is better.

      Not sure what kind of range he takes this flop/turn line with, but really don't think he c/calls this flop with overpairs/sets etc.
      What do you think? mostly draws?

      I think he can c/c flop with JJ/TT some Qx, but doesn't make sense to be c/raising the turn, thats why I think he's full of it most of the time.

      So in saying that, should I just ship turn since I have no SD value?

      I need 24% vs his turn raise. VS a strong range of:


      http://www.pokerstrategy.com
      Board: Qh3h9s7d
      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 37.76% 37.76% 0.00% { KhJh }
      MP3 62.24% 62.24% 0.00% { QQ, 99, Q9s, JTs, 97s }

      I easily have an odds call so I chose to flat.


      Hero (BTN): $33.85 (135.4 bb)
      SB: $11.97 (47.9 bb)
      BB: $25.08 (100.3 bb)
      UTG: $25 (100 bb)
      MP: $25 (100 bb)
      CO: $61.09 (244.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K J
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.75, CO folds, Hero calls $0.75, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) Q 9 3 (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $1.25, MP calls $1.25

      Turn: ($4.35) 7 (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $3, MP raises to $7.77, Hero calls $4.77

      River: ($19.89) 9 (2 players)
      MP bets $15.23 and is all-in, Hero calls $15.23

      Results:
      $50.35 pot ($2.00 rake)
      Final Board: Q 9 3 7 9
      Hero showed K J and won $48.35 ($23.35 net)
      MP showed 9 8 and lost (-$25 net)

      Hi,

      Preflop: If villain is super loose, you 3bet for isolation and for thin value. If villain is normal, you should flat because KJs is strong enough to play IP without the initiative. If villain is tight, KJs is no longer profitable as a call, so you can consider adding this to the bluff portion of your 3b range.

      Turn: He reps QQ mostly. I don't see him having air too often. Maybe he turns some made hand into a bluff

      River: Well we improve to a flush but the board pairs. If we are really sure that he has a full house then you can hero-fold. I'm not so sure about that, and calling can't be too bad,

      Hey thanks.

      So you think he can show up with QQ here? At the time i just had in my head "theres no way he c/calls flop with a set".

      Do you think he can play this way with draws?
      Also his small turn c/r made me think he has less nutted hands. Since he would want to protect.

      I didn't like the river, but since I was assuming he was draw heavy, i went with it.
      I was actually expecting to see the nut flush :D

      This cc cr line is usually done with a made hand. People usually just bet or cr flop with their draws.
      And qq has top set and when he has 2 Qs himself its harder for u to have top pair so people love slowplaying top set when the top card is a broadway.

      Thanks.
