      Hand recorder for this hand: PokerStrategy.com SideKick 1.1.417.4

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:diamond: , K:heart:
      SB posts small blind ($0.02), Hero posts big blind ($0.05), UTG2 raises for $0.10, 5 folds, BU 3-bets $0.15, SB folds, Hero calls, UTG2 calls

      Flop: ($0.47 - 9.40 bb) T:spade: , 9:diamond: , 5:diamond: (3 Players)
      Hero checks, 2 checks

      Turn: ($0.47 - 9.40 bb) 3:diamond: (3 Players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $0.15, BU raises for $0.30, Hero calls, UTG2 folds

      River: ($1.22 - 24.40 bb) A:heart: (2 Players)
      Hero bets $0.85, BU raises for $2.60, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled back ($1.75)


      UTG2 was 6/5/0 over 65.
      BU was 17/8/4 over 60.

      Preflop: don't want to 4bet as both of these guys seems quite tight so I would be isolating myself vs the better part of their range. I'm also pretty sure that if UTG2 4bets I'm behind and can fold without a problem.

      Flop: I miss the flop so I give up.

      Turn: brings a nice FD to the nuts. when BU raises I figure I still have some implieds vs his possible overpair or lower FD. Again, if UTG2 3bets here it's an easy fold for me.

      River: when an A comes I think I will be ahead quite often (vs JJ-KK, maybe Tx and lower Ax) so I bet for value. Easy fold when raised - often I'll see 2pair like AT or maybe even a set like 33.

      This was a very strange hand :) I hope I didn't mess it up.

      Hey Dawidas888,

      Preflop is fine. It might be ok to raise in this spot seeing as BTN may be a fish and UTG2 min-raises. I think flatting is fine also though.

      Flop is fine.

      Turn call is fine, you should have ok implieds against the BTN here to make the call.

      Best play on river is possibly to check call. There are presumably busted straight-draws/flush-draws in villains range. There are also made-flushes and sets and two pair. Maybe occasionally Tx but likely BTN bets flop with Tx.

      Against this type of range you extract more value by letting villain bluff.

      Hi w34z3l

      Thanks again for the tip. I guess I've gone a bit too far with the aggression and I completely agree that this guy could bluff in this spot a ton. By betting I missed value :f_frown: and didn't see a showdown :f_cry:
