      MP: $21.13
      CO: $18.12
      BTN: $16.00
      SB: $12.38
      BB: $29.94
      Hero (UTG): $26.78

      Pre Flop: ($0.24) Hero is UTG with T :spade: A :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.56, MP calls $0.56, CO calls $0.56, 3 folds

      Flop: ($1.92) 2 :diamond: K :spade: J :diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $1.04, CO folds, Hero raises to $3.04, MP calls $2

      Turn: ($8.00) 3 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.00, MP folds

      I became aware that I was only making check/raises for value (and normally just cbetting value hands) and also normally folding if I checked. So I decided to try adding in some semibluff combos as well as checkraising more for value.

      To balance checkraising here with my limited range of FD's I would have to C/R some backdoors as well and this would be one of them.... Do you think I'm going too far looking for spots?

      Oh, MP is a TAG 18/14 on 600 hands and CO (with 6% overall 3bet but so far none on MP) is a 43/26 on 250 hands.

      Hi DaPhunk

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: unless you are basing your decisions on information about villains (ex: they bet a lot vs missed cbets) I'd go with the standard of chatting. Ur rarely ever ck raising any value hands like this anyway and you are trying to bluff a fish... But at least you a nice hand for it.
