      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $2.00
      BB (Hero):
      $3.82
      MP3:
      $2.90
      CO:
      $1.97
      BU:
      $1.20


      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, Q.
      MP3 calls $0.02, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, MP3 calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.17) 9, 2, Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.14, MP3 calls $0.14.

      Turn: ($0.45) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.36, MP3 calls $0.36.

      River: ($1.17) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.58, MP3 raises to $2.32(All-In), Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.75.

      Fish is 38/1/1.5 and when i get raised on river I calculated that even though I'm blocking one card and up against all nuts, I only need 30% equity, and I have it with any pair vs just one bluffing hand, so I should certainly call top pair here. Is this right?

      Hi,

      Since backdoor flushdraw got there and I don´t want to b/f then I would take c/c line. I´m not sure how light he would call me down, but since he has very likely quite a lot missed draws (JT, KT, T8 maybe even random Ax hands) I would prefer c/c river, instead of b/f. Once you bet I think fold is better, since players are not shoving enough missed draws.

      best regards,
