      BB 42 hands 54/0/ 33 fold from BB

      IPoker, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BB: $13.01 (130.1 bb)
      UTG: $10 (100 bb)
      Hero (MP): $11.51 (115.1 bb)
      CO: $17.74 (177.4 bb)
      BTN: $4 (40 bb)
      SB: $18.16 (181.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with T A
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.30, CO folds, BTN calls $0.30, SB folds, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.95) J T A (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.76, BTN calls $0.76, BB calls $0.76

      Turn: ($3.23) K (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($3.23) 3 (3 players)
      BB bets $1.10, Hero calls $1.10, BTN folds

      Results:
      $5.43 pot ($0.36 rake)
      Final Board: J T A K 3
      BB showed J 6 and lost (-$2.16 net)
      Hero mucked T A and won $5.07 ($2.91 net)
      BTN mucked and lost (-$1.06 net)


      On this flop I should make pot site bet or even more? When both call I'm not happy.

      T is one of the worst cards. I was thinking of bet/f 1/2 pot. In the end I went for more passive line. Wasn't sure what to do.

      R I was ready to fold since there are many AJ, Qx, that beat me. When he beats so small I just had to call.

      Bet $1 on flop and then a bit more on this T and give up on R?

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: without much info on the fishy villain I much rather double barrel that tunr for thin valued than check back and call river.

      Why did we have to call when he bet so small and don't forget BTN can still be slowplaying although it's more unlikely.

      My thought process..."I had to".

      Vs one opponent I'm continuing on this turn very often but vs two + OOP vs one it's not the greatest spot I think. It is better to bet T and comfortably fold R if we get called however.

      Tnx Bogdan :f_thumbsup:

      Yeh, what I meant was that I would much rather bet turn than call river. But against two guys you are better off checking turn and folding river.
