      Hello!

      Stats:
      29 hands, 21/4/0
      AF:1.0, WTSD:40

      What do you think of this hand?

      I think there are enough other Jx,Qx and draws to push it.

      Thanks!

      Hi

      I think the Flop is a pretty clear check - betting is a mistake. I don't like the Turn reraise because your hand is mostly a bluff catcher here. He reps JX (most JX are stronger than JT) and full houses and some bluffs so you should call Turn and call River.

      Thanks.

      Thanks!
      Why check the flop? There are a lot of worst hand can call.

      like what? draws have decent equity vs you

      I guess it helps that he's a fish, so he'll be likelier to call 99/88/6X/77 type of hands. Still, your kicker is pretty weak. I think it would be much better with AJ/KJ.

      Here, you lose to all QX/AJ/KJ so you really need him to call with a ton of worse pairs like the lower pocket pairs i did mention. Besides, you can never go for 3 streets here, so you could always go for your value on a later street. And in general, fishes misplay their hands to a much greater extent, simply because they tend to completely misread your hand strength after the flop check.
