      Fold preflop or Iso depending on how loose you feel like playing/how fishy UTG2 is.

      As played, I'm folding turn. Most likely folding flop. I definitely wouldn't be betting on the river as he can have a bluff catcher like J :club: T :diamond: or something.

      Hello,

      Which strategy do you follow? As for BSS you must have at least 100bb before the beginning of every hand.

      Fold preflop. With this stack we don't want to be calling such hands.

      Calling the flop is fine.

      As played, just call his turn minbet and proceed to the river.

      I wouldn't bluff the river here.

      Best,

      Hi,

      re buyin: I follow a min buyin strategy and am usually 9 tabling. when I lose my stack I will open a new table (no rebuy). is this considered a weakness?

      when villain called my turn raise, I bear in mind that if he had a flush, he was min betting to induce action. taking this into perspective: if I was the one to induce action, I would have gone all in with my opp raising big and drawing dead, so why did I not shove but call on turn? cos I have a good hand but couldn't beat a flush. river card completes all flushes, if my speculation is right, river should be a scary card for him, therefore my shove.
