      My first topic at hand evaluations. New to real money poker and just starting to learn the strategies. Thought to post one of my recent hands:

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:

      MP1:
      $2.10
      MP2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 5, 5.
      MP1 folds, Hero calls $0.02, MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.08, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.19) 6, 5, 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.20, CO calls $0.10.

      Turn: ($0.59) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, CO folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.59.

      Hi LightXRay

      Welcome to the evaluation forums.

      Preflop: I would recommend NOT limping in first. If you like your hand raise it, otherwise just fold it.

      Postflop: As played you raise size needs work. You are giving him a good price to see a turn card and you want to charge him more for that. A 30c raise would be better.

      The turn bet is fine.

      As a side note, once you leave a reply make sure to also click the "Advise judge to take another look" button so we can see that you flagged the hand for a response.

      Best of luck,

      Bogdan
