      Preflop: Hero is MP with T T
      Hero raises to $0.85, CO folds, BTN calls $0.85, 2 folds

      Hero checks, BTN checks

      FtCB: F - 44(9)
      Bet vs missed CB: F - 67(3)
      AG% - 42 (48/37/33)

      I got lost in this spot - am I check/folding this hand or check/calling it? Was curious/tilted so I went for check/call on 2 streets. Right now it doesn't make sense to check/call even OTF.

      I don't really want to cbet this hand either as I expect every single to call me.

      Hi David,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: It's either a bet or ck/fold. Your line is so weak on a super dangerous board for our hand that we are just putting money into the pot with no hope.

      We are easily getting valuetowned by Ax or even better pairs like JJ.

      Hi Bogdan,

      Thanks for the evaluation!

      I agree that check/calling TT with no flush draw is super weak play :f_biggrin: By working with my range I figured that I should probably bluff bet with it OTF.


      PREFLOP – MP RFI range
      AA-22, AKo-ATo, KQo, AKs-A7s, A5s, KQs-KTs, QJs-QTs, JTs-J9s, T9s-T8s, 98s-97s, 87s-86s, 76s-75s, 65s, 54s – 17.9%

      FLOPA 7 6 (203 combos)
      Value betting range: 77-66(6), AK-AQ(24), A7s(3), 76s(3), Q:dJ-Q:dT(2), J:dT-J:d9(2), T:d9-T:d8(2), 9:d8(1), 5:d4(1) = 44
      - Includes sets, TPTK, TP2K, 2pairs, non nut flushes
      Draw/bluff betting range: KKn-88n(18), 55f-22f(12), T9n-T8n(6), 97n(3), 87n-86n(6), 75n(3), 65n(3)= 51
      - Strong PPs without a flush draw, weak PPs with FD, pairs + BDSD combos
      Total combos bet: 95 (CBet – 47%)

      Total combos checked: 108
      Check-raising range: AA(3), K:dQ-K:dT(3), K:dQx(3), KxQ(3), 98n(3), 54n(3) = 18

      - Bluff range includes nut/2nd nut flush draws and OESDs.
      Check-calling range: KKf-88f(18), AJ-AT(24), A9s-A8s(6) = 48
      - Strong PPs with flush draw, weak TPGK.
      Total combos of checks defended: 66 (61%)

      After check/calling OTF

      - Strong PPs with nut/2nd nut flush draw and TP with broadway kicker.

      Check-calling range: AJ(12)

      *f – with a flush or backdoor flush draw
      *n – no flush draw


      1. My range OTR is super weak but I’m not sure what hands could I include to make it stronger? Maybe I don't even need to make it stronger at all?
