      so we were in our way back from the casino discussing this hand at 50$nl live"

      Utg - 200bb 100£
      utg+1 100bb
      utg+2 200bb
      mp 100bb

      co 300bb
      d 300bb 150£
      sb 80bb
      bb(hero) 400bb 200£


      Utg opens for 3£
      Hj calls
      Co calls
      D calls
      sb folds
      Hero Calls (3 :club: 4 :heart:)

      Flop 2 :diamond: 6 :spade: J :diamond:

      hero checks
      UTG 7£
      Hj calls
      Co folds
      D folds
      Hero calls

      pot (36.50)

      Turn 5 :club: - 2 :diamond: 6 :spade: j :diamond: 5 :club:

      bb Hero checks

      utg bets 15£

      Hj raises 30 £

      If you must know??

      Hero raises 80 £

      Utg goes all in for 20£more

      Hj Flats 50 £

      i think a check shove for value would've been the best play ( cause there will be a lot of scare cards in the river which can slow action, being that hero is first to act ) but then .... what do yous think , i don't think the outcome is important on this decision,

      Preflop: Fold pre? Calling here is a huge leak. If they opened 2bb, this would def be a call. If they opened 3bb it would be pretty close but probably a marginal call. Any larger and this is a clear fold. 6bb is so huge and you are going to be playing OOP

      Flop: The flop call is also extremely marginal. The good thing though, is that you are closing the action so you don't have to fold vs a raise.

      Turn: I don't see how you could play this any differently besides shoving. Calling is def not an option and with the nuts you should just try to get all the money in as the huge favourite and cooler their overpairs or sets.
