      MP wins $7.15 ( won $3.65 )
      SB lost -$0.50
      Hero lost -$3.50

      Ok so the strategy says that on a freeplay you can play top pair if you have J or higher kicker (iirc). I was faced with this situation but dont know if i played my hand right.

      Maybe just check/call small bets but if the bet gets bigger then just fold. That's my opinion.

      Hi Veriz,

      I would have bet the River as well to keep the Pot small, so if he reraises you you shoudl fold at the River. (Bet/Fold)

      I should have betted some more on the Turn but that's a minor thing.

      Well played

      I would not have payed the BB and left the table, not gotten to see such a raggy hand, and not had to risk my hard earned tokens on a top pair/medium kicker river decision.

      Hero ($6.30)

      If your software is showing an incorrect stack for the hero, I apologize.

      edit: and the basic strategy says you need top pair/high kicker (A or K) to bet like a made hand.

      dont post the BB!!!

      as played: raise flop a bit higher, bet turn higher. your bets make it too cheap for your opponents.

      and valuebet river

      btw, no results please

      J kicker makes your hand a made hand!
