      Hi guys and girls, I have been around poker for about 10 months now mostly trying to learn but always failed to do some real genuine work in short I was goofing around for that period of time.

      So here I am, decided to start a blog because anything poker related that requires thinking should help.

      I'm currently playing 10NL, but decided to start all over again when it comes to learning poker, because I don't want to miss any valuable info, so for start I chose mbml's Yolosaurus which I am like 1/2 through already, and I would recommend it to anyone who struggles at micros. Later I'm planning on going through Weazel's latest 2 courses, so I'm set for some time.

      SB: $14.84 (148.4 bb)
      BB: $6.43 (64.3 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $10 (100 bb)
      MP: $10 (100 bb)
      CO: $29.01 (290.1 bb)
      BTN: $15.20 (152 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with J J
      Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.75) 6 A 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.75) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, BTN raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1

      River: ($3.75) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $3.58, Hero calls $3.58

      $10.91 pot ($0.49 rake)
      Final Board: 6 A 7 4 Q
      Hero mucked J J and lost (-$5.38 net)
      BTN showed Q A and won $10.42 ($5.04 net)

      Villian unknown.

      I have assigned him this range on the river and I have been a bit generous I think, because I don't expect to see Ax that often, actually almost never. So to me it felt like a pure bluff specially with that river bet size.


      Any thoughts on this one?

      First of all I’m no cash game player, but I don’t think he will ever semi bluff on turn like this. I think it makes not to much sense to do that. So I would fold the turn already here, because he will do this to often with value hands I think.

      Further I wish you all the best to beat the micro stakes on the short handed tables :gl:
