      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K:heart: , Q:diamond:

      River: ($2.36) A:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.92 (All-In), Hero raises to $0.67 (All-In).

      Final Pot: $4.95

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      SB shows [ 9h, 8d ] a pair of Tens
      Hero shows [ Kh, Qd ] two pairs, Queens and Tens
      SB wins $1.25 USD with a pair of Tens.
      Hero wins $3.52 USD with two pairs, Queens and Tens.

      Strange hand. Don't know whether my instinct to call on the River was right. Couldn't put my opponent on a hand. In fact, he had nothing. But was my play too risky without stats? I know I'm not supposed to give results but I can't fathom villain's play and maybe I'm missing something?

      To be honest Tim i wouldn't have played this hand from MP at all as the SHC states to play it from LP/Blinds.

      As it was played after his min bet on the flop i would have just pushed on the flop as any raise leaves you pot commited anyway.

      Hi Steve,

      Thanks for this. What you say about just pushing after his minraise makes sense.

      I guess, though, that since the table was 7-handed for this hand, my MP3 is actually late position, so the pfr is ok? In your answer, where you say "i would have pushed just pushed pre-flop", is the second bit a typo?

      Cheers mate,

      T

      Hey Tim,

      The typo has now been corrected :D .

      As for the table being 7-handed instead of 9/10 handed you would still be considered as MP.

      Example.

      On a 9 handed table you would have SB, BB, EP1, EP2, MP1, MP2, MP3, CO, BTN.

      If they table drops down to 7-handed then you just have SB, BB, MP1, MP2, MP3, CO, BTN.

      I hope this helps.

      Regards,

      -Steve

      Hey Steve,

      I think I see what you mean, but just let me check:

      The less good your hand is, the later the position you need to play it, as I understand it. So, if you are normally advised to raise K,Qo in LP (CO or BU) then that must be because, theoretically, there are at most 3 players after you who could have a better hand (BU, SB and BB).

      What you're saying is that the fact that there are less players in front of me (because the table is short-handed) doesn't change the fact that, at the time I raised, there were still 4 players to come after me, which is why it was risky to make the raise. Is that right?

      Thanks again,

      Tim

      Yeah that's correct Tim although there are still 4 to act and not 3, CO, BTN, SB, BB.

      Yep - 4 players to act as I played it (from MP3). But in Late Position, there would only be 3 to act?

      That's what I meant - I was trying to distinguish between what I should have done (2nd para) and what I did do (3rd para).

      CO & BTN stays whether it is a 10 handed game or 6 handed game ...

      Fold KQ next time on Mp3, horrible hand after all :D

      as played either reraise to $0.6 postflop or shove. I prefer reraising to $0.6

      Best regards,
