      Okay to slowplay this board? I felt I had the uncrackable nuts on the turn. Only likely hand that could suck out on me was JJ looking for a FH / 4oak; about a 20% shot of that if he had it, with raise range 19% 55+ A4s+ QTs+ A7o+ KTo+ making it an absolute longshot to hold the JJ.

      I figured best to not take him out of the lead until the river, in order to have best chance of felting.

      Edit - while writing this I was referring to HUD for raise range stats, which is why I said 19 when hand posted says 17 PFR.

      Wow. Self analysis of that post shows a massive scare - I missed the possible spade flush draw.

      Thats pretty embarassing :)

      Hey buddy,

      Nice hand. I think call on flop is ok. I would be inclined to reraise on turn though, but a good river card for you.

      Preflop: Fold. I really don't like cold calling suited connectors with 93bb effective - you can do this with another cold caller infront though.

      Flop: Well, this is about one of the best boards you can hope for when calling with suited connectors, so a call is on order. OK

      Turn: Raise! Not only do you need to protect against FD, you also want value here so you don't have to overbet the river so big.

      River: Since you raised turn, you can safely shove here without overbetting :)

      I know you like suited connectors, but you need to find better spots to play them ;)

      I actually considered long about if to play them here. I was IP against the raiser and thats why I decided to take the plunge. Any raise behind me was going to cost me 40c :\ Marginal situation.

      preflop is fine, as flop is. I am raising on the turn to get the money in and to protect.

      Best regards,
