      I would raise preflop and try to get HU or at least 3way pot. As played either check behind turn or bet more , I don`t see the point of that 1/3 bet IP. As played get it all in on river is standard

      Hi BogdanDin7,

      Thanks for your answer. I agree with you. This hand, analysed alone, seems that i have made some dumb moves.

      But i need to add a little more info. I had raised the previous 3 hands and decided to make a tricky move by just limpin in with so many limpers. Only the perfect flop would keep me in. And the flop was good for me. Nevertheless, i made a big raise to put competition with Flushes and str8s draws out. Only one caller (the MP2). Thats exactly the player i wanted to keep playing because this player stats (with 35 hands played) were 90/10/0,3 !!!!

      Thats why my bet on the turn was so small, i didn't wanted to scare my opponent. He was the perfect call station. His range was the whole deck.

      I bet 7$ on the river hoping he had hit trips or had Q9 and re-raise. well, he had the nuts !!!

      Nevertheless, i agree that i should have bet more on the turn but he wouldn't have folded. A call station with 2 pairs doesn't fold any bet (except an all in, i guess).

      Regards

      If you wanted to go fancy that`s ok . However if he is such a calling station then you should bet turn even more often because stations will call you with everything from a middle pair with fd kind of hands maybe even less and you want to get value from them . He wont scare away if he has any kind of hand

      I´d prefer raise pf. TT is not nuts which you should play pf, and likely he would call anywaym, since you raised 3 times in a row.
      I would bet turn 5$.

      Hi,

      Thank you for your comments.

      After 3 limpers i decided to also limp in because i believed that (if raise) i would get called by at least 2 players (because i had raised the previous 3 hands), and a flop with one overcard would scare me against more than one opponent.

      But i agree that the standard play is to raise. No dough about that.

      Regards
