      Hi everyone,

      As there is no space for us, poor NL2 players ( ;] ) Im writing in this forum. I have (and probably will have more in near future) questions about a couple of hands I play. Here's one of them:

      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (9 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      UTG ($2)
      Hero (UTG+1) ($2.08)
      MP1 ($3.19)
      MP2 ($2.71)
      MP3 ($3.17)
      CO ($3.28)
      Button ($2.33)
      SB ($2.70)
      BB ($2.96)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with J, J
      1 fold, Hero bets $0.10, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.10, 2 folds, SB raises to $0.26, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.16, MP3 calls $0.16

      Flop: ($0.80) 5, 3, 9 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.42, Hero calls $0.42, MP3 calls $0.42

      Turn: ($2.06) 9 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.88, Hero folds, 1 fold

      Total pot: $2.06 | Rake: $0.10

      Was it okay? Thanks.

      Hello,

      Nice hand, well played. But it wont be wrong to go broke there because they are often showing some worser hand.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      What about a raise on the flop to find out where you stand, but also thats about the best possible flop for jacks, i think i would raise/all-in flop?

      As I said, it wont be wrong to go broke on such board but myself I would prefer to fold on turn and avoid the variance. With stats it would be easier to say what would be better to do in such situation.

      Hello.

      Isnt it better to reraise the flop and probably and to fold to shove. We have no idea where we are standing with just calling. If he shove we fold, if he calls we can play turn IP.

      Thanks

      When we raise on flop then we have to Call the shove also because we will be commited.
