      Hi,

      Is limping with JTs possible here? Is it correct to call the minraise?
      Any mistakes on flop/turn/river, was raise in order at any stage?

      Thanks!

      JTs definantly has some playability, if you are confident in your post-flop skills. In 6h I am raising this out of the CO though. Fine to limp-call min if you choose to play them passive. I like having initiative.

      NH, WP. Any raise on the flop or turn would have been a semi-bluff and therefor a mistake as I doubt we can semi-bluff the villain off his top pair, even with that hopeless kicker. It would be difficult to credit someone with a better limped A.

      Hello,

      Preflop: I'd prefer to raise it up myself also and take initiative but that ain't that wrong with only Calling but I would prefer to do it when we have more limpers.

      As played
      Nice hand, well played. And yes, it's correct to Call such minraise, perfect odds for your draw. It's fine to take the passive way to play the hand.

      Please don't post results, it may affect evaluating.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
