[NL2-NL10] 10PL drawing hand OOP flop and turn play

      First post!

      FTP PL10 FR, very early in session.

      Only 113 hands on button, running at 30/13. MP3 in just 32 hands seems semi-loose and has never raised preflop to this point.

      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      $0.05/$0.1 Pot-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with T, A.
      UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $0.35, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.35, CO folds, BU calls $0.35, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($1.20) 9, Q, 7 (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, MP3 folds, BU raises to $2.2, Hero calls $1.20.

      Turn: ($5.60) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $3.40, Hero calls $3.40....

      Because of the mini-raise on the flop, I'm putting button on a very strong hand that isn't folding to any size of semi-bluff on the turn, so I checked.

      I think the possible straights can be excluded from this guy's range because I hold the 10 :diamond: . Unfortunately, the guy only had a pot-sized bet left on the turn and after betting has only $1.93 behind. If he had bet his stack I probably couldn't call.

      Any thoughts on villain's range? Is there an alternative line on the flop?

      Have to put it here because there's no PL forum. Play it like NL if you like.

      Preflop; full ring game, this early, I would be folding preflop honestly. You're in poor position throughout the hand.

      Flop; the contibet is good, and a min raise at this level can mean anything. Still, I would put him on AQ+ and 99+, so you're not winning this one yet. I don't mind the call though

      Turn; check/call is not the line I would take here. you've improved with a gut shot but nothing else. Still you need 40% to keep going here, and his bet isn't giving it you I don't think (I'm still shaky on the math at this point so I hope a judge can outline it better). Either way, I don't like chasing anymore after this so check/fold would be my favoured option here.

      He has so many outs, lets do the math?:

      OESD:6 (2 discounted because they are in flushdraw)
      Possible 1 overcard to win: 3

      Its possible to have 18 outs there!!!!!

      Now i say that maybe you have to discount the overcard because of of the chance he holds AQ so you have 15. Anyway, equilator results...

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 65.909 % 65.909 % 0.000 % 34.091 % AsQh
      Player 2: 34.091 % 34.091 % 0.000 % 65.909 % AdTd

      So roughly, 1 in 3 cases we will win.

      With his bet we risk $3.4 to win $9. We need roughly 2:1 and it think we just get it...

      I would play check/call here...

      But my math has been rubbish, correct me if im wrong please and i will change it :P

      Just fold preflop. It's FR. You can be easly dominneted by a better Ace. (or JJ+)
      It also not that easy to play AT OOP.
      As played:

      Make it 4BB if you are raising.

      You can C-bet on that flop with the nut-FD. I rather bet 2/3 of the pot which is 80c.
      I also play here C/C. You getting the right odds And a positive EV.

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 32.273% 32.273% 0.000% 67.727% AdTd
      Player 2: 67.727% 67.727% 0.000% 32.273% 99, 77, AQs, AQo

      Assuming you hit and you will get his remaining 1.93

      EV(call)= 0.32*(10+1.93) - 0.67*(3.4) = 1.5 > 0

      I don't like playing AT here... It's fine to open AT from HJ, CO or BU but it's not a hand you wanna open with UTG+1 imo.

      Preflop: Very loose, I'd prefer to fold here.

      As played
      Flop: Seems to be fine.
      Turn: You can't really Call here, you either push after his bet or just fold.

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 67,727% 67,727% 0,000% 32,273% 99, 77, AQs, AQo
      Player 2: 32,273% 32,273% 0,000% 67,727% AdTd

      EV(Push) = 0,322*5,6 - 0,677*5,33 = -$1,8

      So this is a fold for me. More often I give him here a set and against a set it's even bigger loss.

      Best regards,
