      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.5/$1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $87.10
      BU:
      $9.50
      SB(Hero):
      $24.50
      BB:
      $109.55
      UTG2:
      $75.20
      MP1:
      $100.00
      MP2:
      $134.50
      MP3:
      $15.05

      Preflop: Hero is SB with T, T.
      UTG2 raises to $2, 5 folds, Hero calls $1.50, BB folds.

      Flop: ($5.00) 5, 3, 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 checks.

      Turn: ($5.00) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.00, UTG2 calls $4.00.

      River: ($13.00) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $8.00, Hero calls $8.00.

      Final Pot: $29.00.


      Several questions:
      1. UTG2 is somewhat loose, so is it best to shove pf?

      2. As played, is flop check/raise line reasonable?

      3. Is river a fold better?

      Thanks.

      Hi there,

      Without knowing UTG's stats there is no way to evaluate this I think. Could you post them?

      1. I would raise pf if he is loose. Shove flop if called.
      2. dunno.
      3. Depends if hes aggro or not. When he checks flop it looks like he doesnt need to protect, so perhaps he wants another diamond to fall. Perhaps he has the Ad.
      After you bet turn, he should know you are not folding river for that size bet, so it looks like a value bet to me. Maybe you could blockbet river?

      1. Raise to $6

      2. Cbet. I don't like c/r here because your hand is vulnerable to overcards and another diamond

      3. Would need some stats but against unknown I don't like folding against river overcard

      1) It depends how loose utg is, if he is very loose player -> push, if he is not loose enough -> fold.

      2) His cbet flop stat?

      3) I would push the river, but I don't like how you played whole hand,

      He is about 16/10/2.5 but only 75 hands. I've seen him raising J9s in UTG2, maybe just balancing his play.
      I just went up to NL100, so not many useful stats.

      Thanks for the replies.

      Raise to 6/ 6.50$ preflop, cbet flop and shove turn, if board is suitable.

      I would like to see some positional stats on him not just one occurance of idiocy. It could have been a misclick.
      However, If I don't see positional stats indicating he is tight in UTG i deem him to be raising too lose and 3bet to $5.5 or $6. I intensely dislike slowplaying TT. There are SO many cards that can come on flop that you just DON'T want to see.

      As played i B/F river.

      Hey catleonet,

      unless you have stats or strong reads on the opponent I would fold preflop and not risk my 24,5BB stack here.

      If I presume he is lose enough to raise him then I would raise to 6BBs preflop and play bet 8$/shove on the flop or shove turn if called.

      Calling preflop is no option with SSS.

      To your questions:

      1. I think with so big stack it's better to raise than push as written above.

      2. You shouldn't find yourself in this spot because calling preflop with SSS is a sin. :s_evil: As played, I would prefer to bet out myself if he's a bit loose/worse player as you said in the opening post.

      3. As played, I would bet/fold river.

      Regards,
