      Against the two :club: 's on the flop I bet 2/3rd pot. I bet $1.5 here actually.

      The K is a pretty good hand to 2nd barrel also but I would like to know stats on villain to see if he can fold or not.

      Oh, almost forgot I don't like your Bet/Call on turn because his raise is repping the K (or better) and against the K we have 3 outs at best.

      Well your pfeflop raise is pretty loose - even 8 handed - and in the long run I suspect you loose money raising hands like these utg, because you have to fold to any 3bet.

      As played, c-bet bigger (1.75$+) otherwise you may as well not c-bet at all since 1$ into $2.35 creates hardly any fold equity.

      After that, check fold and save your money. If villain's not folding on an Ace high board, I don't see why he's folding just because a K comes...

      Against the two :spade: 's on the flop


      Two clubs, isn't it? Or is my display messing up? If it's two :spade: s then I have a bit more sympathy with the turn bet. But not much.

      Well, when one's poker skills are at best mediocre, you concentrate on being nitty and pointing out tiny mistakes in other people's posts, cos it makes you feel like da man :D

      Incidentally, which resorts do you instruct at?

      Hi RahXephon1,

      as said before raising ATs UTG is too lose, specially for nl25. Fold preflop.

      As played, I bet 1.5$ on the flop as the board is pretty draw heavy, but after that I give up the hand. Even though K on the turn is a very good card to second barrel turn I don't expect to have enough fold equity against unknown villain on nl25.

      Regards,
