      Hand 1
      Nice hand imo. I'd probably play that hand the same way.

      Hand 2
      Pre-flop: Same thing as I said in one of your other posts, tighten up your SB range. If you get called you're always OOP post-flop and QJ simply isn't a brilliant hand.
      You're SB range should edge towards your UTG/MP range not your CO/BU range.

      Flop: Standard c-bet... but bet bigger. You say you want to protect against flush draws so bet at least 50c into that 65c pot.

      Turn: Bet/fold imo. I think you're often gonna see a set or KQ there tbh. I wouldn't be happy calling there at least cause I know I'd be commited on the river for the rest of my stack wich just sucks with just TPGK.

      Hi,



      Please try and post only 1 hand per thread unless they are related, it's easier for everyone to discuss.



      #1


      Your main decision in obviously on the turn : if you call the turn you can't fold the river. I think his line looks really strong and i doubt he does that with a worse Kx very often, he did call a strong bet on the flop. He might have something like Kdxd but those reasonable hands all beat you already except Kd9d, which still has 12 outs against you. I think you're better off laying it down without a read on how loose he is (how many Kx does it call both preflop and flop with).

      Let's not discuss your SB raising range again.

      On the turn when you get minraised you're usually not good with top pair, barring a read on the guy. Especially out of position it's better to just muck it against a committing raise.


      Hope it helps.
