      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $9.90
      BB:
      $10.00
      UTG2:
      $18.80
      MP1:
      $13.66
      MP2(Hero):
      $15.50
      MP3:
      $4.15
      CO:
      $17.44
      BU:
      $9.89


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, A.
      UTG2 raises to $0.40, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $1.20, 5 folds, UTG2 calls $0.80.

      Flop: ($2.55) 4, A, 6 (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $1.20, Hero raises to $3.50, UTG2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.75.

      Is there something to do differently ? I thought about calling and let him bet on turn also, but was afraid of FD. Opponent was 34/22/2 over 34 hands (so some suited connectors can be even in his call 3bet range. unlikely though, if I think about it). Raised and hoped that he has AK or 44, 66 or something what he thinks is enough strong to call or shove.

      Hi,


      I wouldn't worry too much about the flushdraw, you have the Ac for a potential redraw as well as boat outs, i don't think the need for protection is enough to counterbalance the fact that he can't really have anything strong to call you with in that spot, AQ+/66/44 is a really narrow range.

      If you think there is a good chance he might bluff the turn again, then disregard the flushdraw and give him that opportunity. If not, raising the flop hoping he has something to play with us is fine too.


      Hope it helps.

      Nice hand, I personally would raise here to protect against flushdraw, but smooth calling I think is ok too.

      If the flop was rainbow then I would definitely slow play, at least until the turn.
