      Hi all

      Having a losing streak these few days, lost about 4.5 BI. Was really tired today so may have been playing badly.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP1:
      $1.26
      MP2(Hero):
      $2.07
      MP3:
      $2.03
      CO:
      $2.04
      BU:
      $1.04
      SB:
      $2.55
      BB:
      $2.00
      UTG2:
      $7.61


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q, Q.
      UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, 2 folds, BU calls $0.10, 2 folds, UTG2 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.33) J, 8, 2 (4 players)
      UTG2 bets $0.33, Hero calls $0.33, BU calls $0.33.

      I wasn't quite sure what to do here, his bet doesn't seem to make too much sense. So I decided to just call.

      Turn: ($1.32) A (4 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.70, BU calls $0.61, UTG2 folds.

      I should c/f right?

      River: ($2.63) A (3 players)


      Final Pot: $2.63.

      Hi,


      In a bloated pot with 100bb effective stacks and an unknown limp/calling preflop before donking pot into me i'm just raising him right there on that drawy board and calling a shove from anybody since BU is apparently also a loose halfstack, they'll show up with any Jx or random draws often enough.

      -4.5 BI isn't really a downswing, as long as you feel like you're playing fine don't worry about it. Playing while tired probably isn't the best idea tho :p


      Hope it helps.

      I fully agree. Should have just raised right on the flop.

      BU had AJ.
