      How should i react to minraises like this on similar situations ? Turn is an easy fold i suppose? What might be the reason for his all-in there ? The turn card is a blank

      Is the hand played well? I suppose i should not make a contibet against 3 opponents even though i am in position ? What could he be holding there and would it rather be dumb of me to call there? He seems to be an average TAG.

      My opponent here is a loose passive fish , i was betting rather small because i only have a pair there and i didnt want to get involved in a very big pot. His bet on the river is an easy fold? Although i saw him pull a similar play on a hand before that one.

      Opponent is rather loose and fishy.He bets first into me potsize. How should i react there? Would it have been better there to raise him 3x so that i can easily call his all-in ? Or just call him and see how he acts on the turn ? Oh, and what if he was fullstack ?

      I think the ALLIN on the turn was to protect himself from a :heart: -FLUSH or a Straight-draw.

      (which would explain his raise after your bet on the river too, because he had the best hand - or thought so .. he might even had AK "only" but also KK,QQ,KQ,K8s,Q8s,88,K4s (which would explain is ALLIN too - depending on his style of play)

      The problem is that even with a bigger bet after the flop he might have called you with AK.

      1) nice hand against this very passive opponent.

      2) nh

      3) push him on the flop. if he was fulsstack, id still raise the flop and probably call a push.
