      Play hand

      $0.5/$1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG1:
      $38.95
      UTG2:
      $18.50
      MP1:

      MP2:

      MP3:

      CO:
      $134.15
      BU:
      $80.65
      SB:
      $132.95
      BB(Hero):
      $20.00


      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, 2.
      7 folds, SB calls $0.50, Hero raises to $2.00, SB calls $2.00.

      Flop: ($6) J, Q, 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $4.00, SB calls $4.00.

      Turn: ($14) T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $13.00(All-In), SB calls $13.00.

      River: ($40) 7 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $40.

      Villain is 20/12 after 70 hands.

      Against loose players I raise their sb complete with almost any hand. Flop is the mandatory continuation bet. Turn is a nice card giving us 17 outs (probably not all clean). Is it allright to bet or would it be possible to just check behind and wait if we hit?

      preflop i prefer raising those opencompletes to $1.50. as played nh.

      by pushing the turn you sometimes get better hands like Ahigh, Jx, 5x, Tx to fold.
      If you think he wouldn't fold any of those, checking behind is obviously better.

      you would have to look at his post flop stats. How often does he fold, is he aggressive or passive. Against very passive players, i will just check it down. He can easily have AQ, AJ, QK, QJ, KJ, JT, QT and will call you down.

      yea and BvB i would raise to just 3x

      I think 4x is better than 3x because with 3x, you give him 2:1

      But thinking about bashing the SB you should be aware what you will do postflop in case he calls. Also you have to think about what kind of hands you will flop, in this case you either flop a TPNK or FD+pair or FD.

      Therefore you can also check here and bet 2bb when SB checks, it is a cheaper alternative

      As played, nh!
