      MP1:

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 9, 9.
      3 folds, MP3 calls $0.05, CO calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.25, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.20, CO calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.82) J, 5, 5 (4 players)
      MP3 bets $0.55, CO folds, Hero calls $0.55.

      Turn: ($1.92) K (3 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $0.90, MP3 calls $0.90.

      River: ($3.72) 6 (3 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $3.72.

      Results follow:

      MP3 shows two pairs, jacks and fives(Td Jd).

      Hero shows two pairs, nines and fives(9c 9s).

      MP3 wins with two pairs, jacks and fives(Td Jd).

      Is it too wrong to think that his call from MP3 is very weak and raise in position with 99?

      I tried to bluff turn, but it never works. :s_mad:

      Hi,


      I'd raise to $0.3 preflop but that's no big deal, two limpers are indeed weak enough for you to profitably raise 99 there.

      On the flop when he donks it mostly means either he has nothing and is afraid of your c-bet, or he has Jx 5x and he's betting for value, in both cases just calling is best imo.

      On the turn i don't get why you'd want to "bluff" there, either he has given up with a bluff or he still has you beat and he's never fold to just one bet, there is no need to turn 99 into a bluff at that point. Just check and try to see a showdown.


      Hope it helps.
