      MP2 shows two pairs, jacks and nines(As Jd).

      BU shows a flush, king high(Ts Js).

      BU wins with a flush, king high(Ts Js).

      His bet on flop seems to me that he wanted to put more money in the pot for his draw. Maybe I should raise 3x his bet. Then turn against two opponents I decided to leave the hand. :f_mad:

      Hi,


      Raise bigger preflop, to something like $0.55 to account for both you being out of position and the dead money in the pot.

      Postflop just c-bet that board, you'll put yourself in bad spots if you start getting fancy without a strong reason. If nobody has Kx you're still good and you'll get calls from all sorts of draws and worse pairs on that board. You also have a gutshot for some extra equity.


      Hope it helps.

      Hi tamairlarace,

      I'm sorry but I didn't get your point :f_confused:
      Should I had raised 3x his initial bet on flop?
      About "Postflop just c-bet that board" you mean that I should had bet on turn?

      BTW, thank you for all your reviews! :)

      Best regards

      PH

      You should have raised x3.5. the 0.5 extra is for being OOP. You can also add 1BB for the limp of MP2 and make it 0.6$

      About the flop tamairlarace meant that you should have bet instead of check/raise.
      Anther thing if you are check/raising you should make it a bigger (at least 1.2$).
      By betting small you are giving good odds for drawing hands to call.

      Good Luck.
