      Hi all

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU(Hero):
      $2.07
      SB:
      $0.26
      BB:
      $0.34
      MP2:
      $4.70
      MP3:
      $1.97
      CO:
      $1.95


      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, T.
      MP2 raises to $0.06, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.06, 2 folds.

      Should have folded here, first mistake.

      Flop: ($0.15) Q, A, 6 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.04, Hero raises to $0.12, MP2 calls $0.08.

      I'm not sure about this one, he puts out a bet, which could be a cont-bet. I had something, although marginal, I decided to find out where I was at.

      Turn: ($0.39) Q (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.20, MP2 raises to $0.64, Hero calls $0.44.

      I now have trips, I bet, he raises me which was cocerning. The pot is pretty big so I thought I could't fold. He has stats of 60/27/3, if he had tight stats I would probably have folded.

      River: ($1.67) 3 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.88, Hero calls $0.88.

      Again I couldn't let go, I expected to be beat though.

      Final Pot: $3.43.

      Fold preflop like you said. I'm not so sure about your flop raise... any A will not fold here and given his loose style. I would just flat call, hope to improve on further streets and if not, go for a cheap showdown since he seems to bet small all the time... .if you had the A, then by all means raise it up against this loose player. On the turn, I would 3bet and get it in... since the pot is big enough and he is unlikely to fold an A.

      Hi,


      Assuming you're raise/fold the flop it's fine, he might have a gutshot or some worse made hands depending on how lose he's raising. Calling his smallish bet wouldn't be bad either, but at least that way you know what he'll do in response to you raising one of his minbets in the future.

      From the turn onward it's a mandatory calldown against a 60/27/3, he can have worse Qx hands or be wrongly playing Ax that way, you can't fold it to those odds and 3betting would both blow him off potential bluffs and maybe force Ax hands out of the pot.


      Hope it helps.

      He has stats of 60/27/3


      based on how many hands?

      Anyway, I like your play.
