      Bad call, I think. Pot is small and I couldn´t call all-in bet. Hardly the player bluffs that much to get only 2,35$

      I think that against unknown it still should be fold. Thought that BU was trying to steal the blinds again

      Wanted to leave next hand and then AK comes. What should I do. Just call 1 $ and fold if I don´t hit anything or re-raise and go-allin or re-raise and fold to the re-raise. I´m quite pot commited and I have to put 4,65$ to 11,35$ pot, so all-in?

      Maybe I should raise pre-flop with my sixes- standard steal situation. I think that I can maybe call river bet and hope that he has A5.

      1) I'd bet more on the turn to protect my 2 pair , or maybe bet half pot on river and fold to a reraise that puts me all-in.
      2) Most of the time your hand should be a favorite. Of course there are times where the stealers actually have a hand , but you should worry about what happens in the majority of hands rather than 1 single hand.So its a good play to go all in there.
      3) Thats the worse possible decision you could make. You have already invested 3$ and you are folding to his all-in. You almost have the odds here to call vs KK and only against AA you are really way behind. It's not a shame to avoid playing that hand at all preflop when you are on your last orbit waiting to leave the table with a big stack.
      4)Raising that hand preflop would usually save you from the trouble of having these tough decisions after the flop.I think its ok to call there on the river. You only have to win 1 out of 3 times.

      Thanks

      3) He just puts me all-in. His stack was 25$.
      It´s hard to imagine that I´m ahead here. But actually I don´t have any choice here. If I decide to play that hand I´ve put all my money in and hope he has QQ and it´s coinflip.

      No, u should actually hope he has an AQ and you're way ahead :)

      1)PSB on the turn as lone big clubs will fail to bet a non-club river.
      As played it is hard to put MP3 on QJ.Your hand is under-repped by your river check after which MP3's overbet could well be a busted draw. I think your river-call is OK.

      2)That's the way to treat a thief.

      3)Bad fold unless MP3 was packing AA. You have odds to call all other hands.

      4)Raise PF if the blinds are tight and you have not been raising first in from late position too much. NH as played.

      1) QJ is really hard to believe. I think that I still should fold all-in bet. The tricky players hoped that I bet again on the river and then he could re-raise me. This way he has some hope that I or the other player will call his huge bet. Why he check flop and call only river- he doesnt believe that something would beat his nut flush or king high flush and he hopes to get some action. The other possible explanation would be, that he really bluffed, but in NL 25 there´s no point bluffing 5$ to win 2,35$:)
      Pot is just too small even for LAG and maniacs
