      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Hand abspielen

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $7.60
      CO:
      $7.34
      BU(Hero):
      $46.69
      SB:
      $25.00
      BB:
      $25.00


      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, A.
      MP3 calls $0.25, CO folds, Hero raises to $1.25, SB calls $1.15, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($3) K, A, T (2 players)
      SB bets $2.00, Hero raises to $6.50, SB calls $4.50.

      Turn: ($16) 6 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($16) 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $7.50, SB calls $7.50.

      Final Pot: $31.

      20/7/2 over 50 hands

      Main question is regarding the turn. By betting Hero gets value and protection from worser 2pair, pair+SD / FD.
      On the other hand c/r would be ugly here since Hero have to go broke then with top two.

      Very drawy board.

      In my oppinion i think becouse of the protection i would raise more on flop beetween 9 and 10 and forse him to make mistake.


      I think he is not AA, KK, TT so straight or flush draw is the only option here. Against all other hands u are ahead. If he made his streight on flop we cannot do much about it. I just think folding here is to weak and we will win often enaugh.+

      quite ugly spot, I think going on pot control is fine, especially when you don´t want to play for stacks
