      Hi all

      Could I please get some advice on this very strange hand.

      Try and guess what he had? It was totally different to what I expected.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $1.88
      CO:
      $2.76
      BU:
      $5.13
      SB:
      $2.99
      BB:
      $2.96
      UTG1(Hero):
      $5.07
      UTG2:
      $5.00
      MP1:
      $2.65
      MP2:
      $3.74


      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with K, K.
      Hero raises to $0.20, 4 folds, CO calls $0.20, 2 folds, BB calls $0.15.

      Standard

      Flop: ($0.62) T, 4, 8 (3 players)
      BB bets $0.05, Hero raises to $0.20, CO calls $0.20, BB calls $0.15.

      5c bet into a 60c. I thought it was either nothing or a set. Don't know if I made the right move by raising 4X his bet. Should I have just raised to about $0.5? I think the reason why I did it was if he shoved over my raise, I might consider folding.

      Turn: ($1.22) Q (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.80, CO folds, BB raises to $2.56, Hero calls $1.76.

      He checks, so I bet, but unfortunately I get re-raised all in. I had to call because the pot was already pretty big by then. I was quite certain he made a set on the flop at this point.

      River: ($6.34) 8 (0 players)
      Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4.58.

      I would raise the flop... MUCH more, especially in a multiway pot. There are so many draws out there and he could always have a worse pp so I would make the raise at least pot size. Bet/shoving the turn.

      Hi,


      Yes, raise the flop bigger, big enough to protect from the draws out there and to be able to shove the turn against these halfstacks. I don't think i'm folding ever for 60bb even on a bad turn against two bad players without a crystal clear read on one of them, especially with the Kd.

      Qd9d?


      Hope it helps.

      Close guess, he had QTo.

      So lucky river card for me.

      I was expecting to be beat on the turn though after he re-raised me all in.
