      MP2:
      $15.97
      MP3:
      $2.90


      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, A.
      MP2 calls $0.10, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, BU folds, SB calls $0.45, BB folds, MP2 calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.6) 2, 8, A (3 players)
      SB checks, MP2 bets $0.40, Hero raises to $1.70, SB folds, MP2 calls $1.30.

      Turn: ($5) 3 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($5) J (2 players)
      MP2 bets $5.30, Hero calls $5.30.

      Final Pot: $15.6.

      I think I raised to little on the flop and made a bad call on the river.

      I put him on A,8/A,2/A,3/2,2/8,8/flush so I think I beat 15 combinations.

      Sorry to say but he is defintly on a flush draw and not set or Ax combo.

      A set would just go in.. and Ax hands are so rare here.

      Hi,


      If you really think he has all these made hands in his range for bet/calling that flop so weak, you should just bet the turn and get it in.

      As played on the river i don't really see how he could be bluffing and unless he's overbetting for value with a worse hand on a 3-flushed board you're likely behind. If you are going to call a river potsize bet unimproved then you're probably better off just betting the turn yourself. He might try and slowplay his flushes giving you the chance to boat up and stack him, and even if he doesn't and shoves on you you're only calling off 30bb more than you called off on that river as played, but this time with still a street to get there and while possibly getting value from worse hands at the same time.


      Hope it helps.
