      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:

      SB:
      $25.34
      BB(Hero):

      MP2:
      $15.65
      MP3:
      $7.22
      CO:
      $25.54


      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, Q.
      MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.25, 2 folds, SB raises to $0.75, Hero calls $0.50, MP3 calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($2.25) 5, J, 2 (3 players)

      River: ($51.62) 6 (0 players)
      SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $34.53.

      VIllain:34/3/4,5/WTSD 42/40hands

      Flop:

      Is better to raise on this flop? Because if i call and turn is blank i do not really know where i stand with my hand and will be really hard to call another bet. The problem is that after me is another player with 25BB.

      Question 1: If we were headsup - would you raise?
      Question 2: If MP3 would be full stacked would you raise?
      Question 3: How would you play in this specific situtation
      Question 4: As played, turn is ok ?

      Thanks, E.

      1. -no i wouldnt raise, because he will fold all his bluffs and weaker hands and he will only call/raise you if he has a hand that beats yours.
      2. -no i wouldnt raise because the board is so damn dry that i dont have to protect hard against some kind of drawing hands. so a raise doesnt achieve much here either.
      3. i would call flop, and with that turn card its getting really ugly ;)
      he fires another big bet into a dry board... that sounds very strong to me.
      so right now i think you are beat.
      if he is unknown to me i would give him this range:
      JJ+,AJs,AJo
      against that range you have like 28% equity
      so i think against unknown players a fold is better then a shove
      against that agressive player i like the shove.
      because he might better some other hands (weaker ones) as well, and so you have some foldequity + some equity if he calls you.

      +1
      I think you can often take c/c flop, c/c turn, c/f river line against passive players if you don't improve.
      Against aggressive players c/rai turn is ok line, since they might b/c with worse hands than yours.
