      wanted to give the expression on the flop that I was on a pair aswell and didn't want to see another clubs, checked the turn to give expression that my pair wasn't that good after all, and then raise again at the river. any other good way to play this kind of hand?

      I had a note on this player "called a bluffbet on river with bottom pair because he thought the bet was too big and suspected something" so that's why the big bet on river. I guess something like 4$ on river would've been good? (full house would've raised, flush would've maybe raised, straight would've called, trips would've called?)

      1.Raise this preflop. You could make a slightly bigger reraise on flop. I think it is an ok hand , depends on how fishy your opponent is.
      2. Bet against passive opponent , play check/raise against someone who would most likely float you. But make sure you dont give a free card. You could maybe bet something like half the pot but 4$ doesnt seem like a good option.
      3. I think you should fold this preflop , its rather loose to play 97s from MP2. I guess its ok if the table is pretty passive and the pots dont get raised much preflop. Your opponent checking on the river prolly means that he is afraid of the card that came , so i am not sure that such an overbet will get called. Better to make a valuebet i think. If you think that your opponent will call this 12$ overbet often enough i guess you can make it.

      Think I'll need pokertracker and pokerace to get better image of the players to be able to make good sized bets. Got over 2k pp, so maybe I'll get license someday soon :rolleyes:

      the third hand I just limped in because I hadn't played hand for ages on that table and I wanted to losen up the image a bit.

      but thanks for the comment, really appreciated since I just started BSS some days ago.

      Hand 1: I would raise preflop against one limper. I also would raise the turn (~$6-7). And on the river I would raise more. He is betting three times so he seems to have a hand. You want to get value.

      Hand 2: I think you played it well.

      Hand 3: fold preflop. As played: Flop is ok. Turn: I would minraise here. You want to play a big pot but you dont want to scare your opponent away. The River: If you have this read: go with it! Thats fine. Against a "normal" opponent I would bet ~$5.

      Good luck at the tables!
