      Im not 100% sure if it was right to fold, the immediate pottodds wasnt that good but there was 5 others behind me to act.

      Hand3:

      Was this fold good? Im not sure if this was the right thing to do, but it felt like i was beat with another K on the turn and a J on the river.

      Hand4:

      Perhaps I shouldve gone with my first choice of raising instead of just checking? I didnt feel all too confident to get them to fold so I went with the check, and I reasoned that it would probably be more problematic on the flop in a big pott with this hand.

      1. I think you could call here , although your position is bad and you could get sandwiched between raises. You also have a backdoor flush draw and the pot odds arent too bad for you especially if you count some implieds in as well.

      2. 2/3rd pot bet should be fine.

      3. Against an unknown i would definately call there , your check behind can induce many bluffs on the river. You dont have many hands on your opponent , so i guess you cant make a concrete judgement about his play but he seems to be very tight and passive , so you could fold against him. I doubt he has a straight with QT , that would be a bad call preflop and on flop as well. He might be holding AK which seems probable by the way he plays the hand and given that he is very tight/passive against which you are way behind or KQ(Maybe even a set of 3s). Otherwise you should be ahead or tieing with him. (I dont see him calling the flop with JJ).

      4. I am not a fan of that hand either , especially OOP , but i guess you could shorten the field of opponents. Usually you can take a pot down with a contibet ,and if you dont , without having hit a pair you easily checkfold it.

      3. Yeah I really thought he had a K, but perhaps I shouldve called the bet on the river, I know a check behind on the turn might induce a bluff, the same thing with checking on the river to the opponent.

      Thx for the feedback :)

      Hi Snowylee!

      Hand 1: I would call here because you have also a backdoorflushdraw and your implied odds arent that bad.

      Hand 2: nice hand!

      Hand 3: Against this opponent you can fold to a 3/4 potsizebet on the river. I think he is too passiv to bet a hand which is worse than yours.

      Hand 4: Nice hand! I dont like to raise KQo in the BB when there are so many limpers. Often you are playing against two or more opponents out of position in a raised pot. You often have to fold if you dont hit the flop.

      Good luck at the tables!
