      I timed out here not really too sure of how to proceed. I wasn't too sure how this one might play out post-flop.

      Did I play this OK? Size of my flop raise?

      1) I think in 7-handed JJ is pretty good. Maybe you could reraise here, he bets over here, I think people usually do that to protect their ~mid pockets.

      2) Raise more on flop. about 1$ I think. If you get called, check/call is the play after that I think.

      3) Nh, I think you could reraise turn or raise river for more value.

      Hi Nunki!

      Hand 1) I would call here and see what the flop brings

      Hand 2) Raise more here (~1.20). On turn and river you played it well

      Hand 3) I would also raise on turn or river. There are two flushdraws out there (on the turn). And his minbet on the river shows a lot of weakness.

      Good luck at the tables!

      1) I felt that on any flop without a J I wouldn't know where I was without committing a lot of chips. I was set to win little, lose lots/get bluffed out.
      Perhaps I was a little weak there.

      So $4 in the pot $8 behind (on the flop) how do we play:

      a) We have an OP.

      b)A-high flop.

      c)K-high flop.

      d)Q-high flop.


      3) No-one concerned about the min-c/r on the turn following three streets of betting from us?

      Yes I should have raised more in hand 2. My reasoning at the time was not to over-commit in case of a big re-raise from behind. I suppose it is better to make a proper size re-raise and charge those lone-spades the full price.

      a): bet $3 and push it
      b) c) and d): bet $3 and fold to any action

      Good luck at the tables!

      1) i call pf as well c/rai a lot of flops, but against very tight 3-bettors a fold is ok.
      a) oftern c/rai, or c/c, c/c, with deeper stacks i often c/c, c/f
      b) c/f as a default, never bluff the donkey
      c) tough, depends on his range, possibly c/c, c/f or c/f
      d) here i like a c/rai because AK will very often bet and we can fold out a lot of equity.

      2) raise flop ps, bet turn bigger, river i bet 4 vlaue against lone A given villains' wts and because it is 3-handed meaning they will be more hesitant to bluff

      3) raising turn/river is burning money imo. his c/r on the turn is strong and often we are beat. Still folding is not something i like to do against him.
      i would say call turn, call moderate river bet > fold turn >>> push turn or raise river. We will see a set here rather often, sometimes AA but possibly QQ, JJ or a stupid bluff.
