      Fold, you're chopping at best and it's costing you .40 to get back .35. Easiest fold ever IMO, any club beats you here even just a crappy 3 :club:

      agree, trips is a good hand, but not on a table with a complete flush as you probably understand. On the river you hand is as bad as 3 :heart: 4 :diamond: and the only thing you can hope for if you call his riverbet is that he is bluffing and then you will split the pot, but there is no way it is worth that risk so you better fold

      Hi,

      as played fold river.
      But I'd play it like this:
      preflop: isolationraise to 0,30$
      flop: pot
      turn: 3/4 pot if villain checks (according to a theorem, that the one who first bets into a 4card-1suited board wins very often)
      if getting raised -> all-in and hope that one of your 10 outs hit... :-)

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      I agree with that up to the turn play, where it becomes dicey because we risk getting raised off out boat draw if we turn our set into a bluff at that point. 3$ behind to win a $0.65 pot seems like a lot to jam the turn with when we're always he doesn't fold to our turn bet. If you'll think he'll minraise then it's okay because we can probably call in position with decent odds, but if he raises big or shoves it'll suck. I'd rather try and boat up, i'm not that worried about being bluffed by a 13/2/1.4 when he very likely has a club anyway.


      Hope it helps.
