      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      MP1 36/18 45 hands
      BB 12/11 125 hands

      The BB raise looks strong and I think my 10 outs were't clean, in this 3-way pot I could have 6 clean outs, so I should fold it and see what hands they played with and make a note :)
      I think I played this hand recklessly - looked at the board and said:2OC, GS, push!
      and that was wrong :)

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      First mistake: Raise to $1.00, it makes it less likely the BB will call with a marginal hand.

      Second Mistake: If you miss the board in a 3 handed hand always check fold unless you have a strong draw. There is no way you have 10 clean outs here unless the guy has QJ. If your going to be a good player you have to learn to fold big hands and know when you are beat.

      Hey oedipa,

      you need 39% equity to be profitable against BB which you would have with 10 outs + BDFD, but number of your clean outs is more likely about 7 than 10 and with the fact there is still another opponent to act behind you I just let this one go as it will result in breakeven or even -EV play and borderline situations are better avoided.

      And you're right, it's always smart to make a note in the end, because you never know when they'll come in handy. :)
