      0,05/0,10 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K, K
      UTG+2 calls $0,10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0,50, 4 folds, UTG+2 calls $0,40.

      Flop: ($1,15) 3, K, K (2 players)
      UTG+2 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($1,15) 6 (2 players)
      UTG+2 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($1,15) J (2 players)
      UTG+2 checks, Hero bets $0,28, UTG+2 calls $0,28.

      Final Pot: $1,71

      UTG+2 Mucked A7o
      This is all what I could do with my opponet, because he was very tight, so any bet on flop or turn and he fold, but bet on river he thought that I was bluffing.

      If he called with A7o from UTG+2 and also called a raise with it, I don't think he's very tight. Ofcourse you can slowplay if you like, but then the pot will remain very small. I'd already bet something like 0,40$ on turn, and if he calls, bet a bit more on river. but anyway, very nice hand :D

      Hi Cru3LL7!

      First of all: Don't post any results. The comments you get might be biased.

      "Play big pots with big hands and small pots with small hands". Because this quotation is correct you have to try to build a pot. Slowplay on flop might be ok, but on the turn I would bet. If he doesnt hit anything and folds its bad luck. But most of the time you get a call (even from A7o) especially on these limits ("there could appear an ace on the river" ;) )

      Good luck at the tables!

      Hi Cru3LL7!

      Never slowplay aces!!! It's just a pair and pairs are very vulnerable in No Limit! I would bet the flop (~0.35) and also push all-in on the turn.

      Good luck at the tables!

      1) Is this good slowplay in preflop if MP3 was raised 12 times in a row everytime with any cards?So I knew that he will raise and this time too :rolleyes:

      Hi Cru3LL7!

      Hand 1) If you know that MP3 in raises every hand preflop - and only then - this is a correct play.

      Hand 2) nice hand!

      Btw: Please open another thread for a new hand. It's easier to analyze. Thanks.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Lots people seem to play that way with a big pocket pair :
      raise pre-flop (of course), bet the flop and shove on the turn if not scary.
      Unless the pot is already big, that does not seem to be the right play IMO, because any pair (with a card community card) would probably fold... Finally the only situation where you might be called is when you are dominated (2 pairs or set).
      So the outcome is :
      - win a small pot when ahead
      - lose your stack when dominated

      In this kind of situation I keep betting between 2/3 pot or pot on turn and river to make a decent pot and protect my hand without being that committed if the caller sucks out on my PP.

      Is that a bad play ? Can you explain me the reason why you play this way?


      Edit : i was talking about Cru3LL7 pocket aces. I just saw that he was short stack, which explains why shove on the turn (and i totally agree with this move)
