      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q:spade: , A:spade:
      Hero raises to $4.00, 4 folds, BB raises to $12.00, Hero calls $8.00.

      Flop: ($24.50) 2:diamond: , 4:spade: , 6:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $26, Hero raises to $85.50 (All-In), BB calls $59.50.

      Turn: ($195.50) 4:diamond:
      River: ($195.50) T:club:


      Final Pot: $195.50



      First horrible hand , first of all should i be calling 3 bets preflop with such a hand? His big bet on flop doesnt make call a profitable option , im not sure if i can create any fold equity either with my all-in ^^ but i decided to gamble it up. However if he is holding a PP up to JJ it should be 50-50 and AA KK QQ owns me.

      Horrible hand #2 , notice how the same cards have dropped on the flop as hand #1 ^^. This board shouldnt really be very dangerous , should i anyway reraise him big on the flop or try to raise on turn. I think i have to opt for the first option.

      How to react preflop , and is it worth taking a stab on turn or play check/fold all the way?

      Minraise preflop is a wrong button mistake , i cant fold to the minreraise , but i dont know where i stand for the whole hand. Should i play any different?

      1: Personally I fold AQ here... Although... You were in position... So its tough... If I get one caller inbetween then I call here... Flop plays itself... Prob up against QQ or KK... In which case your not in HORRIBLE shape at least...

      2:P layed well... Your in position to raise on turn, if he fires #2... You ahead whole way... He may have river'd a higher set... But NHNH well played ! :P

      3: Check // Fold whole way... Even if he checks to river, you can only beat 77 or under... Or lead flop for 1/2 Pot, he calls, be done with the hand unimproved

      4:Raise turn to 20 // 30 and you MIGHT take it down... If he just calls... Then CHeck // Check river and you can expect to lose to 10J or 10Q... My guess he doesnt call with 77 88 99 or AQ//AK

      5: This hand is harder to play cause he doesnt have a full stack... And you know the button is calling behind you... But... I would still raise the flop... 35.. Then... Call a shove I guess... I dont know... His re raise preflop... Either means, suited connector squeeze... Or... QQ+... So... Its basically read dependant.. But assuming hes like most players at this level... I'd stick it in on the turn.. His bet on the turn is whats weird...Half a pot... Which looks like he wants to get called... Which could me AK with one heart... Or QQ+ with one heart... I dunno... Interested to see what Pushkin says about this hand :)

      Hi undercover82!

      Hand 1) If you call his preflopraise, you have to with it here especially after his huge flopbet. Normally this bet is an overpair which want to protect against flushdraws so I think you have a lot of fold equity if you move all-in here. Nice hand!

      Hand 2) Raise to ~$25 on the flop. You have a big hand and want to play a big pot. In addition you have to protect your hand against flushdraws and straight draws (even though it is not very likely).

      Hand 3) Fold preflop because you need to have left 15-times the amount of his raise left in your stack to call profitably for setvalue. You have only ~10-times the amount of his raise left in your stack.

      Hand 4) I would raise on the flop here to see where I'm at. If I get called or raised it's an easy fold.

      Hand 5) I would raise on the flop and fold to any further action.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Concerning hand 3 , i know that i dont have set value but its a blind battle and 88 should be a strong enough hand to play in this situation. Hence my question about the flop.

      On hand 5 , what amount should i raise ? if i make a proper raise around 45-50$ he doesnt have much more than that if he goes all in (For 50 dollars i only have to call 15 more if he goes allin)

      Concerning hand 3: I like your turnplay. Flop is ok, too.
      Concerning hand 5: You are right. Didn't look at the chipstacks. In this case I think you played it well. But against a bigstack I would have played it differently.
