      1)
      Titan No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00/$2.00BB (Titan HH Converter by Kreatief)

      BB ($44.00) (Hero)
      UTG ($249.00)
      UTG+1 ($45.15)
      UTG+2 ($45.80)
      MP1 ($40.35)
      MP2 ($191.70)
      MP3 ($37.00)
      CO ($49.95)
      Button ($119.25)
      SB ($72.45)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7:heart: , 6:spade:
      1 folds, UTG+1 calls $2.00, 6 folds, SB calls $1.00, Hero checks,

      Flop: 4:heart: , Q:heart: , 8:club: ( $6 )
      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG+1 checks,

      Turn: 5:diamond: ( $6 )
      SB checks, Hero bets $6.00, 2 folds

      Final Pot: $11.70

      No flop action on a gutshot draw, which comes in on the turn. I have the only likely draw, the FD seems not to be there, but you can't be sure. I hoped someone might put me on a steal and come along for the ride. What is the best way to make money on this?

      MP2 ($45.50)
      MP3 ($201.60)
      CO ($204.85)
      Button ($34.60)
      SB ($183.80)
      BB ($651.50)
      UTG ($270.25)
      UTG+1 ($205.80)
      UTG+2 ($38.00)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A:diamond: , K:heart:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $8.00, MP2 calls $8.00, 4 folds

      Flop: 2:spade: , 5:spade: , 4:club: ( $19 )
      Hero bets $12.00, MP2 raises All-In $37.5, Hero raises All-In $32,

      Turn: K:club: ( $88.5 )


      River: T:spade: ( $88.5 )


      Final Pot: $85.50

      After the flop, I have 2 overcards and a gutshot, giving me 10 outs to improve by the river, odds of about 1.6:1. I make a 2/3 ps cbet hoping to take it down, but villain is all in, giving me pot odds of better than 3:1 for the call. He most likely has an overpair, but may have a set or a FD. Straight draw seems less likely. If he has the set, or makes the FD, then I won't always win when I do improve, but I think often enough to make this profitable.

      1. You've done the right thing, although I might have bet less there 4-5$.

      2. Is villain playing SSS as well or has he just cripled down?
      If he's playing SSS, I expect him to have 99-QQ here.
      If he's just a regular it might be even a wider range, from 66 to JJ. In case he's holding 66, even if you hit you gutshot is no good.
      And btw you're only getting 2.1:1? I'm folding this one though.

      Hi aciddrop!

      I also think that you played hand 1 well, but concerning the second hand: keep in mind that you have to discount your outs because of the FD and the possibility that your opponent holds a set. I would say that you don't have 10 outs but 7 which means you need 2,6:1 odds to call his push profitably. There are $31 already in the pot and you have to call $25.5 giving you 1,22:1 which is not enough for calling his push (even with 10 outs you would need 1,6:1). So a fold would have been better here.

      Good luck at the tables!

      2) Isn't it $20 into an effective pot of $63? We are also ahead of most FD's.

      EDIT: never mind, just realised that I said nothing that wasn't in the post above.

      Yes, right! Sorry guys. I ignored the amount of the all-in bet from MP2. My mistake :(

      Of course it's 63:20 or ~3:1 which means - based on my calculations - that your call was profitable because you need 2.6:1 odds if you have 7 outs.

      Good luck at the tables!

      2)@ MMa7. Villain here is playing with a short stack, but not SSS. SSS indicates raise or fold in this position. Whatever he is holding, against a SSS player, he has made a mistake. Had he reraised all in preflop, I may have taken him for a SSS player, and folded. Or maybe not. Once he called, I put him on a fairly wide range of hands, and postflop, an overpair seemed most likely.
