      Full Tilt Poker - No Limit Hold'em Cash Game - $0.05/$0.10 Blinds - 8 Players - (LegoPoker Hand History Converter)

      SB: $3.65
      BB: $21.50
      UTG: $5.75
      UTG+1: $3.05
      MP1: $2.55
      Hero (MP2): $9.95
      CO: $1.55
      BTN: $2.65

      Preflop: Hero is dealt 9 9 (8 Players)
      3 folds, Hero calls $0.10, CO calls $0.10, BTN calls $0.10, SB calls $0.05, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.50) 9 T K (5 Players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.30, CO folds, BTN calls $0.30, SB calls $0.30, BB folds

      Turn: ($1.40) 5 (3 Players)
      SB bets $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, BTN raises all-in to $2.25, SB folds, Hero calls $1.35

      River: ($6.20) 7 (2 Players - 1 All-In)

      Pot Size: $6.20 ($0.60 Rake)

      Results in white:

      BTN had Jd Qc (a straight, King high) and WON (+$2.95)
      Hero had 9c 9d (three of a kind, Nines) and LOST (-$2.65)


      I made a continuation bet on flop which i think was OK to find out where I am at but I'm unsure about the turn. Maybe it was better to call the turnbet instead of raising it? And what about calling the all-in? It costs me 1.35$ to call a 4.85$ pot... So i must win 1:3,5 times... And I had some outs, 10 if i'm correct. (Correct me if i'm wrong with the maths. Is this a justified call or should I fold this which is a bit weak i think? It's a problem I face a lot last days. Made set on a straight/flush board.

      Nice hand. Both SB and BU (don´t know why Full Tilt poker calls it BTN) were short stacks. Your turn raise were good and it´s an easy call, because you are pot committed:)

      raise 0,40 flop
      And at Nl10 you never fold a set only on 4 suited/ 4 connected boards.
      You have 10 outs if he has the straight but this is unlikely
      Kx, straightdraws, flushdraws 2 pairs push too.

      This flop is likely to have hit your opponents so bet pot on flop for value and protection. Raise about $2 on the turn for similar reasons.

      BTW, always include stack sizes in your post.

      @ Nunki: Stacksizes are included at the beginning of my post if my eyes are still ok :)

      @ Kaitz: When are u really pot committed? When > 50% of your stack is in? What if your opponent has >50% of his stack in and he pushes, are u then also committed to call because of he could be pushing with everything?

      Good question. I also sometimes wondering about that. Imo in deep stacks it is 50%. Here your pot odds are just too good to fold, like you said 1:3,5 and even if he has straight, you have odds to improve. But I´m just beginner and maybe some experienced player could give better advise.

      You´r not commited here because of your stack but because of your opponents. Getting 1:4 with a set is never a fold on any levels thats why your commited.

      Thanks, I can now see stack-sizes.

      I think I can see $0.60 rake in a $6.20 pot or is it my eyes again. Thats roughly 2PTBB/100 over and above a "standard rake".

      That's low limit on FullTiltPoker. Very high rake and unfortunately I opened an account there before Pokerstrategy.com came up with the rakeback offer so I don't get any rakeback :(

      I think you should be raising that hand from that position preflop :rolleyes:
      After flop bet pot on drawy board , and ofc you reraise the turn. As i see it you have the 2nd nuts (Anyone with TT and KK would have raised preflop) and i would have prolly invested even a full stack there if it was needed. Just bad luck.

      @ Undercover: my openening chart doesn't allow me to open with 99 in MP :D

      But I had some good luck as well today as I've hit the magic hand op PP and won it for $300 :P not bad for NL $10 :)
