      Hi


      This is a hand that I had a lot of difficulty to take a decision on the river.


      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      BB:
      $5,00
      UTG2:
      $6,68
      Hero:
      $5,40

      0,02/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:spade: , Q:club:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0,05, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0,25, 3 folds, BB calls $0,20, UTG2 folds.

      Flop: ($0,57) 7:heart: , Q:diamond: , K:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0,30, BB calls $0,30.

      Turn: ($1,17) A:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0,80, BB calls $0,80.

      River: ($2,77) 3:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $3,65 (All-In), Hero calls $3,65.

      Final Pot: $10,07



      I thought about a str8 with JT but then...but he also can have a pair of aces low kicker or even a weaker double pair. I called because in my oponion, i'm ahead against more than 50% of his range.

      thanks

      Hi.

      This might sound really weak. But I am folding here. No busted draws for him to bluff so donk/shoving the river says he has a hand that doesn't want you to check behind. You can rule out weaker Ax.

      He doesn't appear to raise preflop, so QQ, KK, AK are def in his range. QK, 77, JT, A7s are possible. Don't think he will be playing K7 or Q7 pre.

      Your just not going to be ahead enough to call profitably imo.

      Hi,

      I would bet more both flop and turn and it would easier for me to call.

      As played, probably I am folding here. Don't think he would do it with the worst.

      Hello,

      I would more often fold there, I don't think that we could make the Call profitable with long run, I don't really expect them to push there with pure air, more often 2pair+ type of hands, very often some straight vs passive opponents.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
