      Final Pot: $11.20

      Freeplay from the big blind, first hand at the table, I flopped bottom two. I bet pot on the flop because I figured that bottom two pair on a two flush board was vulnerable, plus I'm out of position and I didn't start the hand with initiative. Was turn and river play OK? Should I have just pushed turn with an overbet? Or maybe bet 2/3 pot on turn to leave enough behind for a slightly bigger river bet?


      Hand 2:
      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (7 handed)

      Button ($0.95)

      CO ($25.55)

      [color:#666666]2 folds[/color], MP2 calls $0.25, CO calls $0.25, [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], Hero completes, BB checks.

      Flop: ($1) Q:spade: , T:heart: , 8:diamond: [color:#0000FF](4 players)[/color]
      [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $1[/color], BB folds, MP2 calls $1, CO folds.

      Turn: ($3) 8:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $2[/color], MP2 calls $2.

      River: ($7) 5:diamond: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      Final Pot: $7

      I've got a big stack here because I was waiting for the orbit to finish so I could leave. For that reason, I didn't want to risk a whole lot on the hand and decided to complete the SB and see a cheap flop. First, was the overall hand played OK? I know very little about BSS. Second, should I have value bet the river? Based on him just calling flop and turn, I put him on either a weaker Q or a draw. I thought I might induce a bluff by checking. Thoughts?

      Thanks,

      Hand 1.)
      I would bet $1.25 here to protect better against a Flushdraw or Straight Draw and to build the pot to have an easier decision to move All-In on the Turn then. ;)


      Hand 2.)
      You have nothing on the fliop (which was played ok), but from the Turn on, better play check/fold here.

      Hand 1 - Thanks

      Hand 2 - I'm confused...what do you mean nothing on the flop and check/fold the turn? I have top pair with a K kicker.

      Thanks,

      Hi Kknight!

      Hand 1) Flop play is ok, but push all-in on the turn.

      Hand 2) Well played! On the flop and turn you have to protect your hand against straightdraws (and flushdraws). On the river it's an easy check/call.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Oh I´m sorry I thought you had a OESD here, I was a bit tired when I looked at that hand, so I apologize again.

      Thanks to both of you!

      Not a problem Berliner, I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't misunderstanding.
