      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $5.67
      BU(Hero):
      $18.67
      SB:
      $5.85
      BB:
      $14.03
      MP2:
      $10.79
      MP3:
      $10.57


      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, K.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, SB raises to $0.35, BB folds, Hero raises to $0.55, SB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($1.15) T, J, K (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.30, SB calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1.75) Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.40, SB raises to $5.00, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.15.

      I know I underbet the 4bet preflop, but I just wanted to entice the guy in to the pot, because he was quite the fish and I guess I also underbet the flop now reviewing the hand. Played 70% of hands, raised about 20% over a 140 hand sample, so I had him labeled as "TARGET".

      But the question is.... What do I do on the turn?

      God d... I misplayed my moster hand AGAIN gah! Such a stupid play by me. So many underbets >__<
      I guess I was afraid of the flop.

      First - bigger raise preflop - about $1
      Second - Basing on how you played it you should bet about $0,9 on the flop 0 there are a lot of draws and you don't want anyone to be drawing here.
      Third - there are to ways to play on the turn - bet/fold or bet/push. You should bet about $1,3 and you may fold to a big raise. You still have 10 outs to beat any straight/flush.

      Hi,


      The fact that he is a huge fish mostly means if he likes his hand he'll continue with it, whether you make it $0.2 more or $0.7 more, so don't fall into the trap of underbetting your strong hands against players like him.

      Agreed on First and Second. Third is mostly irrelevant, if you don't screw up the first two streets you won't get into that situation again.


      Hope it helps.
