      I would like to read some comments about this hands, I was multitabling, I was not paying attention to player's stats or patterns. I usually go broke here, this time I only lost 55 BB.

      This hand and AA, KK, in early o middle position, with a caller behind me, are giving me a lot of trouble.

      I think my opponent made a good call pre-flop, a semi-bluff raise on the turn.

      I wonder if I had to bet on the flop and check/raise, check/fold the turn?

      What do you think about the check/call on the river?

      Thanks!

      I would bet flop, bet turn, bet river.

      As played, it's very hard to fold turn or river. Not betting the flop, your hand is very underrepresented, so the aggressive BU can raise the turn with a wide range. River he can be value betting a flush, 88, AQ, AJ, stuff like J8s. Also, if BU was bluffing the turn he will likely keep betting on the river scare card.

      Check/calling river is fine.

      This. Make sure you make some note on BU that he will raise combo hands on the turn in position, it's very useful to know that.


      Hope it helps.
