      I dont see a forum for sample hands from NL2 so I'm posting it here. Sorry mods.

      I'd really like some feedback on how I played, this hand still bothers me:

      PREFLOP: MP1 is loose (34VP/19PFR) so i decided to 3bet him since i have a good hand and his range is quite big. BB is regular.

      FLOP: I get TPTK with nuts flush draw and bet pot. Now i dunno should I have shoved with 3 players still active?

      TURN: ouch a dangerous card but i decide to ignore it as i cant imagine a tight regular calling my 3bet with a nine. I have almost half stack already in pot and i still have TPTK with nuts flush draw so i go for it

      You're in the right forum, "until 0.05/0.1" means "from the lowest stakes up to nl10".

      Rebuy to 100bb preflop and 3-bet bigger to around $0.25-0.30 if you think he'll call you with worse, which he likely will. As played hard to say exactly what the BB "regular" would call you smallish 3bet with, most likely some kind of pocket pair or high suited connectors, sometimes he's slowplaying a premium.

      As played on the flop you hit the nuts on the flop so you're happy getting some action, i'd bet around $0.45. It's enough to shove the turn even if only BB calls, and it'll give him more room to possibly jam on his own if he happens to have some kind of good made hand he wants to protect, a good draw or something in-between like QTs.

      As played on the turn you don't have much of a choice, check/folding makes no sense and check/calling will make you go up against a stronger range than shoving yourself. Make a note on what BB shows you and try to extract useful information. What he called the 3bet with preflop is interesting, same thing for the fact that he didn't just shove the flop into you.

      Hope it helps.
