      Hi,


      Please make a thread per hand unless they're closely related, it's a pain in the ass for everyone to manage threads with multiple hands in them :)


      #1

      I'd bet it, it's not very likely he has a better hand at that point, most likely he has a busted draw or a dominated Kx hand. With no indication that he's a bluff machine with draws, I just err on the side of making straightforward value-plays and bet about $3.3.

      #2

      Considering his stack size it's ok to put him all-in. If he has a Q he's not folding, if he has a weak 6x/pocket pair he's most likely folding anyway, if he has a draw he's not putting the rest in on the river unless he outdraws you. There aren't many upsides to betting smaller unless you know he might fold Qx or he's liable to call twice with worse than JJ.

      #3

      Fine by me, not worth it unless you have a reason to think he's nuts.

      #4

      If you think he can fold some kind of pair it's not that bad, but generally trying to bluff the fish off anything but air isn't such a good strategy. I'd just call given those odds, we might be ahead sometimes, we have 6 outs most of the time, we have position, and we get to see what he does on the turn after ~minbetting, which is useful information even if we end up having to fold.

      #5

      Well you should 3-bet preflop, you don't want to see a 4-way flop with AKo really, and since MP2 doesn't need a premium to raise over the limper, it's a standard squeeze spot with that.

      Postflop you're only beat if MP3 slowplayed KK+ or has exactly 88/22. This is probably a call if you have any reason to think he can do that with a random Kx and/or diamonds, just because he's bad. I don't mind folding if you view him as tight and unlikely to spazz.

      #6

      You could also 3-bet preflop here especially if there are some fish in the bunch of players already in the pot, tho calling is also ok.

      On the flop I could see myself just calling the raise if MP3 was fullstacked, since when we get such action on that board we're not really in good shape even if we're ahead of the two players. Given that he's shortstacked and thus bad, shoving is better unless MP2 is very tight.


      Hope it helps.
