      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):
      $10.30
      SB:
      $9.80
      BB:
      $6.00
      MP2:
      $15.10
      MP3:
      $18.85
      CO:
      $10.00


      Preflop: Hero is BU with J, 8.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, SB calls $0.35, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.9) T, 3, 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.50, SB calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($1.9) T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($1.9) 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.90, SB raises to $2.20, Hero calls $1.30.

      Final Pot: $6.3.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, tens and eights(Jh 8h).
      SB shows a full-house, twos full of tens(2d 2c).

      SB wins with a full-house, twos full of tens(2d 2c).

      flop was a standard cbet.

      should i have bet on the turn? T would have shown to him that i was unlikely to hold on to a T. at the same time, it was also unlikely that he held on to the T. i was planning on checking behind so that i can bluff induce on the river, to call a bet or to bet the river.

      the re-raise was funny though. does it show that he held the T?

      Your turn reasoning is sound to me - I would take that line too. But I would not bet the river myself - its too thin value for me and is certainly not needed to beat the limit.

      Certainly a fine choice. Depending on what type of player he is you can likely change your mind and bet/fold the turn, think very passive guys who will call twice with any flushdraw/gutshots but rarely bluff the river.


      Hope it helps.
