      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (9 handed)

      MP3 ($38.90)
      CO ($28.20)
      Button ($25.45)
      SB ($9.25)
      BB ($15)
      UTG ($23.30)
      UTG+1 ($28.85)
      Hero ($5)
      MP2 ($27.70)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with J:heart: , J:club: .
      [color:#666666]2 folds[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $1[/color], [color:#666666]5 folds[/color], BB calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($2.10) 4:club: , 2:heart: , 4:spade: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      BB checks, [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $1.5[/color], [color:#CC3333]BB raises to $4[/color], Hero calls $2.50 (All-In).

      Turn: ($10.10) 7:club: [color:#0000FF](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      River: ($10.10) K:spade: [color:#0000FF](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      Final Pot: $10.10

      Is it correct to call the check-raise on the flop without reads?

      Thanks,
      Kknight

      P.S. - I just about blew a gasket after this suckout...I'll share the results a bit later.

      Seems fine to me, you can´t make great laydowns with SSS:)

      Great call in my point of view, since its way more likely that he holds a higher pocket pair or do that with Overcards, then with a 4, Pocket 22 or a higher Overpair then yours. If he has you beat on the flop, its bad luck, but you made the right decision. Nice play. :)

      Hi Kknight!

      I agree with Kaitz20 and Berliner1982. You played it well. He can easily push a smaller pocket pair here. Let me guess what he had: 77? ;)

      Good luck at the tables!

      I'm guessing K2.

      Thanks to everyone for the replies.

      Puschkin gets the prize...he had 77 :D Good read!!

      Aciddrop - I think I would have quit if he had K2 LOL ;) That'd be even a worse beat than 77...[EDIT] well, maybe not...I guess with K2 he'd have been drawing to 5 outs rather than 2...but it still would've been pretty upsetting ;)

      I meant to put this into Equilator this weekend and see what my equity is on the flop, but I didn't get a chance. I'm guessing he probably put me on overcards and figured he was way ahead. Oh well :)

      Thanks again,
