      0,10/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with K:heart: , A:club:
      UTG calls $0,25, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1,25, 3 folds, BU calls $1,25, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($3,10) 3:heart: , 2:diamond: , 2:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $2,25, Hero raises to $3,40 (All-In), BU calls $1,15.

      Turn: ($9,90) K:diamond:
      River: ($9,90) K:club:

      Final Pot: $9,90

      I´ve seen that move by Alaton when he was still coaching. If BU doesn´t have pocket pair, then I´m ahead and I can go check/all-in for value.. Also I have 6 outs to my overcards and maybe one backdoor flush draw. So what do you think should I always bet/fold here or maybe it is acceptable check/all-in:P

      I would cbet or check/fold flop. After your preflop raise his donk bet indicates over pair, often you'r behind here and the amount that you raise on the flop won't scare him for sure.

      Hmm I like that play here, when you have some reads on your opponent. You have 6 Outs here + Backdoor Flushdraw and Backdoor Straightdraw. And a C-Bet would commit you anyway. So it depends what is higher in this spot. The chance that he fold, or the chance that he makes a (semi)bluff bet here with a Flushdraw, Straightdraw or Overcards against you´re ahead here?

      If second then check/All-In is nice, otherwise C-Bet/Call is better here.

      Hi kaitz20!

      I like this move as well. As Alaton said: If villain doesn't have an overpair you are ahead and even if he has it you have some outs. Plus a small fold equity this check/all-in should be a profitable move. Nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!
