      Full Tilt Poker - No Limit Hold'em Cash Game - $0.05/$0.10 Blinds - 6 Players - (LegoPoker Hand History Converter)

      SB: $9.15
      BB: $1.80
      UTG: $18.45
      Hero (MP): $10.00
      CO: $18.40
      BTN: $3.85

      Reads: This guy was a shortstack so I cant really see me doing it any other way than I did here. However, what if he wouldve been a deepstack with at least 80bb effective? Still raising his donkbet on the flop right? But perhaps a bit smaller than potsize? Maybe only around $2.50 - $2.80?
      And if he then 3bets, fold or go all the way? If he calls I would fire the turn as well, at least if its a blank. Should I fire the turn even if its a spade making the flush? Im really unsure about this so feedback mucho appreciated.

      Preflop: Hero is dealt 7 8 (6 Players)
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.35, CO calls $0.35, BTN folds, SB calls $0.30, BB calls $0.25

      Flop: ($1.40) 4 7 8 (4 Players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.60, Hero raises to $3.20, 2 folds, BB calls all-in for $0.85
      Uncalled bet of $0.00 returned to Hero

      Turn: ($4.30) 4 7 8 T (2 Players - 1 All-In)

      River: ($4.30) 4 7 8 T 3 (2 Players - 1 All-In)

      Pot Size: $4.30 ($0.40 Rake)

      And there we have it, the most interesting hands from my eveningsession :O

      Hi snowylee!

      Pretty standard play against a short stack. Nice hand!
      If you play against a big stack you should bet potsize as well because you have to protect your hand against straight- and flushdraws. If he 3bets you can go all the way. Too often you will see a flushdraw and/or straightdraw and/or overcards. If he calls you and the turn is a blank: bet big again. If it is a spade I would play bet/fold to see if he really has the flush. Hope this helps.

      Good luck at the tables!
