      Don´t see much point re-raiseing his min bets. To me it is wa/wb situation and I would call him down. Ace is not so nice card, I decided that I can´t beat anything and can´t call his 1/3rd pot bet.

      I would have defiently reraised his minbet to like 1.5 dollars, then take it from there on, if i would face alot of resistance i would lay it down of chorse.I think he bet so little because he had a flushdraw, wich me made on the river.You've got to follow trough with your hands man!

      What hand would I beat on the river;) I could re-raise 1,5$ but if he calls, I´m done with the hand. Calling min bet is just safe and if he does have the flush draw then he would call my raise anyway. Only hand that he might consider lay down is AK.

      Yes, if he calls you slow down.But if you call you're saying you have nothing.Its true that you dont beat any hand on the river, thats because flush draws are hit and AK hit his ace.You mentioned that if he has a flush draw he will call anyway, thats exactly what you want to happen!!How's calling a minbet safe, he could have tons of outs he could hit with super odds.True, only had he'd lay down is AK, but betting for the other guy to fold to me is only valuable when you're bluffing, you're betting to get the maximum value.

      You have position, use it.Im betting 1,5 on the flop if he calls ill be suspecios, id still bet 4 on the turn, (but thats just me).Check/call the turn is probably better. And the river, umm, depends on how much he's asking.


      By the look of the hand it looks that the guy had AK, or maybe 1010 99.

      Hi Kaitz20!

      I think you should raise on the flop to get information. If he calls or raises you, you are done with the hand. But if he has AK you are taking down the pot.

      Good luck at the tables!
