      3comma3 bets $1, Hero goes all-in $4.25, Kalyazin84 says "lol", 3comma3 calls $3.25

      Since this was a session where I felt how crewl poker can really be, I was pretty much on tilt at this point, so thats why I called her bet on river and I know I shouldnt.
      However I hit my out on river I was more than happy to shove.
      My happines diidnt last long :( .
      So I wonder should I play this any other way?

      Hey asmirovic,

      You could raise 3BB preflop or potsize on the flop as a bluff, because SB opencomplete is very weak and you might take the pot down right there. On the other hand, if you decided not to take a stab, then just check/fold. Villain bets potsize on the turn and you have just a gutshot, so just fold.

      As played, I would shove river as well, a worse straight/TP/2-pair/set will probably still call you on those limits and the only hand that beats you is QJ.

      Regards,

      How did you knew what he had (QJ i mean ) :f_biggrin:
      I dont like bluff on the flop with nothing, since they call it much too often and I tend to findmyself often in trouble.
      But deffinetley should fold hes bet on turn!

      THx bro much appreciated
