Crazy Sundays. Line check on 3 hands please
      #6565072 - 07/16/06 09:20 PM

Here are 3 hands that I am a little stuck with, how to play em?

Party Poker
No Limit Holdem Ring game
Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
5 players

Stack sizes:
UTG: $7.10
CO: $25.50
Button: $85.13
SB: $14.37
Hero: $24.65

Pre-flop: (5 players) Hero is BB with 7 8
UTG calls, CO calls, Button calls, SB calls, Hero checks.

Flop: 3 3 8 ($1.25, 5 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $2, 2 folds, Button calls, SB folds.

Turn: 6 ($5.25, 2 players)
Hero bets $4, Button calls.

River: Q ($13.25, 2 players)
Hero ??

Whats my play here? Should I block bet here, or should I check / call allowing missed flush draws to try and take it away. Or should I just check / fold thinking he has a 3 or a better 8 that won't go anywhere or overpair?

Final pot: $29.25

Line check with QQ on 3 flush board please

Stack sizes:
UTG: $15.63
CO: $24.90
Button: $56.30
SB: $15.32
Hero: $23.41

Pre-flop: (5 players) Hero is BB with Q Q
UTG calls, CO folds, Button calls, SB calls, Hero raises to $1.25, UTG calls, 2 folds.

Flop: 7 8 2 ($3, 2 players)
Hero bets $5, UTG raises all-in $14.13, Hero calls.

So I overbet the pot looking for some1 with a pair to think I was mucking around with a big club. Then I was priced in to call?

AQ, played badly?

Stack sizes:
Hero: $42.76
CO: $28.09
Button: $10.11
SB: $30.40
BB: $21.10

Pre-flop: (5 players) Hero is UTG with A Q
Hero raises to $1, CO calls, 3 folds.

Flop: 5 A T ($2.35, 2 players)
Hero bets $2, CO calls.

I hate getting floated

Turn: T ($6.35, 2 players)
Hero bets $4, CO raises to $8, Hero calls.

Uh-oh, should I play back at that minraise. Looks like he is trying to build a pot with a set turned boat or just tripped his T

River: 9 ($22.35, 2 players)
Hero checks, CO is all-in $17.09, Hero ?

Should I have blocked bet?

I am quite new at 6-max and would like to respond to these before I read any other responses. So if any of my advice is horrible I would like criticism.

Hand 1
I would check the turn here. Your hand is not that big, and you don't want to play a big pot. If villain bets close to pot, I would fold the turn. As played I think that you have to check and fold the river.

Hand 2
I think this depends on reads on villain. He could be doing this with the A or any high pocket pair with a . I don't mind calling the all-in as long as villain is loose.

Hand 3
I hate facing turn mini-raises like this. I think that the same principle as hand 1 applies. Your hand is quite weak and maybe check-call turn would be good. When faced with this situation I often 'know' that I should fold the turn, but can't make myself respect the miniraise. Baluga's Theorum probably applies here in that TP facing a raise on the turn is probably no good.

You have to fold to this river bet, and I don't think that you should block bet.

Hope some of this helps.

after this session I decided to call it a day, I think I was tilting a bit. Took back to back set vs flush draw beats etc. So yeah, looking at these hands looks like tilt.

hand 1: villain was a call station
hand 2: yeah, was a pretty random overbet. should I just bet pot and then consider folding to an all in?
hand 3: I hate folding to minraises, the thought of giving them any respect pisses me off

Hand 1: Whats with the overbet on the flop? I'd make it a PSB. Your hand isn't that great, you say villain is a calling station, what types of hands is he calling with? If you think he's got big cards and willing to go to the river with them, fire out a bet. If you bet the turn and he calls, the river is a c/f I think.

Hand 2: Raise more pf, I'd make it 1.75-2. As played, I'd lead the flop with your standard size c-bet. If he comes over the top, it's read dependent as to call/fold. The way you played it, I think you have to call his ai, although Im not sure I follow your logic of wanting people to think you have a big club

Hand 3: I'd fold after the minraise on the turn, definately on the river, you're not beating much
