  • 2NL zoom, unhappy how I played

    http://www.boomplayer.com/nl/poker-h...483_9817B7BA01

    pre: standaard steal imo
    flop: Not folding a gutshot for 2 cents but should I have raised? I do wanna see the turn and calling is the cheapest way. He might be minbetting to induce a raise from me and 3bet that. cannot call 3bet...

    Turn: bingo, just called so he might bet OTR again with his almost entire range. Should I raise here? The board isn't very scary. The only hand that beats me is 4-8. Sure backdoor flush is possible but I thought is was pretty save to flatcall.

    River: flush didn't complete, so I have 2nd nuts. He makes a pretty big valuebet. Right after the hand, I kicked myself for not raising...should I?

    2nd question, If I would have raised, how much? I'm thinking 80 cents but than I'm potcommited so better to shove, right?

    Raising the turn doesn't really achieve much.

    I'd play the whole hand the same way. I don't really like raising the river vs that sizing because we can't really get called by worse.

      ***Removed*** only 48 and 89 beats him, he haz nutz and 48 players dont play much, so only 89

        LOL, I didn't even see 89 had me beat too ...darn, I really did not play my A-game last night.

        Now I'm happy with my play Raising river would be a big mistake, imo.
        89 make much more sense than 4-8 so I'm sure I could be beat quite often.

          i would try to reraise his donk bet OTF. you have position, with an A, back door flush draw and a gutshot.

            rkleefstra, I think this hand was played well. I would have played it the same way or else raised OTT for value.

            OTF: When the villain DONKbets, he can be betting quite a few combos,(77-66, 33, A7s, 98s, 87s, 76s, 65s, 54s, 42s) However, they min donk... So I would lean towards these combos,(55, A7s, 98s, 87s, 65s, 54s, 42s) Nut-ted and weak hands with draws.

            OTT: I think you can raise this turn for value. We know that the villain is a weak player, he min DONKbet into two players... So who knows, he could have sets too I guess. Lets stay with this range: 55, A7s, 98s, 87s, 65s, 54s... I can see A7, 87, 65, also pocket 5s that just hit a set... continuing as well as other sets if we give him sets. Raise to 0.24.

            OTR: If he just calls our raise OTT, they should check to us OTR. I think we should bet for thin value OTR. 1/2 pot or so.

              Hi rk,

              I think it's played well too. Raising the flop is an option as his min-donk bet is likely quite weak, but we do beat most of his air and draws with the ace high anyway, and can save this option for the turn which leaves more options open. Turn and river are played fine, not raising the river vs. this sizing.
