  • Did I play the hand fine?

    It is $1.10 MTOPS #27 Turbo event with 3000 starting stack and 5mins blind level. Did I play this hand correctly? I was thinking of betting the river because I thought he has some under pockets like 55-TT or AT. Coz I am sure he will never check trips or full house on the river to me. But if I would have betted the river thinking I have the best hand he might have still called me as he made Queen pair. How should I have played this hand street by street?

    Hi adi

    If the river was a blank then we would certainly value bet but the Qc completes a lot of draws and it makes hands like QJ/Q10/AQ improve. The problem with betting the river is that it's going to take a very special type of opponent to look you up with any hand worse than Jx. Value betting this river is a bit too thin imo.

    Cheers, Chris.
