    SUMMARY
    Total pot $23.51 | Rake $1.15
    Board :Th: :Jc: :4c: :6d: :Ad:
    Seat 1: Wost22 collected ($22.36)
    Seat 2: Hero (button) folded on the River
    Seat 3: Jus69 (small blind) folded before Flop
    Seat 4: DanishDalton (big blind) folded before Flop
    Seat 5: Addict96 folded before Flop (didn't bet)
    Seat 6: petrkros folded before Flop (didn't bet)


    So should I have checked back the turn here? I feel like my hand is just big enough to build a pot that its hard to fold the river if any of my cards hit, and also that the pot is big enough to get him to fold some hands that call the flop (TT, KQ, etc.). Maybe a check back to take the free card is better here? I guess if he has some kind combo draw (set plus flush or straight draw, flush or straight draw, etc.) he isn't folding. An offsuit ace is the worst card in the deck for me....

    Poker Hands:
    First, with this hand in position I think you can reraise preflop. Of course a call is never bad either, because your hand plays relatively well in a multiway pot with the nut suit and nice connectedness, but I think that it is strong enough to reraise for value preflop and isolate the action to HU, so you can win the pot postflop more frequently with a c-bet and make a profit.

    As you played it, I think you did great. Raise flop is almost 100% mandatory, where we are ahead of the top of his range here:

    board: TdJc4c
    Hand Equity Wins Ties
    Ac7c9s8s 53.13% 316,750 4,045
    JT**, JJ**, TT** 46.87% 279,205 4,045

    Turn is also great for us, because it gives us an additional gutshto and doesn't improve his calling range, so it's definitely a mandatory bet. First of all I do not think he has JJ, or TT on flop because he would probably jsut want to re-raise and get it in. That being said, if you do not expect to be check-raised on the turn it's a definite bet for value and to get him to fold hands with decent equity like KKxx, AAxx, AKQx. IF he happens to have TJxx, for example and is planning to c/r a safe turn...guess waht. WE are not afraid of it because we are flipping vs this hand:

    board: ThJc4c6d
    Hand Equity Wins Ties
    Ac7c9s8s 48.88% 292,112 2,306
    TJ** 51.12% 305,582 2,306

    SO, I bet turn there 100% of time. unless I am pretty sure he is going for a c/r on turn, then it's better to take the free card and know if we improve on river.

    The A river is pretty bad for you, and I would say AKQx, or KQ9x are a big part of his range so, easy fold. GJ.

    He claimed after the hand he had KcQc** - he's a reg, I doubt he's lying. I probably should have 3-bet preflop but I am still struggling a little with playing in three bet pots so I don't like to bloat them too much, though this is a strong candidate.

    Can we make a case for checking back the turn, because of implied odds, if we had a nut fd and a straight draw to the nuts instead? I would expect players to fold weaker draws on the turn here a decent amount of the time.
