UTG+1: $93.70
UTG+2: $17.50 - 100/31 / 0% steal / 18.2% 3bet / 1.0 AF / 32 hands
MP1: $49.10
MP2: $15.40 - 56/12 / NA steal / 10% 3bet / 2.8 AF / 25 hands
Hero (CO): $74.35 - I am a 24/14 / 50% steal / 11.1% 3bet / 1.7 AF / 79 hands at this table
BTN: $10.50
SB: $50.00
BB: $105.70 - 54/24 / 67% steal / 25% 3bet / 1.4 AF / 33 hands
UTG: $71.20

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is CO with Ah Jd
2 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.50, 1 fold, MP2 raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, 2 folds, BB raises to $5.70, 1 fold, MP2 calls $4.20, Hero calls $4.20
Not a normal play here; I'm not usually flatting twice PF in any hand...  given these guy's propensity for 3betting, I am driven to flat and not want to get stacks in.

Flop: ($17.85) 2h Kd 3h (3 players)
BB bets $5, MP2 folds, Hero calls $5
Float?  Bad move?

Turn: ($27.85) Jc (2 players)
BB bets $10, Hero calls $10
No reason to raise if he'll keep on betting.

River: ($47.85) 4s (2 players)
BB bets $25, Hero calls $25
If I call the turn, I'm pretty certain I'm calling a river bet of this size...

What range do you have BB on?  Am I calling too light here?  Obviously, given the results I am, but am I ever good here given the action?

Final Pot: $97.85
Hero mucks Ah Jd
BB shows Jh Kh (two pair, Kings and Jacks)
BB wins $94.85
(Rake: $3.00)


  1. I understand that the situation is obviously unique, but you hit the CALL button FIVE times in this hand!

    I might leave this table - too wild for me.

  2. I think calling flop+turn+river = bad play. His aggression factor just isn't high enough to warrant it. I think by the river, you know he doesn't love his hand, but he feels it is good enough to value bet. Your hand is only a bluff catcher, and not a great one. he could have a random K and not know if he his value betting or bluffing...

    No problem with the preflop action.

  3. I think your flop call is really the only mistake in this hand. I don't love the pre-flop flat with AJ but you are in position against a spewy (??) 3 betting monkey so that is fine.

    I also think you can find a fold on the river though I do agree if you call the turn and a 4 peels the river you probably should be calling.
