Overbet for value

Thanks, Zeebo!

Poker Stars $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em - 7 players
The DeucesCracked.com Hand History Converter

MP: $10.00
CO: $10.00
BTN: $3.85
Hero: $12.69
BB: $11.78
UTG: $7.82
UTG+1: $10.77

UTG+1 posts a big blind ($0.10)

MP posts a big blind ($0.10)

CO posts a big blind ($0.10)

Pre Flop: ($0.45)

Hero is dealt [4c, 5c]

UTG calls $0.10, UTG+1 checks, MP checks, CO checks, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.05, BB checks

Flop: ($0.60) Jd 4h 6d (6 players)
Hero checks, BB checks, UTG checks, UTG+1 checks, MP checks, CO checks

Turn: ($0.60) 4s (6 players)
Hero bets $0.50, BB folds, UTG folds, UTG+1 folds, MP calls $0.50, CO folds - Sweet turn!  Time to go for value from the diamond draws that didn't bet the flop, or the weak Jacks.

River: ($1.60) 4d (2 players)
Hero bets $9.40, MP calls $9.40 all in - Best river card in the deck (outside of the 5d, perhaps).  If he was drawing to the flush, he's folding whatever I bet.  But if he's holding a Jx hand, he has to think that he just split the pot with me.  In his mind, there's only one hand that beats him, and it's so unlikely that I runner runnered quads here...  Therefore, $9.4 into $1.6!

Final Pot: $20.40
Hero shows [5c, 4c], 4 4's
MP shows [Jc, 8h], 4's full of Jacks
Hero wins $19.90
(Rake: $0.50)
