The two villains are regular donkish microstakers as far as I've seen but have only been at the table for around 1 orbit, so going in half readless.

Stacks:
- SpielerABC with $4.82 - MasterJonnyJ with $2.89 - KCsquared with $2.31 - octas with $3.27 - S04VeltinS04 with $5.27 - dmarkc with $2.07 - jaketrevvor with $4.03 - cakehai with $1.75

Can we pinpoint villains' wide range and what's our line?

Sticky situation; top two pair, behind possible flopped straight but with 4 outs to redraw, ahead of one pair but if that pair has a draw to a straight they're not folding, and at this level a gut shot without a pair may not be folding.

I'd bet for value; 0.20 or so, and not be surprised if you get one or both calling.

its my main (wo)man jt.

At these stakes these guys have never heard of pot odds, so bet something like 30-40 cents. They will still call that with gutshots and with a pair and thats what you want. push all in to any re raise, and dance as they call with pock 3's

Can we pinpoint villains' wide range and what's our line?


It's impossible to pinpoint villains range this early in the hand. It's a limped pot so anything is still possible, from a flopped straight to a pair with a gutshot or someone having KJ, 97 etc. So many cards that leave us guessing can come.

It's a spot where you have to be careful because both you and SpielerABC started this hand with 200 BB's+. Pot is still small though, it's only 16 cents for now (8 BB's), and you have position. I'd repop this to about 20 cents and see what they do. I expect most of those hands mentioned before to call, which is a good thing. On the turn you reevaluate, if a baby card comes you should fire again. By raising the flop to 20 cents, if they both call, the pot is 68 cents. I'd bet about 30 cents on such a turn card, make them pay if they're drawing. The only problem with this strategy comes if you get raised on this turn bet after a small card shows up. Since you have no read on these guys you'd have to really consider folding at that point IMO. If you think you're not capable of folding in that spot, either because you fear they might be making a move on you or you think they're overevaluating a hand worse than yours, then you should just check behind. This is why it's crucial to plan your hand ahead of time, and in this case it's so much more so because you're up against 2 opponents and you have no reads on both of them. The fact you're on the button allows you to build a medium/big pot under more favorable conditions, but you still have to be aware of what can happen and know ahead of time how you're going to react to it.

Having position here is your best friend if a scare card (A, K, J, 9) should come on the turn or river. With the exception of the 9, any of those cards can make your hand 2nd best either to a straight or a better 2 pair, with little chance to improve. The fact that you and one villain are deep stacked will force you to slow down at that point because of the check/raise danger.

Sorry guys I've been away for a long time and figure I'll bump this back up with the the action. Basically I did pretty much what je (and most) said and got 2 limpers :eek: Tbf this is thoroughly believable at microstakes w/ KT or simililar. Anyhoo can't find bloody hand history..

I raise to $0.18
2 callers
Turn = Td
Checked to me
