SeanyJ24: ....?

El Greco is 29.2/14.2/1.82 over 106 hands
ezliven is 57.7/3.8/.75 over only 26 hands

Should I re raise now or just call and check raise on the turn. It's not a very scary board unless they are holding 89 or KQ which could be possible.

Oh and my stats at this table are 15.2/6.1/3.5 over 33 hands.

well there is 2 to a str8 and 2 to a flush so it is a draw heavy board in a sense
because of this i would have to raise here maybe something like 2$ to 2.5$ bet just to try and get some draws out of the way, plus there is a possibility that grecko has something like kings or queens and u probably will get payed off by him

I was always a firm believer of just betting your strong hands on nl$10. just raise/shove, AA/KK will always pay off, KQ will usually as well.

This, hell J2 will pay you off. They may play it scared and check-call, but most nl10 players aren't folding their top pair.

I would call, check raising here would show too much power.

Oh wow, I didn't even see the clubs when I was looking at the HH again. It seems like the consensus is that I should raise here, and I probably should have just lead out.

*** FLOP *** [Jc Td 5c]
SeanyJ24: checks
mrdut: checks
El Greco XIX: bets $0.60
ezliven: calls $0.60
SeanyJ24: raises $1.40 to $2
mrdut: folds
El Greco XIX: folds
ezliven: folds
SeanyJ24 collected $2.50 from pot

I guess the check raise was showing way too much strength but I didn't think that these guys would really catch on to that.

Was that before or after I was at the table?

Nice CR; I find too many players at $10NL don't understand CR so I'd have bet out on the flop.


Sorry I didn't say hi; I wasn't sure if it was you. It was my 4th table and not a good one. Lost with KK twice.

if you hit something on a j,t,x flop, never slow play. People will always have straightening cards around that flop
