I know its a common error amongst new players and it's one of my faults.

I feel I over bet here.

But I'm not sure if I should have checked or min bet??

I was open ended, but there was a flush draw.

I also worry that an other card will hit the flop and pair someone up.

Any guidance - greatly appreciated..

Stacks:

* SB with 5590
* BB with 2185
* UTG with 2205
* MP with 1870
* CO with 1255
* BTN with 1895

It might have been better to post this in the Hand Analysis section of the forum... :dontknow:
or strategy...

i'm not sure..

that there is much to analyze here..

you want to get the player off their game so you don't get sucked out..
you raise after the flop and hope they don't call you because if they do you lost...
so... good hand ;-)

Depending on the level of play, a overbet of the pot smells like a "please don't call or reraise me" bet.

However, at a low enough level, say a $1 buy in, it also can mean "I've got a monster and I want to get paid lots", or "I've got Aces and I'm not folding".

If you want to give odds not to call, against one other player a pot sized bet is more than sufficient. That doesn't ensure they won't call, it just means that if you're capable of not paying them off if they hit, they are making a mistake by calling. Reading up on pot odds in the articles section of the forum can help you with that.

The other thing; don't minraise preflop. The table is less than full (9 players) so your preflop raise doesn't need to be 4 big blinds, but raising minimum gives the blinds odds to call you with less than great hands.


Also, as stated, this thread should be in the analysis section.


Edit: I just realized, I can't see from the new converter which is Hero preflop? By counting I'm assuming Hero here is SB, but that should be indicated somewhere preflop.

Always think about your raise, minimum raise isn't a thinker
