lol.... not quite sure who played it worse. your min-3bet on the flop or his check behind the turn... or your 60 chip river bet that was min-raised by him........ damn 4.40's are juicy, lol

The min reraise on the flop probably confused him. It confused me and it might have killed action if you were ahead.

I think you did well to lose as few chips as you did.

I too checked it wasn't limit though :)

the whole hand is just bizarre. i guess in this exact instance you lost as little as possible but i can't see playing the hand this way being a good move in the long run.

Just to reiterate (sp?), yes you lost just about the least amount possible. Had you been playing no limit holdem, you'd have probably lost more. Hmmm some good coming out of minraising??? ;)

wow, minraising to death. I agree there wasn't much less you could lose (say thank you for the 3 card flush on the board), but I just don't see why you kept weak-bet or min-raising.
I think the 3-bet on the flop must be bigger, and the river was just obscene. There about 500 in the pot, and you're betting 60?

I would love to credit you with a great read on your opponent for keeping the pot low... but what was the reasoning on this hand?

why bet that river??

I half agree - you've either got to check this river (flushes and better kickers beat you - and possible FH's), or bet much bigger. My trouble with checking is that it leaves your opponent free to bet - and you don't really have a check-call or chech-raise hand here.

If it helps - I think your opponent played a lot worse than you did. He should have bet the turn, and he should have raised much more on the river. With a not-too-great kicker, even if he puts you on the A he should be worried about your other card, and be betting you off on the turn.
