I was going to respond by just asking you what range you put your opponents on, but eh...

Most people arent't limping an Ace here UTG. But depending on how passive they are, sometimes they will just limp any hand no matter what. But you will often see people limping small/medium pairs and hands like QJ, KQ, KJ, JT, 89, T9, etc. The second limper and BB could have anything. But I think a good portion of the time, your J9 can be good here.

When you bet the turn, it's not even a bluff, unless you really think UTG limped TT-KK, bets the flop, folds turn. Otherwise, it's a value bet. I think most of the time your bet on the turn just folds out worse hands and gets you called/raised by better ones.

cant see why you are calling flop and betting turn...it's as if you are trying to represnt an Ace. c/r flop will get villain to fold without risking a turn card.btw, how many users do you have? everytime you post a hand it's a diff user

Default Sticking to this user this time

Well I called the flop because i wasnt sure what to take UTG for.......until A turned, an i knew he wasn't holding A because every hand of s that went showdown was A2+ and he raised 7-8BB each time.


As for my user's yes I have used About four total. I'm sticking to this one though. I was only playing stars, then switched to tilt. Then stars returned a check I hadn't cashed on my fiancee's user. (the~madame1). Now I'm back to tilt and Switched so I wold get another sign bonus........

So what Hopz, you think I should have raised flop?

Default Normally I would have folded

I would have folded that preflop hustlr, but there was only one limper. I didn't really take it for a raising hand. So I gave it a call.

More limpers actually make completing the small blind better, not worse.

Stop trying to bluff in spots where there are almost no better hands that will fold.

You're not value betting AND you're not bluffing.

C/C or B/F turn
