Hi Rome,

I think you played the hand pretty well to be honest. The big stack is going to limp with a wide range here (probably), so once the flop hits you are looking good.

You could probably bet a bit more on the flop (3/4 pot) to price out the flush draw, but essentially you want to get as many chips in the pot as possible, and you did this.

Bad luck on the river, but that happens sometimes.

Cheers,


James

Hi RomeWu

You played the hand to perfection vs a loose aggressive opponent. I like your bet sizing on the flop it's an amount that a loose aggressive opponent may be inclined to call with most of his range regardless if he connected with the flop.

The only thing I would of changed is your bet sizing on the turn, when we flop 2 pair we are essentially looking for value, if villain had a holding like 7x he might fold to the large bet on the turn, but of course you may have reads on this guy and versus some players you can pretty much bet how much you want and expect to see a call.

Overall nice hand, unlucky, keep it going!
