Semibluffed on turn with flush and straight draw.

Value bet river and got raised.

Thoughts?

Villain is not a reg.

Hi birdayy

Preflop I would recommend folding J5s in this spot. Your hand won't win often enough to make it worth while. Had it folded around to you, you might be able to make a steal raise against tight players in the blinds. But limping along is going to cost you money in the long run. Axs and suited connectors are playable though.

The rest of the hand looked pretty standard. Nobody hand shown any strength, so semibluffing the turn looks good. Any time you get minraised from a passive player on the turn or river, I get concerned and give them credit for a strong hand. Calling the rerasie is fine. I am glad you didn't 3-bet him. Caution seemed warranted here.

The main point to think about is getting in the hand to begin with. Too often we lose big pots with margninal hands when we flop top pair weak kicker or similar hands.

GL and have fun at the tables!

Thanks Dave.

It was a pretty passive table so I thought overlimping w/ position wouldn't be too bad. The blinds (from the hands I saw) never raised a limped pot.

Anyway, thanks again.

Back to the tables i guess.
