Hi guys,

Please could you analyse my hand below. This hand was part of my losing streak that I had.

This is basically a cooler and I'd play it exactly the same way. You have an overpair, but you're usually way ahead or way behind. Villain could be barrelling the turn with worse hands (flush draw, A9, JT, TT) but there's also some hands that have you crushed (sets, QQ+). The third barrel is pretty scary, but villain's range hasn't changed much. Only 76s got there. I'd call, particularly because the price is fairly cheap, but wouldn't expect to be good all that often, as you're only really beating TT, A9 and triple-barrels with missed draws.

I like that you kept the pot small in this hand, so you lost the minimum. If you'd raised at any point, you would have got value-owned. Well played, just unlucky villain hit his 2 outer on the flop, and the board ran out in a way that you can't ever fold.

Bracelet Winner
