Hi siingh,

It would make the job of the hand analysers easier if you posted using the Hand Replayer or Boom instead of the wall of text.
Might I suggest you see this post first http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/for...and-for-review

Hi siingh!

With a really bad hand in K6o, when the others limp, I'm more than happy to check and see a free flop. If someone would have raised, I need to fold.

I flop 2 pair and need to make a value bet. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, board texture and number of opps. With 3 opps in the pot, I need to bet 34 chips. I cannot check. The only time that I can check is if there isn't a single card in the deck that can beat me and with this many opps, someone has an overcard to my 6. I also cannot bet (or call) a bet less than this, or I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me... something that I need to avoid doing whenever possible when I think I'm ahead.

The turn 10 could be a problem, because if the opp has one, I'm now way behind. I need to make one last value bet here and will lead for 1/2 pot since I'm heads-up. My plan for the rest of the hand is that if I'm raised, I need to fold and if I am called, I'm not putting another chip into the pot unless I improve on the river. If I check the turn, then I need to fold to the opp's bet. I do not want to check/call here.

The river is another overcard and I need to check and hope to get to a cheap showdown. If the opp bets again, I need to fold.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
