Hi js,

You haven't provided any reads, which makes your decision preflop tougher I think, but in a vacuum I think you can go with a flat call or a 3-bet. The hand can be tricky to play even in position for a flat call when we hit a top pair (with marginal kicker obv) or 2nd pair and get some action. 3-betting will get some slightly better hands to fold, Kx/Qx steals, and give us the initiative, but the range that does call us will have us in poorer shape generally. So which I prefer is largely dependant on villains opening range and tendencies (info I don't have here).

Post flop play looks fine. Float the flop with the intention to bet the turn when he checks, and fold to a 2nd barrel, unless we improve. And when we catch the best improvement possible, getting all in with the nuts and 1 card to come is a fantastic result.

Tweet this hand on Twitter using the Tweet button above for a chance to win a seat in the next $5,000 guaranteed Big Bang tournament. You MUST include #LearnPoker and @PokerStarsPSO in your tweet. Winners will be notified by email every Monday. Good luck!
