Poker Stars $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players
The Official 2+2 Hand Converter Powered By DeucesCracked.com

BB: $20.85
Hero (UTG): $10.00
MP: $10.00
CO: $13.50
BTN: $16.65
SB: $22.65

Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with K J
Hero raises to $0.40, 1 fold, CO calls $0.40, 2 folds, BB calls $0.30

Flop: ($1.25) 9 6 J (3 players)
BB checks, Hero bets $0.90, CO calls $0.90, BB calls $0.90

Turn: ($3.95) J (3 players)
BB checks, Hero bets $3.20, CO folds, BB calls $3.20

River: ($10.35) 7 (2 players)
BB bets $16.35 all in, Hero calls $5.50 all in

Final Pot: $21.35
BB shows T 8 (a straight, Seven to Jack)
Hero shows K J (three of a kind, Jacks)
BB wins $20.35
(Rake: $1.00)


Even getting close to 3:1 on the river I think this is close to a fold against someone so passive. A bad fish would of raised a J before river.
nvm oops

This is a great post, I often have trouble folding hands like this because I can't calculate the opponent's range, and my equity fast enough. Its so important to think through hands like this off the table
