Should one slow play? Never...

A seemingly straight forward hand turning out to be a complete disaster. :shock: oh well
UTG is LAG-ish calling the last 25 hands , while have played SB before and seems typical TAG.

PokerStars - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 3: http://www.pokertracker.com

UTG: $27.37
CO: $25.62
Hero (BTN): $27.16
SB: $25.60
BB: $25.00

SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero has 9c Td

UTG raises to $0.85, fold, Hero calls $0.85, SB calls $0.75, fold

Flop: ($2.80, 3 players) 6h 7d 8s
SB checks, UTG checks, Hero checks

Turn: ($2.80, 3 players) 3s
SB bets $2.00, fold, Hero raises to $4.25, SB calls $2.25

River: ($11.30, 2 players) 3c
SB bets $7.25, Hero raises to $14.50, SB raises to $20.50 and is all-in, Hero calls $6.00

SB shows 3h 3d (Four of a Kind, Threes) (PreFlop 49%, Flop 3%, Turn 23%)
Hero shows 9c Td (Straight, Ten High) (PreFlop 51%, Flop 97%, Turn 77%)
SB wins $50.30

You probably won't get any action if villian didn't turn a set.

There are times where you should slow play , like when the stack to pot ratio is low , Heads Up in early streets

Should have exercised pot control at the river.

why check at the river when u r at the button? bet... if villians flop set.. u r betting for value.. by checking in position, wat r u trying to do... min-turn raise? wat is that for? board is so easy to read, villian straight away put u on a straight..so he just call ur min-raise to get to river, hopefully the board will pair.. the board pair at river, villian bets, wat the hell u put him on? apparently, u put him on Ace high, stone cold bluff bcos u raise him and call his shove!!!!

btw, preflop u call villian raise utg with T9o is very loose...but by doing tat, u r hoping the villian is the non-calling station type. so that u can float n take th pot from him on the flop n turn when he checks.. but u did not stick to ur plan!!!! u check on the button!!!!

lastly, wat is ur username in PS? :twisted:

As mentioned, UTG was playing a lot of hands and calling with 10,9o at BTN was to see flop for some draws.
Terrible river play on my part, had put SB on a high pocket pair as he was tight and really didnt not except this. Cardinal sin: re-raise at river is the nuts.

I think PS threw in the one-outer quad just to annoy me.(doomswitch) Any other pairup for a full hse just wouldn't be so exciting and i would have folded..

Lol @mal some nick. What's yours? Seeya at the tables!
