I would re-raise preflop. Is this a leak?

Oh man, that can't be a good turn card for us. I'm putting the brakes on. Call me weak tight. What are we ahead of here other than some random PP? Check-call a small bet, fold to any real heat.

I think this hand becomes much easier with a PF re-raise to about 75-100ish. As it stands, the flop bet is mandatory...I was thinkin checkraise but I use that way too much, and a free card can be disastrous, plus it doesn't give you that much more info.

The turn card is friggin scary, but I think you gotta announce that you like you're hand here and put in another 150 or so. After that, I think i'm done with it.

How's your line if he bets out on the turn? Edit: Say 150-175 for instance.

Umm...I dunno its a tough situation. It would depend how I felt, I'd either fold or flat call, with the intention of checking the river and folding to a bet. The thing is that if he has just an ace he will often check behind on the river (thinking that his ace is good), so I can find out if my hand is good cheap. Anyway I have to think about this hand more....But for now I gotta goto sleep [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

This hand makes my head hurt.

I have no idea what a min-raise after a limper could possibly mean at the 215 level.

However, if he is ahead of you after the turn(two pair or a set) that board seems way too dangerous for him to give you a free card given that he assumes you have some piece of it since you took the lead on the flop.

I would have probably checked the river and called any bet.

I have to call his raise on the end.

Then I probably bang my head against my monitor and mutter something about sucking at poker......

I don't play a whole lot on line anymore, and I did play at the lower levels. The miniraise in that spot is odd. It is hard to interpret. What I've noticed a lot when I play is that people will mini raise w/AK. But I'm at a loss about what your opponent has here after seeing how the betting developed to this point.
