Default Line check

Wasn't sure if I should keep being aggressive on the turn or not, was first hand so no reads. Should I have done anything different?

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t20 (9 handed) FTR converter on zerodivide.cx

Button (t1500)
SB (t1500)
BB (t1500)

UTG+1 (t1500)

MP2 (t1500)
Hero (t1500)
CO (t1500)

Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img].

BB checks, <font color="#CC3333">UTG+1 bets t220</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t600</font>, BB folds, UTG+1 calls t380.

Turn: (t1530) A[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
UTG+1 checks, Hero checks.

River: (t1530) K[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>

The whole hand looks pretty good to me. Looks like maybe he was trying to trap you with a 9? I like checking behind on this turn card.

Maybe sometimes, but 1st hand of the tourney w/ no reads, I'm more than happy to see a flop w/o re-raising.

I was thinking about reraising preflop, but I decided this was one of the hands that a flat call would work well with, if an ace or king flopped I'd be done with it, and if a jack or unders hit, I could take control of it.

Not raising before the flop isn't a crime, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't with a raise in front of me with JJ.

The flop raise is way too small, you are giving him 3-1 to call, so he can call with a wide variety of hands you may want out. Try giving only 2-1 when you want to raise someone out.

Otherwise the hand is played well, I especially like your value bet on the river, I miss too many of those fearing monster.

nh.

Regards,
Woodguy
