      BB: 31/15/9 48 hands

      UTG: 37/11/2.5, cbet 75, WTSD 24, 152 hands

      On flop he cbets so little, it looks that he has not a good hand. I have a gutshot and backdoor FD so I try to take the pot. The problem is fish BB, so don't know if it was good idea to raise there.

      On turn I improved, but don't know again. My bet looks strong, so he should fold JJ, QQ, AQ. But in his range there is also KK+ and AK, which he is not folding, so probably its too much risk of being checkraised, so I should check I try to improve on the river.

      After thinking about turn, I think that it is bad idea to semibluff on flop, because he often has good hands, and not folding even second pairs, unless my raise would be much higher. Plus yet there is a BB in the pot.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      I'd say I don't mind such play at all, and also taking into account that we gained extra equity on turn with our FD then it should be totally doable. He will still fold there a lot worse hands, so therefore I see us having there pretty great fold equity and equity vs any range.

      Best regards.
