      Villain is 21/9 with 1.7% 3b & is reg. My assumptions are that a reg is good enough to realise A high is no good on flop, imo I never bet into 4 opponents with air I mean so standard when they have so many pps in there range. I would expect fish to call with A high but not this nitty reg. On turn I decide that checking for pot control is ok, he has JJ/QQ in his range (1.7% 3b) and I figure there is really no river that hurts me (apart from maybe a 9 if he has 99 or smthin). He checks back so now I know he never has JJ/QQ and I alw have the best hand, so I decide to vbet vs 55-99 I never put a Q in his range. Did I play it ok? I could bet turn I think but just vs such a nit I thought I would find out where im at better + be able to control pot better and I figure if he is GOOD reg he wouldnt call 3 streets with 55/66 anyway. Let me know what you think, from his point of view he plays hand terrible. 1) I never have air. 2) If he thinks I have air on flop he should always raise river. 3) Even if he puts me on pp by river he should still raise, only 1 combo of QQ and I nvr have AA or KK, yes sometimes an 8 but lets not go there not raising because of that is rly stupid. Hand kinda tilted me because I just got river bluffed hand before meh. Back to work.

      Hello fusionpk,

      Flop: I really like your line, since we trying to protect against overcards on and since we don't have a very good OP.
      Turn: You can often consider just Checking turn and taking pot control since he could still have some OP which doesn't want to raise up like JJ, QQ and we don't really want to get raised.
      River: Betting smallish for value as you did. Well played!

      Best regards.

      Hi fusionpk,
      I don't like turn play at all from 'microplayer' point of view lol.I often see that opps call any overcards on trips boards and hoping to outdraw you, so bet on turn is absolutely necesary.You already decided by choosing pot control line to bet/fold on the river so u can do on turn if u think he can have QQ,JJ.I would choose pot control line vs guys which can't bluff in this spot.
      And another thing preflop TT you shoud consider squeeze because they can be played not only for set value.

      Thanks, yeah squeeze was definitely a consideration but I wasn't sure how much fold equity I actually had vs 5 opps, and if we get calls we are going to be playing a BIG pot and my edge is definitely postflop with good stacks.

      My other friend said he disliked turn check to get value from A highs, but I just thought villain NEVER had A high. I obviously over-estimated villains skill, I thought a nitty reg would realise A high is always behind here and therefore I assume there are rarely any dodgy river cards. Nvm if ppl are calling A high here they're only donating me money in the long run.

      Also checking turn helps me see where im at, he doesn't float me he checks back so he has SD value, which makes me super confident of value betting river, and JJ/QQ wud bet there for sure.

      Thanks veriz, what I was thinking :)
