      Hello BigAl123456,

      Yeah, you could easily bet smallish like $1 or something similar for a smaller PP to Call against such a loose opponent, he might even find a Call with 7x or 6x.

      Best regards.

      Hi BigAl123456!

      In general I would say that on this board you cannot be much wrong when you fold to MP3 raise (especially when he raises you OOP).

      As played:
      I like the flop and river bet. But I am folding here to raise.

      River:
      You have to think what he has and just call you for 2 streets. You may assume that sets would have raised on flop, same might go for 2 pairs. By calling you passively you are against range of pair+draw (OESD/gutshot - some 89, T8, 97, 9J) hands, smaller overpair, 99-JJ.

      With bet on river we make fold busted draws, get raised/call from better hands that are afraid bet river themselves and get maybe calls from 99-JJ hands.

      When raised here, we have to fold. MP2 does not look that tricky to blufraise here, but AA cannot call here due to str8/trip/FH possible on this board.

      I am checking behind here. Well played.

      Regards
