      MP2 is a tight player (I'm not sure if he's passive or aggressive post-flop)

      Table image:
      I was tight on my starting hands.
      I show aggression on flops that I think I'm ahead.
      I made some slow plays when I'm way ahead.

      Generally, my opponents sort of respect my raise most of the time.

      Points:
      1. I don't have any stats on the player, so I can't place him on a good range pre-flop.
      2. I put him on AK, AQ, JJ-99 after he called my C-bet on the flop. This is also why I checked on the turn.

      Question:
      1. Is my bet on the river a leak on my game? Or I just can put a player on an accurate range of hands?

      Appreciate it! :D

      Hello 36bullets,

      The problem with 2nd barreling is that there aren't just many hands from which we get value, it's 3bet pot and they are often having a pretty strong hand, since we have shown a lot of strength. Against some calling station maybe even we could consider firing a bet on river, but more often I'd rather just give it up. But I'd likely bet a bit bigger on flop, ~$0,30.

      Best regards.

      Hi veriz,

      I see. I didn't consider that during that time. I guess I still have lots to learn.

      Thanks! :D
