      Hi,

      I just have 9 hand with him. So, I show his stats on this link. Villain Dbet 1 big blind($0.50) on Flop, I thought about raising it to about $4.20 but I decided to call IP and hope to hit on Turn. Luckily, I hit it and I raised him on the Turn $1 to $3. On, the River I thought I have the best hand. So I bet on River.
      Should I raise him on Flop? Or raise bigger on Turn? Should I check behind on Rival? Any advice is appreciated. :s_love:

      Hello,

      nh. I pretty much play it the same way.

      I like calling the flop better than raising because you get good odds to hit your outs.
      turn you can raise a bit bigger but a shove would proly push him out of the pot.

      Hey JHTAN,

      Imo, this is close between calling flop and raising flop. I personally would prefer to raise to 3$ in order to win the hand right there and if villain calls he will often check turn to you meaning you can cb and see turn and river in case he doesn't give up on the flop.

      On the other hand, his minraise gives you good enough odds to call with 6 outs and you certainly can do so and play as you did although I agree with T. to raise turn bigger to like 4$. On the river I would prefer to cb because many hands improved(76, 64, 54, 43, 44) and I don't see many worse hands calling a shove here.

      I'll leave this open for Gerv in case he has a clearer point of view what's better.

      Regards,

      Hi,

      Another quite similar hand. On the Turn, I think check/fold is the better than second barrel. What do you think?

      Hi,

      The K is a very nice 2nd barrel card.

      Normally 1xbb donks are weak like draws and bottom pairs. So the 2nd barrel should work quite often here.

      Too bad you have no sample. If you would know his WTS/fold2turn and real aggr factor it would be a bit easier.

      I don't like calling Flop as 78% of the time you will miss it's a longshot draw and folding on a turnbarrel OR calling a turnbarrel again just because he minbets is just ridiculous weak-tight

      so I will raise this up on the Flop and semi-bluff shove a fairly high amount of the time because he will call Flop frequently but c/f a lot on the Turn
      Make sure you have leverage though, most important thing.
