      River: 6:spade: ($1.32, 2 players)
      SB bets $0.32, Hero folds


      39/6 113 hands.
      Not enough sample size, but I assume that he calls open about 20-25%


      *OL(then calls SB raise) AQo @CO, checked to turn(board paired), when minbets with A-high.
      *slowplays monsters, doesn`t get enough value with big hands.
      *sometimes minbets(or bets small) with A-high.
      *generally bets VERY small, even with value
      *calls 2 bets with K-high @BU.

      Miss-clicked, standard open here for me is 4bb.

      When he leads, I put him on a pair/FD. I must protect my hand, so I raise. By calling, his range narrows a bit. Can exclude A8, A7 type of hands(or maybe not?).

      Protect or pot-control? I still have about 50% equity against his range. By checking here, I would call any river but spade, A, K, maybe J.

      By betting about half-pot, I would gain on FE. If he would call - I would check/fold river, if he bets - fold.

      Worst card in the deck, can beat only bluff, which is unlikely in this spot.

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      I'd just bet the turn as well for free showdown and also protection and also information to find out where we stand. Otherwise I'd also rather just fold it with your reads. By the way wanted to mention out that keep going those good notes you taking in the game, I am pretty sure they have helped you a lot.

      Best regards.
