      okay first of all, I don't see any MSS hands around yet for evaluation, so I figured I'd post one. I hope this is the right section as I don't see any MSS section

      villain had VPIP/PFR of 35/5

      Flush board, but against this range i thought he might aswell be chasing a flush instead of having a made hand already.

      Got lucky on the river though and won because the board paired, delivered a very bad beat to villain defeating his nut flush

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Hey

      Yes you are welcome to post here :)


      If you look carefully, you have $1.75 on the Flop with the Pot being $0.55.

      If you bet $0.40 as your cBet & he calls. Your stack is $1.35 and the Turn pot is going to be $0.4+0.4+0.55 = $1.35

      You can then shove potsized :) which gives you more EV


      As played ofcourse I would bet/call the Turn

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Hi,

      I'd say nh.

      No way to fold set against min-raise imo.
      Chances someone flopped a flush is really small so there are not many hands that beat yours.

      You didnt gave him a bad beat since he misplayed it from limp/calling pre-flop :f_biggrin:

      You could raise 1xbb more preflop for being OOP and you could bet slightly bigger on the flop so turn would be a shove.

      T.

      i haven't gone over alot of the new MSS stuff, but bet sizing on that flop, can we cbet more like .45 or even .5? really punish spade draws (since i cant imagine much else that can actually call us on this flop, we have 2 blockers to TP hands, and besides the FD board is super dry)

      also, betting .45 or .5 flop, bad players (such as guys who run 35/5) will call with FD, allowing us to shove turn and them thinking "OMG ITS ONLY 1.25 into 1.55!!!!
      " giving us even more value from FD?

      question for OP - as played on flop, what is your plan on a spade turn?

      maxEV against chasers is always betting x on Flop to get pot Y on the Turn which is equals to your turnstack Z (so Y=Z by betting X)


      If the 4th spade comes, I would c/c since one has topset and therefore there are barely toppairs in his range combo wise
