      flop was really nice , but the cards were prety low so I didn`t wanted to scare him off, but could I play this differently to get more money from him ??

      Hi Blax,

      This section is for the MSS/SSS and you are posting a 100bb/bss hand. Next time I would kindly ask you to post in the BSs section :)

      Fortunately for you I play BSS as well so I will judge this hand for you:

      I would sometimes check/call the Flop or lead the Flop myself.

      The Turn is for me a slamdunk check/raise for value. I dont think he is folding 86, 64 here or 77

      Because if you c/c Turn you turn your hand face up on the River as you see ;)

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Hello blax41,

      Flop: Basically being so deep with CO I guess I would just bet myself on flop and even pot size and maybe get value from some 7x or draw type of hands.
      Turn: But at some spot you just have to start building up the pot, therefore I'd Check/Raise here definitely for value.

      As played
      River: And bet for value likely to avoid any Check-back. Although while you didn't Check/Raise it on turn then I would definitely try it here for the last shake. :D

      Best regards.

      Hi guys,

      How much do you check raise here?
      Is it kind of a min raise because of the fold equity?
      How much fold equity do we have here?

      ty!

      We don't need fold equity here. And I'd definitely do it pretty big while we are so deep and try to get maximum of it. Therefore on turn I would do it ~$4-4,5.
