      What are your thoughts on this?

      Villian is 6/3/1 over 64 hands.

      My flop bet was for value, as was the turn.

      BUT I slowed down to keep the pot a little smaller on the turn just because of his tight stats but smooth calling.

      Even with such a small range of hands, can I still bet for value against this type of player, around 1.45 on the turn?

      Villian is still just smooth calling, but after just calling the whole way I decide I can still get value out of this hand.

      Could still bet bigger though?

      Thanks

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Nah, play it this way as you did. There are still worse hands to Call you even if he is such a passive guy. Nice hand! What did he have then? :D And of course the bet sizes seem to be fine as well.

      Best regards.

      Ah, glad to hear the bet sizing was ok, I just wasn't too sure on that part.

      And here's the hand;

      Hi!

      What should you do if the hero had KQ?

      I was in a hand exactly like this one but I had KQ and villain had AK..
      Fired 3 bets... Very ugly I guess.. :f_biggrin:

      With KQ it would be whole different story, it's pretty problematic to get from such a nit that much value. :D While only reasonable hand might be in his range is maybe something like KJs. :D And therefore I might even Check it on river and reevaluate his bet size and might even consider Check/Folding. Because basically I don't really see many hands what we beat vs such a nit.
