      Wanted to know what you thought about this hand for extracting value.

      Obviously I'm not scared at all, he's probably drawing dead already.

      I can't see any way of getting any value off this flop unless he's hit but check calling since he's short.

      Suppose at the very least min-raise or something on river to try and give him better odds to call?

      Thoughts?

      Thanks!

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Just start betting right on flop, he wont pay us anyways much unless he doesn't have a hand. You don't even have to bet it very big, make it like 1/2 or something similar. So you will be able to get his stack on river. :)

      And if I am Checking behind on flop then I would likely consider throwing a small raise on turn.

      Although that's true that sometimes I do pick such a line when I am against some smaller stacks while we can easily even over-shove and they might hit something like K or A.

      Best regards.
