      I'm going to post a few hands against a loose and bad opponent as they happened also with the results inside of spoilers so that you can get a feel for his image.

      Hero checks, checks

      shows T:club: Q:spade:
      (Pre 27%, Flop 18.5%, Turn 9.1%)

      Villain was already looking too loose at this point, calling down pretty light.

      Do I have a shove for value on the river? I was not seeing too many worse Aces in his range at that point so I opted for a check back.

      shows 6:heart: 4:club:
      (Pre 35%, Flop 99.4%, Turn 100.0%)

      On the river I thought that he either has a full house or is betting air in order to get me off Ace/King high.

      Now I think that a half pot bet does not want any fold equity so I should be more inclined towards a fold because if he does not want fold equity ==> he is value betting.

      Hero ($28.26)

      Dealt to Hero K:heart: 8:heart:

      raises to $0.60, Hero calls $0.40

      FLOP ($1.20) 7:heart: 6:spade: 3:club:

      Hero checks, bets $0.60, Hero raises to $2.20, calls $1.60

      TURN ($5.60) 7:heart: 6:spade: 3:club: 4:heart:

      Hero checks, bets $5.20, Hero ??

      I opt for a c/r on the flop because I think that I can get lots of folds from his bare overcards + I have some eq with an overcard, backdoor fd & sd. The size was the standard one during the match - I've been c/r a few times and he folded.

      On the turn I have 25% eq vs 7 high straight so + implieds ==> call? and shove river when hit?

      Any point in leading out? I think that we have very little fold equity but if we still plan on c/c then leading turn might be good as we get called by worse hands than a straight and get raised only by 6x imo so b/f 3.5-4 looks good now.

      Dealt to Hero K:heart: T:heart:

      Hero raises to $0.60, calls $0.40

      FLOP ($1.20) 4:heart: 7:diamond: J:spade:

      checks, Hero bets $0.80, calls $0.80

      TURN ($2.80) 4:heart: 7:diamond: J:spade: 8:club:

      checks, Hero checks

      RIVER ($2.80) 4:heart: 7:diamond: J:spade: 8:club: K:spade:

      checks, Hero bets $1.75, raises to $4, Hero calls $2.25

      Hero shows K:heart: T:heart:
      (Pre 66%, Flop 19.6%, Turn 9.1%)

      shows 8:heart: J:diamond:
      (Pre 34%, Flop 80.4%, Turn 90.9%)

      wins $10.26

      If I don't think this is a bluff like ever and also it doesn't make sense for him to c/r for value a worse hand ==> I am always beaten here and I should always fold against this opp ? Also worth noting the very small size that doesn't look like wanting me to fold.

      Hero ($20)

      Dealt to Hero 5:diamond: A:club:

      Hero raises to $0.60, raises to $1.80, Hero raises to $4.65, calls $2.85

      FLOP ($9.30) 3:diamond: A:spade: Q:diamond:

      checks, Hero bets $4, raises to $10, Hero raises to $15.35 (AI), calls $5.35

      TURN ($40) 3:diamond: A:spade: Q:diamond: T:heart:

      RIVER ($40) 3:diamond: A:spade: Q:diamond: T:heart: J:spade:

      Hero shows 5:diamond: A:club:
      (Pre 56%, Flop 76.5%, Turn 18.2%)

      shows T:diamond: Q:spade:
      (Pre 44%, Flop 23.5%, Turn 81.8%)

      wins $39

      He had showed me at this point that he is capable of 3betting trash so I decide to make I think the first 4bet with this hand expecting to get a lot of folds and also for him to shove his very good hands.

      On the flop I think his range mainly consists of broadways so I make a small bet in order to induce a shove from his pair + draw type hands.

      PS: I thought that it is better to post the hands played consequently vs an opponent in the same thread. If you think this is a bad idea let me know.

      Too many hands, but I´ll give my opionion
      1) If he is going to call you down light, then I´d bet river. You don´t have to shove, although pot is quite large, so shoving river 11$ seems fine
      2) Likely I´d also call him down if you don´t c-bet A8 that spot
      3) if you played it that way then you have to c/rai on the turn. You have very good equity and he may b/f there smt. I´d personally would b/c turn myself
      4) standard b/c on the river
      5) After hitting tp in 4-bet pot you can´t b/f, so I like your play
