      Hello.

      I am thinking about the river play.

      1) Is checking fine? He will probably not call another bet with missed flush draw or small pocket pair. I would just isolate myself against an ace.

      2) In case mp1 bets, what should I do? I am ahead against bluff, but behind if he has an ace. His AF is too low. He probably does not bluff too often in order to make my call profitable, so should I check/fold the river?

      Thanks.

      Hey JohnDoe1313,

      Well played, you could make the turn bet a bit bigger, but 70% of the pot is already good.

      On the river, c/f would be the best. He will have missed draws and Ax hands where Ax combinations will be the majority of his range. Plus you can't be sure whether he does bluff with missed draws or not.

      Best regards,

      Hi burek. Can we bet a little more in flop too or we should fold to resistence if a FD is completed in Turn? If neither of them, we´re giving him implied odds to play profitably his FD.

      Cya!!

      Hey,

      You can of course bet more on the flop, too, a potsized bet is usually a standard in unraised pots, but I consider 3/4 good enough already. As for resistance if FD completes, we need to know what resistance you have in mind, but standard would be to bet again for value even if FD completes.

      That´s right, I was forgetting that DP is enough strong to play it aggresively, and flush is not the only hand in villain´s range. Enough reasons to have confidence in your hand.

      Thanks for the explanation. ;)

      Cya!!
