      Reads – he is able to barrel flop and turn light and he is doing that big. However the hand in which it happened, he gave up on the river.

      Pretty close eh ?

      IMO NH. We are keeping all his range in. Some could argue shove turn, but IMO no need since we have Ahigh FD and 4 :diamond: doesn't change anything.

      Thanks for your reply.
      I was thinking pretty much the same. I saw him BvB from SB in 3bet pot going double barrel for potsize with 77 on QK42 rainbow therefore I called him down. However in that hand I mentioned he stopped on the river.

      We still get 2 nice streets of value from him. Better than raising flop and then him getting scared on the turn :)

      On a more drawy board like KT9 I would be inclined to raise though.

      Your posted hand, not many cards help him but on a more drawy board there could be plenty of cards that put you behind.

      Hello acceleration123,

      Not much to add. I wouldn't really play any other way too. He may still even ship the river with bluff, as you said he is capable of betting light. :) Nice hand!

      Best regards.
