      Hi veriz,

      It looks to me he just bluff bet the river because he missed his draw. I want to call but decided to fold.
      Also I wonder if cbetting the flop is a mistake. I think it's a must cbet cause it's 3bet pot.

      Thanks,
      cpers

      Hello cpers,

      Buh, that's why I do dislike CBetting on such boards. It's so often just a waste of money. Why? Since some tighter player will have often here some PPs which he ain't gonna fold and will definitely float. And also maybe even a looser player will float with just overcards. Couple SCs did hit, couple broadways gonna continue. Therefore I might even prefer Check/Folding right on flop unless I know the opponent more or plan to barrel more.

      As played I'd still barrel the turn card which is fantastic to barrel, he might even give up some pair/PP type of hands rather than make the hero-call on river.

      Best regards.
