      Hello nick1237,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Add to full stack if playing BSS.

      Preflop: Against a min-raise I would usually even raise 4x his raise.
      Postflop: Why so small bet on flop? Rather do it bigger ~$0,24 would be mine vs that kind of station. As played the problem is that some draws even completed and you don't beat much. Rather would consider folding it on river than making the hero-call while you don't have that great reads on him either.

      Best regards.

      I see now that the flop is a too small bet with many draws. Keep that in mind next time.
      On the turn i consider it as far ahead or far behind situation. Villian bets any 2 after his float. Looked it up and have an equity around 70%.
      The river is a complete blank and it felt stupid to call the turn and fold the river.

      Villian had 7d5c but it didn't matter to me what he had.

      That's true that if he had a strong hand on turn then he would be most likely Check/Raise against you. But as you see you only beat pure bluff and that's it. Do you even have reads that he is capable of going for such bluffing?

      But as I see you get the point between a Call-down here and not. :) Obvious that at some spots we definitely can even consider doing the hero-call but is it worth and can we even see that many bluffs in his range?

      Thanks Veriz,

      I understand. Because the majority does not bluff in this situation OOP and not having seen villain doing it either, makes the play worse than a coinflip.
      If villain is sticking it in so easy better wait for a better spot.

      Or at least some reads. :)
