      Hi veriz,

      It's villain's hand again. I like how the CO played his hand on the turn. He hit his trips and then made a precise raise on purpose so his shove on the river be around 2/3 of the pot which makes it less scary. What do you think about CO's play?

      Any idea on how to calculate bet size like this? Do you think this kind of formula would be useful?

      Thanks,
      cpers

      Hello cpers,

      What do you think about CO's play?

      Against that kind of min-bet on flop I would most likely Call as well with our mid-pair+GS. If he really wants to give that great odds then just abuse it.

      Don't think that there has to be much of formula for it. :) He just made pot+bet and make sure that you can ship it on river easily. :)

      But overall CO play should be totally fine I'd say. SB just made a very horrible play.

      Best regards.
