      Hello Elertar,

      Well, the problem on turn/river is that there ain't gonna be worse hands which are going to pay you. I mean any 9x already beats you, better 2pairs/sets possible. I'd rather just Check behind on turn or either way river as played. You can't get 3streets value here from worse.

      Best Regards.

      i understand why he shouldn't have bet the river, but the turn? isn't it a bit weak to ch there? ofc it would very much depend on the opp, but i could see that a random player would call the turn with AJ KJ J8, some of the looser ones even with QJ.

      Board: 8dThJc7d
      Equity Win Tie
      BU 58.30% 56.47% 1.83% { JdTs }
      BB 41.70% 39.87% 1.83% { TT-88, AJs, KJs+, QJs, Q9s, J8s, AJo, KJo+, QJo, Q9o, J8o }


      i hope my villain range is ok.

      Draw completed, a lot worse ain't gonna pay, we can't get 3 streets of value from him, we don't protect much here. Should be enough of reasons. :D Only reason to bet is for free showdown.
