      Hi!

      I really dont like your pre call. If you think he opens wide enough from co, fold to 3bet often, than 3bet/fold here, since he seems tight, but calling him oop with specalate hand, with which you have to make some tricky play postflop to make that profitable in a long run, is not good.

      On the flop I would have raised bigger. Nice river call :s_thumbsup: , and note that capable of bluffing bds.

      Hello clandestineAl,

      Yeah, I saw the hand in your blog. Which I somehow was hoping to see here to discuss. :D

      Actually Calling preflop of course is doable, but often if you are going to overplay your hand then rather just quit the table while even being so deep. You often putting yourself into marginal spots.

      So which means, I'd definitely consider Check/Raising right on flop bigger ~$1,20 even. :) Otherwise I'd just block-bet the river rather than turn my hand into bluff-catcher.

      Best Regards.
