      Party, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      BB: $24.11 (241.1 bb)
      UTG+1: $10 (100 bb)
      MP3: $18.35 (183.5 bb)
      BTN: $5.22 (52.2 bb)
      SB: $10.77 (107.7 bb)
      MP1: $15.51 (155.1 bb)
      Hero (CO): $8.55 (85.5 bb)
      MP2: $13.90 (139 bb)
      UTG+2: $4.67 (46.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q A
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, MP2 calls $0.10, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, 4 folds, MP2 calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.45) 7 7 6 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.98, MP2 calls $0.98

      Turn: ($3.41) 4 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks

      River: ($3.41) Q (2 players)
      MP2 bets $1.62, Hero calls $1.62

      In retrospect I probably should not be cbetting this board because his call range is so wide. Villain is 35/3 over 158 hands with 50% fold to cbet out of 10. I think his calling range is 22+, 6x, 7x, broadways, 89, 45 and even more. Do you think this is a fair?

      Is checking the flop and then betting a blank turn a good line? In this case the 4 is not a very good card to bet (the FD + SD) so is checking down the best line?

      As played I think he has a lot of pocket pairs in his range (77+) and even 6x so I call. Is this fair?

      Hello buzzinowt,

      Against that kind of opponent I guess you can still CB the flop to gain a free card for the river. Nice hand! You might even be ahead with your Ace high there and get value from draws.

      Best Regards.
