      Villain stats 56/48/1.3/Fold to Cbet 0%(2)/24hands

      Regarding the first hand when he called my cbet I wasnt really concerned that he has an A because he would there called with any gutshot,any Kx, I kind of think even with a 2 or nothing. Since I couldnt exclude an A and still be ahead I bet on the turn a little bit less 60% of the pot.On the river I thought that he has an A and had a feeling I was ahead and my hand even there are straight and flush possibilities could be called by worse. So I decided to make it again about 60%. Do you think is this hand overplayed against such a player. He is very passive postflop and I loved that because he act like a calling station.

      To the second hand I think is pretty much the same thinking as the hand above. He acts passively and after he didn t bet the turn I thought I could extract some value from Qx or even worse flushes

      Hello Sikac,

      Would be nice if one hand her thread. :) So we could concentrate on just one hand and don't have to scroll to much up/down. :D

      Hand #1
      Well, you have to bet most likely still a bit bigger on the turn which may induce even raises.

      Hand #2
      Seems to be fine, I like the idea of Checking the turn and making him to level himself into Calling the river.

      Best Regards.
