      Hero lost $1.75



      Villain is 22/14/2.3/19 VP/PF/AF/WTSD

      On this hand I bet flop + turn for value. On the turn he thinks a bit more than usual and then he calls. On the river he bets half pot.

      I'm problably behind in this situation, right?

      An what if he checks the river? Should I bet again for value or should I just check behind since he's ahead now with any Qx?

      tyvm!

      Hey,

      Well I don't like your betsizings on the Flop & Turn because of the minraise pre, you are not getting enough value from your hand because his calling range is pretty wide

      So his River lead is kinda polarized and I think he is confident you won't fold Kx which means he has a strong hand therefore you can fold

      Best regards,

      Ok. And how much do you think I should bet on the Flop & Turn? About 2/3 of the pot? And should I bet the same value for bluff on dry boards?

      thx!

      Yeah 2/3 is better yes.

      Don't even think about balancing your betsizing sir, you are playing on the micro's at 888 where the average joe is pretty much drunk :D Just bluff the amount you think is the most cost effective

      lol ok!

      And what if he checks again on the river? Should I shove for value or should I just xb? I think he can still call me with Kx but now he's ahead with any Qx.

      His WTSD indicates he is not really calling light, you might try to valuebet thin qua 50% of the pot but checking back is fine as well
