      BTN - whale
      BB - tag reg 24/18, AF 2.4

      I am not sure about flop cbet vs therir combined range, esp fish can have a lot of J's in his range so I don't want to valuecut myself.
      I raise turn for value I get from his combodraws and worse twopair.
      River card is shit so I just ch/b, I could maybe turn it into a bluff but on nl25 I think I would still fold out only what I beat so no sense in that.

      Hello Gregor86,

      Flop: Well, what's your plan here vs the fish? Do you plan to Check/Fold directly or Check/Call? If you plan to Check/Call then I rather prefer CBetting myself here. :)

      As played
      Turn: Kind of close spot, especially when the reg leads out here, I might even take pot control and skip the thin value. What's your plan if you get 3bet? :) Also if you raise then why do you give him great odds for FD? Do you think he going to continue with a lot worse hands?

      As played
      River: Not much to add, no thin value even for us. :P

      Best Regards.

      What would you recomend on these kind of flops? My initial thought is c/f. Altough we do have position over the reg so that is good if the fish stabs, we get to see his action first and then c/c. But if we cbet fish folds, reg could always go for a c/c w smth like KJ. So yeah in retrospect I should be more affraid of valuecutting myself vs the regs range.

      I agree w turn, maybe just a bit too thin, cuz some of the cards on board really block out a lot combo draw hands. As played my betsizing should be $6-7?

      As long it doesn't hit that much of regs flatting range here, I would tend to CB here. Fish could easily have a lot worse hands as draws/Tx hands and maybe even worse. The same goes for reg, who could also be calling with draws. With CBetting we might also get value from worse + protect + get a free card for river. Check/Folding directly might be a bit too weak without knowing the specific range of BB which he is flatting like that.

      Yeah, I would make it a bit bigger ~$6 to protect from 1card FDs an maybe get value from worse pairs.
