      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Results: $2.60 pot ($0.17 rake)
      Final Board: Q Q 2 8 2
      BTN showed J T and lost (-$1.29 net)
      Hero mucked 7 K and won $2.43 ($1.14 net)

      Opponent's stats:
      VP/PFR/AF/CbetFlop/CbetTurn/CbetRiver/WTS/hands 70/54/4.8/100(16)/75(8)/50(4)/17/62

      Is this spewy or good? So far villain has Cbet 16 flops in a row and 2nd barreled 75%. Given his 100% range I think we can call at least two barells with K high especially on a paired board – also the reason I chose to call with this hand preflop.

      Looks like spew but there is some logic.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Yep, it's a spew, you could easily even be against A high there or even better Kx. :) Why not just Check/Raise the flop then if you think his range is wide?

      Why do you Call in first place with such hand which is dominated hardly even by his range. It will be difficult to play with such a hand vs such an opponent who CBs so much. And your play will very often show huge losses.

      Best Regards.

      You are right, probably should have been a check/raise.

      Given his playing tendency (multibarreling as a bluff a high %) and 100% openraise range from BU is this really such a bad preflop call? If we choose to call him down with K-high like I did, then probably yes, but if we manage to get some check/raises in there on the flop it shouldn't be that bad. He dominates me almost just as often as I dominate him since his range consists of all Kx hands probably and many worse 7x hands.

      Then rather do with such Kx hands which also dominate some of his stealing range. :) And you had only 62 hands on him so 100% open-raise from BU isn't really correct one.

      Very difficult to overplay such opponents postflop if they tend to CB a lot and also at the same time maybe not even giving up postflop.
