      Villain was involved in a pot with pocket queens and an Ace in the flop where neither he or his opponent even tried to bet for the pot before the river. Then this...(Sorry for the format, on iPhone).

      ..something looks funny, maybe due to sitouts :D
      anyway looks fine with your reads. being in position and vs such a tiny bet i mostly like to call once, but we fold on turn if he continues obv.

      Brilliant, thanks for the reformat and answer. I almost called but the odds of me improving my hand were very small and calling 50% pot raise was too much I thought. Thanks again :)

      we call not because we are drawing to 2 outs (set), but because it's very possible that we have the best hand... he can just be making a default continuation bet with overcards because he doesn't think you have anything either.

      common scenario is that they check the turn if they don't improve, then we make a bet and win the pot :f_cool: (aka float)
      however if you don't think he has been continuation bet bluffing ever you can fold as well.

      also i'm just a hand evaluation forum regular - a professional hand judge will also comment on your hand later :D

      Hello Keifla,

      Usually calling isn't going to be very good option, easy and simple to play with those small PPs if you do hit then continue if not then just leave it alone to avoid mistakes.

      Best Regards.
