      Villain stats: 26 hands - 12/8, 11.1 3bet

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      (Hero):
      $98.52
      SB:
      $92.97
      BB:
      $73.17


      Preflop: Hero is Btn with 8, 8.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, SB raises to $4.00, BB folds, Hero calls $2.75.

      Flop: ($8.5) 3, A, 3 (2 players)
      SB bets $5.00, Hero calls $5.00.

      Turn: ($18.5) 6 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $8.00, SB calls $8.00.

      River: ($34.5) 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $31.50, SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $34.5.

      Preflop: Fairly straight forward. Plenty deep enough to set mine and we have position.

      Flop: Pretty dry board. We sometimes have the best hand and it will be fairly hard for villain to continue without an ace.

      Turn: Villain checks, green light to rep the ace.

      River: Got to follow through as we clearly cant win at showdown[/B]

      Overall do we like the play/thinking here? It worked this time, but will this play show a profit in the long run? Turn and river bet sizing? Should we only make this play vs a villain we have more history with, and just fold flop vs relative unknown?

      Hi,

      If you were 100bb deep you could consider raising small on the flop, although since you´re flatting that dry board 100% of your value hands I think calling also with 88 is also fine.
      I think betting 12$ and then 28$ on the river represents Ax more often, but likely he would fold there his medium pp and sometimes call down with Ax, so you don´t have to bluff that much on the river to make him fold better hands

      best regards,
