      Hi, Villain unknown

      OK line vs unknown?
      I think a more standard line would be b/b/x since i doubt i can get 3 streets of value.
      But I'm worried about getting c/raised since it seems to be happening a lot more on NL25.

      If he checked river I would v bet.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:spade: T:heart:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, 2 folds, BB calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.60) 9:club: Q:diamond: 3:heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.05, BB calls $1.05

      Turn: ($3.70) 3:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($3.70) 7:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $2.25, Hero calls $2.25

      Results: $8.20 pot ($0.37 rake)
      Final Board: 9:club: Q:diamond: 3:heart: 3:spade: 7:club:
      BB showed K:diamond: J:heart: and lost (-$4.05 net)
      Hero showed Q:spade: T:heart: and won $7.83 ($3.78 net)

      Hello dannywratten,

      Rather Bet the turn as well for value vs unknown. :)

      Best Regards.

      I'd play it exactly the same way because we rly valuetown ourselves vs better Qx if we bet the turn. I think even TJ can sometimes fold there on a 2nd barrel (or ch/r which sucks). Also I don't expect calls from JJ, 9x. So we never can get 3 streets of value. I'd show weakness now on the turn to get some calls on the river from 9x and TT etc. When he bets the river now we have to call :) .

      Even I'm thinking about check flop since he can't have that many worse Qx?

      Checking flop is just huge mistake while not protecting from overcards. Don't like it at all, and easy value there.

      Okay agree, and is my thinking at the turn bad?

      No, depends also on the dynamics and which we see being more profitable. Vs aggressive ones I'd consider doing it vs unknown rather just Bet for value.
