      BTN lost $0.81

      BU = 70/37, 20h

      Is it better to check here? Only worse he`s calling is FD`s, maybe some PP`s. If I check and he bets, I would call and re-evaluate the turn.

      As he did call the flop, I think he could have an A, FD, 45, 88, 66. I still can beat some of his range, so I bet, hoping for a free SHD. I think he would check all the hands I beat on the river. I bet smaller, because I didn`t want to value-bet my self if he had an A.

      I don`t think I could call, if he bets. I showed enough aggression and I doubt he would bet his missed FD.

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      If we are CBetting here then it means we are doing it for value and especially vs such a loose guy I'd plan to 2nd barrel as well, although I'd do it a bit bigger ~$0,50.

      Best Regards.
