      Bet/fold river for value.

      I get paid by weaker Ax hands and lose to completed flushes. The good thing is that I'm blocking Q :spade: so K :spade: and J :spade: would definitely be in his flush draw calling range. Against Ax,Ksxs,Jsxs



      Board: A:spade: 3:spade: 8:club:  A:diamond:  7:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    50.00%  47.46%   2.54% { AcQs }
      MP3    50.00%  47.46%   2.54% { A2s+, QsKs, JsKs, TsKs, 9sKs, 8sKs, 7sKs, 6sKs, 5sKs, 4sKs, 3sKs, 2sKs, JsQs, TsJs, 9sJs, 8sJs, 7sJs, 6sJs, 5sJs, 4sJs, 3sJs, 2sJs, A2o+ }



      If I add more flush draw combos I have lower equity.

      My point is won't there always be more flush combos than Ax combos in his range? So is it really worth betting?

      Hello maheepsangari,

      I'd most likely bet the flop & turn even bigger cause I assume from such a guy there is tons of value. He will have a lot of worse Ax hands. And as played on the river I'd still Bet/Fold it as well like $3, should be still in long run be profitable. He might even sometimes end up with just worse PPs even. :D

      Best Regards.
