      this is against a guy who i think ive kind of sort of figured out but not 100% sure how to play him.

      villain 28/20/6/120/43/50

      i think this is good that villain likes to go to showdown so much. it means he is willing to call bets on the river.

      i was playing 56/45/23/143/22/43 which is nice because im clearly dead money to these players in their minds.

      i dont know how to bet the river here. i know he is strong in his mind and will have at least a king in his hand. He could have AK but i dont want to narrow his range to just that. I dont know if a small bet wouldve induced a big raise from him. i thought about that too. i dont know if just shoving and hoping he cause 2pair+ is the best thing to do but i cant put him on 2 pair + too often cuz he mightve just bet the river in that case right?

      Pre I'd raise it 3bb on the btn especially with you playing so loose.

      Post flop is fine. I'd probably check the turn because he's not folding often and we only hit our fd 20% of the time.

      He sees showdown so much good spot to overbet imo nice sizing

      Hello ilovemagic,

      Doubt that you are going to have much fold equity on the turn, therefore just Check it behind rather than 2nd barrel it. Especially so weak which just makes look your hand super-weak or a draw.

      Best Regards.

      yeah good analysis guys. he is rarely folding the turn, especially to such a weak bet, and i dont really want him folding in such a small pot anyways, so id rather just check behind, let him lead out the river with most of his range and some bluffs possibly as well, and just raise it up at that point.
