      Heyhow,

      SB kinda fishy (small sample). BTn 18/6 small sample.

      I think preflop, flop & turn are standard.

      If BTN checks turn he doesn't have a good hand and now that SB checks the river I doubt he has better than a jack here. So I chose for a thin valuebet versus maybe 9x, TT?

      BTN raises and I have 3 reasons for the call:
      1) He reps amazingly thin, only like JJ but that's 1 combo.. All draws miss
      2) My little bet might induce
      3) I get a very good prize for bluffcatching.

      Hope this makes sense.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      I'd still value-bet 1/2 pot size and then reevaluate the action. Also I disagree about representing a narrow range, why wouldn't he have sets there which went to Check/Raise the turn and missed and then assume that can do it on the turn cause some of you guys would have hit or try to bluff. He definitely has also weaker sets in his range.

      Although for the given odds most likely will be difficult to lay down, I'd Call it for the given reason that I'd just take the note on him which might be even more worth and to see if he is capable of slowplaying them like that on such a dangerous board.

      Best Regards.

      Not really, kinda obvious. Sees J is improving your ranges, easy Check/Raise for value, although I am pretty sure he could have pressed out more money.
