      Hey veriz,

      Villain:
      20/14/308h reg.
      cbet 64%
      cbetturn 50%
      wtsd 28
      w$sd = 58%
      steal BTN = 47%, Foldtoresteal = 100%

      BB wasn't aggro so I called preflop.

      The ch/c OTF is std, can't really fold to 1 barrel. He'll cbet his whole range.

      OTT my plan is ch/f. But he bets really small and to me it looks like a hand which bet for thin value and free sd like AT maybe. The board is drawy so he should protect with his better hands. I try to bluff Ax.

      My riverplan: Probably bet big again on a blank if he calls... Cause of his turnsizing I think he's never strong. Right?

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Nope, it's not always right. His bet sizing could just invite you to think this way that he has a weak hand and he is trying to trap you and most likely not really planning to fold his hand. At the same time it could also weakness, it could mean anything, even a FD could be 2nd barreling this amount sometimes to get rid of Kx hands.

      But as long we see weakness in his sizing it's fine if you also bet the river, if not then just Check/Fold the turn cause he isn't folding Ax hands vs your line by just raising the turn.

      Best Regards.
