      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:


      A regular hand before the river. On the flop, I don't see what I beat but Kx. There isn't so many draws. I cbet quite low.
      On the turn, I don't like much the 9 but I don't wanna loose the initiative and bet for free river.
      The Q on the river is awfull and I'm seriously considering folding. On the other hand, I've TPTK and the bet is 1/3 of the pot.

      What do you think about the size on the flop and would you call on the river?

      Play hand

      Hey Franck

      There is no way I'm calling on the river. Every J beats you, there are sets, 2 pairs... It's an easy fold imo.

      I'd bet flop+turn bigger as well.

      This is a close spot actually since we only have to be good 1 in 4 times (25% equity with TPTK).

      Depending on the opponent, I may call or fold.

      If it's a passive fish who is betting all of a sudden I fold. If it's against a reg, it looks like a blockbet which indicates a relatively weak (not nuts) holding. I actually see enough Tx hands in villains range to call because he merely check/calls both streets and the turn still had Tx as second pair.

      The more I consider, the more I think a call is in order here.

      Also to Rastweet, I think a set will check/raise the turn here more often than not. Same with two pair. They should want to protect it vs straight draws.

      Villain is a perfect donkey. He donkey-shoved a quite scary river with air. I called with a middle three of a kind.

      Hello EinsteinFranck,

      You have to Bet the flop & turn bigger, we want to protect our hand and get value from worse. But otherwise fold the river, not many have what you have beat. :)

      Best Regards.
