      bet vs missed cb = ?

      seems like a fine spot to just give up. the reg will be more honest with the calling station on the pot.

      Hello Darkyd10,

      I just love those plays. :D What are you trying to represent with Check/Raise on the flop? Nothing? When FD completes, how many hands do you make to fold? Not many? Think of it and then come back and can post your thoughts. :P

      Best Regards.

      cr flop wud represent a big draw by my side

      i think villain is betting probably all his preflop range so the Ax and pairs in order to take the pot

      Thinking he cant call a cr with Ax there wud prob call pairs, but then he cant really react to a complete flush because thats what i rep there, either cant react with small pairs to lots of agression, so i bet turn


      I know im overthinking things probably lool


      bet fold vs 2 with fish in hand didnt seem good idea, i knew that reg wud almost 100% bet there with his entire range so...i get to c what fish does if i let him bet instead of me plus i prob have the same fe still vs the reg cause his range is the same as it was preflop

      it might be really bad and strange move but i like to test them anyways

      wud like to hear your thoughts about it,

      btw when would a move like this be acceptable?

      just c/f? :D

      i pick this line when i have THE nuts (FH) and expect a good villain to float me often. leveling war = i win. :f_biggrin:

      Yes, it's a Check/Fold.

      Check/Raise as a big draw, I hope you really joking. :D Cause you would almost 99% of the time CB with it and never isolate yourself vs strong range. What big draw, I am curious. :D

      Acceptable? Why would you ever consider Check/Raising as being PFA?

      so basically if i had a big hand lets say trips or full or over my line wouldnt make sense and id stack an agressive oponent cause he wud lvl himself?

      i had no idea if this line even made sense thats why i posted it xD also why i tryed becuz the line exists lol


      been really curious about it cause cr as pfr makes no sense but what wud happen if i did it so i tryed lol

      becuz if this line is 99% bluff, then i can do it for value and destroy a bigger range, ofc vs agressive who wont check back

      If you had the nuts then again it would be totally pointless while you could just Bet/Bet & ship da money on the river. What's the purpose of it? :D
