      Hey veriz!!

      Another interesting hand.

      Villain:
      30/24/239h LAG!

      VS steal BB:
      Fold = 42%
      Call = 37%
      3bet = 21%

      Raise cbet 0/5

      Foldtocbet 43%

      4.83 overall AF. AFq flop = 50%, AFq Turn = 31%

      18 wtsd with 33 w$sd.


      Flop

      The hardest part in this hand. We can just fold but that must be too weak cause this is a perfect board to bluffraise on. We can call and call down on non haerts turn/river.
      We can raise but with that we isolate ourselves vs 55/66/AK I guess.

      So to me it seems like call>raise>>>>>>>>>>>>>>fold.

      Turn/River looks more std as played.

      H2

      I took the raise line but I just can't profitably play raise/broke here. So here I should call?

      vs unknown but solid on 12h.

      nh, i agree with your assessment. the river complets 23, the turn already completed 74 and 97, and obviously the hearts hit, so we're almost always beat at this point

      though ive heard this thing about calling the turn and folding the river to be burning money....curious about veriz' view

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Well, calling on such a draw-heavy flop and without even having any backdoors ourselves just wouldn't make sense. We are very often just giving him the opportunity to hit something and maybe even let him Check behind the turn. I would make my decision right on the flop what I am going to do. Either 3bet it and get it in or just fold it.

      Best Regards.

      And what do we do? Broke or fold? :D

      2nd hand is just a bet/f I guess?
