      Hey veriz,

      78/44/50h huge fish. He never folds to 3bet nor to Cbets.

      I could check here now that my hands isn't an overpair anymore but vs that guy I think there is still enough of value.
      My plan is also to barrel a blank turn to check behind the river.

      This completes some draws so I went for potcontrol

      Flop is fine for sure, this guy won't fold a j/9 i supose and besides he will have a draw occasionally.
      The turn does complete some hands, but i dont think we should immediately give him credit for a made hand. The problem that comes with a check-behind is that it wel induce a bluff on the river. I think this villain is the type of villain who is capable of bluffing on a river with atc. It might be a nice move to make a small turn bet, in order to prevent a river bluff. You seem to give villain 0 respect so I think you would call a small bet on a blank river, wouldn't you? If that is the case i rather make the small bet myself on the turn ;) If he checks the river we have an easy check behind.

      On this river a check behind is the best play for sure.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      I would have played the same way in 3bet pot, even though he is super-loose I doubt that there is tons of value from a lot worse. Even a fish most likely wont try to bluff the river.

      Turn doesn't complete only FD but also SD as T8 which fishy could even have. :D

      Best Regards.
