      Villain is 29/18 through 18 hands, virtually an unknown.

      With the flush out there and such an agressive line, I just stuggled to put him on anything other than a bigger set or a flush...maybe, maybe AJ. I find it hard to believe he would try and get three streets of value with any Ax type hand or an overpair on the flop which didn't become a set - maybe I am just giving the guy too much credit?

      I thought about maybe check/raising the turn, then giving up to any 4bet or call. Decided it was too fancy of a play for the microstakes, do you agree?

      As played, was I getting the odds to call the river anyhow?

      Hey,

      I don't play fullring so don't want to comment too much. But I think the best play here would be to c/r the flop to ~0.35-0.4 for value and protection.

      Hello McMurphy,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Check/Raise the flop right away, why do you even slowplay and give him an option to easily draw if he has any. But otherwise as played for the given odds you can still Call it down, the guy could easily even have some Ax hands or even 2pairs which he also Bets the river for value.

      Best Regards.
