      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q A

      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($19) 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $12, Hero folds

      Results:
      $19 pot ($0.95 rake)
      Final Board: 9 Q 8 T 5
      Hero mucked Q A and lost (-$9.25 net)
      SB mucked and won $18.05 ($8.80 net)


      His x/c on the flop puzzles me a little but I think he is usually going to have some draw/ draw + pair/ medium value hand.

      Given the range I put him on I don't expect him to turn his made hands into bluffs and quite all the draws hit so therefore I fold.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      If we are Checking the turn then most likely it's very difficult for us to continue there. Instead I'd just Bet the turn myself thin block-bet something like $10 cause I assume he isn't bluffing there that often whilst I see FD CBetting himself. Also gives us the option to see very often his cards on the river by Checking behind.

      Best Regards.

      Hey,

      what are you blockbetting against?
      The only hand we beat is KQ...

      We are making overpairs to fold, we are making some 2pair combos to fold and also many more hands whatever he could have in his 3betting range, plus avoid him taking a stab on the river against which we obviously have to fold it. Our Check behind range rarely calls the river unless we have Jx.

      Plus he is rarely Check/Raising the turn and only hand which I see him to continue is Jx & stronger.
