      1)Here against a fish i slowplay. On flop my plan was to let him to bluff. On river the same plan to bluf on A because A could be in his range.

      The only hands to slowplay in NL2 in my opinion are usually just full houses and quads, because the opponent can almost never have hit cards, because you hold them all. Of course there are exceptions but I don't think this is one of them.

      Here is not a good time for slowplay, I think you missed a lot of value. You're probably getting good value from most single :club: hands, but when you check it down to the river and the draw misses, of course you get no value at all.

      What are the fish's stats? Does he have crazy high aggression? Is that why you chose to slowplay? I think you probably could have got him to call a pot sized bet on flop with FD (and he's then pot committed).

      I think a better line would be betting the flop, then checking the Ace on the turn to induce a bluff on the river, which will probably be all in given how small his stack is. If he's folding flop you're probably not gonna make much money anyway.

      Hello MeAmor22,

      Bet the flop, Bet the turn and so on. :) You don't need to slowplay like that, if he doesn't have a hand he isn't going to pay you anyways.

      Best Regards.
